We consider all information captured using GoPad Secure to be a private communication between childcare providers and parents. No personal information is shared with any external parties, and communications are only shared with a parent if a provider has explicitly invited the parent to establish communications. All communications are handled via the parent’s email address. In order to create an account on gopadsecure.com users are required to validate their email address and only have visibility to information shared to that specific email address.
Information collected for Children
The information collected from childcare providers during our registration process is the child’s first name, parent’s e-mail address, and birthdate. We collect birthdates to validate age-appropriate daily activities reports. We may collect other personal information in order to improve communication between providers and parents.
