Almentia KG, exists to serve parents, students, and teachers, and strives to provide a safe, positive experience for children. We do not collect information directly from children. Any students under the age of 18 wishing to use the website must be registered by a parent or legal guardian. Almentia KG does not sell or market directly to minors and always seeks the appropriate authorization whenever we identify a minor attempting to purchase a service. Whenever we collect Personally Identifiable Information, or “PII”, we do so with the sole purpose of supporting the educational purposes of which the site was designed. We do not publish or distribute any PII of students to third parties, and we try to limit access to third party web sites that may request PII. We also prohibit students from publicly posting or distributing PII without prior parental consent. In addition, in an effort to further protect children who use the website, http://www.almentiaacademy.com does not use the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity to entice children to divulge more information than is needed to participate in an activity.
Identity of Registrants

However, a user’s personal information will never be shared with third parties for advertising or marketing purposes. User information may be shared with partners, business affiliates or third party service providers who work for Almentia KG and operate some of its functionalities, such as hosting services, streaming services and credit card processing. However, these third parties are established service providers, who are bound to practice adequate security measures and only use user information for the sole purpose of providing the services. A user’s information may also be shared with law enforcement or other third parties as required by law or if we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or other legal process.
Almentia KG has appropriate security measures in place to safeguard against unauthorized access to the personal information collected at our site, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as electronic security systems and password protections. We only store passwords in an encrypted format and we do not store any credit card information.
Parents or legal guardians registering with the site are asked to provide an email address. We use email addresses, username ID, and passwords of student’s accounts to authenticate logins, allow access to the paid content and monitor compliance. The email is also used to authenticate users when requesting technical support. The username ID and passwords are all encrypted when stored.

We do not require any PII of the students who will be using our services during the registration process or at any other time, other than the student’s name, age, and grade.
Display of Registrant Information
Information regarding students, parents or legal guardians registered with Almentia KG is not viewable or searchable by people or automated systems, such as the automated indexing software utilized by Google, Yahoo, and Bing, on our website.
Collection, Use, Storage and Disclosure of Student Information
Parents or legal guardians control what student information is provided to Almentia KG. Information that parents or legal guardians choose to enter regarding students should always be limited to information that is relevant to a legitimate educational purpose. The only information that is required to set up a Student Dashboard is a first name, last name, username ID, and password. However, parents typically provide additional information about the student’s subjects and ability as well.
Almentia KG in partnership stores the data created by students so that the students and the students’ parents can access it and use it for educational purposes. Parents are able to review and manage student information at any time by logging into their accounts. Almentia KG automatically deletes any materials created by the student, as well as any data, reports or other information relating to a student when the Tuition is cancelled. Therefore, parents are encouraged to print out any student data, reports or materials they want prior to cancelling their Tuition or closing a Student Dashboard. Once a membership has been cancelled, the information is deleted by Almentia KG, and it cannot be retrieved after 30 days.
Almentia KG is committed to protecting student data against unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. To this end, we have implemented reasonable and appropriate safeguards when collecting and storing student data in our database. Governance policies and access controls are in place to ensure that the student information linked to each parent or educator (depending on the type of account) is separated, and parents and/or legal guardians only have access to their own student data. Only limited Almentia KG personnel have access to the database, and they only access the database when necessary to provide services. While we strive to maintain best industry-standard privacy and security practices, it should be noted that no industry system is fail proof. In the event we learn of an actual data breach, loss or disaster, we will notify the affected user(s), and as appropriate, coordinate with the user(s) to support its notification of affected individuals, students and parents when there is a substantial risk of harm from the breach or a legal duty to provide notification.
It is the responsibility of parents and legal guardians to supervise children using the website and teach them about security and privacy. Almentia KG recommend that parents and educational institutions provide the following information to all children: Kids’ Rules for Online Safety.
