RumbleLab is not directed to children and children are not eligible to use our Services. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 18, and no part of our Site or Service is designed to attract people under 18. If we later learn that a user is under 18, we will take steps to remove that user's Personal Information from our databases and to prevent the user from utilizing the Site and the Service
Howdy! The team at RumbleLab exists to give families a way to come together learn and get their kids excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). We are introducing basic science principles through project kits that help you come together and build. You, (the parent/guardian) work with your kid to use the supplies in the box to build a contraption to complete a challenge. For the innovation challenge, you(the parent/guardian and Registered User) share your kid’s build on social media (twitter/facebook) for our team at RumbleLab to review. Once the challenge is over, we will pick winners for different categories (most innovative, fastest build, best first timer, etc.)
In this policy we describe what information we collect, how we collect it, and what we do with it (the policy covers only information collected and used on RumbleLab.com). RumbleLab takes your child’s privacy very seriously. We expect parents, when sharing their child’s build on social media to take care in the amount of information they disclose. Because of this we work very hard to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, (COPPA) a U.S. law that governs the use and collection of information online from kids under 13. To learn more about this law, and about how to protect your kids on interactive online websites, visit http://www.ftc.gov for information from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
What information we collect and how
User registration is initiated with the purchase of a "crate" or project kit from us. We only have access to personally identifying information voluntarily submitted by the user through email, social media or direct contact. Upon purchase of the crate, we will require a personally identifying information including name, shipping address, email address, phone number, financial information (credit card number, expiration date, ccv code). We will also may request some non-required personal info to make your RumbleLab experience a more personalized one (child’s birthday, child’s name, child’s interest, gender). We limit the information we collect from you both actively and passively (web tracking mechanisms such as “cookies”). Cookies will only be used as necessary to participate in the community. Once registered you are referred to as a “Registered User.”
Because a purchase is needed to participate in the challenge, we request personally identifiable information from you. This information includes name, email address, shipping address and financial information such as credit card information and expiration date.
We use third parties to fulfill duties such as shipping, payment processing and communication (email/phone). Upon purchasing, we share only necessary, personally identifying information with the third party/service provider to ensure your package makes it to your home in a timely manner. We will also use email and telephone to communicate with you for any questions regarding your order.
These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifying information for promotional purposes.
How about Cookies?
We use them, YEP! But only when necessary. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer that allows our website to remember and store your preferences and also for analytics purposes. For instance, you add an item to your shopping cart on one page; on the next page your browser will look at your cookies and see that you had one crate in your shopping cart. Otherwise, you would go to checkout, and there would be nothing in your cart. Cookies are also a vital tool in helping RumbleLab improve our site experience. We use both persistent and session cookies. Persistent cookies remains on your machine and is used for information related to your login. We also use session cookies, which are used during one visit and destroyed upon closing your browser. In general, a cookie is a non-personal bit of information. If for whatever reason you want to disable cookies, you can, but expect your RumbleLab experience to be affected.
Third Party Cookies
We also collect other types of Personal Information that you provide to us voluntarily, such as your operating system and version, product registration number, and other requested information if you contact us via e-mail regarding support.
We also collect and maintain records of information that you voluntarily provide to us. For example, we may ask you to participate in a survey, and may ask you to provide Personal Information, such as age, gender or other demographic data. If you enter into a contest or promotion on our Site, we will collect the information your provide to participate in the contest or promotion. If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.

How RumbleLab uses the information it collects
We will not sell, rent or share this information with any third party for promotional purposes. Your information is used solely to ship you the package, grant you access into the community, communicate with you if the need arises and ship the winner a prize. We only collect information that you voluntarily disclose with us during the registration, challenge interaction and communication between us and you. The only time we will share your information with a third party is to fulfil your request, for example, to ship your order and bill your credit card.
Design submissions are stored on social networking sites outside of the control of RumbleLab. RumbleLab will only save posts from users that are winning submissions or other top tier candidates. Please be considerate about the amount of information you share about your kid on the web. We take your child’s safety seriously and advise only sharing a picture/video and description of the build. We for no reason need details of your kid. However, upon winning, we will announce a winner. If you would like your kid to have a brief description, we will work with you to keep the information as pertinent as possible but this is done within the confines of the RumbleLab site. If you choose to share your child’s winning innovation to your own social site, it is done so at your own discretion.
We also use the information that you give to us (including your contact information such as email address) to make our Services the best possible experience for you. For instance, we may use your information to:
- customize the Services you choose to receive
- manage your account and your queries
- improve our Services
- meet our legal and regulatory obligations and protect our legitimate interests
- carry out research and analysis, training and quality assurance
- contact you with important service announcements
- if you agree, contact you about other Services and products from RumbleLab that we think may be of interest to you
- if you agree, contact you with advertising from other businesses
Please note, we may monitor, record, store and use any telephone call, email or other communication with you internally for improving our customer service
RumbleLab recognizes the fact that Parents and legal guardians of kids under 13, who are members of RumbleLab have certain rights under COPPA. The only personally identifiable information we collect on kids is the parents email address, parents name and parents address. Never will RumbleLab knowingly collect information from kids under the age of 13. All information is volunteered by the parents. If we feel that a U13 may be interacting, we will investigate and take the appropriate action. It is the parent’s decision whether or not they share their kids name with the build submission. A kid’s personal information in no way affects the challenge results. A parent also has the right to share their child’s information upon winning the challenge to be posted on our website. Parents/Guardians have the right to review the information collected that may pertain to their child. Parents/Guardians also have the right to request the information be deleted along with requesting that RumbleLab cease to collect further information from their kids. This can be done so by contacting [email protected] Parents should include their username and reason for contact in the email to expedite the process. RumbleLab may ask further questions to verify the parents/guardian identity when asking to review or delete their kid’s information.
