Trust Elevate’s Privacy Policy

Trust Elevate knows that you care how your information is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.

Trust Elevate is committed to delivering trusted straightforward solutions to help you manage which websites and apps your child, (below 13 years of age), accesses. Also,  Trust Elevate puts you, on behalf of your child, in control of which data processors associated with each site or app can process your child’s data.

This privacy statement describes how Trust Elevate collects and uses the personal information you provide. Safeguarding the personal information you provide is very important to us. 

Article 8 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) explicitly recognises the role of a parent as the intermediary between a child and a technology company. It states that:

Where the child is below the age of 16 years, such processing shall be lawful only if and to the extent that consent is given or authorised by the holder of parental responsibility over the child.

TrustElevate enables the Verification of an assertion of Parental Responsibility (VPR) for a child in a Verified Age (VA) band. If the Verified Age is <12 years old, the verified parent provides consent (VPC), to process their child’s data, on behalf of their child, and can revoke consent at any time.

When the Verified Age (VA) band indicates a young person aged between 13–16 years of age, that young person can deny or give consent to data processing, themselves.

Crucially, apps and platforms do not receive any personal data gathered for the verification checks. Instead, they receive a token from Trust Elevate that indicates the Verified Age (VA) band, and the status of consent either a parent on behalf of their child, or a teen’s grants to the app or platform the child wishes to access. The status of consent is either, granted, denied or revoked.

Collection and Use

We collect the following personal information from you:

Contact Information you supply  – your name, email, phone number and your child’s name and date of birth, name, email address and phone number and your child’s name and date of birth, is encrypted on your device. The encrypted information is checked against secure sources, and a yes /no, tokenised response is generated.

With your consent, we use this information to:

  • Verify your assertion of parental responsibility for your child.
  • Verify the age of your child (<16 years old)

GDPR statement: Trust Elevate does not extract data from databases. Instead, we check for a match against data which a parent has both provided Trust Elevate and authorised the verification of both their parental status and the age band to which their child belongs. Trust Elevate runs the checks against authoritative data sources and generates tokens that detail the strength of the match and the age band the child belongs in, for example, <12 years of age. Trust Elevate, with parental permission, provides those tokens, which contain zero personally identifiable information to the platform a child wishes to access. Trust Elevate aligns with the GDPR and adheres to the principles of data minimisation, accountability and transparency.
