Welcome to Vooks, an online educational platform that provides individuals, families, and schools with a streaming library of animated children’s books. Vooks is brought to you by Vooks, Inc. (“Vooks,” “us,” or “we”) and includes, our applications (“App”), related devices and products (“Products), and our website including and our other online channels (collectively, our “Services”). This Privacy Policy explains how Vooks collects and treats information through our Services and describes your options to control your privacy. Please read it carefully. If you have any questions, please contact


Vooks offers children, families, and schools an entire library of storybooks brought to life with beautiful animation, read-aloud narration, engaging music and sound, and read-along text. We’re educational, safe, and ad-free screen time that inspires a lifelong love of reading! To support children’s privacy through our Services, we offer this summary of our promise to you:

This Privacy Policy is part of and governed by our Terms of Service. We may provide additional, separate notices to you about our privacy practices, each of which will be considered part of this Privacy Policy. Note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any third-party platforms or services or to any third-party services linked or accessible from our Services.


You and your child may only use Vooks’s Services if you consent the privacy practices described in this Privacy Policy. You consent on behalf of your child as the parent or legal guardian of a child who wants to use the Services (in each case, the child’s “Parent”). If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, do not use, or permit your child to use, our Services. BY ACCESSING OR USING OUR SERVICES, CREATING AN ACCOUNT FOR YOURSELF OR YOUR CHILD, OR PERMITTING YOUR CHILD TO USE THE SERVICES IN ANY MANNER, YOU CONSENT TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND OUR TERMS OF SERVICE.


If you register to use the Services as an educator or administrator of a school, school district, local education agency (“LEA”), or other organization (collectively, “Schools”), you hereby consent to this Privacy Policy on behalf of yourself and all students and other end users of your School (“Students”) and you agree that you are authorized to provide consent for all Students that use the Services through your account or instruction. Schools may provide Students with access to the Services through a School instructor’s account or through the School’s learning management system or other technology platform (the School’s “LMS”). The School, and not Vooks, is solely responsible for determining and obtaining any Parent or other consent for Students that may be required under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), or other applicable laws. 

You agree that Vooks is a “school official” with a legitimate educational interest for the purposes of FERPA and the laws and regulations covered by the California Student Privacy Alliance. Vooks generally does not collect Personal Information (defined below) or Students to provide the Services, but if we do, Parents have the right to request that the information be deleted, not used, amended, anonymized, de-identified, or aggregated. If a School is an LEA, any Student data transmitted to Vooks is the property of and under the control of the LEA.


As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. Personal Information falls within certain categories, for example:

Not all information about you is protected as Personal Information. For example, publicly available information, aggregated information (e.g., data summaries or reports with Personal Information removed), and anonymized information that cannot be linked back to an individual may be exempt from privacy laws that are applicable to you.  


Our Services are designed to support Parents and Schools for use by children of all ages, but Vooks never collects Personal Information from children without consent from the child’s Parent or School. Vooks will never knowingly collect Personal Information from a child under the age of 18 without this consent. If we discover that a child has submitted Personal Information to us without the required consent, we will delete their Personal Information from our systems. If you become aware of any unauthorized submission of information to Vooks, please contact us at Vooks strongly encourages Parents and Schools to actively guide a child’s use of the Services and to discuss guidelines for internet use. 


Vooks only collects, uses, retains, and discloses Personal Information as described below, and only as reasonably necessary and proportionate to provide the Services or for other purposes stated in this Privacy Policy or at the time of collection. We collect Personal Information with consent, with a legitimate interest, or as authorized or required by law. 

More specifically, Vooks collects identifiers, commercial history, biometrics, and internet and similar activity from:

In addition to the specific uses described above, Vooks reserves the right to use the Personal Information collected to: (i) protect your privacy and enforce this Privacy Policy; (ii) comply with a law, regulation, legal process or court order; (iii) monitor your compliance with any of your agreements with us; (iv) if we believe it is necessary, to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be causing injury to you, to Vooks, or to others; or (v) fulfill any other purpose to which you consent.


Vooks retains Personal Information as long as necessary to achieve the purposes of its collection. For example, we will retain account information while the account is active and until the Account Creator requests that we delete it. Student and Account Creator data is deleted or returned to the School at the end of the School’s contract to use the Services unless we are required by law to retain it. Cookie data may be retained for as little as a few minutes or up to two years after collection, after which time it is permanently deleted from our systems. We remove emails from our recipient list after one year of inactivity. Vooks reserves the right to retain data for longer periods as required by law or court order or if doing so is critical to our business. 


Vooks will only disclose Personal Information to the third parties as described in this section, with your permission, or as required by law. In the last 12 months, we have disclosed Personal Information for a business purpose to:
