Ensuring Safety and Privacy for Young Artists

Ensuring Safety and Privacy for Young Artists

Bernard Malual

At Doodloosh, we value and prioritize the safety and privacy of our young artists. We understand the importance of creating a secure and enjoyable environment where children can express their creativity freely. We want to shed light on the measures we have put in place to ensure a safe and enriching experience on our platform.

1. Age Verification
We implemented an age verification process inspired by trusted platforms to add an extra layer of security. Parental consent and supervision play crucial roles in confirming a child's presence on our platform.
2. Parental Involvement
To further enhance safety, we require all users to provide their parent or guardian's email during the payment setup process. This step ensures that parents are actively involved and aware of their child's activities on Doodloosh. Users who do not comply are temporarily disabled from selling their art until they complete this essential step.
3. Content Moderation
Doodloosh is heavily moderated to maintain a family-friendly environment. Every artwork uploaded goes through a rigorous approval process. If we identify any content with vulgar or inappropriate material, it is promptly declined, and the user responsible is banned from the platform. Additionally, our system is designed to flag any use of offensive language, further safeguarding our young artists.
4. Restricted Communication
Doodloosh is a marketplace, not a conventional social media platform. We do not support direct interactions like those on social media giants. Instead, communication is limited to email through the parent or guardian's verified email address. This restriction significantly reduces the chances of unauthorized or potentially harmful interactions.
5. Data Collection
We collect only essential information from our users, such as usernames, parent/guardian emails, payment methods, and policies. This data is required to provide a safe and functional platform. It's worth noting that we do not ask for sensitive information like full names or addresses.
6. Legal Compliance
Doodloosh is developed with full compliance with COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act) and the privacy laws of our jurisdiction. We also ensure alignment with child labor laws. Our model draws inspiration from existing youth-selling platforms to maintain legal integrity.

We want to assure you that we are fully committed to providing a secure and welcoming space for young artists. Your feedback is invaluable, and your child's safety is our top priority. If you have any further concerns or questions, please feel free to reach out. At Doodloosh, we remain dedicated to nurturing creativity and protecting our young artists as they embark on their artistic journey.
