Curious World is offered by Kidsy Limited, 22 Upper Ground, London, SE1 9PD, trading as Curious World. Kidsy Limited’s registered office is at Springfield House, 23 Oatlands Drive, Weybridge, United Kingdom, KT13 9LZ.

By downloading and using the Curious World App and/or opening a Curious World Account, you agree to comply with these Terms of Use. Also, you agree to ensure that your child or children comply with these Terms. We may, at our sole discretion, modify any of these Terms at any time, and your continued use of the Curious World App and services will be deemed acceptance of such modifications.

To use Curious World you must open an account with us. There are two tiers of Curious World Accounts: Free Accounts and Subscription Accounts. If you take out a Subscription Account the terms below under “Subscription Account” will also apply to you. The Free Account Section applies to all Account Holders. Free account holders are entitled to access the App and also to access free content. Subscription Account holders are also entitled to access all App content and also to access and manage their account dashboard at www.curiousworld.com.

Opening a Curious World Account

To use Curious World, you must first open an account with us (the “Account”). To do so you must:

  • be at least 18 years old; and
  • provide complete and accurate registration information;
  • provide a valid working email account at which you can receive communications from Curious World about your Account and your or your children’s uses of the Service.

We use an age-gating process as part of the process of opening an account. If we consider you do not meet the above criteria due to the age-gating process or otherwise, we may, at our choice, either request confirmation of the above criteria, or deactivate the account.

Once you have opened your Account, you may establish up to four (4) child profile subaccounts (each, a “Child Profile”) by providing a name and birthdate for each child and by selecting a different avatar (from an assortment of pre-set available designs) for each Child Profile. We encourage use of a first name or nickname only to set up a Child Profile. The user name and avatar will appear in the Curious World App’s interface so each child can identify and log in to their own Child Profile.

You may set up, manage or change Child Profiles by logging in to your Curious World Account which is accessible at the Curious World Site or, on a more limited basis, through the Curious World App.

Passwords; Responsibility for Users

As part of setting up an Account, you will be asked to provide a password to use to access your Account. Please keep this password safe and secure.

You may not share your Curious World Account with more than the number of authorized users.

Change in Service or Terms

Any description of how the Curious World Account works should not be considered a representation or obligation with respect to how the Curious World Account will always work.

We reserve the right to make changes to the Curious World Account and changes to these Terms of Use consistent with applicable law.

General

These Terms of Use shall be governed in all respects by the laws of England and Wales without giving effect to its conflicts of law provisions. Both parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced. Kidsy’s failure to act with respect to non-compliance by a user does not waive its right to act with respect to subsequent or similar non-compliance. These Terms of Use, together with the Privacy Policy and the Subscription Terms of Service below, as applicable, set forth the entire understanding and agreement between us with respect to the subject matter of these Terms of Use and supersede any prior or contemporaneous understanding, whether written or oral.

Subscription Terms

The following terms and conditions apply to Subscription Accounts only.

Subscription Accounts entitle you to access to content which is not freely available on the App, such as certain books, games and video content and to access certain features of the Curious World service, such as tracking your children’s usage of the Curious World App and enjoying age-appropriate and/or abilities-based recommendations for your children, and off-line content when provided by Curious World. You may also access and manage your account via your personalised on-line dashboard at www.curiousworld.com. All subscriptions must currently be made via iTunes / App Store.

Trial Period

We may at our discretion offer free promotional trial periods, or discounted subscriptions to Curious World. Such promotional trials are, unless otherwise stated, offered on an "opt-out" basis, meaning that, at the end of the stated promotional trial period, your access to Curious World will continue, and your trial subscription will be automatically converted to a paid subscription, unless you cancel the trial before it ends. When you sign-up for a subscription including for a promotional trial, you will be asked to select a subscription plan and period (e.g., monthly or annual) which will start at the end of your promotional trial unless you cancel before its end. If you do cancel before the end of the trial, there will be no charges to the payment method you provided; except for any applicable discounted promotional trial fee.

Subscription Fees and Renewals

Subscription fees are payable at the start of a subscription period or renewal. Your subscription will renew automatically at the end of the applicable subscription period, unless you cancel it. If you previously subscribed to Curious World through the mobile app via Apple iTunes Store, you will be required to re-subscribe to a monthly or yearly subscription plan with an automatic renewal feature at the end of your current subscription period.

When you sign up through the Curious World App, Apple will ask you for information for a payment method to hold on file and authorisation to charge you for the subscription period you elect, as provided above, at the end of such promotional trial. You may cancel a promotional trial at any time; provided, however, that no refunds will be given for payments made in connection with a discounted promotional trial. Because Apple bills in advance for a subscription, if you are signing up for a free promotional trial, in some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorisation; however, no charges will be made against the payment method if you cancel prior to the end of your free promotional trial period.

IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL A CURIOUS WORLD SUBSCRIPTION, CURIOUS WORLD WILL CONTINUE TO BE AVAILABLE AND YOUR PAYMENT METHOD VIA YOUR APPLE ITUNES STORE ACCOUNT WILL CONTINUE TO BE CHARGED AUTOMATICALLY AT THE PERIODIC SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE RATE THEN IN EFFECT FOR THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD; PROVIDED, WE SHALL GIVE YOU ADVANCE NOTICE OF MATERIAL INCREASES IN PRICE OR OTHER MATERIAL CHANGES TO THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE. We may send you notifications, emails and/or other reminders prior to, upon and after the expiration of your promotional trial, but we are not obligated to do so. You will continue to be billed by your payment method for the “subscription-period by subscription-period” basis at the previous applicable fee until you cancel your subscription.

Cancellation by Subscriber; No Refunds

You may cancel any promotional trial or paid subscription at any time BUT WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS, TRIAL PERIODS OR UNUSED PERIODS OR SERVICES, unless we determine, in our sole judgment, that unusual circumstances require a refund.

Subscriber Cancellation Process

You should visit your Apple iTunes Store Account to cancel. Further information can be found in our FAQs.

Cancellation by Curious World

We reserve the right to refuse to provide, suspend or discontinue Curious World or to suspend or close your Curious World Account, in whole or in part, at any time for any reason, including convenience, immediately and without notice. If we cancel your subscription or terminate your Curious World Account for convenience and stop your access to Curious World, we may give you a pro-rated refund or credit (which may include a merchandise credit), in our sole discretion, based on the time remaining in your current subscription period. If we terminate your subscription or Curious World Account for your breach of these Terms, without limiting our rights and remedies, you acknowledge and agree that you shall not be entitled to any refunds or credits for any partial subscription periods or unused services, and that we may immediately terminate your access to the Curious World Account, Curious World and/or any other Kidsy offering you may be using or then subscribed to.
