European Privacy Policy for Children

Last Modified: August 11, 2023

We are WeVideo, Inc. and we provide video editing tools that you can use to create videos, podcasts, slideshows and GIFs – these are our ‘services’. If you (or your parent, guardian, or school) have signed up to use the WeVideo services, we need to use some information about you – this is your ‘personal data’. We are in charge of what happens to your personal data. This Privacy Policy tells you how and why we use your personal data and how we keep it safe.


For more detail, take a look at our Privacy Policy (or ask your parent or guardian to help you understand it). This European Privacy Policy for Children applies to people 13 years of age or under in Europe. If something we say in this European Privacy Policy for Children is different to what we say in our Privacy Policy, our Privacy Policy is correct. 


Where do we get your personal data from?


As you may have guessed, we mostly get your personal data from you! If you are 13 years old or older, when you register for the WeVideo services, we will ask you for some personal data. However, if you are under 13, then you must obtain consent from your parent or guardian before we ask for your personal data.


We might also receive your personal data from other places – for example, your Facebook or Instagram accounts, if you link your accounts to your WeVideo profile. We will only do this if you have given us permission.


What is your personal data?


Your personal data is information that we have about you. 


This includes information we need to create a profile for you, such as: 

  • your name, date of birth and postal/email address; and
  • your WeVideo username and password.


It also includes information you give us when you use the WeVideo services or interact with us, such as:

  • your photos, videos, music that you use to edit videos; and
  • emails that you send to us if you need help with something.


We’ll also collect other personal data that we need to provide the WeVideo services to you and make the WeVideo services as good as they can be – for example, technical data about your mobile phone or computer, or how you use our editing software or website.


For more information on other personal data we have about you, see our Privacy Policy. 


What do we do with your personal data?


  • We use your personal data to provide the WeVideo services. For example, it makes it possible for you to create and maintain a WeVideo profile, to invite friends of yours to join the platform, and to send us any questions that you want to ask us.


  • We use your personal data to understand how you use the WeVideo services, which will help us to improve the WeVideo services and develop new tools for your creative projects.


  • Like lots of other websites, we may place tiny files called “cookies” onto your device. Cookies can do many things, including helping our website to work properly and helping us to improve it for you. If we don’t need to put cookies on your device, we’ll only ever put them on your device with your permission.


  • We use your personal data to help us to make sure that we have followed the law. For instance, one of the first questions we will ask you is how old you are, so that we know whether your parent or guardian needs to give consent to allow you to use the WeVideo services.


We only use your personal data when we have a good reason and when the law allows us to. If you (or your parent or guardian) would like more information, please see our Privacy Policy or email


Where does your personal data go?


We may send your personal data to other companies where they help us provide the WeVideo services. Some of these companies may be in countries outside Europe – for example, in the United States of America. If we do this, we will try to make sure that your personal data is protected in a similar way as it is in Europe. 


How long do we keep your personal data?


We will only keep your personal data for as long as we really need it. When we don’t need your personal data anymore, we will delete or ‘anonymise’ it (which means making it impossible to recognise you from it).


What are your rights?


You may be able to ask us to do certain things with your personal data. For example, you may be able to:


  • ask to see your data;
  • ask us to correct your data. If you think we’ve got any of it wrong, we can fix it;
  • ask us to stop using your data for certain reasons;
  • ask us to delete your data; and
  • ask for a copy of your data.

Sometimes, we won’t be able to help if you ask us to do one of the things shown above. For example, if you ask us to delete your personal data, we may need to keep it for some other reason - such as because the law says we have to. We will always try to explain to you if something like this happens.


Contact us


If you would like to get in touch to ask a question about your personal data, please email us Your parent or guardian can also get in touch with us. 


If you are unhappy with how we use your data, you (or your parent or guardian) can contact your local data protection authority. To find out how to do this, please see our Privacy Policy.


Future changes


We may change some of what we have said here from time to time. If we make any big changes, we will make sure to tell you by sending you (or your parent or guardian) an email or putting a message on our website.
