Common Sense Networks operates Sensical, a free, kid-focused streaming service offering thousands of entertaining, age-appropriate, short-form videos and podcasts for ages 2-12 that support kids' social, emotional, and cognitive development. We are dedicated to protecting your privacy and handling any personal information we obtain from you with care and respect. The Common Sense Networks Privacy Policy (the "Policy" or the "Privacy Policy") is designed to answer your questions regarding how we collect, protect, use and share information obtained through the Common Sense Networks service including our website at and other applications ("apps") that we operate and that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the "Services"). The Services are intended for use by adults over the age of 18 and their children for home or personal use and enjoyment. The Service is not intended for use by students in K - 12 school environments or classrooms. A separate Children’s Privacy Policy is also included as part of this general Privacy Policy. We hope this information increases your confidence in Common Sense Networks and enhances your experience on our Services.

Please see our separate Terms of Use, which governs the use of the Services.  We encourage you to read this Policy before using the Services, and not to use the Services if you disagree with any part of this Policy. By using the Services or by clicking a box that states that you accept or agree to this Policy, you signify your agreement to the terms and conditions of this Policy.

The Services are controlled and operated by Common Sense Networks, a public benefit corporation in the United States. Subject to our obligations (if any) under our Terms of Use, we may limit the availability of the Services, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we choose, at any time in our sole discretion.


A. Personal Information

In this Policy, when we use the term "Personal Information", we mean any information that can be used to identify (directly or indirectly) or contact a specific individual, such as the individual's name, postal address, email address, telephone number, or online identifier. We collect different types of Personal Information depending on whether you are a registered user or not, as explained below, to provide our Services and carry out legitimate interests. For information on the collection, use and disclosure of children's personal information, please see the Children’s Privacy Policy below.

All Visitors: Visitors to the Services that are over 18 may register and opt-in to receive Common Sense Networks email newsletters by providing their email address and zip code. Please note that our newsletters are not currently available to any Registered Users under the age of 18. If you are a visitor who is under 18 you should not attempt to sign-up for our newsletters.

We also may collect Personal Information through surveys or questionnaires. Your participation in surveys and questionnaires is entirely voluntary.

Adult Registered Users: If you wish to become a Registered User, you must be 18 or older and provide us with certain Personal Information as part of the registration process, including, for example, name, email address, password and age. We additionally ask for zip code or country of residence. The Service does not allow for Social Sign-on or log-in. Registration must be done directly on the Service.

If you are an adult Registered User, you may also optionally choose to provide us with information about your children to create profile(s) for each child, such as their ages and first names, so we can present an experience tailored to the age of the child in the Services and within our email newsletters. The profiles that you may create for children are not publicly available on the Service.

Child Users: To learn about our practices regarding children's privacy, please read our Children’s Privacy Policy below. We do not collect Personal Information from children. Additionally, Children may not register for the Services. The only information collected on children will be optionally provided by their parent(s) or caregiver as part of that adult’s registration for the Service. Such information is limited to the child’s first name (should the adult registered user decide to provide it) and the child’s age (should the adult registered user decide to provide it). Such information you may provide to create a profile for your children will not be publicly available on the Service. If you are a parent or guardian that discovers or learns that a child under 13 that is in your care has created an account on the Service, you may contact us at compliance@commonsensenetworks.comto request that such information be removed, and we will take immediate action to do so.

Account Deletion: While we do not collect any PII data of children, parents may always access & delete their child's profile through Sensical's ParentZone. If you decide that you no longer want to be a Registered User, you can delete your account and your child’s profile information at any time. To delete your account, login to your account, visit your Account Settings page, and then click the "Close my Account" link located towards the bottom of the page. Once you delete your account, all of your Personal Information stored in your account and Profile on our site will be removed. Or, you can contact us at compliance@commonsensenetworks.comand request that we delete your content and account for you.

While we do allow registered users to delete their accounts and profiles on the Service, note that the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) does not apply to the Services because we do not buy or sell consumer Personal Information. However, we support the legislation and encourage you to learn more about your rights at

B. Collection of Information by Our Service Providers

We use third-party service providers ("Payment Services"), to handle subscriptions, and other payment transactions submitted to our Services. If you wish to make payment, you will be directed to a webpage that is hosted by a Payment Service (or its service providers) and not by us (such page, a "Payment Service Page"). Any Personal Information that you provide through a Payment Service Page will be collected directly by a Payment Service rather than by us, and will be subject to that Payment Service's privacy policy rather than this Policy. We have no control over, and shall not be responsible for, a Payment Service's use of information collected through a Payment Service Page. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT ADDRESS THE COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION THROUGH ANY PAYMENT SERVICE PAGE OR THE PRIVACY OR INFORMATION PRACTICES OF THE PAYMENT SERVICES.

Certain information, like aggregated information or high-level location information, such as the browser language and country during the user session, is treated as non-personal information unless applicable law requires otherwise. We may use or disclose such information for any purpose. We will utilize analytics solutions, which ultimately leverage cookies. We are not sharing or selling this data with third parties.

For instance, we may compile and share aggregate data about the geographic locations or other demographics of our Registered Users, provided that this information does not personally identify any of these Registered Users.

We may share Personal Information about you with third-parties solely for the purpose of enabling them to provide these services to us.

When we engage a third-party who will need to access and process your Personal Information as part of their services, we ascertain that the third-party is capable and obligated to provide at least the same level of data privacy and protection as we hold ourselves to. Our third-parties are required to notify us if they determine they can no longer meet the expected level of data privacy and protection, and we monitor for compliance to our data protection terms based on the nature of the services being provided.

Law Enforcement; Emergencies; Compliance.

Personal Information about you may be transferred, stored, and processed by us or the third-parties we work with in countries whose data protection laws and regulations may be different to those of your country. We allow transfers of Personal Information made between countries or regions in a fashion that complies with applicable law.


We keep your Personal Information only for as long as it is warranted to provide our Services, fulfill our commitments to you, and/or adhere to legal or regulatory requirements. If you are a Registered User, we keep your Personal Information for the duration of our relationship. Certain Personal Information may be kept and archived for longer though, as required for recordkeeping purposes or backing up Services’ data for example. When Personal Information has expired, or is no longer needed and does not have to be retained, we may return, delete, destroy, or anonymize it, epending on what method is systematically and procedurally possible, most secure, and what our related retention commitments are.


Advertising. CSN is committed to the highest standards for safe kids advertising and complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and all relevant regulations. In order to make the Service free for users, however, the Service will contain advertising, but the advertising will only contain contextual display advertising and will not use User Information to target advertisements. Please refer to Section II.A for relevant uses of Personal Information as relates to advertising operations. In addition, you may request a copy of the CSN Ad Guidelines by emailing

Links. For your convenience and information, we may provide links to websites and other third-party services and content that is not owned or operated by us. The third-party websites, services and content to which we link may have separate privacy notices or policies. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any entity that we do not own or control. The inclusion of a link or such third-party services/content on the Services does not imply our endorsement of the linked site, or that content or service.

Security. We seek to use reasonable administrative, organizational, technical, and physical measures to help protect the Personal Information you provide to us from loss, misuse, and unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Only authorized personnel have access to Personal Information you provide to us and each employee with access to Personal Information is obligated to maintain its integrity and confidentiality. User data for the Services is encrypted both in transit and at rest. Unfortunately, no data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure or error free. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, you should immediately notify us in accordance with the section below entitled "Contacting Us." Please note that if you notify us by physical mail, this will delay the time it takes for us to respond to the problem. We follow all industry standard security protocols and safeguards against breach, but in the unlikely case of a security breach, we will notify all Registered Users of such breach within 48 hours of its occurrence.

Changes to the Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to change this Policy, and any changes to our Policy will become effective upon our posting of the revised Policy on the Site. Use of the Services following such changes constitutes your acceptance of the revised Policy then in effect. If we make changes to this Policy we will take reasonable steps to alert users of the Services that the Policy has been updated.
