Our Online Services are not targeted to children, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from a child through the Online Services without first obtaining parental consent.
Once a parent signs their child under 13 up for SoulCycle classes in one of our studios, the child (now an "Authorized Child") may, with the parent's permission, use the Online Services to view, pay for and reserve classes, to review their class history, and to otherwise manage reservations (among other things), provided the parent consents to our collection, use, or disclosure of personal information about the Authorized Child through our Online Services. To provide consent, parents must sign a written consent statement in one of our studios when they sign up their Authorized Child to attend classes.
If a parent registers an Authorized Child to take classes, but does not consent to our collection of personal information from the child via the Online Services, the child will not be permitted to use the Online Services and make online reservations and payments, but may still be able to make reservations and payments in a studio.
The Information We Collect About Children
As described below, we collect information about an Authorized Child directly from the child or parent, as well as automatically through the Authorized Child's use of our Online Services.

When a parent gives permission for their Authorized Child to use the Online Services, we collect the Authorized Child's name and email address; the Authorized Child is then able to create and/or link an online account with their studio account. We also collect information from children when they contact us, register for an online account, reserve and pay for classes online, or otherwise interact with our Online Services, including name, email address, password, contact info, emergency contact details and payment information.
