Frequently Asked Questions

What is GeoWhiz?

GeoWhiz™ is a “Metaverse” (virtual world) platform that connects with people the way they connect with media. It’s a “kid-safe” and “family-friendly” environment that combines games, interactive media, and practical information. We help people connect with destinations as they plan, enjoy, and look back on great family travel experiences.

What are the recommended ages for GeoWhiz?

GeoWhiz is designed for Moms and for kids between the ages of 6 to 13. Of course, people of all ages will find useful content and fun activities. Content for “Moms-only” is noted.

How do you keep kids safe?

You can be sure your kids are safe when exploring and playing on our platform. We never collect personally identifiable information from kids. Our platform is designed with security measures in all areas of content and functionality. GeoWhiz is fully compliant with the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act.

What does GeoWhiz do with the information they collect when I register?

When a kid younger than 13 registers on the platform, we ask for the parent’s or guardian’s email address to let them know of the registration. We don’t use email addresses or other information for any other purposes beyond compliance and we don’t share your personal information. We will never sell or rent your information to a third party without your permission. 

 

For more details, you and your parents can visit our privacy policy page. If you decide to no longer be part of the platform, just ask us to delete your email address. You can contact us at information@geowhiz.com. If you’re feeling “old school,” you can write to GeoWhiz Universe LLC, 15660 North Dallas Parkway, Suite 1100, Dallas, TX, 75248.
