I see content about me or someone else. How can I have it removed?
We know it can be surprising to see an image of a child you’re the legal guardian of or even yourself if you weren’t expecting it.
- Pineaptitude does not recommend that instructors post photos or certain personal information about minors on our service, but we ultimately cannot control what each of our users post on a day to day basis.
- Please keep in mind if the face of the person is obscured or not visible and no identifying names or labels are provided, it likely will be difficult to identify the specific individual in question.
However, if you find a photo or other personal information of yourself or someone you are the legal guardian of and would like to removed, please contact the teacher or instructor that uses our service to request the content be removed.

- We encourage you to be polite and respectful in your request, especially if it is the first time this has occurred, as the content may have been posted by accident or without realizing your preferences.
- Not only is this likely to get results faster, it is also a good way to check in with that instructor and let them know that you prefer that information not to be posted online for future reference.
- If you have repeatedly requested content not be posted of a minor and it has continued to be posted, you may want to contact or CC an administrator on your next email request. Again, we encourage you to be polite but firm in these requests.
- You may also want to double check that, if applicable, you have filled the appropriate paperwork with the minor’s school or educational institution to revoke your permission to use your minor’s image or other information online. Many school districts and institutions assume that you grant this permission by default unless they hear otherwise from you.
- Please note that, depending on local laws, students in college or who have otherwise attained the age of majority may need to make the request themselves. In other words, if you are the parent or guardian of a student over the age of majority, your request might not be accepted by the school or institution, though, again, this depends on local laws and policies.
