Children's Guidelines

  • We care about children and understand that they have special privacy needs. Therefore, we have adopted the following privacy policy regarding children:
  • We will NOT collect, use, or distribute to third parties personally identifiable information.
  • We will NOT give the child access to unmonitored chat rooms, message boards, email accounts, or other services that would give the child the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information. The ONLY exception to this will be with a signed release from the parent(s) and/or guardian(s). Releases will be kept on file until the child reaches the age of 14 or until the parent(s)/guardian(s) request removal.
  • When verifiable parental consent is not obtained, we will only use the online contact information (such as email) to:
    • Respond directly to the child's request on a one-time basis and not use that information to re-contact the child for other purposes.
    • Request the name or online contact information of a parent for the purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing parental notification.
    • Respond more than once directly to a specific request from a child (such as in the case where a child requests a newsletter subscription) and not used to re-contact the child for other purposes. We will use our best efforts to provide parental notification, which will include the nature and intended use as well as an opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information and participation in the activity.
  • We will NOT entice the child to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any activity, game, or service.
  • We will provide the parent(s) and/or guardian(s) a description of the specific types of a personally identifiable information collected from their child upon request. We will allow the parent to refuse further use or future online collection of personally identifiable information and provide a way for a parent to obtain any personally identifiable information collected from their child.
  • We will provide notice to children in age appropriate terms of what personally identifiable information is to be collected.
  • We will NOT provide any links to Web sites that are unsuitable for children.
  • We will encourage children to get their parent(s) and/or guardian(s) permission before sharing personal information online.
  • Upon request we will attempt to refuse service and or connection to our site(s) to the best of our ability without causing harm or denying service to others.
