The Information We Collect From Children, and How We Use It
How We Will Verify Parental Consent; How We Will Communicate with Parents
In any instance where we determine that we collected information from a child, we will verify parental consent via email address or other means before we collect any personal information from the child, as further described below. If you believe your child is participating in an activity that collects personal information and you as the parent have not received an email providing notice or seeking your consent, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]. We will not use parent emails provided for parental consent purposes to market to the parent, unless the parent has expressly opted in to email marketing or has separately participated in an activity with us that allows for such email contact.
Regular Consent: In the event we knowingly (or reasonably suspect) collect personal information from a child in conjunction with activities on our Website, we will first seek a parent’s consent by email. In the email we will explain what information we are collecting, how we plan to use it, how the parent can provide consent, and how the parent can revoke consent. If we do not receive parental consent within a reasonable time, we will delete the parent contact information and any other information collected from the child in connection with original request/activity. After providing parental consent, a parent may at anytime rescind such consent by contacting us at [email protected] and we will use best efforts to promptly respond to such rescission.
Higher-Level, Verifiable Consent. In the event that we collect personal information from a child that will be posted publicly, we will seek a higher level of verifiable consent than email consent. Such “higher-level” methods of consent include but are not limited to asking for a credit card or other payment method for verification (with a nominal charge involved) or requiring a signed consent form by mail, email attachment, or fax. After providing higher-level consent, a parent may at anytime rescind such consent by contacting us at [email protected] and we will use best efforts to promptly respond to such request.
Non-Personal Information We Collect by Automated Means And How We Use It:
The summary of third-party operators who collect non-personal information on our Website or via our Platform may be found HERE.
If you have questions about these third-party operators, please contact us at [email protected].
When Information Collected From Children Is Shared
In addition to those instances where a child’s personal information is posted publicly (after receiving higher-level parental consent as further discussed herein), we also may share or disclose personal information collected from children in a limited number of instances, as summarized HERE.
Parental Choices and Controls
At any time, parents can request to review the personal information that we have collected from their children. Parents can also request that we stop collecting further personal information from their children in association with their involvement in a particular campaign, and can request that we delete from our records the personal information we have collected in connection with such campaign or in conjunction with their other online activities on our Platform or Website. Additionally, parents can also request that we do not share the personal information we collect from their children with third parties unless it is necessary to provide the services or to fulfill a request. If you are a parent and you want to make any of the aforementioned requests, please email us at [email protected], and we will use best efforts to promptly respond to such requests. Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to an inability for a child to participate in a campaign.
