‘Personal Data’ means any information that may be used to identify an individual, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier, including not limited to, a first and last name, physical address, email address, online identifier or other contact information and/or identity proof documents.
If your child is located in the United States of America, we handle their Personal Data in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). COPPA applies to child users who are under the age of 13.
COPPA requires that we receive verifiable parental consent from the child’s parent or legal guardian before the collection, use, or disclosure of the child’s Personal Data. To learn more about how we receive this parental consent, what personal data we collect from children, how we use this data, including when we disclose it, go to COPPA Direct Notice to Parents. We display this notice to all parents and guardians when soliciting and obtaining verifiable parental consent.
If you are a parent or guardian and you believe that your child has provided us with Personal Data without your consent, please contact us as at firstname.lastname@example.org We will dispose of that data in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
Parents can always refuse to permit us to collect further Personal Data, request to review their child’s Personal Data, or request that we delete from our records the personal data collected from or about their child. Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to a termination of an account, membership, or other service, as the nature of our services requires collection of Personal Data. To exercise any of these options, please contact us at email@example.com Please be aware that to protect children’s privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify a parent or legal guardian’s identity before granting access to any personal data.
