HOW WE PROTECT CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13
A. What types of information do we collect from children?
We mainly collect persistent identifier (such as an IP address, mobile device id, or a unique device identifier) from the child. We may also collect the email address of the child. Please note that all sites that are directed to children under the age of 13 are prohibited by COPPA from conditioning a child's participation in an online activity on the child's disclosure of more Personally Identifiable Information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity.
B. How do we use and share the Personally Identifiable Information collected from children?
We use the collected persistent identifier for the sole purpose of providing support for internal operations of the Service, including activities necessary for us to maintain or analyze the functioning of the Services, authenticate users or personalize content, serve contextual advertising or cap the frequency of advertising, protect the security or integrity of the user or the Service, or ensure legal or regulatory compliance. The collected persistent identifier is not shared with other third parties. However, we may, from time to time contract with certain third party service providers to provide support for the internal operations of the Service. Your Personally Identifiable Information is not used or disclosed by these contracted third party service providers except for the limited service for which they have been contracted. We collect a child's email address in connection with a question emailed to us by the child for the sole purpose of communicating with the child on a one-time-only basis (e.g. responding to a question from the child). We will not use or disclose such information to re-contact the child or for any other purpose, and such information will be deleted from our records promptly after responding to the child's request. If we choose not to respond to the child's request, we will immediately delete the child's information.
C. How can parents review or delete Personally Identifiable Information about their child?
At any time, parents of children under the age of 13 may review or delete Personally Identifiable Information about their children from our records, or refuse to permit our further collection or use of such Personally Identifiable Information. Please contact us at email@example.com if you would like to review or delete your child's Personally Identifiable Information, or to inform us about your refusal to permit our further collection of such Personally Identifiable Information. Whenever a parent requests a deletion of his or her child's Personally Identifiable Information, we will use reasonable efforts to delete the child's information from our records as much as possible and will not collect any other Personally Identifiable Information from such child. Please note that there may be residual information that will remain in our records that may or may not contain the Personally Identifiable Information that was requested to be deleted. Such residual information will not be disclosed or shared with any other third party or used for any commercial purpose.
