Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
This children’s privacy statement explains our practices with respect to the online collection and use of personal information from children under the age of thirteen for non-European Union (EU) users and under the age of sixteen for EU users, and provides important information regarding their rights under federal law with respect to such information.
This site is not directed to children under the age of thirteen for non-EU users, nor to children under the age of sixteen for EU users, and we do NOT knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the said age limits as part of the site. We screen users who wish to provide personal information in order to prevent users under the age of thirteen and sixteen respectively from providing such information. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personally identifiable information from an underage user as part of the Site, we will delete such information from our records. If we change our practices in the future, we will obtain prior, verifiable parental consent before collecting any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen for non-EU users or sixteen for EU users as part of the site.
Because we do not collect any personally identifiable information from underage children as part of the site, we also do NOT knowingly distribute such information to third parties.
We do NOT knowingly allow children under the age of thirteen for non-EU users or sixteen for EU users to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information through the site.
Because we do not collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen for non-EU users or under the age of sixteen for EU users as part of the site, we do NOT condition the participation of such children in the site’s online activities on providing personally identifiable information.
