OUR POLICY TOWARDS CHILDREN
Our services are not directed to children under 13, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13. [If we learn that we have collected Personal Information of a child under 13, we will delete such information.]
When Thatsnotcool.com does request age information, and users identify themselves as under 13, we will either block such users from providing personal information, or we will ensure consent is obtained from parents for the collection, use and sharing of their children’s personal information. At that time, we will provide a description of the information that the child may make publically available, how we will use the information and other practices. We will not knowingly ask children under the age of 13 to provide more information than is reasonably necessary to provide our services.
Please note that if you grant consent for your child to use Thatsnotcool.com, this may include such general audience communication services as email, instant messaging, and online groups, and your child will be able to communicate with, and disclose personal information to, other users of all ages. Parents can review, edit, request the deletion, or prevent further collection or use of their children’s personal information or make inquiries regarding this policy by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, writing to Futures Without Violence at 100 Montgomery Street, The Presidio, San Francisco, CA 94129 or calling (415) 678-5500.
If we change this privacy statement in a way that expands the collection, use or disclosure of children’s personal information to which a parent has previously consented, the parent will be notified and we will be required to obtain the parent’s additional consent.
Under no circumstances do we condition a child’s participation in an activity—like contests—on the child’s disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. On certain sites, we may not permit children to participate at all regardless of consent.
