LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
This website may contain links to other websites. We provide these links solely for your convenience and information. Different websites have different privacy practices. You should always check the privacy notice of the specific site you’re visiting to understand the privacy practices associated with that site. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of third party websites.
Some portions of our website may be directed to children under 13. In these areas of our website, our conduct is governed by federal law and regulations that address children’s online privacy, as well as by the guidelines of the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU), a part of the Council of Better Business Bureaus. If you are under 13, please be sure to read this notice with your parent or legal guardian.
We do not knowingly collect personally-identifiable information from children under 13 on our website, except as permitted by legal requirements and the CARU guidelines. We sometimes offer promotions on our website, such as contests, sweepstakes and games, which children may enter. In those cases, we do not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the promotion as a condition of participation. If we need more than just your child’s first name (or screen name) and e-mail address for your child to participate in a particular online promotion, we will ask your child for your e-mail address so that we can notify you of your child’s request and obtain your permission. When we ask for your permission, we will tell you what we will do with the information that you or your child provides us. In addition, if a child under 13 signs up with us for an email newsletter or other online activity that requires more than one online contact, we also ask the child for your email address so that we can notify you and give you the opportunity to opt your child out of further communications from us. Unless you have explicitly consented, we do not (i) use your child’s personal information for any purpose other than to complete the promotion or (ii) share the information with third parties except as described above in this Privacy Notice. We do not keep your (or your child’s) email address unless you tell us it is okay.
We permit children under the age of 13 to contact us through the website “Contact Us” link with questions or comments. We request only the child’s first name and e-mail address and use that information solely to respond directly to the child on a one-time basis. We do not use the information to recontact the child and we delete the child’s personal information from our database after responding to the child’s inquiry.
Upon proper identification, a parent may review any personal information we have collected from his or her child if we still have the information in our database. The parent also may request that the child’s information be deleted from our database and may refuse to permit further collection or use of the child’s information. If you are a parent and wish to exercise these rights, please contact us as described below.
