To assist with our compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act we have established certain notification requirements and safeguards in order to notify parents and provide them with ways to update or remove a child’s information from our records and to communicate with us.

After we receive a parent’s consent, we will utilise the personal information we collect about a child to enable us to offer information about our website, and/or about our products or other items we sell, and/or about any special events, as well as for our internal marketing plans and purposes. Unless the parent, guardian or teacher of a child specifically registers on our website to himself or herself receive information from us, we will not use his or her email address for any reason except to communicate with the parent or guardian in order to notify that parent or guardian about the child’s desire to register on our website and to effect and validate the registration of their child. After we receive the parent’s or guardian’s response to our request for information, we may, at our option, maintain the parent’s information in our internal records, but only to allow us to demonstrate that we have complied with our privacy policy and with applicable laws.

We will not share or sell or intentionally make any child’s personal information we have collected available to anyone outside our company. We will use the information identified above only for internal purposes (subject, however, to the exceptions we have specifically identified in this privacy policy), including sharing the information with our affiliates provided that they have agreed to follow our privacy policy.

After we receive the information, we will send an email to the parent or guardian stating that the child has registered on our website and provide the parent or guardian with the URL.
