(Effective Date: June 20, 2017)
If you are a parent or legal guardian of a young child (i.e., a child under the age of 13), we urge you to supervise and participate in your child’s use of this Website. From time to time this Website may offer certain activities, features or events where user registration is needed to participate. To protect the online privacy of children under the age of 13, we may require parents/legal guardians to register in order for their kids to participate in such activities, events, or features, or we may require prior verifiable parental consent before giving children access to such features in compliance with COPPA. Alternatively, in accordance with COPPA’s one-time-use exception, we may allow anyone to participate in certain activities by providing only an email address and a first name (if allowable) and we will use that information to contact the user once only in connection with his/her participation in the applicable activity, feature or event, and will thereafter delete the information from our database.
If we were to collect and store personal information from children for ongoing use, we would give parents the ability to review such data or request that we delete or stop collecting or using such data. When applicable, parents can use the contact information provided at the bottom of this policy to make such requests.
Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (known as the "shine the light" law), California residents have a right to request an information-sharing disclosure from a business to which they have provided personal information and which has disclosed the information to any third party for third-party direct marketing uses in the prior calendar year.
We do not knowingly share your personal information with third parties for direct marketing uses, except with your opt-in consent. To make a request for information-sharing disclosure under this law, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that, under this law, we are not required to respond to your request more than once in a calendar year, nor are we required to respond to any requests that are not sent to the above-designated email address.
Please note that we do not share personal information collected from children with independent third parties for marketing purposes.

However, you understand and acknowledge that we are not liable for any breach of security resulting from causes or events that are beyond our control, including, without limitation, your own act or omission, corruption of storage media, defects in third-party data security products or services, power failures, natural phenomena, riots, acts of vandalism, hacking, sabotage, or terrorism.
