- We do not collect children's contact information without prior parental consent, which will include an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity. Without prior parental consent, online information will only be used to respond directly to the child's request and for no other purpose.
- We do not collect children's personally identifiable offline contact information without prior parental consent.
- We do not distribute children's personal information to any third party without prior parental consent.
- We do not provide the ability to publicly post or otherwise transmit information that could be used to identify a child without prior parental consent.
