Information Collection and Use
Children’s Personal Data
COPPA requires that online service providers obtain parental consent before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13 years of age. Moreover, the GDPR requires that data controllers obtain consent from the holders of parental responsibility over children who are under 16 years of age before such controllers knowingly collect and process Personal Data from such children. Under the CCPA, the Consumer (between 13 and 16 years of age) must affirmatively authorize the sale of their Personal Data. If the child is under the age of 13 years old, a parent or guardian must affirmatively authorize the sale of the child’s Personal Data.
We do not knowingly collect Personal Data from anyone under the age of 16. Our services do not require the creation of accounts or allow users to interact with one another.
If you are a child under 16 years of age, you may not disclose any Personal Data to us before we obtain consent from your parent or guardian.
If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we become aware that we have received Personal Data from children under 16 years of age without verification of parental consent, we will take steps to remove that information.
