Children may be able to register with the Services to use our software, online applications, view content, participate in contests, receive emails, and engage in other activities. By doing so we may collect information from children. When we collect Personal Information from a child, we will hold that information only as long as reasonably necessary to allow the child to continue to use and interact with the Services.
During the registration process we may ask a child to give us information for security purposes, announcements, and notifications. This information includes a child’s name, birthdate (to validate the child’s age), gender, username, account name, password, and parent or legal guardian’s email address and other contact information. Children can choose whether to provide their information to us; provided, however, that some of our Services may not function without the required information. We strongly advise children and any user never to provide any Personal Information in their usernames.
To comply with COPPA requirements, on the Services where we ask for the age of a user who is under the age of 13 we will ask for their parent or legal guardian’s email address before we collect any Personal Information from a child. If you think that your child is involved in an activity that collects Personal Information and you or another parent or legal guardian has not received a request for consent to collect such information, please contact us using the contact information at the bottom of this page.
