PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
As Kidsmomo is aimed primarily at kids under the age of 13, we are vigilant in guarding the safety of our site users and complying with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
For those activities that require personally identifiable information, such as contests and sweepstakes, in compliance with the Federal Trade Commission’s Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, Kidsmomo will not condition a child’s participation in an activity on that child disclosing more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to administer the activity. Kidsmomo will not request personally identifiable information from any child, unless we collect only the child’s name and online contact information to: (1) obtain parental consent or provide parents with notice; (2) respond directly on a one-time basis to a child’s specific request; (3) respond more than once to a child’s specific request along with providing parental notice of such use; (4) protect the safety of a child; or (5) comply with legal requirements. When we provide parents with notice and/or seek consent, we also give parents the ability to let us know if they do not want any further use made of the personally identifiable information we have collected from their child.
Unless we indicate otherwise and obtain prior parental consent, personally identifiable information collected from children under the age of 13 in connection to sweepstakes and contest administration will be used solely by Kidsmomo for internal purposes and will not be sold or otherwise transferred to third parties. Any personally identifiable information collected from children under the age of 13 via comments or book review submissions will be completely deleted from our servers. We consider the following, among other things, to be personally identifiable information: full name (first and last), email address, street address, and phone number. It is Kidmomo’s policy never to reveal on its site more than a child’s first name, first initial of last name, state, and age or grade.
Information collected from our site users will never be sold or otherwise transferred to third parties unless to protect the safety of a child.
Kidsmomo is dedicated to providing a safe, age-appropriate environment for kids ages 8-13. We review all user-submitted content before it is posted publicly to our site. Any personally identifiable information is completely deleted from our servers, and any inappropriate language is removed.
