We encourage parents or guardians to monitor their children’s online activities. Please help us protect your children’s privacy by instructing them never to provide personal information (like their full name, e-mail address, home address, telephone number, etc.) without your permission.
All or some of this website may be directed to children under 13, so our conduct may be governed by applicable law and regulations that address children’s online privacy, as well as by the guidelines of the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU), a part of the Council of Better Business Bureaus. Our practices in connection with the collection of information on our website are guided by these laws and guidelines.
This section notifies parents of:
We do not knowingly collect personal information (like full name, e-mail address, phone number or address) from children under 13 without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, except in limited circumstances authorized by law. For example, as described elsewhere in this Privacy Notice, we do automatically collect some information, like (1) your child’s IP address, (2) the type of web browser and operating system being used, and other information regarding your child’s system (e.g., screen resolution), (3) the pages of the site your child visits, (4) other websites your child visited before visiting our site, and (5) your child’s general geographic location, and we use cookie technology, web beacons, and similar devices to provide functionality and support to our internal operations. Unless you have explicitly consented, we are authorized by law, or we believe it is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of our company, our customers or others, we do not (i) use your child’s personal information for any purpose other than as set forth under this section, or (ii) share, disclose, sell, rent, or otherwise transfer your child’s personal information in identifiable form, except to third parties who provide support for the internal operations of this site and who are bound by contractual or other obligations to use the information only for such purpose and to keep the information confidential.
We may use the personal information we collect from your child to:
We may from time to time offer promotions and activities, such as contests, sweepstakes, raffles and games, on our website. We only collect as much information about children as is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in such activities, and we do not condition a child’s participation in activities on our website on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary. In order to permit your child to participate in certain promotions or activities directed to children, we may first ask your child to submit your name and e-mail address so we can notify you of your child’s request and get your permission to proceed. When we ask for your permission, we will tell you what we will do with the information you or your child provides us, how you can review your child’s information, and how you can revoke your consent and ask us to delete the information. If you provide your consent, we may collect other personal information from your child and use that information to allow the child to participate (for example, select a winner of the promotion and, if the child wins, we will contact the parent (not the child) for further information needed for any prize delivery). If you do not provide your consent, the information will be deleted from our records within a reasonable time after the information is collected.
We also permit children under the age of 13 to contact us through the website’s “Contact Us” link with questions or comments. We request only the child’s first name and e-mail address and use that information solely to respond directly to a specific request from the child on a one-time basis. We do not use the information to re-contact the child and we delete the child’s personal information from our database after responding to the child’s inquiry.
Except in limited circumstances, our website does not permit children to make their personal information publicly available. Some activities, such as when a child submits artwork, recipes, designs, or other content to our website or participates in certain contests, may permit children to make their personal information publicly available. We will obtain consent from a child’s parent before allowing such information to be publicly available. For activities that involve public posting, we encourage children not to use their full names or screen names. Instead, we recommend choosing an alias or using a first name, nickname, or initials.
We retain personal information collected from children for only as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the information was collected.
Upon proper identification, you may review any personal information we have collected from your child if we still have the information in our database. You may also request that your child’s information be deleted from our database and you may refuse to permit further collection, use and/or disclosure of the child’s information. If you are a parent or a guardian of a child under 13 and wish to exercise these rights, please contact us at https://www.postconsumerbrands.com/privacyinquiries.
If we learn that we have collected information from a child under the age of 13 in a manner that is inconsistent with applicable law, we will either delete the information or contact the child’s parent/guardian to seek consent as required under such law. No other operators may collect or maintain personal information from children through our website.
