Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. For that reason, we support and comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), and we do not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from children without parental consent. We recognize the importance of safeguarding the privacy of children and encourage parents to check and monitor their children’s use of online activities regularly. We will not condition a child’s participation in an online activity on the child providing more Personally Identifiable Information than is reasonably necessary for participation in such activity. References to “child” or “children” throughout this Policy refer to children under the age of thirteen (13). “Parent” is used to refer to both parents and legal guardians.
Adducent, Inc. currently does not disclose personally Identifiable Information about children to third parties, as defined by COPPA. We may disclose such information to service providers that provide services to us, such as support Site operations and online services and other services.
Collection and Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information about Children
Adducent, Inc. may collect non-personally identifiable information or Aggregate Information from children in the manner described in the section above entitled “Non-Personally Identifiable Information.” Because Aggregate Information does not personally identify any child, we may use and/or disclose such information for any purpose.
COPPA provides that parents of children can: (1) review a description of the specific types of Personally Identifiable Information collected from your child; (2) refuse to allow any further use, maintenance in retrievable form or future collection of Personally Identifiable Information about your child; (3) obtain any Personally Identifiable Information collected from your child; and (4) delete Personally Identifiable Information collected from your child that is contained on the Site. To exercise any of these rights, please contact us via www.Adducent.co.
In some cases, we may permit the parent to exercise some or all of these rights through use of an online dashboard. The dashboard may also allow the parent to choose the type of activity the child can engage in (for example, whether the child will be able to chat on the Sites, or just have access to “canned” chat, which consists of phrases created by Adducent, Inc.) and/or to otherwise restrict the child’s activities on the Sites (for example, the number of hours, or what days, the child can play games on the Sites).
