Protection of children's privacy
As a parent or guardian, you have control over the personal information companies collect online from your kids under 13. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act(COPPA), passed by the U.S. Congress in 1998, gives you tools to do that.
COPPA puts you in charge of your child’s personal information. The Rule also applies to a general audience site that knows it’s collecting personal information from kids of that age.
In compliance with COPPA, we notify parents directly and get their approval before we collect, use, or disclose a child’s personal information.
A similar clause under Article 8, GDPR passed by the EU states that processing of personal data of a child below 16 years is subject to parental consent.
If any information is furnished by a child ranging between the ages of 13 and 16 as the case may be, please write to us to retrieve the information.
We will not use your personal information for purposes other than those purposes we have disclosed to you, without your permission. From time to time, we may request your permission to allow us to share your personal information with third parties.
You may choose not to have your personal information shared with third parties where we rely on consent as the lawful basis for processing your personal information. You may also choose not to allow us to use your personal information for any purpose that is incompatible with the purposes for which we originally collected it or subsequently obtained your authorization.
If you choose to limit the use of your personal information, we may not be able to continue to offer you our services.
In case of any complaint with regard to any perceived misuse of personal information, a subscriber can write to us or use the Contact Form.
