Any information collected by any City site from children under 13 is subject to the same guidelines as the general City Privacy and Use Statement. In addition, the following guidelines will be followed for any information collected by or for any child under 13:
Information that could be collected from or for a minor includes but might not be limited to name, address, telephone number, email address, school, and hobbies.
Parental (including legal guardian) Consent
Parental consent will be obtained before collecting, using or disclosing personal information about a child.
If any information practices change in a "material" way, new consent will be obtained from the parents. This includes changes in the kinds of material being collected, a change in how that information is being used, or if there is a change in the third parties that have access to that information.
Parents will be able to review the personal information collected from their children. This will require verification of the identity of the requesting parent. See Procedure for Review and Correction of Personally Identifiable Information for specifics.
Parents will be allowed to revoke their consent and delete information collected from or for their children on request. When consent is revoked, the website will stop collecting, using or disclosing information from or for that child. Revocation may end a child's participation in an activity if the information collected was necessary for participation on the website.
