Does The Party Animal Inc. collect personal information from children under 13?
Collection and Use of Personal Information
At this time, we collect and store personal information about children under 13 if it is submitted by way of registration and is submitted after we've obtained verifiable parental consent. To determine who is younger than 13 years old and whether parental consent is required, we ask all users of our email support page to submit their age (i.e., date of birth). If given verifiable permission from a parent, The Party Animal Inc. may collect and store the following types of personal information about a child under 13: first and last name, street address, email address, and telephone number. The Party Animal Inc. may also collect demographic information about a child such as the country and state in which the child lives, the child's date of birth, and a description of the hardware (e.g., web browser); and, combine such information with the child's personal information. The Party Animal Inc. will only collect this information if the child voluntarily submits it to us after having received prior parental consent to collect such information. We do not collect personal information about a child through the use of passive collection mechanisms such as cookies. The information collected from a child is used by The Party Animal Inc. for purposes of participation in the website community, and/or promotional participation in sweepstakes and contests. It may also be used to diagnose a child's specific technical problem and to provide an acceptable solution. In this case, the information may be stored for purposes of providing ongoing technical support. From time to time, we may also receive requests relating to Frequently Asked Question documents (FAQ's), and we may use the child's contact information to respond to such requests. Any requests or technical problems regarding the games should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Under no circumstances will we ask the child to provide us more personal information than is reasonably necessary for the child to receive technical support help.
The Party Animal Inc. does not share, rent or sell personal information about children under 13 to third parties. However, this policy does not apply when disclosure is required to provide information to law enforcement agencies or investigations on matters related to public safety, to take precautions against liability, to respond to judicial process, or to protect the security or integrity of our website(s). In addition, information about our customers may be shared with our vendors who perform services on our behalf; however, we require them by written agreement to keep all information confidential and not to use the information for any reasons other than the performance of services for us.
