If we do not receive their parent’s consent within a reasonable time, we will delete the child’s personal information.A parent can consent to our collection and use of their child’s information, but not consent to its disclosure to third parties. In that case we may not be able to provide the information, products or services the child has requested.The circumstances in which we may collect and use a child’s personal information without their parent’s consent include to respond to one-time requests from the child, or to provide the child with regular information (eg a newsletter) which they subscribe for. However, in the latter case we will ask the child to provide us with their parent’s email address so that we can notify the parent and give him or her the option of preventing further use of the child’s information.
Parents can review their child’s personal information that we collect, and can ask to have it deleted or refuse to allow any further collection or use of their child’s information, by contacting us directly.
