Notice of Information Collection Practices
kids, how it is collected, how to review and change or delete that information, and who is collecting and keeping it.
How to Contact Us
The kids-online.net web site is operated by Mike Barnard. I collect minimal personal information from our kid users
which is necessary to participate in certain areas of the web site. If you have any questions or wish to contact me,
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Information We Collect and How We Collect It
As required by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"), Kids Online will never require you to give
more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in any online activity. You can enjoy the Kids Online
web site by playing games, reading stories, and surfing our site without providing any personally identifiable
information ("PII"). We may ask for your nickname or gender, but these are not considered PII because they do not
specifically identify you.
However, if you want to participate in some other features, as many kids do, such as chatting, posting on message
boards, free email, creating web pages or other areas needing parental permission, we ask you to register and provide
us with the following PII: your parent's email address, and your email address. Some areas of the site may also ask
for your age and/or first name but this information is not required. Any additional information other than this is
not needed nor is it suggested that you use it or display it while using any of our services.
The Kids Online email service is actually handled by www.zzn.com and NOT by Kids Online. We have NO control over
this service and anyone using it or wanting to sign up should visit their web site to learn about their policy and
requirements for use. We can NOT be responsible for anything concerning this service as we have no control over it.
The method of data collection described, in which we ask you to provide information to us, is the only way in which
we collect PII from you. Kids Online does not use "cookies," other than a temporary session cookie as required by COPPA
regulations for use during the Kids Club signup process. If you decide to save your page in the Kids Online Library a
cookie will be used to store that information also. We do not support the use of advertisements. Email addresses
and/or any of your personal information is NOT sold or given to any 3rd parties. We only use the information for
access and use of our web site.
Why We Collect Information
We ask for your parent's email address so that we can contact them and ask them to send in their parental consent
forms, which will allow you to participate in our interactive features. Your email address is required in order to
hold users accountable for their actions (for example in our chat rooms) without compromising their physical location.
We use non-personal information (age, sex and state or country) that you provide to us to customize our site and
help us to provide better content to you. Kids-online.net will NEVER share, sell or otherwise distribute your PII
without your parent's permission.
How to View/Change Your Child's Information or Cancel His or Her Account
COPPA requires that parents be allowed to review their child's PII, have it deleted and refuse to allow further
collection or use of that information. If you wish to review, change, or delete your child's information, or cancel
your child's account, please email me at email@example.com and indicate your child's nickname and email address.
