Information Storage and Safety
Accessing Your Information
Submitting personal information through any form on this Website does not automatically create a user account at this time, meaning you cannot access information you have submitted directly to us through this Website. If you would like at any time to review or update your information or remove your information from our database, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Collecting Information from Minors
Because our Website and its Services are aimed primarily at youth aged 11 through 18, we strongly encourage parents/guardians to oversee any and all use of the Internet, including this Website, by their child.
When we intend to collect and use personal information from minors, we take the following steps to protect children’s privacy, including:
- Notifying parents/guardians about our information practices with regard to children, including the types of personal information we may collect from children, the uses to which we may put that information, and whether and with whom we share that information;
- Obtaining consent from parents/guardians for the collection of personal information from their children, for the use of personal information from their children, and/or for sending information about our Services directly to their children.
- Limiting our collection of personal information from children to no more than is reasonably necessary to participate in our Services; and
- Giving parents/guardians the ability to request access to personal information we have collected from their children and the ability to request that the personal information be reviewed, updated, or deleted.
We will update this policy as necessary to stay compliant with relevant laws.
If you have any questions or comments about this policy, you may contact us by email at email@example.com, by phone at (404) 522-4270, or by mail at 133 Luckie Street NW, 2nd Floor, Atlanta, Georgia 30303.
