Your Child can surf Youthfan.com, view content, and play many games without any Personal Information being collected. We do not collect Personal Information from your Child unless he or she registers on the Website. Typically, your Child will register in order to post content on the Website. The only information we collect from your Child during our registration process is their first name, their Parent's e-mail address, their birth date, member name, and password (“Child’s Personal Information”). We collect birth dates to validate the ages of our guests. We do not collect any other personally identifiable information from your Child during our registration process. We will collect your Child’s e-mail address from you for the purpose of sending your Child e-mail related to youth sports related news and events. For example, we would send a YouthFan newsletter to your Child directly at your request. Note that all websites that are directed to Children are prohibited by law from conditioning a Child’s participation in an online activity on the Child providing more personal information than is reasonably necessary.
If your Child registers for an account, we use your e mail address to notify you of your Child’s registration request. To personalize communications to your Child regarding a specific product, we may use your Child’s first name combined with your last name and a mailing address provided by you when signing up for that specific product. We may collect your Child's e-mail address from you in order to send your Child a newsletter. In addition, your Child’s Personal Information may be collected and used to enable your Child’s participation in certain interactive features such as instant message chatting, sending e-mail, posting on message boards and other similar activities. These activities may involve disclosure of your Child’s Personal Information to third parties. In addition, we may share your Child’s Personal Information with third parties to the extent reasonably necessary to: protect the security of integrity of our sites; to take precautions against liability; to respond to judicial process; or to the extent permitted under provisions of law, to provide information to law enforcement agencies or for an investigation related to public safety.
We send you an e-mail when your Child registers and we provide you 48 hours to refuse your Child's registration. If you refuse to allow your Child’s registration, we will delete your Child's Personal Information from our database. If we don't hear back from you, we will assume that it is acceptable for your Child to be registered. Once you permit your Child to register, your Child will be able to youthfan.com products without any further notification to you.
We collect your Child’s Personal Information when he or she participates in activities such as one to one instant message chatting. Before allowing your Child to use these features, we send an e-mail to you requesting your affirmative consent to your Child’s participation. If you respond by e-mail and give such consent, we then follow that communication with an e-mail confirmation to you and will allow your Child to participate in the activity.
Before allowing your Child to use a feature of our Website that might result in the public disclosure of your Child's Personal Information to third parties on the Internet, such as posting on open message boards, we require a high level of verification to confirm that you have given permission for your Child to participate in such features. For example, we may require you to provide us credit card information, speak to a trained telephone operator or return by postal mail or fax a signed consent form. Additionally, Access to the Site or the Services for users under the age of 13 must register and submit parental or legal guardian consent through our third-party child register, Privo, Inc. at https://privo.com/.
You can, at any time, refuse to permit us to collect any additional Personal Information from your Child and request that we delete your Child’s Personal Information from your records.
You can access, change, or delete your Child’s Personal Information by logging on to your Child’s account. You will need to have your Child's member name and password. There are instructions on the login page explaining how to recover a password if your Child has forgotten it.
You can contact us to access, change, or delete your Child’s Personal Information by sending an e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your Child's member name and your e-mail address in the e-mail so that we can better assist you with your inquiry or request.
Security: We use reasonable security precautions to protect the security and integrity of your Child’s Personal Information in accordance with this policy and applicable law. However, no Internet transmission is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that security breaches will not occur. Without limitation of the foregoing, we are not responsible for the actions of hackers and other unauthorized third parties that breach our reasonable security procedures.
