Policies for Children
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. Subject to the requirements of this section, we may collect the email address or IP address of a child between 13 and 18 years old in order for that child to register an account on our Website. We do allow children to post craft ideas and projects to our public areas and we may not be able to determine the age of any users of our Website, both of which may result in the unintentional disclosure of personal information to the public. We do not use any personal information collected from any children for any purpose except for internal marketing and promotional purposes, and do not share the information we collect with any third parties. We will take measures to remove any unintentionally disclosed personal information from our Website as soon as practicable. Children under 13 years old shall not be allowed to enter any contests. If a child between 13 and 18 years old enters a contest, we may also collect additional information, such as a home address, in order to deliver the prize.
We respect the rights of privacy for parents and children and are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA).
