We do not ask children to disclose any more information than is reasonably necessary to enable them to participate in an activity on our website [AND to improve the website].
We do not generally disclose personal information we have collected from children through this website to third parties. We may do so sometimes, in which case we will say so when the information is collected and you or your child will be able to inform us that you do not want us to do this. This will not stop your child enjoying the site; you or your child can simply tell us that you are happy for us to have the information so your child can take part in the activities we offer, but that you do not want us to pass that information on.
When children want to participate in activities on our website, this is the sort of information we ask for and how we use it:
When you enter competitions, we ask you for your name, email and residential address. If you win, we can let you know if you have won anything, send you your prize and let other people (such as other users of our website, the public and our own employees) know about our competitions and their winners.
When children send ecards, we will ask them for their names and email addresses. This is so we can let whoever receives the postcard know who sent it and so we can make sure the child who sent it gets a copy (by email) too.
When children send in reviews of our books or jokes/poems/stories, we will ask them for their names and email addresses. This is so that, if we want to post their reviews on our website, we can give them credit for what they have written.
When a child signs up to a newsletter option we will variously ask for their names, email addresses, postal addresses depending on the newsletter.
We only keep the personal information children submit for these purposes until we have made use of it in these ways.
We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the activities offered on this site. If your child is younger than 13, we ask you to play an active role in safeguarding his or her privacy when using our site.
We make it a condition of using this site that no information is submitted to or posted at the site by children under 13 unless we have the consent of their parent or guardian. When your child registers to use the site [OR whenever your child takes part in an offer or activity on the site where we ask him or her for personal information] we will ask for your consent.
If you have children who are under 13, we ask you to complete their entry forms for competitions/prize draws/ecards/reviews etc. run on this site. We will notify you if your child wins a competition/prize draw and send any prize to you. We will also obtain your prior consent before publishing the name, age and photograph of your child if he or she wins a competition.
If your child is older than 13, we will ask him or her to give consent personally if we plan to keep or use his or her information for anything (we will also say what we plan to do with it). Please help your children with this.
