The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act («COPPA») requires that we inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information from children under 13 years of age and that we obtain the consent of parents and guardians in order for children under 13 years to use certain features of our website or Apps. Below we explain how we comply with the COPPA. Please note, that when we use the term «parent» or “you” below, we also mean legal guardians.
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. If you believe we have mistakenly collected such information, please contact us so we can resolve the issue.
We may collect parent’s e-mail address in order to subscribe parents to our news that does not otherwise collect, use, or disclose children’s personal information. We generally will not use or disclose the e-mail address that we collect except to send the initial notices and subsequent updates about HEY CLAY.
