If a child under the age of 13 contacts Puffin Post, for example to vote, enter into a contest, subscribe or submit work to be displayed on the site, Puffin Post will collect that child's email address and the email address of the child's parent or guardian. Puffin Post will use the child's email address only for the purpose for which it was collected, and we will use the email address of the parent or guardian only to provide notification about the child's contact with us. We will also provide information on how the parent or guardian can review and request deletion of the child's personal information, and how to prevent further collection and use of personal information concerning the child. If you wish to contact us regarding the reviewing and deletion of your child's details, or have any questions/comments about privacy, contact us and we will be happy to help you. You will be asked to specify the username and password of the child concerned and you will need to provide your own email address, for verification and contact purposes only..
No personal information collected from children under 13 will be sold, rented or otherwise disclosed to any company outside the Puffin Post group, except for disclosure to companies acting as our agents to help us to provide services requested by the child.
Children under 13 are permitted to vote and take part in contests. However, if a child under 13 wins a competition, notification of this will be sent to the parent or guardian's email address, which must be provided by the child when they enter the contest. We will not under any circumstance ask the child for any personal information beyond email addresses without obtaining the written consent of a parent or guardian.
