POLICY REGARDING CHILDREN
We at FutureVet believe it essential that parents are involved in their children’s online experiences. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) governs information gathering online from or about children under the age of 13. Verifiable consent from a child’s parent or guardian is required before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from a child under the age of 13.
Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, we do not collect information about you or your child when you visit our Site unless you choose to provide information to us. When the Site needs to collect information about a child under 13 years old, COPPA required information and instructions will be provided by the specific Site page that collects information about the child. The Site page will specify exactly what the information will be used for, who will see it, and how long it will be kept.
There are several exceptions that permit collection of a child’s email address without receiving parental consent in advance:
- To provide the parents with notice and to seek consent for communications with the child. Note: this may require collection of the parent’s email address as well.
- To respond to a one time request from a child.
- To respond more than once to a child’s request; i.e., subscription to a newsletter. However, parental consent is required prior to the second communication.
- To protect the safety of a child who is participating on the site; i.e., in a chat room.
- To protect the site or to respond to law enforcement; i.e., in the case the Site is compromised.
Personal information about children under 13 years of age may be needed to respond to his/her communication to us, such as to receive a poster or to acquire information for a school project. Personal information about your child will be destroyed immediately upon completion of its intended purpose. On rare occasions, it may be determined that a communication from a child under 13 years old should be maintained for historical purposes. Should such an occasion occur, FutureVet will obtain the necessary consent from the child’s parent.
Finally, we provide many on-line tools and services in support of FutureVet’s mission. A child under 13 years old may inadvertently provide personal information to one of these services. If this should happen, the information about the child will be deleted immediately upon discovery.
