Preventing Access to Your Personal Data
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Privacy for Children
Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13. Any web site services soliciting participation by minor children older than 13 years will require permission from a parent or guardian, will be moderated by our organization, and anonymized to remove any identifying information from the view of other participants.
If you have other questions or concerns about our privacy policies, please call us at 800-644-2666, TTY at 800-804-1616 or send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
