Protecting personal data of children
In direct communication with children over the Internet, we see unique problems that represent the protection of their privacy. Our web pages that could attract children and eventually collect personal information of children under the age of 14 are designed to protect children’s rights and privacy in the best possible way. In accordance with this intention and our effort:
we DO NOT collect, we DO NOT use and DO NOT disclose the information that could be used to contact children on the Internet. Such contact information over the Internet is used without the consent of a parent or legal representative solely for immediate replying to a child’s request and shall not be used for any other purpose;
we DO NOT collect personal contact information outside the Internet;
we DO NOT share personal data with any third party, without the prior consent of the parent or legal representative;
we DO NOT allow children to publicly disclose or otherwise distribute personal information or other materials that they send to us by contacting them without the permission of their parent or legal representative.
Personal information of the child and parent is deleted from our database if the parent requests it from us.
As a parent or legal representative you always have the right to request access to all personal information about your child that we have received on one of our sites, you may request the deletion of the data (if these data are still existing in our databases), and/or prohibit our future collection and use of the information about your child. If you are a parent and legal representative and you want to exercise this right, please let us know.
In addition to this, the collection manager guarantees the protection of personal information provided by special laws regulating this issue.
You can request at any time an overview of all personal information we have received from you on one of our online addresses. We may update, correct or delete this information on your request (if the data in question is still in our databases) or stop using this information in the future. If you want to realize this right, just contact us.
We do everything in our power to ensure that all links from our web site direct you and/or your child to web sites that contain quality content and which do not stimulate negativity. However, web sites and addresses are changing at a very fast pace on the web and we cannot always guarantee for the content of any web site we link you to.
