Kids’ Privacy Policy

Kids’ Privacy Policy

Updated: 22/11/2012


Joan Arae Official Website has taken great pride in the relationships that it has developed with its guests. In keeping with this tradition, I am dedicated to protecting your privacy and handling any personal information I obtain from you with care and respect. This Kids’ Privacy Policy is designed to answer questions regarding my privacy policies and principles with respect to children under the age of 13.


Building on my general Privacy Policy, I recognize the need to provide additional privacy protections when children visit the sites on which this Kids’ Privacy Policy is posted. I explain those additional protections here in this Kids’ Privacy Policy. For your convenience, this Kids’ Privacy Policy uses terms that are defined in my general Privacy Policy.


The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act requires that I inform parents and legal guardians about how I collect, use, and disclose personal information from children under 13 years of age; and that I obtain the consent of parents and guardians in order for children under 13 years of age to use certain features of my Web sites. Below I explain how I do that for these “kids.” Also, when I use the term “parent” below, I mean to include legal guardians.


What types of personal information do we collect about kids?

Kids can surf Joan Arae Official Website and other Joan Arae sites, view content, and play many games without any personal information being collected. I do not collect personal information from kids unless they register on my sites. Typically, kids will register in order to participate in sweepstakes or contests or to participate in a special activity. The only information I collect from kids during my registration process is a kid’s first name, parent’s e-mail address, kid’s birth date, member name, and password. I collect birth dates to validate the ages of my guests, including kids. I do not collect any other personally identifiable information from kids during my registration process. I also will collect a kid’s e-mail address from a parent for the purpose of sending the kid e-mail related to a subscription. For example, I would send Online Post to a kid directly at the request of the kid’s parent. Note that all sites that are directed to children under 13 are prohibited by law from conditioning a kid’s participation in an online activity on the kid’s providing more personal information than is reasonably necessary.


I may collect personal information from parents in order to allow kids to participate in certain features located on my Web sites and within my kids’ subscription products. These features may include one to one instant message chatting, sending e-mail, posting on message boards, and other similar activities. In the course of a kid’s participation in these features, a kid may also provide me additional information about himself or herself, such as the contents of his or her chat or message board postings. If a parent allows me to collect personal information about their kid, I may link certain information collected through technology (see the “Information Collected Through Technology” section of my general Privacy Policy) to that personal information.


How do I use and share the personally identifiable information that I have collected about kids?

If a kid registers for a sweepstakes or contest, I use the parent’s e-mail address to notify the parent of the kid’s registration request (as described in detail below). To personalize communications to a kid regarding a specific product, I may use the kid’s first name combined with the parent’s last name and a mailing address provided by the parent when signing up for that specific product. I may collect a kid’s e-mail address from the parent in order to send the kid a newsletter, such as Online Post. In addition, personal information regarding a kid may be collected and used to enable a kid’s participation in certain interactive features such as instant message chatting, sending e-mail, posting on message boards and other similar activities. These activities may involve disclosure of a kid’s personal information to third parties. In addition, I may share a kid’s personal information with third parties to the extent reasonably necessary to: protect the security of integrity of my sites; to take precautions against liability; to respond to judicial process; or to the extent permitted under provisions of law, to provide information to law enforcement agencies or for an investigation related to public safety.


How do I notify and obtain consent from parents for the collection of information from their kids?

I send parents an e-mail when their kid registers and enters a sweepstakes or contest and I provide parents 48 hours to refuse their kid’s registration and entry in the sweepstakes or contest. If the parent refuses to allow the kid’s registration and entry, I delete the kid’s information from my database. If I don’t hear back from the parent, I assume it is acceptable for the kid to be registered and entered in the sweepstakes or contest. Once a parent permits a kid to register, the kid will be able to enter future registration-based sweepstakes or contests without any further notification to the parent. If a kid wins a sweepstakes or contest, I notify the parent at the parent’s e-mail address provided to me during the registration process and request that the parent provide their postal address for purposes of delivering the prize. I may publish a winner’s first name, first initial of last name, city, and state of residence on my Web sites.


I collect personal information from kids when they participate in activities such as one to one instant message chatting. Before allowing a kid to use these features, I send an e-mail to the kid’s parent requesting the parent’s affirmative consent to the kid’s participation. If the parent responds by e-mail and gives such consent, I then follow that communication with an e-mail confirmation to the parent and allow the kid to participate in the activity.


Before allowing a kid to use a feature of my Web sites that might result in the public disclosure of the kid’s information to third parties on the Internet, such as posting on open message boards, I require a high level of verification to confirm that the parent has given permission for the kid’s participation in such features. For example, I may require a parent to provide us information, speak to a trained telephone operator or return by postal mail or fax a signed consent form.


How can parents access, change or delete personally identifiable information about their kids?

At any time parents can refuse to permit me to collect further personal information from their kid and can request that any personal information I have collected be deleted from my records. A parent can contact me to access, change, or delete the personal information that I have collected from his or her kid by sending an e-mail to Please include the kid’s member name and the parent’s e-mail address in the e-mail so that I can better assist you with your inquiry or request.


How will I notify parents if my Kids’ Privacy Policy changes?

I may amend my Kids’ Privacy Policy at any time. I will provide parents notice by e-mail of any material changes in the way I intend to collect, use, and/or share kids’ personal information. Please note that, at all times, parents should update their personal information to provide me current e-mail addresses. I will apply material changes in my Kids’ Privacy Policy only in conformance with applicable law, including any applicable provisions that require parental consent.
