What information does christina-a.com collect from children and how does christina-a.com collect it?

When a child attempts to register on the site, the child will be asked to provide his or her name, gender, age group, e-mail address, and mailing address, as well as to create a user name and password. The child will also be given the option of providing the child's preferences or interests, and will be asked to either opt-in or opt-out of christina-a.com.

When a child's birth date indicates that he/she is under the age of 13 and the child attempts to submit his/her registration information, christina-a.com's system will automatically reject the submission and give the child the option of downloading and/or printing a parental consent form which the child may ask his/her parents to sign and mail or fax to christina-a.com. The consent form will request the information initially requested during the online registration process. christina-a.com will not collect or retain any personal information from a child under the age of 13 until we receive a signed parental consent form. Parental Consent Form

When a child who is 13 years old, but under 18 years old, attempts to submit his/her registration information, christina-a.com's system will accept the submission but generate an e-mail to the e-mail address provided by the child which asks the child to notify his/her parents (and get their permission) regarding the child's registration and the information submitted by the child.

How does christina-a.com use information about children?

Information about children under the age of 13 whose parents have returned signed consent forms will be used internally by christina-a.com to notify the child about important changes to the web site, new christina-a.com services and special offers the child may find valuable. Children, like adults, may always opt-out of future information requests or distributions by entering the word UNSUBSCRIBE as the subject of a reply to any christina-a.com e-mail.

Children under the age of 13 will never be asked to consent to disclosure to third parties, and we will not disclose their personal information to any third parties. A parent's consent to christina-a.com's collection and use of personal information about a child will never be treated as a consent to disclosure of that information to third parties.

christina-a.com is prohibited from conditioning a child's participation in an activity or contest on the disclosure of any more personal information than is reasonably necessary to allow the child to participate in that activity.

How does christina-a.com protect information about children?

christina-a.com is required by law to take reasonable security measures to protect personal information about children.

How can parents review their child's personal information and prevent its use or disclosure?

We will delete personal information about a child upon receipt of a written request from the parent who initially submitted such information. In the event of such a request, christina-a.com will retain only information necessary for record keeping in connection with past transactions.

Parents who submit personal information about their children may also submit a signed written request to review or modify the information about their children. Before disclosing information about a child, christina-a.com may request that the parent provide reasonable information about the parent for identification purposes, such as the parent's name, address, phone number, credit card number, or other information.
