7 – A Note to Parents

The Centre is very sensitive to privacy issues and is committed to protecting the online privacy of children and making the Internet safe for our users. As a result, no Personal Information should be submitted to or posted on this site by children under the age of 13 without their parent’s or guardian’s permission. In addition, if a user younger than 13 wishes to send us Personal Information, he or she must first give us his or her parent’s or guardian’s email address so that we can obtain their permission or have the child’s parent or guardian consent on his or her behalf. No Personal Information will knowingly be accepted from a child under 13 before this permission is obtained. Be assured that the Centre will not condition a child’s participation in any website activity on the child’s disclosure of more Personal Information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity.

If your child has already provided us with Personal Information, you may ask to see this information for the purpose of correcting it or ask us to delete this information from our records entirely (see “Who to Contact” below.)
