CSI does not condition a child’s participation in any Online Service on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity.
Neither CSI nor the service providers who provide support for the internal operations of the Online Services collect personal contact information (e.g., full name, email address, home address, or phone number) or any geolocation information from children under the age of 13. CSI and its service providers may collect information that is reasonably necessary to support the internal operations of the Online Services (see section below on “Cookies and Other Technologies”). In the event that we have knowledge that a child under the age of 13 has submitted any personal information to us via the Online Services, we may use the email address provided by the child for the sole purpose of responding to the child’s question or carrying out his or her request on a one-time-only basis. We will not use the email address provided by the child for any other purpose, and we will delete it from our records once the question has been answered or the request has been fulfilled. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personal contact information other than an email address from a child under the age of 13, we will delete the information immediately. Features on the Online Services that are open to non-registered users, such as games, worksheets, math challenge game boards, or certain materials that can be submitted to CSI, collect only non-personal information, such as a first name, grade level, school, hometown, and home state.
In the event that you believe we have inadvertently collected personal information from your child, you can review such personal information collected from your child through the Online Services, have such information deleted, and refuse to allow further collection or use of such information. Parents can agree to the collection of personal information from their child and the use of such information without agreeing to the disclosure of such information to third parties. Parents generally have a right to opt out of having personal information collected from their child disclosed to third parties. In the event that you believe we have collected personal information from your child, please contact us at the email address provided below and a CSI representative will guide you through the necessary procedures.
