A SPECIAL NOTE FOR PARENTS CONCERNING PRIVACY
Poodletales Holdings makes a special effort to encourage children to consult with their parents before furnishing data. However, Poodletales Holdings believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address, and other personal information without parental permission.
We do not seek to acquire information specifically from children under the age of 13 on www.thepoodletales.com and/or any other website operated by Poodletales Holdings (“The Poodletales website” or “Web Site”). or knowingly solicit or collect personally identifiable information online from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If Poodletales Holdings learns that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information online in contravention of these measures, it will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from its databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law). If you become aware of any personally identifiable information we have collected from children under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
