We are sensitive to privacy issues and look to protect your child’s information. We also strive to be fully compliant with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

We do not require your child to provide more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity.
Please also note that we do not offer activities that require the ongoing collection and use of personal information provided by children, so we will seek your permission each time we need to collect personal information from your child.
If you would like to review personal information about your child that we have on file, or request that certain information be changed or deleted, please send us an email through our Contact Us page.
