But first a note about children’s privacy . . . We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have inadvertently obtained personal information on a child under the age of 13, that information will be deleted from our systems. Iyca.org encourages parents to go online with their kids. Here are a few tips to help make a child’s online experience safer:
Teach kids never to give out personal information, unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult. This includes their name, address, phone number, school, etc.
Know the sites your kids are visiting and which sites are appropriate.
Look for Web site and other privacy policies. Know how your child’s information is being treated.
