What Information Is Collected
When a child under age 13 attempts to register with Customer Connection, we require that he or she have a parent or guardian create an account and to obtain parental permission. No child under 13 can register without a parent’s permission.
Protecting the online privacy of children is especially important, and those under the age of 13 are protected by federal law. For that reason, TOOBEEZ does not knowingly permit children under the age of 13 to become registered members of our sites or to buy goods and services on our sites without verifiable parental consent.
It's our policy to create website content that requires minimum collection of information from our visitors. From time to time, however, we may request limited personally identifiable information (e.g. child’s email address and/or email address of parent or third party), as explained below, in order to conduct online contests or sweepstakes or offer other online activities. Toobeez.com does not condition a child’s participation in any of our online activities on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity.
Customer Connection Screen Names
Access to the Customer Connection requires that each user has his or her own login name and password. This login name and password is created at the time of registration. Your login name will be viewable by other users with each message created.
Contests and Sweepstakes
Toobeez.com occasionally may offer contests and sweepstakes, which may be entered online. To participate in a contest or sweepstakes, a child is asked to provide his or her first name and email address. Sometimes, when we conduct contests or sweepstakes that may involve more than a one-time contact, we ask additionally for the email address of his or her parent. In such types of contests or sweepstakes, we send the child's parent an email within two business days informing him or her of the child's entry and give the parent the option to have the child's entry deleted. All the information collected by Toobeez.com is securely maintained and used only for the purpose of conducting the contest or sweepstakes. Once the contest or sweepstakes if finished, we then delete any personal information collected. The information collected in a Toobeez.com sweepstakes will remain private.
Thanks to the Internet, our children have unprecedented access to the world's knowledge base. From a computer in a school library or on a kitchen table, today's student literally can access information virtually anywhere with a few keystrokes and an inexpensive modem. Through e-mail and discussion groups, children share hobbies and learn about different cultures in online communities of children around the world.
We at TOOBEEZ believe our children will adopt what we call a Web Lifestyle, in which the Internet and its resources are a foundation of their life. Whether planning a vacation, scheduling automobile repair or attending a college class, they will depend on the Internet as we rely today on the telephone.
Yet like most communities, the Internet has its perils. Many parents and teachers would never consider allowing children to wander unaccompanied through the streets of a major city, and nor should they permit children unsupervised access to the Internet.
TOOBEEZ believes that parents are the appropriate arbiters of a child's Internet experience. We want to help you decide how to help your child have a pleasant travel through the online world, and to let you know that we are actively supporting you.
We also have jointly sponsored non-partisan Internet sites where you can learn about the Internet, how to enjoy it safely, and how to ensure your children use it appropriately.
