Privacy Policy

Project Youth Safety is committed to protecting your online privacy when visiting our website. We do not collect and keep any personal information from you unless you volunteer it and you are at least thirteen (13) years old. We also do not collect and keep personal information online from children under the age of 13 without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, except in limited circumstances authorized by law and described in this policy.

The purpose of this privacy policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you online when you visit our site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct the information.

Project Youth Safety has special concerns about the privacy of users who are children under the age of 13, and we comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Parents are strongly encouraged to participate in their children’s online activities and monitor their children’s use of emails and engagement in other electronic communication. For more information about COPPA or children’s privacy, please visit www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/coppa/intro.htm.

What is personal information?
Personally identifiable information is information that can personally identify you, such as your full name (first and last name), your email address and your postal address. Information that may be personal in nature, but cannot identify who you are, is not personally identifiable information. For example, your age and your first name are bits of personal identification, but are not personally identifiable information because they cannot be used to identify you.

What type of personal information do you collect?
We will collect no more personally identifiable information from you than is reasonably necessary for you to participate in an online activity or be notified of upcoming events or contests.

We may collect information through technology to make our site more interesting and useful to you. For instance, we collect IP addresses and use technology to track traffic patterns on the site. Once you have logged into the website, we track your activities by using logs of database transactions and server interactions. We use this information to understand which areas of our website are most appealing or least appealing. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. None of the information collected through these methods is, or is connected to, personally identifiable information about you.

Our site may allow you to sign up to receive newsletters, RSS feeds, and email notifications of upcoming events and or contests. In order to participate in these activities, we may collect your first name, your email address, your parent’s email address if you are under the age of 13 years old or additional information about you and/or your career field if applicable. If you are under 13 years old, we use your parent’s email address to notify him/her that you have provided personally identifiable information to us for these purposes, and to provide them an opportunity to opt-out of the collection of the information.

There are known methods that spammers can use to hide their identity by using other people’s email addresses or logos to send out emails. If you doubt the genuineness of an email you receive that appears to be from Project Youth Safety, contact us at abuse@inobtr.org and do not forward the email. Forwarding the email might trigger a virus on your computer.

We may collect your first name and email address where necessary for your safety. We may also collect your name and email address for the limited purposes of protecting the security and the integrity of the site, taking precautions against liability, responding to the judicial process, or for law enforcement on a matter related to public safety.

Do you disclose any information to others?
All personally identifiable information collected by us is only used to provide services to Project Youth Safety. We do not share your personally identifiable information with any third parties for marketing purposes. We may engage third parties to assist with services related to the website, such as technical and processing services, contest fulfillment, mailings and analyzing website performance. These third parties are obligated to keep the information secure and confidential and must use the information only in connection with providing services to Project Youth Safety.

We may also disclose personally identifiable information to third parties in order to comply with court orders or with requests by law enforcement agencies, to enforce our Terms of Use, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of our website and users of the site.

Our site contains links to other websites, including websites directed to children. We have no control over the privacy practices or the content of any of our advertisers or other sites to which we provide links from our site. These other sites may use cookies, collect data or solicit personally identifiable information. We have no control over these practices and strongly recommend that you check the applicable privacy policy of the website sponsor when linking to other websites. Report any site you find offensive in their content or their practices to abuse@inobtr.org.

Can my personally identifiable information be reviewed or corrected?
