CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM CHILDREN, HOW WE USE IT, AND HOW AND WHEN WE COMMUNICATE WITH PARENTS
BLUEPRINT STUDIOS offers its users a website, online facilities, and services, some of which are primarily for users above the age of 13, and others that are intended for users of all ages and their families. Below, we summarize potential instances of collection and outline how and when we will provide parental notice and/or seek parental consent. In any instance that we collect personal information from a child, we will retain that information only so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the activity request or allow the child to continue to participate in the activity, and ensure the security of our users and our services, or as required by law. In the event we discover we have collected information from a child in a manner inconsistent with COPPA's requirements, we will either delete the information or immediately seek the parent's consent for that collection.
Children can, in many cases, register with our websites and online facilities and services to view content, participate in contests, and engage in special features, among other things. During the registration process, we may ask the child to provide certain information for notification and security purposes, including a parent or guardian's email address, the child's first name, the location, the child's member or account username, and password. We also may ask for birth dates from children to validate their ages. We strongly advise children never to provide any personal information in their usernames. Please note that children can choose whether to share their information with us, but certain features cannot function without it.
As a result, children may not be able to access certain features if required information has not been provided. We will not require a child to provide more information than is reasonably necessary in order to participate in an online activity.
PARENTAL CHOICES AND CONTROLS
At any time, parents can refuse to permit us to collect further personal information from their children in association with a particular registration and can request that we delete from our records the personal information we have collected in connection with that registration. Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to registration termination and as a result, children may not be able to access certain features.
Where a child has registered for a BLUEPRINT STUDIOS sponsored virtual event, we provide the following method to allow parents to access, change, or delete the personally identifiable information that we have collected from their children.
