I. INFORMATION REQUESTED FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE

Parents: We are a general audience Web site. Because we understand that our entire Web site may be appealing to children, we have elected to be fully compliant with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

We encourage children and parents to explore our Web site together. Please remind your children, that they should check with you before providing any personal information.

A. WHAT INFORMATION MAY BE COLLECTED

Personally Identifiable Information

--The St. Louis Artists’ Guild accepts financial donations through its Web site. In order to make a donation, a Web site visitor must provide his or her name, address and credit card information. We do not knowingly accept credit card information from children under the age of 13, or from individuals who are not the proper cardholder.

--The St. Louis Artists’ Guild Web site has links to PayPal and individual artists. When a visitor to the St. Louis Artists’ Guild Web site clicks on any of the PayPal or individual artists links, the visitor is taken to a Web site operated by the third-party vendor. Parents please note that the St. Louis Artists’ Guild does not dictate or supervise the information collection and use policies of these third-party vendors.

Parents: We do not at this time share personally identifiable information collected by St. Louis Artists’ Guild from children under the age of 13 with third parties. However, in the event that our policies change, you will have a choice as to what information about your child, if any, is shared.

Under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, prior to using personally identifiable information collected from a child under the age of 13, the St. Louis Artists’ Guild is required to obtain parental consent. Should the St. Louis Artists’ Guild seek parental consent, parents will receive an email request notifying them in what activity the child has chosen to participate. Requests for parental consent will explain how we collect, use, and disclose children’s personal information. Parents will then be given the opportunity (1) to opt out of their child’s participation in any activity; and (2) to select what information, if any, the St. Louis Artists’ Guild may share about the child. If a parent opts his or her child out, no information about that child will be retained by the St. Louis Artists’ Guild. However, the child may be prevented from participating in certain St. Louis Artists’ Guild activities that require personal information.
