Collection of Information, Use of it and Communication with Parents
Children can investigate the site, and can view and print content without giving any individual data other than the automatic collection of device “persistent identifiers,” examined in more detail below. Our site gathers limited individual data if the child registers to become a member or presents a question or request to us. In the event, the data gathered does not permit contact with him or her or his or her gadget (counting, for instance, collected data), we may utilize and uncover it for any reason, to the degree allowed by applicable law.
In the event the child wants to register to our site, we require the following data to be submitted:
- Username (we advise the child not to use his or her real name);
- Birth month and year.
We additionally require the child to provide a parent’s email address. We utilize the parent’s email address to look for parental consent for the child’s enrollment and to clarify what data we are gathering, how we plan to utilize it, and how the parent can renounce consent or demand, at any time, that we expel the record and erase any individual data gathered from the child (counting the parental contact data).
In the event, that you believe your child is taking part in an action that gathers individual data and you or another parent/guardian have NOT consented, or in the event that you no longer wish for your child to take an interest as an individual from the site, please don’t hesitate to reach us at ______________, and we will erase your child’s record and the parental contact data.
Content Generated by Child
Certain exercises on our site and applications permit the child to make or control content and save it. Some of these exercises don’t oblige children to give any individual data and during this time we may not bring about notice to the parents. In the event, when an activity asks the child to provide individual data, we will either ask the submitter to delete the information, or we will look for verifiable parental consent by email for collection. If the Philadelphia Sheriff’s Office plans to post content publicly or share it with a third-party for the third-party’s own use, we will obtain a higher level of parental consent.
- Ensure that the site functions properly;
- Enable us to conduct research and analysis to understand, address and improve the use and performance of the site; and,
- Diagnose and respond to problems.
