VI.   Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy

 

Protecting the privacy of children is paramount.

It is our intent to fully comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

 

Our Emagination Tech Camps Sites & Services are intended for general audiences. We do not knowingly permit anyone under 13 years of age to provide us with personal information without obtaining a parent's or guardian’s verifiable consent, except where:

  • the sole purpose of collecting the name or online contact information of a parent or child is to provide notice and obtain parental consent;

  • the purpose of collecting a parent’s online contact information is to provide voluntary notice to, and subsequently update the parent about, the child’s participation in our Emagination Tech Camps Sites & Services that do not otherwise collect, use, or disclose children's personal information;

  • the sole purpose of collecting online contact information from a child is to respond directly on a one-time basis to a specific request from the child, and where such information is not used to re-contact the child or for any other purpose, is not disclosed, and is deleted by us promptly after responding to the child’s request;

  • the purpose of collecting a child’s and a parent’s online contact information is to respond directly more than once to the child’s specific request, and where such information is not used for any other purpose, disclosed, or combined with any other information collected from the child;

  • the purpose of collecting a child’s and a parent’s name and online contact information, is to protect the safety of a child, and where such information is not used or disclosed for any purpose unrelated to the child’s safety;

  • we collect a persistent identifier and no other personal information and such identifier is used for the sole purpose of providing support for the internal operations of Emagination Tech Camps Sites & Services; or

  • otherwise permitted or required by law.

If we receive the verifiable consent of a child's parent or guardian to collect, use, and/or disclose the child's information, we will only collect, use, and disclose the information as described in this privacy statement. Some features of our Emagination Tech Camps Sites & Services permit a child user to enter comments, such as forums and chat rooms, through which the child could provide personal information that would be visible to other users. If you are the parent or guardian of a child user, please advise your child of the risks of posting personal information on this Emagination Tech Camps Sites & Services or any other site.

XVI.  Credit Card Information & Transactions

 

All credit card transactions are managed by our third-party. For your security, your credit card security number is not stored or processed on our website. Our third-party camp registration service has procedures in place designed to reduce the risk of accidental destruction, or loss, or unauthorized disclosure or access to such information appropriate to the nature of the information concerned, including:

  • (where appropriate) password protection, encryption, and use of secure communication transmission software (known as "transport layer security" or "TLS") to protect their Sites;

  • placing confidentiality requirements on its employees and service providers;

  • destroying or permanently anonymizing personal information if it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected; and

  • following strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal information to prevent unauthorized access to it. While we take appropriate technical and organizational measures to safeguard your personal information, no transmission over the Internet can ever be guaranteed to be secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of any personal information that you transfer over the Internet, and any such transmission is at your own risk.


The security of personal information depends in part on the security of the computer used to communicate with us. We recommend that users take steps to protect against unauthorized access to passwords, computer, and web-enabled devices by signing off after using a shared computer, inserting a password on your web-enabled device, choosing a password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, keeping your passwords private, and periodically changing passwords. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen or compromised passwords, or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

Our third-party service stores personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. Where your information is no longer needed, we ensure that it is disposed of securely. There are circumstances when we may be required to store your personal information for longer periods of time to be in accordance with legal, regulatory, tax, or accounting requirements. In specific circumstances we may store your personal information for longer periods of time, so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of complaints or challenges, or if we reasonably believe there is the prospect of litigation relating to your personal information or transactions.

 

We use state-of-the-art Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to safeguard and protect your personal information and transactions over the internet. Credit card information is encrypted by the third-party service, and cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.
