When a user creates a CompetitionSuite account, we ask for username, first name, email address, password and a birth date. If we determine the child is under 13 (a "kid"), we will ask for a parent's name and email address so that we can notify the parent that the kid has created an account at CompetitionSuite and seek the parent's consent to allow the kid's participation. If the parent provides consent, we may collect additional information from the kid, including a profile avatar, which could include a photograph. The information we collect from kids may be directly linked to their actions on the Service, such as their self-reported competition scores or when they send us a message.
We use this information to operate, maintain and provide the functionality of the Service and to communicate with the kid and the parent about activities on the Service. We may also send Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, changes or updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). Registered users cannot opt-out of Service related emails. When a kid under 13 creates a CompetitionSuite account, we use the parent's email address to notify the parent of the kid's registration (see "How we notify parents of the data collection" below). Disclosing competition-related information, such as participant names and scores, is integral to the Service. Your child’s use of the Service may involve disclosure of certain personal information to judges, other competitors, and possibly the public internet.
Our Service generally permits users to connect with others on the Service and to share information with others. Members under 13 have restricted sharing capabilities, though a kid under 13 may be permitted to share information in the following manner:
In addition, we may share a kid's personal information with:
We may also share information with others in an aggregated and anonymous form that does not reasonably identify any user, including our kid users, directly as an individual.
We do not permit interest based advertising on our site.
We send parents an email when their kid creates an account at CompetitionSuite and ask the parent to register with the Service and provide consent for the kid to use the Service. If the parent refuses to allow the kid's registration, we delete the kid's information from our databases. The kid will not be permitted to engage in the core functionality of the Service unless and until we receive verifiable parental consent to engage in such activity. The parent may provide verifiable parental consent by supplying a credit card or debit card in association with credit card or debit card in association with a payment to the Service of a nominal parent verification fee. At that time, the kid will be able to participate in the Service as permitted by the parental controls set in the Parent Dashboard.
A registered user can modify personal data or delete a CompetitionSuite account at any time by visiting the "Settings" page. A parent user that has provided verifiable parental consent has full access to the kid's account through the Parent Dashboard, and may view, modify, and consent to the collection and use of the kid's personal information.
A parent or child may contact us at any time by emailing us or by contacting us at the address below to review, change, and/or delete any information we have collected from a kid under 13 as well as to disallow any further collection or use of the child's information.
