Information You Provide to Us
We collect the information you enter on our web site. Providing personal information and becoming a Kiddo Magazine (kiddos club) member is voluntary. Non-members can still use the majority of our site. However, non-members will not have the opportunity to access certain enhanced content and application areas, win our seasonal promotions. When you register with Kiddo Magazine, you provide personal information. Kiddo Magazine uses this information to better create and organize our content programming to meet your needs.
The personally identifiable information we may request from you, and with which we identify you as a member, includes the following: first name, last name, email address, gender, and date of birth, ZIP code, username, and password. When you wish to purchase something, we will also ask you for the following: street address, city, state, phone number, and credit card number.
Please note: Kiddo Magazine does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use Kiddo Magazine.com only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
We Protect Kids' Privacy
Kiddo Magazine encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children. We urge parents to instruct their children to never give out their real names, addresses, or phone numbers without permission when using the Internet. We recognize a special obligation to protect personal information obtained from children.
Notification and Verifiable Parental Consent
Before any personally identifiable information is collected, we will do our best to notify the parent or guardian that their child is participating. Notification will include the exact nature and intended use of the information we are collecting, as well as the opportunity for the parent or guardian to prevent the use of the information and the child's participation in the activity. For every child (anyone under 13 years of age) we require the parent or guardian to provide verifiable parental consent such as an email, mail-in letter, or phone call to Kiddo Magazine.
Exceptions to Verifiable Parental Consent
There are a few instances where we will NOT get verifiable parental consent, such as:
- Requesting the contact information of a parent or guardian for the sole purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notification to the parent or guardian;
- Collecting a child's contact information solely to directly respond to the child's request on a one-time basis (for example, to provide assistance with a particular study question). We will not use that information to re-contact the child for any other purpose (we will purge from our system the child's personal information after responding);
- Collecting a child's contact information and the contact information of his/her parent or guardian solely to directly respond more than once to a specific request from the child (for example, to satisfy the request for a newsletter subscription). In this instance, the parent or guardian will be notified that the child made such a request and be informed of the information provided by the child. The parent or guardian will have an opportunity at any time to revoke the child's request (i.e., unsubscribe). We will not use the child's personal information to re-contact the child for any other purpose.

Computers and the Internet are here to stay and kids will be navigating both with the skill and ease of born “cybernauts”. We believe it is important for you to understand the perils of the online world and to help educate your kids.
