How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Children’s privacy

PFC encourages parents and guardians to supervise their child’s use of the Internet. We urge parents to instruct their children to never give out their real names, addresses, phone numbers, or other personal information without a parent’s or guardian’s permission when using the Internet. We recognize a special obligation to protect personal information obtained from children and by design do not collect this information. For this reason, PFC does not knowingly request, collect, or store any personal information from children under 18.In compliance with COPPA (the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act), we have adopted the following policies to keep children safe (there are exceptions to these policies as noted below under the heading “Exceptions to Verifiable Parental Consent and Information Collected from Children”):

  • We will not knowingly collect, use, or distribute personal information from children under the age of 18 without prior verifiable consent from a parent or guardian.
  • We will not knowingly ask a child under the age of 18 to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any aspect of the Services.
  • We will not knowingly keep any personal information that is inadvertently included in a child’s email submission, help inquiry, or other one-time request, if we know that the child is under the age of 18. Any such information will be purged promptly after the issue has been resolved.
  • We will not knowingly post any personal information that is inadvertently included in a child’s submission to a general audience contribution area if we know that the child is under the age of 18. Upon notice to us, these submissions will be deleted and such submissions will be handled anonymously thereafter.
  • We will not knowingly provide any direct link to websites that are unsuitable for minors.

Upon request, PFC will provide a parent or guardian with a description of the information that may have been provided about their child during a registration process for a program or service of this site. If we have collected and stored personal information from a child, we will give parents the ability to review their child’s personal information, request that we discontinue further collection or use of their child’s personal information, and/or request that we delete their child’s personal information. If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact PFC at [email protected]

PARENTS ARE REQUIRED TO SUPERVISE MINORS’ USE OF THE SITE

We require parents/guardians to supervise any minors participating in any aspect of the Services through the parent or guardian’s account. Minors are not eligible to register accounts on the PFCKidz Site. We also require that users not use personally identifying information of minors in usernames or other publicly visible portions of the Services, or portions of the Services visible to other registered users. During registration, we ask users whether minors in their households or under their care will be using the Services through the parent/guardian’s account as permitted in the Terms. If users indicate that minors will use the Services through the parent/guardian’s account, we will require the parent or guardian to execute a waiver and release on behalf of him-, her-, or theirself and on behalf of the minor(s).
