Children Under the Age of 13

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and its rules (collectively, “COPPA”) require us to inform parents and legal guardians (as used in this section, “parents“) about our practices for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from children under the age of 13 (“children“). It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child’s parent for certain collection, use, and disclosure of the child’s personal information with certain exceptions.

This section notifies parents of:

  • The types of information we may collect from children.
  • How we use the information we collect.
  • Our practices for disclosing that information.
  • Our practices for notifying and obtaining parents’ consent when we collect personal information from children, including how a parent may revoke consent.
  • All operators that collect or maintain information from children through this www.ripleys.com Website.

This section only applies to children under the age of 13 and supplements the other provisions of this privacy policy. Only the other provisions of this privacy policy apply to teens and adults.

Information We Collect from Children

Children can access many parts of the Website and its content and use many of its features without providing us with personal information. However, some content and features are available only to registered users or require us to collect certain information, including personal information, from them. In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the Website.

We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in an activity, and we do not condition his or her participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary.

We only collect information from children who participate in a child-directed contest, and we only collect information from the child to enter them into the contest and to notify the child of the winner of the contest. We will only contact children who participate in the contest once, at the conclusion of the contest to notify the child if they have won. Once that notice is sent, we will delete the information collected from all participating children.

Information We Collect Directly When a Child Participates in a Contest. To participate in a contest, a child must provide us with the following information to register: the child’s first name, child’s birth date, a parent’s email address, and the child’s email address. We may request additional information from your child, but this information is optional. We specify whether information is required or optional when we request it.

We will not allow children who participate in our contests to communicate with others on or through this Website.  Our website does allow on-line ticket purchasing, or playing games, and posting to public areas of the Site (“Social Features”). The nature of these features require the disclosure of personal information. We do not monitor or review this content before it is posted, and we do not control the actions of third parties who view information on the website. We encourage parents to educate their children about safe internet use and to monitor their children’s use of social features on any website that the child may access.

Automatic Information Collection. We use technology to automatically collect information from our users, including children, when they access and navigate through the Website and use certain of its features. The information we collect through these technologies may include:

  • One or more persistent identifiers that can be used to recognize a user over time and across different websites and online services.
  • Information that identifies a device’s location (geolocation information).

We also may combine non-personal information we collect through these technologies with personal information about you or your child that we collect online.

For information about our automatic information collection practices, including how you can opt out of certain information collection, see the “Information Collection and Use section of our general Privacy Policy Information Collection and Use.

How We Use Your Child’s Information

We use the personal information we collect from your child to:

  • Register him or her with the Site so that the child may participate in a contest.
  • Communicate with him or her about whether the child has won or lost the contest in which the child has participated.

We use the information we collect automatically through technology (see Automatic Information Collection) and other non-personal information we collect to improve our Website and to deliver a better and more personalized experience by enabling us to:

  • Estimate our audience size and usage patterns.
  • Store information about the child’s preferences, allowing us to customize the content according to individual interests.
  • Speed up your searches.

We use geolocation information we collect to deliver relevant content and advertising, to monitor, evaluate, and optimize the operation of our sites and services, and to analyze traffic on our sites.

Our Practices for Disclosing Children’s Information

We do not share, sell, rent, or transfer children’s personal information.

We may disclose aggregated information about many of our users. After providing notice of whether a child has won or lost a contest, we will delete all personal information that we have collected from the child, and will retain the parent’s email address in our records.  In addition, we may disclose children’s personal information:

  • To third parties we use to support the internal operations of our Website and who are bound by contractual or other obligations to use the information only for such purpose and to keep the information confidential.
  • If we are required to do so by law or legal process, such as to comply with any court order or subpoena or to respond to any government or regulatory request.
  • If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Ripley , our customers or others, including to:
  • protect the safety of a child;
  • protect the safety and security of the Website; or
  • enable us to take precautions against liability.
  • To law enforcement agencies or for an investigation related to public safety.

In addition, if Ripley  is involved in a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Ripley ‘s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding or event, we may transfer the personal information we have collected or maintain to the buyer or other successor.

Accessing and Correcting Your Child’s Personal Information

At any time, you may review the child’s personal information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete the personal information, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using the child’s information.

You can review, change, or delete your child’s personal information by sending us an email at legal@ripleys.com. To protect your privacy and security, we may require you to take certain steps or provide additional information to verify your identity before we provide any information or make corrections.
