Children's Online Privacy Policy

Along with our general Privacy Policy, Artree recognizes the need to provide additional privacy protections to children under the age of 13. We are required by law to inform you, the parents and legal guardians, about if and how we may collect, use, and disclose personal information submitted by your children under the age of 13.

Does Artree collect any personal information from my child when registering on the Site?

No. In line with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") (https://www.ftc.gov/enforcement/rules/rulemaking-regulatory-reform-proceedings/childrens-online-privacy-protection-rule), Artree allows only parents or legal guardians to register on the Site and enroll in classes on behalf of their children under 13 years of age.

The personal information entered into the registration form is limited to the name and email address of the parent or legal guardian. The personal information entered into the payment form is limited to the necessary details of the payment method holder in order to successfully process the payment.

Does Artree collect any personal information from my child when using the Site?

No. Artree does not collect any personal information from your child. If a lesson includes a quiz or a similar assignment, the answers should be limited to answering the specific question. We do not ask for your child's name, email address, physical address or any other personal information directly from your child.  If, for some reason, your child enters any such personal information, Artree will use reasonable measures to delete such personal information from all records.

Does Artree collect any personal information about my child from me?

Yes. You as the parent or legal guardian may choose to include your child’s personal information (for example, first name or age) when communicating with Artree teachers, or when posting your child’s art as photos in our discussion boards and communities. Your agreement to this Privacy Policy serves as a verifiable parental consent or verifiable legal guardian consent to disclose your child’s personal information.

What if Artree decides to collect personal information from my child in the future?

Artree does not anticipate this to happen. However, in the event it does happen, Artree will obtain verifiable parental consent from you before collecting any personal information from your child under the age of 13.  Artree will also provide you with the choice of consenting to our collection and use of your child's information for internal purposes, but prohibiting us from disclosing that information to third parties for other purposes. You will have the right to access your child's personal information and to review and/or modify and delete such information.

Who do I contact if I have questions regarding the privacy of my child’s personal information?
