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?
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.
