Children's Privacy

Mahrnee's Place and is a site that appeals to "kids of all ages" and for this reason, many of our contests, promotions and/or products and services may exclude children under the age of 13. We have made every effort to ensure that users under the age of 13 must first obtain parental consent before becoming a member of our online community. We do this in the spirit of complying with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

When a child under the age of 13 registers as a member on our site (registration is free, but required in order to gain access to some of our services) or wishes to participate in one of our promotions, we require that they obtain their parents consent. This is done through the following process:

Without that confirmation number (which is supplied only to the parent's e-mail address), the child is unable to participate as a member of Mahrnee's Place and (although he or she will have access to all of the services available to non-registered users). Until that confirmation number is supplied, all information supplied by the child is "frozen" and will not be used by Mahrnee's Place and for any purpose other than contacting the parent through e-mail and providing the confirmation number and instructions for completing the child's registration process.

Completion of the registration process with the confirmation number supplied to the parent's e-mail address shall be considered as receipt of permission from the parent or guardian allowing Mahrnee's Place and to accept and use the personally identifiable information submitted by the child under the terms of this Privacy Policy, our Terms of Service and our User Agreement (with the understanding that their personal information as a child and a member is highly safeguarded and will not be sold or released to a second or third party-see below for further details).

If a parent wishes to refuse to permit further collection or use of their child's information by Mahrnee's Place and that parent can send an e-mail to the same account which requested verification (childprivacy@Mahrnee's Place and with the subject line "request deletion of child's access."

Under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, no web site operator is permitted to require a child under the age of 13 to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity as a condition of participation.

All Mahrnee's Place and users, members and account holders, including parents and children, are subject to this Privacy Policy. According to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, any person under the age of 13(thirteen) is considered a "child" and therefore children are only subject to this Privacy Policy upon receipt of parental consent.
