Kids and Internet Safety

We at Motivating Moments LLC understand that the Internet presents an opportunity for us to reach the public in new and exciting ways. Motivating Moments LLC also recognizes the privacy concerns of parents, and the importance of protecting the privacy of the information we collect from children on our web site. Parents of children can be confident that any personal information that may be provided to our web site will be collected and maintained in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). Motivating Moments LLC encourages parents to supervise their children’s activities online and to participate with their children’s online activities whenever possible.

Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Information from Children Under 13

When a visitor to our Site is under the age of 13, Motivating Moments LLC does not require the disclosure of more personally identifiable information (“PII”) than is reasonably necessary for him or her to participate in an activity as a condition of such participation.

Motivating Moments LLC may use different types of PII submitted to our web sites by children under 13 in a variety of ways, which are described below. In each instance, we comply with the parental consent requirements of COPPA.

Use of a Child’s Information by Motivating Moments LLC

We may collect a child’s email address in connection with a submission of a quotation/story or poem for the sole purpose of communicating with the child on a one-time-only basis This information will not be used to re-contact the child, and will be deleted from our records.

We may collect a child’s email address in order to respond more than once to a child’s specific request. For example, the child may want to receive other online communications from Motivating Moments LLC. In these instances Motivating Moments LLC will also obtain a parent’s email address along with the child’s. Before any further contact with the child, Motivating Moments LLC will send an email to the parent (a) notifying him or her we have collected the child’s email address in order to respond more than once to the child’s request for a subscription, information, etc; (b) informing the parent that he or she can refuse us permission to contact the child, and how to do so; and (c) informing the parent that if he or she does not respond to the email within 72 hours, Motivating Moments LLC may use the child’s information for the purpose for which it was submitted.

We may collect a child’s PII (including name, email address, state/province and age) for such activities as requests for suggestions, subscription registrations, content submissions, or requests for additional information. In these instances we will initially collect only the child’s name and online contact information and the email address of the child’s parent. Before using this information for any purpose, we will send the parent an email that (a) informs the parent that we wish to collect and use the child’s personal information and need the parent’s consent to do so, and (b) provides the parent with a link to access to this Privacy Policy, which describes our information collection and use policies as required by COPPA. If the proposed use of the child’s personal information does not involve disclosure to a third party, then Motivating Moments LLC will ask the parent to provide consent by return email. Upon receipt of the email consent, we will send the parent a confirming email. If the proposed use of the child’s PII involves disclosure to third parties, the email we send to the parent will ask the parent either to (i) return by postal mail or fax a consent form that will be attached to the email, or (ii) call our office number where consent can be given over the phone. If parental consent is not obtained by one of these methods within one week, Motivating Moments LLC will delete all of the child’s and parent’s PII from its records. In addition, parents can revoke a prior consent at any time.

We may collect a child’s name and email address to the extent reasonably necessary to protect the security of this Site, to protect against liability or as required or permitted by law. Information collected for these reasons will not be used for any other purpose.

Sharing Children’s Personal Information With Third Parties.

Motivating Moments LLC will not share your child’s information with any third party. As noted above, parents may exercise their option not to consent to the disclosure of their child’s PII to third parties. Parents may consent to Motivating Moments LLC’s collection and use of a child’s PII without consenting to the disclosure of the information to third parties.

Links/Co-Branded Sites

As noted in the Privacy Policy, our web sites may link directly to sites operated by third party advertisers, business partners and affiliated companies. Those sites, which are not controlled by Motivating Moments LLC, may collect PII from your child. Parents should therefore check the relevant site’s privacy policy to understand how it collects and uses children’s personal information. Motivating Moments LLC will not share in any personal information obtained by a site from a child under the age of 13 unless that site follows the requirements of COPPA.

Reviewing and Making Changes to Personally Identifiable

If you would like to know whether we have collected personal information about your child, please provide us with the activities that he or she participated in one of our web sites which requested personal information. After reviewing the relevant databases, we will confirm whether we have collected such information about your child.

Prior to changing or deleting such information, we require that you provide us with proof of your name and address, such as a valid driver’s license, and proof that your child resides with you or is otherwise in your custody. Once we have determined such information is satisfactory, we will immediately delete or modify your child’s information in our database and/or refrain from collecting any other personally identifiable information from your child in the future, if you so request. However, there may be residual information that will remain within our databases that may or may not contain personally identifiable information. This residual information will not be given to any other third party or used for any commercial purpose.
