Direct Notice to Parents / Consent Form
We recognize that some of our website visitors may be under the age of 13 and that they may want to participate in the interactive features of our website. Full participation in our website(s) and services requires the collection and submission of personally identifiable information. Please review and complete our Direct Notice to Parents / Consent Form (pdf) if you would like your child to be able to use all of the features of our website (particularly those that require personally identifiable information.)

What types of information do we collect about children?
To register for a Recognant member account, we require that you be at least 13 years of age or have your parent or legal guardian complete and return the parental consent form listed above under the subheading Direct Notice to Parents / Consent Form. We collect additional account-related (profile) information, but it is optional and provided at the discretion of the individual responsible for the account. We do not share this information with third-parties other than as necessary to operate our business (e.g. with our payment processors and website contractors.) These third-parties maintain data security and confidentiality practices consistent with our own.

Parental Consent
As noted above under the subheading Direct Notice to Parents / Consent Form, if your child is under 13 years of age, we need you to provide your consent before your child registers for our website or uses our services. (Note: You may register your child for a workshop without prior verification because the act of using a credit card is sufficient to verify the child is not making the purchase.) To provide consent for your child to sign up for a Recognant member account, please complete the consent form above and send it to the Site Operator for review.

New Consent if This Policy Changes
If we change the way we collect, use or disclose your child’s personal information, we will provide prominent notice on our website with a link to the new policy.

These Terms are Effective as of July 1st, 2013
