In order to do that we sometimes need to ask you for information so that we can provide the kind of content you want, when you want it. We want to customize our site for you so that it meets your needs as fully as possible--this includes customizing articles, discussions, banners and more. We may ask you to register or provide personal information when you visit certain areas of The King & His Court website, enter a contest, play games, complete surveys, subscribe to a service or to a newsletter, submit content, or ask us for information.

We only collect personally identifiable information from you when you voluntarily submit it. Providing your personal information to The King & His Court is optional. If you choose not to register or provide personal information you can still use our site but you will not have access to customized information.

Depending on the particular King & His Court website section with where you register, we may ask for your name, age, address and/or zip code, e-mail address, and name of school, business or organization. If you are under 18 years of age, we will also ask you to provide your parent’s or guardian’s e-mail address. We may also ask you to choose a user name and password to use when you log in to the site.

We Protect Kids’ Privacy:
As a parent, you’ve probably done a lot of thinking about protecting your family’s privacy on the Internet. Well, we’ve been thinking about it, too. We are working hard to provide you with the best information and the highest quality interaction on the Internet in an environment that is safe. In compliance with COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act), we have adopted the following policies to keep kids safe:

1. We will NOT knowingly collect, use or distribute personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable consent from a parent or guardian.
2. We will NOT knowingly collect, use or distribute personally identifiable information from teens between the ages of 13 and 17 without first notifying a parent or guardian.
3. Personally identifiable information we collect from children under the age of 13 will be used solely by The King & His Court or its agents for internal purposes only and will not be sold or otherwise distributed to third parties.
4. We will NOT knowingly allow a child under the age of 13 access to chat rooms, message boards, e-mail accounts, or other services within our website that would allow them to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information without prior verifiable consent from a parent or guardian.
5. We will NOT knowingly allow a teen between the ages of 13 and 17 access to chat rooms, message boards, e-mail accounts, or other services within our website that would allow them to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information without first notifying a parent or guardian.
6. We will NOT knowingly ask a child or teen to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any activity, game, or service.
7. We will NOT knowingly provide any direct link to Websites that are unsuitable for children or teens.
8. The King & His Court will not advertise on any site that does not comply with the regulations set forth under COPPA.
9. We will advise children under the age of 13 that they MUST obtain permission from their parent or guardian before sharing ANY personal information.

Upon request, The King & His Court will provide a parent or guardian with a description of the information that may have been provided about their child or teen during a registration process for a program or service of this site. The King & His Court only asks for a child's or teen’s personal information if it is necessary for registration to participate in a program or service. Registration data that is provided about children or teens is not used for marketing and is never shared with any other party. If you would like to view your child's registration data, request a change, or request that we delete any of your child's personal information, please send an e-mail to support@kingandhiscourt.org which includes your child's first and last name, school zip code, and your first and last name.

The King & His Court encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children. We urge parents to instruct their children to never give out their real names, addresses or phone numbers, without permission, when using the Internet. We recognize a special obligation to protect personal information obtained from children.

If you have any questions about our Kids' Privacy Policy please call The King & His Court at 1-509-735-2878 ext. 208.

Notification and Verifiable Parental Consent:
Certain areas and activities within our website ask visitors under the age of 18 to provide personal information such as their name, date of birth, e-mail address or school name. We only ask for the information that is necessary to participate in the particular activity.

Before any personally identifiable information is collected, we will do our best to notify the parent or guardian that their child or teen is participating. Notification will include the exact nature and intended use of the information we are collecting, as well as the opportunity for the parent or guardian to prevent the use of the information and the child’s participation in the activity. If the child is under 13 years of age we require the parent or guardian to provide verifiable parental consent such as an e-mail, mail-in letter, fax or toll free phone call to The King & His Court. If the individual is a teen between the ages of 13 and 17, The King & His Court will notify the parent or guardian that their teen is participating and sharing personal information but we do not require consent.

When verifiable parental consent has not yet been obtained, we will use online contact information (such as an e-mail address) only as is appropriate to:

1. Request the name or online contact information of a parent or guardian for the purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notification to the parent or guardian;
2. Respond directly to the child’s or teen’s request on a one-time basis (for example, to provide assistance with a particular study question), not using that information to re-contact the child or teen for any other purpose;
3. Respond more than once directly to a specific request from the child (for example, to satisfy the request for a newsletter subscription), not using that information to re-contact the child or teen for any other purpose.
