Collection of Children’s Information and How We Use It.

We will only collect and use a child’s personal information that is not subject to an exception under COPPA when we have the consent of the child’s parent or guardian.  If we discover that we’ve unintentionally collected personal information from a child in a way that does not meet applicable legal requirements, we will delete the information promptly. This section discusses the types of information we collect directly from children, and the information we collect as children use theServices.  Please note that we do not make a child's participation in the Services contingent on that child's disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the Services.

A. Information we Collect Directly From Children

In order to collect and use a child's personal information, we are required by COPPA to obtain verifiable consent from the child's parent or guardian.  Users must provide their age, and children users must provide the email address of their parent or guardian so that we can seek consent.  We will retain the parent’s email address to send important communications about the Services and the child’s participation in the Services. We may also use the parent’s email address to inform the parent about promotions, sweepstakes, contests, and other marketing activities.

Once consent has been obtained, for the child to set up a shop and participate in the interactive, e-commerce features of the Services, we collect the following information about the child: name, email address, password), and a unique username.  In accordance with applicable legal requirements, we may also collect the child’s or parent’s phone number to communicate about the Services via SMS.

In setting up their shop, children are able to add a cover image, draft text to introduce themselves and their shops to their potential buyers, select the products they want to sell, and provide descriptions of the products that they are selling.  The child can edit this information at anytime. To sell products through the child’s shod to provide e-mail addresses of individuals that the child wants to market his or her shop to, and the child will be able to subsequently update this list from time to time.  Children may also have the ability to interact with other users on the Services to share information about their shop and offer feedback on the products they sell and their shop’s success.  Given the interactive nature of the Services and the various features the child can edit, please review your child’s shop periodically to review this information together with your child. We use the information collected from children to provide the Services, improve the Services, troubleshoot and secure the services, and analyze use of the Services.
