YuvaInk encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the interactive activities offered on the sites. YuvaInk encourages parents and guardians to advise their children not to talk to strangers, and to teach children not to give out their names or other personal information. Parents and guardians should also teach their children never to fill out online registration forms without the parent’s or guardian’s knowledge and consent. No information should be submitted to or posted at the YuvaInk web sites by children without the consent of their parent or guardian. In addition, when a child registers, his/her parent or guardian receives an e-mail about Registration and providing instructions on how the parent or guardian can delete the Registration if so desired.
Although children are allowed to participate in contests, if such a guest wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parents or guardians identified in the initial Registration process. YuvaInk does not knowingly collect or use any personal information from children under age 13 without obtaining express parental consent.
