In keeping with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) ‒ the law that protects children’s online privacy ‒ and the guidelines of the Children’s Advertising Review Unit of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Wisdom Learning limits the collection of personal information from children. We do not collect personal information from children from our Website. Children participating in our various activities during the preseason at promotional events (including at schools and camp fairs), and during the winter, spring and summer at our Camps, however, may upload projects they have created in these activities (using an app on an iPad) to your (their parent’s) email address via a secure link accessible from your email or your personal account with Wisdom Learning for your own viewing, and these projects could contain personal information of your child (e.g., image or voice.) Additionally, these projects could be shared with other children, parents/guardians of other children, staff members, and third party contractors of Wisdom Learning as well as with third parties who may receive your child’s information from other parents/guardians whose children collaborate, participate, or were included on projects with your child. Because of this, prior to saving media at one of our preseason promotional events and/or during our registration process, we ask for your consent in order for your child to participate in the activities. Consent forms (print or electronic) will be provided to you prior to or at such events. We also ask that you agree to indemnify Wisdom Learning, together with all its affiliates, employees, and directors, from and against any claims or losses arising from or related to any action by you in sharing any child’s information to any third party. If you decline to agree to the terms mentioned above, then your child will not be able to participate in any preseason promotional events or register for Wisdom Learning.
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We get information about you in a range of ways.
Information You Give Us When Registering. If you register your child or children for Wisdom Learning, we collect your name, postal address, email address, phone number, password; and we collect billing information (e.g., credit card number, expiration date, etc.), information regarding your children’s birth date, school and health information, and other information you directly give us on our Website.
If you enter your personal information on our website without completing registration for a camp, we collect the information you enter which could include the items listed above, for the purpose of contacting you to inquire if you wish to complete registration. If you do not respond or if you respond that you do not wish to receive such e-mails, we will not send further communications to you but may store your personal information in an “Unsubscribe” list. For European residents subject to the GDPR, we will delete your information if you do not respond or if you respond that you do not wish to receive such e-mails.
