Protection of Children /COPPA

KSC is extremely committed to ensuring the safety and security of any personal information about children that is collected. KSC website users come from a wide variety of backgrounds, with some viewers under the age of fourteen. In order to better protect the personal information of children and comply with the Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we have adopted the following policies in addition to those previously listed.

KSC requires any minor child, wishing to use its site, to obtain parental consent before using the site, registering, subscribing and/or providing any personal information. All information provided during the registration is used according to the terms contained in this Privacy Statement.

Please be advised, KSC does not differentiate between personal information provided by minor children and adults, so parents should read this information carefully when deciding whether to provide consent for their child(ren) to register, subscribe, signup for any service or account.

Prior to registering, subscribing or signing up for any service or account, all minor children are asked to have parental permission. In the event of any doubt over the authenticity of such permission, it may be confirmed by requesting a signed form sent to via KSC via regular US mail or via fax. The only instance where minor children may be asked for, or provide information for, an email address without prior consent from parents is only under the following circumstances:

In order to allow one-time communication with a new User, after which time the email address must be linked to a permitted account.

To protect the security of and/or limit the liability of the site, or in response to law enforcement request.

In the event of the properly permitted registration, signup or subscription of any minor child by a parent, for an account or service, the following types of information may be collected: e-mail address; a corresponding email address/account of the permitting parent; city, state and zip code; birthdate. In addition, a login name, password and security questions may be collected. This information is collected to better protect the child and help determine whether a registrant is a child for whom parental consent is required. KSC only collects personal information from a child that is reasonably necessary to provide the service(s) requested. The uses of that information match those of the uses of an adult registrant's information as stated in this Privacy Policy.

A consenting parent or legal guardian may cancel a child's registration, subscription or account at any time and for any reason.

Links to third party sites and advertisers.

KSC takes every precautionary measure to make certain that advertisers and linked sites do not contain inappropriate or pornographic material. However, we cannot warrant that the linked sites and advertisers' sites will not contain links to any such material, or that such sites will not alter the content from time to time which may include such material. KSC screens all such sites before linking to the site, however, KSC has no way to control the changing content of such sites. In any instance that such sites add any access to such inappropriate or pornographic material, Users are requested to immediately contact KSC for further investigation and possible removal from the KSC site.
