Privacy of Minors
FamZoo complies with the "Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998". Since the FamZoo Services are intended to be used by all members of your family, FamZoo may collect Personally Identifiable Information about children who are under 13 years old ("Minors"). However, FamZoo does not intentionally collect such Personal Identifiable Information from Minors, but from Users of sufficient legal age that are authorized to provide such information about the
respective Minors. As such, you (as the parent or guardian) should sit down with your Minor to help in choosing and to
enter such password. By using the FamZoo Services as a parent or guardian, you represent and warrant that you have
sufficient legal authority to act on behalf of and represent any Minor you may add to the Account and you hereby expressly consent to the collection of information about these Minors as described herein. There are FamZoo features, e.g., "Checklists", which allow Minors to enter free form information. As a parent or guardian, you consent to FamZoo gathering such free form information,
knowing that the Minor may inadvertently include Personal Information. Parents/guardians will be able to see what information about their Minors is stored by the Services in the respective Family Member Account (with the exception of passwords, which will not be displayed) and will be able to delete and/or modify such information at any time (including passwords).
Security and Confidentiality
FamZoo has put in place commercially reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, no company, including FamZoo, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information.
