Children's Privacy

USA Girl Scouts Overseas – Singapore is committed to providing a safe, secure, and fun online experience for children who visit our site. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personally identifiable information collected online and to helping parents and children have positive experiences on the Internet.

 

We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. With parental consent, we may collect information from children under the age of 13 such as name, address, email address, account information, and user-generated content. This information allows us to fulfil a requested transaction and facilitate participation in online programs, keep records, undertake certain marketing activities (only in accordance with applicable law and any required consents), or to otherwise customize or enhance the website experience for children.

 

Children under the age of 13 may be able to make certain content such as user-generated content visible to others or the public. This could include, for example, a webpage or parts of web pages operated by children that have been designed for group or public viewing. However, absent parental consent, children under 13 would be allowed to display only limited information such as a first name or unique user name or other information that does not allow for online contact by third parties.

 

Regardless of what information is displayed, parents can revoke their consent and ask that information about their children be deleted from the site by contacting us via e-mail at info@singaporeusagirlscouts.org. To do this or to review personally identifiable information collected from children, we must verify the identity of the requesting parent. When a parent revokes consent, we will stop collecting, using, or disclosing information from that child. To respect the privacy of parents, information collected and used for the sole purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notice is not maintained in retrievable form by the site if parental consent is not obtained after a reasonable time.

 

The information collected from or about children under the age of 13 or otherwise may be collected by or shared with the child's Girl Scout Council and troop.
