 Child Privacy Protection:

 

The IEDC believes in the importance of protecting the privacy of children.  The IEDC Websites are not directed to children under age thirteen (13), and the IEDC does not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children.

 

The IEDC encourages parents and teachers to supervise their children’s Internet explorations.  It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are asked to provide any personal information on the Internet.  In the event that children, unbeknownst to the IEDC, provide information through the IEDC’s Websites, the IEDC only uses the information to provide a response to the writer and not to create profiles of children. 

 

The IEDC maintains pages on several social media networking websites, including Facebook and Twitter.  The IEDC encourages parents and teachers to refer to the privacy policies and terms of use that govern the use of these websites.  The IEDC is unable to identify if children voluntarily submit personal information via the IEDC’s social media pages, and the IEDC strongly encourages parents and teachers to monitor the Internet activity of their children.

 

Changes to this Policy

 The IEDC may, from time to time and as it deems necessary in its sole discretion, revise this Privacy Policy.   If the IEDC makes any substantial changes to the policy, the IEDC may provide notice by posting an announcement on the IEDC Website.  This is a statement of policy and should not be interpreted as a contract of any kind.  Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
