Kids and Internet Safety
We at Wonkybot Studios understand that the Internet presents an opportunity for us to reach the public in new and exciting ways with information about our programming, fun games, exciting sweepstakes and contests, e-mail, chat rooms, bulletin boards, and other forms of interactivity. Wonkybot Studios also recognizes the privacy concerns of parents, and the importance of protecting the privacy of the information we collect from children on our Web sites. Parents of children can be confident that any personal information that may be provided to our Web sites will be collected and maintained in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). Wonkybot Studios encourages parents to supervise their children’s activities online and to participate with their children’s online activities whenever possible. However, we understand that parents may not always be able to supervise their children’s activities on the Internet. That’s why Wonkybot Studios has developed Web sites that parents can feel are safe for their children and kids will find cool, informative, educational, and fun! Because there’s always room for improvement, Wonkybot Studios welcomes any suggestions on how to make the Site a better, safer place to hang out.
Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Information From Children Under 13
When a visitor to one of our children’s Web sites is under the age of 13, Wonkybot Studios does not require the disclosure of more personally identifiable information (“PII”) than is reasonably necessary for him or her to participate in an activity as a condition of such participation. Wonkybot Studios may use different types of PII submitted to our Web sites by children under 13 in a variety of ways, which are described below. In each instance, we comply with the parental consent requirements of COPPA.
1 Use of a Child’s Information by Wonkybot Studios
◦ We may collect a child’s e-mail address in connection with a contest, sweepstakes or game for the sole purpose of communicating with the child on a one-time-only basis (i.e., to contact a contest winner). This information will not be used to re-contact the child, and will be deleted from our records when the contest or game is over. Parental consent will be obtained before we send the winner a prize.
◦ We may collect a child’s name and e-mail address to the extent reasonably necessary to protect the security of this Site, to protect against liability or as required or permitted by law. Information collected for these reasons will not be used for any other purpose.
2 Sharing Children’s Personal Information With Third Parties.
Wonkybot Studios may share a child’s PII with other News America Group. affiliates who may send you information about their products or services. These third parties have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of the personal information they obtain from Wonkybot Studios. As noted above, parents may exercise their option not to consent to the disclosure of their child’s PII to third parties. Parents may consent to Wonkybot Studios collection and use of a child’s PII without consenting to the disclosure of the information to third parties.
Reviewing and Making Changes to Personally Identifiable Information Collected From Children Under 13
Parents of children under age 13 may revoke their child’s membership in any of our Member Programs and otherwise review or delete personal information about their children from our records at any time.

If you would like to know whether we have collected personal information about your child, please provide us with the activities that he or she participated in one of our Web sites which requested personal information. After reviewing the relevant databases, we will confirm whether we have collected such information about your child.
Prior to disclosing the information we have collected, revoking a child’s membership in a program or changing or deleting personal information collected, we require that you provide us with proof of your name and address, such as a valid driver’s license, and proof that your child resides with you or is otherwise in your custody. Once we have determined such information is satisfactory, we will immediately disclose the information requested and revoke your child’s membership and/or delete or modify your child’s information in our database and/or refrain from collecting any other personally identifiable information from your child in the future, if you so request. However, there may be residual information that will remain within our databases that may or may not contain personally identifiable information. This residual information will not be given to any other third party or used for any commercial purpose.
