Does The Accelepedia
Collect Any Personal Information About Me if I'm 13 or older?
The Accelepedia doesn't require
anyone to share any personal information about themselves in order to
enjoy the site. That means you can visit the site without any need to
register with us. However, this site does contain a Message Board with
privileges for members that register. We do not collect any personal
information from you or your teenager unless it is voluntarily provided.
The personal information we ask for is an e-mail address. See below for
how we use this information.
Does The Accelepedia
Collect Any Personal Information About Anyone Under 13?
We do not collect personal
information online from children under 13 without consent of a parent or
legal guardian. If your child is under 13 and wants to participate in
the Message Board we will ask your child to “register.” They can do so
anonymously by just providing a user name and password. If a child under
13 signs up for the Message Board, we will notify you via the provided
e-mail address and give you an opportunity to opt out.
If you no longer wish your child to
participate in The Message Board, contact us at this link:
http://www.accelepedia.com/contact_me/. Upon proper identification,
parents or legal guardians may review the personal information we have
collected about their child, request deletion, or refuse to allow
further collection or use of the information. However, if you ask us to
delete your child's information, we may have to ask your child not to
participate in our activities.
