In keeping with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) ‒ the law that protects children’s online privacy ‒ and the guidelines of the Children’s Advertising Review Unit of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Steve & Kate’s Camp limits the collection of personal information from children. We do not collect personal information from children from our Website. Children participating in our various Studio programs in the preseason at promotional events (including at schools and camp fairs), and during the summer at our Camps, however, may upload projects they have created in these programs (using an app on an iPad) to your (their parent’s) email address via a secure link accessible from your email or your personal account with Steve & Kate’s Camp for your own viewing, and these projects could contain personal information of your child (e.g., image or voice). Additionally, these projects could be shared with other children, parents/guardians of other children, staff members, and third party contractors of Steve & Kate’s Camp as well as with third parties who may receive your child’s information from other parents/guardians whose children collaborate, participate, or were included on projects with your child. Because of this, prior to saving media at one of our preseason promotional events and/or during our registration process for camp, we ask for your consent in order for your child to participate in the Studio programs. Consent forms (print or electronic) will be provided to you prior to or at such events. We also ask that you agree to indemnify Steve & Kate’s Camp, together with all its affiliates, employees, and directors, from and against any claims or losses arising from or related to any action by you in sharing any child’s information to any third party. If you decline to agree to the terms mentioned above, then your child will not be able to participate in any preseason promotional events or register for Steve & Kate’s Camp.

Parental Notice Regarding the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)Under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), we must provide you with direct notice before collecting “personal information” from your child. Effective July 1, 2013, the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) updated COPPA to reflect changes in technology, and now considers a photograph, video, or audio file containing a child’s image or voice to be a child’s “personal information.” For more information about COPPA, please visit www.coppa.org.
Nonetheless, because the projects created by your child or other children may contain your child’s image or voice, and may be uploaded by your child or other children (rather than you) to our secured servers and shared to your email address or to your account and/or the email address or account of any other parents/guardians whose children collaborated, participated, or were included on the project the FTC may classify this as “collecting” and “disclosing” your child’s personal information. This is the only “personal information” that we may collect from your child for such purpose. It will not be used by us for any other purpose, disclosed, or combined with any other information from your child.
Your consent is required for the collection, use, or disclosure of your child’s information as may appear in a photo, video, audio, or software application project(s) that your child creates, collaborates on, participates in, or was included in as part of the Studio programs.
