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 activities during the preseason at promotional events (including at schools and camp fairs), during the winter, spring and summer at our Camps, and in our online programs, however, may upload projects they have created in these activities (using an app on an iPad) to your (their parent(s)’s/guardian(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., their 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 attend the same online session and/or collaborate on, participate in, or were included in 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 or Online, we ask for your consent in order for your child to participate in the Camp/Online activities. 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 Camps and Steve & Kate Online, together with all their 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 Camps or Steve & Kate Online.

CALIFORNIA ‘DO NOT TRACK’ NOTICE
We may use third-party advertising companies to help tailor site content to users or to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness (such as which web pages are visited or what products are purchased and in what amount). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is not linked to any personal information collected by us.
California law requires us to let you know how we respond to web browser DO NOT TRACK (DNT) signals. Because there currently isn’t an industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals, we don’t respond to them at this time. We await the result of work by the privacy community and industry to determine when such response is appropriate and what form it should take.
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 https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0031-protecting-your-childs-privacy-online.
Nonetheless, because the photo, video or audios files or projects may be created by your child or other children from the Camp, files or projects may contain your child’s image or voice, and may be uploaded by your child or other children from the Camp (rather than by you) to our secured servers and then to your secured account and/or the secured account of any other parents/guardians whose children attended the same online session and/or collaborated, participated, or were included on the project, the FTC may classify this as ‘collecting’ your child’s personal information. This is the only “personal information” that we may collect from your child for such a 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 file or project(s) that your child creates, collaborates on, participates in, or was included in as part of the camp activities. Your consent authorizes the collection, use, or disclosure of your child’s information as may appear in a photo, video, or audio file or project, or software application to campers, parents/guardians of campers, staff members, and third party contractors of the Camp as well as to third parties who may receive your child’s information from other campers or parents/guardians whose children attend the same online session and/or collaborate on, participate in, or were included in projects with your child. We will not collect, use, or disclose any such information from your child if you do not consent. If you do not provide consent to the collection of your child’s personal information as described above, your child will not be able to register for Camp, and we will delete your online contact information from our records if it was provided by your child, and/or will not use your online contact information for the purposes stated in this notice. At any time, you may refuse to permit: 1) your child’s participation in Camp (including online sessions and/or the camp activities); 2) further use of your information or your child’s information by the Camp; or 3) further contact with your child, and request that we delete your information and/or your child’s information. To exercise any of your rights, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, call us at 415-389-5437, or write us at 58 West Portal Ave., PMB #800, San Francisco, CA 94127.
Your privacy and your child’s privacy are important to us. We do not share any of your information or your child’s information with any third party, except in the limited fashion described above whereby your child participated in an online session and/or collaborated on, participated in, or was included in a project.
