Mines does not direct services to, and does not knowingly collect or solicit聽personal data directly from children under the age of 13.听Some Mines鈥 webpages present information about activities that are specifically聽designed for children. However, these webpages are intended to be used only聽by adults to voluntarily share information online, so that a child who is under the聽age of 13 can participate in these activities (e.g., summer camps, classes,聽programs) or so that the adult and/or child can receive information mailed or聽emailed from Mines (newsletters, class schedules, recruitment information).听When a parent or legal guardian voluntarily signs their child up for one of these聽programs, the parent or legal guardian may be asked to provide:

  • The child’s full name
  • Full home mailing address
  • Phone number
  • Birth date
  • School, current grade level
  • Email address
  • Parent or legal guardian’s name and email address

The parent or legal guardian supplying the child’s information will be asked to acknowledge that they are, in fact, the parent or guardian who is legally authorized to disclose this information about the child. Any information provided by a parent or legal guardian about their child will not be transferred, disclosed or shared with a third party and will not be used for other purposes.

Parents or legal guardians have the right:

  • To review personal data that has been recorded by a Mines website about聽their child,
  • To refuse to allow further collection of information about their child,
  • To be given the choice of consenting to the collection and internal use of聽their child鈥檚 personal data, and
  • To require the deletion of any of their child鈥檚 personal data that has been聽recorded.听
