Collection of Information, Use of it and Communication with Parents
Children can investigate the site, and can view and print content without giving any individual data other than the automatic collection of device “persistent identifiers,” examined in more detail beneath. Our site just gathers limited individual data if the child registers to become a member or presents a question or request to us.

Username (we advise the child not to use his or her real name);
Birth month and year.
We additionally require the child to give a parent’s email address.

In the event, that you believe your child is taking part in an action that gathers individual data and you or another parent/guardian have NOT consented, or in the event that you no longer wish for your child to take an interest as an individual from the site, please don’t hesitate to reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will erase your child’s record and the parental contact data.
Content Generated by Child

In the event, when an activity asks the child to provide individual data, we will either ask the submitter to delete the information, or we will look for verifiable parental consent by email for collection. If in addition to collecting information that includes personal information, Beta Scholar also plans to post the content publicly or share it with a third party for the third party’s own use, we will obtain a higher level of parental consent.
