KidsBibleinfo.com Privacy Policy

Your privacy as well as that of your child is important to us at KidsBibleinfo.com. As a user of our website, they will learn about the Bible perhaps for themselves, perhaps on behalf of someone else. At KidsBibleinfo.com, we understand that their spiritual life is a personal and private subject, and we want you to feel as comfortable as possible with your child visiting our website and using its services. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we strive to safeguard the privacy of children who visit our KidsBibleinfo.com.  Personal information is defined under COPPA as “individually identifiable information,” information that helps others to identify a particular person. This Privacy Policy will tell you what information we collect, how we protect it and what choices you have about how that information is used. We urge you to read our Privacy Policy so that you will understand both our commitment to you and your child’s privacy, and how you can participate in that commitment. We hope that reading them gives you a clear idea of how we manage information regarding your child.

Please remember that if a user links to a third party site from KidsBibleinfo.com, any information revealed on that site is not subject to this Privacy Policy. You should consult the privacy policies of each site visited.

Personal Information We Collect and How it is Used

Visitors to our Web site under age 13 are free to access the various features our site offers without disclosing any personal information.  KidsBibleinfo.com, under its flagship ministry the Voice of Prophecy, collects information in the following ways
  1. In order to answer questions, KidsBibleinfo asks kids to create a username to ask a question and receive an answer. Kids are urged to avoid disclosing personal identifiable information that is not reasonably necessary to obtain the service needed from KidsBibleinfo.com. Measures are taken to help prevent such disclosure. Before kids can create a username, kids are prompted with terms and conditions, including not revealing personal identifiable information (full name, home address, phone number, email, etc.). Additionally, all information a child submits in questions and prayer requests are monitored and reviewed, and stripped of personal identifiable information before being sent to be answered KidsBibleinfo Volunteers.
  2.  

  3. KidsBibleinfo.com also offers free KidZone Bible guides, for which the information required is the parent’s email address. Parents will receive an email notifying of their child’s desire to receive the guides, with a copy of KidsBibleinfo.com’s privacy policy. Parents are then asked to provide their mailing information, should they approve of their child’s receiving of KidZone Bible guides.
  4.  

  5. Through our "Feedback" page, we ask for a name and corresponding email address in order to reply to inquiries and suggestions. Such contact is on a one-time basis, and after response to the child, the child’s name and email address, as well as the content of the message, are deleted.
  6.  

  7. We also collect non-personally identifiable information through the use of Cookies. "Cookies" are small computer files that we transfer to the computer's hard drive which allow us to know how often someone visits our site and the activities they conduct while on our site (such as the different pages you visited, etc.). Cookies also allow us to statistically monitor how many people are using our site and for what purpose which helps us to continue to develop a better site, based on our visitors interests.
  8.  

  9. Kidsbibleinfo.com also accesses information through IP addresses. An IP address is something that is unique to your computer, and is used to identify and collect broad demographic information (like age, gender, regional information and generic interests). As a safe website for kids, tools such as these are used positively and in the sole interest of protecting the privacy and safety of all kids online. For example, a particular IP address can be permanently blocked and denied future access to the website from that IP address if found to be causing problems or a threat.
  10.  

  11. Any letters from children published in on our web site or in our publications will not include any personal identifying information.  
Children who contact our Web site will not receive product solicitations or be subject to other unsolicited contacts, whether through advertising or by any other means.

How KidsBibleinfo.com Handles Privacy Internally

KidsBibleinfo.com wants your personal information to remain as secure as reasonably possible.

When a child submits a question and/or prayer request, they will be sent an answer from a KidsBibleinfo.com Volunteer. After the child reads the answer, the username, question and/or prayer request, and answer are deleted from the server. If an answer is unread by the child, it will remain in the server for up to 30 days. However, after 30 days, the username, question and/or prayer request, and answer, will be deleted.

When a child requests KidZone Bible guides, and a parent approves by submitting their mailing information, the information is directed to the Voice of Prophecy, which provides the KidZone Bible guides. The information is solely used for the purpose of fulfilling the request. At any time, the parent may request from the Voice of Prophecy to stop sending KidZone guides and to remove their personal information from their systems.

To help protect a child’s personal information, we have a two-tier system at KidsBibleinfo.com that combines leading technical safeguards and a code of conduct for those employees that are permitted to access our customers' personal information. On the technical side, KidsBibleinfo.com uses all means available to help ensure the integrity and privacy of the information you provide to us via the Internet. Questions, prayer requests, and answers are kept separately on a server. KidsBibleinfo.com Volunteers who respond to the questions and prayer requests do not have access to this server. Only authorized KidsBibleinfo.com employees are permitted to access that information. All employees must abide by our Privacy Policy and those who violate our Privacy Policy are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.

Disclosure of Your Information

Kids are urged to avoid disclosing personal identifiable information when asking questions or requesting prayer. All information submitted and included in questions and prayer requests are monitored and reviewed before being sent on to KidsBibleinfo.com volunteers to answer. Personal identifiable information that is not necessary in the Bible question or prayer request will be stripped to help protect participants.

KidsBibleinfo.com, under the Voice of Prophecy will not disclose to any third parties any personal identifiable information it gathers from your child, which could be used to identify or contact him/her. KidsBibleinfo.com does not rent, sell, or share personal information about kids with other people or non-affiliated companies except to provide products or services requested, when we have the parent’s permission, or under the following circumstances:

Parents or legal guardians can review their kid's personal information once we receive verifiable identification. Verifiable consent can be given by one of the following methods: following the link provided in the confirmation email, provide a signed form via postal mail or facsimile or even giving us a call. Upon request, parents or guardians may delete or prohibit the further collection of their child's personal information by contacting us at info@bibleinfo.com and clearly stating the nature of their inquiry. Parents or guardians who do not want our website to have any further contact with their children are encouraged to provide us with their own contact information.  If the child contacts us, this will enable our Web site to contact the parent or legal guardian to inform them of the contact.  Parents or legal guardians will then be able to talk to the child who might otherwise be expecting a response from us.

 

Updating Personal Identifiable Information and Contacting KidsBibleinfo.com

We will always strive to make the changing of personal options as easy as possible. KidsBibleinfo.com may change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting revisions to our website. Your child’s use of the site constitutes acceptance of the provisions of this Privacy Policy and your child’s continued usage after such changes are posted constitutes acceptance of each revised Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy or any revised policy, please exit the site immediately.
