  3. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
    The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and Rule (“COPPA”) protects the Personal Information of children under the age of 13. It applies to individually identifiable information about a child that is collected online by operators of commercial websites, such as full name, home address, email address, telephone number, or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact the child. COPPA also covers other types of information—for example, hobbies, interests, and information collected through cookies or other types of tracking mechanisms—when they are tied to individually identifiable information. ZGiRLS does not operate a commercial website within the meaning of COPPA, but we fully support the goals of the statute. It is important for you to understand COPPA; we encourage you to read more about it at www.ftc.gov.
  4. NOTE TO PARENTS ON OUR PRIVACY POLICY
    ZGiRLS is committed to providing a safe, secure, and fun online experience for everyone who visits our site. We are dedicated to safeguarding any Personal Information collected online and to helping parents and children have positive experiences on the Internet. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request or collect Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. To that end, no one under age 13 may provide any Personal Information to this website unless ZGiRLS has previously received verifiable consent from the child’s parent. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information collected from or about a child under 13 without their parent’s consent, please contact us at info@zgirls.org.

Parents of children under 13 may revoke their consent for ZGiRLS to collect Personal Information from their child, ask that information about their child be deleted from the site, and/or review Personal Information collected from their child by contacting us by email at info@zgirls.org. To comply with these requests, we must verify the identity of the requesting parent. When a parent revokes consent, we will stop collecting, using, or disclosing information from that parent’s child under 13. To respect the privacy of parents, information collected and used for the sole purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notice is not maintained, in retrievable form, by the site if parental consent is not obtained after a reasonable time.

  1. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES, SOCIAL NETWORKS, & SERVICES
    We may link to other websites and services, including social network sites, which are not maintained by ZGiRLS. For example, ZGiRLS uses TeamSnap, a third-party platform, for registration, payment, scheduling, and coordinating some ZGiRLS services, including communication between participants in these services. TeamSnap and other websites linked to by ZGiRLS have their own privacy policies, which you should review prior to using them. We have no responsibility for linked websites, and we provide these links solely for the convenience and information of our visitors.

The social network sites that are linked from our website are not maintained by ZGiRLS. If you choose to interact with us through social media, your interaction with these platforms typically allows the third party to collect some information about you through digital cookies they place on your device and other tracking mechanisms. In some cases, the third party may recognize you through its digital cookies even when you do not interact with their application. Please visit the third parties’ respective privacy policies to better understand their data collection practices and controls they make available to you.

We reserve the right to delete any submissions that engage in unlawful, illegal, unethical, discriminatory, disruptive, threatening, or offensive activity or practice. If any user is found violating local or national Internet laws or policies, the offending user may be removed or blocked from access to the site or sites. Additionally, we may report unlawful, illegal, or threatening activity or practice to law enforcement agencies, as appropriate.

  1. SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We use a combination of physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect the Personal Information we collect.
