- KIDS AND INTERNET SAFETY:
Fox Filmed Entertainment ("Fox FE") is part of the News America Group, which has adopted a set of Privacy Principles applicable to all its U.S.-based companies. Fox FE has
located in the U.S.
We at Fox FE understand that the Internet presents an opportunity for us to reach the public in new and exciting ways with information about our programming, fun games, exciting
sweepstakes and contests, email, chat rooms, bulletin boards and other forms of interactivity. Fox FE also recognizes the privacy concerns of parents, and the importance of
protecting the privacy of the information collected from children at the Foxmovies.com website ("Site"). Parents of children who visit this Site can be confident that any personal
information that may be provided to this Site will be collected and maintained in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). Fox FE encourages parents
to supervise their children's activities online and to participate with their children's online activities whenever possible. However, we understand that parents may not always be
able to supervise their children's activities on the Internet. That's why Fox FE has developed a Site that parents can feel is safe for their children and kids will find
informative, educational and fun! Because there's always room for improvement, Fox FE welcomes any suggestions on how to make the Site a better, safer place to visit.
- COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION ("PII") FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13:
When a visitor to our Site is under the age of 13, Fox FE does not require the disclosure of more PII than is reasonably necessary for him or her to participate in an activity as a
condition of such participation.
Fox FE may use different types of PII submitted to this Site by children under 13 in a variety of ways, which are described below. In each instance, we comply with the parental
consent requirements of COPPA.
(a) Use of a Child's Information by Fox FE:
(i) We may collect a child's email address in connection with a contest, sweepstakes or game for the sole purpose of communicating with the child on a one-time-only basis (i.e.,
to contact a sweepstakes winner). This information will not be used to re-contact the child, and will be deleted from our records when the contest or game is over. Parental
consent is obtained before we send the winner a prize.
(ii) We may collect a child's email address in order to respond more than once to a child's specific request. For example, the child may want to subscribe to an online
newsletter or receive other online communications from Fox FE. In these instances Fox FE will also obtain a parent's email address along with the child's. Before any further
contact with the child, Fox FE will send an email to the parent (A) notifying him or her we have collected the child's email address in order to respond more than once to the
child's request for a subscription, information, etc.; (B) informing the parent that he or she can refuse us permission to contact the child, and how to do so; and (C) informing
the parent that if he or she does not respond to the email within one (1) week, Fox FE may use the child's information for the purpose for which it was submitted. Under no
circumstances will the child be allowed to participate without giving a parent's email address.
(iii) We may collect a child's PII (including name, email address, mailing address and phone number) for such activities as chats, forums, surveys, games, bulletin boards,
requests for suggestions, subscription registrations, content submissions, requests for products or services, or requests for additional information. In these instances we will
initially collect only the child's name and online contact information and the email address of the child's parent. Before using this information for any purpose, we will send the
parent an email that (A) informs the parent that we wish to collect and use the child's PII and need the parent's consent to do so, and (B) provides the parent with a link to
receipt of the email consent, we will send the parent a confirming email. Fox FE will only use the child's PII for internal purposes and will not share it with any third party.
(iv) We may collect a child's name and email address to the extent reasonably necessary to protect the security of this Site, to protect against liability or as required or
permitted by law. Information collected for these reasons will not be used for any other purpose.
(b) Sharing Children's Personal Information with Third Parties: Parents must affirmatively consent to the disclosure of their child's PII to any third party, including
Fox-affiliated companies that are not part of Fox FE. Parents may consent to Fox FE's collection and use of a child's PII without consenting to the disclosure of the information
to third parties.
- LINKS/CO-BRANDED SITES:
This Site may link directly to sites operated by Fox FE's advertisers, business partners and affiliated companies. Those sites, which are not controlled by Fox FE, may collect PII
information obtained by another site from a child under the age of 13 unless that site follows the requirements of COPPA.
- REVIEWING AND MAKING CHANGES TO PII COLLECTED FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13:
Parents of children under age 13 may review or delete personal information about their children from our records at any time. If you would like your child's personal information deleted, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will delete your child's information from our database if you so request.
