SENSITIVE PERSONAL INFORMATION
CHILDREN’S INFORMATION – Compliance With Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
We believe it is important to provide added protection for children online. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to observe, participate in and/or monitor and guide their online activity.
Diamond101.com does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian believes that Diamond101.com has in its database the personally-identifiable information of a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our Site from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
