8. How We Respond to “Do Not Track Signals”
Some browsers have an optional Do Not Track (“DNT”) feature that allows you to express your preference regarding tracking of your online activity by websites. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, ad networks, plug-in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity via cookies or other tracking technologies. Our Site does not currently respond to DNT browser signals or mechanisms.
8. Children’s Policy
Rack Room Shoes is dedicated to protecting the privacy of all of its customers, especially children under the age of 13. Additionally, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that we inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose Personal Information from children under the age of 13. COPPA also requires that we obtain the consent of parents and guardians in order for children under the age of 13 to provide certain information to us.
The following is an explanation of our policies regarding collection of information from children under the age of 13. The term “child” or “children” below refers to such children under the age of 13 and the term “parent” below includes legal guardians.
(b) Use of the Information and Disclosure to Third Parties. If a child registers for a sweepstakes or other promotion, we use the parent’s e-mail address to notify the parent of the child’s registration request and obtain parental consent (see below). All other Personal Information collected from the child will be used for the express purpose of operating the sweepstakes or promotion only, which may include notification to the child regarding rules and results of the sweepstakes and/or e-mail messages to the child regarding in-store or online promotions. In connection with such use only, we may share the child's Personal Information with our website hosting partners and certain third-party marketing services firms, as necessary. These parties have agreed to maintain the privacy and security of the Personal Information. In addition, we may share a child’s Personal Information with third parties to the extent reasonably necessary to: protect the security of integrity of our sites; to take precautions against liability; to respond to judicial process; or to the extent permitted under provisions of law, to provide information to law enforcement agencies or for an investigation related to public safety. Except for the limited disclosures described in this paragraph, we will not make any public disclosure (on our website or a chat page, for example) of any Personal Information provided to us by a child. As provided in the “How We Use Information” and “How We Share Information” sections above, we do not sell any Personal Information concerning our users. Presently, no child's personal information is disclosed to third parties.
(c) Parental Consent. If Rack Room Shoes has actual knowledge that any child under the age of 13 has attempted to provide any Personal Information, we will send an e-mail to the parental e-mail address provided to us, and allow the parent to verify the child’s submission (and our subsequent collection and use for a stated purpose) of Personal Information. If the parent does not consent to allow the child's submission (and our subsequent collection and use for a stated purpose), we will promptly delete the child's information from our database. If for any reason, the e-mail sent to the parental e-mail address is undeliverable or we receive no response after a reasonable period of time, we will delete the child’s submission as if the parent refused the child’s submission. In the event a child wins a sweepstakes or contest, and we want to publicize the name (and/or other Personal Information) of such child, we will again notify the parent at the parent's e-mail address and request that the parent provide his or her name and address for delivery of the applicable release and consent form. We will not publish or release the name or other Personal Information of any child as a winner of any contest without the express written consent of the child's parent.
(d) Review and Deletion of Information. A parent can contact our customer service department at any time to review, change, or delete the Personal Information that we have collected from his or her child, or direct Rack Room Shoes not to collect any further information about their child. A parent may also expressly request that a child's information not be shared with those limited third-parties with which we may share information, as necessary (and except as may be required pursuant to applicable laws), pursuant to (b) above.
