7.0. Collection and Use of Information from Children Under the Age of 18

7.1  Collection of Personally Identifiable Information Collected from participants under 18

When a student under the age of eighteen (18) registers for an account they will be asked to provide the email address of their parent/guardian. The parent/guardian will receive an email with on-screen directions to complete the online Parental Consent Form (“Consent Form”) and submit it so that it is received, in accordance with the directions found in the form. The parent/guardian will be asked to confirm their child’s name and email address during the completion of the Consent Form. All students under the age of eighteen (18) must receive parental/guardian consent otherwise, the auditions they are a part of will not be judged.

Edge Factor may occasionally request limited personally identifiable information from children in order to offer a service, a promotion or other activity to children. In these instances, Edge Factor will request that the child provide his or her email address, as well as the email address of his or her parent or legal guardian. Edge Factor will use that email address to send the parent an email letting him or her know about the child’s contact. The email will include details on how the parent may (i) provide Edge Factor with consent; (ii) prohibit Edge Factor from any further contact with the child; or (iii) delete the child’s personally identifiable information. Edge Factor will not collect more information than is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in the activity at issue.

7.2 Use of Personally Identifiable Information Collected from participants under 18 years old

When we collect personally identifiable information from participants under 18 years old, we will only use that information for the express purpose for which it was collected. The personally identifiable information will not be used for any other purpose, and the personally identifiable information will not be used after the express purpose is complete. For more details please read section ten of the Official Rules, Restrictions, Rights, and Release.

7.3 Sharing of Personally Identifiable Information Collected from participants under 18 years old

Except as provided in this Section, we do not share personally identifiable information collected from participants under 18 years old with any unaffiliated third parties. We may, however, share a child’s personally identifiable information that we have collected with parental consent in the following limited instances:

We may share such information with third-party service providers who help Edge Factor maintain the Sites and provide other administrative services to us. We seek to ensure that these unaffiliated third parties may not use the personally identifiable information for any other purpose, and these unaffiliated third parties have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of the personally identifiable information.

If a child is selected as a potential winner, we will notify the child’s parent via the email address that the child submitted. If the parent consents, we will collect and share this information in order to fulfill the terms of the promotion.

Finally, we may disclose a child’s personally identifiable information to third parties if we believe we are required to do so in order to comply with law (including court orders and subpoenas); to comply with requests from law enforcement agencies or the government; to enforce our Visitor Agreement; to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property and the rights, privacy, safety or property of our employees or other users of our Sites; to protect our operations; and to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.

We collect and store non-personally identifiable information. We may link this information to personally identifiable information for troubleshooting or internal reporting purposes. We will never however, share links to personally identifiable information to anyone other than a Trusted Partner when it is collected from participants under the age of 18 years old.
