MyEZreg is committed to comply fully with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and believes in the power of kids and we urge both kids and their parents to use and enjoy our website. While we encourage the interactive nature of online media, we strive to educate parents and kids about how to appropriately safeguard their privacy when traveling on the Web. We urge kids to check with their parents before entering information on any website and we urge parents to discuss with their kids restrictions regarding the online release of personal information to anyone they don't know.
What Information Is Collected?
At myEZreg, it's our policy to create website content that requires minimum collection of information from our visitors. Generally, we limit our collection of information from kids to what is known as non-personally identifiable information (e.g. screen name, birthday, gender, state, zip code). This information is collected so kids can participate in activities (e.g. play online games) without giving unnecessary personal information. From time to time, however, we may request limited personally identifiable information (e.g. email address of parent), as explained below, in order to conduct online contests or sweepstakes or offer other online activities (e.g. electronic newsletters). myEZreg does not condition a kid's participation in any of our online activities or the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. As explained below, we may also collect from parents additional types of information (e.g., credit card and billing information) when they purchase products and offerings at our site.
Electronic Newsletter Subscription
myEZreg offers kids the opportunity to sign up to receive the myEZreg newsletter by email. At any time after receiving this notification email, the child's parent has the opportunity to exercise the option to request that we stop sending the child the myEZreg newsletter and have the child's information removed from our myEZreg newsletter by following the "unsubscribe" instructions found at the end of any of the myEZreg newsletter emails. In addition, parents may at any time review any identifiable information collected about their child (see below, Parental Access). All information collected for myEZreg newsletters is used only to send the child the electronic newsletter and may be transferred, disclosed, or shared with third parties who may be engaged by us specifically to handle the preparation and delivery of the electronic newsletter and perform other related technical and processing functions. These third parties may not use it for other purposes and have agreed to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
Contests and Sweepstakes
myEZreg occasionally offers contests and sweepstakes, which may be entered online. Sometimes, when we conduct contests or sweepstakes that may involve more than a one-time contact, we ask additionally for the email address of his or her parent. All the information collected by myEZreg is securely maintained and used only for the purpose of conducting the contest or sweepstakes.
Use of Information
myEZreg uses or may use personally identifiable information that kids provide for such purposes as sending requested electronic postcards and email messages on their behalf, and conducting contests or sweepstakes, and responding to their questions regarding our products and services. myEZreg currently does not disclose to third parties personally identifiable information that kids provide. Additionally, in the event that all or substantially all of the assets relating to myEZreg are transferred or sold to another entity, personally identifiable information submitted to us may be transferred to the acquiring entity. Finally, we may also disclose personally identifiable information to third parties in order to comply with law or requests by law enforcement agencies, to enforce our Terms and Conditions or to protect the rights, property or safety of our website, users of our website and others.

At myEZreg, our goal is to help parents ensure that their kids have a safe and fun online experience. That's why we've set up a system by which parents can call us to request a form that allows them to review any identifiable information collected about their child, have this information deleted, and/or request that there be no further collection or use of their child's information. myEZreg takes steps to verify the identity of anyone requesting information about a child and to ensure that the person is in fact the child's parent or legal guardian.
myEZreg has taken steps to ensure that personally identifiable information collected in the future is secure, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers as well as electronic security systems and password protections which guard against unauthorized access.

We encourage visitors to other websites to review the privacy policies and information collection practices of those websites.
