1. What Personal Information Does CapEd Collect?

For the purposes of participating in contests or other activities sponsored by CapEd and directed toward children under age 13, we may collect a child's first and last name, telephone number, email address, home address, a screen name or username where it functions in the same manner as online contact information, age or date of birth, school name, grade level, and video with images and voice. CapEd will not collect more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in CapEd activities.

2. How Does CapEd Collect Personal Information?

CapEd collects information that is actively given by the child when completing an online entry form, submission form, or other type of form on our website, in order to participate in contests or activities. CapEd may also collect information using website cookies, JavaScript, and other similar technologies.

3. How Does CapEd Use the Personal Information We Collect?

CapEd uses the information to identify the child, to communicate to the child about contest or other event entries, to place the child in the appropriate age group or grade level for contests and activities, and to notify contest winners. The information may also be shared at public movie theaters (for example, special viewings of submitted videos for which a parent or guardian has consented) or via social media channels including, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn, but only with parental or guardian consent. CapEd DOES NOT use the information we collect to market directly to the child, or for any other purpose other than contests and other activities sponsored by CapEd. CapEd does not enable children to make personal information publicly available.

4. Does CapEd Share Personal Information We Collect with Third Parties?

The information CapEd collects is never sold, disclosed or shared with any third party. It is used solely for contests and other activities sponsored by CapEd.

CapEd uses state-of-the art technology to protect the personal information we collect. CapEd has also established reasonable procedures to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of personal information collected from children. Please note that no data transmission or storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We want you to feel confident using CapEd's website, but we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you or your child transmits to us. In addition, we will not retain the information collected from a child for only as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the information was collected. After that, the information is deleted.

Parent/Guardian Right to Review or Have Child's Personal Information Deleted

A parent or guardian can review or have the child's personal information deleted and refuse to permit further collection or use of the child's information.
