“CARU Kids Policy”
Last updated: 2021
a. Children Under Age 13
Danone North America does not knowingly collect personal information from visitors under the age of 13, except as otherwise set forth below. Most of our Danone North America Properties are general audience websites or digital properties directed towards general audiences. For those sites that may be directed at children under 13, we do not knowingly collect personal information without parental consent. If parental consent is not obtained within a reasonable time, any parental contact information collected by Danone North America for such verification purposes will be deleted. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you are a parent concerned that your child may have provided personal information to us, please contact us in the manner described in the “Contact Us” section below.
From time to time, Danone North America may knowingly collect personal information including name, email address, postal address, and a parent or guardian’s email address from children through a Danone North America Property. We may use this information for purposes such as the facilitation of children’s promotion, sweepstakes and/or contest. To assist us with the purpose(s) set forth above, we may share this personal information with third parties who are bound by restrictions of use and confidentiality obligations. These third parties may only use this information as mandated by Danone North America, and may not make any independent use of this information. Danone North America and the third parties described herein will use this information only as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected, and upon such fulfillment of purpose, will delete the information using reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to, or use of, the information in connection with its deletion.
As a parent or guardian of a child, you may request to review, and modify or have deleted, any personal information we have collected from your child, and refuse to permit further collection or use by us of your child’s information. You may make such requests by contacting us in any of the ways listed below in the “Contact Us” section.
As part of the CARU Safe Harbor, we are subject to audits and frequent monitoring of our websites and other enforcement and accountability mechanisms administered independently by CARU.
If you believe that we have not responded to your inquiry or your inquiry has not been satisfactorily addressed, please contact CARU at:
