The City of Nanaimo is strongly committed to protecting children's online privacy. As such, we have implemented the following special policies to protect the privacy of visitors who are under 13 years of age:
No personally identifiable information (online or offline) is knowingly requested of visitors under 13 years of age;
Visitors under 13 years of age may not register for services provided by the City of Nanaimo Web site on their own;
No personal information concerning visitors under 13 years of age will knowingly be shared with third parties;
The City of Nanaimo Web site will not give children the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information.
The City of Nanaimo does not currently have services for children under 13 years of age. If a child wants to use our services, the children's parent or guardian must register for our services and participate with the child.
The City of Nanaimo recognizes that young people need special safeguards and privacy protection. We understand that they may not understand all the provisions of our policy or be able to make thoughtful decisions about the choices that are made available to our adult users. We urge all parents to participate in their children's exploration of the Internet and any online services, and to teach their children about the importance of protecting their personal information while online. – less–ZoomInfo
