The newspaper is committed to complying with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. The Sun Chronicle does not knowingly collect, either online or offline, personal information from persons under the age of thirteen. If you are under 18, you may use www.thesunchronicle.com only with permission of a parent or guardian. The newspaper does not ask children to disclose more personal information than is necessary for them to participate in a particular activity. We urge children to check with their parents before entering information on any website and we urge parents to discuss with their children restrictions regarding the online release of personal information to anyone they don't know.
The Newspaper in Education program is a free service the newspaper may offer for teachers which promotes the use of newspapers in the classroom. The information requested on these pages is used solely for participation in the particular activity, and is not stored or sold to third parties. If a question, comment, story, joke, idea or opinion is published, only the student's first name, grade and state/country appear on the site. Students are advised to consult with their parents before giving personal information online.
The newspaper limits its collection of information from children to what is known as nonpersonally identifiable information (e.g. screen names, birthday, gender, city, state, zip code and country of residence). This information is collected so children can participate in activities (e.g. completing polls or online surveys, posting jokes, book reviews, movie reviews, toy reviews, video reviews, concert reviews, game reviews, artwork or questions/comments online, or playing online games) without giving unnecessary personal information. From time to time, however, we may request limited personally identifiable information (e.g. child's email address and/or parent's or guardian's email address), as explained below, in order to conduct online contests or sweepstakes or offer other online activities. The newspaper cannot and does not condition a child's participation in any of our online activities on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. Information is collected actively, such as through registration forms, and passively, such as through cookies. The newspaper occasionally offers contest and sweepstakes, which may be entered online. Children under 13 may not participate in any online contest offered by The Sun Chronicle.
The newspaper may disclose information maintained as required by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. The newspaper may also disclose such information in response to a specific law enforcement agency's request.
Parents, please send a letter or email to our Privacy Coordinator at the mailing address provided below if you would like to do any of the following:
- Access personally identifiable information that The Sun Chronicle has collected online from your child,
- Correct factual errors in such information,
- Request to have this information deleted, or
- Request that we no longer collect or maintain such information.
Please include your mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number where we can reach you. The Sun Chronicle 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.
