Snowmonsters.com believes in the power of kids and we urge both them 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. Snowmonsters.com is committed to complying fully with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. Our information collection practices are described below. We urge kids 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.
What Information Is Collected?
At Snowmonsters.com, it is our policy to create website content that requires minimum collection of information from our visitors. Generally, Snowmonsters.com limits our collection of information from kids to what is known as non-personally identifiable information (i.e. screen name, birthday, gender, zip code and country of residence). This information is collected so kids can participate in activities, chat with celebrities, and post messages, without giving unnecessary personal information. However, there are areas of Snowmonsters.com where some personally identifiable information is asked for and collected (e.i. online contests, etc.). We request only the information that is required to ensure that kids can effectively join in our activities and do not condition a child's participation in an online activity on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary. Snowmonsters.com also never sells, markets, trades or otherwise shares personally identifiable information with any third party. If there is any change in this policy in the future, Snowmonsters.com will notify a child's parent to get his or her consent. Parents have the right to consent to the collection and use of their child's personal information without consenting to the disclosure of that information to third parties.
Snowmonsters.com may occasionally sponsor contests, which may be entered online. To enter a contest, a child is not asked for personally identifiable information (address, phone #, etc.) unless they are selected as a winner. In such case the child must provide his or her first name and email address and the email address of his or her parent. We then send the child's parent an email within two business days informing him or her of the child's winning entry and give the parent the option to have their child's entry deleted. If the parent agrees to the awarding of the prize, they will have the option of emailing or phoning Snow Monsters so that staff from Snowmonsters.com can collect the appropriate delivery information from the parent as well as ensure that the parent has actually consented to their child’s participation. Prizes are mailed to parents and not to children. All such information collected by Snowmonsters.com is securely maintained and used only for the purpose of awarding contest prizes. Once the contest is finished, we then delete any personal information collected unless agreed otherwise in writing by the parent.
Snowmonsters.com gives kids the option to send "electronic postcards" with pictures of Snow Monster characters and safety messages to their friends. We ask them to submit their friends' email addresses, their own email address, and their first name. Snowmonsters.com only uses this information to send the postcard and does not include the sender's email address in the postcard.

At Snowmonsters.com , 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 print out and mail or fax us a signed form that allows them to have this information deleted, and/or request that there be no further collection or use of their child's information.
