Bear Country Entertainment Privacy Policy and C.O.P.P.A. Compliance Statement

Information you share with us is used for Bear Country Entertainment's (BCE) internal business purposes. BCE is not in the business of selling information about you. This notice tells you what information we collect, steps we take to protect and secure it, how we use and share the information, and finally, how you can access that information or contact us with questions or concerns.

Information We Gather

BCE collects personal information that you provide when you register with us, or use BCE services available on the BCE web site (the "Service"). BCE does not share this information with any other clients, potential clients, or third party companies.

BCE does not collect information about your transactions with us. BCE feels this information needs to be as secure as possible. That's why payments due to us are done through PayPal. This way BCE does not even see your vital information, such as your credit card number.

Special Rules Information Relating to Children

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("C.O.P.P.A.") requires that we inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information from children under 13 years of age.

BCE is not directed at children under 13 years of age but, we recognize that with proper adult supervision some parents might permit their children to visit BCE and view our Service. COPPA requires that we obtain the consent of parents and guardians in order for children under 13 years of age to use certain features of BCE.

When your child attempts to register and/or provide personal information to BCE, we require a parent or legal guardian to:

complete the registration;

review our privacy policy and to submit a valid credit card number to verify that the child's parent or guardian knows about and authorizes our information practices related to children protected by COPPA; and

verify through the use of an email confirmation and second authorization that the parent or guardian consents to the Terms of Service and this privacy policy.

Once parental notice and consent has been verified, the information we collect will be treated the same as information collected from any other user of BCE. Without verified parental notice and consent, we will not knowingly collect personal information relating to children under 13 years of age, and if we learn that we have inadvertently collected such information, we will promptly delete it.

How Parents can Access their Children's Personal Information

In compliance with COPPA, a parent or legal guardian may request from us to review, delete or stop the collection of personally identifiable information relating to their child or any child in their legal custody who is under 13 years of age. You may do so in one of two ways.

If you know the user name and password, follow the instructions below regarding Changing your Preferences and Personal Information, or you may email using the address information provided at the bottom of this page.

If you request that no further information about your child be collected or used, we will be required to terminate your child's ability to use any part of the Service that requires a user to "sign in."
