How We Use and Share Information
Looking out for Children
We do not knowingly market to or solicit information from children under 18 without parental consent. We recognize that protecting children’s identities and privacy online is important, and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents. While LCWCID #1 (Buffalo Springs Lake) works to protect your personal information if it has been submitted to us, you also have responsibility. The internet is a public network. Childrens’ access to the internet can allow them to visit inappropriate websites and be exposed to unwanted risks. COPPA, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, protects children under the age of 13 from online collection of personal information. Parents can be proactive by installing filtering software that gives them more control over their family’s internet experience. We recommend that minors 18 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet. Additionally, we do not knowingly target or re-market to anyone under the age of 18 through preventative measures put in place by third-party social media and advertising partners such as Google and Facebook.
LCWCID #1 (Buffalo Springs Lake) recognizes the importance of ensuring our websites are accessible to those with disabilities.
