We care about the privacy of children. We recognize that children’s use of the Internet and email raises special concerns regarding the privacy and security of personal data.
We encourage all parents to check and monitor their children’s online activities.
Applicable law may give parents the right to review, correct, update, suppress, restrict and/or delete personal data we have collected from their children, or to refuse to permit further collection, use or disclosure of such data. If you would like to do so, you may contact us as set forth below under “Contacting Us.”
Your child can enjoy most of the content and activities in our children’s areas without providing any personal data to us. For example, https://www.colgate.com/en-us/products/kids provides information about Colgate kids’ products, as well as educational videos that help kids to develop healthy habits. In addition, https://www.colgate.com/en-us/bright-smiles-bright-futures provides oral educational materials designed for teachers, parents and kids, and has fun activities for kids.
We sometimes solicit or accept submissions from children, such as artwork entered in a contest, some of which may be posted on our sites. Such submissions may be made offline as well as online. If a child or parent wants us to post a photograph or any other personal data of a child, we require a signed parental permission and release form. When children make submissions to us offline, such as by regular mail, we may retain all of the information they submit to us. Unless we receive a signed parental permission form, we screen all offline submissions before they are posted, and strip out any personal data they may contain prior to posting them.
For your child’s enjoyment, we may link to other sites. We are not responsible for those other sites, and we advise you to check their privacy policies as well.
