Rainbow asks the parents or guardians of children to monitor them while they are on-line, and to participate in the interactive activities offered on the site. When a young person asks to be registered, we ask him/her to insert his/her parents’ mailing address and we forward them a message asking for their agreement to registration and to the use of the personal data we will receive. The parents themselves, by replying to our request, will limit the range of the consented use.
No information will be used or sent to Rainbow or to affiliated companies without the parents’/legal guardian’s agreement. No personal data will be used for promotional or marketing purposes by Rainbow or by affiliated companies without the explicit agreement of the parents/legal guardian.
If a visitor wishes to receive information on the site’s updates, activities or news connected to Rainbow or the affiliated companies, we will only provide this information if the parent/legal guardian authorizes us when giving consent.
Before registering the visitor, if the visitor is under 18, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the visitor’s parents or guardian, thus any under-18 visitors who wish to register will have to supply their parents’ mailing address. Once consent is obtained and the registration has been effected, this mailing address will be used to send the parents copies of communications made from time to time to the registered users. If the parents decide not to give their consent they will have to reply to the above.
If you are under 18, you may only participate with your parents’/legal guardian’s consent. If you win, you will be informed by telephone or e-mail. The prizes will be sent to the user’s parents/legal guardian.
