2. Special information for PARENTS
Contact us at the e-mail address if you have not accepted this agreement and if your child has become a member of Paperdoll Heaven. We urge all parents to be actively involved in following their children's activity on the Internet.

Paperdoll Heaven is dedicated to protecting the privacy of its members and handling any personal information we obtain from our members with care and respect. The information and the terms in this agreement that we conclude with our members fulfil the high standard of protection provided for in the European Union and in the United States. For citizens in the US the COPPA rules apply to children under the age of 13. From the terms on Personal Data and Privacy Policy below you can see what information we collect from our members, what we do with it and the limited involvement of third parties. An overall principle is that we do not collect more information than is reasonably necessary for children to participate in activities on Paperdoll Heaven.

If your child is of age that access to the Paperdoll Heaven website requires parental consent, the account will automatically be flagged as a pending and we will inform your child that parental consent is required to activate an account. Subject to applicable regulation, your consent is needed as stated in the “Notice to Parents” e-mail. A more detailed description of what registering on Paperdoll Heaven means can be found in the e-mail that you receive from us. Until the appropriate level of verifiable parental consent is obtained your child will not have access to the registered account on Paperdoll Heaven.
