Before fulfilling a California consumer’s request to access or delete personal information, we are required to attempt to verify the consumer’s identity to ensure the request is valid. To do this we may request additional information to help us verify your identity, which we will only use for verification purposes. If we cannot verify that the consumer making the request is the consumer about whom we have collected information or is a person authorized by the consumer to act on such consumer’s behalf, then we may deny the request. We will inform you if we deny your request for this or any other reason, including the basis for our denial. You can use an authorized agent to submit requests about your personal information. If you use an authorized agent, in addition to verifying the request itself (see above), we will also verify the agent’s authority to act on your behalf. To avoid delays, agents should submit a power of attorney or other verifiable information to prove that they are authorized to act on your behalf.

What Information Does Kidsandpencils Collect from Children and How Is It Used?
To participate in coloring activities, like personalized pages, games or clubs, we might ask your child to register. They can often do so anonymously by just providing a first name or user name, and password. When we ask for your child’s first name, we encourage them to use a "screen name" (not their real name) that only they know. Sometimes we will ask your child to make up a special password. We use technology, like cookies, to recognize visitors by their user name when they use the website, and to provide us important information that helps us understand features and areas of most interest. We may also use these technologies to screen for age. We may also use technology for similar purposes in our apps.
We also use technology and work with third-party technology partners to facilitate the ability to ecognize returning visitors, for research, and for other purposes, including to screen under-age visitors from certain features or areas intended for older visitors, and to get certain automatically collected information automatically. We ask our advertising agency service partners under contract with us to comply with self-regulatory guidelines on targeted advertising.
