Gathering and Use of Information
Any personal information collected by YMCASV on any of its sites will be kept strictly in-house. YMCASV will not sell or provide this information to third parties. Any information gathered by YMCASV is thru email contact.
Kids and Parents
Kids – If you are 18 years of age or younger, please be sure to ask your parents for permission before providing any information to us.
Parents – We hope that you and your kids enjoy our web site. In communicating directly with minors over the Internet, we recognize the unique issues raised regarding the protection of your kid’s privacy. The Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU), a section of The Better Business Bureau, has issued guidelines for web sites gathering information from minors. YMCASV intends to comply with the CARU guidelines in order to protect your kids and their privacy. We recommend, however, that you caution your children on the importance of scrutinizing sources and checking with you before revealing any personal information.
We encourage you to share your comments and questions with us. We promise to read all the mail you send to us, but we may not be able to respond to all of it. However, please note that we assume no responsibility for reviewing unsolicited ideas for our business (like product or advertising ideas) and will not incur any liability as a result of any similarities between your ideas and future YMCASV programs. This means that we have no obligation to treat your idea submissions confidentially and that we can use them without paying you for them. Any and all idea submissions will be owned by YMCASV exclusively and may be used by YMCASV for any purpose, now or in the future.
The YMCASV.ORG site may contain “links” to other sites. We make every effort to only link to sites that share our high standards of decency, fairness, and integrity. We try our best to ensure that these links are safe for kids and appropriate for our users in general. However, since we cannot guarantee the content of every site to which we are linked, kids should always check with an adult before linking to any new sites.
