Children’s Online Privacy
NIPM is concerned with the safety of children when they use the Internet. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, NIPM.in does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we receive actual knowledge that a child under the age of thirteen has registered without her or his parent’s or guardian’s permission, we will remove all personal information about that person from our files. To prevent subsequent communication to a child under the age of 13, we may maintain a record of that person’s name and address in a “do not contact” file. If a child has provided NIPM.in with personal information, we ask that a parent or guardian contact us to have that information deleted from our files.
