1. Obtain Verifiable Parental Consent prior to the collection, use, or distribution to third parties of Personally Identifiable Information and/or Third Party Personally Identifiable Information from children under 13. "Verifiable Parental Consent" shall relate to the type of information collected and the way the information may be used and distributed and may include any reasonable effort taking into consideration available technology to ensure that consent for collection is actually obtained from a child's parent. Mechanisms for such consent may include, but are not limited to, off-line consent such as printing and submitting a permission form by mail or facsimile; or online consent that contains a verifiable unique identifier like credit card information.
2. Prevent children under 13 from publicly posting or otherwise distributing personally identifiable contact information without prior Verifiable Parental Consent, and will make best efforts to prohibit a child from posting any contact information except as listed in Section 3 of this Schedule. This includes, but is not limited to, public posting through the Internet, through a home page of a Web site, a pen pal service, an electronic mail service, a message board, or a chat room.
3. Web sites are not required to obtain prior parental consent in order to collect and use online contact information a) to respond directly to the child's request on a one-time basis to a specific request from the child where it is not used to re-contact the child for other purposes, b) in order to request the name or online contact information of a parent for the sole purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing parental notification, and c) to respond more than once directly to a specific request from the child and not used to re-contact the child beyond the scope of that request (such as the case where a child requests a newsletter subscription). Where the information is used to contact the child more than once, the Licensee must use reasonable efforts to provide parental notification. Direct parental notification shall apply to the nature and intended use, including distribution practices, of this information, which shall include an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity.
4. Not entice a child under 13 by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity, to divulge more information than is needed to participate in such activity.

6. Provide prominent notice to children describing in age-appropriate terms what Personally Identifiable Information and/or Third Party Personally Identifiable Information is to be collected, and explain the need for those children to obtain parental consent before sharing information.
7. Establish and maintain reasonable procedures to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of Personally Identifiable Information and/or Third Party Personally Identifiable Information collected from children.
