Personally-identifiable information.

The Longview Horse Park Association may give other companies access to our information database, but only if necessary to allow them to provide database or server maintenance or security, help us process and fulfill orders or requests, or provide other similar services to the Longview Horse Park Association. If we do provide access, we require those other companies to sign confidentiality agreements promising to keep secret any information they see.
We may also disclose personal information if we believe that the disclosure is required by law, or in response to a legal request.
This web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites.

4. Children Under 13
We operate our Website in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). COPPA requires that we inform parents about how we collect, use, and disclose personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age (“children” or a “child”), and that we obtain the consent of parents in order for children to use certain features of our Websites. We strongly urge that children not provide any personally identifiable information on our Websites without the knowledge and permission of a parent or legal guardian (for convenience, together “parent”).
(1) What types of information do we collect from children and how do we use/share that information?
Children, and others, can generally surf, research and view content on our Websites without having to provide any personally identifiable information. Our practices regarding the collection, use and sharing of personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information from children are, except as identified below, the same as with those 13 years of age or older. For full details, see [reference to paragraphs on collection and use] above.
If an activity involves collecting personally identifiable information from a child, it will typically be limited to the collection of the name, address, and date of birth of the child, along with the information directly tied
to participating in the activity (for instance, a child’s opinion on a particular subject, recollection of an event, etc.). However, we do not and may not require that children provide more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity.
The personally identifiable information we collect is used to communicate with the child about the activity (e.g., provide notice, respond to requests, etc.) and consistent with the terms we provide when we collect the information. This information may also be used by us or shared with our parent, subsidiaries and affiliates to provide additional information about us, send offers, or for other promotional or marketing purposes (collectively “Marketing”). Parents may always direct us (by contacting us as provided below) not to share their child’s personally identifiable information with these parties or not to use the information for Marketing.
Please note that for many activities that contemplate public disclosure of information collected from a child, we take reasonable steps to preserve the child’s anonymity – i.e., limit the information shared so that others cannot identify or contact the child. However, this may not be possible or compatible with certain activities, such as participation in forums, postings on message boards or online chats. Prior to allowing a child to participate in these types of activities, we strongly encourage parents to establish ground rules with the child to preserve the child’s anonymity and privacy.
(2) How do we notify and obtain consent from parents?
(3) How can a parent access, change or delete personally identifiable information about their child?
At any time a parent can refuse to permit us to collect additional personal information from their child, review the personal information we have collected, or request that their child’s information be deleted from our database. To do so, a parent must contact us as provided below. Parents may also use this contact information if they have any questions or concerns.
5. How to Notify Us.
We will respond to your request and, if applicable and appropriate, make the requested change in our active databases as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that we may not be able to fulfill certain requests while allowing you access to certain benefits and features of our Website.
