We are acutely aware of the issues related to privacy of information and particularly issues surrounding the collection of personal information from children who are users of our site. At Friends and Heroes it is our policy only to collect any personal information which we need to allow users to access special areas of our site or to submit their own material or questions to our site.
We collect email addresses where users wish to be kept up to date with events at Friends and Heroes. We only require an email address for this purpose and do not request any other personal information. Users can choose to be removed from our database by sending an email to email@example.com.
When users submit a question, story, poem or picture to Friends and Heroes we ask them to create a Site Name and for an email address. IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO INCLUDE YOUR FULL NAME OR YOUR REAL NAME (THE SITE NAME IS A "NICKNAME") OR TO PROVIDE ANY OTHER INFORMATION. WE ONLY ASK FOR THIS INFORMATION SO THAT USERS WILL BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY THEIR OWN MATERIAL IF IT IS USED ON OUR SITE. We require an email address so that users who have submitted material to us can be sent a link which will allow them access to areas of our site where prizes are available.
