Bethel Woods does not knowingly collect any information from children under 13 years old through its websites. Anyone under 18 years old should seek his or her parent’s or guardian’s permission prior to using or disclosing any information on the websites. Bethel Woods believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and should consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a safe online environment for children to work within. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing personal information without parental permission. For additional information about parental control tools, please consult the “Consumer Help” page of the Direct Marketing Association home page which can be found at www.thedma.org/resources/consumer-resources. If the parent or guardian of a child under 13 believes that the child has provided us with any information, the parent or guardian of that child should contact us if they want this information deleted from our files. If Bethel Woods obtains knowledge from any source that it has information about a child under 13 in retrievable form in its files, we will endeavor to delete that information from our existing files.
