Special Note to Parents and Guardians
Anyone using the Internet should ensure that their privacy is being protected. Telltale is committed to complying fully with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. We ask parents and guardians of children to discuss what information should be released on the Internet, especially personal information. Telltale does not condition a child's participation in any of the activities available on our Sites on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity.
Within the United States, Telltale does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 and, outside of the United States, Telltale does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the relevant age threshold applicable to the country or jurisdiction where a user may reside. When a user in the 13-18 year old age category submits personally identifiable information, Telltale may, in accordance with applicable laws or regulations or at Telltale’s discretion, request a parent or guardian's e-mail address to notify the parent or guardian of the activity of the user in this age category.
In accordance with applicable rules and regulations, or at Telltale’s discretion, some areas of our Sites or Services may not be accessible to anyone under the age of 18, regardless of whether a parent or guardian has provided consent.
Telltale has security measures in place to protect and prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Telltale uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information such as firewalls. While "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet, our technical experts at Telltale work hard to ensure your secure use of our services.
