Rest of SOFTHOSTS, Inc.'s Web site
SOFTHOSTS, Inc. does not seek to collect personal information about kids through other parts of the SOFTHOSTS, Inc. Web site. If a kid submits information to us through any part of our Web site and we know that the person submitting the information is a kid, we delete the information as soon as we discover it and do not use it for any purpose, nor do we disclose it to third parties.
Reviewing and Deleting Information
Since we do not seek to collect any personal information about kids, and we delete such information that we collect inadvertently as soon as we discover that a kid has submitted it, we typically retain no information about kids that could be reviewed or deleted. In the odd event that a parent requests review or deletion of information about a kid before we have discovered and deleted the information, then we will of course honor that request.
