Collecting Information From Children Under 13
Giggle Horse, LLC is concerned with ensuring the online privacy of children under 13 years of age. We comply with legislation regarding this issue known as COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act). Once a child states that their age is under 13, we do not collect and store any personally identifiable information such as name, address, or email address. Children under 13 may still login with a username and password and participate. However, we encourage that neither username nor password be connected to their real name.
Parents can also take an active role in protecting their children's privacy by spending time online with their children. Parents can participate in their child's site registration process to ensure accuracy of information and/or later on monitor their child's account information and request that changes be made. Parents should instruct their children to never give out any form of identifying information on the Internet. Should you wish to remove or correct any of your child's information please feel free to contact us.
Access To Mature Content
Giggle Horse, LLC attempts to provide a fun, lighthearted experience for all of its web site visitors. Our web sites are designed to be of a family-type nature and as such we attempt to keep violence, sexual content, and mature language to a minimum. However, some mature content may exist on our sites. Thus, we restrict any such content to visitors over the age of 17 years by requiring registration for those parts of the site deemed inappropriate for minors. Similarly, we do not allow obscene language in chat, message board, and profile areas and take reasonable technological measures to prevent this.
How Long We Retain Your Data

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
