Securing the Transmission and Storage of Information
Information Relating to Children
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was passed by the U.S. Congress in November 1998. COPPA provides parents with specific rights regarding their children’s privacy. For additional information and resources on COPPA, please visit the Federal Trade Commission Web site at http://www.ftc.gov/. The FRENCHBULLDOG Website and any Software or Services available on this site are not directed at children under 13 years of age and, therefore, COPPA does not apply. However, we recognize that children under the age of 13 may access this Website and subscribe to the newsletter, purchase Software and Services, or download software programs. The collection of information is covered above. Parents and Legal Guardians may request from us to review, delete or stop the collection of the personally identifiable information of their child. You may do so by contacting us by email to: info@FRENCHBULLDOG.com

FRENCHBULLDOG does not track users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites may keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your web browser may allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
FRENCHBULLDOG does not authorize the collection of personally identifiable information by third parties and third parties cannot collect this information unless you provide it to them directly.
