One of the main concerns at Bison and Bird is protection for children while using the internet. While we encourage parents to acknowledge and guide childrens’ activities on the internet, Bison and Bird do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from anyone under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
As we need to rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your information, a child would require consent from a parent. Therefore we may require parent's consent before we collect and use children’s information.
