Dreammining.com (The Dream Mining Company) is a safe, carefully-moderated games website and social network for kids ages 8 - 14. The Dream Mining company is fully COPPA-compliant and has consistently exceeded its standards of safety and protection for children. Our staff consists of certified child safety advocates, teachers, parents, and other passionate minds dedicated to creating a wholesome environment for children. We encourage parents to bring their questions, comments, and concerns to us.
The main areas of Dreammining.com are free to use, require no registration, and do not store any personally identifiable information. These include "video," "music, “play”, “character” sections and most of the "games" section.
In certain sections of our site, we will collect some information, in order to make your experience the best possible. For instance, some games require registration with our social network in order to play, and are covered under the "Dream Mining Company Social Network paragraph" below. We’ll describe what information we collect and how we use it next.
1. THE DREAM MINING COMPANY SOCIAL NETWORK
1.1 What Information We Collect:
Registering for The Dream Mining Company involves inputting an e-mail address, and a handle, or username. We require users to input their e-mail address in order to protect our users. Also, we allow our users to create an avatar profile and upload moderated photos.
By verifying that a valid e-mail
address is used, we can be certain the registrant is a person and not
a robot who could cause harm to our social network or its participants.
1.2 How We Use The Information We Collect:
By verifying that a valid e-mail address is used, we can be certain the registrant is a person and not a robot who could cause harm to our social network or its participants.
The Dream Mining Company does
not view or use registrants' e-mail addresses for any purpose except
to identify potential threats to the safety of our environment and to
notify users about new and exciting features on DreamMining. In addition,
children under 13 who register for our site must do so with a parent's
permission. An e-mail is sent to the parent for verification that the
parent allows his/her child to participate in the forum. No third parties
ever, for any reason, get any information about our members.
The Dream Mining Company does e-mail users on occasion, but only if they have opted to receive updates about our social network. Updates and announcements about The Dream Mining Company are the only kinds of e-mails users will ever receive from us. You can opt out of receiving these emails at any time by emailing us at email@example.com or you can opt out through your account settings on your profile.
2. General Information Policy:
The Dream Mining Company never asks its users for information such as full name, telephone number, or home address. In addition, The Dream Mining Company is monitored 24 hours per day, 7 days per week by live people, and electronic scripts are constantly running in order to prevent the transmission of personally identifiable information and generally protect the identities of The Dream Mining Company users.
3. Information Storage And Retention:
Users under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent during their registration and that parent must verify his/her e-mail address in order to give permission for their child to use The Dream Mining Company. Parents' e-mail address will be used to deliver relevant safety updates and announcement about the site.
The security of your personal information
is important to us. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic,
and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized
access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we
collect online. When you enter sensitive information, such as your credit
card number, or our membership subscription form, we encrypt that information
using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
5. Financial Information
If you decide to purchase a membership, the parent's full name, email address, credit card billing information including mailing address will be required at the time of purchase. That information is not stored by The Dream Mining, and, instead, is collected and stored by our payments processing vendor for the purpose of processing payments made to The Dream Mining Company. That information is safeguarded with appropriate security, and it will not be used for other purposes. Furthermore, our payments processing vendor has agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal and financial information it obtains from the Dream Mining website, and only to use this information on our behalf. Our financial institution is bound by all applicable privacy laws relating to the provision of financial services.

7. How To Access Your Stored Information, How To Object To The Information; How To Change Or Delete The Information
Please contact us at the email address listed below if you would like to access the personally identifiable information that we have collected online from you or your child, correct factual errors in such information, request to have this information deleted, or request that we no longer collect or maintain such information.
Please be sure to include your email address and a telephone number where we can reach you. To protect you and your child's privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before granting you access to the personal information that we collect and maintain about you or your child.
At any time, a parent may request that their child's account and information be deleted. A representative from The Dream Mining Company may ask for clarification about the reasons for deletion for our own internal records, but will never refuse to delete an account except if there are grave safety concerns involved (for instance, if a user has been bullying another user, we may choose to retain the account of either party for a short amount of time in order to properly address the situation).
We take our users' privacy extremely seriously, and we have adopted policies and practices that will keep the private information you provide to us safe. To address privacy concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact us at 646-801-4496, but we strongly prefer you seek help by e-mail first. We will always be happy to speak with you and help you to feel as comfortable as possible with our efforts to keep our online community exceptionally safe.
