Children Under 18 Years of Age

The Rock Hall does not knowingly collect any information from children under 13 years old through the Website. Anyone under 18 years old may only access the Website or disclose information to the Rock Hall under the direct guidance and supervision of a parent or guardian. The Rock Hall believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and should consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a safe online environment for children to work within. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing personal information without parental permission. If the parent or guardian of a child under 13 believes that the child has provided us with any information, the parent or guardian of that child should contact us if they want this information deleted from our files. If the Rock Hall obtains knowledge from any source that it has information about a child under 13 in retrievable form in its files, we will delete that information from our existing files.

From time to time, the Rock Hall or its service providers may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate (for example, by publishing a report on trends in the usage of Rock Hall’s Services or service provider’s platforms). The Rock Hall also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Services.
