Policies for Children (Individuals Under 13 Years of Age)
Minnesota Wedding Guide encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the activities offered on the sites. No information should be submitted to or posted at Minnesota Wedding Guide by guests under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian.
Minnesota Wedding Guide does not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever from our guests under 13 years of age. If a guest under 13 years of age registers for our newsletter, he/she is required to provide the e-mail address of his/her parent or guardian and that parent or guardian receives an e-mail alerting them to that Registration. The parent or guardian must validate the account, as described in the e-mail, in order for the potential member to receive the Minnesota Wedding Guide newsletter. Any Minnesota Wedding Guide correspondence would then be directed to the e-mail of the parent or guardian validating the registration. No information collected from guests under 13 years of age is used for any marketing or promotional purposes whatsoever, either inside or outside Minnesota Wedding Guide , except as explicitly stated during registration for contests or promotions (and in that case, the information collected is used only for the specific contest or promotion). Although guests under 13 years of age may be allowed to participate in some contests and promotions, if such a guest wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parents or guardians identified in the initial registration process. Publication of contest winners names, ages, or images for individuals under 13 require parental or guardian consent. We do not allow guests under 13 years of age to be listed in our member directory or to receive direct marketing communications from Minnesota Wedding Guide or to be sent our third-party offers.
