In compliance with federal law, we do not request or accept personally identifiable information directly from children under the age of 13, without verifying and receiving the consent of their parent or legal guardian. However, through this site, a parent or legal guardian may provide such information as part of the purchase of a dog registration or a junior handler/dog team registration, or by establishing a Web access account (i.e., Subscriber Services account) that may include or provide access by a child under the age of 13 so that they may compete in USDAA sanctioned events and monitor their results through the Subscriber Services area and other sections of our Web site. If you do so, by providing this personally identifiable information and purchasing one of these services on our Web site, you agree that you understand how such information can and may be used (i.e., the identification of the registrant/competitor in competition and in public media of any type as explained under "How do you give your consent?" section below.)
As required under federal law, the parent of a child under 13 has the option to agree to the collection and use of the child's information without consenting to the disclosure of that information to third parties; however, if consent is not granted, the child would be ineligible to participate in events or other activities that would necessitate such disclosure, such as USDAA -sanctioned events. Further, USDAA will not disclose more information about the child than is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in an activity and to promote the results thereof including, but not limited to, announcement of awards, telecast of performance or other coverage in the media. Further, the parent has the right to revoke their consent to the further collection and/or use of personal information about the child at any time and may direct USDAA to delete all personal information under its control. However, this does not extend to inclusion of such information in any media already distributed or contracted to be distributed (e.g., television or other broadcast or publication) that may be beyond its control. Further, deletion of personal information would result in the cancellation of registrations and/or subscriber accounts, as such information is necessary for the ongoing use fo such registrations and accounts.
