Data protection of minors

We are particularly careful with messages to children and youths.

On our websites, we offer a multitude of attractions, such as games, for which the children do not need to provide any personal data. We only collect limited data about children under 13 and only as legally defined / with the consent of the parent or legal guardian. In the event of the aforementioned conditions, we also collect the e-mail address of a child in order to enable this child to enter a competition. We do not collect any further data from children under 13 such as their postal address or telephone number unless the consent of a parent or guardian has been given.

When participating in online activities, Klosterquell will not request that the children provide more data than that which is necessary for participating in the pertinent activity and which is legally permissible or which requires the consent of a parent or guardian.

If personal data has been collected about children, such data will only be used by Klosterquell and the companies performing technical or other services if the aforementioned steps are legally permissible or require the consent of a parent or guardian. The services provided by such companies include, for instance, the improvement of our website, the processing of enquiries and the holding of competitions. These personal data are not sold to third parties.

We ask parents to regularly monitor and supervise the online activities of their children. As part of the participation in online activities, Klosterquell will not request children to provide more personal data than necessary for participating in the pertinent activity.
