Children can surf www.SCBWI.org and view its content without any personally identifiable information being collected.We do not allow kids 18 and younger to participate in our Discussion Boards or Email Forums.
SCBWI believes it is good policy not to collect personally identifiable information from kids 18 and younger, so in order to apply for membership to SCBWI, the applicant must be at least 18 years old. Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. SCBWI takes technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps to protect all visitors' information. When you provide credit card information, we use secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect it. There are some things that you can do to help protect the security of your information as well. For instance, never give out your Password, since this is what is used to access all of your account information. Also remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you finish surfing the Web so that other people using the same computer won't have access to your information.
