Protection for Children and Visitors
Very Important: The information you share about yourself or your child is your sole responsibility, and you should use all discretion regarding information that you share. We urge you to use discretion; Purely assumes no liability for such information.
If you are a parent who believes that we have collected information about a child under age 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (616) 805-9552 with your child’s name and address, and we will be happy to delete information we have about your child from our records and provide information in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). In the event we discover we have collected information from a child in a manner inconsistent with COPPA requirements, we will either delete the information or immediately seek the parent’s consent for the collection. If we do not receive parental consent within a reasonable time, we will delete the information.
If you are a parent of a 13-17 year old teen, and do not want your child to participate in Purely’s opportunities, please contact us at email@example.com or (616) 805-9552. Please let us know about any concerns about our site.
For Children Ages 3-12: For the protection of your children, Purely requires that a parent or legal guardian set up and maintain the artist account on behalf of the child. Parents must maintain confidentiality of their password, as children are not permitted to make changes, including public profiles and payment information to their accounts.We adhere strictly to the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), and urge parents to visit OnGuard Online for information about COPPA, and for further information on how you can proactively protect your children’s online privacy.
We ask for minimal information in account creation--name, birth month and year, username, and password. We only display your username and age range in your public profile (NOT your name), though you may add other information in your Artist Statement.
Part of the account creation process includes registration to receive a commission payment when merchandise bearing your art is purchased. We will pay you monthly via PayPal. To make this happen, we will ask for your PayPal email address. If you don't already have a PayPal account, the Purely registration form will include a link for setting it up. Purely does not have or store your payment information at any time.
Parental Choices And Controls
Parents or guardians may request that an account be closed, information be deleted, and/or that no further information about their child be collected in association with his/her account. In this case, Purely may need to terminate the account.
If we collect a teen’s information in order to reply to a question or request, we will simultaneously alert the parent via given email address.
A Purely artist account and/or personal information may deleted at any time. To delete an account email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents can also make a direct request to Purely to request access, edit, or delete their child’s account by reaching us at email@example.com. Please include the child’s username, parent’s email address and phone number. We will act within a reasonable time, and take reasonable steps to verify a parent’s identity before granting access to a child’s account.

Communications with Parents
We welcome all comments, suggestions, and questions. Please contact us at email@example.com, by phone (616) 805-9552, and we will respond as quickly as possible.
Parents will maintain and manage their 3-12 year-olds’ accounts, and will only receive email communications from us when an unusual issue arises.
Teens, you are not bound by the same restrictions that younger artists are; however, we will just shoot your parents an email to let them know that you will create a Purely Artist account.
If you later decide that your artists should not showcase their art, or receive proceeds from the sale of merchandise bearing their art, you may request that the account be closed by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling us at (616) 805-9552.
