MySkillChart Software User Registration and Membership
MSC users provide limited contact information from user 18 and up: first name, last initial, email address, age, gender, and country, state/province. The email address is only used to contact users to confirm their registration and at other times when necessary. For users 12 and under we collect their date of birth, gender, and parent/guardians email address. MySkillChart Software does not collect personally identifiable information from any user who is 12 or younger. Parents/guardians receives a confirmation email to which they must respond in order to activate the child's account. Parent email addresses are retained in our database for future contact. We do not market products or offerings from third parties to our users by email.
We do not disclose the users personal information to anyone, at any time except by subpoena from authorities. However, in the event of the sale or merger of the company; MySkillChart.com, LLC., the personal information collected by MySkillChart Software about its user in the normal course of its business will be shared with the partner company or successor company upon completion of the subject acquisition or merger. Parents or guardians can review their child's personal information once we receive verifiable identification. Verifiable consent can be given by one of the following methods: following the link provided in the confirmation email, provide a signed form via postal mail or facsimile or even giving us a call. Upon request, parents may delete or prohibit the further collection of their child's personal information by contacting us at help@MySkillChart.com
Another way that MySkillChart Software accesses information about users is through IP addresses. An IP address is unique to the user’s computer, and is used to identify and collect broad demographic information (like age, gender, regional information and generic interests). As a safe social network for kids, tools such as these can be used positively and in the interest of protecting the privacy and safety of all kids online.

Safe Social Networking at MySkillChart Software

Users are cautioned that anything they upload (and is subsequently approved) may be viewable by all users on the website. We recommended that the kids only upload images and information that they are willing to share with others. For added security, online search spiders are blocked from accessing any part of MySkillChart.com.
Video and Photo Uploads
Users are allowed to upload socially appropriate photos of themselves, their friends, and other subjects of interest.
