Everything on this Internet site ("Site") is: Copyright © 2003 - 2013 IdzTech, All rights reserved.
When members sign up to play our game they will be asked to provide certain information like country, email (if over 13) and birth date. The birth date is used to make sure no child of the age 13 or below gains access to forums and private messages nor is able to supply an email address or any other personal information without verifiable parental consent. It's also used to help identify the owner of an account if the password is forgotten and no email has been supplied. The country is visible for the other users. The email address is voluntary information and is used if the member should forget their password for the automatic request password feature.
Registrants over the age of 13 will have access to PonyIsland's forums and private messaging features, both during the 20-day trial period as well as through the paid membership. However, registrants under the age of 13 will not have access to the forums and private messaging (nor will an email address be collected from them) during the trial period. The only way for users under 13 to be granted access to areas of the site where personally identifiable information will be collected or could potentially be posted is through a paid membership, which will constitute verifiable parental consent.
If a trial account is inactive for 30 days the account will get permanently deleted as well as all information connected to it. So if a child registers an account without their parent's consent all the information will eventually be permanently deleted.
If you choose to pay for your child's account you thereby also approve of your child using our forums and private message system, and you're also making it possible for your child to add an email to their account.
If you are uncomfortable with the collection of the e-mail address but wish to be able to request the password we suggest that you yourself as the parent get one of the many free email addresses available out there and use that one for registering with the account as a backup as passwords are from our experience, easily forgotten.
During play we also collect your computers "IP address" (An IP address (Internet Protocol address) is a unique address that certain electronic devices use in order to identify and communicate with each other on a computer network - in simpler terms, a computer address. It is not intended, or usable, to act as an identifier that always uniquely identifies a particular computer. This process is required to prevent cheating and account hijacking and will not be divulged or used for our own profit. The above information will be kept confidential unless applicable law requires us to divulge it.
