Access to PII
DECB defines Personally Identifiable Information (PII) as any information you share with DECB, which DECB can use—either alone or with other information—to identify you. PII that you may share with DECB include your name, email address, and telephone number. Protecting the privacy of your PII is the goal of DECB.
Anyone who browses the DECB Website does so anonymously. However, any contact made to DECB via the Contact Dr. Esther C Bubb form is not anonymous. In those instances when you provide your PII knowingly and willingly, DECB accesses the PII you provide . Any PII you provide when you use the Contact Dr. Esther C Bubb form is used to respond to you only. No person or entity may collect PII you submit through the Contact Dr. Esther C Bubb form.
DECB establishes and maintains reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect and secure any PII you share with DECB from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
PII Age Requirement
Under the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), DECB will never knowingly request PII from anyone under the age of 13 without parental consent. When parents, guardians, and caregivers knowingly and with consent provide PII for individuals under the age of 13, DECB will not share the PII of those individuals under the age of 13 with third parties.
