registration must send us an e-mail at privacy@IVIAGO.COM and provide us with
their child's User ID or alternatively, a parent must provide verifiable
identification that they are the parent of the ineligible child. Children under

e-mail address, in addition to the child's name and e-mail address associated
with the child's User ID registered on the IVIAGO Network, plus the child's date

address provided to verify that the parent wishes to terminate his or her
child's registration. The parent must then confirm by sending a reply e-mail to
the designated return address. IVIAGO will then terminate the child's account
but will notify the child of the termination request via e-mail and will
identify the name, address and e-mail address of the person making the request.

user, including, without limitation, a registered user of any services, features
or functions of the IVIAGO Network, if we believe there is a question about the
identity of the person trying to access any services, features or functions of
the IVIAGO Network. If the burden or expense of providing access to your
Personal Information is disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or if the
legitimate rights of others would be violated, we may decide not to provide
access to such information. In such cases, we will provide to you an explanation
of why access cannot be provided and a contact person for further inquiries.
