is totally committed to providing the safest and most

The Nickelodeon website (www.nicksplat.com) is a place
specially created for kids on the world wide web where
they can get involved with the Nickelodeon Asia Pacific
channel, express themselves and above all, play.
At Nickelodeon, we encourage kids (and their parents or
guardians) to get as much out of the website as possible,
but want to ensure that all website visitors know as much
as they can about protecting their private and personal
1. Do Not Give Out Your Personal
Information to Unknown Sources
Kids! Never give out personal information to people you
don’t know. Check with your parents or guardians
before giving out anything you think might be personal
information on any website. There’s no harm in checking
first if you’re not sure!
Talk to your Parents or Guardians
Talk to them about the release of personal information
and make sure you understand what are the reasons for
giving it out are. Sometimes you might wish to give
out personal information for good reasons. At other
times, it might be unnecessary.
What Information Is Collected
At The website?
At Nickelodeon Asia Pacific,
it is our policy to create website content which requires
minimum collection of information from our visitors.
Generally, Nickelodeon Asia Pacific limits collection
of information to what is known as non-personally identifiable
information (e.g. first name, age, birthday, gender,
city or town). This information is collected so kids
can participate in activities without giving out unnecessary
personal information. Where we need extra information,
e.g. kids'/parents' email addresses, telephone numbers
(as explained below) to run competitions or to offer
extra on-line activities, we let kids know the reason
for which we are collecting the information and what
we will do with it. We do not as a condition to a kid's
participation in any of our on-line activity require
the disclosure of more information than is reasonably
There are some areas of the website
that ask kids to enter personally identifiable information.
We have made this safer and easier for the child to
use by establishing a Nick Name and Password facility.
This requires the Child to enter in personally identifiable
information only once at the time of registration, but
after that they only require to put in their Nick Name
and Password. This personal information is added to
the Nickelodeon database and is used for the purpose
of fulfilling prizes, mailing/emailing newsletters and
birthday cards, emailing our Nicksclusive newsletters
and for other Nickelodeon marketing purposes. The personal
information is not on sold to any third party. It is
not displayed anywhere in the website.
The main way we collect personally identifiable
information is through our registration process. In
order to take part in our registered member activities,
we ask kids to submit personal information such as full
name, email address, postcode and birthday and we ask
each kid if they wish to opt-in to receiving emails
from us as part of our activities for registered members
e.g. our newsletter. We remind them to ask a parent/guardian
for permission first. The information is used to allow
kids to take part in registered member activities such
as message boards, newsletters, any special member competitions
and send postcards. Registered kids can unsubscribe
at any time.
All such personal information collected
during the registration process is used only for the
purpose of providing kids with access to our registered
member activities. It is not currently our policy to
use such information for general marketing purposes
or to share such information with third parties (except
in relation to competitions as set out below or where
we are required to do so by law or in the context of
a business transfer). Should our policy on this change,
we will let you know and give you the choice to be included.
We do not obtain or require
disclosure of sensitive personal data (such as ethnic
origin or religion) but if you choose to provide us
with such sensitive personal data, we may assume such
sensitive personal data is provided with your express
consent for processing by us for the purposes for which
such personal data was provided by you unless otherwise
notified by you to us in writing in the feedback
We offer the opportunity to all kids
to enter competitions on-line. In order to run competitions
and send out prizes, it is necessary to collect some
personally identifiable information from kids. This
can include name, address and telephone number. As a
matter of policy, we keep such information only for
the purposes of administering the competition and do
not disclose such information to third parties except
where necessary to fulfill the prizes (e.g. it may be
shared with fulfillment houses for processing purposes).
We may from time to time offer competitions sponsored
by third party businesses and may share entrant information
with such businesses in order to fulfill the competition
only. We will provide potential entrants with the opportunity
to opt-in to such third party sponsored competitions.
Once a competition is finished, we will delete any personal
information collected via on-line entry forms from our
systems and it is not kept for any longer than is necessary.
Nicksplat.com E-cards are animated e-postcards that
kids can send to friends and family. We do not collect
our visitors' full names, but we do collect email addresses
during this process in order to inform the user that
their postcard has been read. We also ask users to submit
their friends' email addresses so we can send them these
e-cards. We think it would be disproportionate to inform
how we will be using their personal data beforehand
because it would spoil the surprise of receiving the
friend’s electronic postcard. However, we can
reassure users that this data is not transferred to
a third party or used for marketing purposes and it
is not kept for any longer than is necessary.
Nick Blogs and
The Nick Blogs at Nicksplat.com site is intended for
kids and we will not knowingly collect personal information
from adults who pose themselves as kids. If you are
a parent or legal guardian of a child under age 13 who
has become a member of our website, please fill in the
feedback form to
notify us of a suspected violation.
The nature of blogging is to reach a public audience.
Please be aware that any information that you submit
to us whether through message boards, picture uploads,
blogs, feedback and e-mail, including personally identifiable
information, may be publicly displayed on Nicksplat.com,
or on websites not within our control. If you don’t
want others to see such information, do not submit it.
We provide kids with the opportunity
to email us with their opinions and comments. We request
no personally identifiable information unless the kid
indicates that he or she wants us to reply. In these
circumstances, we ask for a first name and email address.
This information is used solely by us in order to give
requested feedback and is then deleted from our system
We have taken steps to ensure that all
personally identifiable information that we collect
is secure, including limiting the number of people who
have physical access to our database servers as well
as electronic security systems and password protections,
which guard against unauthorised access.
