Privacy Statement: Suggestions for Parents
While we believe talkingfingers.com provides a safe on-line environment for kids to learn about and explore the world, there are many Internet sites that don't provide such safety. We encourage you to monitor your children's use of the Internet and to become familiar with the Web sites your children visit. To help protect your children's privacy on the Internet, we suggest taking the following precautions:
- Remind your children never to give out personal information such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, school names, or phone numbers without your permission.
- Get to know your children's on-line friends. If you would be uncomfortable with your children meeting a friend in person, then you should be wary of them maintaining a friendship on-line. Reduce the risks of your children stumbling onto inappropriate material.
- Check into programs that allow parents to block access to on-line services and features that are adult in nature.
- Make sure your children know they should come to you if they encounter anyone or anything on the Internet that makes them feel uncomfortable or afraid.
For more information about on-line safety for your children, check out the U.S. Department of Education's Web site at the following address: http://www.ed.gov/pubs/parents/internet/
In order to help schools integrate the Talking Fingers family of products into their curriculum, we have correlated both our software programs with the Language Arts standards of each of the 50 states.
