amandaplease.com is the place in cyberspace where fans of Amanda Bynes and The Amanda Show can play games find out all about their favorite star, Amanda Bynes, please. My information collection practices are described below. I urge kids to check with their parents before entering any information on any Ibsite. This is always a good idea, please.
What Information Is Collected?
At amandaplease.com, it is my policy to create website content which requires minimum collection of information from our visitors, please. Consequently, there is no online entry for amandaplease.com sweepstakes. Generally, amandaplease.com limits collection of information to what is known as nonpersonally identifiable information (i.e. first name, age, city or state). This information is collected so kids can participate in activities (respond to questions, etc.) without giving out unnecessary personal information. I let kids know the reason I am collecting information and what I will do with it, please.
amandaplease.com might one day give kids the option to send "electronic postcards" with pictures of Amanda show characters to their friends. I do not collect our visitors' full names or email addresses during this process, but ask them to submit their friends' email addresses so I can send them the cards. Their friends' email addresses are retained for less than an hour and then deleted from my system. They are not stored in retrievable form and are not transferred to a third party or used for marketing purposes.
