You may also provide us with information about your child, including first name, birth date, gender, hometown, and home state. We or our service providers collect this information so that you can create an account for your child and can manage their use of the Sprout Channel Cubby™(e.g., the videos they may view, games they can play, and Apps they may use and download). If you have submitted your child's first name and birth date, your child's first name, birth day, age, hometown, and home state may be announced during Sprout television programming or on other Sprout services, and you may receive a birthday message to share with your child via email or postal mail. Your child's first name and birth date information that you provide on the registration page will not be shared with third parties for any other purpose. You and your child may be given the opportunity to upload materials - such as artwork, a photograph, or video ("image"), which may include a photograph or video of a child - to Sprout for display on parts of the Sprout website or Sprout Apps accessible to all users. When a user uploads these materials, we request that the user also post information which may include the corresponding child's first name, age, hometown, and home state ("image label"). We may use images and image labels on the Sprout website, Sprout Apps, or in Sprout television programming or Sprout promotional materials.
You and your child may also be given the opportunity to send messages to Sprout, such as birthday wishes or messages to Sprout characters, and are also requested to provide image label information in connection with such messages. We may use images and image labels on the Sprout Website, Sprout Apps, or in Sprout television programming or Sprout promotional materials.
Certain submissions to Sprout may require a parental release form.
