NOTICE TO PARENTS
Parents or guardians: we want to help you guard your children’s privacy. We encourage you to talk to your children about safe and responsible use of their personal information while using the internet.
The Junk Kouture site publishes content that is targeted at teenagers. If you are concerned about your children providing Junk Kouture any personal information without consent, Junk Kouture also offers a ‘JK Junior’ account. It allows parents to give parental consent for the collection, use and sharing of children’s (ages 12 and under) personal information online.
Every registered user has a unique personal profile. Each profile is assigned a unique personal identification number, which helps us ensure that only you can access your profile.
When you register, we create your profile, then send a personal identification number back to you in the form of a cookie, which is a small bit of code. This code is uniquely yours. It is your passport to seamless travel across the Junk Kouture website, allowing you to download useful tools, access secret links, and visit member only parts of the website, without having to fill out registration forms with information you have already provided.
When content is shared with you – either by accepting, downloading, accessing a Junk Kouture link or invitation, certain information regarding your activity, might also be disclosed to the shared party.
WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION YOU SHARE

We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
