If the Company becomes aware that a child under the age of eighteen (18) has provided personal information on the Sites, the Company shall take reasonable measures to delete all such personal information prior to the public posting of such child’s personal information and further, the Company shall delete all such information from the Company’s stored records; provided, however, that in instances in which the Company collects a persistent identifier and no other personal information, the Company may use such identifier solely to provide support for the internal operations of the Sites.
