Dear Parent/Legal Guardian:
Your child has recently provided personal information (such as an email address) on a Wigu Publishing website (WhenIGrowUpBooks.com, WhenIGrowUpAdventurs.com).  We are committed to providing your child a safe place to learn and explore.
Your child would like your permission to fully participate in the communications portions of the site such as (1) sending and receiving email (the website’s internal e-mail system) from Wigu Publishing and other users of the Wigu Publishing websites; (2) reading and posting messages on Wigu Publishing message boards. Your child has provided your e-mail address, name and his or her name to us so that we can request your permission to allow your child to use these communications portions of the site.
Your permission is required for the collection, use, or disclosure of your child’s personal information. We will not activate your child’s account for the communications portions of the site unless you provide us permission.

Please remind your child not to publicly post personal information such as name, telephone number or e-mail on any website. We may monitor messages and posts through our filtering system by our human monitors but your continued involvement is important.
