This information is used internally by Lost Valley Ranch to fulfill your requests and for marketing and research purposes.

Lost Valley Ranch is committed to protecting the online privacy of children. In accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"), Lost Valley Ranch will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without first obtaining parental consent. Prior to providing any personally identifiable information (your name, email address, address, phone number etc.), either by placing an order for merchandise, setting up a www.lostvalleyranch.com account, or participating in any other activity offered through the www.lostvalleyranch.com site, children under the age of thirteen (13) must have a parent or legal guardian complete and return (by mail or fax) a Parental Consent Form to www.lostvalleyranch.com - Lost Valley Ranch ., 29555 Goose Creek Road, Sedalia Colorado 80135-9000; or by fax to: 303-647-2315. The consent form states that the child's "Parent" or "Legal Guardian", by his or her signature, consents to the collection and transfer of the child's personally identifiable information. Consent may be revoked by completing a "Lost Valley Ranch Revocation of Parental Consent Form" and sending it to the address or fax number above.
In compliance with COPPA, Lost Valley Ranch is sensitive about children consulting with parents or guardians before furnishing personal information or ordering anything online. It's also Lost Valley Ranch's intention to adhere to the Children's Advertising Review Unit (CARU) Guidelines on Internet advertising with its special sensitivities regarding solicitations to children under thirteen (13). Lost Valley Ranch encourages parents/guardians to supervise and join their children in exploring cyberspace. Lost Valley Ranch is proud of its website and believes that it is suitable for Lost Valley Ranch fans of all ages.
Please note that if a parent does not permit www.lostvalleyranch.com's use or collection of personally identifiable information or has instructed Lost Valley Ranch to delete personally identifiable information, a child's participation in those www.lostvalleyranch.com activities for which the personally identifiable information has been requested may not be possible.
Lost Valley Ranch will not disclose information collected from children under the age of thirteen (13) (or from adults for that matter) to third parties unless indicated otherwise or in special cases where Lost Valley Ranch has reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference (whether intentionally or unintentionally) with Lost Valley Ranch's rights or property or anyone else who may be harmed by such actions or if required by law.
Lost Valley Ranch recommends that parents/guardians monitor and supervise the online activities of their children and to consider using available parental control tools which can prevent children from disclosing their name, address, and other personal information without parental permission. Visitors to Lost Valley Ranch's website who are under thirteen (13) years old should not be submitting any personal information like their name, address, e-mail address, phone number etc. without a parent's or guardian's permission.
