Information about Children

Whilst information relating to children is not considered to be special category information, it is information that is given specific protection.  Where the child is under the age of 13 we will always ask for the consent of parents before allowing the child to set up an account in iKnow and ensure that the parent are able to access and administer the account.

Where a child is 13 or over then we will permit the child to have their own iKnow account, but we may (if we believe it to be appropriate in the circumstances) inform the parents. We will tell the child at the time of signing up that we may inform their parents and we will only do this where it is appropriate and lawful to do so.
