We at the State of Wyoming are especially concerned about protecting children’s privacy. We hope parents and teachers are involved in children’s Internet explorations. It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information online. We specifically ask children to get their parents’ permission before providing any information online, at our site or any other site, and hope parents will always be involved in those decisions. Most importantly, when children do provide information through the State of Wyoming website, it is only used to enable us to respond to the writer, and not to create profiles of children.
