Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Commitment
Last Updated: March 24, 2016

The Family Online Safety Institute ("FOSI") respects the privacy rights of our online visitors and recognizes the importance of protecting all information that you may choose to share with us. To further this commitment, we have adopted this online privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") to guide how we collect, store, and use the information you provide us via our websites (“Websites”).

This Privacy Policy and the ESRB certification seals shown on our Websites confirms that FOSI is a valid licensee, and participating member, of the Entertainment Software Rating Board's Privacy Certified Program (“ESRB”). To protect your privacy, we have voluntarily undertaken this privacy initiative and have had all of our Websites where this Privacy Policy is posted reviewed and certified by ESRB Privacy Certified to meet established online information collection and use practices. As a licensee of this privacy program, we are subject to frequent audits of our Websites and other enforcement and accountability mechanisms administered independently by the ESRB.

Please note that information collected on our Websites is stored and processed in the United States. By using our Websites you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. The Family Online Safety Institute complies with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. The Family Online Safety Institute has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program, and to view the Family Online Safety Institute's certification, please visit

As of the effective date of this policy, the U.S. Department of Commerce has advised that it continues to administer the Safe Harbor program despite an adverse judgment by the European Court of Justice on October 6, 2015. We are retaining our Safe Harbor certification for now pending U.S. and EU government approval of a new framework (i.e. the EU-US Privacy Shield).
