FIRST Privacy Policy and User Agreement

Participants and parents, and other persons entering information into FIRST online systems and databases understand and agree to the following terms:

We at FIRST take privacy and security of personal information seriously. We collect personal contact information such as postal addresses, email addresses, participant ages and team affiliations, and phone numbers to facilitate the operation and management of FIRST programs. We do not rent or sell this information to others. We may share your information with partners or others who are acting on our behalf to help conduct FIRST programs. We hold them to the same standards of privacy and security.

By entering personal information into FIRST online systems, you agree to allow FIRST to collect, use, and disclose the information for the management of FIRST programs and efforts, as well as to communicate with you about FIRST programs and efforts. FIRST sometimes uses vendors to help manage programs, efforts, and communications, and such vendors will have temporary access to this information under the same standards of privacy and security as FIRST.

The collection and use of this information is overseen by the Information Technology Manager at FIRST who can confirm, correct, or at your request delete, the information we have and our use of it, as well as address your complaints and inquiries. The Information Technology Manager can be reached via email at customer [email protected].

Youth under 18
If you are under 18, be sure to read this with your parents/guardians, and discuss it with them before entering personal information into FIRST online systems. You must also enter contact information for a parent or guardian.

Youth under 13
The minimum age for volunteering at a FIRST event is 13 years old. In compliance with the United States Federal Trade Commission's Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, effective April 21, 2000 , youth under the age of 13 may not enter personal information (such as name, address, email address) in any online systems. When FIRST collects information on children under the age of 13, that is only done with verified parental consent prior to collection. If we learn that we have collected information from a child under 13 without the required parental consent, we will delete that information as soon as possible.
