A Note To Parents
Our mission is to be the leader in high quality, fun and inspiring interactive adventure entertainment targeted to female play preferences. Our Nancy Drew series offers exciting adventure game play without violence or gender stereotypes.
We recommend our games for sleuths age 10 and up. Her Interactive's games have been rated "E" or "E10+" by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB). The ESRB is an independent agency that rates and monitors products in the game software industry. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the ESRB rating system so you can identify appropriate game content for your family.
Discuss Internet Safety With Your Child
Parent Consent/COPPA Form For Message Board
As required by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, Her Interactive does not knowingly collect, use, or disclose certain, personal information from children under age 13 without parental consent. Children under age 13 may not participate in any activities or services offered on the Site which require registration, including the Message Boards, without the prior written consent of a parent or legal guardian. Once Her Interactive has obtained consent from the parent or guardian of a minor, we will only ask the child to provide information that is reasonably necessary for participation in the Site's activities and services.
Any time a child under age 13 registers with the Message Boards, or provides Personal Information via the Site, Her Interactive will send their parent or legal guardian an email containing a COPPA Consent Form. You may consent to your child providing Personal Information and/or participating in certain activities and services offered on the Site, by completing and signing the Consent Form, and either faxing the completed Consent Form to Her Interactive at 425-460-8788, mailing the completed form to Her Interactive, Inc., 1150-114th Ave. S.E., Bellevue, WA 98004 or emailing the completed form to webmaster@herinteractive. No child under age 13 may submit or post Personal Information on or to the Site prior to Her Interactive's receipt of a Consent Form which provides verifiable consent of a parent or legal guardian.
