The protection of personal data of children and adolescents is of particular concern to the CEV. The CEV Platforms and their content are not directed at children under the age of 13. The CEV recommends that parents discuss the use of the Internet and the provision of personal data on websites with their children before allowing minors between 13 and 16 to navigate through CEV Platforms.

The CEV will never knowingly collect personal data from or about children under 13 and will only knowingly collect personal data or allow user registration from minors between 13 and 18 where parental permission has been obtained as required by applicable law.


If any part of the CEV Platforms link to other websites, those websites do not operate under this Privacy Policy. If you choose to visit an advertiser or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website.

Additional terms and conditions may apply to your visit and/or use of the CEV Platforms, especially for any terms and conditions linked to an application used for such CEV Platforms.
