You will be required to submit your name and email address, as well as your friends name and email address. Your friend's personal information that you submit in this feature will be used only to send the email you request, and will not be stored or maintained by Girls Rock.

These activities will have their own Rules, Terms, Conditions and Disclosures and those will be posted next to Sweepstake/Contest as appropriate. Per the particular Sweepstakes/Contest's Rules, Terms, Conditions, and Disclosures, the information collected may be passed to third-party Sponsor(s) of the Sweepstake/Contest (e.g., the organization that is offering the free prize in the Sweepstake or Contest) and/or a fulfillment house(s) which may use the information to help run the Sweepstake/Contest.

Please do not attempt to register for Girls Rock directly or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personally identifiable information to Girls Rock. If you believe that we might have personal information from or about a child under 13, please contact the child’s adult parent and please direct that adult parent to log into their Girls Rock Parent Account and remove it. If for some reason you cannot reach the Adult parent or the information appears to have been posted by some other GR member not related to the child; and you cannot reach or communicate with this other GR member. You may take a screen grab of the information and email it to us: privacy"AT"girlsrock"Dot"com. Please note the specific URL and location of the information in your email. Please note the Girls Rock User Name of the person who posted the information. Please also provide your complete real name (first and last) and phone number. **Warning!** Please do not make false claims or representations. This is very serious. You may think it is prank – but if we determine that your email or intentions are not legit or not serious, e.g., you are making false representations about yourself or false claims about another GR member; we will permanently delete your account, ban you from the Site forever, and/or report you to the proper authorities. There is a lot of good online safety material available and we have provided some helpful links in our Online Safety section.
