Sending personally identifiable information by e-mail or text has a number of risks of which you should be aware prior to giving your permission.  These risks include, but are not limited to, the following:  E-mails and texts can be forwarded and stored in electronic and paper format easily without prior knowledge of the parent; can be changed without the knowledge of the sender or receiver; can contain harmful viruses and other programs.  In addition, e-mail sent over the internet without encryption is not secure and can be intercepted by unknown third parties; back-up copies of e-mail may still exist even after the sender and receiver have deleted the messages; and employers and online service providers have a right to check e-mail sent through their systems.
