Under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), an operator of a commercial website or online service directed to children under 13 years of age is required to obtain verifiable parental consent to collect, use, or disclose personal information of a child. There are certain limited exceptions allowing operators to collect a child’s email address without prior parental consent, including but not limited to, collecting a child’s or parent’s email address to provide notice and to seek consent, and collecting an email address to respond to a one-time request from a child and then deleting it.
As noted above, we wish to obtain the types of information identified above from those people, including children, who visit our website.
To ensure that we comply with the law, we request children under 13 years of age not to contact us directly, but rather to have their parent or guardian contact us.
You may refuse to allow us to collect or use any personally identifying information on your child and/or to communicate with your child, and to have us delete what information we do have. If you consent at first you may later change your mind and revoke your consent.
If you have any questions about COPPA, you may contact the Federal Trade Commission online at www.ftc.gov. You also may call the FTC’s Consumer Response Center toll-free at 1-877-FTC-HELP (382-4357), or write Consumer Response Center, Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20580.
