Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)
Our Service is designed to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), and associated Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) rules for collecting personal information of/from minors. Under COPPA, We are an “operator” and as such subject to certain obligations under COPPA with regard to personal information pertaining to children under the age of 13. We endeavor to not collect, use, or disclose the personal information of a child under the age of 13 without the verified consent of their parent.
Upon subscribing to the Service, we will verify the parent’s or guardian’s consent by collecting their full credit card information and billing them for the requested monetary transactions. If however, no transaction is requested, we may still collect the parent’s or guardian’s credit card information for the purposes of obtaining verified consent, and will verify consent by charging the card a nominal non-refundable fee.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, we shall not retain the personal information of any child under the age of 13 longer than is reasonably necessary to fulfill the services requested, to allow the child to participate in the Service, to ensure the security of our users and our Service, or as otherwise required by applicable law.
A parent may review, edit, object to additional processing, or request the deletion of their child’s personal information by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To protect the child’s privacy and security, we shall take reasonable steps to verify the identity of the parent before giving them access to such personal information. We shall also delete a child’s personal information in the event that we find it is collected, used, or disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent of COPPA’s requirements, or immediately seek the parent’s consent for the same. If you believe that your child under 13 has gained access to our Site without your permission, or wish to review the personal information collected by us from your child or to request the deletion of such personal information, please contact us at email@example.com.
Please see the FTC's website (www.ftc.gov) for more information on COPPA.
