COOPA, Children Online Privacy Protection Act
As a website that may collect personal information from children under the age of 13, we take our responsibilities under COOPA very seriously. Here are some key points you should be aware of:
- We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without parental consent. If we discover that we have collected personal information from a child under 13 without parental consent, we will promptly delete that information.
- We may collect personal information from children under the age of 13 with parental consent. This consent can be provided in various ways, such as by phone or email, and we will make reasonable efforts to verify that the person giving consent is the child’s parent or legal guardian.
