This policy is in accordance with the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and outlines our practices in the United States regarding children’s personal information.
COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.
We market to and collect information from children under 13.
Do we let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from children under 13?
In order to remove your child's information please contact the following personnel:

We adhere to the following COPPA tenants:
• We will not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity.
• Parents can review their child's personal information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child's information.
• Parents can agree to the collection and use of their child's information, but still not allow disclosure to third-parties unless that's part of the service.
• Parents can review, delete, manage or refuse with whom their child's information is shared through account settings on our website, through emailing our support staff, by mailing us a letter contacting us directly.
• Parents can give consent by sign a consent form and send it back to you via fax, mail, or electronic scan, use a credit card, debit card, or other online payment system that provides notification of each separate transaction to the account holder or contacting us directly.
1. Information we collect from children
During our registration process we ask the child to provide certain information to facilitate security, account validation, and notification purposes. The information we request includes:
· Parent or guardian’s email address
· Child’s first name
· Child’s member account username and password
· Child’s Birthdate for age verification
The above information is used to create the initial request for an account. Following account validation through consent from a parent or guardian the account can include additional details:
· Last name
· Additional profile information
About the collection of the parent email address:
Per COPPA’s requirements for sites targeting audiences of children 12 years or younger, we request the parent or guardian’s email address prior to any collection of personal information from the child. We will not utilize the parent email address for any purpose other than parental consent unless the parent or guardian has expressly agreed to receive email marketing materials or other communications.
About Verifiable Parental Consent:
We seek parent or guardian consent through Email. Our verifiable parental consent email contains:
· The information collected during the registration process
· The information we are collecting
· How we plan to use the information
· How the parent or guardian may provide consent
· How the parent or guardian may revoke consent
In school-based activities, and in accordance with COPPA guidelines, school administrators and teachers are allowed to act in the stead of parents or guardians to provide consent to the collection of personal information. Visit the FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) website for more details FERPA site.
2. Parental Controls
At any time, parents can refuse to permit us to collect further personal information from their children in association with a particular account and can request that we delete from our records the personal information we have collected in connection with that account. Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to a termination of an account, membership, or other service.
Parents or guardians can contact Speed of You - firstname.lastname@example.org - at any time to request, change, or delete their child’s personal information.
