Privacy and Data Collection
Since Lakefront Scholars does not solicit information other than required for registration into an event or activity and because we do not exclusively host a web page for children, we are fully compliant with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act prohibits all operators, including Lakefront Scholars, from conditioning a child’s participation in an Internet activity on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. We do not require your child to provide more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the services offered on the Lakefront Scholars web site.
About the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
Whether playing, shopping, studying or just surfing, today’s kids are taking advantage of all that the Web has to offer. In an effort to put parents in the driver’s seat, the Federal Trade Commission has established new rules for website operators to make sure that kids’ privacy is protected while they’re online. These rules, which went into effect on April 21, 2000, are part of the 1998 Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
The law requires that Web site operators post comprehensive privacy policies on their sites, notify parents about their information practices, and obtain parental consent before collecting any personal information from children under the age of 13 or allowing kids under 13 to publicly post personal information such as on web pages, bulletin boards or chat rooms without their parent’s consent. For kids, this means that they will not have free reign of all that the Web has to offer, unless their parent provides consent.
Basically, the law was enacted not to restrict Web operators from providing services and capturing useful data, but to restrict kids from releasing information about themselves that could allow a stranger to contact them.
