Privacy Policy 

CHILDRENS PRIVACY POLICY

 

Effective January 14, 2014:

 

1 – IMPORTANT BACKGROUND INFORMATION REGARDING COPPA

 

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) 1998 gives parents control over what information websites can collect from their kids.  The COPPA Rule with new provisions effective on July 1, 2013 puts additional protections in place and streamlines other procedures that companies covered by the rule need to follow. 

 

Parents should be aware of the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) published privacy information by the parent entering the following web URL http://business.ftc.gov/privacy-and-security/childrens-privacy.

 

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about COPPA can be found on the web or by a parent entering the following web URL http://www.business.ftc.gov/documents/0493-Complying-with-COPPA-Frequently-Asked-Questions.

 

Additionally Apple incorporated as part of a section in their app development guidelines detailing apps for children under aged 13. It specifies that such apps must include a privacy policy, may not include behavioral advertising (ads based on in-app activity, for example), and must ask for parental permission before allowing children to "link out of the app or engage in commerce."  Hence Apple asks developers to designate apps regarding the Kids Category of the App Store so that they must be made specifically for children "ages 5 and under, ages 6–8, or ages 9–11."
