Specifically for Children under age 13:
The Federal Trade Commission's Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
of 1998 (COPPA) is intended to protect the privacy of children using the
Internet. As of April 21, 2000, many Web sites are required to obtain parental consent
before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children
Therefore, ShowdownCards.com is required by law to obtain verifiable parental consent in order to collect, use or disclose
Personal Information from visitors under the age of 13. The law applies to the ShowdownCards.com Message Board
where, as part of the registration process, username and e-mail address must be directly provided by the child.
ShowdownCards.com is prohibited from conditioning a child's participation in the message board with disclosing
more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate.
The e-mail address is used to send them a password which along with the username, allows the child to log in and post messages.
Also, registered users of the message board can be notified via e-mail of when another visitor responds to their post(s).
Registered users of the message board also have the option to receive notices from ShowdownCards.com.
In addition, children may disclose Personal Information as part of their participation on the message board.
Before a visitor under the age of 13 can register with the ShowdownCards.com Message Board,
we require the parent or guardian to give his or her verifiable consent in one of three ways:
Once we have received consent from the parent, the child's registration process is complete
and they can post messages. All visitors (including children) to the site can read messages.
Reading messages doesn't require the disclosure of any personal information.
- Printing a consent form and returning it to us by mail.
- Receive a consent form in the mail and returning it to us by mail.
- By replying to the e-mail that was generated as part of the registration process for your child.
children are not shared with third parties in a manner that will disclose the identity of any child.
Aggregate information, such as the number of registered message board participants may be shared with
third parties but at no time will personal identifying information be shared.
