COPPA[edit]

Not intentionally being rude but I like how the US are profitting from children using websites :P I've never heard of this before, it's completely different to how the UK treat online users! - MerrytonRyan 19:51, 23 January 2011 (EST)

The $0.30 donation is actually just what ACC requires for verification. An email or fax with a parent's signature is all that's legally required under federal law. --Jake 20:00, 23 January 2011 (EST)
Indeed but from what I read on the COPPA details they worry that an email isn't enough as it can be easily falsified, and sending a scanned copy of a parents signature can easily be falsified too under that logic, under 13s are smart little beggars :P It's interesting they've taken this form of action to tackle children using the internet. Over here we have the "Data Protection Act" which covers everyone, from children to the elderly, so any sharing of personal data (by a company, not an individual) is illegal. Children just have to sign T&Cs and parents have to moderate what their children get up to :) - MerrytonRyan 20:09, 23 January 2011 (EST)
