COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) allows parents to control the collection of information from their children below 13 years of age. The law, enforced by the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC), dictates 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. We also allow third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect Personally Identifiable Information from children under 13. To remove your child’s information, please contact Jessica Donovan or Seth Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

- Parental consent is implied when they permit their children to attend North Shore Middle School, enroll in newspaper classes, and attend NSMS Viking Voice meetings after school. Parents can withdraw consent by contacting North Shore Schools directly.
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. In accordance with Fair Information Practices we will notify you via email within 7 business days, should a data breach occur.
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
