On my personal/hobby website I have an extensive COPPA (Children's
Online Privacy Protection Act) compliance statement. You can see it at
As part of a discussion with another person, I realized that I might
have overlooked a requirement (GAD!).
COPPA requires, in part, that I link to a notice of the information
practices with regard to children at each area on the website where
personal information is collected from children.
I have such disclosures and links on my Snippets (newsletter) page,
Guestbook, Email contact and RingSurf data collection pages.
See, as examples:
For WebGuard, however, I do not have such a link.
I do have a disclosure link at
But I do not have a disclosure link at
AND, I do not ask for age of the registrant.
I am now exploring the best way to add such a disclosure link and to ask
for the age in order to comply with COPPA.
Question: would it be useful to do it in such a way that others could
use it also? That is, should I address this as a peculiar need of my
site? Or should I try to "enhance" Ringlink?
