What is COPPA?
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was signed into law on October 21, 1998 and is effective as of April 21, 2000. The purpose of COPPA is to regulate the online collection and use of personal information provided by and concerning children under the age of thirteen. On October 21, 1999, the Federal Trade Commission, pursuant to the requirements of COPPA, published final rules in the Federal Register implementing COPPA. The Rules set forth the specific manner in which entities are expected to comply with, and how the FTC will enforce, COPPA.
Blurty and COPPA
To address COPPA, we will no longer permit children under age 18 to use the Blurty.com service. We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but it is simply the easiest way to deal with the problem.
We do not allow new journals to be created by children under 18. However, if you are aware that your young child is using our service and would like their account terminated, please contact the site operator:
COPPA requires that site operators disclose how all personal information that we obtain is used. For that information, please consult our privacy page.
