If you are under the age of 13, we kindly ask that you get your parent(s) or guardian(s) to review this Policy and to contact us with any questions at [email protected]. We cannot collect or use your information without their approval.
Please be assured that Little League will only use your information in accordance with this Policy.
NOTICE TO PARENTS OF CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE
Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), we will never knowingly request personal information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. As a policy, no person under the age of 13 is permitted without parental authorization to register to receive Little League’s electronic communications or interact with Little League’s Platform.
For parents and guardians, we urge you to repeatedly discuss with your children the risks of giving personal information to anyone (online or in person) whom they do not personally know. We also encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children monitoring and reviewing their children’s online activity. For additional tips on how to help children stay safe on the internet, we recommend the following site: Consumer.ftc.gov/features/feature-0002-parents.
Parents and guardians have the right to request a description of the types of personal information collected, to revoke their consent (including to our use and maintenance of already collected data in addition to termination of future collection), and to obtain the personal information collected from their child(ren). To exercise your rights under COPPA, please contact us via email [email protected]. Please be advised that for every such request, we must verify the identity of the requesting party. When a parent or guardian revokes consent, we will stop collecting, using, or disclosing information from that child. We will not collect more personal information from children under 13 than is necessary for them to participate on our Platform. In addition, be aware that all sites that are targeted to children under 13 are prohibited by law from collecting more information than is necessary.
