COPPA COMPLIANCE CONSENT

Sunstone Montessori School wants to protect the safety of children using the Site. To the extent applicable, Sunstone Montessori School complies with applicable laws and regulations, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which governs information gathering online from or about children under the age of 13. Verifiable consent from a child’s parent or guardian is required before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from a child under the age of 13.

Consistent with the requirements of COPPA, in any instance where Sunstone Montessori School asks for age and determine the user if under the age of 13, Sunstone Montessori School will require a parent or guardian email address in order to send a consent form to the parent/guardian for verifiable consent before Sunstone Montessori School collects any personal information from children under the age of 13.

Without obtaining verifiable parental consent, online contact information collected from a child is only used to respond directly on a one-time basis to a specific request from the child and is not used to re-contact the child and is not maintained in retrievable form by Sunstone Montessori School.

In addition to obtaining verifiable consent according to the process described above, Sunstone Montessori School does NOT:

  1. collect personally identifiable offline contact information of a child under age 13 without prior parental consent.
  2. provide any personally identifiable information, regardless of its source, to any third-party for any purpose whatsoever concerning our Users under 13 years of age, unless otherwise disclosed to children and their parents during the information collection process.
  3. give children under age 13 the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable contact information without prior parental consent.
  4. entice any child by the prospect of a special game, prize, or other activity to divulge more information than is needed to participate in the activity.

There are several exceptions that permit collection of a child’s e-mail address without receiving parental consent in advance:

  • To provide the parents with notice and to seek consent for communications with the child. Note: this may require collection of the parent’s e-mail address as well.
  • To protect the safety of a child who is participating on the site; i.e., in a message board
  • To protect the Website or to respond to law enforcement; i.e., in the case of a Website compromise.
