Notice to Children
If you are under the age of 13 and you would like to subscribe to my newsletter, your parent or guardian must provide consent. See “Parent/Guardian Consent” below.
Notice to Parents/Guardians
DeeRomito.com complies with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA). This notice describes my practice for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from and about children under the age of 13. A parent or guardian’s consent is required in order to collect this information. Instructions on how to give consent are listed below. If you have any questions about these policies and practices, you may contact me by email at Dee@DeeRomito.com. For more information about COPPA and your child’s right to online privacy, visit http://www.coppa.org/comply.htm.
Before personal information is collected from a child, a parent or guardian of the child must receive notice of the operator's information practices and consent to those practices.
I will not collect information from or about a child under age 13 unless I receive a parent’s or guardian’s consent.
You may grant consent by emailing me at Dee@DeeRomito.com and requesting that your child be added to my mailing list. I will then send you a confirmation that I’ve received it. Please include the following:
I, _________________, am the parent/legal guardian of _________________. I give my consent to allow my child to subscribe to Dee’s News & Notes. I understand that I may revoke consent at any time.
Please send the newsletter to this email address _______________________.
Today’s date is _______________.
(If you’d prefer not to give your child’s first and/or last name, you may adjust it to say “parent/legal guardian of the child whose email address is below.)
Revoking Consent and Deleting Information
At any time, a parent or guardian may ask to review their child’s personal information, direct me to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child’s information. To do so, please contact me at Dee@DeeRomito.com.
Information I Collect
The information I collect includes your child’s email address, and may include his/her first and/or last name which is optional information. I will not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the newsletter subscription.
How I Use the Information
I use the information about your child to send a monthly newsletter through Mail Chimp (MailChimp, 512 Means Street, Suite 404, Atlanta, GA 30318 USA, firstname.lastname@example.org.) I will not disclose your child’s information to any other third party without your authorization, except as may be required by law.
