7 COPPA Requires A site must obtain parental consent before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information about a child Exceptions to above Respond to a one-time request from the child Provide notice to the parent Ensure the safety of the child or the site Send a newsletter or other information on a regular basis as long as parents can opt out

8 COPPA Requires Post a privacy policy on the homepage of the website and link to the privacy policy everywhere personal information is collected Allow parents to revoke their consent and delete information collected from their children Maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information collected from children

9 Privacy Policy Must Include

10 Security Considerations
Make sure you have a written privacy policy Make sure you have a media release form as a part of your privacy policy Collect as little information as possible and make sure it is stored safely Be careful of what you post online and of what you say to youth online You are responsible for everything you POST or collect online

11 Identity Theft Any request for information that comes in is to be suspect. Call your bank or credit card company first, and do not click on the link. Do not use the phone number sent in the . Any phone request for more info is also suspect. So question them first and hang up. Then call the institution to make sure they were calling (be careful of any information given out).

CNN September 14, 2006 Beware of all requests for your personal information online Criminals copy logos perfectly to trick you. Legitimate companies never send unsolicited requests for personal information. Never give out personal information unless you initiate the correspondence. Shred documents before putting them in the trash Bank statements, credit card offers, utility bills, and documents with Social Security or account numbers can be retrieved by ID thieves from your trash, so make a habit of tearing them up before tossing them. To protect yourself from identity theft: • Limit the amount of personal information you carry in your purse or wallet • Adequately protect and store personal information, documents, and records • Protect your information online by using a firewall, virus protection, and secure Internet browser • Never reveal personal information on websites, chat rooms, bulletin boards, or instant messenger profiles • Do not respond to unsolicited s or links within s • Watch your bills and credit report for suspicious activity 12 12

Only send and receive bills, checks, or other personal correspondence from a secure location. Limit the amount of personal information you carry in your purse or wallet Protect your information online by using a firewall, virus protection, and secure Internet browser Place a fraud alert on your credit If you have lost your wallet, purse, Social Security card, or passport, or suspect you are a potential victim of ID theft, contact each of the three credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union) for assistance. 13 13
