Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act

What Is COPPA?

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) is a United States federal law, located at 15 U.S.C. §§ 6501–6506 (Pub.L. 105–277, 112 Stat. 2581-728, enacted October 21, 1998).

The act, effective April 21, 2000, applies to the online collection of personal information by persons or entities under U.S. jurisdiction from children under 13 years of age. It details what a website operator must include in a privacy policy, when and how to seek verifiable consent from a parent or guardian, and what responsibilities an operator has to protect children’s privacy and safety online including restrictions on the marketing to those under 13. While children under 13 can legally give out personal information with their parents’ permission, many websites altogether disallow underage children from using their services due to the amount of work involved.


FundTube respects the privacy of children, and does not collect any personal information of children. In fact, parents are the only persons empowered, by FundTube‘s TOU’s and COPPA legislation, to post information regarding their child’s participation in school activities with enough information than is reasonably necessary to participate in FundTube fundraising services.

Parents uploading content to of their child’s participation in school events is strongly encouraged to list only their child’s name, school name and event name in “Event Description” for inviting their friends and family to view for a school donation.
