Your posting on the List Server over the week-end makes me wonder whether

your site complies with the federal Child On-Line Privacy Protection Act. I

suspect your site cannot screen out participants who are under 13 and so you

may be in violation. If you need more information about COPPA, I understand

the Federal Trade Commission has a bulletin you can access through a web

site it maintains. If you haven't considered the impact of COPPA on your

site, you should do so immediately to avoid any legal problems.

Has anyone researched this can we refuse 13 year olds from using a site and do you think by posting a Privacy Notice on the Web Site will solve the perceived problem.
