COPPA compliance acknowledgement and public disclosure

Post by schnautzr on Wed May 26, 2010 10:14 am

The terms set forth below are subject to change, so please be sure to review them once annually.

In accordance with COPPA (U.S. Title 15, Chapter 91, §6501-6506), private messaging, email, website, instant messaging, and Spore profile links are not made available to any user of this forum, including the administrators.

An email address is required upon registration, and this is stored in a database, but we are unable to purge this information from the database. Because it is stored permanently until your account is deleted, we have modified the forum so that email addresses cannot be accessed readily by administrators.

We recognize that this nonpublic information is confidential and assure you that we will not review these email addresses. We assure you that we are maintaining its security, confidentiality, and integrity.

1. Where "administrating user" represents all members of this forum with access to the administrative panel, regardless of nationality

2. Where "member" refers to all entities who have registered an account with the forum

3. Where "forum" refers to all content located at the subdomain http://bonebed.forumotion.net/, regardless of whether the content is accessed from that URL or another URL

4. Where "reasonable effort" means the administrating user will not:
i. attempt to view contact information of members
ii. review the list of email accounts associated with members
iii. make any intention to gain access to contact information of members
iv. disclose contact information of any member or quantities of member contact information to any entity
v. request contact information from members under 13 or without verifiable consent from parents, such as a signed email from the parent of the member
vi. grant anyone access to the administrative panel who does not agree to be bound by these terms or who poses a reasonable threat as a violation to these terms
vii. alter any administrative panel options which could jeopardize the security, confidentiality, or integrity of contact information

5. Where "administrative panel" refers to all content located within the site http://bonebed.forumotion.net/admin/, regardless of whether the content is being displayed from that URL or another URL.

6. Where "contact information" includes any and all means for contacting a member directly that are submitted by the member, including, but not limited to:
i. email address
ii. physical address (residence, work, school, etc.)
iii. phone number
iv. instant messaging id
v. links to personal websites or profiles on other websites
vi. links to send an internal private message
vii. guestbook pages
viii. name, including
a) real name
b) username for another website or service

ALL ADMINISTRATING USERS MUST MAKE A REASONABLE EFFORT TO MAINTAIN THE SECURITY, CONFIDENTIALITY, AND INTEGRITY OF CONTACT INFORMATION PROVIDED BY MEMBERS.

By posting "I agree" below, the user accepts the terms laid out above and promises to conform to them. Failure to follow this policy may violate laws in some areas, including but not limited to the United States and its territories, and will result in penalties to be established based upon the level of the violation. (Note: even though this thread is locked, anyone who this agreement applies to should be able to post here with minimal problems.)

***YOU MUST AGREE TO THESE TERMS IF YOU ARE AN ADMINISTRATING USER AS DEFINED IN SECTION 1 OF THIS POLICY. FAILURE TO AGREE WILL JEOPARDIZE YOUR ADMINISTRATIVE USER RIGHTS. IF YOU DISAGREE, SAY SO, AND WE WILL DETHRONE YOU PROMPTLY.***

United States law requires the Bone Bed displays this policy in a public and conspicuous place.
