Please modify your software so that it is in compliance with COPPA rules. We are not allowed to collect email addresses of minors without written permission of the parent.
Right now the software is violating federal law.
The system needs to prescreen subscribers and those under 13 can not have persional information stored in the database. Its ok to mail them a password but we can not store any persional information about them, including the email address.
I have modified my signup screens in my copy to send minors to another screen telling them they can not subscribe but this is only a work arround.
We need a special minor subscription level built in the software that way minors can make post but we will not have any persional info on them..
