Metro COPPA Policy

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), effective April 21, 2000, applies to the online collection of personal information from children under 13. The new rules spell out what a Web site operator must include in a privacy policy, when and how to seek verifiable consent from a parent and what responsibilities an operator has to protect children's privacy and safety online.

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act and Rule apply to individually identifiable information about a child that is collected online, such as full name, home address, email address, telephone number or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact the child. The Act and Rule also cover other types of information -- for example, hobbies, interests and information collected through cookies or other types of tracking mechanisms -- when they are tied to individually identifiable information

Metropolitan Swimming (Metro) adheres to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) through the following web site policy:

·       There is no advertising permitted on the Metro website

·       There is no collection of personal information on the Metro website which includes full name, home address, email address, telephone number or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact the child.

·       There is no tracking information associated with the Metro web site

·       There is no pictures of children allowed on the Metro web site

·       There is no cookies used to track your use of the Metro web site 

Metro provides a link to the policy stated above so parents of minor children are aware that Metro collects no information on its web site.
