Snorklewhip from ToontownHall suggested I should add this, and I agree please read.

C.O.P.P.A.

As of late, the staff here at the Hall has noticed several violations in regards to lying about age. We would like to take this opportunity to explain to everyone what COPPA is and why it is so important to all of us.

COPPA stands for Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act. Here is a link to the actual law itself: http://www.coppa.org/coppa.htm Upon reading it, you can see this is an actual law with serious consequences should it be violated. As we here at the Hall fall precisely into the category of “Operator”, it is critical that we follow this law to the very letter. Not only because it is the law, and serious repercussions could ensue from violations, but also because we care. Many of us on staff are parents ourselves, and look at all the “kids” here on this site in the same way we would see our own. We want to laugh with you, but also to protect you as much as we can.

We must take action when we find or even suspect a COPPA violation, as it is so serious. Accounts will be put on hold until age is clarified and parental permission obtained, should it be required. This is something that we must, by law, do. No one should feel singled out, or picked on in any way, that’s never the case. We have this site here for all of us to enjoy, and every individual voice is heard and cherished, we would never want to see that silenced.

However, enough COPPA violations and the Hall could be taken from us all. Here is a link to an article about another site with many violations: http://www.internetnews.com/bus-news/article.php/3631131 Upon reading this, you can see that those in charge are aggressive in the pursuit of the safety of kids online, and so they should be. We can do no less, for the survival of the Hall, and for the safety of you all.

Thank you for your cooperation.
