We strive to be fully compliant with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and strongly encourage parents and guardians to regularly monitor and supervise their children’s online activities.

If you are a parent or guardian of a child under 13 years old, you provide your verifiable parental consent for our collection of such child’s personally identifiable information on the System and further evidence such consent by paying for Services on the System.
We do not require your child to provide more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to use the applicable Services or portion of the System. Furthermore, if you would like to review personally identifiable information about your child that we have on file, or request that certain information be changed or deleted, please send an e-mail to email@example.com or call us at +49 15165218064.
If a child under the age of 13 has provided personally identifiable information on the System without the consent of his or her parent or guardian, we ask that a parent or guardian send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at +49 15165218064, and we will delete the child’s personally identifiable information from our files.
