Children's Online Privacy Protection Act Policy (COPPA)

In order to comply with the Children's Online Protection Privacy Act, Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Southeast Minnesota has a policy on how we deal with information relating to minors.

Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Southeast Minnesota has a diverse user base of military families, parents, interested non-military individuals and some aged under age 13. Some events and activities may require us to ask for pre-registration information, including information about children under age 13.

Giving an email address may be essential to contact you for some registrations or to communicate between leadership and users. However, generally, an email address or any other form of contact information is not needed to access the site.

We highly recommend that you do not give away your identity, which may include: Never agreeing to meet anyone you meet via Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Southeast Minnesota or any website suggested by Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Southeast Minnesota without seeking permission from your parents/guardians and being accompanied by a responsible adult.

Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Southeast Minnesota does not gather any information from you via cookies, except a non-identifiable cookie through Google AdSense, to gauge visitor statistics.

This policy is intended to protect children, and their parents, while using Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Southeast Minnesota, whilst still allowing them to participate as much as possible. Any information collected from any person will not be more than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity as a condition of participation.

No information collected will be disclosed to third parties, unless approved by us: if so, this will be clearly mentioned (e.g.: Specific businesses who supply services, or event chairpersons.)

This policy applies if you are 13 or under. Any user found to be falsely claiming to be an age that they are not (either older or younger than their real age), if disclosed, may be banned from further participation and your activity may be reported to your ISP or a relevant law authority, who may take further action at their discretion, if they deem it appropriate.
