What is COPPA and how does it affect my account?

Post by Neamara » Sat Nov 21, 2015 4:29 pm

Here is an explanation.
COPPA is the Childrens' Online Privacy Protection Act. This federal (nation-wide) regulation requires us to have parent/guardian permission (with an actual signature) for any WolfQuest member in the United States who is younger than 13 years old. We are required to participate in this act because we ask for everyone's e-mail address when they create an account. (For more details, feel free to visit the COPPA site at http://www.coppa.org/coppa.htm.
Players who have registered a COPPA account will be restricted to phrase chat across all multiplayer gameplay modes to ensure their safety.

Due to federal regulations, we are required to have parent/guardian permission for any WolfQuest member in the United States who is younger than 13 years old. Please review the instructions posted here- http://wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=77763.
