Privacy for Children – As per COPA
Although PCMech generally targets to an adult audience, we welcome the visitation and participation of young users, with their parents’ consent. It is strongly recommended that users under the age of 13 refrain from disclosing any personal and/or private information either through the user registration system, or through participation in questionnaires and surveys, and instead opt to remain anonymous in their participation of site activities.
Please note that as of April 21st, 2000, the Child Online Protection Act of 1998 prohibits PCMech from the collection of private information from users under the age of 13 without parental consent. Users under the age of 13 must provide a signed letter from their parents to indicate that they are aware of their child’s activities on PCMech and consent to these activities. This letter must be mailed to Mechler Enterprises, LLC, using the contact information below, before they can participate in activities requesting the disclosure of private information.
Parents of our younger users may at any time, revoke their consent, and may request to review and edit the private information disclosed by sending a written request to Mechler Enterprises, LLC, via mail.
Though PCMech will take reasonable measures to ensure that users under the age of 13 do not disclose their private information without first obtaining parental consent, the site cannot guarantee the protection of young users who choose not to disclose their age and who do not follow the requirements set forth by COPA.
