Compliance with COPPA

BBB seeks to abide by federal regulations known as COPPA (“Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act”). This law requires operators of web sites and online services such as mobile apps, network-connected games, online purchasing, VOIP services, Internet-enabled gaming platforms, and location services to provide notice and obtain parent’s consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13.

In order for your child to use the BBB Student Video Contest website to participate in BBB’s Student Video Contest, certain personal identifying information, generally the student’s name and email address, must be provided to BBB and the web site administrator.  BBB may also collect data that is not personally identifiable to track website effectiveness, traffic and other analytics.

To comply with federal law, this form shall constitute formal parental notification and formal parental consent for your child to provide personal identifying information to BBB and its vendors for the purpose of facilitating participation in the BBB Student Video Contest.


Credit Card Verification

Federal law allows BBB to obtain verifiable parental consent by requiring the parent, in connection with a monetary transaction, to use a credit card, debit card, or other online payment system that provides notification of each discrete transaction to the primary account holder.

For verification purposes, so that your child may participate in the BBB Student Video Contest your credit or debit card will be charged a nominal fee of $1.00 to cover processing fees associated with the transaction. Any remainder will be used to facilitate the contest or for prizes associated with the contest.
