The Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA) and CSG
Columbus School for Girls (CSG) provides our students with carefully selected web-based tools and applications for learning. The following information applies to CSG students under the age of 13 in the use of these tools and educational resources according to the federal regulations included in the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. (COPPA)
In order for our students to use these programs and services, certain personal identifying information, generally the student’s name and CSG email address must be provided to the web site operator. Under federal law, these websites must provide parental notification and obtain parental consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13.
The law permits schools such as CSG to consent to the collection of personal information on behalf of all its students, thereby eliminating the need for individual parental consent given directly to the website operator.
