Section 1. Expectation of Privacy

COPPA, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, applies to individually identifiable information about a child that is collected online, such as full name, home address, email address, telephone number or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact the child. The Act and Rule also cover other types of information -- for example, hobbies, interests and information collected through cookies or other types of tracking mechanisms -- when they are tied to individually identifiable information.
At this time, RIM requires parental consent for children under the age of 13 to register or provide other information to RIM through the use of the internet website, www.therugbychannel.tv.
