About children's online privacy
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was passed to give parents increased control over what information is collected from their children online and how such information is used. The law applies to websites and services directed to, and which knowingly collect information from, children under the age of 13.
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) restricts the collection, use, or disclosure of Personal Information from and about children under the age of 13 on the internet.
In compliance with COPPA, Baltimore County Employees Federal Credit Union (known as “Credit Union”) is committed to protecting the online privacy of the children who visit our website.
The Credit Union’s website and online services are not directed to children under the age of 13, nor is information knowingly collected from children under the age of 13.
Should the Credit Union receive information (name, address, email, account number, telephone, social security number) from a child known to be under 13, the information will only be used to respond directly to the child, seek parental consent, or provide parental notice.
The Credit Union is not responsible for the data collection and use practices of nonaffiliated third parties. For more information about the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), please visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
