Terms of Use for KidsDugout
KidsDugout provides a safe, fun, personalized, and informative online community for connecting players, coaches and families to the sports they love. To uphold this community, KidsDugout is committed to safeguarding our users' privacy, especially the privacy of our child users. (For the purposes of this policy a child is a person 12 years of age or younger).

KidsDugout is self governing
Since KidsDugout provides this service at no charge, there is the potential for abuses of our system. If you see any web page here that it not about youth baseball or softball ( we also permit adult leagues to use this service as well ) please report this to us by email. We will regularly go through the content of our site for abuses, but as the site grows and more people participate, the self governing system will be helpful.

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
While KidsDugout uses its own measures to protect the privacy of its child users, we are also compliant with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, otherwise known as COPPA. We have posted the KidsDugout Children's privacy policy to help both children and parents understand how a child's personal information will be treated as that child uses and enjoys the KidsDugout Web site. This policy may be modified from time to time to better address your concerns or to reflect new changes in online policy, so please check back frequently.

About the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
Whether playing, shopping, studying or just surfing, today's kids are taking advantage of all that the Web has to offer. But when it comes to their personal information online, who's in charge? In an effort to put parents in the driver's seat, the Federal Trade Commission has established new rules for Website operators to make sure that kids' privacy is protected while they're online. These rules, which went into effect on April 21, 2000, are part of the 1998 Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

The law requires that Website operators post comprehensive privacy policies on their sites, notify parents about their information practices, and obtain parental consent before collecting any personal information from children under the age of 13 or allowing kids under 13 to publicly post personal information such as on web pages, bulletin boards or chat rooms without their parent's consent. For kids, this means that they will not have free reign of all that the Web has to offer, unless their parent provides consent.

Basically, the law was enacted not to restrict Web operators from providing services and capturing useful data, but to restrict kids from releasing information about themselves that could allow a stranger to contact them.
