    Arrow COPPA Laws and Forum Safety

    For the safety of all of our users, if you are under the age of 13, you MUST have a parent register for you. If Webkinz Addictz finds out that birth date information is falsified, you will receive a permanent ban - no exceptions.

    COPPA Stands for Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act

    All Websites Are Required to Follow COPPA Laws

    Here are the COPPA Law Rules. These are not just forum rules - they are Federal Law:


    NO ONE under the age of 13 can:

    1. Tell or post their age ANYWHERE on the forum or chat
    2. Tell or post their locations (city that you live in)
    3. Tell or post their school name
    4. Tell or post their real first or last name
    5. Tell or post ANY form of personal information at all
    6. Post pics or links to pictures of themselves on the forum or in chat
    7. Post their age in their profile



    No child under 13 may post personal info about themselves such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or age. While the rules state no child under 13, we want everyone to be safe here at Webkinz Addictz so, if you are over the age of 13, please do not post any information other than your first name ONLY!! (Includes NO posting of your age or grade you are in school. This is for your safety!)

    NOTE: While you do need to put in your e-mail while registering, it is only to receive your e-mails from Webkinz Addictz, and only Administrators can view this information.


    If you have any questions at all whether something is appropriate or not, or any questions on COPPA please contact an administrator or moderator. Thanks!!
