Notice to Parents

The Folger Shakespeare Library, in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA, effective April 21, 2000), provides notice to parents of children under 13 that:

  • The Folger Shakespeare Library may collect personal information from children under 13 years of age in order to provide them with access to services and content on the Folger network;
  • The Folger may not require children under 13 to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to receive homework help or to participate in a program or activity;
  • The Folger has created a mechanism by which parents or guardians can, upon verification, review their child’s personal information, ask to have that information deleted, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of their child’s personal information.
The following is provided for your information

The Folger Shakespeare Library welcomes children to its website and encourages participation with parental consent and supervision. In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (effective April 21, 2000), the Folger would like to provide the following information.

  3. Personal information will be used only to answer reference questions (e.g., homework help) or to enable a child to participate in a Folger-sponsored educational program.
