Maggie’s Earth Adventures, LLC wants to protect YOU and YOUR safety online. There is even a law called the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act that helps us know how to keep you safe. This law is called COPPA for short. We read this law and the guidelines of the Children’s Advertising Review Unit of the Better Business Bureaus to help us know what to do.
How Does Maggie Follow The Law?
We want you to tell your parents and teachers that you are visiting www.missmaggie.org. It is important that adults know what websites you are using.
We do NOT want you to send us any personal information about you. It is never a good idea to send your full name, address, or phone number to anyone over the Internet.
If you want to send something to the Maggie website, we want your parents or teachers to send it for you from their address. We love to post your great work. We hope you will ask an adult to send it to us.
NONE of the artwork and writing from kids that we put on our site will include any information that would allow you to be identified. We will only include your first name, grade, and school.
What If There Is A Contest?
There may be a contest that you will want to enter. We will ask that your parents or your teacher enter your work in the contest. We will ask this adult to send us only your first name. We will only put this on our site. If there will be prizes given to winning students, we will ask the adult who sends in your work to send us their name and address. This way, we can send the adult your prize and they can give it to you. This is a good way for your parents to be sure that you will stay safe. Your parents can be assured that we will not share their information with anyone else. We will only use it to send prizes from Maggie!
What About Any Hot Links I See On www.missmaggie.org?
A note for teachers and parents:

We, at Maggie’s Earth Adventures, LLC, strongly support this and are committed to following the law.
