We can be reached via email at coppa@stjude.org. Our telephone number is 901-578-2102.

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") requires that we inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use and disclose personal information from children under 13 years of age.

Information Collected

We respect the privacy of children, and do not collect any more personal information than reasonably necessary to enable them to participate in the activities we offer at our website. In fact, we are prohibited from conditioning a child's participation in an activity on the child's disclosing more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in such activity.

With respect to our online information collection practices from children under 13 years of age: When reasonably necessary to participate in an online activity, we collect the following types of personal information directly from children: first and last name, date of birth, email address, street address, phone number, gender and school name. If a child is participating as an individual, we collect their mailing address in order to fill orders of materials and incentives.

Parents may consent to the above collection and use without necessarily consenting to the disclosure of personal information to third parties.

We do not have any agreements with outside organizations to collect personal information at our site.

Use and Sharing of Information

The information we collect from children is used for record keeping and for marketing.

We do not share children's personal information with anyone other than those who provide support for the internal operations of the website and our agents (e.g., third parties who provide technical support to the website or fulfillment services).

We have received commitments for security of information from third parties with whom we share personal information to maintain security and integrity of personal information.
