GDPR and How it Will Affect ACC
Starting on May 25th, 2018, ACC will be required to be comply with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Similar to COPPA in the United States, GDPR is a regulation that was passed that applies to all websites that process and possess data on individuals living within European countries. There are numerous changes that we must make to ensure ACC is compliant with GDPR. The most notable change that will affect our user base will be that all users below the age of 16 will be required to receive parental consent to use ACC effective May 25th, 2018. We are making this announcement ahead of time to give our users, particularly those between the ages of 13 and 16, advanced notice to the forthcoming changes.
GDPR and how it will affect ACC in a nutshell:
All users below the age of 16 will now be required to provide parental consent to use ACC.
Existing users below the age of 16 that have not provided parental consent via existing means ($0.30 COPPA donation) will be required to provide parental consent to continue to use ACC.
Users that have already received parental consent ($0.30 COPPA donation) will not be required to provide parental consent again.
Users that are 13 and older may provide parental consent via email communication.
Users below the age of 13 are still required to have a parent make a $0.30 donation as proof of consent, as per COPPA regulation.
