In a recent announcement, we have detailed how GDPR will affect ACC and its users. Please use this thread to post any questions you have about ACC GDPR compliance.

This is quite the change. That’s too bad it will affect existing users.

The thirty cent fee can be looked at many different ways as a parent. They may think of it as a way for the site to make money.  I know the fee already existed, but could it possibly be only required for users under thirteen? For thirteen and older, an email verification would suffice. Honestly, this site is very family friendly as it is.

Sorry if the announcement was confusing.

If you are 0-13, you will need to pay a 30-cent fee, to comply with COPPA.

If you are 13-16, you will need to provide email verification, to comply with GDPR -- no 30 cent fee will apply.

If you are 16 or older, nothing will change.

Alright. Thanks for the clarification! I was a little confused by the wording.

And just to clarify, whenever a parent of a user under 13 pays the 30 cents as required by COPPA, that money goes entirely to PayPal. ACC doesn't see a cent of it.

In fact, we actually lose money on COPPA payments nowadays. PayPal changed their pricing structure a while back so that the $0.30 flat fee is deducted after the 2.9% proportional fee, so receiving the $0.30 costs us nearly $0.31, or slightly more if the payment is coming from outside the US.

It's an entirely negligible cost compared to things like hosting fees, but the point I'm trying to make is that this is not benefiting us and we would abolish it if we could. Our confirmation fee is already much lower than many other sites - Nintendo, for example, charge $0.50, so I assume they are making a (very small) profit off it.
