Collection of Information concerning Children Under 13
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) governs how information is gathered online and how it is used when communication is received from children under the age of 13. Although University Medical Center Foundation of El Paso is a non-commercial, nonprofit organization and is not subject to the COPPA, we take children's privacy and safety very seriously.
While some sections of this website may be of interest to children under the age of 13, we do not request, seek or intentionally collect personal information from children under the age of 13. We do provide online tools and services on this website, such as event registration forms, class sign-up forms, subscription forms, and contact forms, which do collect personally identifiable information. A child under age 13 may accidentally provide personal information on one of these forms. If this should happen, and we are able to determine that the sender is under the age of 13, we will not disclose any of the child's information to a third party. Should a parent discover that his/her child has submitted personally identifiable information on this website, the parent may submit a written request within sixty (60) days to the University Medical Center Foundation of El Paso webmaster, asking to have the information deleted or refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child's information.
