We understand the importance of protecting children’s privacy in the interactive world. We are a general audience service and do not use the Sites to knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13) that requires parental notice and consent under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) without such parental consent. If you are a child under 13 years of age, you are not permitted to use the Sites and should not send any information about yourself to us through the Sites.

In the event that we become aware that we have collected personal information from any child, we will dispose of that information in accordance with COPPA and other applicable laws and regulations. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe that your child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information without COPPA-required consent, please contact us via the Contact JewishBoston page.

  • your physical or electronic signature
  • identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled
