Welcome to

Although this site is English registered, and does not have to comply with Coppa regulations, we have decided to comply fully with the Terms and Conditions of this legislation.

As Webmaster for the Witheridge Village Website's, I do herby confirm that this site will at all times abide by the terms and conditions of The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act which came into effect on April 21, 2000, and relates to the online collection of personal information from children under 13 years of age, the main points of which are summarised below.

Only those websites that directly target, and knowingly collect information from children aged 13 years or under are required to be COPPA compliant. These sites are required to post a clear and comprehensive Privacy Policy on site which clearly describes their information practices regarding the collection of any children's personal information. They are also required to provide notice to the parents of children, and with only limited exceptions, to obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting any personal information from children. Parents should also be given access to their children's personal information, and have the opportunity to  review and /or have it deleted. Parents should also be given the chance to consent to the operators collection and use of a child's information whilst at the same time prohibiting any information being made available to third parties.

No information is requested from any person using this site, but should that position change at any time, although the legal age under COPPA is under 13 years of age, this site will impose a policy that we will not knowingly collect any information from anyone under the age of 18 years.

Any information collected for whatever purpose will remain strictly confidential, see our Privacy Statement, and will be destroyed once the original purpose has been completed.
