Its a bit late, and for that we apologise, however, even though we are a bit late we were (perhaps luckily!) not in breach of the regulations anyway. Having said that, in order to clarify our position, the above changes have been made. Its an interesting reflection on the status of the internet that as UK citizens and as a UK company we must still abide by a law of the USA… How will this work in the future if we have residents from China accessing our sites, or Russia, or where-ever. Must we abide by their rules too? Presumably yes. What happens when they are in conflict? Who arbitrates for us? A tangly mess the Internet is forming up for itself here…
As a footnote; The COPPA Helpline still never got back to me…
