New Registration Policy Change
The State of Maine has passed a new privacy law that takes effect on Sept. 12, 2009, prohibiting the collection of personal information from minors (under the age of 18), unless verifiable parental consent is obtained.
Although a motion was filed in Maine which may delay the law from taking effect on the 12th, College Media Network and its parent company are taking steps to comply with this new law.
This means there will soon be an age verification and “State of Maine” checkbox (allowing users to certify they are not a resident of the state of Maine) when users choose to subscribe to your e-mail newsletter or become users of your site.
We want to keep you posted about this new law and the impact it will have on your website. For more indepth analysis of the legislation, read what the Wall Street Journal had to say.
