COPPA GUIDELINES

Although our site was not made for children, we understand that children who are online may find our site since we do reviews for Children’s books. Therefore, we feel that it is important to establish the fact that we will not collect any information from children under the age of 18. We will not accept giveaway entries from children under the age of 18. Of course, there is no way for us to verify someone’s age, so we are trusting children and parents in this regard.
Parents – if your child who is under 18 wishes to enter our giveaways or even wishes to comment on our site, PLEASE enter the giveaway or make a comment in behalf of your child – using your information instead of your child’s.
Children – If you are under 18 years old, PLEASE ask your parents to enter giveaways and make comments for you – using their contact information. 
We also want to ensure everyone who visits our site that we will not distribute email addresses or mailing addresses or any other information you share with us if you win a giveaway without your permission. Some of the prizes may come from publishers or authors. I will request permission before giving out your information. PLEASE do not put personal information (other than an email address if necessary) within the body of a comment.
 FTC DISCLOSURE
The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) requires us to let people know if we receive any kind of compensation for books we read for our reviews. All books reviewed her came from one of the following: the library; a book we bought; given to us as a gift; given from an author/publisher/Net Galley; or won from another site. A review, while appreciated, is not mandatory. No promise of a "good" review is ever made. All reviews are the opinion of the the blog reviewer who receives no compensation for the review.
