Dear Parent/Teacher/Facilitator/Small Group Leader:
Pilgrim’s Rock LLC is using Moodle software https://courses.pilgrimsrock.com to present and teach online courses we offer as part of our Services. The privacy of your family, homeschool co-op, church youth group, church small group, or other small group’s information is very important to us. Pilgrim’s Rock, LLC will only collect and retain enough personal information to register a child/student/participant for a course, bill or record payment for the course, and allow communication with the parent, teacher/facilitator, or small group leader on matters related to the course.
Congress enacted the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in 1998. COPPA required the Federal Trade Commission to issue and enforce regulations concerning children’s online privacy. The Commission’s original COPPA Rule became effective on April 21, 2000. The Commission issued an amended Rule on December 19, 2012. The amended Rule will become effective on July 1, 2013.
COPPA governs online resources offered to children. Because the children/students/participants may be either under 13 years of age (this form is required) or under 18 years of age (this form is suggested), your children/students/participants’ access to Moodle software and the Services provided by Pilgrim’s Rock, LLC requires your permission. We are requesting your permission for your children/students/participants to fully participate and use all services and features of Moodle software and the Services provided by Pilgrim’s Rock, LLC.
If you do NOT APPROVE or CONSENT to your children/students/participants/parent/teacher/facilitator/small group leader’s use of all Services and software used to provide Services, you must contact Pilgrim’s Rock LLC in writing via email: firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for a refund of the course you purchased per the terms of the refund policy. Your children/students/participants/parent/teacher/facilitator/small group leader will not be invited to begin a course until you have read and agreed to:
a) The COPPA Small Group Consent
b) The Terms and Conditions of Service
and your electronically signed, dated small group consent form below has been received and is on file with Pilgrim’s Rock, LLC.
Some of the features of the Moodle software will enable your children/students/participants/parent/teacher/facilitator/small group leader to share personal information, we encourage you to monitor and supervise all internet activities during his/her/their use of Services and the Moodle software offered/provided by Pilgrim’s Rock, LLC. You may, for example, want to set rules for your children/students/participants about whom they can talk to and what general discussion topics are appropriate, and what personal information, if any, is appropriate to share. Please teach and remind your children/students/participants to be cautious regarding the posting of personal information such as name, telephone number or e-mail on any website.
