Here's an overview of our dedicated approach:
    Age-Sensitive Approach

Our registration process is designed to prevent underage users from signing up without parental consent.
    • Verification and Consent: In instances where participation by children under the age of 13 is anticipated or possible, The Offseason implements measures to verify parental consent, following the strict guidelines provided by COPPA and other relevant legislation. This process ensures that parents are fully informed and can control their children's online activities.

    • Parental Rights: We strongly support parental involvement in and monitoring of their children's online activities. Parents or guardians who believe their child has provided personal information to our platform without their consent are encouraged to contact us immediately. Upon verification, we will take prompt steps to remove such information and terminate the child's account.
    • Access to Information: Parents or guardians have the right to review the personal information collected from their children and request its deletion or refuse to allow further collection or use of the information. The Offseason provides parents with the necessary tools and contact information to access their child's information and manage their preferences.
    Educating Minors and Parents
    • Safe Online Practices: The Offseason is committed to educating minors about the importance of safeguarding their privacy online. We encourage parents and guardians to discuss safe internet practices with their children, including the risks of sharing personal information online.
    • Resources and Support: Our platform offers resources for parents and guardians to understand the protections in place for children's privacy and how to leverage privacy settings and controls effectively. We are dedicated to supporting families in navigating the platform's services safely and responsibly.
    The protection of children's privacy on The Offseason is a responsibility we take very seriously.
