Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA"), Ocean Spray will never knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without first obtaining verifiable consent from the child's parent or legal guardian.

We do not condition a child's participation in an activity on the child's disclosing more personal information than is reasonably necessary to engage in the activity. In addition, a parent may at any time review and edit any personally-identifiable information collected about their child under the age of 13, have this information deleted, and prohibit further collection or use of the child's information (although this may require the child to forfeit any prize won in a sweepstakes or contest).
