Are there any regulations against offering an email based newsletter to customers that will advise them of upcoming promotions within the bank? They do not get any special rates and they must sign up and if they decide they no longer wish to receive the e-newsletter they can simply contact the bank to unsubscribe. I don't see any problems. Do you?

You might want to make sure that you specify ages to avoid COPPA issues.

What do you mean? I need to say that all ages are welcome?

If you operate a commercial Web site or an online service directed to children under 13 that collects personal information from children or if you operate a general audience Web site and have actual knowledge that you are collecting personal information from children, you must comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

Ok. We have a survey on our website for customers and non-customers alike. Do we need to have something that you have to click that says that you are over the age of 13 before they are able to click on the link to access the survey?
