The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) in a United States federal law.

The act, effective April 21, 2000, applies to the online collection of personal information by persons or entities under U.S. jurisdiction from children under 13 years of age. It details what a website operator must include in a privacy policy, when and how to seek verifiable consent from a parent or guardian, and what responsibilities an operator has to protect children’s privacy and safety online including restrictions on the marketing to those under 13. Kersten Cattle Company values the privacy and safety of the children who use this web site. We do not collect any personal information such as names, emails, addresses or phone numbers about or from children viewing this site.

We do collect extremely limited information about children and their hobbies by photograph in as much as they attend public cattle shows and other events but we do not identify individuals at that event unless all photos taken of the children and placed on this commercial website have either:

1) the child’s face obscured and identity protected;


2) have a release signed by both a Kersten Cattle Company representative and the parent or guardian of the child appearing in the photo;


3) the parent has been informed of their right to have any photo with identifiable features of their minor child altered or removed from the site at any time for any reason.

No marketing of any kind is directed towards children at this site. All club calf offerings and contracts are made toward and with persons who have reached their majority in the state in which the transaction takes place.

All releases are kept on file with Kersten Cattle Company.
