Kid's Planet User and Privacy Agreement

Parents Please Read

Kid's Planet subscribes to the law AND spirit of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We do not collect personal information about users under the age of 13, nor do we use any technology to track an individual child's usage of our site.

The physicians, nurses and companies who have created and/or sponsored Kid's Planet had the sole objective of helping to educate children suffering from spinal problems. We recommend that parents be directly involved in their children's use of Kid's Planet (and the Internet in general). Spinal disorders can be frightening and confusing to children. Parental participation plays a huge role in helping to eliminate those fears.

Parental Responsibility

We strongly urge parents to discuss the potential dangers of giving out personal information on the Internet. We do not request or require any personally identifiable information.

For Kids!

Never, EVER give out your name, address, or other personal information that would allow someone to know who you are, without asking your parents! This is potentially dangerous.

Fun Fact!

Did you know that your doctor took an oath called "The Hippocratic Oath"? It is almost 2500 years old, and is almost certainly the very first "privacy policy" in the world. An "oath" is a promise to do something, and your Doctor promised not to tell other people about you, or your condition.


Kid's Planet contains only two kinds of links to other Internet sites. Naturally we link to our parent site We also link to our partners in the development of Kids Planet (for example While in the Kid's Planet area, we maintain a clearly different appearance from the adult oriented parts of SpineUniverse, so that you can easily see that you are in our non-adult area.
