The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that we inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information from children under 13 years of age; and that we obtain the consent of parents and guardians in order for children under 13 years of age to use certain features of ClubHALO.

Are there third parties that collect personal information?

In order to verify the age of users entering ClubHALO, we use an Age Estimation Portal through Yoti as a step to join the platform after proving appropriate age to meet the threshold of under the age of 19. Yoti’s process on collecting and immediately deleting personal information is listed under the “How does the Age Verification process work?” section.

Users may have the option to use Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn to log in to the platform, but HALO does not have access to that information as it is used as a vehicle to access ClubHALO.

In the future, ClubHALO may partner with other parties for the purpose of redeeming rewards and receiving physical prizes. In these instances, users would need to enter a shipping address in order to receive the rewards earned. As of right now, we are not partnered with any third parties in this regard.


How do children get access to ClubHALO?

Through the registration process on, users will use Yoti’s Age Verification Portal, which is designed to give ClubHALO Administrators proof of relevant age for potential ClubHALO users without sharing any personal information with HALO. After registration completion and age verification, users will then be able to access the platform on

How does the Age Verification process work?

Yoti acts as a data minimizing tool between the user and HALO. The process works like the following:

  • The user proves their age using ClubHALO’s preferred age checking method (Age Estimation or ID Verification).
  • Yoti determines the user’s age and deletes their personal information.
  • HALO receives either an ‘over’ or ‘under’ result.
  • No personally identifiable information is shared with HALO. Yoti deletes the user’s personal information as soon as the result of the age check is shared with HALO.

The Age Estimation program analyzes a face scan, or selfie, to make sure the image is of a real person, and not a 2D image, mask or bot. This captures multiple images and by Yoti’s age estimation technology will determine the user’s age. Yoti will then calculate if the user is within the threshold of ClubHALO’s age requirement, 18 years and under. Yoti deletes the image as soon as the age range is given. The information we collect from you is for the purpose of determining whether you are the right age to access ClubHALO safely.

The ID Verification program extracts the date of birth data source from the ID document to calculate the age of the user. Users between the ages of 13 and 18 may use this method to prove their age, fitting within the ClubHALO age requirement of 18 years and under.


Yoti uses cookies for security purposes. These are first-party cookies that do not hold any identifiable information. You can read more about Yoti’s Age Verification Privacy Policy here. See below for more resources for Yoti:

What information do we collect?

Users will directly provide the following personal information during the ClubHALO registration process and continuously through the platform from the child and/or parent/guardian:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Birth date
  • Time Zone
  • Interests & Hobbies

If we find that we have collected information from a child in a manner that violates the provisions of COPPA, we will either delete the information or promptly seek the parents’ approval for that collection.

How is this information used?

Personal information, such as time zone and hobbies, is used to better target activities to the child along with allowing the child to make information accessible for other ClubHALO members through public discussion posts that are moderated by ClubHALO Administrators. Parental/Guardian approved email address is used for log-in purposes, announcements of new content, reminders, and communication directly with ClubHALO Administrators. At any time, users and/or guardians can opt out of receiving emails from ClubHALO by contacting ClubHALO Administrators. A shipping address is used for any rewards being redeemed and needing to be shipped to a location and is not collected by third parties.

ClubHALO does not allow for participants to directly message other ClubHALO participants. The direct message feature is only available between ClubHALO Administrators and ClubHALO participants for the purpose of answering ClubHALO-related questions and concerns.

What are my parental rights?

ClubHALO will not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity. For the protection of the user, parental/guardian consent is required for the collection, use, and disclosure of information entered directly from the user. After completing the registration, including age estimation, an email will be sent to the email linked to the ClubHALO account. Upon receiving this email, a parent/guardian will need to verify consent prior to ClubHALO Administrators admitting the child into the platform. As it relates to ClubHALO Chapters, a parent/guardian must submit their consent directly to the ClubHALO Chapter Coordinator who will pass along the consent to a ClubHALO Administrator.

In accordance with the rules of COPPA, we shall request a parent or guardian’s email address before collecting any personal information from a child on any child-targeted application, or in any situation where we inquire for age and conclude the user is age 12 or younger. If you suspect your child is participating in a personal information-gathering activity and you or another parent/guardian has not received an email offering notice or requesting your approval, please contact us at [email protected]. Any and all inquiries from a parent/guardian may be directed to [email protected], as well.

At any time, parents/guardians can refuse to permit HALO to collect further personal information from their child and can request that any personal information HALO has collected be deleted from ClubHALO.

We use two methods to allow parents to access, change, or delete the personally identifiable information that we have collected from their child.

  1. A parent can access, change, or delete their child’s personal information by logging on to the ClubHALO account using the parental-approved email and password.
  2. A parent can contact a ClubHALO Administrator to access, change, or delete the personal information that HALO has collected from their child by sending an email to [email protected]. Please include the ClubHALO child’s name and parent-approved email address in the email so that we can better assist you with your inquiry or request. Parents may also call the HALO office at 816-472-4256 and/or request a video call with the ClubHALO Administrator.

Parents/guardians can agree to the collection and use of their child’s information, but still not allow disclosure to third parties unless that’s part of the service.

If a parent/guardian does not consent within a reasonable time, ClubHALO will delete the parent’s online contact information, along with the ClubHALO account linked to the email address, from our records.
