FAQ: Why Does Wandoo Reader Require Certain Registration Fields?

Question: Wandoo Reader requires birth date for registration in a program? My library doesn't want to track birth date. Why does the program require that field for all registrants?

Answer: Wandoo Reader requires patrons to input their birth date to determine if the patron is under or over the age of 13.  This is to provide protection to those patrons who are under the age of 13, and to ensure Wandoo Reader continues to be compliant with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).  Any patron participating in a program that allows children under the age of 13, will not have the ability to share their logs and completed challenges via social media (Facebook, Google+ and Twitter).
