You probably know that the Internet goes everywhere and connects to almost everyone. That’s why you never know who’s going to read what you post and also why your privacy is so important to you...and me. I don’t exactly understand this stuff, but there are lots of laws and regulations. Two if them are the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

These laws and regs—Hey! I could mix those two words together and call them “legs”!—are really complicated. They say that if I (Cheesie) keep or transfer to anyone else personal information I get from anyone (including children under 13…kids like you), I have to do all sorts of reports and junk to make it legal.

Well, I don’t keep or transfer any of that personal info. This includes email addresses on comments you send me. After I answer you, I trash your email address. Sorry. That’s what COPPA makes me do.

And by the way, you should never include any personal information—phone number, home address, name of your school, email address, etc.—in your comments. And finally, if your parents, teachers, or anyone else really want to know more about my privacy policies, please look below for a huge bunch of details my lawyer (can you believe I have a lawyer?!) made me put on my website.
