If you are under 18 years of age you should not be on our site. 


As stated in our User Agreement, Small Cap Directory™ web sites, products and services are not intended for children under the age of 18 and we do not knowingly solicit or accept personal or other information from children under the age of 18.  However, we recognize the difficulties in policing online behavior (particularly of children) and we understand that children can sometimes gain access to web sites without the permission of the site’s owners and without the permission of the child’s own parents.  You should know that we take very seriously the safety of children and the concerns of responsible parents.  Therefore, we make every effort to be in compliance with the Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), though technically, COPPA may not apply to our site (please see COPPA NOTE below). 


Contact Information for Concerned Parents


If you are a parent or legal guardian and discover that your minor child has registered with our site, you may contact us at admin@MarketCapDirectory.com to notify us of your child’s unauthorized participation in our online service and request that his or her account be terminated and all information collected and otherwise related to your child’s account be permanently deleted, as per COPPA. 




The following information appears on the FTC web site “FAQ” page for COPPA (the Child Online Privacy Protection Act).  Based on the discussion excerpted below, we at Small Cap Directory™ do not believe that the COPPA applies to our site.  However, as noted above, out of an abundance of caution and a genuine concern for the welfare and safety of all children, we make every reasonable effort to comply with COPPA.  To learn more about COPPA click here.


Q. COPPA applies to "websites directed to children." What factors should I use to determine whether my website is targeted to children?


A. According to the Rule, the factors to use in determining whether your site is targeted to kids include subject matter, language, whether the site uses animated characters, and whether advertising on the site is directed to children. The Commission also considers empirical evidence regarding the ages of the site's visitors. These standards are similar to those for TV, radio and print advertising.




Small Cap Directory™ may update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your Small Cap Directory™ account, to your private message inbox or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
