A good reminder as we move collectively into the new school year involves a referral to the Michigan Children's Protection Registry, which is also available by clicking through the lower left of the Taylor School District's home page at www.taylorschools.net.
Along with e-mail addresses, registration of instant messenger IDs, mobile phone numbers, and fax numbers is now available. Michigan residents may register any of these addresses at no cost if a child may have access to them.
The Michigan Children's Protection Registry is a secure database of protected e-mail addresses and other electronic contact points such as: fax numbers, mobile phone numbers (SMS), and instant messenger IDs. It allows Michigan's parents and schools to register electronic contact points that children may access.
Children are forbidden from purchasing certain products and services under Michigan law. Once an e-mail address or electronic contact point has been registered, senders of messages that advertise or link to prohibited products or services are required to remove the contact point from their mailing lists within 30 days.
Contact point registrations are effective for three years or until the youngest child with access to the contact point reaches the age of 18. Registrations may be renewed at any time for an additional three-year period.
ATTENTION SENDERS:Please visit https://www.ProtectMIChild.com/compliance.html to verify whether you are required to comply with the Michigan Children's Protection Registry law. Marketers that ignore the law's requirements face up to three years in jail as well as civil and criminal penalties.
It's a good website to consider as you and your child enters the 2014-15 school year.
