Smoky Mountain Adventures is committed to protecting the online privacy of children. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), Smoky Mountain Adventures will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without first obtaining parental consent. Prior to providing any personally identifiable information (your name, email address, address, phone number etc.), either by placing an order for merchandise, setting up a SmokyMountainAdventures.com account, or participating in any other activity offered through the SmokyMountainAdventures.com site, children under the age of thirteen (13) must have a parent or legal guardian complete and return (by mail or fax) a Parental Consent Form to SmokyMountainAdventures.com – Smoky Mountain Adventures, 2713 Parkway Pigeon Forge, TN 37863; or by fax to: 865.429.2616.

Consent may be revoked by completing a “Smoky Mountain Adventures Revocation of Parental Consent Form” and sending it to the address or fax number above.
Please note that if a parent does not permit SmokyMountainAdventures.com’s use or collection of personally identifiable information or has instructed Smoky Mountain Adventures to delete personally identifiable information, a child’s participation in those SmokyMountainAdventures.com activities for which the personally identifiable information has been requested may not be possible. Smoky Mountain Adventures will not disclose information collected from children under the age of thirteen (13) (or from adults for that matter) to third parties unless indicated otherwise or in special cases where Smoky Mountain Adventures has reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference (whether intentionally or unintentionally) with Smoky Mountain Adventures’ rights or property or anyone else who may be harmed by such actions or if required by law. Smoky Mountain Adventures recommends that parents/guardians monitor and supervise the online activities of their children and to consider using available parental control tools which can prevent children from disclosing their name, address, and other personal information without parental permission.
