Paragraph 19 (a). Does the email plus mechanism remain a viable form of verifiable parental consent for operators’ internal uses of information?I believe that the email plus mechanism remains a viable form of verifiable parental consent. There has to be additional steps taken to ensure it is the parent who is consenting to the disclosure and not just a return e-mail that could be sent from anyone. I think that a certified copy of a parent’s signature should also be on file when using consent by letter and if using telephone confirmation, submit question and answer information that only the parent would know.
