The Petulant Poetess COPPA Compliance Statement


Welcome to The Petulant Poetess. Membership is given upon acceptance of our Terms of Use, which may be updated upon the whim of the Headmistress. Proper notice will be given in the news area on the front page. Please be sure to check for updates regularly. Membership is restricted to adults, since members have the option (purely voluntary) of posting personal information. We comply with COPPA guidelines.


The Petulant Poetess archive and forums are owned by notsosaintly. The archive has been established as a place to post and read stories of Harry Potter fanfiction and original fiction and poetry. The Petulant Poetess reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the service we provide, with or without notice (of course, we will try our best to notify you). By using the site, you agree that The Petulant Poetess shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service. Please be sure to keep a copy of your stories elsewhere. The Petulant Poetess is not responsible for loss of material due to server failure.


(i) Story Access: Membership with The Petulant Poetess gives full access to stories of all ratings. Stories with an M(R) or MA(NC-17) rating require membership. We do not require membership to read stories with a rating of T(PG-13) or lower.

(ii) The Petulant Poetess provides membership to any person over the age of 18 (US), 17 (UK), or the age of majority in your particular country of residence. By agreeing to this Statement, you are agreeing that you are legally an adult.

(iii) All information provided during The Petulant Poetess registration process must be accurate and belong to the person registering. You are legally responsible for the information given during the registration process. Invalid or falsified information will result in the immediate termination of membership privileges and possibly a permanent IP ban the site. Minors who falsely state that they are of the age of majority will be deleted and banned immediately.

(iv) It is your responsibility to ensure the security of your membership with The Petulant Poetess, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. The Petulant Poetess cannot and will not be liable for your failure to comply with this section. This includes, but is not inclusive to, allowing a minor to use your username and password. Serious infractions, such as the one just stated, will result in deletion and permanent banning from the site.

(v) The Petulant Poetess provides membership as a privilege. The Headmistress reserves the right to deny membership to anyone who abuses the privilege. Abuse includes, but is not inclusive to, not obeying the Terms of Use, using the contact form to harrass authors, and spamming the review or comment areas (leaving multiple and unnecessary reviews and/or comments).
