Appointed Time Press, LLC
Here at Appointed Time Press, LLC we respect your “right to be forgotten” per GDPR compliance. The Right to be Forgotten is defined as a permanent deletion of all your information within our files, database, systems, and third-party providers. We honor all requests without question once verification is achieved. All such requests are permanent, irrevocable, and absolute. We are here to serve you with integrity and excellence. If you would like to present such a request, we require your first name and email address to perform that process accurately and in a timely manner. All such requests are contingent upon the accuracy of your information provided. Therefore, if you have more than one email address registered, or have used an alias, please submit a separate request for each.
Please carefully read and follow the instructions below. Please note there are two types of requests:
I. Self-Appointed Request
II. COPPA Request for Permanent Deletion of a Minor
I. Self-Appointed Request
Your request will be sent directly to our Data Controller via an internal company email generated by our own website server. This request is NOT handled by a third-party. This is a double opt-out form, which means it must be confirmed by you so we can process this information legally and accurately. Once you fill out this form, you will receive an email from us requesting your confirmation. Please reply with “CONFIRM” and we will begin processing your request immediately.
All personal data, information, correspondence, and any shared files that are not legally binding related to and/or connected to your name and email address will be PERMANENTLY deleted. That includes our internal database, systems, files, and any third-parties with whom we do business in performing operations that process our customers data on our behalf. Please allow 72 hours from the time of your confirmation for a completion of that process. Please understand this process to be final, irrevocable, and absolute. There will be no further data retention or retrieval. Please understand, this is not the same as hitting our “unsubscribe” button within our automated emails, which simply removes you from our email list.
This email will be the last time you EVER hear from us until you subscribe or contact us again. Please know that you are always welcome back in the future. Thank you.
II. COPPA Request for Permanent Deletion of a Minor
We strive to actively abide by COPPA (the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act instituted by the Federal Trade Commission) in the most judicious manner possible. Our website is rated “G” for general audiences. We do NOT target minors under the age of 13. In an effort to mitigate risk, we require an attestation of age on all our website forms, requiring individuals to be at least 18 years of age, which is that of a legal adult in the United States of America. Our content is exclusively Christian. However, there are times when it may be subjectively considered “mature”. When content is mature, or possibly perceived as inappropriate for those under the age of 13, we provide prefacing statements and appropriate notifications on all such content so parents and guardians can take appropriate action without delay. Such content includes topics on marriage, sex, historical genocide, cultural issues, current events, and the like. We always strongly encourage parents to preside over the content their children are viewing, listening to, or engaging with online. Regardless of age appropriate material, we understand and respect that there are many reasons why a parent or guardian may not want their child viewing our material online. We appreciate you making the said minor known to us and we are happy to honor your request in taking immediate action.
LEGAL ATTESTATION: To all those who are representing a minor 13 years of age or younger, you may submit a request for the deletion of a minor if you are the parent, legal guardian, or custodian of the said minor. Attestation is legally required. Please understand, your attestation is a legal statement of your relationship to the minor for the request being made, which must then be verified via email within 30 days. We keep records of all such attestations on file indefinitely. However, the records of the said minor will be permanently deleted from all our systems and files without question once verification is achieved. We DO NOT contact the minor for such verification.
REQUIRED DOCUMENTS & LEGAL REPRESENTATION: If you require documentation and records of the minor’s conduct, correspondence, or permissions given to our company or communicated with our website, we require appropriate and verifiable legal notice with corresponding documents such as a warrant or court order from your lawyer or their firm. All correspondence and cooperation will be handled by our legal team. Do not submit a requisition for deletion via our portal, as those deletions are permanent and irreversible.
BLOCKING THE MINOR’S IP ADDRESS: With your request for deletion, we offer you the option of having the captured IP address of the said minor PERMANENTLY blocked so they cannot make further contact with our website portal. However, if that IP is also designated for your own device, we do not suggest such blocks be made should you wish to correspond with us.
ACCURATE AND COMPLETE IDENTIFIERS: Once the process is completed we will send you an official statement of verification to the email you provided. Please keep all records of correspondence with our company. If we were unable to process your request successfully, we will notify you via email accordingly. Success is contingent upon matching records by two identifiers: (1) the name and (2) the email. Please make sure the spelling of the name and email are accurate prior to submitting your request. If the minor has used an alias or code name, or another email of which you are unaware, we will not be able to process your request successfully. Spelling, punctuation, and letter casing must be precise when properly identifying an individual.
FALSE IDENTIFIERS: If you have submitted a request for deletion that has not been successful, it is very likely you’ve submitted false identifiers for the minor in question. If you are certain they have submitted information to us that you want deleted, please be aware these are often tech savvy individuals who conceal their identities with code names, avatars, and aliases of various kinds. They can use more than one email or name in differing combinations across media platforms. Again, two matching identifiers are required to delete data accurately. If you suspect they’ve submitted more than one combination, you will need to submit separate requests for each. We encourage you to be patient, as this process can be lengthy and complicated. Please be aware that submitting identifiers of which you are not absolutely certain, could result in a deletion of someone else’s registration or account with us, for which you would then be held legally responsible.
INVESTIGATIONS: We do not perform investigations. We are not legally obligated to honor COPPA requests for minors over the age of 13. As with all requests for deletion, COPPA requests are handled directly by our Data Controller.
QUESTIONS: If you have further questions about how we handle a known/reported minor’s information please stop and contact us prior to filling out this form. We would be happy to assist you.
If you have questions about COPPA specifically, or how to handle a minor who is over the age of 13, please visit the government website:
