Before allowing children to email their Christmas wish lists to Santa Claus, parents better watch out how the website collects and uses personal information.

The Council of Better Business Bureaus' Children's Advertising Review Unit said more than 60 domain names are registered in the name of Santa Claus this year and recommended parents check out the site before their children do.

"What we hope parents are mindful of is that any site directed at children is required to abide by pretty basic privacy rules," Linda Bean, CARU's communications director, told Consumer Ally. "That includes sites that seem so innocent and charming as a letter-to-Santa site."
