Protecting Children’s Privacy
We do not intend to market to children and therefore have no intention of collecting personal information from anyone under the age of 13. Our site is a general reference with no information intended to be age specific nor inappropriate for persons of any age. We request confirmation of whether the person is under the age of 13 and indicate that they are not to provide any information without their parent or guardian’s consent. If by chance we become aware that a child under the age of 13 has submitted any of their personal information without their parent or guardian’s consent, we may respond only to request the child provide an email address of a parent or guardian for obtaining their consent. In the event a parent or guardian cannot be reached we will delete the information from our database. We encourage parents or guardians to regularly monitor and supervise their children’s on-line activities.

At any time you can change your requests and as always, elect not to receive any emails.
