NOTICE REGARDING CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
The Site is a general audience site for adults age 18 or over, and is intended for use by individuals in the United States. The Site is not designed or intended for use by persons under the age of 18.
In response to concerns about protecting children’s privacy online, Congress enacted the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), which sets forth rules and procedures governing the ways in which websites may collect, use and disclose any personal information for children under the age of 13. In accordance with COPPA regulations, we do not (1) request or knowingly collect personal information from users under 13 years of age; or (2) knowingly use or share personal information from users under 13 years of age with third parties.
It is possible that by fraud or deception we may receive information given to us or pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the information, we will immediately delete the information from our servers.
