We believe it is important to provide added protection for children online. Web sites with origin in the United States that collect information from children under the age of 13 are covered by a privacy statement that meets the requirements of the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act imposes certain requirements on Web sites directed at children under the age of 13 that collect information on those children, and on web sites that knowingly collect information on children under 13 years of age. We do not intend to collect personal information from children under 13 online and do not knowingly do so. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to participate in and monitor their online activity.
We may enable users to submit their own content for blogs and other functions. Please remember that any information you disclose becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal, financial or other information in a submission.
