or other individualized services. We require that a User be 16 years of age
or older to submit personally identifiable information. We do not knowingly
collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen.
We screen users who wish to provide personal information to prevent users under
the age of thirteen from providing such information. If we become aware that
we have inadvertently received personally identifiable information from a user
under the age of thirteen, we will delete such information from our records.
If we change our practices in the future, we will obtain prior, verifiable parental
consent before collecting any personally identifiable information from children
under the age of thirteen. Because we do not knowingly collect any personally
identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen, we also do
not knowingly distribute such information to third parties. We do not knowingly
allow children under the age of thirteen to publicly post or otherwise distribute
personally identifiable contact information. Because we do not collect any personally
identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen, we do not
condition the participation in online activities of a child under thirteen on
providing personally identifiable information.
