The Company cares about the safety of children. Since our content and services are not directed towards kids, children under 13 are not allowed to register with our website or to participate in public posting areas on our website. If a child under the age of 13 tries to register, they will be "bumped-out" of the registration process after entering their birth date. In the event that we discover we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13 without parental consent, the Company will delete that information as soon as possible.
Upon registration with the Company, a user profile is created to customize the user's experience. Any profile information entered by the user is stored by the Company until such time that the profile is deleted.
In addition, tracking information is collected as users navigate through our site. To help us serve users' needs better, we use "cookies" to store and sometimes track user information. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to the browser from a web server and stored on users' computer's hard drive. Cookies can be disabled or controlled via web browser settings.
