Social Media Policy

We believe in the importance of protecting the privacy of children online. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) governs the information gathered online from or about children under the age of 13. Verifiable consent from a child’s parent or guardian is required before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from a child under age 13. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under age 13. If you believe that we have received information from or about children under age 13, please contact us.
