  1. Children’s Privacy

We are a general audience site, and we do not direct any of our content specifically at children under 13 years of age. We understand and are committed to respecting the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a site user is under age 13, we will promptly delete any personal information in that user’s account. The Terms of Service of this website forbid use by a person under the age of 13.

We also do not knowingly collect personal identifiable information from children under 13. In the case we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we immediately delete this from our servers. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal information or is using our website without your supervision or consent, please contact us so that we will be able to take the necessary actions.

While we use external services which may store IP addresses for the purpose of maintaining site security and blocking hacking attempts, we do not collect or store any associated personal information and have no way of connecting said data to any specific person, such as a child under the age of 13.
