Our Website is not directed to children under the age of 18. We assume products purchased through credit card means are purchased by adults or minors supervised by a parent or guardian. We respect the privacy of parents and children and are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”).

On those areas of our Website that ask for age, we do not collect personal information from individuals who identify themselves as under the age of 18 except in those limited circumstances where we believe that such collection is permitted under COPPA and the child has the legal right to contract.

We may ask prospective users to provide their age during the registration process and on other areas of our Website. If a user indicates that he or she is under the age of 18 then all personal data collected during the registration process is automatically deleted except that we may retain and use limited information, such as the child’s email address, for a limited period of time, in those cases where we believe that the collection and use of such information is permitted under COPPA. If a parent believes that his or her child has provided us with personal information, he or she can contact us via e-mail or postal mail as listed below. We will promptly delete the information upon learning that it relates to a child under the age of 18. We believe that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from otherwise disclosing online their name, address and other personal information without parental permission.
