Use of our Site by Children
We encourage parents to take an active interest in their children's use of the Internet. This Site is not designed or intended to collect and retain personal information from children who are under 13 years of age, and you must be 18 years of age or older to create an account on the Site.
However, there may from time to time be contests or other activities on the Network that do not require an account and that are open to all ages, including children under 13.

What is Personal Information?
Personal information specifically identifies an individual, such as an individual's name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card or other account numberóand information about that individual's activities when directly linked to him or her, such as information about his or her purchases.
Personal information also includes demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic area and preferences when such information is linked to other personal information that identifies an individual.
Personal information does not include "aggregate" information. Aggregate information is data collected about a group or category of products, services or customers from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no personal information will be included in the resulting data. Likewise, information about the products you purchase may be collected and combined with information about the products purchased by others. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and customer needs so that we can better design new products and services, and refine existing products and services to serve our customers better.
