It is up to the user to fully understand the risks and threats of using the public Internet, and to be sufficiently aware of those risks to adequately protect your confidential information. The user should remain current and exercise care when using the Internet. You should seek professional advice on protecting your privacy and evaluating the security of the information systems you are using.
SAFETY FOR PARENTS AND KIDS
The web is a great place for kids to hang out and learn about topics that are of interest to them. However, there are areas on the Internet that are not appropriate for children. The guidelines we have drawn up are a starting point for parents of children who surf. The most important thing is to be aware of what your children are doing online. This may mean surfing with your children, or talking to them about the sites that they like, or that they have recently discovered on the web.
Parents should be aware that some browsers use a password feature to block use of the internet. There are also software programs that allow the blocking of certain sites – each program works differently and can be adapted based on individual parenting styles.
Parents should also be aware that we check out any website that we link to, to ensure the best and safest environment for kids and parents to explore. However, we are not responsible for any content from third party websites (e.g., websites that we don’t have control over). See section on Third Party Sites, below.

We are pleased to hear from our loyal fans and welcome your comments regarding our products, including our on-line services. Our long-standing company policy, however does not allow us to accept or consider unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions or materials.
