Financial information that is collected is used to charge the user for products and services.

* E-mail addresses are collected only for the purpose of contacting you in the future. We WILL NOT sell or rent your e-mail address to other companies or individuals.

* We do not collect the personal information for children under the age of 13. We are prohibited from conditioning a child's participation in an activity on the child disclosing more personal information than is reasonably necessary. In cases where we have inadvertently collected personal information of a child, the parent can always review this information, choose to have this information deleted from our records and refuse to permit further collection or use of this information.

This site gives users the following options to not receive future communications.

  1. If you wish to change your e-mail subscription enter your e-mail address here.
