We believe it is important to provide added protection for children online and that data collection and tracking of children should never be done. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to observe, participate in and/or monitor and guide their online activity.

If a parent or guardian believes that Level9News has in its database the personally-identifiable information of a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately (using the contact in the first paragraph) and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
Level9News does not sell products or services for purchase by children. If you are under 13, you may use our services only with involvement of a parent or guardian.
