Our Commitment To Children's Privacy: 

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. We do not deliberately solicit communications from minors, but we do receive inquiries on occasion, e.g., students seeking informatin for school projects, and are happy to provide educational assistance to them.

Our policy is to treat all correspondents with respect and sensitivity. We normally provide the same information to a correspondent we know is underage as we would to an adult. For example, we will rarely simplify language in a reply to a young correspondent, but we might provide more basic background information and explanations of terminology if it seems appropriate.

The nature of our service is such that the kinds of information we provide is rarely personal or dangerous. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of parents to monitor the online activities of their children and we welcome parental participation.
