Before using our sites, please read these terms.  These terms apply to any dispute between us, and you are concerning our sites and any service we provide through our sites.  By making an updated version publicly available on our sites, we can change these terms at any time.  By using the site after the updated version has been posted, you are accepting the new terms.

The Sites are only available to people aged 13 and older.  Our Sites are only available to 13-18-year-olds with the consent of their parents or legal guardians.

In accordance with these terms,

Content that we create or provide (our “Content”) is accessible through our Sites. Our Content may appear on a platform or service we do not control (“Third Party Site”), under its terms of use and privacy policy, not under these Terms.  Any Third Party Site you visit should have its own policy, so be sure to review it.

For access to certain Site features, you may be required to create a user account on certain sites or parts of our Sites.  Message boards and forums may also allow you to post comments and other content.  In addition to both those activities, these Terms apply to your access to and interaction with the Content.

You may be able to access Third Party Sites as a result of our Sites linking to them.  The Terms will not apply to Third Party Sites when you access them.  Any activities you conduct while on the Third Party Site will be subject to its terms of use and privacy policies.
