A Note to Parents

Mary Brown’s is very sensitive to privacy issues and is committed to protecting the online privacy of children and making the Internet safe for our users. As a result, no Personal Information should be submitted to or posted on the Website by children under the age of 13 without their parent or guardian’s permission.

No Personal Information will knowingly be accepted from a child under 13 before this permission is obtained. Be assured that Mary Brown’s will not condition a child’s participation in any Website activity on the child’s disclosure of more Personal Information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity.
