EPITAPH may disclose your personal information to our affiliated companies for their use in marketing to you unless you tell us not to. In order to opt out of such sharing or for further information, please contact us at __________. [Note: California law requires that if you share information with any other company – affiliated or unaffiliated – that they will use to directly market to that person, then you must be prepared to disclose to your customers (on their request) the names and address of the recipients of that information and the type of information disclosed. If you provide an “opt-out” of sharing for direct marketing purposes, then your response to requesting customers only has to be that they can opt-out of such sharing with an explanation of how to opt out.

Child Privacy

Because of the nature of our business, our products and services are not designed to appeal to children, and therefore we do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive any information from children. Our terms and conditions of use require that any registration may only be made by those over the age of 16. By using our services, you are representing that you are at least 16 years of age or have the permission from a parent or legal guardian to use our service. If we know that information is being provided by a child under the age of 16, we will not collect the information without parental consent or parent notification, which will include the opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information or to prevent the child's participation in the activity. Without parental consent, online information will only be used to respond to an unsolicited request and for no other purposes. We recognize that protecting children's identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents. We encourage parents or guardians to monitor the use of this Site by children to insure that they are not exposed to material that the parent or guardian may find objectionable. Parents are also encouraged to use parental control capabilities within their internet software to assist in their efforts to limit access to certain sites.
