For the protection and privacy of children, we seriously discourage unsupervised persons under the age of 13 from posting messages to any forum on Ship-Locator. Further, we encourage parental guidelines that match ours with respect to our forums. This guideline protects children and their privacy.

We do not knowingly acknowledge or accept orders, registrations or requests for any goods or services from persons under the age of 13. If it comes to our attention that a request has come from a person under the age of 13, we will not respond to such a request. Instead we will automatically delete any information provided by a person who acknowledges being less than 13 years of age.
