Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. Design professionals active in our community, we often invite students to peruse our web site to learn more about our profession. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under the age of 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13 to provide information to us.
