abides by this requirement. We do not request, nor do we collect, any personally
identifying information from non-members in order to use these features of our site.
While children of all ages are welcome to visit our site to enjoy these features,
parents and guardians should note that while Wherehouse.com is primarily a general
interest web site with content suitable for everyone, some material on our site
(features dealing with "R" rated movies and explicit lyrics in music,
for example) may be inappropriate for children.
However, we do use personal member information for site personalization features
and for the administration of our sweepstakes, games and contests. Accordingly,
we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone
under the age of 13 without requesting verifiable parental consent. Since we require
users to provide some personal information to register for Wherehouse.com membership
before they may use these site personalization features and services, children under
13 will not be able to use these features of our site WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR
