Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We won’t knowingly allow anyone under 13 to register with our Services or to provide any other Personal Information via the Services. If you’re under 13, please do not provide us with any Personal Information about yourself (such as your name, your e-mail address or your phone number).

Opting Out
You may choose to “opt-out” of sharing Personal Information in several ways. When choosing to use certain features of the Services, you can choose whether to share optional Personal Information in connection with the feature. If you receive e-mail, phone or mail communications from one of our Web sites that you prefer not to receive, you may opt-out from receiving these communications by modifying the contact options in your registration profile. In addition to opting-out by managing your contact preference options, you may opt-out from receiving commercial e-mail communications from The Seattle Medium that contacts you by using the opt-out link or instructions included in each commercial e-mail message you receive, or by emailing us – chrisb@mediumnews.net. You may “opt-out” altogether from providing Personal Information to us by not registering on the Services, or registering for any Seattle Medium-sponsored promotion, and thereby not providing Personal Information. You may also choose at a later date to have your name removed from our database by deleting your registration profile.

Your continued viewing, browsing, use or access of a Seattle Medium Service following our posting of a change notice will constitute your binding acceptance of those changes.
