PRIVACY OF CHILDREN
Ivy Kids understands the importance of protecting the privacy of children. THE WEBSITE IS NOT INTENDED OR DESIGNED TO ATTRACT CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF THIRTEEN (13). Ivy Kids does not use the Website to collect personally identifiable data from any person that we know to be under the age of thirteen (13).
