MEO strongly believes that it is important to protect the privacy of children and we encourage parents or guardians to spend time with their children to participate and monitor their Internet activities. Accordingly, MEO complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act and all other applicable laws and regulations concerning children and the Internet. Our surveys are not directed to children under the age of 13, therefore we do not provide memberships to persons under age 13. We will not knowingly collect, maintain, or disclose any personal information from children under the age of 13. From time to time, we may ask our adult survey respondents whether they have children residing with them who might have certain interests, such as favorite movies or music. In such event, we do not ask the child or parent to submit personally identifiable information about the child.
