The Accelerator does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to subscribe. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to subscribe to The Accelerator or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address.

If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us. We recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
