The safety of children is very important to us. The Site is a general audience Website that complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. When a child under age 13 attempts to register with the Site, we ask that they have a parent or guardian establish an account. This is to ensure that the parent or guardian consents to the collection and use of personally identifying information from that child. If a parent wishes to refuse to permit further collection or use of their child’s information by HBG, that parent can send an e-mail to us firstname.lastname@example.org to request deletion of their child’s account.
HBG strives to create a truly safe place for children on the Internet and over the airwaves. Parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist parents in limiting access to content that may be harmful to minors.
Housing for Older Persons
The Fair Housing Act prohibits certain forms of discrimination including discrimination against households with children under the age of 18. This prohibition does not apply to “housing for older persons”. Generally, “housing for older persons” falls into two categories: housing intended for, and solely occupied by persons 62 years of age or older; and housing that meets certain requirements including that at least 80% of the units are occupied by at least one person who is at least 55 years old. Some sellers who provide listings to NewRetirementCommunities.com represent to us that they fall under one of these exceptions, and consequently may restrict occupancy based on certain age restrictions. In an effort to assist buyers, NewRetirementCommunities.com identifies those communities that are age restricted. To find the community that best suits your needs, look for the “age restricted” and “all ages” indicators on each listing or community detail page.
