Kids' Privacy on Our Site
eCards does not ask for or collect personal, individually-identifiable information,
like names and addresses, from kids or other users. We do use software that tracks
the number of visitors to the site, but this software never identifies who you are.
eCards does not collect personal information for any purpose other than to respond
to a user (for example, to answer a question).
Reference in this Web site to any specific commercial product, process, service,
manufacturer, or company does not constitute its endorsement or recommendation by
the U.S. Government or CDC. CDC is not responsible for the contents of any "off-site"
Web page referenced from this server. Conversely, CDC does not take any ownership
of the content found on external, non-federal Web sites that link back to the CDC.
Information or services detailed on external sites are not endorsed, warranted,
or guaranteed and are not necessarily representative of the views of CDC or the
U.S Department of Health and Human Services.
Message to Children - Be Careful on the Web
eCards is a gateway. This means when you click on a link, you may leave our site.
Most of the sites we link to are from CDC but we may Link to sites outside CDC.
Government sites have to follow special rules for their sites. When you're exploring
eCards, you may click on a site that will ask you for personal information, like
your name or email address. Before you give any information, show your parent or
some other responsible adult what you are doing. Remember: Be safety smart!
Message to Parents, Guardians, and Educators
eCards is a gateway that may take your children to other sites. The majority of
the links are to CDC sites, but we do link to other government and non-government
sites. Although many of the sites we link to must adhere to Federal rules established
to protect children's privacy, please understand that not all sites have to comply
with these rules. While we have selected sites that we believe offer good, reliable
information, we are not responsible for the content provided. Nor are we responsible
for their adherence to Federal rules to protect children's privacy. It is important
that you monitor your children's online communication to ensure that they do not
provide personally identifiable information to websites that you feel are unacceptable.
Tell your children to ask you or another adult to look at what they are doing first
if they wish to give their name or email address.
This site is maintained by the U.S. Government. It is protected by various provisions

unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
