Web Site Disclaimers

Kids' Privacy on Our Site

The CDC Podcasts site 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. The CDC Podcasts site 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 products, 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

The CDC Podcasts site may be a gateway. This means when you click on a link, you will leave our site. Most of the sites we link to are from CDC but we may include other government ones. Government sites have to follow special rules for their sites. When you're exploring podcasts, 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

The CDC Podcasts site may be a gateway that takes your children to other government sites which may in turn link to other sites. The majority of the links are from other government sites, but we do link to commercial and other 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.

Intrusion Detection

This site is maintained by the U.S. Government. It is protected by various provisions of Title 18, U.S. Code. Violations of Title 18 are subject to criminal prosecution in federal court.

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, we employ software programs to monitor traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. In the event of authorized law enforcement investigations, and pursuant to any required legal process, information from these sources may be used to help identify an individual.
