Protecting the privacy of the very young is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information at our properties from those we know to be under 21 years of age, as is complicit with United States Law, and no part of our site is structured to attract anyone under 21. Separately, our website discusses alcohol consumption in a responsible way, and therefor is not geared to attract individuals within the United States who are not of legal drinking age.
