TECHNICAL SITE INFORMATION
This website is best viewed in Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Certain social media and API feed codes may not properly display in Microsoft Internet Explorer, due to its current lack of compatibility updates in this arena. This may change with future releases of Internet Explorer. If you experience format viewing problems while using Internet Explorer, we recommend you use Firefox or Chrome to improve your viewing experience. As a recommendation for Chrome users, you may need to download an .mp3 player extension if the audio interviews do not automatically play. Click here to browse the Google Chrome webstore.
Presently, the Apple corporation has chosen to not support Flash files on its mobile browser platforms, such as the iPhone ®, the Pod Touch ® and the iPad ®. For that reason, the flash media presented on this site cannot be viewed on those Apple mobile devices with the present iOS. However, this exclusion does not apply to desktop Mac ® computers using the desktop version of the Safari browser. All flash files will play on other mobile devices using the Android ® operating system, as the Adobe flash player is usually preinstalled. The site administrator is currently converting all videos to the HTML5 format which will increase compatibility with all mobile devices in the future.

We do not collect any personal information from you simply by virtue of your visiting our Website; we only collect it if you choose to submit it to us. It is entirely your choice whether or not you provide personal information to us. Computer data (non-personal information) may be automatically collected and stored by our site hosting server.

THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
CHILDRENS’ ONLINE PRIVACY
Protecting childrens’ privacy is very important to this Website. It is our policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. No information should be submitted to this Website by visitors who are younger than 13 years of age. If made known to us, any personal information that is inadvertently submitted to this Website from visitors under 13 years of age will be discarded in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. E-mail addresses of minors between 13 – 18 years of age submitted during fan club signup are kept by this Website for identification purposes only, and under no circumstances will be displayed or made publicly available. This Website cannot be held liable for information submitted to us outside of our policies and recommendations (e.g. a minor under the age of 13 fraudulently representing their age during fan club or newsletter signups).
While this Website has made every reasonable attempt to ensure its appropriateness for all ages, the website cannot be responsible for the actions of your minor children, to include their exchanges with other third parties. The responsibility of ensuring a minor child’s online safety or exposure to content (deemed unsuitable by the minor’s parent or legal guardian), rests solely with the responsible parent or legal guardian. Every reasonable effort is made by management officials of this Website to moderate certain aspects of the site, to include the official message board. However, the target audience of this Website is geared towards adults and minors above the age of 14. Accordingly, this Website and its management shall bear no liability regarding conduct by, or towards, its viewers under this target age. We strongly advocate and expect proper parental supervision and participation regarding all online activities of minor children.

VIII. BINDING ARBITRATION
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any Related Agreement, their enforcement or interpretation, or because of an alleged breach, default or misrepresentation in connection with any of their provisions, shall be determined by binding arbitration. The arbitration proceedings shall be held and conducted by a single arbitrator in accordance with Virginia Arbitration Code 8.01-577, as applicable to this Agreement. Such arbitration shall occur in the county of residence of the Website Administrator in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and be initiated by any party in accordance with the Virginia Arbitration Code. The demand for arbitration shall be made by any party hereto within a reasonable time after the claim, dispute or other matter in question has arisen, and in any event shall not be made after the date when institution of legal proceeding, based on such claim, dispute or other matter in question, would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations. In reaching a decision, the arbitrator shall have no authority to change, extend, modify or suspend any of the terms of this Agreement, or to grant an award or remedy any greater than that which would be available from a court under the statutory or common law theory asserted. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may seek, from a court of competent jurisdiction, provisional remedies or injunctive relief in order to protect our intellectual property rights and to support our rights and remedies hereunder without waiving any right to arbitration. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall allocate all costs and expenses of the arbitration (including legal and accounting fees and expenses of the respective parties) to the parties in the proportions that reflect their relative success on the merits (including the successful assertion of any defenses).

If any provision of this Agreement is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision is deemed severable from this Agreement and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
