This website is directed at adults and mature students; it is not designed for children under the age of 13. I operate my website in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, and will not knowingly collect or use personal information from anyone under 13 years of age. I feel it's common sense that anyone under age 13 should use the internet under adult supervision, but I'll mention it anyway.

If the Sage Urban Homesteading website is sold, the information obtained from you through your voluntary participation in the site may transfer to the new owner as a part of the sale so that that the service being provided to you may continue. In that event, you will receive notice through the website of the change in control and practices, and I will make all reasonable efforts to ensure that the purchaser honors any opt-out requests you might make.
Sage-Urban-Homesteading.com reserves the right to make changes in this policy. If there is a material change in privacy practices, this page will indicate that our privacy practices have changed and provide obvious notation about what is different, because I have nothing to hide and want you to see the information. I encourage you to periodically review this policy so that you will know what information is collected and how it is used.
