Dear Parents,

Why do children under 13 years of age need parental supervision?

Quite simply, the answer is because U.S. law requires that I put warnings on my site, if I solicit personal information from visitors.  I don't really solicit any information; however I do have a "guest-book" where visitors may leave their names and comments about my website.

Furthermore, there are third-party advertisements, which may solicit information (for the purpose of selling something).  While I am not directly responsible, I am indirectly responsible for that since I have placed the ads on my website.  Lastly, I do solicit donations, but is unlikely that any child under 18 years of age has a credit card, so therefore cannot donate.

That's why children under the age of 13 should be with a parent or guardian when visiting this website.

I hope you all enjoy the wonderful educational material that I have amassed free of charge (as it should be)!

Kind regards,

Calling All Adult Patrons,

Leon's Planet is an independently owned and operated website, and all fees to run this website come out of Leon's pocket.  Leon's Planet DOES need, and would like your support to keep going, because ads, so far, have not been generating enough revenue and Leon is currently employed, but has accrued great debt due to unfortunate (or fortunate) circumstances (depending upon you wish to view the matter).  I've already paid for one more year of web-hosting, so, this website will be up at least that long, but after than, who knows?  I give up trying to make money with this website.  It's probably not going to happen in my lifetime.  So....
