If you are a Child, please seek the permission of a parent or guardian before using the IDS website. If you are a parent or guardian and believe your Child is using the IDS website, please contact us to remove your Child's account request; IDS reserves the right to ask you for verification of your relationship to the Child before IDS honors such a request. If IDS discovers that a Child has requested an account, IDS will immediately delete the account application as soon as IDS discovers it, will not use the information for any purpose, and will not disclose the information to third parties. However, as a parent of such a Child, you understand that you are legally liable for any improper use of the IDS website instigated by the Child.
