A Word About Children’s Privacy
Friends Drift Inn Enterprises, aka FriendsDriftInn.com, is an e-commerce site selling jams, jellies, and food products. Our content includes recipes, insight into agricultural and culture in Appalachia, and chats about party ideas, entertaining, kitchen tips and the weather. We occasionally talk about cocktails and bourbon.
We do not intend to collect personal information about or from children. It may sound old-fashioned, but we believe kids should have parental or guardian permission to use our site. We strive to be a family-friendly site, but our definition of “family-friendly” may not align with yours. Parents teach your children how to be responsible.
Friends Drift Inn encourages parents, teachers, and mentors to caution children about providing personal information across the internet.
