EarlsHelpDesk does not knowingly render services to anyone under the age of 18. When asked to do so by a client, we will speak with a child about their computer or Internet usage. In such situations the adult must still be held responsible for the child complying with the terms of service and usage policies entered into between the adult and EarlsHelpDesk. The adult must also be responsible for all payments for services rendered.

EarlsHelpDesk accepts no responsibility for any child that is allowed to use our services.
