The software will work by scanning for objectionable works or concepts, as determined by the default settings of the software manufacturer.

Parents are free to increase the filtering settings to be more stringent than the default settings if they so desire.

PROPRIETARY RIGHTS
You acknowledge and agree that all content, software, and materials available on the SITE are protected by copyrights, trade secrets, or other proprietary rights and laws.

The inclusion of such a link does not imply endorsement of the site by PHC Prep or any association with its operators, nor does PHC Prep warrant that other sites will not contain viruses or otherwise affect your computer.
