Our Services are not intended to be for children under the age of 13. In addition, some of the available information may concern certain topics that may not be appropriate for minors (as defined by applicable law). Milkshake may, at its discretion, require users under 18 to obtain the consent of a parent or guardian to view certain content, and Milkshake may limit access to certain content to users above a specified age.

10. ADS AND MALWARE
We take great care and pride in creating this Service. We are always on the lookout for technical glitches that effect how the Service works. When we find them on our end, we will use our commercially reasonable efforts to fix them. Unfortunately, your computer may cause some glitches that effect how you see or interact with our Services--and that is beyond our control.
If you experience any unusual behavior, content or ads on the Services, it may be the result of Malware on your computer. Malware--short for Malicious software--is a term used to broadly classify a form of software which is installed in a computer system with malicious intentions, usually without the owner's knowledge or permission. Malware includes computer viruses, key loggers, malicious active content, rogue programs and dialers, among others. While we continuously work closely with our partners to ensure that everything on the Services is working properly, sometimes Malware programs on your personal computer may interfere with your experience on our Services and on other Web sites that you visit.
Please note that we cannot be responsible for the effects of any third-party software including Malware on your computer system. Please make sure to carefully read the Help or Customer Support areas of any software download Web site.
If you do discover any Malware on your system, we also suggest you speak with a qualified computer technician. If, after taking the above actions, you are still experiencing any problems, please feel free to contact us. firstname.lastname@example.org
