Please remember that the CAF Digital Platforms are designed to appeal to a broad audience. Accordingly, as legal guardian, it is your responsibility to determine whether any of the CAF Digital Platforms and/or information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, videos, messages, feeds offered through the CAF Digital Platforms (“CAF feeds”), the application programming interface (“CAF API”), and any other material on the CAF Digital Platforms (“Content”) are appropriate for your child.
