“Minimum Age” means 16 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for Chelsea98 to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age.

Information and content that you share or post may be seen by other Members, Visitors or others (including off of the Services). Where we have made settings available, we will honor the choices you make about who can see content or information (e.g., message content to your addressees, sharing content only to Chelsea98 connections, restricting your profile visibility from search engines, or opting not to notify others of your Chelsea98 profile update). For job searching activities, we default to not notifying your connections network or the public. So, if you apply for a job through our Service or opt to signal that you are interested in a job, our default is to share it only with the job poster.
