COPPA Compliance Rules
Websites that are collecting information from children under the age of thirteen are required to comply with Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The primary goal of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) Rule is to give parents control over what information is collected from their children online and how such information may be used.
- Provide notice about the site's information collection practices to parents and obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting personal information from children. See check box approval on forms.
- Note to parents: Your child's personal information will NOT be disclosed to third parties.
- Parents can access their child's personal information and have the opportunity to delete or edit the child's personal information.
- We maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of personal information collected for users by storing information in a non-public accessible database for use on this site only.

Safe Harbor Statement
The company wishes to take advantage of the Safe Harbor provisions included in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 ("the Act"). Statements by the company relating to future sales and operating results; projected capacity levels; anticipated capital expenditures; market and product development; and other non-historical information constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Act. Because they are based on beliefs, estimates and assumptions, forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Any number of factors could affect actual results, including, without limitation, product demand, changes in product mix and market acceptance of products; changes in pricing or availability of raw materials, particularly steel; effects of plant closures and the consolidation of operations; capacity restraints and efficiencies; conditions in major product markets; delays in construction or equipment supply; financial difficulties of customers, suppliers and others with whom we do business; the effect of national, regional and worldwide economic conditions; risks associated with doing business internationally, including economical, political and social instability, and foreign currency exposure; acts of war and terrorist activities; the ability to improve processes and business practices to keep pace with the economic, competitive and technological environment; the business environment and impact of governmental regulations, both in the United States and abroad; and other risks described from time to time in filings with the SEC.
