Why are you asking for Date of Birth on the Registration page?
Why do we have to wait for a Registration Confirmation Email; why can't we Login immediately when we Register?
- You must be at least 18 years of age to use this site -- children should not be using this website.
- We feel that we have a duty and a responsibility to maintain the integrity of our online community AND to ensure that the people purchasing our products are legally permitted to do so, by ensuring that our site members are of legal age. The best way to do this is the request Date of Birth to calculate age when members register.
- Remember: the ONLY other identifying information we have about our Users are: "Username" (which the User chooses) and "Email Address" (which the User supplies). Therefore, from a Privacy perspective, this should not be enough information to identify you.
- As a general rule, we HIGHLY DISCOURAGE you from creating an account using your real name OR using an Email Address that contains your real name. These are just useful and commonsense tips that will keep your personal information secure while visiting ANY website.
- Parents: if you are concerned about controlling where your children are browsing, consider using tools such as: Nanny, Cybersitter, Surf Watch, or Cyber Patrol
- This is done to prevent Spammers/Bots from bombarding the site with fake User Registrations. If we didn't do this, the site could become unreliable as 1000's of fake accounts could be created within minutes.
