What's the purpose of this waiver. I'm 17 and I don't really see any need for it.

You must be over 13 to register without parental consent -- it does not apply to you.

the age limit for dpc is 13. if a parent has a child who is interested, the parent must take responsibility for the child, and this waiver is how that is accomplished.

Oh.

Is there already a parental consent form?
Or are you inventing one?

Use the Contact link under the Help menu and send the admins a note -- I'm not sure how they want you to send it in now.
04/26/2005 06:22:57 PM · #10
Once you've figured out how to send it in, could you please share the solution with us? I'd like to send one in for my daughter.
Thanks
04/27/2005 01:13:09 PM · #11
Has anybody worked out how to send the waiver in yet?
04/27/2005 01:17:21 PM · #12
If you want to get your child on DPC, just drop us a line letting us know you and we'll send you back a form that you can fill in (using WordPad or MSWord) and mail back. It's not required that you print, sign, and fax/mail back.
04/27/2005 01:25:56 PM · #13
Done. Thanks, langdon.

I have a son who just turned 13. Would he need a waiver? And if there was a kid's challenge would he be able to join? I know he'd want to join if there were kid's challenges. :)

From what I read above children 13 and over are responcible for themselves, so you would not have to accept the terms for the 13 year old.
07/04/2006 07:55:36 PM · #18
Im 15 and when i became a member it said i had to be 18....i lied....but is it 13 or 18...and kids challenges would rock.

http://www.coppa.org/coppa.htm

In summary ...

(1) CHILD.—The term "child" means an individual under the age of 13.

(1) IN GENERAL.—It is unlawful for an operator of a website or online service directed to children, or any operator that has actual knowledge that it is collecting personal information from a child, to collect personal information from a child in a manner that violates the regulations prescribed under subsection (b).

I don't understand what point you are trying to make here. This site does not collect any information about the minors - only their name and the signature of the parent. I registered my daughter and didn't even give her age -- also did not give the site her address, her full name or any other relevant information, the only email address used is mine.

I was just showing WHY they ask for your waiver ... so that people can never acuse them of breaking COPPA regulations or even think that they might be. With your waiver, their butt is covered, so I imagine that is why they ask for it. If you read the whole thing (COPPA), it may be even illegal to ask for name or age without clearance from the parent so that is probably why they want the waiver. My point was in answer to a 12 year old that said WHY do I need to get a waiver from my parent?

Does this mean that Joey Lawrence's mom has to sign a waiver?? ahhahahahaah J/K


05/06/2008 09:57:22 PM · #23
i don't think she should sign
08/20/2008 01:09:33 AM · #24
Waiver is often in writing,sometimes a person's action act as a waiver
waiver can only release negligent activity ,not intentional activity.
the waiver must be signed voluntarily and with the full knowledge of the right being waived
