If we are given information that some member is under 13 we will immediately ask that user to provide us evidence to the effect that he/she is at least 13 years of age, failing to do so within 48 hours, will result in the full termination of that user’s membership. If parents come to know that their child, under the age of 13, has joined Worldchains without their consent, they can inform Worldchains at [email protected]
