When a guest under the age of 13 registers, he or she is required to provide the email address of his or her parent or guardian, and that parent or guardian may receive an email alerting the parent or guardian of such registration.

Although minors are allowed to participate in some contests, if such a guest wins, notification and prizes will be sent to the parent or guardian.
