- Minors and young children
As stated in our Terms and Conditions, the minimum age for using our services is 16 years old. However younger children can also use our service if supervised by an adult, for example a parent or guardian). This is however the responsibility of the supervising adult to decide if the services we provide (from games to advertising from third parties) are suitable for the child or minor in question.
We believe there is no reason as to why children of any age cannot use our services, including switr.io since. Also the advertising we show via the third party advertisers will be mild and not show any content which would be reasonably considered offensive.
For parents or guardians or adult supervisors of children, if you require the data we store on the minor in question, contact us on email@example.com.
