personal information obtained from young children. Therefore, in order

we require that the child provides the email address of a parent or
guardian who will be contacted by Ubisoft in order to confirm, modify or
refuse his or her child’s registration. Ubisoft reserves the right to
request written proof of the parent or guardian’s authorization at any
time. If the parent or guardian does not answer within 30 days of
Ubisoft’s email, the child’s personal information will be deleted and
his or her registration refused.”
