Parents of minors wishing to use these services, please note:

The OI Foundation leaves the decision to each minor's legal guardian as to whether or not participation in the OI Communities is appropriate. Users under 13 must obtain parental consent and provide proof of that consent in the form of a signed note of permission. Notes may be faxed or mailed to the Foundation offices. For more information, or to access and/or revise a minor's profile, email the webmaster or contact the Foundation.
