Furthermore, Gridiron does not target its products and services to children under these ages nor do we knowingly communicate with children under 13.

If the Parent/Guardian knowingly and purposefully submit false registration information about the Child, the Child will be removed from the Gridiron program with absolutely no refund or credit being provided.
