Why is your birth date needed?

The MiTu Community Service utilizes your birthday to determine if we are able to support the creation of your MiTu Community Service Account. The Terms and Conditions require that all users be of 18 years of age or older to maintain an account. We do support users that are 13 to 18 years of age when supervised by an guardian. But due to the nature of the site, users pay or are paid for their efforts, we cannot allow children under the age of 13 to be utilizing the site and children between the ages of 13 and 18 using the site unsupervised.
