We’re required by law to obtain verifiable consent from a child’s parent before we gather any personal information from the child. Because of this, we need to verify your identity so we know you are really you.
The amount and type of transaction depends on your location:
- In the US: this is a one-time charge for $1.00. This a payment and NOT a temporary authorization hold. No further charges will be made to your credit card after this verification payment. The full amount of this charge is donated to charity by our identity verification provider SuperAwesome.
- Outside the US: SuperAwesome places a temporary authorization hold for £0.30. Authorization holds are not charges and will be removed by your financial institution after approximately 7 days.
