Re: Age Ranges for contributors was: Salsa vs Github




A bit of searching shows that some international legislation seems to be
responsible for the age restrictions.

This project cites the GDPR:

GitHub's ToS says an account holder must be at least 13 and gives US law
as the reason in section B(3):

https://help.github.com/en/articles/github-terms-of-service

And finally, is GitHub's statement on child labor giving UK law as one
of the reasons:

https://help.github.com/en/articles/github-statement-against-modern-slavery-and-child-labor

Of course, IANAL, etc., but the last two links do shed some light on the
issue for me after a quick glance.
