Juveniles and KAPA

Children under the age of 13 should not use KAPA without the consent of their parents/guardians and must not attempt to register with KAPA and/or submit any personal information to us. KAPA does not knowingly collect personal information from any person who is under the age of 13. If it comes to our attention that we have collected personal data from a person under the age of 13, we will delete this information as quickly as possible. If you have reason to believe that this has occurred, please contact us by emailing [email protected], and we will delete any such information. We recommend that children between the ages of 13 and 17 should ask their parents or legal guardians for permission before registering with KAPA.

We understand that many Club leaders of junior teams may wish to use the KAPA Services to manage their teams. Club leaders should ensure that team member contact details for junior teams are in line with the child protection guidelines laid down by the governing body for their sport in their national jurisdiction (in most cases that means that only parent/guardian contact details should be used for conveying information to the juvenile).

KAPA will store all the personal information you provide on its secure servers.We take appropriate security measures to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure.

We use established security methods to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your personal information. However, no system can be guaranteed as 100% secure. Users are responsible for how they maintain and disclose their personal information and should never send personal information through insecure e-mail.
