We encourage parents to make their children aware of the issue of protection of their privacy and the ways they communicate on the internet.
Furthermore, we comply with legal requirements on this matter and do not accept registration on our Websites or Apps by children aged under 16. We therefore ask for the consent of their legal representatives when they create an account on a Website or App or seek to take part in an activity organised by Paris Saint-Germain (in particular, competitions).
