GUARDIAN'S SIGNATURE (if applicant is under 18 years of age)

The Internet allows access to a wide range of information, some of which may offend or be considered inappropriate for people under 18. It is not possible for APANA to censor or control the information which can be accessed through the Internet. Members (and where the member is less than 18 years of age, their parents or guardians) take full responsibility for any information accessed via the APANA network. Your child can benefit enormously from access to the Internet. You may wish to explore this new environment with your child to better understand the issues surrounding it.
