require that the winner's parent provide us with whatever information
is needed to provide the prize.

or contests that are open to children but that require other personal
information (such as home address or favourite hockey team) to enter.

from the Web site and have their parents sign and mail or fax the form
to us. Children are not permitted to provide personal information via
the Web site or to enter these contests online.
