Ads keep us online. Without them, we wouldn't exist. We don't have paywalls or sell mods - we never will. But every month we have large bills and running ads is our only way to cover them. Please consider unblocking us. Thank you from GameBanana <3

Age Restrictions - A Wiki.

GameBanana is a website intended for a mature audience. Different laws around the world affect what age people can become members here. Many of our submissions have adult themes or animated violence and some of our submissions contain nudity and other adult content.

1. United States

If you are a US person (a citizen or resident alien residing in the USA) you must be at least 13 years of age to become a GameBanana member. If you are younger than 13 and still register you are in violation of our policy and will be banned. We must enforce this rule due to the COPPA act, which mandates that verifiable parental consent be obtained before sending a cookie or storing an IP address of a person 13 years or younger. Because this requirement of verifiable parental consent is difficult for us to enforce, we simply do not allow US people 13 years or younger to become members.

2. European Union

If you are a resident of the European Union you must be over the age of 16 to become a GameBanana member. Under the GDPR laws, processing of personal data of persons under 16 requires parental consent. Personal data includes usernames and emails, which our members must provide. For the same reasons as with US persons under 13, we simply do not have the resources to obtain verifiable parental consent, so we cannot allow EU persons under the age of 16.

3. Rest of the World

If you live anywhere other than the USA or the EU, you must be at least 13 years of age to become a GameBanana member. 

4. Parental Consent

Unfortunately due to the difficulties of verifying parental consent online, and the logistics of remembering which underage users have received parental consent, we no longer accept parental consent to allow underage signups. If you are the parent or guardian of an underage user wishing to use GameBanana, they may only signup when they reach the minimum age for their region.
