Although the Products and Services are designed to support families with children of all ages, the administration, configuration, and management of the Products and Services (e.g. via the Nokia WiFi App) are intended for use by adults over the age of 18. Please do not supply any Personal Data for a person under the minimum age through any of the Services or sites.
