**In order for us to verify that you are eligible, and that the information you submit upon sign-up is accurate, you may be asked to prove one or more of these aspects in some manner. Depending on your age, this may include uploading an ID such as a driver's license, or some other form of trusted ID verification. Under no circumstance will you be asked for payment information during this process. In some situations, for the safety of our other members, we may request a brief video call (or phone call if preferred) to verify your identity. More information about this process can be found in our application form. You can also visit our Privacy Policy to see how such information will be stored and who will have access. Although learning and competing in chess is important, we first value the safety of our members and the protection of their personal information.
