Legal age for users

Is it okay for teachers to use Jitsi Meet as a means to chat with a class who is underage?
This is what it says in the terms of service:

“You affirm that You are of legal age and are otherwise fully able and competent to enter into these Terms, and to abide by and comply with these Terms. Although we cannot absolutely control whether minors gain unauthorized access to the Service, access may be terminated without warning if we believe that You are underage or otherwise ineligible.”

Thanks for replying.

This will be highly dependent on your country laws, as well as IT policies and educational policies set in your school, schoolboard, hosting provider, local law enforcement and relevant authorities. Most teachers hired by a recognized school know about these rules and regulations, ask.

If you self-host you can have your own terms of use following local rules & regulations.

Ask a lawyer or other competent authority, including your hosting provider.
