Giving consent to policies
All users (with the exception of admins) will be required to give their consent to all policies defined either for “Authenticated users” or for “All users” before proceeding further on the site.
If a new policy is added, all users will be required to give their consent when they next log in. Similarly, if an existing policy is edited and is not marked as a minor change, all users will be required to give their consent when they next log in.
If self-registration is enabled on the site, new users will be required to give their consent to all policies before proceeding to the sign-up form. If digital age of consent verification (a new setting in Moodle 3.4.2 onwards) is enabled in 'Privacy settings' in the Site administration, when a new user clicks the 'Create new account' button, they will be prompted to enter their age and country. If the user's age is lower than the age of consent for their country, they will see a message prompting them to ask their parent/guardian to contact the support contact (as specified in 'Support contact' in the Site administration).
