The Kidney Stone Web Site encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children. No information should be submitted to or posted on our webpages by visitors under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian.

Before a submitted email address is added to our mailing list all online registrants receive an e-mail which must be answered. Only when that response is recieved is the address added to our list and another email is sent confirming their Registration.
