Guests from Maine
Due to recent privacy laws enacted in the State of Maine which would require us to affirmatively verify the ages of all Maine residents who participate on any LicensingHandbook.com offerings, we are unable to authorize such participation from Maine residents. Any individual buying any LicensingHandbook.com product, posting any comment or participating in our forums whose profile information indicates Maine residency shall be immediately removed from all LicensingHandbook.com databases and lists. [Note: We apologize for the inconvenience to our friends from Maine – please notify your State Legislators that you would like to change this law to be more flexible towards online businesses who can’t always control the age of their participants.]
