Why doesn’t MakeUseOf allow under-18s to participate in giveaways?

I am wondering why MakeUseOf doesn’t allow under 18s to participate in their giveaways. I am asking this because I am under 18 and would like to enter, but can’t.

Any ideas?

    Its because of COPPA and child protection rules, they cannot request personal information from anybody under the age of 18.
