Age Verification without storing birthdays

Recommended Posts

I would like to be able to stay in compliance with COPPA to verify users are 13 years of age or older (or whatever age is determined) while also not storing birthdays to the member profile. There used to be a marketplace plugin that did this but now all the plugins simply enhance the age verification part but still store the birthday in the birthday field. I can disable birthdays so we can maintain privacy but I would like it to ask for birthday on registration, only to perform the check if they are 13 or older, then simply flag the account in a hidden field that has uses a COPPA status "Under 13 (if COPPA registration is enabled), 13-17, and possibly 18+" for forums that require that type of age requirement.

Is this a possible feature that can be added to future versions, or some variation of this?
