Bug Description

A legal issue has been raised in Ubuntu Forums by the user Mr. Picklesworth: - people under the age of 18 may not use Amazon without parental agreement and alcohol listings have further requirements:

"If you are under 18, you may use the Amazon Services only with involvement of a parent or guardian. Alcohol listings on Amazon are intended for adults. You must be at least 21 years of age to purchase alcohol, or use any site functionality related to alcohol." as specified at , under the your account section.

Clearly, Ubuntu doesn't prevent minors (or people under 21) to use the shopping lens.
