How is children’s personal information treated?

If you are not of legal age to form a binding contract (in many jurisdictions, this age is 18), you may only use the Services and disclose information to us with your parent’s or guardian’s express consent. Review this Privacy Policy with your parent or guardian and make sure you understand it, and do the same with the privacy policies of all websites you visit or mobile applications you use.

We only collect personal information through the Services from a child under the age of 13 (or under the age of 16 for a child in the European Union) where that student’s school, district, and/or teacher has agreed to obtain parental consent for that child to use the Services and disclose personal information to us, for the use and benefit of the learning environment. If you are a student under the age of 13 (or 16 in the European Union), please do not send any personal information about yourself to us if your school, district, and/or teacher has not obtained this prior consent from your parent or guardian, and please do not send any personal information other than what we request from you in connection with the Services. If we learn we have collected personal information from a student under the relevant age without parental consent being obtained by his or her school, district, and/or teacher, or if we learn a student under the relevant age has provided us personal information beyond what we request from him or her, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a student under the relevant age may have provided us personal information in violation of this paragraph, please contact us at
