We take kids privacy and safety very seriously in our products, and our Root Coding app is compliant with COPPA and FERPA. However, we have not yet completed an external certification. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we do not knowingly collect personal information for anyone under the age of 13 without verifiable parental consent. The only personal information collected in our app is an email address for creating and using a Root account, and you must be over 13 years old to create an account.

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, we do not collect any education records. Student activities and progress are only stored locally on the device. We are working on updating our Privacy Policy and Terms to be more clear about these points.
