We take your privacy very seriously as our goal is to provide everyone who visits our website and uses our Service with an incredible experience.
We only collect certain information about you, your family, or your ward so that we can optimize your experience and process payments.
We understand that, at times, it can be scary to disclose your personal information so we will do everything in our power to ensure that your data is stored safely and securely.
Our website is not meant to sell products or services to children and we do not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from children. If you are under the age of 18, you may only use the website with the supervision of your parent or guardian. By registering a minor and/or providing access to your account, you certify that you are the parent (or legal guardian) of the minor and agree to provide consent on behalf of said minor. We respect your privacy and your data; therefore, parents (or guardians) can withdraw this consent at any time. In the unlikely event that you find Codeverse is collecting information from a minor without parental consent, please contact us immediately at email@example.com and we will delete the data.
We require that teachers or schools get parental (or guardian) consent before using Codeverse with kids who are under the age when they can grant their own consent (which varies based on where you live). If you reside in the US, then parental consent is required for kids under the age of 13. Here are ways that schools and teachers can obtain parental consent:
Obtain consent as part of a school-wide consent process that you may already have in place
Get parent’s signature on a consent form (such at this sample consent form)
For schools or teachers in the US, agree to act as the parent’s agent and provide consent on their behalf to use Codeverse solely in the educational context as provided by the FTC.
Just what we need. When you visit our website or register for/use our Service, we collect three types of information. Some of this information (as indicated when relevant), is required to manage our operations. Other information, such as demographic information and child interests, is optional and you only need to provide it if you wish. We use this information to better understand and serve our customers.
1) Information that you provide us directly, such as:
Parent or guardian information
Date of Birth
