Sharing Information with Third Parties

Children under the age of digital consent

At Noteful, we realize that we need to take special care to protect children under the age of digital consent. Our child users are treated differently in order to ensure that we collect the minimum information necessary to provide our educational services, and to make sure parents are in control.

We collect age to determine which users are children under the age of 13. For children, we collect only a username so they can log in, a parent's email address so we can notify the parent about our privacy and information policies for child users, and information about the child's progress in the application.

Child users are treated specially in the following ways:

  • We do not collect first or last names.

  • We do not collect profile pictures.

  • We turn off ad personalization so that children are not tracked by third-party advertisers.

  • For children under the age of 16, advertisements are set to family safe content.

  • The social aspects of the app are turned off for children, so no-one sees their usernames and no other user can communicate with them in any way.

Once children reach the age of 13 (or 16 for family safe advertisements), we turn on the above features of the application.

We provide information about our personal data practices for children on our home page and wherever we knowingly collect personal data from children on our application. If you are under the age of thirteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use this application.
