Compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)
Couragion complies with COPPA. We obtain verifiable consent in accordance with Federal Trade Commission guidelines before collecting any personal information.

As a parent / guardian / educator, you have the right to control what personal information is collected from your children who are under age thirteen.
We will not require a Child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary. However, the collection of personal information is inherent to our Products. If you do not consent to our collection and use of your Child’s personal information, then do not use our Products.
As a parent / guardian / educator, you have the right to review your Child’s personal information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow us to collect any additional personal information. If you refuse or revoke your consent, your Child’s account will be deleted and they will not be able to access our Products.
