What Is COPPA?

COPPA stands for Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. It is a United States of America federal law that was put in place in 1998. It sets to regulate what is and is not acceptable for websites and online services (like apps) that are made for children under 13.

  • These guidelines help protect the privacy of children and ensure businesses are committed to keeping kids safe.
  • It regulates what data businesses can collect from youth under 13 and what they can do with that data. Since children often do not understand the consequences of sharing their data, businesses working with youth have a responsibility to ensure they are kept safe.
  • COPPA also ensures parents have rights when it comes to their children’s data and ensures steps are taken to verify parental relationships.

What It Means For You

Mazu is committed to going above the basic measures of this law to ensure the safety of our users. We strive to be leaders in children’s online safety and as the laws and best practices change, we will periodically update our privacy policies to stay compliant.

  • As a parent, you are able to manage your child’s settings and permissions once your account has been verified. Verification helps us make sure the right person is making decisions for the children in Mazu.
  • We do not collect or store data for child users and always require parental permission before using a photo a child submits.
  • Your child is able to enjoy the digital world in a safe way where their privacy is respected.
