Does Kahoot! collect personal info from children

We take  privacy of Kahoot! users very seriously. Please read the section in our Privacy Policy referring to collection of personal information from children. We define children as anyone under the age of 13 in the U.S., or under the age of 16 elsewhere in the world.

Playing kahoots

As stated in our Privacy Policy, we do not collect any personal information from a person who merely plays a kahoot.

Using a Kahoot! account

When a user who is under the age of 13 (for U.S. users) or 16 (for non-U.S. users) creates an account (a “child accountholder”), we collect his or her email address only for the purpose of providing password reminders to him or her. We immediately and permanently alter the email address such that it can only be used as a password reminder and cannot be reconstructed into its original form or used to contact the child accountholder.

We also collect a user name and password from child accountholders, which are used for login purposes only, to permit the child accountholder to use our Services.

Creating, browsing, and sharing kahoots
Children can only create kahoots and browse content that we’ve manually approved to be appropriate for children. They cannot browse our full database of user-generated content. They also cannot share kahoots or have kahoots shared with them.
