In this article, SUR IT MARZIPAN UNLOOSEN CUTS LTD (“we” or “Marzipan”) explain how we work with mobile apps that indicate to us that they are child-directed apps subject to the US Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), and/or to other applicable data protection laws, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and/or to Google Play’s “Designed For Families” program, that restrict processing of information collected from children.
When a publisher adds a new app to the Marzipan platform, or at any time while using the Marzipan platform, the Publisher must inform Marzipan if the app is directed to children, as required by applicable law, as explained in this article.
As a Publisher, you are responsible for:
- Evaluating your apps, and determining if your apps are child-directed
- Correctly flagging your apps as child-directed on your Marzipan dashboard, and setting the COPPA SDK Functionality, as further explained below
- Ensuring that your apps comply with applicable laws
To further understand your obligations under the COPPA, we recommend that you read the materials here: https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/privacy-and-security/children%27s-privacy
Publishers must choose for each of their apps the correct flag that applies to their apps, as further explained below.
