Parents in Control of Data Privacy

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, we support the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the EU GDPR which places parents in control of their children’s PII.
We market to and collect information from children under 13 for the purpose of enhancing and building their mathematical skills. We do not let third parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from children under 13. All gameplay data is a anonymized within our servers.
In order to remove your child’s information please contact our data privacy officer at:
We adhere to the following COPPA tenants:

  • We will not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity.
  • Parents can review their child’s personal information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child’s information.
  • Parents can agree to the collection and use of their child’s information, but still not allow disclosure to third-parties unless that’s part of the service.
  • Parents can review, delete, manage or refuse with whom their child’s information is shared directly on the DuckontheRun app or by contacting us directly.
  • We will notify parents directly before collecting PII from their kids. This includes what specific information you will want to collect and how it might be disclosed, a link to your online privacy policy, and how the parents can give their consent. Also, if the parent doesn’t consent within a reasonable time, you will delete the parent’s and child’s online contact info from your records.

The GDPR and Fair Information Practices

The GDPR and Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the European Union.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

  • We will notify the data subjects via our website within 72 hours

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

GDPR Data Rights

Exercising of all GDPR Data rights will be administered by the Data Privacy Officer.

All data subjects exercising their rights, must allow us to verify their identity, and relationship to any minor on behalf of whom they are exercising their data rights.
We will need two copies of forms of identification to verify your identity, which can be:

  • Passport

  • Birth certificate*
  • Utility bill (from last 3 months)
  • Current vehicle registration document
