Privacy Policy

[MISSING: tagline]

Your privacy and safety online are very important to us. To protect your privacy, we limit what we collect and what we publish on the website, and we do not share your data with anyone. Our policies are in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

Using Scratch Software

You do not have to tell us anything about yourselves to download the Scratch software. When you download the Scratch software, we give you the option of telling us some things about yourself, but you do not have to fill in any of this information if you don't want to.

Using the Scratch Website

You can try out projects on the Scratch website without registering or providing any information. But if you want to upload your own projects to the website, or add comments or tags to projects, you need to register for an account on the website.

When you register for an account on the website, we ask for some information. The only required information is your username, password, gender, country and your month and year of birth.

We also ask for your city and state or province, but this information is optional. We do not ask for your name, phone number, or home address.

If you are 13 or over, we ask for your email address so that we can tell you when there are important changes or new features in Scratch. However, you do not have to give us your email address to use either Scratch or the Scratch website. If you are under 13, we do not collect your email address.

We do not make any of your profile information public on the website, except your username and country.

We put a "cookie" on your computer to keep track of when you are logged onto the Scratch website. (A cookie is a small data file that indicates that you have been to a particular website.)

We do not share, sell, or rent your information to anyone. We do not have any third-party content, advertising, or cookies.

Changing Your Account

You can change or delete your account at any time. If you are a child, your parent or guardian can also change or delete your account at any time. If you decide you want to change or delete your account or your child's, please email
