CoderDojo Los Angeles (CoderDojo LA)  is committed to protecting personal information of its Service users.

CoderDojo Los Angeles (also referred to as “CoderDojo LA”), a CoderDojo branch, together with its successors and assigns, is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal information entrusted to us.  CoderDojo LA complies with Federal Trade Commission’s privacy laws and regulations including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and Rule. CoderDojo LA will only use your personal information for the purposes intended and as detailed in the Privacy Policy unless we have obtained your consent to use it for other purposes.

This Privacy Policy is applicable to personally identifiable information (“PII”) of all users collected, stored or distributed through a website or application (commonly referred to as “Apps”), on which it is posted (collectively and individually, “Service”).  When this Privacy Policy uses the term “PII” or “personal information”, we mean information that identifies a particular individual.  When certain other non-identifiable information is directly associated with PII, this other information also becomes PII for purposes of this Privacy Policy. Some jurisdictions may call personally identifiable information “personal data” or “personally identifying information,” and may include opinions about or related to a user within the definition of PII.

This Privacy Policy is designed to inform you about the information we collect and use and your options with regard to that collection and use of that information through the Service.  By use of the Service, or communications to or with us, you are agreeing to these terms. If you do not agree with any of these terms or the terms that govern the Service, please exit our site or delete our application and do not submit information to us in any way.  By continued use of the Service, you signify your consent to the collection and processing of your personal information, and any resulting correlation of such information, as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

We don’t knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. 

Some parts of the Service offered by CoderDojo LA are not intended for children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect information from children under this age through the Service.

Registration.  We do not require registration on our own website ( On our website and app, we do link to outside sites such as that may require registration. (Children may also post to in particular using the CoderDojo LA username and password which will be provided at CoderDojo events.) During registration processes on these outside sites, including to programming resources, you may be asked to set up a username and password on behalf of your child.  Should you allow your child to do so for himself, neither you nor your child should use any personally identifiable information as his or her username, as this username may be visible to others on the Service. We also link to signup forms on Eventbrite, where we ask for parent contact information and child names of CoderDojo event attendees. We encourage you to list your child name on Eventbrite as first name and last initial – child first name and last name is not required. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of any outside sites, as they may handle information differently than we do.

The form of your consent can vary from implied consent to express consent, depending on the circumstances and sensitivity of the information collected. We will rely on implied consent when we can reasonably conclude that you have given your consent by your action (e.g. by giving us your name and contact information so that we may send you information requested) or inaction (e.g. by not exercising an ability to opt-out). This Privacy Policy identifies the purposes for which your personal information is collected, used and disclosed.
