About our seals
Any publisher or developer whose website, mobile app, or technology is displaying one of the kidSAFE Seals has demonstrated that their seal-bearing product complies with the kidSAFE-established guidelines corresponding to that Seal, as illustrated below.

If a product is awarded the "kidSAFE+ COPPA" Seal, which is an FTC-approved COPPA certification program, this means kidSAFE has also verified their compliance with our additional "COPPA Privacy Rules". These rules are modeled after the Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule, a U.S. federal privacy law commonly referred to as "COPPA" or the "COPPA Rule". You can learn more about COPPA from this simple one-page COPPA educational guide.
