About our seals
All websites and technologies that have been certified by our program have demonstrated that they comply with our five "core safety rules" (illustrated below). These products are eligible, with our permission, to display and advertise the "kidSAFE" Seal on their respective products.

If a product is awarded the "kidSAFE+" Seal, which is an FTC-approved certification program, this means we have also verified their compliance with our six "additional privacy rules". These additional privacy rules are modeled after the Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule, a federal privacy law commonly referred to as "COPPA". You can learn more about COPPA from this simple one-page educational guide. The kidSAFE+ Seal is only available to companies who first become members in our program and who specifically request and qualify for this level of certification.

Core Safety Rules
  • Safety measures for chat and community features (if applicable)
  • Rules and educational info about online safety
  • Procedures for handling safety issues and complaints
  • Parental controls over child’s account
  • Age-appropriate content, advertising, and marketing
Additional Privacy Rules (COPPA Compliance and "Safe Harbor" Program)
  • Neutral age questions
  • Parental notice and consent procedures (when applicable)
  • Parental access to child's personal information (when applicable)
  • Data integrity and security procedures
  • COPPA-compliant privacy policy
  • COPPA oversight and enforcement by the kidSAFE® Seal Program
