Building COPPA-compliant competition flows for kids

When I was seven, I entered a competition at a local toy shop. The new James Bond movie, Licence to Kill, had just hit the theatres (eek, that dates me) and the competition was to promote the movie.

How we implemented kid-safe analytics with Amplitude

PopJam is a social platform that is built from the ground up to be safe, appropriate and fully anonymous for kids. It’s a safe, moderated community for kids to engage with their favourite content and brands, designed specifically for the safety and data privacy requirements (COPPA, GDPR-K) of the under-13 audience. Because it is aimed at an audience of 7-12 year olds, we take both privacy and compliance extremely seriously. A critical concern for any platform is the product analytics you use to measure and learn. This is never a trivial thing to get right. Deciding what to measure, and how, requires careful thought, but at least you have a massive array of products and solutions to choose from, often with fully-featured SDKs to make implementation quicker and easier.
