COPPA

IMPORTANT NOTE: Developers are responsible for evaluating their app(s) to determine if they are directed to children under 13 (each a “Child-Directed App”). Apps included in Google’s “Designed for Families” program, the “Family” section of Google Play, or the “Kids Category” of the Apple App Store should be treated as Child-Directed Apps unless the Developer has implemented an age gate for such app. For any Child-Directed App, Developer shall set the proper settings to enable only contextual advertising.
Apps directed towards children DO NEED to opt out of Behavioral Targeting by specifying their app is COPPA during the app creation process unless an age gate has been implemented.
  • When creating an app on the Chartboost dashboard, you must select whether your app is directed at Children under 13 or not. If you choose yes, your app will opt out of behavioral targeting and only serve contextual ads.

Starting March 26, 2018, COPPA targeting CANNOT start a cross-promotion campaign.
  • Your app may only cross-promote other COPPA apps.
  • Your app may only be promoted by other COPPA apps.
  • Device identifiers are anonymized in external APIs (e.g. Export Installs).
Cross promotion campaigns are restricted to promoting only apps with equivalent opt-out settings. For example: COPPA apps may only cross promote other COPPA apps. Similarly, apps that have not opted out of behavioral targeting may only cross promote apps that have not opted out.
