New age of consent at 16


#1

I’ve just noticed in an email that the legal age of consent is rising to 16. Do that mean that students below 16 cannot use CoSpaces?

Of course students below 16 can use Cospaces!

In the Terms of Use https://cospaces.io/edu/terms-of-use.html is written:

"CoSpaces Edu only collects personal information through the Services from a child under age 16 where their school, district, and/or teacher has agreed (via the terms described in more detail below) to obtain parental consent to use the Services and disclose personal information to us for the use and benefit of the learning environment.

If you are aware that CoSpaces Edu is collecting information from a student under age 16 without parental consent, please contact us immediately at info@delightex.com and we will delete the data.

[…]

Students under the age 16 may use CoSpaces Edu only if their parent or legal guardian has given permission to their teacher or school."

However i’d like to know if there’s any age limit related to other reasons: visor Google Cardboard should be 7 or 8; Google Daydream, for example, is 13; others like the ViewMaster, the MergeVR and the Systro should be somewhere in between…

I noticed that as well. How was the age determined? Just curious as most products usually are 13. This will have an impact at essentially every grade level.

These changes are in response to new European Union regulations I believe.
