Use of Google Analytics for Kids apps

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'd like confirmation as to whether the use of Google Analytics is permitted for iOS Kids apps - it seems from the T+Cs this is not addressed therefore I want to be sure this is possible? Yahoo explicitly outlines it cannot be used for children focussed apps hence the seeking for confirmation. 

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi,

I cannot see how you could differentiate users in normal apps... there might be children too. And since you are not collecting any PII, I cannot see any reason why you could not use GA to track your app, even if its genre is kids related.

I'm curious about that Yahoo remark: Can you link to that information or copy it here?

Thanks

Hi,

Thank you for the help - I have tried contacting Google to confirm the use
is ok as it doesn't state otherwise in the terms, but have had no help on
this. As I mentioned, the terms in Flurry are what has made me query this
further - please see link to terms below:

It is at the bottom of the *Privacy and Information Collection* section:

Thank you,

Hi,

most likely other legislation (country based) will determine how and if you can track. I did not find any reference other than bunch or privacy policies like this one: http://www.minimiles.com/#!privacy-policy/kl018

I'll try to elevate this so that you could get definitive answer.
