Our Privacy Policy has been updated

Hi folks,

We’re updating our Privacy Policy today, hooray! We know you want to get back to creating things on Scratch, so we’ll keep this short.

We care a great deal about your privacy and security at Scratch. This update is just a few small changes to make our policies easier to understand, and to provide clarity on what data we collect and how that data is used. There are no changes to your account or how your data is being used in this update.

The highlights include:

  • Clarifying what deleting an account means
  • Noting that our servers are located in the U.S.
  • Providing a longer explanation of what cookies are (sadly, these cookies are not edible)
  • Stating clearly that using the Scratch offline editor doesn’t give us the ability to access any projects or personally identifiable information
  • More detailed explanations about what data we collect and what that data is used for.

The new Privacy Policy goes into effect today, May 23, 2018 and by continuing to use Scratch, you agree to this policy.

If you made it this far, congratulations, you get a cookie! Sorry, it’s still just a cookie for your browser and is totally not edible. We’ll work on making better cookies.

Scratch on!

For everyone wondering - this is due to new data protection laws in Europe - a lot of Scratchers are from the UK and other places in Europe, which is why this change has been made.

It's just a change to the privacy policy - as far as I'm aware this does not change anything to do with the usage of Scratch, it's just something Scratch has to do if they want to keep a big part of their userbase

That sounds great! I think updating the privacy policy is important, because it means that Scratch can still be fun, but safe at the same time!

Hmm, seems like a good ‘update’. Though the cookie not being edible is kind of disappointing.
