11. Children’s Privacy

We believe that privacy of children deserves special protection.

If you are under 16 years old or whatever is the minimum legal age that requires parental consent in your jurisdiction, please do not create an account on Bloom or use Bloom at this time. We will work to build in the additional child-friendly safeguards soon to enable direct participation on Bloom by people who are below the minimum legal age needed for parental consent.
