Find out how we protect our community of teachers, parents and students
A note from ClassDojo's founders
In ClassDojo’s first week in 2011, we were really excited to see 80 teachers use ClassDojo in their classrooms (you know who you are!). Today, we're humbled to see how this community has grown to millions more in over 180 countries. Teachers, parents, and students everywhere use ClassDojo to build stronger relationships with each other. This is the heart of our mission.
Of course, these relationships require trust. That's why every ClassDojo product is designed with privacy and security first. This Privacy Center aims to provide even more transparency and peace of mind over how ClassDojo protects your privacy and security, and gives you control.
Our practices all come from a fundamental belief in doing what’s right for our community. That's why we’ve created some of the friendliest, safest, and most transparent policies in education. We clearly state what information we receive from you, what we do with it, and show you how to change or delete it. We’ve committed to never selling or renting your data to anyone, including to advertisers. We don't build 'records' to pass on or sell. And, we don’t keep student information we don’t need: after some time, it expires and is deleted. Read on to find out more!
We’re honored that tens of millions of you trust ClassDojo to be a part of your lives every day. Your trust means everything to us. We promise we'll always work as hard as we can to earn and keep it.
