Square Panda apps and games require an adult to create an account to approve product use by a child. To fully-activate an account, Square Panda requires an adult to provide their name, email, and country of residence to help identify customer status and ensure content received is in the correct language. Square Panda apps and games keep track of children’s progress as they play. Square Panda also requires submission of the child’s first name and date of birth. This allows synchronization of gameplay to account so adults can view learning progress and games can be set to age-appropriate levels.
