Has anyone from New York had any luck getting in contact with Duolingo regarding the new New York privacy law for students? I've tried several times and have had no response. My district is disallowing me to use this site with my students because they do not believe Duolingo complies with the new law's requirements for student data. This site has been so valuable to my students even before we went to distance learning, I can't believe I'm not allowed to use it anymore now, of all times!
Duolingo provides some features and services intended for use by children. Duolingo uses age-gating to restrict what services are available to children depending on the age of the user and the applicable laws of their country. For example, a 15 year old child in Germany will require parental consent to use the Service, whereas a 12 year old child in the United States of America would receive a restricted service but not require parental consent.
