The Code Championship Privacy Policy was last updated: July 28, 2020

Code Championship understands how important privacy is to our community, especially kids and parents. We wrote this Privacy Policy to explain what information we collect through our website (codechampionship.com) (the "Site"), how we use, process, and share it, and what we're doing to keep it safe. It also tells you about your rights and choices with respect to your information, and how you can contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
