Privacy Policy

Last updated: March 3, 2024 (“CodePath”, “we”, “us” or “our”) is committed to respecting your privacy.  This Privacy Policy explains our practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of information that you (“you” or “user”) may provide to us through your use of our website at  and all of its sub-domains (collectively, the “Site”), the Application Portal we make available through the Site (the “Application Portal”), and our social media accounts, pages, and other applications, including, without limitation, any content, functionality, products, services or communications offered or occurring on or through any of the foregoing (collectively, the “Services”). 

By visiting, registering for, accessing and/or using our Services you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.  If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy AND OUR TERMS OF SERVICE, please do not VISIT, REGISTER FOR, ACCESS AND/OR use the Services.   Each time you use the Services, the current versions of this Privacy Policy AND OUR TERMS OF SERVICE will apply.  


We collect two types of information from users of our Services: “Personal Information,” which is information that can be used to identify you (such as your name or your email address), and “Aggregate Information,” which is information that cannot be used to identify you (such as frequency of visits to the Site or your browser type).


We collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us when you use our Services, such as when you register for an account (as described in more detail below) or submit an online form through our Site using our Contact page.  For example, you may provide us with your name, e-mail address, company name, the content of your communication, or other Personal Information when you choose to send it to us through email, an online form, or other method.   

If you subscribe to our mailing list on our Contact Page, we collect the information you submit and you are signing up to receive marketing and other communications from us.

If you interact with us on social media, we may collect your social media profile information, your communications with us, and your communications and posts on our social media pages. 


In order to use many of our Services and the Application Portal, you must first complete our registration process and create a username and password (as described in our Terms of Service).  During registration you are required to provide Personal Information such as first and last name, date of birth, phone number, email address, and social media details. We also collect information from you about your college or university, course interests, equipment capabilities, and your coding and technical experience.  


We work with a third party payment processor called Classy, Inc., a GoFundMe company (“Classy”) to process donations made to CodePath through the Site.  Your bank account and/or credit or debit card information is never shared with us, and at no point in any donation transaction do we have access to that information.  You should consult Classy’s policies to learn more about how it processes bank account and credit and debit card transactions for us by visiting  


We collect information when you communicate with us.  The specific types of information we collect will depend on the forum in which you communicate with us.  For example, if you send us an email, we will collect your email address and the content of your email.


When you use our Site and Application Portal, we automatically receive and collect information from your device.  This information may include the following:

  • Information about your device, such as the operating system, hardware, system version, Internet Protocol (IP) address, device ID, and device language.
  • Your country and general location, time zone, and language used.
  • The specific actions that you take when you use our Site and/or Application Portal, including but not limited to the pages and screens that you view or visit, search terms that you enter, and how you interact with our Site and/or Application Portal.

  • Information regarding your interaction with email messages, for example, whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded the email message.
  • Identifiers associated with cookies or other technologies that may uniquely identify your device or browser (as further described below).
  • Pages you visited before or after navigating to our Site. 


Aggregate information is information that does not identify you.  Aggregate information may be collected when you use our Services, independent of any information you voluntarily enter. Additionally, we may use one or more processes to de-identify information that contains Personal Information, such that only aggregate information remains.  We may collect, use, store, and transfer aggregate information without restriction (subject to applicable law). 


We are currently not using recognition cookies on our Site or Application Portal. 

We may use third parties, such as Google Analytics or other analytics providers, to analyze traffic to our Site and Application Portal.  Google Analytics does not create individual profiles for visitors and only collects aggregate data. To disable Google Analytics, please download the browser add-on for the deactivation of Google Analytics provided by Google at To learn more about privacy and Google Analytics, please consult the Google Analytics overview provided by Google at

We may also use cookies, pixels, beacons, or other web tracking technologies to track the amount of time spent on our Site and/or Application Portal and whether or not certain content was viewed. We may work with a third party to collect and process this information for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy.  

Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our visitors and users, we are not able to respond to Do Not Track signals from your browser.
