    Hi,
    I have succesfully integrated unityAds in my proyect (it was astonishly easy) but when I have to select the target audience (to meet the COPPA thing) I´m not sure if should select under 13 or over 13, the proyect´s target audience is everybody :p but each option sound exclusive (one excludes the other) so which one should I select.


    Kind regards,

    Hi, thanks for your reply
    I already had read the thread and did not clear my question :(


    So in the other forum another user was told to come here to ask it ^^

    Does your application fall under the "4. If my game is developed outside the United States and not directed to any children located in the United States, what designation should I make?" item in the linked forum post?

    Basically, are you targeting kids in US with your game?

    Well, it´s a part of my target but it´s not my only nor main target. Perhaps I´m getting confused because of the language.
    "not directed to any children located in the United States" it says not directed to ANY, that´s the part which makes me doubt.
    Let´s say my game will be played by 6+ year old people (between 6-20). Being the main target (but not the only, as 6+ kids will play the game) the teenegers and adult that were kids 5 to 10 years ago. Which option fits this?

    I'm not a lawyer, but...

    Since your game is not primarily targeting kids under 13 in US, you can select the "This game is NOT directed to children under the age of 13 in the United States".

    It affects what kind of information we can collect for Ads and Analytics, and if you are in doubt, select the "kids" option to be on the safe side (but you might risk getting e.g. less accurate analytics data for your game)

    Choosing Kid´s option reduces potential income?

    Selecting the kids option *might* make the algorithms for your game less precise, given it doesn't have all the data available, but hard to say on generic level.

    Well, that was for people who'd have the same kind of question and would find this topic.
