Trike is a non-profit organization dedicated providing exceptional virtual theatre experiences. We strive to implement best practices to protect the privacy of all of our student and non-student users, alike. To help our School partners address their obligations to protect their students’ data privacy, we have implemented additional controls and procedures for schools, school districts and teachers (collectively referred to as “Schools”) when they enter into a contract with Trike to use the Service as part of the School’s educational curriculum.

When the Service is used as part of the School’s educational curriculum, Trike does not collect personal information related to the School’s student users (“Student Users”) or any information defined as “educational records” by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”) or other information protected by similar student data privacy laws (“Student Records.”)

The use of Trike Services in the classroom is more akin to Student Users being shown a video in the classroom, though the actors in Trike Services may know the general age group of the Student Users watching the Services.  The School is responsible for managing all Student Records.


The Site is hosted in the United States. If you are visiting the Site from outside the United States, your information may be transferred to, stored and processed in the United States in accordance with this Policy and applicable U.S. laws. Please note that data protection and other applicable laws of the United States may differ from the data protection or consumer protection laws in your country. By using the Service, you consent to transfer of your information to our facilities as described in this Policy.


Protecting the privacy of children is especially important to Trike. For that reason, we created certain features designed to help protect personal information relating to children who are less than 13 years of age (“Child Users”). Trike does not permit children under the age of 13 to create an account without the consent and the direction of a Parent or School.  Please contact us at support@triketheatre.org if you believe we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under 13 without parental consent so that we may delete the information as soon as possible.
