Privacy Policy


Your privacy and safety online are very important to us. To protect your privacy, we limit what we collect and what we publish on our websites.

You do not have to tell us anything about yourself to download Catrobat application software. When you download Catrobat software or sign up to a Catrobat website, we give you the option of telling us some things about yourself, but you do not have to fill in any of this information if you want to.


You can try out user contributed programs on our Pocket Code website without registering or providing any information. As you use our websites, we collect some data on where you click and which parts of the sites you visit. This 'click data' helps us figure out ways to improve the websites. We do not share your information with anyone.


If you have questions about this privacy policy, please send an email to

While participating in this Alice Game Jam, you are may share programs and ideas with people:

  • from many different countries and cultures
  • of all ages (from young children to teens and grandparents)
  • with all levels of experience

We need your help to make this Game Jam and its associated community a supportive place for every member. Here's how you can help:

  • Be respectful. When participating, please remember that people of many different ages and backgrounds will see your contributions.
  • Give credit. Feel free to make modified versions of other people's programs - just make sure to give them credit. One place to give credit is in your program's description. Please see the paragraph below this dotted list for details about modifying programs of other users.
  • Be honest. Don't pretend to be someone other than who you are or try to trick the community.
  • Keep personal information private. Don't share your email address, phone number, or other personal contact information to anyone beyond the organizers of the Game Jam.
  • Help keep the Game Jam friendly. If you feel others would find a program or comment mean, insulting, too violent, or otherwise inappropriate, please report it to together with a short explanation and a link to the place where you found it. We will review your report and may remove any program, comment, or post.

Through the Alice Game Jam we want to foster cooperation and allow everyone's creativity to combine for the benefit of all of humanity. You also can become an active member of the Catrobat community by giving your programs back to the community as a gift, in the same way as other contributors are giving their programs to you:

  • By uploading a program to our websites, you accept and agree to put this work under certain free licenses of uploaded Catrobat programs. Similar to the free licenses under which the Catrobat system itself is available to you, these free licenses of uploaded Catrobat programs give everyone the right to learn from work previously uploaded by others and to adapt and remix that work to build their own new fascinating games, animations, and other programs. This allows everyone to 'stand on the shoulders of one's peers', one of them being you! Your work will thus benefit the whole world and remain free for everyone to use, a bit similar to text and pictures freely contributed to Wikipedia by volunteers from all over the world. Think of it as your present to humanity: you give to everyone, and all others who upload their work to our websites give to you. Thus an uploaded program is a gift of great value which its owner is giving to you for free, with the condition that you participate in the community on the same terms.
  • You do not have to accept the gift; if you do, certain rules apply. The benefits of these rules are that you can learn from the work and build upon it to make even cooler stuff yourself, which you can then, e.g., again upload to our websites as your own. Another benefit is that these licenses make sure that you cannot be held liable for any problems arising to others through their use of your program.
  • One important additional condition is that you clearly give attribution to the authors on whose works you based your own work. At the same time, we will work hard so that your work will be clearly appreciated by others to having been contributed by you, by giving attribution to the unique name you have freely chosen to represent you in Catrobat's community, and by giving others the opportunity to express their gratitude to you in public ways for having given your work to everyone, and in particular to them.
  • Please consult our licenses of uploaded catrobat programs page for the precise legal terms and conditions.


  • We offer all our own software and Internet resources related to the Alice Game Jam and the Catrobat system, e.g., the software written by the Catrobat team, our websites and Internet resources, our own source code related to the Catrobat system, and all additional included materials such as, e.g., pictures, sounds, and texts, now and in the future to you under Catrobat's free licenses.
  • These licenses make all parts of Catrobat both free of charge to you as well as free in the sense of giving you the freedom to use them however you like, with only a few restrictions ensuring, among others, that the Catrobat system will forever remain free and useful for everyone.
  • Please consult for the precise legal terms and conditions. The source code of the Catrobat system as well as many other documents and resources are available via


  • If you, or, if you are below 13 years of age, your parents or legal guardians, are associated with an organization involved in or responsible for dragnet type privacy violations and/or bulk or mass surveillance, then you are not allowed to participate in the Alice Game Jam, nor to use our software applications and to access our services.
