The Calypso software does not collect personal information. (Our web store collects the personal information necessary for you to purchase the software, but that information is only used for billing, and for informing customers of software updates.)
Calypso does not contain links to third party web sites.
Calypso for Cozmo does not require users to create accounts. Cloud Calypso does require users to have accounts in order to store their files, but when schools purchase an institutional license for Cloud Calypso they are given access to the Calypso Dashboard which allows them to administer student accounts themselves. Student accounts can use pseudonyms or id numbers if schools don't wish to associate them with actual student names. The contents of a student account are visible only to the student's teacher and school administrators.
