I don't know that it matters much, I wouldn't really expect a 12 year old to be 
interested in GnuCash anyway... and besides, 12 year olds know how to get 
around most age restrictions.

I don't think that there's anything tracking related that the Alphavantage API 
key gets them. They can already get the requesting IP and associate the list of 
requested prices with it just like all of the other price sources. That's not 
to say that GnuCash users who use price quotes or online banking aren't exposed 
to tracking, just that it's not limited to Alphavantage. It's anyway pretty 
minor compared to web-browser use, so I went looking for Epiphany's age rating 
and couldn't find one.
