Privacy Policy

April 9, 2016

To do our job, we need to collect, store, analyze, and report data about learners' gameplay. Parents deserve to know about our practices with respect to safeguarding that data, so we've worked hard to write a Privacy Policy that is clear, straightforward, and concise. If you have any questions about it, please ask us.

First, we want to list a few basic principles: We will only collect personal information that you explicitly give to us; and if you ever tell us to delete your personal information, we will. We will only use personal information to deliver a superior service to you and the children engaging with our products. We will not sell personal information, and we won't share it except as set forth under this Privacy Policy. We will store both personal and aggregated information, such as account and student performance data. Of course, we can't guarantee that we'll never be hacked, but our systems use industry-standard security protocols. We will only contact you based on your preferences, which you can change at any time.

I. What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that we gather when you are accessing or using our website, parent/teacher dashboard, mobile and PC apps. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to individuals that we do not employ or manage.

If you are not of legal age to form a binding contract (in many jurisdictions, this age is 18), you may only use the Services and disclose information to us with your teacher's parent's or legal guardian's express consent. Review this Privacy Policy with your parent or legal guardian to make sure you understand it.

We only collect Personal Information through the Services from a child under 18 where that student's school, district, and/or teacher has agreed (via the terms described in the Terms of Use) to obtain parental consent for that child to use the Services and disclose Personal Information to us or where the parent or legal guardian of a child has signed up or been invited to sign up or approve the child to use the Services. If you are a student under 15, please do not send any Personal Information about yourself to us if your school, district, and/or teacher has not obtained this prior consent from your parent or guardian or if your parent or guardian has not signed you up and given their approval for you to use the Service, and please do not send any Personal Information other than what we request from you in connection with the Services. If we learn we have collected Personal Information from a student under 15 without parental consent being obtained by his or her parent, guardian, school, district, and/or teacher, or if we learn a student under 15 has provided us personal information beyond what we request from him or her, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a student under 15 may have provided us personal information in violation of this paragraph, please contact us at http://educationcurb.com/contact.

When we use the term "Personal Information" in this Privacy Policy, we are referring to personally identifiable information of individual, non-children (i.e., adult) registrants of the Services. References to "Children's Personal Information" only apply to personally identifiable information collected from users who have registered for the Services as minor students (i.e., students under the age of 15). General references to "information" apply to all users.

We gather various types of Personal Information and Children's Personal Information from our users, as explained more fully below. We may use this Personal Information and Children's Personal Information to personalize and improve our services, to allow our users to set up a user account and profile, to contact users, to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to analyze how users utilize the Services, and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy. We may share certain types of Personal Information and Children's Personal Information with third parties, as described below.

II. What Information Does Education Curb Collect?

A. Information You Provide to Us: We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us. For example, we collect Personal Information and Children's Personal Information, such as your name, email address and school affiliation. A student registrant can only sign up with parental activation. We require your parent's email address so we can initiate a parental consent process. If a parent/guardian or teacher provides their third-party account login credentials to us, they understand some content and/or information in those accounts ("Third Party Account Information") may be transmitted into their account with us if they authorize such transmissions, and that Third Party Account Information transmitted to our Services is covered by this Privacy Policy.

You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features. We may anonymize your Personal Information and Children's Personal Information so that you cannot be individually identified, and provide that information to our partners. You may modify or remove your Class and Students'/Children's Personal Information (name and class) at any time by logging into your dashboard and selecting "Manage Subscription". Please note that your school and/or district, can view all activity and content associated with your student account, including your Children's Personal Information.

If you have provided us with a means of contacting you, we may use such means to communicate with you. For example, we may send you promotional offers on behalf of Education Curb or other businesses (without sharing your Personal Information or Children's Personal Information), or communicate with you about your use of the Services. Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open a message from us. This confirmation helps us make our communications with you more interesting and improve our services. If you do not want to receive communications from us, please do not opt in to such communications or indicate your preference by sending us an email to this effect with your login information to http://educationcurb.com/contact.

B. Information Collected Automatically: Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, "cookie" information, and the page you requested. "Cookies" are identifiers we transfer to your computer or mobile device that allow us to recognize your browser or mobile device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or mobile device to prevent or limit your computer or device's acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.

When we collect usage information (such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Website), we only use this data in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. For example, this aggregate data tells us how often users use parts of the Services, so that we can make the Services appealing to as many users as possible. We may also provide this aggregate information to our partners; our partners may use such information to understand how often and in what ways people use our Services, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal experience. We do not disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.

The website is using Google Analytics and HubSpot Analytics to track visitors. These services do not track personal information. The Contact Us form is using Sendgrid.com to track user requests. A link to Sendgrid's privacy policy is located at https://sendgrid.com/privacy/.

III. Will Education Curb Share Any of the Personal Information OR Children's Personal Information it Receives?

A. Affiliated Businesses and Third Party Websites We Do Not Control: We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information or Children's Personal Information in personally identifiable form to anyone. We share your Personal Information and Children's Personal Information with third parties as described in Section II and in this Section:

B. Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information or Children's Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. We also take steps to ensure that they agree to protect the Personal Information or Children's Personal Information shared with them.

C. User Profiles and Submissions: Certain user profile information, including a user name, location and affiliated school, may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within Education Curb's services. If such profile information contains Children's Personal Information, we will first obtain the necessary verifiable parental consent before allowing such information to be viewed publicly.

D. Business Transfers: We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that would be transferred. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information and Children's Personal Information would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party, if permitted by applicable law.

E. Protection of Education Curb and Others: We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we reasonably believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Education Curb, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

F. With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties in personally identifiable form, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information. In the case of Children's Personal Information, we will first obtain the prior verifiable consent of a parent or legal guardian, or require that the teacher/school do so. Even so, we will not share Children's Personal Information with independent thirid parties for the third parties' own marketing purposes.

IV. Is Personal Information or Children's Personal Information About Me Secure?

Your account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. If you access your account via a third party site or service, you may have additional or different sign-on protections via that third party site or service. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information and Children's Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password and/or other sign-on mechanism appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.

We use industry-standard security techniques to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information and Children's Personal Information we hold in our records. Although we use reasonable precautions to protect confidential information and provide suitable security, we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.

The Services may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices on other sites. When following a link to another site you should read that site's privacy policy.

V. What personal information and children's personal information can I access?

Through your account settings, you may access, and, in some cases, edit or delete the following information you've provided to us:

  • name and password

  • email address

  • child profile information (name and year level)

The information you can view, update, and delete may change as the Services change. If you have any questions about viewing or updating information we have on file about you, please contact us at http://educationcurb.com/contact.

If you would like to request that Children's Personal Information regarding your child be updated or deleted (or, if you are a teacher, a child that is in your class) by the Services, or if you wish to request that we discontinue the further collection nor use of Children's Personal Information, please contact us at http://educationcurb.com/contact.

To request removal of your Personal Information from our public forums, contact us at http://educationcurb.com/contact.

VI. What Choices Do I Have?

You can always opt not to disclose information to use, but keep in mind some information may be needed to register with us or to take advantage of some of our special features.

You may be able to add, update, or delete information as explained in Section V above. When you update information, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records. You may request deletion of your account by sending an email with instructions. Please note that some information may remain in our records after your deletion of such information from your account. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information and Children's Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.

VII. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used. If we make changes in the way we use Personal Information or Children's Personal Information, we will notify you by posting an announcement on our Website or sending you a message, and if necessary, obtain the prior verifiable consent of a parent or legal guardian. You are bound by any changes to the Privacy Policy when you use the Services after such changes have been first posted.
