By visiting our websites or using the Services in any manner, you agree that you have read and agree to be bound by and a party to the terms and conditions of this agreement to the exclusion of all other terms. If the terms of this agreement are considered an offer, acceptance is expressly limited to such terms. If you do not unconditionally agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, you have no right to use the website or Services. Access to the website and use of Education Curb's Services is expressly conditioned upon your assent to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, to the exclusion of all other terms.
In this policy, we use "you" and "your" to mean grown-ups (parents, grandparents, guardians, etc.), not children under the age of 15.
When we write "personal information", we're using the same definitions that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission uses in its Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (or "COPPA") rule. More information can be accessed here.
Similarly, "verifiable parental consent" is a COPPA term, with specific rules about how to obtain it.
Now, here's what we do and how we do it:
ACCESS TO THE SERVICES
The http://educationcurb.com/ website and domain name and any other linked pages, features, Content, or application Services (including without limitation any mobile application Services) offered from time to time by Education Curb in connection therewith (collectively, the "Website") are owned and operated by Education Curb. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Education Curb may offer to provide certain Services, as described more fully on the Website, and that have been selected by you (together with the Website, the "Services"), solely for your own use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party. The term "Services" includes, without limitation, use of the Website, any service Education Curb performs for you and the Content (as defined below) offered by Education Curb on the Website. Education Curb may change, suspend or discontinue the Services at any time, including the availability of any feature, database, or Content. Education Curb may also impose limits on certain features and Services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. Education Curb reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify this Agreement at any time by posting a notice on the Website, or by sending you a notice. You shall be responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Your use of the Services following such notification constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as modified.
WE TRACK INSTALLATIONS
We work with partners to learn how people find our apps. This means that when you download our apps, we may learn that you came to our iTunes pages from a certain website (a review site, a web advertisement, our Education Curb web page, etc.). We may also collect a Facebook token if you are a Facebook user, but only to see whether you installed our app from one of our Facebook ad campaigns. We track installations only to understand how we can introduce more parents to our great products, and we make sure that our partners never use your personal information for any other purpose.
WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT YOU GIVE US
After you install our app, we may ask you for certain personal information (e.g., your email address), and as you use our products, we may collect relevant personal information for transaction purposes (e.g., a mailing address to send you physical products that you purchase from us). We may also collect other personal information that you volunteer (e.g., if you email us with questions or suggestions, or if you post comments on public forum pages, our social-media outlets, etc). The only things we do with this information are personalize your experience and/or deliver products and Services to you.
WE MAY USE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE FIND OUR APPS
We try to show ads only to people who would be interested in our products; one way to do this is to show ads to folks who "look like" our current users. To find "lookalikes", our advertising partners may try to match email addresses of our current users with registered social-media accounts to learn that, for instance, our product is popular with people in their 30s with college degrees. In no case are individual details extracted or shared; the entire process is based on group characteristics, not individual characteristics. And as with all of our uses of your information, if you want us not to use your email address as part of this process, please let us know!
WE COLLECT INFORMATION THAT ISN'T "PERSONAL" AS DEFINED BY THE FTC
As children play with our apps, we record their responses in a variety of situations so that we can help parents understand their children's progress. This is not "personal information" as defined by the Federal Trade Commission, but we want to mention it here anyway to be as transparent as possible. We may share this information with researchers, but never in a form that would make it possible to identify particular children.
WE STORE PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURELY
We collect and store information (e.g., gameplay responses) both on your device(s) and on our own servers. When we send information across the network, we do so directly and securely. We have technical, administrative, and physical security measures in place to ensure that your personal information is safe. (We're parents, too, and our children's data are in there alongside yours!) But as we mentioned above, we cannot guarantee that no one will ever be able to break in.
WE NEVER DISTRIBUTE PERSONAL INFORMATION TO ANYONE
WE WILL ANNOUNCE ANY MATERIAL CHANGES TO THIS POLICY
WE WILL HONOR YOUR REQUESTS
