The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and its rules (collectively, “COPPA“) require us to inform parents and legal guardians as used in this policy, “parents”) about our practices for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from children under the age of 13 (“children”). It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child’s parent for certain collection, use, and disclosure of the child’s personal information.
This policy notifies parents of:
Children can access many parts of the Website and its content and use many of its features without providing us with personal information. However, some content and features are available only to registered users or require us to collect certain information, including personal information, from them. In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the Website.
We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in an activity, and we do not condition his or her participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary.
Information We Collect Directly. A child must provide us with the following information to register with this website: the child’s first name, email address, and Google account. We also require the child to create a member name and password. We may request additional information from your child, but this information is optional. We specify whether information is required or optional when we request it.
We enable registered users to communicate with others on or through this Website through chat, email, comments, ratings, reviews, and posting to public areas of the Site (“Social Features”). The nature of these features allows children to disclose personal information about themselves. We do not monitor or review this content before it is posted, and we do not control the actions of third parties with whom your child shares his or her information. We encourage parents to educate their children about safe internet use and to monitor their children’s use of social features.
Automatic Information Collection and Tracking. We use technology to automatically collect information from our users, including children, when they access and navigate through the Website and use certain of its features. The information we collect through these technologies may include:
We also may combine non-personal information we collect through these technologies with personal information about you or your child that we collect online.
We use the personal information we collect from your child to:
We use the information we collect automatically through technology (see Automatic Information Collection and Tracking) and other non-personal information we collect to improve our Website and to deliver a better and more personalized experience by enabling us to:
We do not share, sell, rent, or transfer children’s personal information other than as described in this section.
We may disclose aggregated information about many of our users , and information that does not identify any individual or device. In addition, we may disclose children’s personal information:
In addition, if TeacherMade is involved in a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of TeacherMade’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding or event, we may transfer the personal information we have collected or maintain to the buyer or other successor.
Social Features. The Website offers social features, including messaging, chat, email, posting on message boards, comments, online assignments, and reviews and ratings that enable children to communicate with their teachers through the Website. We do not control the types of information your child can send or post through them. We encourage parents to educate their children about safety online and to carefully monitor their children’s use of social features to ensure they do not disclose their personal information through them.
No student’s profile is made available or visible to the public through TeacherMade. If a teacher utilizes certain features on a device in the classroom, other students may be able to view information that is displayed by the teacher in the classroom, but students can’t view each other’s individual student profiles.
At any time, you may review the child’s personal information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete the personal information, and refuse to permit us from further collecting or using the child’s information. You can review, change, or delete your child’s personal information by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. To protect your privacy and security, we may require you to take certain steps or provide additional information to verify your identity before we provide any information or make corrections.
The following are all operators that may collect or maintain personal information from children through the Website:
Please direct your inquiries about any operator’s privacy practices and use of children’s information to the operator at its contact information provided: email@example.com.
