Effective Date: 9/19/2014
We at Class Compete are committed to the privacy of children using our service, and Class Compete has a strict policy of compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, as documented herein.
Regardless of where our servers are located, your personal data will be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. BY VISITING THE SERVICE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY INFORMATION COLLECTED OR OBTAINED BY US THROUGH VOLUNTARY SUBMISSIONS, AND THAT U.S. LAW GOVERNS ANY SUCH COLLECTION AND PROCESSING.
We collect two types of information about persons who use the Service: personal information and non-personal information. This information may be collected in a number of ways, including through direct submission, cookies, web beacons and similar data acquisition methods. Although you can disable cookies in your browser or device, disabling cookies may interfere with the use of the Service.
Personal Information Collected
Personal information is information that would permit us to contact you, or serves as a persistent identifier of you within Class Compete.
Personal Information that we may collect includes:
Class Compete does not collect any Personal Information about you without your voluntary consent. This information may be supplied to Class Compete when you sign-up for the Service, when you complete a survey, when you create or update an account, when you request services or otherwise when you explicitly submit it.
If you provide it, Payment card and associated information may be collected through the Service by a third-party payment processing provider. Class Compete does not collect or have possession of this information.
Children and Personal Information
We require verifiable parental consent before we allow users under the age of 13 to register for the Service, and before we collect any personal information about individuals under the age of 13. During the initial registration process, we will ask for the age, username, password, e-mail address, and the parent/guardian’s e-mail address.
After consent, Class Compete may collect and store information in identifiable and anonymous form about how users under the age of 13 are using the Service, such as class rosters, scores and achievements.
We may collect personal information, including an e-mail address, to respond to inquiries, but such information will only be used to respond to inquiries, and will not be retained thereafter without otherwise obtaining consent.
Non-Personal Information is information about users, other than Personal Information, that may be collected by Class Compete. It may include non-personal information about how users use the Service, such as browsing habits, information about the referring source of your traffic, anonymous demographic details, interactions with the Service and analytics relating to use of the Service. This collection may be done by automated means, such as cookies. Although you may turn off the collection of cookies through your browser options, it may hamper your user experience.
The Service may use analytic tools supplied by Flurry, which may track usage and help us personalize the Service. To opt-out of Flurry’s collection of data, please click http://www.flurry.com/user-opt-out.html
We may collect financial information from you to participate in a marketplace on our Service and to buy products on our Service, and for fraud prevention. This information may include bank account numbers or payment card numbers. Financial information is not stored by Class Compete, but is held by a third-party payment processing vendors acting on behalf of Class Compete.
Use of Information by Class Compete
Internal Use of Information by Class Compete
We accept and gather information in an effort to provide the Service to users. This includes the internal use of information collected from users to tailor the Service to users’ interests and improve the user experience of the Service. Additionally, Class Compete may use collected information for administration of the Service, such as for communicating with users about the Service.
Sharing Information with Third-Parties, Consultants, and Affiliates
We may share personal and non-personal user information with our consultants and affiliates in order for us to provide the Service and to operate Class Compete. For instance, our internet service provider and web host may have access to collected data to perform their services for Class Compete. Further, Class Compete may retain third-party consultants to perform analysis on collected data and to otherwise provide consulting services to Class Compete that may include review of data. These types of disclosures will be on a confidential basis.
Class Compete may share anonymous, non-personal information with our business associates and advertising partners. Such sharing is generally for the purpose of marketing Class Compete’s own services. At the direction of users, we may share non-personal information, such as scores, achievements and other in-Service activities with categories of individuals designated by the user, such as teachers and education personnel.
We may share personal information about users over the age of 13 with business associates for the purpose of informing users over the age of 13 about offers that may be of interest, but information regarding users under the age of 13 will not be knowingly shared in this manner.
Further, we may disclose collected information to the extent we believe it necessary to comply with the law, such as in response to a subpoena or court order, to defend a legal claim or otherwise as permitted by applicable law. Additionally, we may transfer your information to successor in interest, which may include but may not be limited to a third-party in the event of an acquisition, sale, merger or bankruptcy.
Use of Children’s Personal Information
Class Compete may use personal information collected from a child under the age of 13 during the sign-up process in order to obtain consent from the parent/guardian regarding their child’s participation in the Service. A parent/guardian may revoke that consent at any time. The parent/guardian’s e-mail address may also be used to inform the parent/guardian about Class Compete, the Service or the child’s participation in Class Compete.
We may share non-personally identifiable information on the children using the Service with the parental/guardian of that particular child, such as how the child has scored on games within Class Compete, and other achievement statistics. However, other than as identified, we do not share the personal information of children participating in the Service without the consent from that child’s parent/guardian.
The Service may include tools that enable users to communicate with other users, third-party administrators (such as educators) or with the public. Using these communications tools may allow you to share your personal and non-personal information with others. Although Class Compete does not knowingly allow users under the age of 13 to share personal information through these communication tools, Class Compete cannot guarantee that they will not be used for this purpose. Please exercise caution when using these tools.
We employ procedural and technical safeguards to secure your personal information against loss, theft, alteration, and unauthorized access, use and disclosure. We also employ security procedures to protect your information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company. These measures include password protection, firewalls, encryption and similar methods.
Regardless of the precautions taken by Class Compete, no transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
Access and Control
Some of the information collected about you will be retrievable and changeable through your username login. Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like us to provide you with the information we collect on your child, or to revoke your consent to allow your child. In any such request, please provide us with information that will allow us to verify your identity, including your e-mail address, name and phone number. Class Compete may take reasonable steps to confirm your identity before providing you with requested information.
