Children Under the Age of 13
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 section, “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 section notifies parents of:

Information We Collect from Children
Children can access many parts of the Application 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 and/or their teachers. In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the Application.
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 parent or teacher of a child must provide us with the following information about the child to register the child with this Application: the child’s first name, middle initial, and last name, birth date, school identification number, state identification number, gender, year in school, special disability services received, areas of strengths and/or weakness in the child’s reading capabilities, and a parent’s or teacher’s email address. We also require the child to create a member name and password. We may request additional information from a parent, teacher or child, but this information is optional. We specify whether information is required or optional when we request it.
We enable registered users who have joined a specific group on the Application, such as a group formed for a classroom, school, or school district (“group”), to communicate with others on or through the Application through prompts, alerts, messages, feedback responses, and/or through the Application’s virtual notebook feature, and posting to public areas of the Application (“Social Features“). The nature of these features allows children to disclose personal information about themselves. Parents and/or Teachers have the ability to set certain permissions/restrictions on these forms of communications in the user settings; however, 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 Application and use certain of its features. The information we collect through these technologies may include:
- One or more persistent identifiers that can be used to recognize a user over time and across different websites and online services.
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 information we collect automatically through technology (see Automatic Information Collection) and other non-personal information we collect to improve our websites and Application and to deliver a better and more personalized experience by enabling us to:
- Estimate our audience size and usage patterns.
- Store information about the child’s preferences, allowing us to customize the content according to individual interests.

- protect the safety of a child;
- protect the safety and security of the websites and Application; or
- enable us to take precautions against liability.

Social Features. The Application offers social features, including an interactive notebook for communicating, email, and posting on message boards, that enable children to communicate with others on our through the Application. We do not control the types of information your child can send or post through them.
