Privacy Policy

Preamble

Woot Math strives to collect the minimal personal information needed to provide its services, to stringently protect the information that it does collect, and to avoid the sharing of collected information with third parties, except as required to provide its services and to maintain a high quality user experience. We do not use data analytics and "data mining" to build personal profiles of any users (students or teachers) except to support the educational services we provide. We do use data analytics for Site performance monitoring, Site security, and delivering benefits to our users (e.g. personalized learning, providing useful data to teachers, improving our user interfaces, improving our educational content, etc.). To demonstrate our long term commitment to protecting our users' privacy and limiting our use of information in these ways, we have signed the Student Privacy Pledge (studentprivacypledge.org).

Woot Math provides many services to students, teachers, and parents. Our Privacy Policy covers all of those uses. Our policies are most restrictive when it comes to student data. For information specifically about how we handle student data, please see our Student Data Policy.

Details

As do almost all personalizable websites and apps, we use technologies like web cookies (data stored by your browser) and information provided by your browser (or device) to identify your browser or device so we that can deliver a better experience. Our systems also (as do almost all websites) log information like your browser version, operating system, and IP address.

We also may collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us, such as your name, address, phone number or email address.* (Note that by policy, we do not collect personally identifiable information about students.) Our systems may associate this personal information with your activities in the course of providing service to you (such as pages you view or things you click on or search for). If specifically authorized by you, we may also access other personal information on your computer or mobile device, such as stored images or audio you have recorded, in order to provide services to you.* If specifically authorized by you, we may also access profile and other information from services like Facebook.*

We do not knowingly collect or store personally identifiable information from children under 13. If you believe we have inadvertently collected such information, please contact us so we can promptly remove the information.

We allow teachers to create accounts for students, and parents to create accounts for their children. In doing so you may provide a nickname or username and you may choose whether or not to provide a first name or last initial for the students/children. Our systems may associate this information with your information and with the students'/children's activities in the course of providing services to you and the students/children.

We do not collect, use, store or share your precise location.

You can request to see or delete your personal data and that of any student accounts you create. If you unsubscribe to services such as an email list and that service is the only service for which we have collected your personal data, we generally delete your personal data. Otherwise, we generally keep your personal data until you ask us to delete it.

We remove personally identifiable information (such as your name, address, email or phone number) and other preferences associated with your account promptly after you delete your account. Account data, when deleted, cannot be recovered. We may retain other data indefinitely.

We don't share your personal data with other companies.

We do not allow advertising companies to collect data through our service for ad targeting.

Analytics companies may access anonymous data (such as your IP address or device ID) to help us understand how our services are used. They use this data solely on our behalf. They do not share it except in aggregate form; no data is shared as to any individual user.

We take steps to secure your personally identifiable information against unauthorized access or disclosure. We take security and protection of all of your information very seriously. For example, we encrypt all Internet traffic that may carry any personal information or user-specific information using industry-standard HTTPS, harden our servers and services against known intrusion strategies, and perform periodic security audits. However, no security or encryption method can be guaranteed to protect information from all malicious attacks or errors. Information we collect is stored on servers located in secure data centers in the United States.

If you are outside of the United States, please be aware that the information we collect, including personal information, will be transferred, processed and stored in the United States. The laws protecting your information (or allowing legal access) will be governed under United States law and may differ from those in the country from which you accessed the Site. By using the Site and providing any information you are consenting to the handling of your information as described in this paragraph.

Given the services we provide, we also may make identifiable and anonymous information available to third parties in these limited circumstances:

  1. with your express consent,
  2. when we have a good faith belief it is required by law,
  3. when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to protect our rights or property,
  4. when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to protect the safety of any person or the security of the Site, or
  5. to any successor or purchaser in a merger, acquisition, liquidation, dissolution or sale of all (or substantially all) of Woot Math's assets.
Your consent will not be required for disclosure in these cases, but we will attempt to notify you, to the extent permitted by law to do so. In the event that information is transferred to a successor or purchaser, we have pledged that the successor entity will be subject to the Student Privacy Pledge for any previously collected student personal information.

If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policies, please contact us in writing by email, postal mail, or our online contact form:

If you have given us contact information but do not want us to contact you with promotional or marketing information, you can opt-out here:

Please allow sufficient time for us to process your request.

Our privacy policy may change from time to time. If we make any material changes to our policies, we will place a prominent notice on our website or application. If the change materially affects registered users, we will send a notices by email or any other means we have to personally contact those users. Before data is used in any manner inconsistent with terms they were initially provided, registered users will be given choices to allow them to avoid such use. While details of our policy may change, our commitment to being good stewards of your information and protecting your privacy will not change. To convey our long term commitment to protecting our users' privacy, we have signed the Student Privacy Pledge (studentprivacypledge.org). We will not make material changes to any policies or practices governing the use of student personal information that are inconsistent with our contractual requirements.


This privacy policy was last updated on September 8, 2016, but it has not materially changed since it was created on October 8, 2014. The 2016 changes were to (i) add links to the Student Data Policy, (ii) clarify which statements in this policy do not apply to student accounts, and (iii) state that we no longer allow teachers to enter last names of their students, only last initials.


*These (starred) statements generally only apply to teacher and parent accounts, not student accounts which are covered by our more restrictive Student Data Policy.
