2. What information we collect
We collect data about your visit automatically as you navigate through the Site. We partner with selected third-party vendors (Google Analytics and StatCounter) to allow tracking technologies to, among other things, analyze and track users’ use of the Site, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand the online activity of our users while navigating our site.
We have enabled IP address anonymization and disabled demographics/interest reports within the third-party vendor software.
We do not transfer, provide or share any personal information you submit to this Site to these third-party vendors.
We collect information an adult user voluntarily provides to the Site when they, among other things, contact us, create an account, post on a forum, create a support ticket, or any other situation where they willingly submit that data. We collect this information directly from them when it is provided to us.
a) For adult users (over the age of 18) who create an account, we store the user provided email address, password and IP address of the device used during registration. The required date of birth on the registration is only used to verify age requirements and is not stored.
b) If an adult user updates their user profile and provides us with this information, we store and make publicly viewable and searchable some or all of the following: country, state, city, job title, subject taught and grade level taught.
Test Creation / Updating Tests
a) Data can be inserted/updated in our games using our test creation form. An adult user with a validated account can upload data. During submission we collect, then display any data entered into the fields or selected from pull down menus and also upload any image(s) from upload fields to be stored on servers required for the site to function.
b) Once your data is submitted, the question, answer, images, title, description and other form entered/selected data becomes searchable by other users of the site who may create a copy of some or all of that data. Your submitted data will be displayed publicly in a manner where others will have direct viewing of the data. Search engines/web crawlers/etc. may view/copy/display your data.
c) Email, IP addresses and passwords are never displayed as a result of test creation.

Upon game completion, we collect the following in these instances: first name, last name, teacher id number, time stamp of submission, the number of individual responses and attempts at the questions. If a valid teacher id number is entered and the teacher has agreed to our user agreement, that student information will be shared and displayed for that teacher to view and analyze.

If the minor supplies the voluntary information into the text fields, upon game completion, we collect and store the following: first name, last name, teacher id number, time stamp of submission, the number of individual responses and attempts at the questions.
