Effective as of August 1, 2022
I. Digital Connections
The Service is controlled and operated by Common Sense in the United States, and your use of the Service is not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of the United States. We may, in our discretion, decide to limit the Service's availability, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we choose, at any time at our sole discretion.
II. What Information Do We Collect?
In this Policy, Personal Information means information about an identified or identifiable natural person. It includes any information that can be used to identify (directly or indirectly) or contact a specific individual, such as the individual's name, postal address, email address, telephone number, or online identifier. Non-Personal Information is aggregated information, demographic information and other information that does not reveal a person's identity.
Children's Information. The Service does not collect Personal Information. The Service is used anonymously. Players enter a short user name to begin. If users choose to save a game, they can use this name to resume play, but this is stored locally and is not collected by or accessible to Common Sense. If directed by teachers, users may choose to print or save a copy of the certificate which displays any entered user name. We do not collect such files. This Policy does not address, nor do we accept responsibility for, the manner in which schools or other third parties collect, use, or share information derived from the Service.
Information Collected Through Technology. If a user wishes to share game results, we enable performance cookies. Through these cookies, we and our service providers may collect certain Non-Personal Information automatically when the Service is used, and such information may include anonymous information about the use of the Service, device type (e.g., iPad Air), browser, operating system (e.g., iOS 12.4), and country, state, and city. We use this information to administer and improve the user's experience on our Service, to help diagnose and troubleshoot potential server malfunctions, and to gather broad demographic information. We use Google Analytics to collect and aggregate this information, which is not able to track a user across devices, apps, or sites.
Information Retained on Device or in Browser. The game will store username and progress data for a player. This information is stored locally in a browser, and is not collected by Common Sense or accessible to Common Sense. This information persists until a user deletes it by clearing the browser cache.
III. How Do We Use the Information We Collect?
We do not collect Personal Information through the Service (and therefore do not use such information). Through the Service, we may collect Non-Personal Information, which we may use for any purpose permitted by applicable law, including maintaining and improving the Service or other services that Common Sense provides.
IV. How We Share Non-Personal Information Collected Through the Service
We may share aggregated Non-Personal Information generated by use of the Service – including data collected via Google Analytics — with vendors contracted by Common Sense to maintain the Service, our Board of Directors, funders, partners, financial supporters and sponsors of the Service or Common Sense for various reasons, such as understanding how to increase the effectiveness of Common Sense's services and the traffic and trends occurring on the Digital Connections Service. In addition, we may share aggregated Non-Personal Information with academic or other researchers and with the news media.
V. Children's Online Privacy
We support the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, and we do not collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13.
VI. Important Disclosures
No website, mobile app, or device is completely secure or "hacker proof." As such, we cannot promise that a third party will be unable to use the Service for unauthorized purposes, such as attempting to access information stored on a device on which the Service is used. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the section below entitled "Contacting Us." Please note that, if you notify us by physical mail, this will delay the time it takes for us to respond to the problem.
