Privacy Policy

1. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ?

We take the information you provide to us very seriously, and we strive to put you in control of decisions around your information.

We collect information, including personal information, in a variety of ways which may vary according to your use of the Service and your account settings. The categories of personal information we collect may include:

 Contact and profile information

Account and authentication information from third-party integrated services

Location information

Information about your browser or device

Donation and applicant data

Non-personal information which may be linked to your Personal Information

Below, we describe examples of the categories of information we collect from and about you when you use our Service:

Information you provide to us and information we receive about you from others

Contact and profile information.

When you create an account on Prepmajor, or communicate with us, we may collect personal information including your name, email address, and birth date. After you register, you may also choose to provide additional information in your profile, we may ask you for personal information at other times, such as when you contact our admin team, send us an email, complete a user survey, or otherwise communicate with Prepmajor.

Information from Integrated Sign-On Services.

If you decide to register through or otherwise grant access to a third-party social networking or integrated service (what we call an “Integrated Service”), such as Facebook, Google, or similar single sign-on service, Prepmajor may also collect Personal Information that is already associated with your Integrated Service account. You may also have the option of sharing additional information with Prepmajor through an Integrated Service, as controlled through your settings on that Integrated Service. If you choose to provide such information, during registration or otherwise, Prepmajor will treat the information as Personal Information and will use it in the ways described in this Privacy Policy.

Information obtained from other users.

We make available certain features on our Service that allow other users to provide us information about you. For example, a parent may provide information relating to a Child User, such as when a parent registers an account for their Child and provide us with certain information about the Child, such as user name and age.

Information provided by partners and other sources.

We may also receive information from third party organizations with which we partner to provide educational services. If we combine or associate information from other sources with Personal Information that we collect through our Service, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Information we collect to enable your participation in special programs or features.

From time to time, Prepmajor may feature a special program or activity we offer in partnership with a third party. If you participate in these special programs, Prepmajor may collect personal information from you to facilitate those programs. For example, coding for kids by kids participants may be asked to provide information related to  prize awarding and processing (e.g., contact information, learning experiences etc.), and Bluesky citadel participants may provide information regarding study habits and test scores (e.g., the number of hours studied, modules or tests taken, etc.).

 Information about how you access and use the Service

Information about your use of our Service.

We may collect usage information about your use of our Service, such as the number of problems you have attempted, the number of videos you have viewed, and the amount of time spent to complete a problem. This enables us to better tailor educational experiences that are most appropriate for you.

Location information.

We may collect and use information about your location (such as your country) or infer your approximate location based on your IP address in order to provide you with tailored educational experiences for your region, but we don’t collect the precise geolocation of you or your device. You may be able to change the settings on your computer or mobile device to prevent it from providing us with any location information.

Usage and device information.

To provide a personalized learning and high-quality experience for our users, we may use various technologies that automatically record certain technical information from your browser or device when you visit our website, read our emails, use our Service or otherwise engage with us. This information is typically collected through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, Flash objects, log files, and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”). These tracking technologies cookies collect information about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take on the Service), information about your browser and online usage patterns (e.g., Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, pages viewed, whether you opened an email, links clicked), and information about the device(s) you use to access the Service (e.g., mobile device identifier, mobile carrier, device type, model and manufacturer, mobile device operating system brand and model, and whether you access the Service from multiple devices). We may collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools such as Google Analytics, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Sites and to understand more about the demographics of our users. You can learn more about Google’s practices at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners, and view its currently available opt-out options at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. We may also work with third party partners to employ technologies, including the application of statistical modeling tools, which permit us to recognize and contact you across multiple devices. Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our users, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track signals set by your browser at this time.

We use or may use the data collected through tracking technologies to better display our website, to save you time, to provide better technical support, for promotional purposes, and to track website usage. For example, cookies help us to:

Keep track of whether you are signed in or have previously signed in so that we can display all the features that are available to you.

Remember your settings on the pages you visit, so that we can display your preferred content the next time you visit.

Customize the function and appearance of the pages you visit based on information relating to your account; for example, in order to default you to a particular study level, or to remember customized settings for a report.

Track website usage for various purposes including sales, marketing, and billing.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features and services (particularly those that require you to sign-in) may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. You may also set your email options to prevent the automatic downloading of images that may contain technologies that would allow us to know whether you have accessed our email and performed certain functions with it.

Deleting cookies does not delete Local Storage Objects (LSOs) such as Flash objects and HTML5. You can learn more about Flash objects – including how to manage privacy and storage settings for Flash cookies – on Adobe’s website or by clicking here. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs. Please consult your browser’s “Help” function to learn more. If you choose to delete Flash objects from our sites, then you may not be able to access and use all or part of the sites or benefit from the information and services offered.

3. HOW WE SHARE OR TRANSFER DATA?

Prepmajor takes great care to protect the information you provide us. We do not rent or sell Personal Information that we collect from users with third parties.

Prepmajor will disclose personal information when you post content which is visible to others on the Service, when you consent or instruct us to share your personal information with third parties, or when we have a legitimate business or legal need to share your information. We may also disclose anonymous or aggregate information that does not reasonably identify you as an individual. To learn more, see additional description below.

When information is visible to others on the Service by default.

Certain features and functions of the Service shares or makes your information accessible to others. As with most online services, once you make your Personal Information available to others online, it may be collected and used by the recipients or any other website visitor without restriction. You may wish to use a nickname or alias in your profile if you do not want your personal information shared with others in this way. For example, your personal information may be visible to others in the following circumstances:

Information you post to public spaces of the Service. When you post a question or answer to the Service, your profile, which could include your name, short biography, as well as the content of your posted comment, is visible to others on the Service.

Connecting with a teacher. When your account is connected to a teacher on the Service, the teacher will be able to see your profile information and your activities on the Service, such as which videos you have watched, the questions and responses you post, and other usage information. Teachers may also be able to see your name (not only your username) as well as your email address, if you include that information in your account profile.

With your consent or according to your instructions.

You may provide consent or authorization to share your personal information with third party applications or services in several ways. Please note that these third parties are not governed by Prepmajor or the terms of this Privacy Policy. We recommend you review the privacy policy of any third party application or service before authorizing access to your Prepmajor  account information.

We may share data with social networks at your request. Some of our users choose to connect their Prepmajor account with social networks. This functionality is entirely optional. If you have explicitly agreed that we may do so, Prepmajor may disclose your Personal Information through a social network or similar service (like Facebook or Google). To control the information that you share, you have the option of modifying your Prepmajor or social network settings or disconnecting your social network account from your Prepmajor account.

We may share data with third-party applications that you authorize. Third-party application developers and service providers (commonly known as “App Developers”) may build complementary services for our platform, such as a mobile application for visually-impaired learners to access our resources, or may use our Prepmajor content to build unaffiliated applications and services. If you connect your Prepmajor account to an application or service, or approve access to your Prepmajor account by a third party application or service, you consent to Prepmajor sharing your information with that third party.

We may share information with your consent. Prepmajor does not share your Personal Information with third-party organizations for their marketing or promotional use without your consent. In some instances, you may be able to grant us permission to share your Personal Information with authorized partners, not-for-profit organizations, and other entities that are not affiliated with Prepmajor. In these cases, we will only provide to these third parties the information you have authorized or asked us to share to these third parties. You may also choose to share content with others by email, or by posting Prepmajor content to social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter. These third parties may use your information as described in their own privacy policies.

We may share anonymous or aggregate data with others.

We may use data which has been de-identified and/or aggregated for product development, research, analytics and other purposes, including for the purpose of analyzing, improving, or marketing Prepmajor. In certain occasions, Prepmajor may share this data with business partners to improve our services or offerings. If we disclose information to authorized business partners to conduct research on online education or assist in understanding the usage, viewing, and demographic patterns for certain programs, content, services, promotions, and/or functionality on our Service, such data will be aggregated and/or anonymized to reasonably avoid identification of a specific individual.

Other instances where we may share or disclose information for legal or business purposes : We will share data with employees and service providers. Prepmajor may share information with our employees and trusted vendors, third party service providers and other individuals to provide services or products for us or on our behalf, which could include analytics, hosting, marketing and similar services. When we share personal information with third party service providers or vendors, these third parties are contractually obligated to maintain the security and confidentiality of that personal information.

Prepmajor may release Personal Information if we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request; (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (c) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; (d) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; (e) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Prepmajor, our users, or the public; or (f) as required or permitted by law.

 

4. MARKETING OR SPONSORED CONTENT ?

 We may, from time to time, send you email regarding our products and services, or other third party products and services we think you may enjoy. For example, if we partner with a non-profit organization running free courses we may send you an email notifying you of the partnership or courses. We will not share your information with the third party unless you opt-in to participate in the partnership or courses, and if so, the information we would share would be limited to that needed to facilitate your participation in the contest and enable you to redeem your prize. You can unsubscribe from these mailings at any time. See Section 6 below.

Sponsored Content:

Prepmajor does not display any third party advertisements on the Service. From time to time, we permit third parties to sponsor content displayed on our Service. Prepmajor does not share any of our users’ Personal Information with these sponsors without explicit consent, and these sponsors do not have the ability to track or collect information about our site visitors or users.

5. YOUR CHOICE AND OPTIONS RELATING TO DATA COLLECTION AND USE ?

At Prepmajor, we use Personal Information as needed for the purposes for which it was collected or where you have consented to our use of your Personal Information. We take reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Information we store and use is accurate, complete, and up-to-date. If you discover that Personal Information or other data pertaining to you is inaccurate, incomplete, or out-of-date, please update your account information or contact us as outlined below.

You may later enable or access those features by providing Khan Academy with the necessary Personal Information.

You can choose to provide only information which does not reasonably identify you to others. We recommend you select a username which is not related to your actual name, for example. You can also decline to provide any optional data in your public profile.

You can unsubscribe from email communications.

Prepmajor may, from time to time, send you email regarding our products and services, or products and services we think you may enjoy.

Please note that you are not permitted to unsubscribe or opt-out of non-promotional messages regarding your account, such as account verification, changes or updates to features of the Service, or technical or security notices.

6. DATA SECURITY ?

Data security is important to you, and to us.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you account access or making corrections to your information. For example, we may ask you to provide certain Personal Information to confirm your identity, and we may require that you create and use a password to access certain parts of our Service. You should create and maintain a strong password to help ensure the security of your account.

We try to ensure that our Service and information sent to us are safe, but no security measures are perfect.

Prepmajor uses certain physical, managerial, and technical safeguards designed to preserve the integrity and security of your Personal Information and other information we maintain in connection with our Service. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any or all of the information you transmit to Prepmajor, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information,  Prepmajor makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. When you enter sensitive information, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) or similar technologies. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and will notify you of the security incident in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

 

7. OUR COMMITMENT : We are proud supporters of the Student Privacy Pledge. Our collection and use of Student Records is governed by our contracts with prepmajor, by our Privacy Policy, and by applicable privacy laws

 We collect, maintain, use and share Student Records only for an authorized educational and as described in our Privacy Policy, or as directed by the School, the School User and/or the student’s parent or legal guardian (a “Parent”).

We do not disclose Student Records for targeted advertising purposes. While we do permit third party advertising partners to operate on our Service for the purpose of retargeting, analytics and attribution services.

We maintain a comprehensive data security program designed to protect the types of Student Records maintained by the Service.

We will clearly and transparently disclose our data policies and practices to our users.

We will not make any material changes to our Privacy Policy or contractual agreements that relate to the collection or use of Student Records without first giving notice to the students and providing a choice before the Student Records are used in a materially different manner than was disclosed when the information was collected.

How we share and disclose Student Records.

We disclose Student Records in the manner described in our Privacy Policy under Section entitled How We Share and Disclose Information. Depending on the features and account controls applicable to the School User accounts, we may share usernames and profile information with other users on the Service, such as teachers,  administrators, and this information may be visible if a User posts content in the discussion forums.

All users, including (or their Parents) can delete their accounts and all personal information associated with the account at any time through account Settings. See “How can I cancel or delete my account” in the Prepmajor FAQ instructions.

8. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY?

Prepmajor does not permit children under the age of 13 (a “Child” or “Children”) to create an account without the consent and at the direction of a Parent. Please contact us at info@prepmajor.com if you believe we have inadvertently collected information from a child under 13 without parental consent so that we may delete the information as soon as possible.

Children under 13 may create an account with the parent’s consent. Please see the Children’s Privacy Policy to learn more about how Prepmajor collects, uses and shares information associated with Child accounts.

9. CHANGES AND UPDATES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Prepmajor may modify or revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. Prepmajor will notify users of any changes to our Privacy Policy by posting the revised Privacy Policy with an updated date of revision on our Service. If we change this Policy in a material manner, we will do our best to notify you of the changes by posting a notice on our website. Your continued use of the Services following the effective date of such update constitutes your acceptance of the revised Policy. 

We will not make any material changes to our Privacy Policy that relate to the collection or use of Student Records without first giving notice to the School and providing a choice before Student Records are used in a materially different manner than was disclosed when the information was collected.

10. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY POLICY

Prepmajor is committed to children’s privacy.

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important to Prepmajor. For that reason, we created certain features designed to help protect personal information relating to children who are less than 13 years of age (“Child Users”). Prepmajor does not knowingly permit Child Users to register directly for our Service without consent of a Parent or guardian. If premajor learns that Personal Information of a Child User has been collected on our Service without parental consent, then we will take appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian (“Parent”) and discover that your child under the age of 13 has a registered account with our Service without your consent, please alert us at info@ Prepmajor.com and request that we delete that child’s personal information from our systems.

How children may register for and use our Service.

Child Users can sign up for a Prepmjor account in several ways.

When a Child User signs up for a Prepmajor Account we request Parental consent.

When a Child User registers for our Service, we request a birthdate, username, password, and a parent’s email address so that we can email the Child User’s Parent in order to seek consent for the Child to use the Service. Prepmajor does not ask the Child User for any more information than is necessary to provide the Service to the Child User or to seek parental consent. 

What information do we collect from a Child User?

We collect a username, birthdate, and Parent’s email address when a Child User registers for the Service, as well as any other personal information a Parent adds to a Child User’s account, as described above. We collect information about the Child User’s use of the Service (lessons completed, badges earned) as well as content the Child posts to the Service if such functionality is enabled by the Parent. We also collect usage and device information, as described in our Privacy Policy. We use this information to provide the Service to the Child User and for the purposes described in in our Privacy Policy’s section “How we use the information we collect.” We use the Parent’s email address to communicate messages about the account.

11. THIRD PARTY TRACKING AND ONLINE ADVERTISING.

Prepmajor does not display any targeted advertising on the Service. We do not disclose personal information of Child Users for direct marketing purposes or for targeted advertising purposes. While we do permit third party advertising partners to operate on our Service for the purpose of retargeting, analytics and attribution services (See our Privacy Policy section “Third Parties and Online Advertising”), we take steps to disable third party ad networks on webpages with child-directed content or when a Child User logs into a Restricted Account on the Service.

How to access, modify and delete your Child’s personal information.

As a Parent, you have the ability to access control information about your Child User in the “Your Children” section of your Parent Account. To refuse future collection or use of your child’s Personal Information, you can delete your Child User’s Account by following the instructions in our FAQ.
