What Information Do We Collect About Children and Why?
As described in further detail below, we collect some personal information from children so that we can track their progress through our courses. Data is retained for education purposes only.
How Information is Collected? We may collect information about children directly from children, as well as automatically through a child’s use of our Site and Services. We will not require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to use our Services.
Information We Collect Directly
We collect the child’s first and last name and email address. We only use name and email address (if provided) to track a child’s progress in our courses or to reset passwords. We will send emails to your children for email accountability. Furthermore, we will NOT send sales emails to your children. Parents may ask us to stop collecting personal information from their child by emailing us at email@example.com however, in such cases the child will not be able to take or complete our courses. If a parent directs us to stop collecting and using a child’s personal information, we must disable his or her use of our courses to ensure that no information is collected.
Information We Collect Automatically
We may automatically collect the following information about a child’s use of our Site through cookies and other technologies: domain name; browser type and operating system; web pages viewed; links clicked; the length of time spent on our Site; the length of time our courses were taken; Google Analytics statistics; the referring URL, or the webpage that led the child to our Site; language information; device name and model; operating system type, name, and version; and activities within our Site. We may also collect IP address, device identifier or a similar unique identifier from users of our Site, including children; we only use such identifiers to support the internal operations of our Site, and we do not use such identifiers to collect information about the child outside our Site.
Other Information We Collect About Children
We collect information about children’s performance and activities on our Site, including completion of courses. This information is for internal use only and will not be disclosed to other entities; however, we do not use this information in personally identifiable form for our own commercial purposes.

How We Share Children’s Information
We do not sell children’s personal information, and a child may not make his or her personal information public through our services. In general, we may disclose the personal information that we collect about children to provide our Services, to comply with the law, and to protect Story Quest Academy and other users of our Services.
