ACIAS INC. – PRIVACY POLICY

Last updated: September 3, 2013

Our Commitment to Privacy

We at ACIAS INC. (“we”, “us”, and “ACIAS”) are committed to providing quality online activities while promoting the online safety and privacy of our users. The operation of the Qlovi program, including our website, qlovi.com, and ACIAS’s other websites, applications, domain names, or other linked pages (collectively, the “Site”), involves the collection and use of information about you. This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explains the type of information we collect from users, including children, and how we use it, when such information may be disclosed to third parties, and how users, parents and guardians can control the use and disclosure of information so that you understand your options regarding the collection and use of your information.

We value your privacy and we recognize the need to provide additional privacy protection for children on the Site. Our privacy practices are guided by the United States Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”) as well as data privacy laws in the United States. Younger visitors should always check with their parents or guardians before entering information on any website and we encourage families to discuss their household guidelines regarding the online sharing of personal information.

Consent to Use Data

By accessing our Site, you are consenting to this Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect

For the effective operation of the Site, we may collect two categories of information: anonymous and personally identifiable. Anonymous information cannot be connected to a specific individual, and we may collect anonymous information that includes data about your hardware, software, network data, IP address, time of visit, and application usage information including pages visited, and time spent on a page. In addition, all information that is automatically submitted by your browser is anonymous and may be collected by us. Personally identifiable information specifically identifies a user and may include name, address, zip code, school, classroom, grade, gender, user name and password, email address, assessment data, such as reading level, or anything else reasonably required to effectively operate the Site. The primary types of personally identifiable information we collect are as follows:

 

How We Collect Your Information

 

How We Use Collected Information

We may use your anonymous information to bring you the best possible service and improve our platform.

We may collect and store personally identifiable information to provide the Site and features requested by you. For example, we may use your information to:

 

By using the Site, you understand and agree that we may use your information for the purposes described above.

Information We Collect from Children

COPPA requires that we inform parents and legal guardians about what information we collect from children, how we collect, use and disclose personal information from children less than 13 years of age and that we obtain the consent of parents and guardians to collect, use and disclose personal information from children less than 13 years of age. Below we explain how we comply with COPPA. Also, when we use the term “parent” below, we mean to also include legal guardians.

 

 

We collect personal information from children when they register for the Site. Before allowing a child to use these features, we send an email to the child’s parent requesting the parent’s affirmative consent to the child’s participation. If the parent responds by email and gives such consent, we then follow that communication with an email confirmation to the parent and allow the child to participate in the activity. If the parent refuses to allow the child’s registration or entry, we delete the child’s information from our database. Once a parent permits a child to register, the child will be able to participate in the features of the Site without any further notification to the parent.

Before allowing a child to use a feature of our Site that might result in disclosure of the child’s information to third parties we require a high level of verification to confirm that the parent has given permission for the child’s participation in such features. For example, we may require a parent to provide us credit card information or return by postal mail or email a signed consent form.

Third Parties

We will not share your personally identifiable information with third parties, except for your child’s teacher or school. We may share anonymous information with third parties for research and marketing purposes if it is not traceable to you (e.g., in an aggregated format). We do not share your personally identifiable information with other third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use.

The Site may include links or otherwise allow you to access and submit information to third-party applications or sites. This Privacy Policy applies to the Site only. Any information you submit to linked sites or other applications will be subject to the privacy policies of those sites or applications.

When required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information, we will provide this information. We may also release any type of information to law enforcement agencies or third parties if we feel it is necessary to protect the safety and welfare of individuals.

You may be given the option to access or register for the Site through the use of your user name and passwords for certain services provided by third parties (each an “Integrated Service”), such as through the use of your school’s learning management system. By doing this, you authorize us to access and store the credentials you provide, your name, email address(es), date of birth, gender, current city, profile picture URL, and other information that the Integrated Service makes available to us, and to use and disclose it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You should check your school’s learning management system or other Integrated Service privacy settings to understand and change the information sent to us through your school’s learning management system or other Integrated Service. Please review each Integrated Service’s terms of use and privacy policies carefully before using their services and connecting to the Site.

Opt Out Abilities
Use of your personally identifiable information is necessary to operate the Site. You cannot request that we limit the use of your information, whether anonymous or personally identifiable, if you wish to use the Site. If, however, you cease to use the Site, you may notify us by e-mail at general@qlovi.com, and we will destroy any personally identifiable information we have stored for you.

Cookies

The Site uses cookies. Cookiesare small data files, typically made up of a string of text and numbers, that assign you a unique identifier. This information enables your computer or mobile device to have a “dialogue” with the Site and permits us to administer the Site more efficiently and to provide a more tailored and user-friendly service to you. We will not have direct access to the cookies data. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to prevent cookies from being sent; if you do so, this may limit the functionality we can provide you when you utilize the Site.

Third parties that link to the Site may use cookies or collect other information when you go to their site. We do not control the collection or use of your information by these companies. You should contact these companies directly if you have any questions about their collection or use of information about you.

Security

We aim to protect your information through firewall and password protection systems. Only authorized individuals have access to the personally identifiable information provided by our users. From time to time, we review our security procedures to consider appropriate new technology and methods. We do not, however, guarantee that unauthorized or inadvertent disclosure will never occur.

International Visitors

Our servers and data centers are located in the United States. If you choose to use the Site from outside the United States, then you should know that you are transferring your personal information outside of your region and into the United States for storage and processing. By providing your personal information to us through your use of the Site, you agree to the transfer, storage, and processing in the United States. Also, we may transfer your data from the United States to other countries or regions in connection with storage and processing of data, fulfilling your requests, and operating the Site. You should know that each region can have its own privacy and data security laws, some of which may be less stringent as compared to those of your own region.

Transfer of Customer Information

We reserve the right to disclose and transfer your personal information in the event of a merger, acquisition or sale of assets involving ACIAS INC.. If an acquiring company should plan to materially change this Privacy Policy, we will notify you beforehand.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. The most current version of the Privacy Policy (noted in the “Last Updated” line above) will govern our use of your information and will be located here. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you by e-mail or by posting a notice on the Site prior to the effective date of the change. Your continued use of the Site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
