The Service is for Enrollees under 18 years of age who use the Service under the express guidance and supervision of a parent or guardian who has accepted this Privacy Policy on the child’s behalf. By executing the Parental COPPA Notice and creating an account for your child you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your child’s Personal Information as provided herein.  Enrollees are not permitted to use the Services without your direct consent and guidance.  We require that you assist your Enrollee in using the Services so that you may monitor the Personal Information that they are disclosing.

Personal Information we Collect

In order to provide the Services, we will collect some information that identifies you and your associated Enrollees (“Personal Information”). When you create an account on the Service or sign up your child for classes, you may voluntarily give us certain information about yourself or your child.  This can include name, username, email address, city, state, demographic information (such as birthdate, age, sex, etc.) and any other information you provide us.  We also collect records and copies of your correspondence (including email addresses), if you contact us.  If you’re visiting the Service on your mobile device, you may also choose to provide us with location data. We keep all Personal Information strictly confidential and only use it in order to provide the Services, at your direction, or as otherwise set out in this Privacy Policy. Additional details are below.

Information We Collect from Children

We do not collect Personal Information from any child under 13 years of age without the verified parental consent of their parent or guardian. During the registration process, you will be asked to input Personal Information about the Enrollee such as name and email address and may be asked additional profile questions regarding their use of the Services.  If you provide any Personal Information about a child under 13 years of age to the Service, you expressly represent that you are the parent or guardian of the child and have the full right and authority to upload the information.  If you believe we might have any information collected from a child under 13 years of age in violation of this Privacy Policy, please contact us at ahewitt@gameucorp.com.

Website Access Information and Use of Cookies

Website Access Information

Like most website operators, Game-U collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request when visitors use the Service. Game-U’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how Game-U’s visitors use or visit the Service. From time to time, Game-U may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Service.  Game-U also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Service. For instance, Game-U may monitor the Service to help identify spam.  We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party Service or other online services (behavioral tracking).

In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using to access the Service, including the type of device, the operating system, device settings, device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings.  To learn more about the information your device makes available to us, please review the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.

We do not collect Personal Information automatically, but we may tie this information to Personal Information about you that we collect from other sources or you provide to us.
