Personal Information we Collect
Information We Collect from Children
When using the Services, Enrollees may have the ability to upload certain content to the publicly accessible classroom message board, including Personal Information, images or location information, that may be used to identify your child. We prohibit your child from uploading such information to the classroom message board, however, we may not monitor the message boards to verify that Enrollees comply with this requirement. The amount and type of Personal Information that Game-U collects from Enrollees depends on the nature of their interaction with the Services. Children are required to refrain from posting Personal Information and if they abide by this requirement, Game-U will not collect any Personal Information directly from your child. If you believe your child may have submitted Personal Information to the Services without your permission or consent, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will delete the information.
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.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Pages of our Service may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit the Company, for example, to count users who have visited those pages and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Game-U will use the Personal Information that you or the Enrollee submit to us to provide you full access and functionality of the Services. We will never sell your Personal Information. Accordingly, Personal Information may be used for the following purposes: (i) to provide and improve our services, features and content; (ii) to administer your use of our services and accounts; (iii) to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Services; (iv) to better understand your needs and interests; (v) to fulfill requests you may make; (vi) to personalize your experience; (vii) to provide you with announcements, notifications related to your use of the Services and other communications such as electronic newsletters, promotional e-mails or similar messaging; (viii) to provide service announcements; (ix) to protect against users seeking to hack into the Services; (x) to assess the level of general interest in the Services and specific information included in the Services; (xi) for any other purpose with your consent.

Except as provided elsewhere in this policy Game-U will not disclose Enrollee Personal Information to third parties outside of Game-U and its service providers, affiliates, vendors and business partners unless Game-U has the good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to:
- cooperate with law enforcement authorities or comply with legal process served on Game-U or the Services;
- protect the property and rights of Game-U, its affiliates or a third party;
- protect the safety of the public or any person;
- prevent or stop any activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical, inappropriate or legally actionable (including by providing information about an Enrollee to law enforcement if we believe that child is at risk or poses a risk to others);
- complete, as permitted by law, a business sale, asset transfer, merger, acquisition or reorganization; or
- fix or debug problems with the Website or App servers, software or service.
If Game-U discloses an Enrollee’s Personal Information for one of these purposes, we will do so only to the extent necessary.
If your child posts their Personal Information to a publicly accessible message board the information will be disclosed to the other members of the classroom. All users of Game-U have agreed to not disclose Personal Information learned from a classroom message board to any third parties, however, Game-U is under no obligation to take any action and faces no liability in the event its users violate this obligation.
For users outside the United States, please note that any personally-identifiable information you or the Enrollee enters into the Services will be transferred out of your country and into the United States. You consent to such transfer through your child’s use of the Services. You also warrant that you have the right to transfer such information outside your country and into the United States.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
While Game-U classes are not accredited or associated with any educational institutions or any funding programs by the Department of Education and therefore the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act is not directly applicable to us, we respect the rights afforded to parents by that law. This means that under no circumstances will we disclose information about your child’s performance in a course to any individual other than a parent or guardian. If you wish that we send our performance records to an educational institution, please contact us via the information below and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
Game-U is concerned with safeguarding your child’s information. We employ a variety of industry-standard measures designed to protect your child’s information from unauthorized access. The servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment, and only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.
