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.
If you create an account on the Scholyr Service, or communicate with Scholyr, you may provide to Scholyr what is generally called "Personal Information" or "Personal Data," such as your full name, birthdate, email address or other information that can be used to identify you. Information which cannot be used to identify you as an individual is "de-identified" or non-personal 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
- 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 the Scholyr Service, or communicate with us, we may collect personal information including your name, email address, and birthdate. After you register, you may also choose to provide additional information in your profile, such as your nickname, location (city), and other personal or demographic information. In addition, we may ask you for personal information at other times, such as when you contact our technical support team, send us an email, complete a user survey, or otherwise communicate with Scholyr.
Information from Integrated Sign-On Services.
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 or teacher 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 we collect to enable your participation in special programs or features. From time to time, Scholyr may feature a special program or activity we offer in partnership with a third party. If you participate in these special programs, Scholyr may collect personal information from you to facilitate those programs. During a promotion, for example, participants may be asked to provide information related to event logistics and prize awarding and processing (e.g., contact information, dietary restrictions, shirt sizes, etc.).
