Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act

Your privacy is important to us

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires us to inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information from children under the age of 13. It also requires that we obtain parental consent before we allow children under the age of 13 to use certain features of the Site.
As used in this Children’s Privacy Policy, the following terms have the following meanings:

"Parent" includes legal guardians and teachers.

"Child" means a child that is under the age of 13.

"Personal information" means individually identifiable information that is collected online, such as first and last name, a home address, an e-mail address, a telephone number, a SSN, or any information collected from an individual and combined with such identifying information.

For more information about COPPA, see the FTC COPPA site.

Scope of this Policy

This Policy describes how we collect, use and disclose personal information about children under 13 years old, within this site and its services and applications. Before using this site, please also read our general Privacy Policy.

About This Reading Comprehension Site

We offer users, including child users, the ability to fill out online reading comprehension worksheets. Only those users 13 or older are allowed to "register" to track test scores. Parents are asked to "register" if they want to track a child's progress if child is under age 13.

This site is available to children under the age of 13 if they want to use it anonymously, as our site only tracks anonymous users for web server statistics (browser, IP, operating system, referrer). But to "register" our site requires those users under the age of 13 to get parental involvement.
Children under the age of 13 are not allowed to "register" on this site without a parent’s permission.

Parental Consent

We are required by COPPA to use reasonable efforts to ensure that before we collect any personal information from a child, the child’s parent receives notice of and consents to our information practices. As a parent, you should know that through this site we DO NOT COLLECT personal information directly from the child. Registered account users can create sub-accounts for children to use, but those sub-accounts are NOT "public facing" and are not seen or accessible by anyone except the registered parent.

Information Collected From Children and How We Collect It

Once "registered", parents can create user accounts for children to use (sub-accounts). We ask that those accounts do not contain last names or other information that is overly personal in nature. The child user accounts are used only to track their worksheet scores. The child user accounts: a) CANNOT interact with others b) CANNOT add/edit personal information, hobbies, etc.. The sub-accounts are READ-ONLY.

Information We Collect Passively

We collect non-personal information from all visitors to our site, such as IP address, the date and time of visit, time spent on the site, the type of browser used, the type of operating system used, the ISP from which the visitor receives Internet access, and aggregate information regarding what pages users of the site access or visit. This information is not combined with the information we collect from users.

Tracking Activities on the Site

When your child is logged into his or her account, we track their worksheet scores only. The child can then log in and see all their scores over time. The registered user (for the child's sub-account) can also see these scores.
We may partner with third parties to provide content and/or to display targeted advertisements. We will not share your child’s personally identifiable information with these third parties. However, some of these third parties may use tracking technologies, such as cookies and Web beacons, on our site in order to track user activity. We do not exercise control over or have access to these tracking technologies or the information practices of these parties, which are subject to the privacy policies of these third parties.

How We Use Your Child’s Personal Information

We DO NOT collect personal information directly from children. "Registered" users can create sub-accounts for a child to use, but those accounts are read-only and don't allow the addition of personally identifying information.
We may use non-personal information such as information about the pages visited to improve the design, content and performance of our site, or to analyze site usage and the popularity of certain pages of the site.
Parents may request information from us on the type of data being collected, view their child’s information, and, if they choose, prohibit us from making further use of their child’s information. For more information on how to do this, see the section below entitled “How To Review, Delete or Alter the Information Collected From Your Child.”

How We Share a Child’s Personal Information with Third Parties

We will not sell, rent or trade your child’s information.

We may disclose personally identifiable information in response legal process – for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We may also disclose such information where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person, violations this Policy, or as otherwise required by law. In addition, we may transfer personal information if we are acquired by or merged with another company or as part of a bankruptcy proceeding.

How To Review, Delete or Alter the Information Collected From Your Child

You can review your child’s personal information at any time. You may revoke consent to collect your child’s personal information at any time. You can also have your child’s personal information deleted and refuse to permit further collection of such information by us.
If you wish to view, delete or modify the information we have collected about your child or delete your child’s account, you may do this by logging in to your registered account at any time (if child's account was a "sub-account"), or by e-mailing us at However, please understand that, even after removal, user content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or by others if a user has copied or stored such content.

Data Security

We have implemented reasonable safeguards to protect information that we collect and store. Despite these precautions, however, no data security safeguards are foolproof. Unauthorized individuals may find ways to obtain personal information from or to access the site. Please keep in mind that we cannot and do not guarantee that content posted at the site will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. Any content that you post or allow your child to post is at your own risk.

Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy but, instead, is governed by the privacy policies of those third party websites. We are not responsible for your access to and use of such third party websites.

Changes to this Children’s Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to amend this policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes. We will post a notice on this website if and when this policy changes to alert visitors that a new policy is in place.
