3. Collection of Information
We collect Personal Information from learners partners and other Members who use our Service. When we use the term “Personal Information” we mean information that can be used to identify an individual and may include your first and last name, Member ID, password, electronic mail address, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, LinkedIn or other unique social media handles, mobile phone number, your geographic location, or postal address, each by itself or coupled with any employment date of birth, or biographical information you choose to submit in connection with the Service. If you choose to use our website’s social networking functions to post information to Facebook, Twitter or another social networking site, we may collect your Member ID and password information associated with such accounts as necessary to make it easier for you to post to that site, and we may collect any other information you specifically authorize us to collect from your social networking accounts.
“Personal Information” also includes any credit card or debit card, PayPal, or other financial account information you may provide to us or to our third-party payment application provider for billing purposes. However, we try to send billing and payment information, including any credit card, debit card or bank account information, through third-party billing systems so that we do not store all such information on our servers.
Please note, only your full name, email address, password, and date of birth are required to register for the Service. You always have the choice not to submit Personal Information, but please know that this may prevent you from receiving certain services. For example, educators who wish to get paid for Members’ access to their paid content must provide valid payment information so Crest Eduscore knows where to send payments. Crest Eduscore also collects “Non-Personal Information” about you. “Non-Personal Information” means information that is not Personal Information, including, without limitation, aggregated and anonymized information derived from your Personal Information.
4. Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Crest Eduscore puts in place certain features designed to help protect the Personal Information of children less than 13 years of age. Crest Eduscore does not knowingly permit any person less than 13 years of age to register directly for the Service unless Crest Eduscore reasonably believes that the child’s parent or legal guardian has consented to such registration and use of the Service. If Crest Eduscore learns that Personal Information of persons less than 13 years of age has been collected on the Service without parental consent, then Crest Eduscore will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under the age of 13 has an account with the Service without your consent, then you may alert Crest Eduscore at info@Crest Eduscore.com and request that Crest Eduscore delete that child’s Personal Information from its systems.
5. Use of Personal Information
Crest Eduscore uses Personal Information to assist us in setting up accounts; improving online operations; processing transactions you initiate (for example, any credit, debit or other billing account information collected from you by us or on our behalf by a third party payment gateway are generally only used to process transactions requested by you); if you are an educator who publishes paid content, sending you any payments we may owe you; providing customer service; if you are aChild Member, communicating with your parents or guardians; providing newsletters and/or other communications or services which you have signed up for or otherwise agreed to receive; displaying content on the Service that is customized to your interests or preferences, such as displaying select advertisements and sending you messages and offers, basing our selections on information that you may choose to provide to Crest Eduscore; sending account- or transaction-related communications such as welcome letters and transaction confirmations; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, service and technologies; publicly displaying Personal Information you choose to make available for public consumption (for example, Personal Information you choose to post to a public forum or Member profile on the Service); sharing information with our trusted sponsors and business partners for any reason, including without limitation so they may contact you directly with special offers and/or other messages; and managing our systems. We may also use this information for internal purposes to help us diagnose problems, monitor traffic patterns and otherwise continually improve our Service.
6. Disclosure of Personal Information
We may disclose Personal Information and Non-Personal Information about you to companies, agents, contractors, service providers or others engaged to perform functions on our behalf, such as providing data storage, hosting our website, conducting audits and performing web analytics; and to market Crest Eduscore products and services to you (for example, to email you messages concerning new Crest Eduscore features or products, or special offers on behalf of Crest Eduscore or on behalf of our trusted sponsors). We may also disclose Personal Information about you to other Members of the Service as needed to deliver to you the products and services you have requested, and we reserve the absolute right to share your Personal Information and Non-Personal Information with our trusted sponsors and business partnersfor any reason, including without limitation so they may contact you directly with special offers and/or other messages.
We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties, in our sole discretion, (a) to enforce or apply the terms and conditions of the Service, including investigations of potential violations thereof, (b) to comply with legal or regulatory requirements or a governmental request, (c) to protect the rights, property or safety of Crest Eduscore, other Members or other third parties, (d) to any authority, such as a police department or regulatory authority, or (e) to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical problems that may arise. We may disclose Non-Personal Information to any third party for any reason in our sole discretion.
Although Crest Eduscore makes available certain features that allow a Member to disclose personal information to other Members, we attempt to restrict a Child Member’s access to certain features that could result in disclosure by the Child Member of personally identifiable information. For example, a Child Member account is not normally permitted to post public comments on the Service for any videos or exercises. However, some features of the Service may permit a Child Member to enter free-form text through which the Child Member could include personally identifiable information that could be visible to other Users (such as when a Child Member enters personal information in answering an exercise problem or creating other projects on the Service). Further, certain features of the Service may allow the Child Member to communicate with other Members, such as when a Child Member communicates with an educator through the Service. If the Child Member chooses to include Personal Information in such communications, the recipient may be able to collect and use such information without restriction. For example, an educator may receive Personal Information that is made available by a Child Member and may be able to use such information without restriction.
Crest Eduscore reserves the right to transfer information (including your Personal Information and Non-Personal Information) to a third party in the event of a reorganization, spin-out, sale, merger, or transfer of some or all of the assets of our company, or in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy, liquidation or receivership of our business.
7. Accessing and Updating Personal Information
When you use our Service, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your Personal Information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual Members to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backups), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case, where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us at the address stated below with any questions if you need assistance accessing or changing your Personal Information or if you would like to have your Personal Information deleted from our servers. Please be aware that if you delete your Personal Information, you may not be able to continue to use our Service. Please note that if you request that we delete your Personal Information, we may in our sole discretion retain certain information, including your Personal Information, to satisfy our legal, audit and/or dispute resolution requirements. We may also retain your Non-Personal information indefinitely.

10. Information Security
We utilize a number of information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet and no method of data storage can be guaranteed to be secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we do not guarantee its security.
11. Third Party Sites; Message Boards, Social Media, and Other Online Forums
Please note that we are not responsible for the privacy policies, practices or the content of websites owned by others that you may link to or that may be linked from or integrated with the Service. Accordingly, we encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of service of any such websites so that you understand how those websites collect, use and share any Personal Information they may collect about you.
The Service offers many opportunities for Members to post content which may be publicly viewable or viewable by other Members.

Accordingly, you should exercise discretion with regard to what Personal Information you post on our Service and on third party websites, and should not publicly post highly confidential or sensitive information. Crest Eduscore is not responsible for how third parties who view your Personal Information may use this information, such as to send you unsolicited messages.
