Our site is for use by both children and adults. Please refer to the children’s section of this for more information.
We collect a date of birth from children to provide the appropriate experience, a parent email address and the child’s initials to notify you that your child wishes to use the site along with a password. We also provide a username for login purposes.
Parents must opt in to their own account in order to permission their child’s use and to connect to their child’s account. The Site permits a child to type in responses to questions in open text fields and take pictures and video to record that an action was completed, both of which may constitute Personal Information when a child chooses to submit either. In addition, a child may respond to multiple choice questions and record the date a process was finished. Only the child’s parent can view the information submitted by a child.
We may use a child’s Personal Information:

The child’s information is not public and is not shared with any third parties or with anyone outside of the school context.
