Your Separate Connections With Other Businesses

The Information We Gather

We may get information about you from you directly, from third parties, or automatically when you use our Services. We may combine the information we get from these different places about you or from you.

Information You Give Us Directly: There are a few places on our Services where you can give us information directly. We’ll explain what those places are below.

Blogs and comments are both public forums.

As a service to our users, we have Blogs and Comments, which are places where people with similar interests can share information and help each other, send messages, review our products, and comment on editorial content. Information posted in Blogs and Comments is open to the public and can be seen, shared, or collected by third parties who don’t follow our Terms of Use or this Privacy Policy or who may use the information to send you unwanted messages. We may also keep this information for as long as the law lets us in order to settle disputes, help customers, and solve problems. Before sharing any personal information in a public place, you should give it some thought.


At times, you may be asked to fill out surveys. These are usually meant to get general information, like how you feel about a certain article or set of features on our site. Because the information from these surveys is linked to each subscriber and used internally to improve our products or market our services better, it is up to the subscriber to take part or not.

Other Data You Give Us Through Our Services

We will also keep any other information you give us through our Services, such as your name, email address, job title, phone number, school or organization name, account type, payment type, and the contents of any message you send through our Services.

The information we get from other sources

You can make an account with us by logging in with a third-party account, such as Facebook, Google, Amazon, or Clever. By logging in through a third-party account, you give permission to access your name, email address, and public profile ID from that third-party account. This is explained on the permissions page when you log in.

Automatically, we collect the following:

Cookies, pixel tags, local storage (like browser web storage or application data caches), databases, and server logs are some of the ways we gather and store information. This information may include, but is not limited to, account information, IP address, domain name, browser type and operating system, web pages viewed while logged in, links clicked, time spent on our Services, and the referring URL, or the web page that led a user to our Services. We will also keep track of what users do on our Services, such as which games they play, how many questions they get right and wrong, and what they download.

Having our contractors and agents keep track of

We use Google Analytics and other third-party software to help us collect and analyze information about how our customers use our website. For the purpose of providing their services, these service providers act as our limited agents. Any information that these third parties get from our users or from us stays ours and is covered by this privacy policy. We don’t let these service providers look at, share, print, distribute, or refer to the session data of people who use our Services, unless it’s in our contracts with them or if the law says they have to. Check out the Google Privacy Policy and the Sales force Marketing Cloud Privacy Policy to learn more about how these service providers handle your privacy.

Our advertisers are following us.

There are many different kinds of companies that advertise with us, such as financial services companies (like brokerage firms, banks, and mortgage companies), companies that make computers, software, cars, toys, and retail stores. Our advertisers and advertising vendors display targeted advertisements. Even though we don’t give the advertiser or advertising vendor any personal information, if you interact with or click on an ad, you agree that the advertiser may think you meet the criteria used to target the ad.

Advertisers and advertising companies that serve ads on our Services or other services may use their own cookies or other tracking technologies in addition to the ones we or our agents put there. We are not in charge of how these advertisers and vendors use or protect your personal information.

We use third-party advertising networks like Google AdX, Adsense, and others to put ads on the pages you visit on our Services. If you want to learn more about how these companies handle privacy, you can read their policies on their sites. If you don’t want any of these companies to collect and analyze your information, you can opt out by following the steps in their privacy policies.

When you visit our Services, we let other companies show you ads and/or collect some anonymous information. During your visits to our Services and other websites or apps, these companies may use non-personally identifiable information (like click stream information, browser type, time and date, and the subjects of ads you clicked on or scrolled over) to show you ads about goods and services you are more likely to be interested in. Most of the time, these companies get this information from a cookie or a third-party web beacon. Visit to learn more about behavioral advertising or to stop getting this kind of advertising.

We have put safety measures in place to protect the information we gather. Please know that no data security measure, no matter how hard we try, can guarantee 100% safety.

We’re not responsible if your password gets lost, stolen, or hacked, or if someone else uses it to do something on your account without your permission.

If you are a parent, teacher, or school administrator, we encourage you to talk to your kids about online safety and how they can protect themselves online. Changes coming to this policy on privacy

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time, so please look it over before you share personal information on one of our Services.

These polls are for the advertising partner to use, and people can choose whether or not to take part. We don’t promise to keep private information that people give us voluntarily in response to a survey or poll.
