What personal information we collect
In order to register for TabbieMath, students registering individually and not part of a school, parents must give their consent at the time of registration to provide us with the following details of themselves as well as their child(ren). Registrants who do not give this consent cannot provide us with their personal information or the names of the students and cannot use the Site.
- Name, email id and telephone number of parent
- Name & school of student(s)
- Demographic information such as city, state & country
- Children can upload profile picture (optional)
We require this information in order to correctly identify each Registrant as a Site user, manage their account and for certain other purposes detailed below.
Optionally, students are allowed to upload their profile pictures. The sole purpose of that is for the challenge modules when students can invite each other as buddies and set challenges with one another.
This site uses tools that collects your requests for pages and passes elements of them to search engines to assist them in indexing this site. We control the configuration of the tool and are responsible for any information sent to the search engines. Our tools do not send your personal information to the search engines.
You may request details of personal information which we hold about you. A small fee will be payable. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What we will do with your information
The information collected from Registrants is used for the following purposes:
- To send a confirmation notice to the Registrant of the registration;
- Upon the Registrant’s request, to reset a password for a lost or forgotten password;
- To respond to any questions, concerns or problems raised by the Registrant;
- To contact the Registrant about any problems with the Registrant’s account or conduct on the Site;
- To send out a TabbieMe newsletter or emails about the Site;
- To publish the names of winners and high performers on the Site or in the TabbieMe newsletter and to provide all the results data for each Registrant;
- To send prizes or certificates if any for participation and performance on the Site.
- To contact the school of students in case of prizes or certificates and also to verify student details.
- To announce winners of promotions in our website, facebook and social media.
We use the TabbieMe product newsletters or emails to notify our users of all the current events, changes, improvements, upgrades, rules, and so on, of the Site. In addition, we may notify our Registrants of new products and services that TabbieMe has designed and made available to the Registrants. In all communications, Registrants may opt out at any time by following the specific opt out instructions within the communications that we send.
TabbieMe will keep your personal information confidential and not sell or knowingly divulge your information to advertisers or any external third parties, unless:
- We are required to share your information with a third party in order to comply with law or to comply with a court order or subpoena;
- To enforce our website or event rules; or
- To protect the safety and security of our Registrants and our Site.
Generally we will only use your information within TabbieMe. However, sometimes we provide data on results to government education departments, peak bodies managing or representing schools, or schools themselves. We will require these third parties to comply strictly with our instructions and we will require that they do not have access to your personal information and not use the data for commercial purposes.
How long we hold your information
We will keep any personal information we collect from Registrants for as long as they are registered users of the Site. If a Registrant cancels their registration or it otherwise lapses after 3 years of not using the Site, we will only keep their personal information for the purposes of sending the Registrant information regarding TabbieMe’s other products and services if they agree to receive this information. Personal information is otherwise deleted or destroyed.
Keeping your personal information secure
TabbieMe is committed to information security. We will use all reasonable endeavours to keep Registrants’ personal information in a secure environment. For instance, each Registrant’s personal information is encrypted whilst being sent to our server at the time of registration. However, total security cannot be guaranteed due to the nature of the internet.
TabbieMe’s security measures are designed to assist in Registrants’ personal information not being accessed by unauthorised personnel, lost or misused. If you reasonably believe that there has been an unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information please let us know by contacting our support team.
In addition to personal information and results data, TabbieMe also collects anonymous information about Registrants and the activities of Registrants on the Site. Anonymous information is information that is not linked to the name of a user. This information is used to assist us in enhancing the learning resources and the information remains anonymous at all times.
When agreeing to the Site Terms and Conditions, Registrants grant TabbieMe the right to use this anonymous information for its own purposes, such as the preparation of statistical reports, provided TabbieMe otherwise complies with its obligations in respect of the use of personal information.
General Communication Principle
The only way that the site allows communication is for students to add each other as a buddy and set challenges to the buddy. There is no exchange of messages or chatroom connected with it. At all times, students are engaged in meaningful educative activity within a secure environment.
Public Displays of Names
TabbieMe strives to provide highly engaging websites for students. Given students have indicated their strong preference for their name to be shown publicly, in recognition of their achievements, we allow this – but we do not allow full names (ie First Name and Surname) to be shown publicly. We only show first name, state, school and country.
