FUNNIX PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy applies to your use of the FUNNIX website at www.funnix.com (“Site”), the FUNNIX web app based on the FUNNIX Beginning Reading DVD and FUNNIX Beginning Math DVD series (“Web App”) and any other products or services offered by FUNNIX via the Site (collectively with the Site and the Web App, “Products”), and describes how FUNNIX, LLC, an Oregon limited liability company (“FUNNIX,” “we,” “us,” or “our”), collects, uses, and protects your personal information. When you submit personal information to FUNNIX, whether through use or access to our Products or otherwise, you are consenting to the collection, use, transfer, and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.  If you have questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact FUNNIX using the contact information located at the end of this Privacy Policy.

1. Your Agreement.

Our Products are designed to be used as teaching tools by parents and educators and are not designed for self-directed study by children.  By using our Products, you affirm that you are at least eighteen years old.

2. Information Funnix Collects.

When you submit information to FUNNIX via the Web App or Site, use our Products, or otherwise correspond with us, FUNNIX receives and stores that information, including personal information. “Personal Information” includes any information you provide FUNNIX that could reasonably be used to personally identify you, including the following types of Personal Information:

2.1.     Information You Provide Directly to FUNNIX.  If you choose to contact us through our Site or use the Web App by registering for an account, as more fully described below, you will need to provide us with certain Personal Information about you, the account holder, including contact information.   While some of our Products are designed to assist you in teaching children, we will not ask you to provide any personally identifiable information of any child.  Our Products are designed to avoid any collection of such information.

2.2.     Individual Accounts. Individuals or private tutors accessing or using the Web App shall be required to create either a Family Account or a Tutor Account the first time they access the Web App in order to use the Web App (“Individual Account”).  A Family Account or Tutor Account may designate a specified number of users, depending on the type of account selected. To create an Individual Account, we require you to provide certain registration information such as your first and last name, postal address, and email address. If you purchase a paid subscription to our Products, you must also provide payment information.  In addition, as part of the registration process, your account will be verified through the use of a six-digit verification code sent to you via email.

2.3.     School Accounts. Schools accessing or using the Web App shall be required to create a School Account in order to use the Web App (“School Account”).  To create a School Account, an administrator for the account must provide certain registration information such as the school name, postal address, phone number, and e-mail address. If the School purchases a paid subscription to our Products, the School must also provide payment information.  The administrator may then designate a specified number of teacher-users, depending on the account selected, to access the School Account.  In addition, as part of the registration process, the account will be verified through the use of a six-digit verification code sent to you via email.

2.4.     Financial Information. When a purchase is made through the Web App, billing information is sent directly to our payment processor, Stripe. We never receive or store your full credit card information. Information provided to Stripe is subject to Stripe’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.  Stripe is committed to making reasonable efforts to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk associated with the processing of personal data.

2.5.     Technical Information.  We collect information about how you and your device interact with our Site and the Web App, including, for example: (1) referring source (i.e., the site you visited prior to visiting our Site); (2) date and time of access to our Site; (3) site pages visited and our Site features used, and the order of use; (4) type of computer or other operating device accessing our Site, type of browser used to access to our Site, and type of operating system you use; and (5) other similar information about the interaction between your browser and our Site.  We collect and store technical information through information gathering tools such as cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies.

a.     Cookies.  Session cookies are stored in a computer or other operating device’s memory during a user’s browsing session.  Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can block cookies at any time by changing the preferences in your browser and/or delete cookies from your hard drive or other operating device. You can also have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie.  Please refer to your browser for information on how to disable and control cookies.  If you choose to block or delete cookies, our Products may not function properly on your computer or other operating device, and certain features may not be available to you.

We use locally stored objects (sometimes referred to as “persistent” or “flash” cookies) stored in your hard drive or other operating device.  These flash cookies will not be deleted when you delete cookies from your browser, and even if you set your browser to not accept cookies, these cookies will still be stored on your hard drive or other operating device when you use our Products.  We may use this technology for purposes such as information security and fraud prevention, and to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from, and on our Products.  We do not use this technology for online behavioral advertising purposes.  If you choose to disable or otherwise control flash cookies, our Products may not function properly on your computer or other operating device, and certain features may not be available to you.

b.    Web Beacons.  We may use web beacons (also called clear GIFs or pixel tags) or similar technologies to collect technical information about your use of our Products and your viewing and use of emails we send to you.  Web beacons are graphic image files imbedded in a web page, Site feature, or email that provide a presence on such web page, feature, or email and send back to its home server information from the user’s browser.  The information collected by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our Site and opening our emails, and for what purposes.  For example, we might place a web beacon in a marketing email to notify us when a user clicks on the link in the email.  We do not collect Personal Information with web beacons, and we do not link information retrieved from web beacons directly with Personal Information you have given us.

3. How Funnix Uses Your Personal Information.

We use Personal Information as described in this Policy, including to provide the Products and to send you communications. We will also use your Personal Information for the purpose stated when we ask for such Personal Information.

3.1       Providing and Supporting our Site.  We may use Personal Information to help diagnose problems with our Products, to make our Site or the Web App more compatible with the technology used by our users, to analyze statistical use patterns, and to otherwise improve our Products. For example, we may use Personal Information to track what our users look at most so we can recognize and provide more of the desired content.

3.2       Communications.  We may use your Personal Information to provide you information about FUNNIX’s and its related companies’ products and Products that may be of interest to you, and where required by law, only if you have opted-in to receiving such information. We will never share your Personal Information with a third party for their own marketing or independent uses, except: (1) where you consent to such information sharing and (2) as described in this Privacy Policy.

If we use your Personal Information to send you marketing communications, we will provide you with an unsubscribe mechanism to opt-out of receiving future marketing communications, or you can contact us to request that we not send you marketing communications. If you request that we not contact you for marketing purposes (either by using the unsubscribe mechanism or contacting us), we reserve the right to contact you for non-marketing purposes relating to your use of our Products.

4. Information Shared with Third Parties.

Except in the circumstances described in this Policy, FUNNIX does not share, sell, rent, license, trade, or otherwise transfer or disclose your Personal Information with or to third parties for their promotional purposes.  We may share de-identified, aggregated information without restriction.

4.1.     Third-Party Service Providers. We share information with our third-party service providers who assist us by performing services related to our operation of our Products (such as hosting, data storage, payment processing, and security) and to conduct marketing on our behalf.

4.2.     Third-Party Analytics Services. We may use third-party analytics services to assist us in better understanding users of our Products. For example, we use these services to track and analyze certain information, such as feature usage. We only ever provide these service providers with (or allow these service providers to collect on our behalf) the technical information described in Section 2.5.  We use the information collected from these service providers to make our Products better and easier to use. The information we receive from these third parties may be re-associated with your Personal Information after we receive it back from these third parties.

4.3.     Merger or Reorganization. We may transfer your Personal Information to another organization or entity if FUNNIX is involved in a merger, acquisition, reorganization or other restructuring, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding in which information of our users are among the assets transferred. In this event, we will, if allowed, use reasonable efforts to notify you when your information is transferred to a third party (this notification may be made via email to you or by posting a prominent notice on the applicable website). Unless you consent otherwise, your Personal Information will remain subject to the promises made in this Privacy Policy, even after the transfer. But any information you provide after the transfer will likely be subject to a new privacy policy, and you should review that policy.

4.4.     Required by Law.  FUNNIX reserves the right to release your information if FUNNIX believes in good faith that (i) such release is required to comply with any law, rule, or regulation, or any search warrant, subpoena, court order, or similar legal process or (ii) disclosure is necessary to protect or enforce FUNNIX’s rights or property, to protect the rights or property of others, to protect your safety or the safety of others, in emergency situations, to defend against legal claims, to enforce our contractual or other rights, or to take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud.

5. Data Protection and Security.

FUNNIX uses commercially reasonable physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected through our Site.  However, FUNNIX cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to FUNNIX or guarantee that information we collect may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

We encrypt the transmission of Personal Information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. If you have any questions about security on our Site, please contact us at fun@funnix.com.

6. Choices about Your Personal Information.

Upon the request of a user, FUNNIX will delete all Personal Information within a commercially reasonable time.  We may keep de-identified information. If you have questions about data retention, please contact us via email or U.S. mail.
