We respect your privacy and that of your children and students.

Zyrobotics is committed to helping young children learn STEM concepts in the most effective way possible. We believe the ideal way to achieve this goal is by developing accessible technology that enables interaction based on each child’s unique abilities. This privacy policy has been created to provide you with information about how we collect and use information that you may provide through our apps or websites, the circumstances under which we may disclose that information, as well as your choices concerning that information.

1. Effective Date: This Privacy Policy is effective 10/1/2017, and applies to any and all information that a user may have provided to Zyrobotics through our apps or websites. Zyrobotics reserves the right, at its discretion and/or in compliance with applicable law if needed, to change, modify, amend, add, or remove portions of its Privacy Policy at any time. When required by law, we will advise you of such changes. Modifications will be effective immediately, and will apply to your continuing use. Use of any of the Zyrobotics’ apps or websites after the posting of any changes to the Privacy Policy will constitute acceptance, acknowledgment and agreement to the respective changes.

2. Your Consent: Please read this privacy policy carefully. By accessing and using our apps and websites, you acknowledge that you have read and understood this Privacy Policy, and agree to be legally bound by it. If you do not agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy, please refrain from using our apps or websites.

3. Personal Information and Children: We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. We do allow parents and teachers to set up STEMDash learning profiles for their children or students in order to collect learning data that is saved to our server. We do not share this information with any other company.

If Zyrobotics learns that we have inadvertently gathered personal information from children under the age of 13 without an adult’s permission, we will take reasonable measures to promptly delete any such data from Zyrobotics’ records.

4. Personal Information and Adults: Through our apps, Zyrobotics may collect the following information from parents and teachers:

  • Parent’s user name
  • Email address
  • Username of your child(ren) and/or student(s)
  • Age and/or grade level of your child(ren) and/or student(s)
  • Providing the above information is part of establishing a STEMDash learning profile for your children/students. Your name/username, if provided, would be used for keeping track of your information and your child(ren)’s in-game data such as frequency of play, accuracy, mistakes and their strategies. This information will be used to prepare personalized reports to parents and teachers about their child(ren)’s progress and learning. Your email address is collected only if you subscribe to our newsletter or for email updates and reports. We include information on how to unsubscribe from such communications within every email that we send.

    We ask for your child(ren)’s username, age(s) and grade(s) so that we may personalize communications sent to you related to your child(ren)’s and/or student(s)’s progress within the app. Such information is optional. You can contact us by email to request to see or delete any personally identifiable information we have stored. To make such a request, please email us at info@zyrobotics.com. If needed, we may ask for additional information to verify your identity prior to completing such a request.

    5. Collection of Non-Personal Information: Zyrobotics collects certain non-personally identifiable information from our users, such as device ID (UDID). We do not combine personal information with non-personal information. Anonymous, non-personal data is used for internal operations, such as analyzing the effectiveness of our apps, determining any issues of app crashes, and for other, similar purposes.

    6. Third Parties: Zyrobotics uses third parties to assist in the analysis of our apps and website, such as Google Analytics, through anonymous data. Anonymous information provided to third parties is used for the purpose of measuring page views, number of visitors, and similar statistical measures. The anonymous information is collected through features of the apps and through cookies on our websites.

    A “cookie” is a small bit of record-keeping information that websites often store on a user’s computer. You can disable cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent to your device. Zyrobotics requires that any third party comply with this privacy policy. In addition, we do not sell, rent, share or transfer any of the information collected to third parties in ways other than described in this policy.

    7. Third Party Terms and Conditions: By using our apps or websites, you may be subject to third party terms and conditions and privacy policies, including but not limited to application stores, mobile software platforms, and social networking services. Providing links to any such third parties does not constitute Zyrobotics’ sponsorship of, or affiliation with, such third parties. Certain features that Zyrobotics may offer, such as social networking, may use third party services to provide authentication with a social networking ID. In connection with such use, certain personally identifiable user and/or membership data may be transferred automatically to and from Zyrobotics’ apps. Such features are only offered within the parent section of the apps. The parent section of Zyrobotics’ apps contains links to Zyrobotics’ website, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channel.

    8. Data Retention: Zyrobotics only retains the data collected pursuant to this Privacy Policy for the period of time necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. After such time, Zyrobotics deletes all such data within a time frame that is reasonable for our operating requirements. When necessary, Zyrobotics may retain data to the extent needed to resolve disputes, enforce Zyrobotics user agreements, and comply with technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the security, integrity and operation of the apps.

    9. Disclosure of Data: If needed in order to operate our apps, personal and non-personal information we collect may be shared with our service providers who support and administer the internal operations of our apps, such as maintaining user accounts and providing customer service. All such service providers are required to agree to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of the data, and may not use it for any other purposes.

    We also reserve the right to release personal information to comply with a judicial process or law enforcement investigation, or in connection with a corporate change or dissolution, including for example a merger, acquisition, reorganization, consolidation, bankruptcy, liquidation, sale of assets, wind-down of business or related due diligence. Any such release of data will be done in compliance with applicable law, and only if the receiving party agrees to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of that information.

    10. Security: Zyrobotics follows reasonable and generally accepted industry standards regarding data security, and we maintain reasonable safeguards to attempt to ensure the confidentiality, security and integrity of the information in Zyrobotics’ possession in accordance with applicable law. Only those persons with a need to process user data in connection with the fulfillment of their tasks in accordance with the purposes of this Privacy Policy and for the purposes of performing technical maintenance have access to user data in Zyrobotics’ possession.

    Zyrobotics stores all data and information in secure operating environments and implements reasonable and generally accepted industry practices to prevent unauthorized access to the data. Please note that Zyrobotics cannot and does not guarantee the security of materials or information transmitted to Zyrobotics by users over the Internet or through wireless connections.
