Fair Information Practices
Our Sweeping Area app does not collect any personally identifiable information from users. However, it does enable users to post screenshots of their constructions to the Image Gallery site. This is a feature designed for classroom use of the app, to facilitate student discussions. This Image Gallery site displays screen shots that have been posted. It does not collect any personally identifiable information from users, nor does it associate any individual attribution or personally identifiable information to the screenshots that are uploaded.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.
Many of our users may be children under 13.
If you have concerns about your child's materials being on the site, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of the student's work. (Without a description, we have no way of identifying the student work in order to remove it.)
We adhere to the following COPPA tenet:
Parents can review, delete, manage or refuse with whom their child's information is shared through contacting us directly at email@example.com.
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:
We will notify the users via in-site notification within 7 business days
We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
CAN SPAM Act
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
Because we do not collect personally identifiable information, we are in accordance with the CAN SPAM Act.
