Types of Information Collected Online
Identifor does collect some personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") in order to provide the Services to help identify the abilities, skills and interests of our users. The choice regarding how much personally identifiable information you disclose is completely at your discretion. You are under no obligation to provide Personal Information, with the caveat that your refusal to do so may prevent you from using certain of the Site’s Services.
Information collected at account creation. Players wishing to play games beyond a certain difficult level or parents/educators/professional wishing to register children must create an account at Identifor’s Website(s) in a process that does request some personally identifiable information.
- The registration process will ask all individuals for their first name, last names, date of birth, gender and email address. Parents/educators/professionals will also be asked for address as part of the registration process. This information is used to allow compliance with the privacy of children under 13 (see the “Special Note about Children’s Privacy” section below) and when children become adults.
- Parents/educators/professionals wishing to register minor children will also be asked additional information about the child, including any clinical diagnoses the child may have (e.g., autism, ADHD, etc.), communications or motor challenges, etc.
- Information Collected Through Traffic Monitoring. Like many other websites, Identifor website(s) are equipped with a program that monitors site traffic. It automatically records every visitor's host, domain name, pages visited, length of user session, browser type and/or IP address. This program tracks the number of times the site(s) are visited, how many visitors come to the site(s), which parts of the site(s) are frequented, and the length of time of each visit. This information does not contain personally identifiable information and is used to evaluate areas of interest and to improve the website(s).
- Information collected during game play. In addition to the information you provide to us, our Website(s) and apps will also automatically collect and store information about a user accesses and performance using our Website(s) and games. For example, we collect and store data about the games you play and your performance in those games. We may also collect and store information such as your browser type, IP address, language, operating system, unique device identifier, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you view. Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, and a lot of data on a player’s actions while playing our games. We use this information calculate your abilities, skills and interest as presented in our Dashboard.
- Information collected by our surveys. If you choose to use our survey tools to collect information and input from others, survey responses are collected and stored to allow the creation of survey reports
- Information collected if you use our Companion app. If you choose to you use Companion to assist with various daily tasks such as reminders and navigation support, we collect information required to provide the support you seek (e.g., home, work or school address to enable navigation directions to those places, time and place of various activities to remind you of the activities, etc.).

We only collect and store your data to enable the creation of reports for you and to enable the services you seek from our tools.

Special Note about Children’s Privacy
COPPA is an abbreviation for the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) that was enacted by Congress in 1998 and required the Federal Trade Commission to issue and enforce regulations concerning children's online privacy. The amended Rule became effective on July 1, 2013. The primary goal of COPPA is to protect children's privacy online (and at the same time on mobile devices). Identifor complies with COPPA and the associated FTC regulations. COPPA requires that web site operators who may collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13, must request verifiable parental consent.
- When children under the age of 13 attempt to register on the Identifor site, they are directed to a webpage requesting their first and last names, their date of birth, e-mail address, username and password. In addition, they must provide a parent’s e-mail address so that Identifor can e-mail directly the parent to obtain consent for their child to register at Identifor and play our games.
- The parent may also register on the Identifor website to obtain access to their child’s personal information
- The parent/guardian may deactivate or cancel their child’s registration at any time by e-mailing Identifor at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Customer Service toll-free at (866) 557-9619.
- Identifor retains personal information collected online from a child for only as long as is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected and delete the information using reasonable measures to protect against its unauthorized access or use.

We also reserve the right to use non-personal information (e.g., de-identified or aggregate data) for any purpose. For example, we show aggregate performance measures to users to allow them to evaluate their performance against other Identifor users. Also, as Identifor collects and assesses data from games played and individuals’ performances, we may disclose performance statistics to our collaborators to evaluate, study, and improve the effectiveness of our programs and strengthen our capacity to serve users even more comprehensively. In these situations, all data is disclosed either in aggregate form or with information that can identify you removed.

We also use the information to manage and improve our Site, our games and our training.

You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose information by means of such features, and you agree to assume all responsibility for doing so.

Communication Options from the Website(s)
We communicate electronically with our users through two types of emails: mandatory system- generated emails and optional emails. System-generated emails are a direct response to a user's action on the site(s). Examples include: confirmation of account registration, username and password reminders, confirmation of subscriptions and purchases. Optional emails are selected by the user based on specific services chosen. Examples include product promotions, newsletters, and surveys.
You always have the choice not to receive optional email or other means of communication from the Identifor website(s).

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
