Any features, tools, materials, or other services offered from time to time in connection with this service are referred to collectively as the "Kodiak Content." "Kodiak Content" includes tools and features that you may use from within another application that makes use of the Kodiak SDK, reffered to as a "partner application."
We collect information from the following sources: information you give us, such as registering on our website or within a partner application; information collected automatically when you visit our website, use one of our partner applications while logged in to our service, or use other Kodiak Content; and information from other commercially available sources, such as data aggregators and public databases, or our business partners.
What kinds of information does Kodiak collect?
As part of the registration process, developers, parents, and teachers are allowed to register by providing a user name, password, and email address. Parents or teachers may also enter information relating to one of more students or children that use educational apps. The information provided by the parent or teacher may include, but is not limited to, the student's or child's first name, birthday, and grade level in school.
In addition, Kodiak automatically collects information about your interactions with our website and the Kodiak Content. If you are signed in to a Kodiak partner application, Kodiak collects information submitted by the application that is related to your use of that application. In general, this includes the account of the student or child currently playing, the questions they have answered, the time they are spending answering each question and using the app, and other information deemed relevant by the developer. We also collect other information the developer may be interested in, such as the version of the application you are using, the type of device, IP address, and information about other software and hardware attributes. This information is aggregated and shared with developers with personally identifiable information removed. If you are not signed in while using a partner application, that application submits no information about your children or their activites to our service.
On the web, Kodiak may automatically receive and record information from your computer, including your IP address, software and hardware attributes, the page you request, and cookie information, as discussed below in the section titled "How are cookies and other technologies used to collect information?". We also track demographic data that will help us understand more about our users.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from users under the age of 13. In the event that a user identifies himself or herself as a child under the age of 13, we will not collect, store or use such information and will delete in a secure manner, any personal information of such user.
