We want to take this opportunity to assure you that we do not collect, use or share your child’s information. Please take a moment to look through our privacy terms and please don’t hestiate to contact us with any questions.

Privacy Policy

Montessorium, Inc. (“Montessorium”) has adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain how Montessorium collects, stores, and uses the information collected in connection with Montessorium’s products, services and websites including, but not limited to Montessorium’s applications (together “Services”).
We take your privacy, and the safety of your children and family, very seriously. Should you have any questions relating to this Privacy Policy, please contact us at privacy@montessorium.com.

BY INSTALLING, USING, REGISTERING, OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND GIVE AN EXPLICIT AND INFORMED CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING, USE, AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL, USE, REGISTER, OR OTHERWISE ACCESS THE SERVICES.

Montessorium reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at reasonable times, so please review it frequently. Your continued use of Services will signify your acceptance of the changes to this Privacy Policy.

1. Non-personal data

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “non-personal data” means information that does not directly identify you. Additionally, non-personal data means “aggregate” and “de-personalized” information, which is data Montessorium collects about the use of Montessorium Services, from which any personally identifiable data has been removed.

Montessorium may use tools or third party analytical software to automatically collect and use certain non-personal data that does NOT directly enable Montessorium to identify you. The types of non-personal data Montessorium may collect and use include, but are not limited to: (i) device properties, including, but not limited to IP address, Media Access Control (“MAC”) address and unique device identifier or other persistent or non-persistent device identifier (“Device ID”); (ii) device software platform and firmware; (iii) mobile phone carrier; (iv) geographical data such as zip code, area code and coarse location; (v) application use progress, time used playing, score and achievements; (vi) other non-personal data as reasonably required by Montessorium to enhance the Services and other Montessorium products and services.

Montessorium may use and disclose to Montessorium’s partners and contractors the collected non-personal data for purposes of analyzing usage of the Services, managing and providing the Services and to further develop the Services and other Montessorium services and products.

You recognize and agree that the analytics companies utilized by Montessorium may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products relating to your activities. These companies (such as Google) collect and use information under their own privacy policies.
Montessorium may supplement your personal and non-personal data with data received from third parties in connection with demographic, market and other analytics surveys or services.

2. Ad Serving Technology

Montessorium reserves the right to use and disclose the collected non-personal data for purposes of advertisement to adults by Montessorium or Montessorium’s partners and contractors. Montessorium may employ third party ad-serving technologies that use certain methods to collect information as a result of ad serving through Services. Montessorium or third parties operating the ad-serving technology may use demographic and location information as well as information logged from your hardware or device to ensure that appropriate advertising is presented within the Service. Montessorium or third parties may collect and use data for this purpose including, but not limited to IP address (including but not limited to for purposes of determining your coarse location), Device ID, MAC, software, applications, hardware, browser information, internet and on-line usage information and in-app information. The foregoing data may be used and disclosed in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the privacy policy of the company providing the ad serving technology.

You recognize and agree that the advertising companies who deliver ads for Montessorium may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies. These ad serving technologies are integrated into Services; if you do not want to be subject to this technology, do not use or access Services. Although Montessorium takes commercially reasonable steps to instruct such advertising companies to comply with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, Montessorium does not have access to or control of third party technologies.

Montessorium may display to you behaviorally targeted advertising. If you wish to “opt out” of certain targeted advertising, please contact us at privacy@montessorium.com to express your desire to “opt out” of such advertising. Please note that your notification to “opt out” may not reach all Montessorium’s advertising partners and certain behaviorally targeted advertising may still be displayed to you. If you want to be certain that no behaviorally targeted advertisements are displayed to you, please do not use or access the Services. Additionally, please note that if you “opt out” it does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising. It just means that the advertising you see displayed will not be customized to you and your interests and may be less relevant to you.

3. Location Data

To the extent Montessorium makes location-enabled Services available and you use such Services, Montessorium may collect and process your location data to provide location-related Services and advertisements. For example, some add-ons or offers may be available at dedicated locations. Montessorium may use various technologies to determine location, such as GPS, Wi-Fi or other network-based data such as IP address. Your GPS geo-location is NOT accessed without your consent. Notwithstanding Montessorium’s partners who are providing location related parts of the Service, Montessorium will not share your GPS geo-location with third parties without your consent. To the extent Montessorium makes available GPS geo-location to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy, it will be provided anonymously. Please note that Montessorium may share your anonymous coarse location with its partners.

4. Personal Data

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal data” means personally identifiable information that specifically identifies you as an adult individual. We do NOT collect personal data on children.

Likely situations when you make personal data available to Montessorium include, but are not limited to: (i) non-child registration for Services; (ii) setting up an account with Montessorium; (iii) accessing Services using a third party ID, such as non-child social networking sites or gaming services; (iv) adults subscribing to newsletters; (v) adults purchasing a product or services through Montessorium’s online stores; (vi) adults requesting technical support; and (vii) otherwise through use of non-child Montessorium Services where personal data is required for use and/or participation.

The types of personal data may vary depending on the type of activity you are engaged in. The personal data Montessorium may collect, process and use about adults may include, but are not limited to your name, username, screen name, nick name, Montessorium Services’ or third party service ID, e-mail address, phone number, birthdate, sex, address, avatar image, photograph, credit card information, shipping information; and location.

Montessorium may use non-child personal and non-personal data, both individually and combined together, for purposes of analyzing usage of the Services, providing customer and technical support, managing and providing Services (including managing advertisement serving), customizing Montessorium’s communications and to further develop the Services and other Montessorium services and products. Montessorium may combine non-personal data with personal data.

Montessorium may use your non-child personal data to send messages to you with informative and/or commercial content about Montessorium’s services or third party products and services Montessorium thinks may be of interest to you, such as new features and services, special offers, and updated information.

5. Disclosure and Transfer of Personal Data

We do not collect, disclose, or transfer personal data on children. Non-child personal data may be disclosed in accordance with applicable legislation and this Privacy Policy. Additionally, Montessorium may disclose non-child personal data to its parent companies and its subsidiaries in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Montessorium may hire agents and contractors to collect and process non-child personal data on Montessorium’s behalf and in such cases such agents and contractors will be instructed to comply with our Privacy Policy and to use personal data only for the purposes for which the third party has been engaged by Montessorium. These agents and contractors may not use your personal data for their own marketing purposes. Montessorium may use third party service providers such as credit card processors, e-mail service providers, shipping agents, data analyzers and business intelligence providers. Montessorium has the right to share your personal data as necessary for the aforementioned third parties to provide their services for Montessorium. Montessorium is not liable for the acts and omissions of these third parties, except as provided by mandatory law. Montessorium may disclose your personal data to third parties as required by law enforcement or other government officials in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose you or Montessorium to legal liability. Montessorium may also disclose your personal data to third parties when Montessorium has a reason to believe that a disclosure is necessary to address potential or actual injury or interference with Montessorium’s rights, property, operations, users or others who may be harmed or may suffer loss or damage, or Montessorium believes that such disclosure is necessary to protect Montessorium’s rights, combat fraud and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on Montessorium. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Montessorium will make reasonable efforts to notify you of such disclosure through Montessorium’s website or in another reasonable manner.

6. Data Retention and Correctness

Montessorium retains the data collected pursuant to this Privacy Policy for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. Thereafter, if the collected data is no longer needed for purposes specified in this Privacy Policy, Montessorium deletes all aforementioned data in its possession within a reasonable timeframe. Montessorium does not verify the correctness of personal data.

Irrespective of the above, Montessorium may still retain some of the data to the extent such retention is necessary to resolve disputes, enforce Montessorium user agreements, and comply with technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the security, integrity, and operation of Services.

7. Tracking Technologies

Montessorium, and its affiliates, partners, analytics, or service providers, may use cookies, beacons, tags, scripts, locally shared objects, and other technologies. These technologies are generally used in analyzing trends, administering the site and the Services, tracking users’ use of the Services, and to gather demographic information about our user base. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies on an individual as well as an aggregate basis.

As is true of many websites and similar services, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include, among other information, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you, for analytics and support to improve the performance of the Services.

8. Third Party Terms and Conditions

Please note that your access to and use of the Services may be subject to certain third party terms and conditions and privacy policies, including but not limited to application stores, map data providers, mobile software platforms, on-line gaming platforms, social networking services and payment providers. You recognize and agree that Montessorium is not liable for any such third party terms and conditions and their use of your personal data.

Montessorium may in its discretion make available links through advertisements or otherwise enable you to access third party products or services. Please note that, while using such products or services, you are using products or services developed and administered by people or companies not affiliated with or controlled by Montessorium. Montessorium is not responsible for the actions of those people or companies, the content of their products or services, the use of information you provide to them, or any products or services they may offer. The fact that Montessorium is linking to those products or services does not constitute our sponsorship of, or affiliation with, those people or companies.

Montessorium may from time to time make available Montessorium’s partners’ services, such as sweepstakes or polls and such services may require you to disclose non-child personal data in order to register for and access such services. Such services will reasonably identify the partners at the point of where you are required to disclose personal data. If you at that point choose to disclose your non-child personal data, such personal data may be transferred directly, or via Montessorium, to such third parties and will be subject to the privacy policy and practices of such third parties. Montessorium is not responsible for the privacy practices and policies of such third parties and, therefore, you should review the privacy practices and policies of such third parties prior disclosing any personal data in relation to such services.

9. Safeguards

Montessorium works to ensure that all of its apps for children and families are compliant with the Child Online Privacy Protection Act. Montessorium follows generally accepted industry standards and maintains reasonable safeguards to attempt to ensure the security, integrity, and privacy of the information in Montessorium’s possession. Only those persons with a need to process your personal 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 your personal data in Montessorium’s possession. Personal data collected by Montessorium is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. However, no system can be 100% secure and there is the possibility that despite Montessorium’s reasonable efforts, there could be unauthorized access to your personal data. By using the Services, you assume this risk.

10. Other
Please be aware of the open nature of certain social networking and other open features of the Services Montessorium may make available to you. You may choose to disclose data about yourself in the course of contributing user generated content to the Services. Any data that you disclose in any of these forums, blogs, chats or the like is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality. Montessorium is not responsible for any personal data you choose to make public in any of these forums.

If you are under 13 years of age or a minor in your country of residence, please ask your legal guardian’s permission to use or access the Services. Montessorium encourages parents and/or guardians to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times. Montessorium does not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 13 years of age and if Montessorium learns that Montessorium has inadvertently gathered personal data from children under 13 years of age, Montessorium will take reasonable measures to promptly erase such personal data from Montessorium’s records.

Montessorium may store and/or transfer your personal data to its affiliates and partners in and outside of the United States in accordance with mandatory legislation and this Privacy Policy. Montessorium may disclose your personal data to third parties in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, the sale of substantially all of Montessorium’s stock and/or assets or other corporate change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process provided, however, that this Privacy Policy shall continue to govern such personal data.

11. Further information

Any and all use of your personal data by Montessorium is governed by State of South Dakota law and not the laws where you may be located.

In order to do so, please contact Montessorium at privacy@montessorium.com. Montessorium will need sufficient information from you to establish your identity and to verify your access request, and also to assist us in handling your request.

Montessorium regularly reviews its compliance with this Privacy Policy. If Montessorium receives a formal written complaint from you, Montessorium will attempt to contact you directly to address any of your concerns. Montessorium will cooperate with the appropriate governmental authorities, including data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the collection, use, transfer or disclosure of personal data that cannot be amicably resolved between you and Montessorium.
