When we operate the iRemix Platform and provide services to Network Creators and Third Party Application Developers, we may collect, use, and retain information, including Personal Information and Network Member Data, that you disclose to Network Creators when you use iRemix Networks. When you become a member of an iRemix Network, you provide Personal Information to us. If you add a Third Party Application to your iRemix Network or your profile, we may provide certain Personal Information to that Third Party Application Developer.
You must register for a Remix ID to become a Network Member, sign up for an iRemix Network, or sign up as a Third Party Application Developer. When you register for a Remix ID, you must provide certain Personal Information, including your name, email address, date of birth, and a password that you select. If you create an iiRemix Profile all Personal Information that the user selects to display will be included in your iRemix Profile which minimally must include your full name and a profile image, and where additional requirements may be set by administrators of Network Creators, will be available to other Network Members, your iRemix Network and a Third Party Application Developer as applicable. Your Remix profile will display all of the iRemix Networks that you belong to, but your iRemix Profile is only visible to you and those within your network or with whom you invite to connect with you.
Please note that even though your iRemix Profile is only visible to you, that information, including Personal Information, will still be accessible by Remix. Your iRemix Profile is separate from any additional profile you may create on a iRemix Network.
When you sign up for a iRemix Network, you will be asked to sign in to the iRemix Network with your Remix ID. The Personal Information in your Remix ID (except for your password) is provided to the Network Creator, regardless of the privacy option you choose for your profile on that particular iRemix Network. Your full name and profile image from your Remix ID is pre-populated into your "My Page" on iRemix Networks you join and into your iRemix Profile upon sign-in. Additionally, certain Personal Information (such as your profile image) you may have provided in your iRemix Profile is pre-populated in your My Page when you sign up for any new iRemix Networks.
The Personal Information in your My Page may be accessed by the Network Creator and all Users who browse the iRemix Network if both the iRemix Network and your My Page are public within each network you participate in. However, you can change the privacy level for your profile on any iRemix Network you are a Member of to suit your choice by changing the privacy settings of your My Page in any iRemix Network. Please note, however, that even if the general public or other Network Members cannot view your My Page if you choose to limit the viewers of your My Page, Remix, the Network Creator of that particular iRemix Network, and administrators designated by the Network Creator can view that information.
You also may have other opportunities to voluntarily provide Personal Information to us. For example, if you contact us to provide feedback or request support, we will collect your email address and other Personal Information that you provide.
Network Creators may also request additional Personal Information from Network Members who register with them for their iRemix Networks. Certain Personal Information collected from Network Members will be retained in the Network Member's My Page for that iRemix Network. Network Creators may designate responses to some or all of the questions that they ask their Network Members to respond to as "private." Network Creators may also elect to change settings on the responses to questions by their Network Members from "private" to "public" at a later date. If requests for additional information are marked "private”, they will be viewable only by Remix, the Network Creator, and its administrators. Network Creators may also designate the iRemix Networks that they create as private, limiting Network Members to those that they approve or specifically invite. Please note, however, that while the general public cannot view private iRemix Networks or your My Page for private iRemix Networks, Remix, Network Members of that iRemix Network, the Network Creator, and its administrators can view this information.
To become a Network Creator, you must register for a Remix ID and create a password. Network Creators must supply the passwords they have created to access certain administrative controls for their iRemix Networks. If you are a Network Creator and choose to purchase Premium Services or support on Remix (e.g., additional storage or bandwidth, or use of a custom second-level domain name), you must provide your credit card information and billing address. We use this billing information to process your transactions.
Websites visited before visiting Remix or an iRemix Network may place Personal Information within the URL of your browser during a visit to that previous website. We may unintentionally collect that information as part of referring URL information that it collects.
When you send messages, make postings, or otherwise post or transmit any Content within an iRemix Network, others who visit or use that iRemix Network may access any Personal Information within such Content. Within your Network Member settings for each iRemix Network (accessible at the "Settings" link) you may be able to modify your privacy settings for certain types of Content that you make available on that iRemix Network. For example, you may be able to specify that your photos, videos, and blog posts will be viewable by anyone, by your "friends" only, or only by you. Please be aware that while the general public or other Network Members cannot view Content that you specify as viewable only by you, Remix, the Network Creator of that particular iRemix Network, and its administrators can view this information.
We collect and maintain posts, messages, and other Content that you have posted or transmitted to a iRemix Network, as well as information about that Content and your interaction with it. Some of this information, such as your latest activity on the iRemix Platform or an iRemix Network will be made available to Network Creators and may also be made available to other members of, and visitors to, the iRemix Platform as well as to Third Party Application Developers.
In any event, because you may voluntarily disclose Personal Information when you post or otherwise transmit Content, please be careful with the information that you choose to disclose.
We do not allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, such as Google AdSense, to serve advertisements within iRemix Networks.
We may use Personal Information to operate, provide, improve, and maintain the iRemix Platform and our other services and systems and to develop new products and services; to prevent abuse and fraud; to personalize and display relevant content on the iRemix Platform; to send you administrative messages and information about iRemix Networks, content, and Remix services in which we believe you may be interested; and for other administrative and internal business purposes.
We may provide Personal Information to third parties for their use in performing internal business functions (e.g., payment processing, maintenance, security, data analysis, email transmission, or data hosting) on our behalf.
As described in greater detail in the Remix Applications Terms, when a Network Member or the Network Creator of an iRemix Network of which that Network Member is a part adds a Third Party Application to his or her iRemix Network profile, we may disclose certain Personal Information in that Network Member's iRemix Profile, Remix ID, and certain Network Member Data, to the Third Party Application Developer of the Third Party Application. Except when a Third Party Application is added by a Network Creator to the Network Creator's entire iRemix Network, including to every Network Member's My Page, Network Members and Network Creators may opt-out of having Personal Information from their iRemix Profile and Remix ID shared with Third Party Application Developers. But if they do, they will be prevented from adding Third Party Applications to their My Page and their iRemix Network. Additionally, Third Party Applications may require, or may otherwise allow Network Members to provide, other forms of Personal Information to the Third Party Application Developers of Third Party Applications. Please see the Remix Applications Terms for additional information regarding the provision of Personal Information to Third Party Application Developers.
We may disclose Personal Information if we believe in good-faith that we are required to do so, for example, to comply with an applicable law, regulation, subpoena, or other judicial or administrative order or process. We may also disclose Personal Information in special circumstances, e.g., when we have reason to believe it is appropriate or necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms; to protect the rights, property, safety, or security of Remix, any individual(s), our infrastructure or services; to defend ourselves against a third party claim; or to assist law enforcement agencies.
We use industry standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of Personal Information and damage to our information technology systems and networks. Despite our good faith efforts, however, we can’t guarantee that Personal Information will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. We also can’t guarantee that we can prevent "hackers" or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing our systems or obtaining information. Consequently, we do not assume any liability to third parties whose information you introduce or store on the iRemix Platform or which you post or transmit in any Content. To help maintain the security of your Remix ID, please keep your password secure.
If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you via email so you can take appropriate protective steps, and, as part of the Terms, you agree that we may email you regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues. If a security systems breach occurs, we also may post a notice on our homepage (www.remixlearning.com), or elsewhere on the iRemix Platform.
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") protects the online privacy of children under 13 years of age. Remix does not knowingly collect or maintain Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13, unless or except as permitted by law. Nevertheless, we know that Learning Networks are or will be created by Network Creators and that these Learning Networks may have users under the age of 13. We require all Network Creators to abide by all Laws, including COPPA, if they are applicable to their Learning Network. To the extent we store Personal Information of any person under the age of 13 at the request of any Network Creator, that information will not be retrievable by us in the ordinary course and will not be used by us except as permitted by Law.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a Network Member, please contact Remix at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to have that child's account terminated and information deleted. You should also contact the Network Creator to inform them about your wishes.
The following are some resources that may help parents and legal guardians in monitoring and limiting your children's access to certain types of material on the Internet. While we do not endorse these products, we provide information about them as a public service to our community.
You may, at any time, update, correct, or delete your Personal Information that we store by signing in to the iRemix Platform and updating you Personal Information in your profile. You may also update, correct, or delete Personal Information within your Me Pages on individual iRemix Networks. Selected iRemix Networks may have disabled updates and require Network Members to contact an administrator with the Network Creator to make changes.
Note: even if you update or remove Personal Information you have provided to us or to any Network Creator, your Personal Information may be retained in our backup files and archives for a reasonable period of time for legal purposes.
We may send you administrative messages, and updates regarding your Remix ID account, the iRemix Platform, and our services, by email. Network Creators may also send you administrative or promotional messages to the extent permitted by applicable Law and the Terms. When you are signed in to an iRemix Network, you may indicate your preferences regarding certain administrative email messages in your profile. If you have a Remix ID account, you can also opt out of email notifications from iRemix Networks by visiting your iRemix Profile.
The Terms prohibit Network Creators and other Members from engaging in any activity involving the sending of email in violation of applicable Law, including CAN-SPAM. Violations of these policies may result in immediate termination of service and legal action against any senders or initiators of such messages.
We offer email masking and relay when Members choose to communicate with other Members on iRemix Networks to reduce third party email harvesting of email addresses for purposes of sending unsolicited commercial email ("spamming").
14. THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
The iRemix Platform, and iRemix Networks, may contain links to websites and services provided by third parties. Any Personal Information you provide on third-party sites or services is provided directly to that third party and is subject to that third party's policies governing privacy and security. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third-party sites or services. We encourage you to learn about third parties' privacy and security policies before providing them with Personal Information.
You also agree that your personal information may be processed in the country where it was collected as well as other countries (including the United States) where laws regarding processing of personal information may be less stringent than the laws in your country.
You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that, to the extent we have it, a copy of your Personal Information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. We promise that promptly after receiving your request, all Personal Information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media will be updated, corrected, changed, or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as reasonably practicable.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
