Privacy Policy

Our Commitment To Privacy

Your privacy is important to us, whether you are a parent or child. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested. Our website, Dystopia 2153 (the “Service”), may be used by children under 18 years old. We will not knowingly collect information from children under 18 without the consent of the child’s parent or guardian.

The Information We Collect

This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on Dystopia 2153 website (the “Dystopia 2153” or “Service”). On some pages of the Service, you can register, post comments, submit content, and access materials which will be identified by your screen name or username. The types of personal information collected at these pages are: Name, Physical Address, Email address, and billing information when purchasing the product.

The Way We Use Information

Personal Information: We use information to establish your Dystopia 2153 accounts, provide support for user’s accounts, and to update users on updates and changes to Dystopia 2153 site. We use return email addresses to answer the inquires we receive. Such addresses and numbers are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

Non-identifying User Information: We use non-identifying and aggregate information to:
• Better design our website
• Better design our educational content
• Better design educational design, teaching tools and assessment tools
• Run research studies

Sharing with Partners

For example, we may tell a partner that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we will not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 18. If you are not of legal age to form a binding contract (in many jurisdictions, this age is 18), you may only use our website and disclose information to us with your parent’s or legal guardian’s express consent.

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data without your consent, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.

We do not share or sell Personal Data with third parties.

A note to parents: Once parental consent is granted, the child will have full access to the Product, including access to communication services like email, instant messaging and online message boards and may be able to communicate freely with other users of all ages. We will not require a child to disclose any more information than is reasonably necessary to participate on the Dystopia 2153 Site. You can review your child’s information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection of information or use of the site by your child. By agreeing to allow us to use your child’s information, you may prohibit that disclosure to third parties unless such use is deemed part of the Dystopia 2153 product. Parents can change or revoke the consent choices previously made, and review, edit, or request the deletion of their children's personal data by contacting us as described immediately below.

Note to educators: We are committed to helping you and your school division comply with applicable privacy laws. Please note that we will not collect any data which is not de-identified if the Service is licensed by an educational institution or school division. Any data created during classroom use, such as the collection of names and email addresses, will be controlled solely by the institution or school division. Only de-identified information will be accessible to Dystopia2153 when provided to us by an institution or school division.

We are COPPA and FERPA compliant. 

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that provides the corrected information. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
