Your privacy is very important to us at Strong Brain (a web site operated by Applied Logic Systems, Inc.)
This document outlines our policy concerning personally identifiable information about
you that we may gather when you use our web site, and the ways we use and do not use
Information obtained from technology
When you visit any of the pages of our web site, Strong Brain servers automatically
record information including the URL, IP address, browser type, and the page that
servers place on the disks of computers whose users visit web sites. We may
use transient ("session ID") cookies to provide continuity from page to page; these
cookies expire when you close your browser. We may also use persistent cookies
to enable our servers to recognize your browser when you return to our site after
your first visit.
Information obtained from user registration
A great many of the features on the Strong Brain web site do not require
registration for their access and use. However, if you are interested in using
certain features or services of its web site (for example, posting replies and/or
questions on the Reading or Community pages, or having Strong Brain
maintain performance records for you), you need to provide us with certain
personal information about yourself, specifically, your name and email address.
We use your email address to send your password to you (if you have forgotten it
and request us to send it to you), as well
as to send significant announcements concerning either your account, or
the overall operation of the Strong Brain site. We will NOT send you any other
email unless you request it using the user profile tools after you have registered.
We allow you to request (opt-in) that we keep records of your activities on our site in order
to assist you in your use of the Strong Brain facilities. If you tell us (using
the user profile setting tools) that you do NOT want us to keep such records, we
will not keep any such records. If you later change your mind and tell us that you
want us to keep records for you, we will start keeping the records at that time.
If you have told us to keep records for you, and then change your mind and tell us
you do not want us to keep records for you, we will stop keeping your records and
will also endeavor to expunge your previous records in a reasonably timely manner.
There are two kinds of records you can ask us to keep for you:
- Performance records. Many of the Strong Brain pages involve activities which
can be scored in one way or another, such as the Arithmetic Workout page or the
Vocabulary and Analogy Exercises pages, or most of the game pages. For these
pages we can keep such basic records as number right and wrong and time spent, or
the number of games started together with number of wins and losses. On the
user profile page, and on most of the exercise or game pages, you can request displays
of your summary performance over time for these kinds of pages, allowing you to see the
changes in your performance.
- Reading records. For the Reading page, we can keep a record of the
stories you have downloaded, allowing you to easily determine which stories
you have previously read.
Sharing and release of personally-identifiable information
Our purpose in storing any information about you is to provide service to you.
Consequently, unless you explicitly request it, we will not send you email other
than important information concerning your account or the operation of the
Strong Brain web site. We will not share your personal information with
third parties unless you explicitly request that we do so.
Applied Logic Systems, Inc., acting as Strong Brain, may disclose any necessary
user information, including personally identifiable information, if we believe
that we are required to do so by law or that doing so may be necessary to protect the
property, rights, or safety of ourselves, visitors to our web sites, or other persons.
