Respecting your privacy is critically important to achieving our mission of motivating every student. These are our guiding privacy principles:
Protecting students and their personal information
How Entelechy Collects Personal Information
The information that Entelechy collects depends on the nature of the services you request. All interactions with the Entelechy website or app produce metadata that may identify you or could be identifiable information when paired with other information about you. In every case, Entelechy strives to collect only the minimum necessary information from you as necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Entelechy or required by law. Visitors to the Entelechy website or app may always refuse to supply personally identifying information, however, doing so may prevent you from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Information you provide to Entelechy
Accounts are a prerequisite to using Entelechy, and are required to access some features and save progress over time. If you create an account, Entelechy saves the account information you provide. This information may include: an email address, a parent or guardian email address, first name, last name, and occupation.
You may choose not to provide specific information or to delete or modify it at any time. These actions may prevent you from engaging with specific services or features that require this information. Additional information may be provided to Entelechy if you communicate with our support team, participate in user research, marketing campaigns or sweepstakes, or otherwise use the services.
If you engage in a financial transaction with Entelechy, you may be asked to provide additional information such as a credit card number, billing address or full name.
As you use the service, you may also create academic content including quizzes and certain forms of responses. This information is not typically personally identifying, but it may be deleted either by the relevant account holder or by reaching out to our team at email@example.com.
Information collected automatically
We receive and store some types of information automatically as you use the service. These may include device information such as device model, operating system, and device identifiers such as IDFA and UDID.
Entelechy also collects log information as you use the service. These data may include information regarding how and when you use the service and your browser type, preferred language, time zone, referring site, and internet protocol (IP) address.
We may use your IP address to generate a general approximation of your location to provide the service. Examples include providing the right version of Entelechy based on your state or country and helping teachers select their school when they sign up. Entelechy does not collect fine location data such as GPS or bluetooth beacons.
As described above, we limit data collection to what we need to provide the requested services. Entelechy does not knowingly collect data considered sensitive by GDPR such as those related to race or ethnicity, health and biometric information, or political affiliation. In addition to these categories, we do not collect free or reduced lunch eligibility.
