What information do we collect and why?
The First Pathways Game collects Personally Identifiable Information and other information regarding visitors to our Services. “Personally Identifiable Information” is information that WFK has collected and can reasonably link to a specific person or device. We may collect Personally Identifiable Information or other information directly from you, as well as automatically through your use of our Services.
Information we collect directly from you.
To play the First Pathways Game when you log onto the Services for the first time you need to complete a registration form that asks for your first name and your email address. Your email address is used as an unique identifier. The Site uses a one-way encryption of your email address so that it is converted to a jumble of letters and numbers that provide an unique identifier, but can not be unencrypted. Thus, we will never be able to see your email address, and you will not receive any emails from us.
On the registration page there is a box to check if you are a participant in a study. If you check this box a separate page will come up and you will be asked to click which study you are participating in. You will also be asked for your study participant number (that will have been given to you by the study administrators).
Information we collect automatically.
We automatically collect the following Personally Identifiable Information or other information about your use of our Services including the pages of the game you view, links you click, and length of time you visit our Services.
Privacy of children
We do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any Personal Information through the Services. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Information to us through the Services, please contact us to request that we delete that child’s Personal Information from our Services.
We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce this Policy by instructing their children never to provide Personal Information through the Services without their permission. We also ask that all parents and legal guardians overseeing the care of children take the necessary precautions to ensure that their children are instructed to never give out Personal Information when online without their permission.
How we use your information
Your first name is used by the First Pathways Game to personalize interactions with you and ask what you want to do as you use the game. The study participant number will allow your use of the First Pathways Game to be linked to your study records by study administrators.
Disclosure of information
Information about Services use by users not enrolled in a study is not identifiable and it is not shared with anyone. If you are enrolled in a study, we will share records of your use of the game (including number of times you access the game, pages of the game you view, links you click, and length of time you visit our Site) with the study administrators only. We will not share any personally identifiable information with third parties and will not share any information with unaffiliated third parties. Service Providers are not authorized to use or disclose your information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. Service Providers are given the information they need only in order to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose any of the provided information for their own purposes.
Retention of information
We will retain and use your Personal Information for the period necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to enforce our agreements, resolve disputes, and unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. Once the retention period expires, Personal Information shall be deleted. Therefore, the right to access, the right to erasure, the right to rectification, and the right to data portability cannot be enforced after the expiration of the retention period.
Do Not Track signals
Some browsers incorporate a Do Not Track feature that signals to websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Tracking is not the same as using or collecting information in connection with a website. For these purposes, tracking refers to collecting personally identifiable information from consumers who use or visit a website or online service as they move across different websites over time. How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. As a result, the Services are not yet set up to interpret or respond to Do Not Track signals communicated by your browser. Even so, as described in more detail throughout this Policy, we limit our use and collection of your Personal Information.
We secure information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We maintain reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards in an effort to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification, and disclosure of Personal Information in our control and custody. However, no data transmission over the Internet or wireless network can be guaranteed.
Therefore, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, you acknowledge that (i) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (ii) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and the Services cannot be guaranteed; and (iii) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party, despite best efforts.
Location and storage of information
WFK controls and operates the Services from locations in the United States. By using the Services, you consent to the transfer of your Personally Identifiable Information and other information within and to the United States.
In the event we become aware that the security of the Services has been compromised or Users’ Personal Information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity, including, but not limited to, security attacks or fraud, we reserve the right to take reasonably appropriate measures, including, but not limited to, investigation and reporting, as well as notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities. In the event of a data breach, we will make reasonable efforts to notify affected individuals if we believe that there is a reasonable risk of harm to the User as a result of the breach or if notice is otherwise required by law. When we do, we will post a notice on the Services.
Changes and amendments
We reserve the right to modify this Policy or its terms related to the Services at any time at our discretion. When we do, we will post a notification within the Services. An updated version of this Policy will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Policy unless otherwise specified. Your continued use of the Services after the effective date of the revised Policy (or such other act specified at that time) will constitute your consent to those changes. However, we will not, without your consent, use your Personal Information in a manner materially different than what was stated at the time your Personal Information was collected.
Acceptance of this policy
You acknowledge that you have read this Policy and agree to all its terms and conditions. By accessing and using the Services and submitting your information you agree to be bound by this Policy. If you do not agree to abide by the terms of this Policy, you are not authorized to access or use the Services.
