1. Collection and Use of Personal Information
Certain information such as your name and e-mail address and other identifying information (collectively, “Personal Information”) is required in order to register a user account with respect to the Services, or to contact us through the contact form or e-mail (in which case we will retain our responses as well). We may also retain information from your profile as well as photos or other image files and associated metadata. If you subscribe to our e-mail mailing list, we will collect your name and e-mail address. This information will be used to operate, maintain, and provide you with the features and functionality of the Services. We may also use this information for direct communication with you. We may send you newsletters, promotions and special offers by e-mail. In case you do not want to receive such messages, you can unsubscribe from mailing list or change your preferences related to mailing. We may also use your information to send you Services-related emails (e.g., account verification, purchase and billing confirmations and reminders, changes/updates in the Services, and technical and security notices). You may not unsubscribe from Services-related e-mails.
Certain types of usage information are automatically collected when you visit the Site or use our Services.
Device identifiers. When you access the Site or the Services with a mobile device (including, but not limited to, smartphones and tablets) or a computer, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more device identifiers. Device identifiers are small data files associated with your electronic device, which uniquely identify such device and may be stored on it. A device identifier may contain data related to the device hardware, data related to the operating system or other software installed on the device, or data sent to the device by Readocity. A device identifier may send browsing information and information about your usage of the Services to us. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device in order to facilitate the log in process and make your navigation through the Services easier. Please be informed that some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is limited or disabled.
Analytical information. We may directly collect analytical data, or use third-party analytics tools to be provided with data regarding traffic and usage trends. Such tools gather information sent by your browser following a web page request. The information includes the web pages you visit, your browser add-ons, your browser window's width and height, and other data that assists us in improving the Services. We may collect and use this analytical information aggregately, and thus, identification of any particular individual user would not be possible.
Cookies information. When you use the Services, we or our third party partners may send one or more cookies to your computer. Cookies are small text files containing a string of characters that identify your browser and facilitate the log in process and make your browsing experience in the Services easier. A cookie may also send us information about your actions when using the Services (e.g., the pages you visit, the buttons or links you click and other actions). This allows us or our business partners to track how you use the Services over time. Our cookies do not collect personally identifiable information. You can set your web browser to refuse all cookies or to show an alert when a cookie is being sent. Please be informed that some features of the Services may not function properly if cookies are refused.
Location data. When you access the Services with a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store location data. Location data may give us browsing information and information relating to your usage of the Services. Please be aware that some features of the Services, especially services requiring location information, may not function properly if use or availability of location data is limited or disabled.
Log file information. Log file information is automatically sent by your browser when you visit a web page. When you access our Services, our servers record certain log file information. Such server logs include anonymous information, including, but not limited to, your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, type of your browser, referring pages and URLs, how many clicks you've made and information about your interaction with links on the Services, domain names, landing pages, and pages visited.

6. Links to Other Websites and Services
Readocity does not actively market to children and never knowingly asks a child under 13 to divulge Personal Information. While Readocity is engaged in the provision of services relating to children’s early learning, literacy and reading, the Site and the Services are not directed at or intended to be used by children under the age of 13, but rather the parents, legal guardians, teachers and other authorized adult representatives. In the event we learn that we have collected Personal Information from an individual under age 13 without verification of the appropriate adult permission, we will completely delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under age 13 without appropriate permission, please contact us immediately at
