Privacy Policy


Your privacy is critically important to us. At ClassJourney, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)

  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy, which incorporates these goals. (Note: this privacy policy is available under a Creative Commons ShareAlike license, and we’ve edited the initial version supplied by to meet our needs.)

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, ClassJourney collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. ClassJourney’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ClassJourney’s visitors use its website. From time to time, ClassJourney may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

ClassJourney also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. ClassJourney only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to ClassJourney choose to interact with ClassJourney in ways that require ClassJourney to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ClassJourney gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask teachers who create and facilitate games to provide a username and email address. In each case, ClassJourney collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ClassJourney. ClassJourney does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

ClassJourney may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, ClassJourney may monitor the most popular games or questions used. ClassJourney may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, ClassJourney does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

ClassJourney discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on ClassJourney’s behalf or to provide services available at ClassJourney’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using ClassJourney’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. ClassJourney will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, ClassJourney discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when ClassJourney believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ClassJourney, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of ClassJourney and have supplied your email address, ClassJourney may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with ClassJourney and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. ClassJourney takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. ClassJourney uses cookies to help ClassJourney identify and track visitors, their usage of ClassJourney website, and their website access preferences. ClassJourney visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using ClassJourney’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of ClassJourney’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If ClassJourney, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that ClassJourney goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of ClassJourney may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, ClassJourney may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in ClassJourney’s sole discretion. ClassJourney encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
