Your password should not contain personal information such as Your real name.

You have the right to cancel Your account at any time. Cancellation of Your account will automatically cancel any account that is associated with Your account. For example, the cancellation of a teacher’s account will cancel any student’s account associated with that teacher. When an account is canceled, the account is removed from the Site along with all associated accounts and books that have been created as part of those accounts.

II. Age of Users

Individuals under the age of 13 (“Minors”) are not allowed to create an account on the Site. Neither the Site nor Nationwide Learning LLC knowingly collects or solicits personal information from Minors or knowingly allows Minors to register for an online account or provide personal information on the Site. Should we learn that a Minor has created an account on the Site, that Minor’s account and any content they may have created will be removed.

For those teachers who decide to create an account for their student(s), please note that Nationwide Learning LLC will not ask Your student(s) to provide any personal information.

Although Nationwide Learning LLC does not promise to review the content of books authored by children containing personal information, such as a physical address, it reserves the right to remove any such information. In such an event, You agree that consistent with Nationwide Learning LLC Privacy Policy, Nationwide Learning LLC may collect any such information inadvertently submitted by Your student(s).

In certain cases, in Nationwide Learning, LLC’s sole discretion, Nationwide Learning LLC may provide written notice (a “Restriction Notice”) to a User (a “Restricted User”) to inform such Restricted User that (i) his or her right to use or access any part of the Site has been terminated including the right to use, access or create any account thereon; (ii) that Nationwide Learning LLC refuses to provide any services to such Restricted User; and (iii) any subsequent orders placed by a Restricted User will be subject to cancellation.

The notice must include the following information (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on this website are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Nationwide Learning LLC to locate the material on the Site; (d) the name, address, telephone number and e-mail address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If You believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits You to send Nationwide Learning LLC a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to this website should be sent to: Director of DMCA.

About our Website

 

Nationwide Learning, Inc.’s online publishing tool (the “Site”) allows You to create, illustrate, write and publish Your books in hardcover format.

This Privacy Policy describes the information that we collect from You and from any student that You decide to allow to use our Site. This Privacy Policy also describes how we use that information, and with whom that information is shared. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information that is not collected through our website, including any materials that are sent to us by you, or someone acting on Your behalf, in paper form.

This Privacy Policy refers to the terms “you,” “Your book,” and “Nationwide Learning, LLC.” As it’s important for You to understand what those terms mean, here are some definitions to keep in mind as You read this Privacy Policy:

“You” refers to a teacher over the age of 13 who establishes an account on the Site.

“Your book” refers to a book that You created. If you, as the teacher, decide to set up an account for Your student(s), the term “Your book” also refers to any books that are authored by Your student(s).

“Minor[s]” refers generally to a person who is under the age of 13 years old.

“Student’s Account” refers to an account that a teacher sets up for a student who is a Minor. A Minor cannot set up his or her own account, and any Student’s Account must be associated with an account created by the teacher.

“Your student” or “Students” refers to a Minor child (or Minor children) who You have chosen to associate with Your account.

Who May Create an account on the Site?

 

Any teacher who is at least 13 years old may register to create an account on the Site. Although we do not allow Minors to create their own account, if You are a teacher and have created an account with us, You may create an account for Your Minor student or Minor students. The Student’s Account that You create will be associated with Your account. In the event that You create a Student’s Account, both Your account, and Your Student’s Account, will be governed by this Privacy Policy and the Nationwide Learning LLC User Agreement.

What Type of Personally Identifiable Information Does Nationwide Learning LLC Collect?

 

Registration Information

Information Collected From You

During the registration process Nationwide Learning LLC collects no more personally identifiable information from You than is reasonably necessary for You to participate in our online activities. This includes, among other things, Your name, Your email address and Your job title. You will also be asked to create a password during the registration process. When creating a password, do not use any personally identifiable information. For example, You should not use Your initials, telephone number, email address, abbreviation of Your name or zip code.

If You decide to collaborate with others to write a book, Nationwide Learning LLC may collect personally identifiable information about You or about Your student(s) as part of the process of obtaining Your authorization to share Your book with others.

Although Nationwide Learning LLC does not request personally identifiable information from You other than during the registration process, the product-ordering process, the purpose of the Site is to allow the creation, illustration, and personalization of books. As a result, You control the information that You choose to include in the books You create. Although Nationwide Learning LLC warns Users not to include personally identifiable information in the books that they author, it is possible that You may inadvertently provide Nationwide Learning LLC with personally identifiable information in the content of the book that You author.

Information Collected From Minors

Nationwide Learning LLC does not ask Students to provide any personally identifiable information.

If You decide to create a Student’s Account, however, Nationwide Learning LLC will allow Your student to create personalized books. Although Nationwide Learning LLC warns all children not to include personally identifiable information in the books that they author, it is possible that they may inadvertently provide Nationwide Learning LLC with personally identifiable information in the content of the book that they author. By creating a Student’s Account, You agree that if Your student inadvertently provides personally identifiable information to Nationwide Learning, Inc., Nationwide Learning LLC may collect and maintain that information.

Credit Card Information

If You choose to avail of our services, you may need to give personal information and authorization to obtain information from various credit services. For example, you may need to provide the following information:

Additional Information That We Collect

We may collect information through technology to make our Site more interesting and useful to you. For example, we collect IP addresses and use technology to track traffic patterns on the Site. Once You have logged into the Site, we track Your activities by using logs of database transactions and server interactions. We also use this information to understand which areas of our Site are most appealing or least appealing. Our Site also uses “cookies,” which are pieces of text information that a website sends to Your computer while You are viewing the website. Cookies provide information to the Site so that the Site will remember who You are.

Co-Authors

In some situations You may want to co-author a book with another person, or allow Your student(s) to co-author a book with another person. If You decide to co-author a book, we may allow Your co-author to view the information that You write in the book. If the co-author is a Minor student, we may also allow the parent, or legal guardian of the co-author to view the information that You write in the book.

Sales, Mergers and Acquisitions

In the event that all or substantially all of the assets related to Nationwide Learning LLC are transferred or sold to another entity, all information, including personally identifiable information we have in our possession, would be transferred to that entity.

Law Enforcement Officials

Nationwide Learning LLC fully cooperates with reasonable requests for information from law enforcement agencies. As a result, we reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful, or that we reasonably believe may aid a law enforcement investigation.

Responding to Other Requests for Information

Nationwide Learning LLC may share Your information with others as required by, or permitted by law. This may include sharing Your personally identifiable information with governmental entities, or third parties, in response to subpoenas, court orders, other legal process, or as we believe is necessary to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims against us, our employees, our customers, Users, or others.

How Do We Secure Your Personal Information?

 

We take significant and appropriate security measures, including physical, technological and procedural measures, to help to safeguard Your personal information and to prevent unauthorized access and disclosure.

We want You to feel confident whenever You visit our Site. While we are focused on the security of Your personal information and follow strict standards, processes and procedures that are designed to protect Your personal information, we cannot promise, and You should not expect, that Your personal information will remain secure in all circumstances.

Will This Privacy Policy Change?

 

We reserve the right to modify or amend this Privacy Policy at any time, and without your prior consent, by posting the revised privacy policy on our Site. Any material changes in how we use or share personally identifiable information will only affect the information that we collect after the effective date of the change to our privacy policy unless we clearly express otherwise.

Is My Student’s Ability to Use the Site Conditioned Upon Him or Her Providing Personal Information?

 

No. Nationwide Learning LLC does not ask Minors to provide any personally identifiable information. As a result, if You have created a Student’s Account that allows Your student to participate on our Site, we do not condition Your student’s use of that account on his or her providing any personally identifiable information.

Yes. You can only use the Site by creating an account. However, when participating in the School-wide Program, Nationwide-Learning Inc. will create the account for the Program Coordinator.
