Privacy Policy

Protecting children is the number one priority of The Math Gym. The Math Gym is a subsidiary of The Waid Group Inc., a privately held corporation located in Houston, Texas, USA.

What Data We Collect

The Math Gym asks only the minimum amount of information needed to make full use of use our system. At registration all users create a unique user name. This name is the name you and other players will see when you are competing and should never be your complete real name.

We also ask for date of birth, postal code, country of residence, parent/guardian's email address. A child may also be registered via a school or club account. To do this, their teacher/ club leader has to create a school/class account and a class password with which students can register. In this instance no emails are sent to the parent/guardian as the teacher/ club leader is acting in loco parentis (on behalf of the parent or guardian).

Usage Data

When a player uses The Math Gym, we collect information about game play, tutorials studied, quizzes taken, etc. This user data is retained for analytical purposes to improve the system and, in the future, to provide feedback to parents and teachers of their students progress. It is also aggregated anonymously for the purpose of identifying trend information about the math and literacy skills of The Math Gym users. This data is stored on a very secure Linux server and is not accessible by any party except The Math Gym.
