Privacy Policy
Garage Door Media, LLC
Last updated: February 25, 2013

Garage Door Media, LLC (“Garage Door Media”) has a vision to help gamify education through the gamification of learning – making learning as exciting as playing!   Users who choose to play any Garage Door Media games are not just users, but players – and just game players but life players, and to learn how to be the best player at life that our users were meant to be, then together we become life-long learners – students of life!  For this reason ~ whether 7-years-old, seventeen years old or one hundred and seventeen years old ~ our users are not simply users – but students! 
Garage Door Media respects the privacy of our students and has developed this Privacy Policy to demonstrate its commitment to protecting your privacy. These privacy policies (the "Privacy Policy") are intended to describe for you, as an individual who is a student of www.GarageDoorMedia.com or our services, the information we collect, how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and your choices about such uses and disclosures.

Any third parties to whom we may disclose personal information may have their own privacy policies which describe how they use and disclose personal information. Those policies will govern use, handling and disclosure of your personal information once we have shared it with those third parties as described in this Privacy Policy. If you want to learn more about their privacy practices, we encourage you to visit the websites of those third parties. These entities or their servers may be located either inside or outside the United States.

We may also share it with third parties and our IAC sister companies to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our websites and on websites of third parties. We may combine non-personal information we collect with additional non-personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to our website and the most popular features or services accessed. This information does not contain any personal information and may be used to develop website content and services that we hope you and other students will find of interest and to target content and advertising.
Third-Party Websites: There are a number of places on our website or through our services where you may click on a link to access other websites that do not operate under this Privacy Policy. For example, if you click on an advertisement or a search result on our website, you may be taken to a website that we do not control.

In addition, if certain information has already been provided to third parties as described in this Privacy Policy, retention of that information will be subject to those third parties’ policies.
Your Choices About Collection and Use of Your Information

How We Protect Your Personal Information: We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption in the transmission of your sensitive personal information between your system and ours, and we use firewalls to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your personal information.
We want you to feel confident using our learning apps and our website. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure. Students should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/menus/consumer/data.shtm for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.

If you are visiting our website from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. Please be assured that we seek to take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected. By using our services, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this privacy policy.
No Rights of Third Parties: This Privacy Policy does not create rights enforceable by third parties or require disclosure of any personal information relating to students of the website.

Garage Door Media uses cookies on all learning apps associated with GarageDoorMedia.com and related domains and applications (the “Garage Door Media Learning App or Service”). By using the Garage Door Media Learning Tools, you consent to the use of cookies.  This Cookie Policy is part of our Privacy Policy above, and explains the following things:

1. What is a cookie?  A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your web browser that allows Garage Door Media or a third party to recognize you. Cookies might be used for the following purposes: (1) to enable certain functions; (2) to provide analytics; (3) to store your preferences; and (4) to enable ad delivery and behavioral advertising.  Cookies can either be session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires or you delete your cookies. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves; some may expire after a few minutes while others may expire after multiple years. Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are sometimes called “first party cookies,” while cookies placed by other companies are sometimes called “third party cookies.”
2. What cookies are used when I use the Garage Door Media Learning App or Service?  When you use the Garage Door Media Learning App or Service or visit a webpage with a Garage Door Media game, Garage Door Media or a third party may place a number of cookies in your browser. Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies will always be used. You can find out more about each cookie by viewing our current cookie list. We update this list quarterly, so there may be additional cookies that aren’t yet listed.

2. Analytics cookies

These cookies track information about how the Garage Door Media Learning App or Service is being used so that we can make improvements and report our performance. We might also use analytics cookies to test new ads, pages, or features to see how users react to them. Analytics cookies may either be first party cookies or third party cookies.

These third party cookies are placed by advertising platforms or networks in order to:

3. How do third parties use cookies on the Garage Door Media Learning App or Service?  Third party companies like analytics companies and ad networks generally use cookies to collect user information on an anonymous basis. They may use that information to build a profile of your activities on the Garage Door Media Learning App or Service and other websites that you’ve visited.
4.

5. Do you use any other user tracking technologies?  We use additional technologies to help track user activities and preferences. For example, we use web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or web bugs).

They are used to track user activities and communicate with cookies. You cannot opt out of web beacons used in webpages, but you can limit their use by opting out of the cookies they interact with.
