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!

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.

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.
