Makers Empire Software
The Makers Empire 3D app is accessed by students using accounts with unique usernames. These usernames can be chosen by the school and designed to not identify the child. Teachers have the ability to associate usernames with students names, but are able to make these general (e.g. “Mark H”).
Email addresses can be added to accounts but are not necessary. Teachers can use their own email address for all students in their class.
Schools can choose privacy settings – student designs can be shared:
- only within a school;
- only with other schools
Any shared designs will also include the username of the designer.
We respect the privacy of children, and do not collect any more personal information than reasonably necessary to enable them to use Makers Empire.
It is possible to use Makers Empire 3D app without entering any personally identifiable information.
We do not have any agreements with outside organizations to collect personal information on our website or 3D app.
We do not share children’s (or adult’s) personal information with any third party.
As a parent, you have the legal right to review and secure correction of personal information that we have obtained from your child under the age of 13. You also have the right to withdraw or limit your previous consent to our collection and use of the personal information of your child under the age of 13.
In order to exercise these rights, parents should contact us by email at: email@example.com; by telephone at (415) 652 0206 or +61 8 7099 4030 outside of the USA; or by mail at the address above. We will not release any personal information of children under the age of 13 to persons claiming to be those children’s parents without verification that the child’s parent is requesting the information.
If we make any material change to this notice or the informational practices with regard to children that were in effect when your consent to the collection of your child’s personal information was obtained, we will, as required by law, send you a new notice and request your consent.
