We made LearnToMod so people like you could create mods, share your creations, and build a community. To make this happen, we collect some information from our users. The LearnToMod Team understands how important privacy is to our community, especially kids and parents. We wrote this privacy policy to explain what information we collect, how we use it, and what we’re doing to keep it safe. If you have any questions regarding this privacy policy, you can contact us by e-mail at learntomod@thoughtstem.com.

Please DO NOT share personal contact information, such as your name, physical address, email address, phone number, or anything else that can be used to make contact outside of the LearnToMod website. Please report content, comments, or forum posts that contain this kind of information so the LearnToMod team can remove it, and please remind the author of our Privacy Policy.

 

What information does the LearnToMod Team collect about me?

Account Information: In order to build mods or comment on other users’ mods, you need to make an account. During account creation, we ask you for a LearnToMod nickname and your email address (or your parent or guardian’s email address if you are under 13 years old). We ask that you select a nickname that does not disclose your real name or other information that could identify you. Other users can see your LearnToMod nickname, but not your email address.

User-generated Content: All of your LearnToMod creations, comments, and forum posts are stored on the LearnToMod servers. Other users can see your shared creations (including mods, worlds, schematics, and texture packs), comments, and forum posts, along with your LearnToMod nickname. Because the LearnToMod Team is responsible for moderation, we have access to all content stored on the LearnToMod website, including unshared creations.

Usage Information: When you use LearnToMod, our servers will automatically store a limited amount of information about how you use the website. This information includes a number that identifies your computer (the IP address), which pages you visited, which badges you’ve completed, and what browser you are using. In order to connect your LearnToMod account to your LearnToMod private Minecraft server, we also collect your Minecraft username. Other LearnToMod users are not able to see any of this usage information.

Google Analytics: We also collect some data on where you click and which parts of the site you visit using Google Analytics. This “click data” helps us figure out ways to improve the website. Information collected and processed by Google Analytics includes the user’s IP address, network location, and geographic location. Google Analytics acquires all its information directly from the user, by installing a cookie (see below) on your computer, if you have enabled JavaScript. LearnToMod does not share any information it collects with Google, and Google does not collect any personal identifying information about you.

Cookies: When you log in, the LearnToMod website asks your browser to put an http “cookie” on your computer. The cookie is actually a small text file that our site can send to your browser for storage on your computer. This allows the website to remember that you are logged in when you go to a different page.

 

How does the LearnToMod Team use my information?

    • We will use your email address to respond to messages you send us or to communicate with you about the LearnToMod service or your account.
    • We send out occasional email updates about LearnToMod to the confirmed email address on your account. LearnToMod will never sell or share your email address without your permission. You can unsubscribe from these updates by clicking the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of the email.
    • If we detect repeated abusive behavior from your account, IP address, or email address, we may share your account name, IP address, and the time and content of the abusive behavior with the IP address owner (such as a school or internet service provided).
    • We may use de-identified location, age, gender, and usage data in research studies intended to improve our understanding of how people learn with LearnToMod. The results of this research are shared publicly with educators and researchers through conferences, journals, and other publications.
    • We may disclose some of the information we collect to third-party service providers that help us manage communications to and from the LearnToMod website and improve website performance. We are satisfied that these service providers have privacy policies that restrict them from further disclosing any of your information.
    • Other than as described above, we will never share personally identifiable information about you with any other person, company, or organization, except:
      • As required to comply with our obligations under the law.
      • For technical reasons, if we are required to transfer the data on our servers to another location or organization.

 

How can I update my personal information?

You can update your email address, Minecraft username, and LearnToMod nickname through the Account tab on the mod.learntomod.com homepage. You can reset your password when logging in by selecting the “Can’t Access Your Account?” option.

If you want to delete your account entirely, e-mail us at learntomod@thoughtstem.com.

 

How does the LearnToMod Team protect my information?

The LearnToMod Team has in place physical and electronic procedures to protect the information we collect on the LearnToMod website. We strictly limit individual access to the LearnToMod servers and the data we store on them. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot completely guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.

 

Notifications of Changes to the Privacy Policy

We review our security measures and Privacy Policy on a periodic basis, and we may modify our policies as appropriate. We may also change or update our Privacy Policy if we add new services or features. If we make any changes to our privacy practices, we will amend this Privacy Policy accordingly and post the amended policy on the Scratch website. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis.
