Worldly Languages Privacy Policy

Thanks for using Worldly Languages ("Worldly")! Here we describe how we collect, use, and handle your information when you use our website, software and services ("Services").

What and Why

We collect and use the following information to provide, improve and protect our Services:

Account. We collect, and associate with your account, information like your name, email address, and account activity.

Services. Our Services are designed to make it simple for students to collaborate and practice foreign languages with each other and for teachers to monitor and assess their students' progress. To make that possible, we store, process, and transmit your messages, posts, comments, and photos—as well as information related to it. This related information can be things like your profile information that makes it easier to collaborate with others.

Usage. We collect information related to how you use the Services, including actions you take in your account (like sharing, editing, viewing, and moving files or folders). This helps us provide you with features like activity feeds.

We also collect information from and about the devices you use to access the Services. This includes things like IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, and identifiers associated with your devices. Your devices (depending on their settings) may also transmit location information to the Services.

Cookies and other technologies. We use technologies like cookies and pixel tags to provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with our Services, and improving them based on that information. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services.

With whom

We may share information as discussed below, but we won't sell it to advertisers or other third parties.

Others working for Worldly. Worldly uses certain trusted third parties (for example, providers of customer support and IT services) to help us provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services. These third parties will access your information only to perform tasks on our behalf in compliance with this Privacy Policy, and we'll remain responsible for their handling of your information per our instructions.

Other users. Our Services display information like your name and profile picture to other users in places like your user profile.

Certain features let you make additional information available to others.

Teachers. If you are a student, your teachers have the ability to monitor and control your Worldly account. Please refer to your institution's internal policies if you have questions about this.

Law and Order. We may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with the law; (b) protect any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of Worldly or our users; or (d) protect Worldly's property rights.

How

Security. We are dedicated to keeping your information secure and testing for vulnerabilities. We also continue to work on new features to keep your information safe.

Retention. We'll retain information you store on our Services for as long as we need it to provide you the Services. If you delete your account, we'll also delete this information. But please note: (1) there might be some latency in deleting this information from our servers and back-up storage; and (2) we may retain this information if necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements. You can access your personal information by logging into your Worldly account.

Where

Around the world. To provide you with the Services, we may store, process and transmit information in the United States and locations around the world - including those outside your country. Information may also be stored locally on the devices you use to access the Services.

Changes

If we are involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that deal. We will notify you (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time, and will post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you.
