Privacy Policy

Abacus Brain Gym, LLC

Last Updated: February 22nd, 2024


Welcome to Learn Abacus Online’s Privacy Policy. Learn Abacus Online is a service (the “Service”) developed by Abacus Brain Gym, LLC, a Texas corporation (the “Company”), for teaching and learning abacus math. The application supplies users with a platform for consuming educational content, practicing abacus math, and for supporting interaction between students, teachers, and administrators in an education setting. This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with data we collect through applications and websites operated by us (collectively, the “Site”). 

Learn Abacus Online respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal information. This privacy policy will inform you as to how we look after your personal information when you use our services and tell you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you. 

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time. We will notify you of any material changes by contacting you at the email address you have provided us and by posting the new Privacy Policy on the Site. You are advised to consult this policy regularly for any changes. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Service. As used in this  policy, the terms "using" and "processing" information include using cookies on a  computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or  handling information in any way, including, but not limited to, collecting, storing,  evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring  information within our organization or among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.


We comply with The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its rules require us to inform parents and legal guardians (“Parents”) about our practices for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information from  children under the age of 13 (“Children”). It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child's Parent, or to confirm that the child’s teacher has obtained  verifiable consent from such child’s Parent, for certain collection, use, and disclosure of the child's personal information. 

Read more about COPPA at the FTC's COPPA page. This regulation is designed to  protect the privacy of your children. In order for a child under the age of 13 to use Learn Abacus Online’s services, their parent/guardian must approve the registration.


The information we learn from teachers and from children (as students) helps us not only provide the Service but also to personalize and continually improve each user’s experience with the Service. Certain tailored content and features are available only to registered users, and require us to collect certain information, including personal information, from them so we can determine what tailored content and features to make available to them. In addition, we use certain technologies, such as cookies, to automatically collect information from our users (including children) when they visit or use the Site. 

We only collect as much information about a child as is reasonably necessary for the child to participate in an activity, and we do not condition his or her participation on the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary.  

Here are the types of information we gather: 

a. Information You Give Us Directly 

Teacher Information: When you create an account as a teacher with Learn Abacus Online, we ask you for personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, and password, which we will use to contact or identify you (your “Teacher Profile Information”).

Student Information, Including Information we Collect from Children under 13: Students, including children, must provide us with a first name, last name, date of birth, username, and password to create and verify an account. Students may provide this information to us directly or their parent/guardian may provide it to us where appropriate. Student profile information will be available to the teacher/admin who is associated with the student. A student’s name and username may become available to the other students in any class the student has joined, and may also be available to other teachers or administrators with registered accounts. A student's name will also be publicly displayed on our website's "Hall of Fame" leaderboard by default, however, all users have the option to display their username instead of their real name on this leaderboard page. You can find this option to display username in place of real name in your user's account settings page under the profile section.

b. Automatic Information Collected 

Like many other websites, we also collect information through cookies and other automated means. Information of this sort includes: 

Technical information about a user’s browser and mobile device: This information is used in the aggregate to help us optimize the Service for common browsers and devices. 

Usage information, such as the Content and features that users interact with: We collect and use this behavioral information and may use it in anonymized and aggregate forms to generate statistics about users and how the Services are being used but the information is not shared in any form that could be used to identify users personally. Please see “How we use and share the information we collect,” below, for further information and choices about sharing information with third parties. 

IP address and log file information, web beacons, cookies, tokens and device identifiers: These are alphanumeric identifiers that help us to distinguish between unique browsers and devices in order to avoid showing users the same information twice, keep users logged into Learn Abacus Online, and prevent duplicate actions and improve your experience. The information we collect from cookies may include IP address, browser, and device characteristics, referring URLs, and a record of interactions with our Service. By using the Service, you are consenting to such use of cookies. Most Web browsers can be set to inform users when a cookie has been placed and provide users with the opportunity to refuse that cookie. We will respect your choices relating to on-line tracking, whether you choose to reject individual cookies or set your web browser to reject cookies and other tracking technology. However, refusing a cookie may, in some cases, preclude you from using, or negatively impact the display or function of, the Service or certain areas or features of the Service. 

Crashes and error reports: If you encounter a crash or error while using our Service,  we may generate a crash report that includes technical usage and, if you are logged in, your account information so that we can diagnose and potentially prevent the problem in the future. 

c. Lawful Basis to Information Processing 

We process your personal data only when we have a lawful basis. Presently, we have a legitimate interest and, in some cases, your consent as the lawful basis for processing. Our legitimate interest is to deliver the Service to you. We have determined that our processing of your personal data is necessary to deliver the Service to you, and that there is no less intrusive means of delivering you the Service. Finally, we believe that our processing of personal data will not cause unjustified harm in a way that would override our legitimate interest basis. In some cases, we may use consent as our lawful basis for collecting and processing certain types of  personal information. In such cases, you have a right to withdraw the consent at any time. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person. 


We use the information we collect for things like: 

• Establishing and managing a user’s account and providing the Service.

• Conducting research and analysis, such as estimating our audience size and usage patterns.

• Storing information about each user’s preferences, allowing us to customize the content according to individual interest where appropriate.

• Identifying users on the Service and communicating things like surveys and offers that may be of interest.

• Operating, evaluating, and improving our business.

We will not share, sell, rent, or transfer any user’s personal or account information with third parties other than as described here.  

We do not allow advertising companies to collect data through our service for ad targeting, nor do we collect, use, or sell your information on behalf of or for advertising companies. 

We may disclose aggregated usage and demographic information collected from our users but not in a way that can identify a user individually.  

We may disclose personal information: 

• To third parties we use to support the internal operations of our Service and who are bound by contractual or other obligations to use the information only for such purposes and to keep the information confidential. 

• If we are required to do so by law or legal process, such as to comply with a regulation, court order or subpoena.

• If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of or prevent harm or loss to Learn Abacus Online, our customers, or others, including to protect the safety of a child, to protect the safety or security of the Service, to enable us to take precautions against liability, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual unlawful activity.  

We may also share your personal information in the event of a corporate sale, merger,  acquisition, dissolution, or similar event.


Learn Abacus Online uses reasonable security measures to store and protect the information  under our control and appropriately limit access to it. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. 

We want you to feel confident using the Services. 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 personally identifiable information, usage data, or other communications will always remain secure. We will notify you by email if we have reason to believe that your personal information has been compromised due to a security breach or used in an unauthorized manner, but by using this Service, in accordance with the Terms of Service you agree to release us from any and all claims arising out of unauthorized use of your information.  


‍You may choose to: 

• View, update, and correct your account and personal information.

• Stop receiving marketing or promotional e-mails, direct mail, or other marketing communications.

• Delete your account, and in doing so, remove your child’s personal information from our Service entirely.

Data Retention 

We will only retain a user’s profile information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. In some circumstances we will anonymize your personal information (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. Outside of these situations, if you terminate your account, we will delete your account, including your first name, last name, date of birth, username, and password, within thirty (30) days of receiving your termination request. 

We will make reasonable efforts to enable you to delete your Content and profile information from our database upon request, which may be done on your account settings page via the data section.


Using the Services from outside the United States 

This Privacy Policy is intended to cover collection of information from residents of the United States. If you are accessing the Service from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States. 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 the Service, 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. 

Third Party Websites and Operators That Collect or Maintain Information from Children 

Our website may contain links to other websites, many of which have their own privacy policies. Be sure to review the privacy policy on the site you're visiting.  

Additionally, we may integrate third party services into our Service in order to personalize your experience. This policy only covers the use of cookies by Learn Abacus Online. Cookies placed by third party services are governed by the third-party terms and privacy policies applicable to those services (which we encourage you to read).
