Collection Of Personal Information

We collect this information in order to best respond to you and any issues you may encounter. If you choose not to share this information with us, it may not be possible for us to respond to your request.

Each of our products or applications collects different information, as outlined below:
Math Nation/Algebra Nation: Algebra Nation is a dynamic online and printed workbook resource that helps students master Algebra 1 or serves as on on-ramp tool to Algebra. Students can get personalized, real-time feedback from teachers, tutors, and peers on the Algebra Wall, which empowers them to learn collaboratively inside and outside of school. Math Nation provides the same services but to a broader math audience, including Geometry and Algebra 2. For middle school or high school students whose district or school is using the free Clever service (in use by more than 60% of schools in the country) we collect students’ full name, high school name, and teacher name — and that’s it. If the district or school is using Clever, we only have access to the data which is shared with us by the district or school. So the data shared is 100% up to the district or school, and varies. All of this information is stored in secure servers in a manner that is fully compliant with the The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). For high school students who sign up on their own, independently of their school, we collect their full name and their email address.
