Privacy Policy
Last updated: 1 July 2019

By using the website located at quizademia.com (“the Site”) you agree to the collection and use of your personal information as described in this policy.

Two Types of User

There are two types of Quizademia user. Users who make quizzes ("Quizmakers") and users who take quizzes ("Quiz Participants").

The information we collect about each type of user is different. Please note that if a Quizmaker takes a quiz, they also become a Quiz Participant in relation to this policy.

Information Collected on Quizmakers

We collect the following personal information from Quizmakers:

  • Name
  • Username (if provided)
  • Email address
  • Profile Picture (if provided)
  • Password (stored as a salted hash)
  • All data you enter for the quizzes that you make.
  • Any other information that you voluntarily provide to us.

Information Collected on Quiz Participants

We collect the following personal information from Quiz Participants who take a quiz without creating a Quiz Participant account:

  • Nickname
  • Quiz answers, results and time taken.

In addition we collect the following information from quiz participants for whom a participant account is created:

  • Name
  • Username (if provided)
  • Email address (if provided)
  • Password (stored as a salted hash)

How we Use Personal Information

We use your personal information to enable the functionality of the site and to provide customer support.

If you are a Quiz Participant your personal information will be visible to the Quizmaker who administers your account. The responses you provide when taking quizzes will also be visible to the Quizmaker who assigned you the quiz.

If you create a Quizmaker or Quiz Participant account we may send you notices related to your account or about changes to our services. We will not send you promotional mailings unless you specifically opt-in to receiving news and offers from us. You may opt-out of promotional mailings at any time.

Children as Quiz Participants

In accordance with our Terms of Use, persons under 18 years of age are not permitted to create Teacher/Quizmaker accounts.

If you (as a Quizmaker) choose to assign a quiz to a child (as defined in your jurisdiction), you must comply with any relevant local laws. For example, in the United States of America, teachers and schools are required to get parental consent before setting up student accounts for students under the age of 13. In some cases a teacher may act as a parent's agent and provide consent on their behalf.

Social Login Providers

You may choose to sign up or log in to Quizademia using your Google or Facebook account. If you choose to do this, Google or Facebook will provide us with information about you such as your name, email address, and profile picture. We will store this information and associate it with your Quizademia account.

Avatars (Profile Pictures)

We may use a service called Gravatar to provide avatar images for this site. In order to generate these avatars we send an encrypted version of your e-mail address (called a 'hash') to Gravatar's servers. Gravatar cannot use this hash to send you unsolicited e-mail. If you decide to customise your avatar you will need to sign up for a Gravatar/Wordpress.com account. Any resulting privacy implications for this action will be an issue between you and the owners of Gravatar.

Content You Make

If you create quizzes using the Site, the content you enter will be stored by Quickworksheets. The content you enter will be made available to other users who know the quiz link for your quiz. Although unlikely, it is theoretically possible for someone to guess the link for your quiz and therefore be able to view and use it.

If you choose to share a quiz using the "Share" feature of the Site, it will be made public to other users of the Site in perpetuity.

Closing Your Account

You may close your account at any time by contacting us and requesting that we close your account. Once we have closed your account you will no longer receive communication from us. Any of Your Content that you have expressly chosen to share with other Quizademia users will remain available to them and will not be deleted. Residual copies of your information may remain on our servers and in our backup system.

Visitor Analytics

As you use the Site we collect information that your browser sends us. This information includes your Internet Protocol address. We use this information for internal business purposes, site features, and to prevent abuse of the Site's resources. To facilitate various site features and analyse site usage we, or third parties, may store cookies on your computer.

Like millions of other websites we use Google Analytics to track who visits the Site and how they use it. This helps us better understand who visits the site, what technologies (such as browsers and devices) they use, and what content they view. Google may also use this information and link it with information that Google holds about visits to other websites.

reCAPTCHA

Quizademia uses Google's reCAPTCHA v3 to help prevent bots and automated scripts from using the Site and submitting data. Your use of Quizademia is therefore subject to the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

Location of Data

Any information we collect may be transferred to and stored on computer servers in any country where we have storage facilities. This is primarily the United States of America and Australia, but due to the global nature of the internet data will pass through, and may be stored in, other countries as well. By using the Site you consent to any such transfer and storage of your information.
