- Second, we may email to you special advertisements, offers, and notices. You may choose to opt-out of receiving these special advertisements, offers, and notices.
- Third, we use the information you provide to facilitate product and content development, improve our services, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients
- Fourth, we do aggregate information about how our service is used to be able to improve our service and make it more responsive to our users’ preferences.
Software Demo Download and Email List
DimensionU also collects personal information when a user requests to download our demo software or requests to be added to our email list. The personal information we will collect for these services includes your name, email address, and online contact information. When the user requests the download of the demo we will use the personal information collected from the request to provide the user the download and communicate with the user through email regarding products and services offered by DimensionU. When the user requests to be added to the email list we will use the information collected to communicate with the user through email regarding products and services offered by DimensionU.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We may share your personal information collected on this website with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If we do so we will provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of this sharing of your personal information. In addition, we may provide access to your personal information to trusted businesses or persons for the purpose of processing personal information on our behalf in connection with the services and products we offer. From time to time, we may offer services that allow you to log in to our website(s) by using third-party log in mechanisms. In these instances, you will remain bound and obligated to follow the terms, conditions, rules, and regulations of those third party service providers. DimensionU may share aggregate information about our customers with third parties. This aggregate information will not be tied to a user’s personal information. Except as noted above, DimensionU does not share personal information about site users with third parties unless doing so is appropriate to carry out a user’s request or it reasonably believes that doing so is legally required or is in DimensionU’s interest to protect its property or other legal rights or the rights or property of others.
If you have any questions or problems concerning the opt-out procedure, please email us at email@example.com.
At DimensionU, we believe in helping parents make informed choices about the information that their child may disclose on our website. To that end, we encourage parents to supervise their child’s online activities as diligently as they do their everyday, offline activities.
DimensionU takes steps to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. As such, we will not collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without prior parental consent. In addition, we will only collect the information from a child that is reasonably needed in order to allow the child to participate in an activity on our site.
The personally identifiable information that we may collect from children under the age of 13 includes: email address, city, school name and grade. This information is collected in order to ensure that users participate in the DimensionU games designed for their age and grade level, and access to new features and where applicable to allow them to join their school’s DimensionU program setup.
We may also collect other, non-personally identifiable information from a child such as a user name, password and gender.
We take steps in order to protect the security of the information of children under the age of 13, including the encryption of data via industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) as well as secure data storage with redundant backups of all data over multiple locations to prevent the remote possibility of data loss. Industry standard security measures are all in place at all locations to protect our users’ privacy. We don’t disclose any personally identifiable information we collect from children to third parties except as required in order to provide for routine technical site support or for fulfillment of promotions as described below.
At DimensionU, parents always have the ability to review the information we have collected from their child, to ask to have it deleted and to refuse to allow any further collection or use of their child’s information. This may be done by writing to us at the contact information provided below.
Information Collected from Children in Contests, Sweepstakes, Rewards, and Gift Redemption Programs
DimensionU may offer contests, sweepstakes, rewards, and gift redemption program on our site. These programs are designed in such a manner that any child under 13 is not asked to provide any personally identifiable information without prior parental consent. We do not condition a child’s participation in any activity on the child’s disclosing more information than is reasonably necessary to engage in the activity.
Participation allows children to enter these contests and sweepstakes and join rewards and gift redemption programs. If the child is a potential winner of a prize in the sweepstakes or contest or the recipient of a reward that has real-world monetary value, we will email the parent (and not the child) and ask the parent to provide the information necessary to award the prize or reward, such as the child’s or parent’s name, address, phone number and other information.
If the child has qualified to take part in a gift redemption program, including, but not limited to, the Educational Allowance Program, redeemed items will be sent to the child at either the email address provided by the child (and consented to by the parent), or the physical mailing address provided by the parent, or both.
The parent’s email address and the information collected from the parents of winners may be passed on to a third party fulfillment company for the purpose of awarding prizes and rewards. These third parties are prohibited from using the information for purposes other than awarding the prize.
No information is collected under this section without a parent’s prior verified consent.

PCI DSS is an information security standard for organizations that handle cardholder information for the major debit, credit, prepaid, e-purse, ATM, and POS cards. The standard was created to increase controls around cardholder data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure. DimensionU will use commercially reasonable efforts at all times to implement the standards articulated by PCI DSS, and will notify its customers in the event of a security breach, if notification is requested by emailing us at email@example.com.

Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank or credit card company cannot hold you liable for more than $50 of unauthorized or fraudulent charges on a credit card.
