Effective as of September 1, 2014


Please note that this Site and App (the "Site and App") and Chrome© extension (the ‘App’) are in Beta and may contain errors, bugs, or other problems not usually associated with generally available Site and Apps and services.

As with any webSite and App providing tools and information, there are rules about what you can and can't do, what we will and won't do, and what promises we do and don't make to you. Those are captured below in our Terms of Service. Please read them carefully because we want to be sure you understand and accept them before you use or App or register for this Site and App.

The following terms constitute an agreement between you and Gradelicious, the operator of the Site and App ("we" or "us"). This agreement ("Terms of Service") governs your use of the Site and App, both as a casual visitor and as a registered user.

You may not use any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means to access the Site and App and App or Services for any purpose without our express written permission.

8. Links to Other Site and Apps

The Site and App may include links to other websites, including links provided as automated search results. Some of these sites may contain materials that are objectionable, unlawful, or inaccurate.

9. Additional Terms

Certain Services or features on the Site and App may have additional terms (such as policies, guidelines, and subscription terms) that will further govern your use of the particular Service and supplement these Terms of Service.

11. Content You Post or Submit

The Site and App includes community areas, such as forums where registered users can post messages, information, and other content ("Postings") that can be accessed and viewed by others, including the public in general. When you submit Postings keep in mind that they are not confidential. Please be thoughtful with your Postings, and avoid offending others or infringing their rights. You may only post Postings to public areas on the Site and App that you created or that you have permission to post. You may not post Postings that violate these Terms of Service or our Posting Guidelines, and we reserve the right to block your ability to post and/or to access the Site and App and Services if you do.

It is important that you act responsibly when providing these ratings. Please give clear, honest information but do not use inappropriate language or make gratuitous personal criticisms or comments.

You (or the author) continue to own the copyright in your Postings but, by submitting Postings to public areas of the Site and App, you grant us and our affiliates the right to use, copy, display, perform, distribute, adapt, translate, edit, and promote your Postings in any medium, and to use your display name to attribute your postings to you if we so choose.

While some community areas may be monitored for topicality, we have no obligation to pre-screen Postings, and are not responsible for their content. We encourage you to notify us of inappropriate or illegal content in community areas, and we reserve the right to remove Postings for any reason. We are not, however, responsible for any failure or delay in removing Postings. Keep in mind that the Postings of others are simply their opinions and you should not rely on them.

In the event that we are legally compelled to disclose your personal information to a third party, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you unless doing so would violate the law or court order.

Agents and contractors

Contractors sometimes have access to your personal information in the course of assisting in operating our business and providing products or services to you. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content for the operation and maintenance of our site.

We provide secure sign-on to our site.

What you can do to help keep your information secure?


Choose your passwords carefully

Always create a password that's easy for you to remember but difficult for someone else to figure out. Don't use your name, address, phone number, initials, Social Security number, license plate or birthday. Don't use names of your friends, family, or pets, company names, common numerical sequences or the word password.

Suggestion: Use a mix of special characters, numbers, and upper- and lowercase letters. Also, remember to change your password frequently and never give your password to anyone.

Log out and close your browser

Open browsers invite snoops. When you finish your online session, close your browser to erase any information it may have temporarily stored on your computer.

Install antivirus software and spyware protection

Viruses are dangerous. Many viruses are sent as email attachments. They can slip into your system without your knowledge the moment you open the email. Some viruses such as Trojan Horses can capture the contents of your system, including your passwords. Installing up-to-date antivirus software and running it will help thwart these and other unwanted programs.

Spyware is a program or technology that aids in gathering information about a person or organization, often without their knowledge, and includes programs like hijackers and keyloggers. The best way to identify whether or not spyware is installed on your computer is to run and regularly update anti-spyware programs. Similar to antivirus software, antispyware software identifies and helps you remove spyware

Protection of Children's contact information


Gradelicious encourages teachers, parents and guardians to spend time online with their students and/or children. We urge teachers/parents to instruct their students/children to never give out their real names, addresses, or phone numbers without permission when using the Internet. We recognize the obligation to protect personal information obtained from children. In an effort to be in compliance with COPPA (the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act), along with our pledge to support SIIA we have adopted the following policies to keep kids safe, there are a few exceptions to these policies as noted below. We have adopted the following policies to keep kids safe:

  • We will NOT knowingly collect, use, or distribute personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable consent from a teacher, parent or guardian.
  • Personally identifiable information we collect from children under the age of 13 will be used solely by Gradelicious or its agents for internal purposes only and will NOT be sold or otherwise distributed to third parties.
  • We will NOT knowingly allow children under the age of 13 access to chat rooms, message boards, email accounts, or other services within Gradelicious that would allow them to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information without prior verifiable consent from a parent or guardian.
  • We will NOT knowingly ask a child under the age of 13 to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any activity, game, or service.
  • We will NOT knowingly keep any personally identifiable information that is inadvertently included in a child's email submission, help inquiry, or other one-time request, if we know that the child is under the age of 13. Information will be automatically purged or purged immediately after the issue has been resolved.
  • We will NOT knowingly post any personally identifiable information that is inadvertently included in a child's submission to a general audience contribution area if we know that the child is under the age of 13. These submissions will be deleted and handled anonymously thereafter.
  • We will NOT knowingly provide any direct link to websites that are unsuitable for children or teens.
  • We will advise children under the age of 13 that they MUST obtain permission from their parent or guardian before sharing ANY personal information.
  • Upon request, Gradelicious will provide a parent with a description of the information that may have been provided about their child during a registration process for a program or service of this site. Gradelicious only asks for a child's or teen's personal information if it is necessary to participate in the program or service.

If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, please contact us immediately at support@gradelicious.com

Notification and Verifiable Parental Consent

Before any personally identifiable information is collected, we will do our best to notify the parent or guardian that their child is participating. Notification will include the exact nature and intended use of the information we are collecting, as well as the opportunity for the parent or guardian to prevent the use of the information and the child's participation in the activity. For every child (anyone under 13 years of age) we require the parent or guardian to provide verifiable parental consent such as an email, mail-in letter, fax, or toll-free phone call to Gradelicious.

Exceptions to Verifiable Parental Consent

There are few instances where we will NOT get verifiable parental consent, such as:

  • If a teacher registers any student / child without needing that student or child's contact info then it is up to the teacher to monitor the content of that page and abide by the "Terms of Use". See "Visitor's Risk" section of Terms.
  • Requesting the contact information of a parent or guardian for the sole purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notification to the parent or guardian;
