Information we collect

Information You Provide to Us

Email Address and Account Information

When you create an account on our site, you will be asked for your name and email address.

We will use your email address to send you transactional and membership emails as needed.

We do not and will not sell or share your name and email address information with other parties, and we do not send any emails to you other than transactional emails as required, such as password resets.

We will use a one-way hash of your email address to retrieve an avatar from, a use subject to their privacy policy. This process does not make your email address available to Gravatar.

Communications with Us

If you contact us by email or by using the Contact Us page on our site, we may retain those communications for future reference.

Information That We Collect Automatically

Log Information

Our web server collects normal information about all interactions in a log data file. The data includes the date and time of each access, the IP address, and any referring information available from the link clicked to arrive at our site.

This information may be used by us from time to time to improve our services, or diagnose issues with the service.

Analytics Information

We use Google Analytics to track our visitor activity. Google Analytics logs information about each visitor, and lets us see how the site is being utilized. The tracking information lets us see basic information about visitors to the site, and how long they are spending in each area.

Our usage of the data provided by Google Analytics is consistent with the Google Analytics Terms of Service. You can see more information about how Google Analytics uses cookies, and the options to opt-out on their detail page here.

For those who don’t want even this minimal level of tracking, Google also offers a complete opt-out tool that you can install in your browser. You can find it here.

Google Analytics Demographic Tracking

We utilize Google Analytics in the least intrusive way available by disabling their optional extra demographic tracking. In addition, we use an Analytics configuration which discards the last 8 bits of your IP address to further anonymize your use of the site.

We do not directly provide any personal information about our users to Google or any other advertiser. The data provided is only that which is generated by your browser through your visits to our site. If you so choose, the same Google-provided opt-out mechanisms are effective for preventing their collection of analytics data.

Browser Cookies

In addition to the usage to cookies that may be sent to your browser by Google Analytics, we use browser cookies to track some of your activity on our site including the option to remember your login information between visits.

Exercise and Quiz Results

We store the results of the language exercises and quizzes, and may use that information in an aggregated way to determine which areas of Spanish are most problematic for our visitors.

Social Networks

Social Network Tracking

If you stay logged in to your Facebook account or accounts with other social network providers, be aware that these companies commonly track your visits across the Internet.

This tracking is enabled by your browser when it encounters content or login buttons for those social networks on whatever site where they may exist, including this one.

In each case, the data collected is subject to the privacy policy of the individual social network. If this is a concern, you should consider logging out from those accounts while browsing the web.

Logging in via Facebook or Google

This site also offers the ability to use your account information at Facebook, Google or other Internet providers to ease the process of creating an account here, and subsequently logging in to your account.

If you use that function, we will have access to the information disclosed to you at the time of linking your account with this site. We will use this information only as needed to administer our site here.

Whether you use that function or not, if your browser is logged into Facebook or the other providers at the time of your visit, those providers can and will collect some tracking information about your visit.

Sharing Information

Who we share your data with

We have attempted to detail every third party that will receive any of your data in the descriptions above. It is possible that as the site evolves, additional third-party services may be utilized to enhance our offering.

In every case, our basic principle is quite simple... We will attempt to share as little data as is practical to administer our site and offer our services to you.

How Long Do We Retain Your Information

Data Lifetime

In general, once you create an account on our site, we will retain the information you provide for the life of the site. If in the future you choose to remove your account, we will make our best effort to remove your information.

Be aware that in some cases, such as comments that you made in discussions, it is possible that your contributions will remain if they form an integral part of the discussion.

We will make a common sense assessment in determining our policy in these cases.

If you have specific questions about our policy in this regard, please contact us.
