Overview
Crossword Hobbyist Inc ("us", "we", or "our") operates https://crosswordhobbyist.com (the "Site"). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site. We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.
Information Collection And Use
While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your email address and billing address ("Personal Information").
Log Data
Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this Log Data.
Communications
We may use your Personal Information to contact you with account updates and promotional information. You may opt out of receiving promotional emails by clicking the 'unsubscribe' link at the bottom of each promotional email.
Cookies
Cookies are files with a small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer's hard drive. Like many sites, we use cookies to keep you logged in when you move from one page to another on our site, and to remember you if you check the "remember me" box when you log in. Additionally, we may use any Google Analytics Advertising Features. These help Google show you more relevant ads, including ads from us, and all data is collected in accordance with Google's privacy policies. You can opt out of Google Analytics tracking here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/. You can also instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.
Security
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

COPPA Compliance

We value children’s privacy, and endeavor to protect it under the guidance of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). Our Site is designed to be used primarily by educators and parents above 13 years of age, and we generally do not require or collect personal information directly from children. If you are a parent or educator requesting that a puzzle you create be solved online, we will collect the information you request when setting up the puzzle for online solving. If some of your solvers are under the age of 13, you should request only information that is not considered Personally Identifiable Information. This often means requesting a student ID or school-issued email (that does not contain the student’s name), instead of requesting the student’s name. Alternately, you may receive signed permission from a student’s parents for this information to be collected, either directly or through your school, school district, or state, per FTC guidance at https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/complying-coppa-frequently-asked-questions-0#N.%20COPPA%20AND%20SCHOOLS. We do not share this solver information with anyone except the puzzle creator who requested the solver information. That said, no system is 100% secure. The safest way to keep child information private is not to share it at all. Parents, teachers, and schools have the right to view and request the deletion of any information we have collected about children under 13. Please contact us by using the 'Report an Issue' button at the top of each page to make a request.
Changes To This Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy is effective as of 06 January, 2021, and will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted on this page. We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time and you should check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the Service after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you either through the email address you have provided us, or by placing a prominent notice on our website.
