This is our policy regarding how we collect, use, and disclose the information we, Hiet.co.in, Inc. (“Hiet.co.in”, “we”, “us”, or “our”), collect on our website services at www.Hiet.co.in (the “Website”); through our mobile applications Bookbuilder, FunFinder, and Hiet.co.in Math and Reading Lessons (collectively, the “Apps”); through browser and other web extension applications, such as the Hiet.co.in and Hiet.co.in Kids Google Web Store App, and through the services available through our ;Website, Apps, and other applications (such services, along with the Website, Apps, and applications are, collectively, the “Services”).
Information We Collect
We may collect information about you directly from you, from third parties, and automatically through your use of our Services. We may combine information collected from or about you from these various sources.
Information We Collect Directly from You
We collect information directly from you in several places on our Services, as set forth generally below.
Currently, visitors to our Services are able to access some content without becoming a member. However, if you would like to download worksheets, engage in digital learning experiences, customize or personalize certain content, gain access to certain community features, or rate editorial content, you are required to register to become a member. In order to register, you must supply us with a valid email address and password; as well as some additional voluntary information about you (e.g., your “type”: parent, teacher, or student; school affiliation, grade focus, zip code, etc.).
If you’d like access to one or more of our paid offerings (including Hiet.co.in Pro, Plus, and Workbooks), you’ll need to register for that offering, and you’ll be asked to provide additional personal, billing, or other specified information that we’ll need to charge for and activate the service or product. Customers purchasing one or more of our paid offerings will be asked to provide basic personal information about their children such as a screen name.
Public Forums: Blogs and Comments
At certain times, you may be asked to participate in surveys, which are generally aimed at obtaining general information, such as your reactions to a particular article or feature set on our site. Because information obtained in these surveys is connected with individual subscribers and is used internally to improve our products or better market our services, participation is voluntary.
Contests and Sweepstakes
We sometimes offer contests or sweepstakes in which certain personal information is required for registration, for purposes of verifying the entrants’ identities and notifying the winners. If the contest or sweepstakes is being administered by a third party, this information will be disclosed to that third party. However, entrants may select contest names distinct from their User Names, and the information is not connected with their User Names.
Other Information You Provide Through Our Services
We will also collect any other information that you provide through our Services, such as your name, email address, job title, phone number, school or organization name, account type, payment type, and the contents of any message you submit through our Services.
Information We Collect from Third Parties
You can create an account with us, by logging in through certain third-party accounts, such as Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Clever. By logging in through a third-party account, you grant Hiet.co.in permission to access certain information from that third-party account as explained on the permissions page when you log in, including: your name, email and public profile ID.
Information We Collect Automatically
We use various technologies to collect and store information, including cookies, pixel tags, local storage, such as browser web storage or application data caches, databases, and server logs. This information may include, but is not limited to, account information; IP address; domain name; browser type and operating system; web pages viewed while logged in; links clicked; the length of time spent on our Services; and the referring URL, or the webpage that led a user to our Services. In addition, we will collect information about user activities within our Services, such as which games a user plays, the number of correct and incorrect answers, and download history.
Tracking data consists of both individual and aggregated tracking information and is automatically gathered using “cookies.” A cookie is a small data file containing information, such as a user’s member name, that is written to the user’s hard drive by a web server and used to track the pages visited.
Disclosures of Information
We do not sell or disclose the personal information about you described above to nonaffiliated parties (including but not limited to companies, authorities, institutions, or individuals) except to provide you with products or services, when we have your permission, or under the circumstances listed below. We do not disclose your personal information to third parties for those third parties’ own marketing purposes.

- In response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, from law enforcement agencies or state and federal regulators, or as otherwise required by law;
- To protect the rights, property, or safety of us or other persons, including to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues, or anything else that we may consider to be, or pose a risk of being, an illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity;

We have implemented safeguards to protect the information we collect. Please be aware that despite our efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
If you are a parent, teacher, or school administrator, we encourage you to talk to your children about online safety and how they can protect themselves online. For more information, see the Federal Trade Commission’s Protecting Kids Online resource.
Your Independent Relationship With Other Companies
In addition, some of our advertising partners will on occasion take polls of our visitors, in which case you would provide your information directly to the advertising partner. Such polls are for use by the advertising partner, and participation is voluntary. We do not assure privacy of information voluntarily provided in response to a survey or poll.
