Children Under 13
RewriteU is committed to children’s privacy.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important to rewriteU. For that reason, we created certain features designed to help protect Personal Information relating to children who are less than 13 years of age (“Child Users”). RewriteU does not knowingly permit Child Users to register directly for our products and services. If rewriteU learns that Personal Information of a Child user has been collected on our Site without parental consent, then rewriteU will take appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian (“Parent”) and discover that your child under the age of 13 has a registered account with our Site without your consent, please alert rewriteU at and request that we delete that child’s personal information from our systems.
Content Generated by a Child.
After a Parent registers his or her child with our Site, certain activities on our sites and applications allow children to create or manipulate content and save it with rewriteU. These activities do not require children to provide any personal information and therefore will not result in notice to the parent or require parental consent. If an activity potentially allows a child to insert personal information in their created content, we will either pre-screen the submission to delete any personal information, or we will seek verifiable parental consent by email for the collection. RewriteU will not post or share any content provided by students that includes personal information. If rewriteU intends to post content publicly or share it with a third party, rewriteU will obtain parental consent prior to doing so.
Your acceptance of these terms
By using this Site, you signify your acceptance of this policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to this policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.
