In addition, we may transfer personal information about you if we are acquired by, sold to, or merged with another company. We reserve the right to assign and/or transfer all personal information in our system in the event that Instructal is sold to or merged with another party.

How We Recognize You

In general, you can visit Instructal.com without revealing any information about yourself. It is our intent to let you know before we collect any information from you online. Our site is not setup to track, collect or distribute personal information about you. We cannot, for instance, determine your email address by examining electronic records. We use the electronic records to compile statistics about how collectively our visitors interact with our Web site. These statistics contain no personal information and are only used by the Instructal technical support staff.

We have not enabled Google AdSense on our site but we may do so in the future.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.
We do not specifically market to children under 13.
