If you want information shared with other Users, we’ll share it for you.
We provide certain features that may allow you to share information with other Users. Whenever you share information with other Users of our Properties, any Personal Information that you choose to include in, or is associated with, such User Postings will be accessible by such Users. Some of our Users choose to connect their Virtual Academy account with social networks. If you have explicitly agreed that we may do so, Virtual Academy may disclose your Personal Information through a social network or similar service (like Facebook or Google). To control the information that you share, you have the option of modifying your Virtual Academy or social network settings or disconnecting your social network account from your Virtual Academy account.

You should check your privacy settings on each Integrated Service to understand and change the information sent to us through each Integrated Service.
Child Users
Virtual Academy is committed to children’s privacy.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important to Virtual Academy. 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”). Virtual Academy does not knowingly permit Child Users to register directly for our Properties. If Virtual Academy learns that Personal Information of a Child user has been collected on our Properties without parental consent, then Virtual Academy 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 Properties without your consent, please alert Virtual Academy at and request that we delete that child’s personal information from our systems.
How children may register for and use our Properties.
Child Users cannot register for a Virtual Academy account themselves. If a Child User attempts to register for our Properties, Virtual Academy will request the email address of that Child User’s Parent in order to seek consent from that Parent. No information about Child Users is retained during their registration attempt, except the Parent email address for purposes of seeking consent.
Once registered, you can create a restricted account for your Child User, monitor the data on your Child User’s account, or revoke a child’s permission to use the Properties by deleting the account.
Parents always have the option to delete their Child User’s account.
Restrictions on Child Users.
Virtual Academy attempts to restrict a Child User’s access to certain features that could result in disclosure of Personal Information by the Child User. A restricted account limits sharing and displaying private information about the Child User in various ways, including:

  • The Parent can edit Personal Information found in the restricted account
  • The Parent can restrict Child Users from adding Coaches

Some other features of our Properties may, however, permit a Child User to enter free-form text through which the Child User could enter Personal Information that would be visible to other Users. This may occur, for instance, if a Child User enters Personal Information in answering an exercise problem or creating other projects on our Properties. If you are the Parent of a Child User, please advise your Child User of the risks of posting Personal information on our Properties or any other online services, as information posted may be used by others without restriction.
As a Parent, you can choose to share information about your child as you deem appropriate. Virtual Academy won’t share Personal Information about your child or his/her progress with anyone other than you, your child and any permitted Coaches, unless we receive your permission (or as otherwise noted in this Privacy Notice).
As a Parent, you have the ability to control information about your Child User. To review, update, or delete information collected from your Child User, you can do so in the “Your Children” section within your account. To refuse future collection or use of your child’s Personal Information, you can delete your Child User’s account or contact us at
