Data Security

AppleSTEM uses physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your User Information. Such safeguards include requesting a unique password to verify your identity before granting access to your account. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of User Information you transmit to AppleSTEM and you do so at your own risk. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times. Once AppleSTEM receives your User Information, reasonable efforts will be made to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

Children's Privacy

AppleSTEM expects the person registered to AppleSTEM Site primary account (“Parent Account”) to be an adult 18 years of age or older and expects the registrant of the Parent Account to be the parent or legal guardian of all people registered to any sub-accounts associated with the Parent Account (“Learner Account”) or to have permission of the parent or legal guardian of any non-custodial child for whom an account has been created through the said primary account . AppleSTEM also expects that the registrant of the Parent Account has full knowledge of and has allowed the entry of any personal information into each Learner Account associated with the Parent Account (first name, last name, PIN). If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not set up your own AppleSTEM Parent Account. Have a parent or legal guardian set up her or his own Parent Account and provide you with an associated Learner Account. If we learn that Personal Data of persons under 13 years of age has been collected on the AppleSTEM Site other than the information used to access the AppleSTEM Site, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information from our systems. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under 13 years of age has provided Personal Data to us, then you may alert us at and request that we delete your child's Personal Data from our systems.

In the event that we are acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our Users in preparation for or as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, assignment, assumption, or other change of control.
