Privacy, Safety, and Clarity for Our users
Our privacy goals in clear language
At TeachThought University, our privacy goals are to protect your data and visibility by giving your control over your data and profile while communicating what we collect and why as clearly as possible with complete transparency.
When you click on a link, we receive a (ridiculously small) percentage of any purchase made from that link. Since we never recommend anything that we don’t think might be useful for educators, there’s no real downside to this process. As educators, you can authentic recommendations for things that might be useful for you in your teaching while we receive a percentage that while very minor, could eventually allow us to remove ads from the site altogether–which, again, helps you as educators better navigate, read, and find content useful to you.
We turn down hundreds of posts, ad campaigns, and other for-cost content every year due to a lack of alignment between said content and what we perceive your needs as a progressive educator to be. As you can imagine, recommending poor products and services would be detrimental to both you and to our mission as an organization–not to mention ensure that over time, the effort itself would fail because the recommendations were poor. We try to test, vet, or otherwise evaluate everything we recommend and that extends to any links we provide.
Note as well that 99.9% of our links are not affiliate marketing links and any such links should be marked ‘ad’ or ‘affiliate link.’
You can always get around this and ensure that all profit goes to retailers by searching retailers directly for apps, products, and other services we recommend rather than using the links we’ve provided.
If you have any questions or feedback regarding this policy, feel free to email us directly.
Still have questions?
We don’t like legalese either. Staying on top of constantly changing needs, laws, and regulations globally isn’t easy. Let us know if you have any questions and we’ll do our best to guide you in your use of TeachThought University Data and Privacy tools.
