Interesting!!!

 

I sure wish the lawyers and Congress would just realize that the “age 13 restrictions” are limiting student access to some great learning tools!

However, their Privacy Policy states, 

Does Grammarly Collect Information From Children?

Grammarly does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information through the Site, Service or Software. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce this Policy by instructing their children never to provide personal information through the Site, Service or Software without their permission.

Which seems to indicate that they expect children under 13 to be using the site. I have sent an email to the person in charge of Grammarly.edu in the hopes that he may be able to shed some light on this seeming contradiction. Will let you know what he says if he replies.

I love Grammarly, but the Terms of Service say:

 

By accessing or using the site, services and/or software, you confirm that you are at least 18 years old (or if you are between 13 and 17 years old, inclusive, that you are using the site, services and/or software only with the approval of your parent or guardian), that you are legally able to enter into this agreement, and that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by this agreement.

 

Our administration interprets the phrase “…you are legally able to enter into this agreement…” as requiring that students be at least 18.

 

How are others dealing with this headache?

Hi.

 

Some of my teachers are unhappy with all the misspelled words that are not picked up by the Google Docs spell checker. Are others having this problem? Does anyone have a suggestion for a solution?

 

Thanks.
