Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Google Analytics and MonsterInsights collect data so that we can see the demographics of our audience. This data may show us things like the kind of device you used to access our site, your global location, and if you are a returning reader. You can find more details of what data is collected on the Google Analytics website. This information helps us better understand who our audience are and how we can meet their needs.

It is against Google’s policies to send any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to their servers.

Featured Teachers can request for their website and social profiles to be shared, but we will not include your phone number or email address in the article. Those wishing to contact Featured Teachers via email must do so through Silly Fish Learning Ltd to ensure the privacy of our contributors.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
