Big Universe Privacy Policy

Big Universe, Inc. ("Big Universe") takes student privacy and security very seriously. As a school service provider, we take responsibility to both support the effective use of student information and safeguard student privacy and information security. We pledge to carry out responsible stewardship and appropriate use of student personal information according to the commitments below and in adherence to all laws applicable to us as a school service provider.

Our Commitment To Privacy

We commit to:


Big Universe is also a service available to parents.  Big Universe does not target nor seek to collect personally identifiable information from children 13 years or younger.  Parents register and provide Big Universe with an email address and password which are used to name and access an account, and allow users to connect multiple devices to a single trial or subscription.  Any purchase of Big Universe requires a credit card.

Big Universe will periodically email a newsletter to its users for whom it has a valid email address; any user may opt-out of such emails.  Students/children do not receive the newsletter; in fact we do not accept or store student/child email addresses in our system. Big Universe may periodically send out emails to all registered users with valid emails for the purpose of notifying them of information about their account or the Big Universe service in general.
