The Running Reality Organization
The Running Reality Organization refers to the core team of people building the Running Reality project. This Organization maintains the Running Reality software code and data, the application servers, the social media accounts, the software code signing security certificates, and the telemetry systems.
Running Reality collects and records certain user preference and aggregate behavioral data. The user preference data is collected to help return users to their most recently visited locations in history. The aggregate behavioral data is to assess the performance of the Running Reality servers and to identify areas in history receiving the most page-views. For user accounts, the data collected is configurable and to assure only that person can submit historical data edits in their name.

Running Reality does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we determine we have collected personal information from a child younger than 13 years of age, we will take reasonable measures to remove that information from our systems. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information to Running Reality. We encourage parents, legal guardians, and teachers to monitor usage of Running Reality on any Internet-connected device.
When using a Running Reality lesson plan, there is a student access URL that includes an access key. This key is not unique to the student and does not allow Running Reality to track student behavior. The purpose of the key is that it lets a student -- who may be younger than 13 -- access a resource purchased by a teacher and that is not available to the public. This key grants access to the resource and is used for page/step synchronization, but is not used for tracking.
Running Reality uses third-party services for telemetry tracking of the server and aggregate user behavior. Running Reality does not collect or disclose personal identification information to such third-party services, such as email addresses.
- Google Analytics for aggregate user behavior monitoring. All data is anonymous.
- Google Cloud for server monitoring, including page requests.
- Google Cloud for geolocating user's country to initially center the web map.
Running Reality uses third-party OpenID and OAuth systems for user login, if a user wishes to grant such permissions. This lets users authenticate to Running Reality using OpenID, OAuth, or OpenID-like credentials from Facebook and Google. Using these services means Running Reality does not receive any personal data during authentication beyond a) confirmation of identity and b) email address.
