In our day jobs, we are scientists. In From Here To There, we just collect the data we need to pursue our research. Your puzzle-solving patterns are sent to our server to help us better understand how learners explore math. We use this data to report to the academic community unique insights into how people understand mathematics, and also to improve the app for future users. These patterns consist of which objects you tap and slide, where you slide them to, and what answers you give.
We don’t track any data that could identify you as an individual. Before your data is sent to our server, all identifying information is scrambled so that no one, including us, can figure out who you are or which iPad was used. We don’t give or sell any data to any other businesses or use it for any advertising. We do take the results of many users together, and report patterns we find in journals and at conferences so that we and other scientists can understand better how people learn mathematics. If you do not want data about you collected at all, you can simply slide the switch in the "About" section of the app to the off position.
