Short Form Privacy Notice

Effective February 12, 2019

The Home Base app features games and filtered user postings that are synchronized with the Home Base website located at https://www.scholastic.com/homebase.  

The Scholastic Kids Privacy Policy located at https://www.scholastic.com/privacy.htm#kidsprivacy applies to this app. This notice contains specific information about the data collected in this app, and how that data is used.


Collection and Use

Registration:  Registration is not required to use the app.  To save game progress, though, a user must have a Scholastic Kids online account. Users can log in with an existing account, or create a Scholastic Kids account in the app or on www.scholastic.com/kids. To create an account, the user picks a user name from a list, creates a password, and provides an email address. The email address is used to send a one-time email to the user confirming registration. The user’s email address is then encrypted or “hashed” using one-way encryption, so the email cannot be read. Scholastic uses the hashed email address only for account retrieval if the user forgets the password. The user name and password can be used on other kids’ sites operated by Scholastic Inc.

Chat:  User postings in the app are filtered to detect and remove personally identifiable information or objectionable content.

Friending: Registered users can send “friend” requests to other Spirit Animals users. Friends can see each other’s game progress and postings and invite other friends to join multiplayer games. Friends cannot send freely typed messages through the app, and there are no tools provided for users to share personal information with each other through the app.

Purchasing:  Buying and selling within the app are done with virtual currency for virtual goods.  There is no in-app purchasing using real money.  There are links out of the app to other free Scholastic apps in the app store.



The email address collected for account registration is not made public or shared with third parties for their own use.



We use analytics software to measure traffic and usage trends and to help us better understand the functionality of the app on users’ devices. This software may record information such as how often a child uses the application, events that occur within the app, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the app was downloaded from. We use this information only to administer, improve, monitor and analyze use of our service. We do not link the information we store in analytics software to any user log-ins or personal information. We do not engage in online behavioral advertising in the app or on third party sites or apps using data collected through the app.


Location Services

This app does not collect location information.



Scholastic uses encryption to protect personal information transmitted through the app.


We keep kids’ personal information as long as reasonably necessary to perform the function for which it was collected.
