Identity of Registrants
SpelllingCity.com provides spelling practice on a website where teachers and parents can post word lists. To maximize privacy and security, we require teachers and parents to set up accounts if they wish to post word lists or comments. In addition, we verify each user with a verification email that assures that the email that they registered under is actually available to them. This does not verify identity beyond the confirmation of the email.
You should be aware that if you register for an account as a parent or educator, your name and user name become viewable by the public. VocabularySpellingCity.com has no method for verifying whether someone who registers as a teacher at a particular school is truly that teacher or works at that school.
All VocabularySpellingCity.com users should be aware of this possibility and take appropriate precautions. When made aware of a fraudulent account, VocabularySpellingCity.com will take measures to ban that user. However, these measures are limited to closing the particular account and banning future registrations using the particular email.
