Student Privacy

We love helping students share their stories.

And we take the privacy of each student author seriously.

Here are some things you should know about the policies we have in place to protect students identities and keep them safe:

When you create your classroom book… 

Our classroom book templates contain a “Contributors” page that allows teachers to list the names of each student who contributed to the book. If you’d prefer not to include that page, you can opt out.

Many Six-Word Memoirs teachers only use students’ first names and last initials when publishing.

Our publishing and production team is committed to student privacy, and has accommodated a variety of requests from various teachers and administrators. We’d be happy to learn more about your concerns. You can reach out to a member of that team here - contact us.

When you purchase your classroom books…

Once you’ve created a classroom book, our production team creates a personalized order page for your students. The links to these order pages are not indexed or searchable in search engines.

Only individuals who receive access to the order page link can access the page.

Names of students do not appear on the order page.

When it comes to our social media and marketing…

We never share student work or photos without permission.

When we do share student work, we typically anonymize it. This means, we might change a student's name or edit some details in their backstory or author biography to make them unrecognizable.

We always respect schools, parents, and students who tell us that they'd rather not have their work be shared in any way.

We recognize that schools have their own policies and procedures concerning digital communication. If there are special guidelines that we would need to follow in order to support your school in upholding your policy, we’re happy to do so. Just let us know! Contact us here


Contact our Community Manager, Tyler at He’d be happy to give you more information about our policies and to answer your unique questions.
