Privacy Policy & Frequently Asked Questions

What's Flippity's privacy policy?

  • Flippity will not abuse, misuse, sell, or share your information to anyone, not only because that's the right thing to do, but also because we don't have any of your (or your students') information in the first place.
  • Flippity accesses data that you've publicly published on your Google Drive and uses your web browser to reformat it. Nothing gets uploaded, downloaded, saved, or stored.
  • Delete your spreadsheet (or stop publishing it) and your data disappears.

Is Flippity free to use?

  • Yes, but some features are supported by ads.
  • The Flippity website (including underlying code) is copyrighted. All rights reserved.

  • (A good QR code reader app will help people find your flashcards, spelling words, badge trackers, etc.)
