Personal Information includes your email, name, date of birth, marital status, address, phone numbers, photographs or other information that is personally identifiable to you, which you submit to us or is gathered by us through your use of the Services.
1. INFORMATION COLLECTED VIA TECHNOLOGY
In an effort to improve the quality of the Services, we may track information provided to us by your browser, your mobile device or by our software applications when you view or use the Services, such as the website you came from (known as the “referring URL”), the type of browser you use, the device from which you connected to the Services, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. We may track this information using cookies, or small text files which include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to a user’s browser from our servers and are stored on the user’s computer hard drive. Sending a cookie to a user’s browser enables us to collect Non-Personal information about that user and keep a record of the user’s preferences when utilizing our services, both on an individual and aggregate basis. The Company may use both persistent and session cookies; persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your session and until you delete them, while session cookies expire when you close your browser.
2. INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE BY REGISTRATION AND USE OF THE SERVICES
3. INFORMATION PROVIDED BY DISTRICTS, SCHOOLS, ADMINISTRATORS AND TEACHERS
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, 20 USC §1232g, and the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (hereinafter “FERPA”) allows schools to share student records that may contain students’ personal information with certain service providers when the service provider is acting as an agent of the school and is performing services that would otherwise be performed by the school’s own employees, without the necessity of obtaining parental consent for such disclosure. We comply with FERPA by giving the school direct control over the student’s personal information and refraining from re-disclosing or using any such personal information for any other reason than to provide our Services. We rely on our compliance with FERPA as the basis for consent to receive any student personal information provided to us by any district, school, administrators or teachers.
II. HOW WE USE AND SHARE INFORMATION
In general, the Personal Information you provide to us is used to provide you with the content and features of the Sites and Apps which make up the Services. It is also used to help us communicate with you. For example, we may use Personal Information to contact users in response to questions, solicit feedback from users, provide technical support, and inform users about promotional offers.
We may share Personal Information with outside parties if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to meet any applicable legal process or enforceable governmental request; to enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations; address fraud, security or technical concerns; or to protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
III. HOW WE PROTECT INFORMATION
We implement security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. Your account is protected by your account password and we urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe by not disclosing your password and by logging out of your account after each use. We further protect your information from potential security breaches by using certain technological security measures that may include encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology or by using a third-party hosting service that employs similar security measures. However, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks. In the event of a security breach involving any personal information, we will take prompt steps to mitigate the breach, evaluate and respond to the intrusion and provide notice to any affected users.
IV. YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING THE USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. When we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail.
V. OUR RENTENTION AND DELETION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will retain your personal information for so long as reasonably necessary to allow your use of the Services or as required by law or contractual commitment, whichever period is longer. After this period has expired, we will delete the personal information. This period does not apply to non-personal information which we reserve the right to retain indefinitely for our own purposes. In addition, if requested by you in writing, we will delete your personal information from our systems once we have verified your identity.
