In short: We collect personal information provided to the Company by Schools, including student data, to provide a Service to the School.
We may collect information about students directly from Schools, including School and District administrators, teachers, and students. Users will not be required to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to use our Services.
Personal Information Provided by You. The personal information that is collected depends on the context of the interactions each School has with us, and the Services used, and the choices made. Our services are retained by a School or district to provide and host the Services on the School’s behalf and under the School’s control. The School customizes the content, controls who can register for and use the various features of the Services and who can access the Personal Information posted or maintained on the Services.The personal information we collect, or which may be provided to us by each School, may include the following:
We consider student data and student records (“Student Data”) to be confidential. We will not use Student Data for any purpose other than to provide the Service on the School’s behalf.
When the Service is used as part of a School’s educational technology strategy, personal information related to students that is (i) provided to the Company by a School, or (ii) collected by the Company during the provision of the Service to a School, may include information defined as “educational records” by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”) or “covered information” under California’s Student Online Personal Information Protection Act (“SOPIPA”).
Student Data is owned and controlled by the School. Our collection and use of Student Data is governed by our contracts with the Schools and by applicable privacy laws.
How we share and disclose Student Data: Student Data and account usage data may be disclosed to, or accessible by users who are authorized to use the Service on behalf of the School.
How we retain Student Data: We will not knowingly retain Student Data beyond the time period required to support an educational purpose, unless authorized by the School.
It should be noted that the Service uses Student Data shared by the School with the Company. Schools are responsible for maintaining Student Data, and retaining it for educational purposes through their use of the Service.
Questions about Student Data: For questions relating to Student Data provided to the Company by a School, please direct those questions to the School.
Other Information Collected: To provide a personalized and high-quality experience for our users, we, and our third-party partners, may use various technologies that automatically record certain technical information from the browser or device when a user visits our website, reads our emails, uses our Service, or otherwise engages with us. Technical information like this is typically collected through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, file information, and similar technology. We may collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help us measure web traffic and usage trends for the Service, and to understand more about our users by monitoring aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, usage, and demographic patterns on our website.
In Short: We process your information to provide, improve, and administer our Services, communicate with you, for security and fraud prevention, and to comply with law.
We do not use Student Data for marketing purposes.
We process your personal information for a variety of reasons, including:
In Short: We only process personal information when we believe it is necessary and we have a valid legal reason (i.e., legal basis) to do so under applicable law, like with your consent, to comply with laws, to provide Schools with the Service to enter into or fulfill our contractual obligations, to protect user rights, or to fulfill our legitimate business interests.
If you are located in the EU or UK, this section applies to you.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and UK GDPR require us to explain the valid legal bases we rely on in order to process your personal information. As such, we may rely on the following legal bases to process your personal information:
In Short: We may share information in specific situations described in this section and/or with the following third parties.
We may need to share your personal information in the following situations:
We may also share information with others in an aggregated or otherwise anonymized form that does not reasonably identify you directly as an individual.
In Short: We keep your information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this privacy notice unless otherwise required by law.
We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy notice, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting, or other legal requirements). No purpose in this notice will require us to keep your personal information for longer than the period of time in which users have an account with us.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
In Short: We aim to protect your personal information through a system of organizational and technical security measures.
We have implemented appropriate and reasonable technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, despite our safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our Services is at your own risk. You should only access the Services within a secure environment.

To the extent possible, we will avoid requesting additional information from you for the purposes of verification.
