Revision Date: December 14, 2018
This policy applies to information we collect on this Site, through email and other electronic messages between you and this Site, and through mobile and desktop applications you download from this Site, which provide dedicated non-browser-based interaction between you and this Site.
You can generally visit our Site without revealing any Personal Information; however, if you choose to use our Services we may be required to collect Personal Information that we consider necessary to provide you with services and, once you agree to provide us with Personal Information, you are no longer anonymous to us. You may also choose to upload Student Data in order to get the most value out of our Services. In these cases, we will take reasonable actions to ensure the security and privacy of both Personal Data and Student Data.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect both Personal Information and Student Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Any transmission of information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone and to notify us immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account.
The Company has designated a party assigned to privacy and security issues, who can be reached by emailing email@example.com with any questions or issues. A subject line of “Security & Privacy” will help expedite any issues that must be addressed.
Subcontractors with access to Student Data are required to comply with all security and privacy requirements set forth by Company and any other applicable standards.
The Company stores data in facilities located within the United States.
Privacy Incident Procedures
The Company will notify the Account Owner when there has been an unauthorized release, breach, disclosure, or acquisition of Student Data. Such notification will follow the procedures outlined in an agreement with the Account Owner, or if none exists, will follow the following procedures:
If the Student Data is accessed or obtained by an unauthorized individual, the Company will notify the Account Owner of the incident within 30 days using the following process:
The security breach notification will be delivered via electronic mail to the Account Owner, at the email address on file with the Company.
The notification will contain the following information:
What Happened - how the breach was able to occur and when the breach occurred;
What Information Was Involved - the specific information that may have been compromised by the breach;
What We Are Doing - the current and next steps in the Company’s procedures that are being followed;
What You Can Do - steps the Account Owner can take to help; and
For More Information - contact information and resources for additional information.
The Company will assist any local education agency to issue additional notifications as required by law.
Account Owners have the ability to request that Company delete Student Data associated with accounts, except in instances where such data is:
Otherwise prohibited from deletion or required to be retained under state or federal law, or
Stored as a copy as part of a disaster recovery storage system and that is
Inaccessible to the public, and
Unable to be used in the normal course of business by the Company.
Account Owners may also request the deletion of any Student Data stored as part of disaster recovery by electronic mail. If possible, the Company will delete the requested Student Data within 45 business days of receiving such a request.
The Company strives to comply with, and assist Account Owners with complying with, applicable parts of FERPA, IDEA, SOPIPA, PPRA, AB 1584, ARRA Public 111-5, 42 US Code, and HIPAA. A significant portion of this responsibility, however, falls to the school district or other organization, and use of the Site and Services does not free the Account Owner from separately complying with published standards to ensure the security, privacy of student data, and notification of breach.
Note that The Company is not a covered entity under HIPAA, and is not a business associate of any covered entity under HIPAA. As a result, The Company is not required to comply with HIPAA standards. If you or your organization are a covered entity under HIPAA, and are required to sign business associates agreements with all 3rd party vendors and contractors, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting additional information about a business associate agreement.
