HOW ACCELERATE LEARNING INC USES STUDENT DATA
This section describes how we collect, use, disclose, and process Student Data collected through the Services.
General Student Data Practices: In addition to the data collection practices specified in this Privacy Notice, we also collect the following information in connection with Students and schools and educational organizations:
- Information about Schools and Educational Organizations: We ask for certain information when a student or teacher registers, or if the representative corresponds with us online, including a name, school/organization name, school district, school/organization email address, school country and state, role at school/organization, ethnicity, years teaching, current teaching grade level and current teaching assignments, and relevant IT and equipment information required for Students to participate. Representatives, teachers, and mentors/coaches may also provide information about Students, such as a class roster. We may also collect information provided by a school or educational organization if the school or educational organization sends us a message, posts content to our Sites or through our Services, or responds to emails or surveys. Once a school or educational organization begins using the Services, we will collect content and information provided by the school or educational organization through their use of the Services and we will keep records of activities related to the Services.
- Information about Students: We collect information about Students from the school or educational organization or, in limited instances, directly from the student, including name, grade or date of birth, email address, school/educational organization (name, city, state).
- Use of Video and Audio Services: Depending on their policies, settings and how they use our Services to provide educational services, the school or organization providing educational services may be able to see or to share the personal information from Students who join classes, meetings, mentor sessions, or webinars on their account. The school or other organization’s use and disclosure of Student Data is subject to the school or educational organization’s policies, not Accelerate Learning INC’s.
- Student Data Usage and Content: Depending on their settings, the school or other organization providing educational services – and the people they designate — can access (i) (ii) information about the participants who joined classrooms or meetings on their account (including participant name, display name, email address and participant ID); (iii) the content of recordings hosted on their account, as well as a transcript of audio, if enabled; and (iv) information provided in response to polls, Q&A or other content shared during classrooms, webinars, and meetings on their account. In addition, teachers may be able to upload video and audio files.
Compliance with Laws: We do not use Student Data for any purpose other than to provide the Services, in accordance with our contractual agreements with the participating schools, our Terms and Conditions, and this Privacy Notice. Accelerate Learning INC does not own or control Student Data, which belongs to the Student or the School that contracts with Accelerate Learning INC to provide the Services.
The Accelerate Learning INC Services are designed to provide protections for Student Data as required by applicable privacy laws throughout all 50 states and territories. For example:
- The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). This Privacy Notice and our Services are designed to meet our responsibilities to protect personal information from the Students’ educational records under FERPA. We agree to work with our school partners to jointly ensure compliance with the FERPA regulations.
- Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Accelerate Learning INC products and services are not marketed to children under 13 and we do not knowingly solicit data from children under the age of 13.
- Students Online Personal Information Protection Act (“SOPIPA”). This Privacy Notice and our Services are designed to comply with SOPIPA. We do not use Student Data for targeted advertising purposes. We do not use collected information to amass a profile of a Student except in furtherance of providing the features and functionality of the Services. We never sell Student Data unless the sale is part of a corporate transaction, such as a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, or other sale of assets, in which case we make efforts to ensure the successor entity honors the privacy commitments made in this Privacy Notice and/or we will notify the school and provide an opportunity to opt-out by deleting Student Data before the data transfer occurs.
- California Assembly Bill 1584 (“AB 1584”). This Privacy Notice and our Services are designed to comply with AB 1584. Pupil records obtained by Accelerate Learning INC from a local educational agency (“LEA”) continue to be the property of and under the control of the LEA. Parents, legal guardians, or eligible pupils may review personally identifiable information in the pupil’s records and correct erroneous information by contacting their LEA directly. In the event of an unauthorized disclosure of a pupil’s records, Accelerate Learning INC will notify the LEA and will provide the LEA with information to be shared with the affected parent(s), legal guardians(s), or eligible pupil(s). Pupil records will be deleted and/or de-identified in accordance with our agreements with each school and as described in this Privacy Notice.
Student Data Privacy Principles: We are committed to the following principles to protect Student Data:
- We collect, maintain, use, and share Student Data only to provide and support the Services as described in our Privacy Notice, to maintain, develop, support, or improve our Services, and as otherwise permitted by our agreements or with the consent of the parent, guardian, Student, organization, or school.
- We do not use or disclose Student Data for targeted advertising purposes. While we do permit third-party advertising partners to operate on our Services for the purpose of retargeting, analytics, and attribution services, we take steps to disable third-party ad networks from collecting information for targeted advertising purposes within Accelerate Learning INC Learning Platforms.
- We maintain a comprehensive data security program designed to protect the types of Student Data maintained by the Services.
- We will clearly and transparently disclose our data policies and practices to our users.
- We will never sell Student Data unless the sale is part of a corporate transaction, such as a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, or other sale of assets, in which case we will require the new owner to continue to honor the terms provided in this Privacy Notice or we will provide the school with notice and an opportunity to opt-out of the transfer of Student Data by deleting the Student Data before the transfer occurs.
- We will not make any material changes to our Privacy Notice or contractual agreements that relate to the collection or use of Student Data without first giving notice to the school and providing a choice before the Student Data is used in a materially different manner than was disclosed when the information was collected.
How to Review and Delete Student Data: A school or other educational organization may review and delete a Student’s information, if in compliance with any applicable law. Student data is retained within the system during its useful life. If a student exits a district\organization, their data will remain in the system until that year’s end of year process. Student information may be removed from the system at any time by appropriate district personnel. In all cases, all backup information will be removed with a 30-day rotation cycle. If you are a parent or Student, please contact your school or other educational organization to access any personal information, limit a Student’s access to the Services, or delete personal information or the Student’s entire profile.
If you have any questions about our practices with regard to Student Data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
