Version Effective Date: June 30, 2020
We work to protect the privacy and security of all of our users, including students, to make sure your information is safe, private and available. We strive to collect only the data needed to provide and improve our services.
We do not advertise in any of our products, sell your personal information to anyone, or track users to target ads on other websites. All users are automatically opted out of selling their data for any reason.
What Information We Collect
Information We Collect from Teachers or Administrators
Account information - If you have an account (which your school or district may have created on your behalf), we may collect your name, email address, a password, your school and/or district, and the classes you teach (grade, subject, class name) and the names, grade, email address, and identifiers of the students in your classes. If you or your school or district registers through or otherwise grants access to a third-party integrated service (“Integrated Service”), such as Google, MS365, Clever, Classlink or direct integration with your SIS, portal or product dashboard, we may collect Personal Information that is already associated with your Integrated Service account. If you create or upload assessments or other academic or educational resources or materials (“Educational Materials”), we collect the content of these materials and metadata you provide about them, such as tags, DOK levels and alignment to learning standards.
Communications information - If you contact us via online submission, telephone, electronic mail or regular mail, we may keep a record of that correspondence. If you post comments or opinions to us on the Services or third-party websites where we have a profile or presence (e.g. on our Facebook page), we may keep a record of the comments.
Information about how you use the Service - We collect data about how you use the Services, such as the time you access the Service, the length of your session(s), the website you come to the Service from, selections and choices you make and preferences that you set when using the Service as well as any data you input while conducting any work, including assessments, in the Service.
Information about how you connect to the Service - We collect data about the computer or other electronic device (“Device”) you use to connect to the Service such as details about the type of Device (which can include unique device identifying numbers), its operating system, browser and applications connected to the Service through the device, your Internet service provider or mobile network, your IP address and your Device’s telephone number (if it has one). While we collect the location of your school or district, we do not automatically collect information about your actual location, other than an approximate location (usually no more precise than city level), which can be determined from your IP address.
Information We Collect from Students
Account information - No personally identifiable information, such as name or email address is required to create a student account on the Services. However, if a student, teacher or school or district administrator provides it, we may collect the student’s name, a username (which may be an email address or student ID number), a password, the student’s school and/or district, and their class enrollments (grade, subject, class name, teacher).
Demographic information - If a student, teacher or school or district administrator provides it, we may collect a student’s demographic information such as age, gender, race and eligibility for school services (e.g., IEP information on special education services) solely for the purpose of providing the Services. We do not share or use this information for any other purpose.
Assessment information - As a student uses the Services, we collect information such as the activity completed, time and duration of accessing the Services, assessment and other text entered by students, scores, number of attempts, and teacher feedback, and any other information a student enters while using the Services.
How We Use Your Information - Teachers or Administrators
To provide the Services to you and your school or district - We use information (if any) collected from teachers, administrators and students to create and manage accounts, administer assessments and produce reports of usage patterns and assessment results. Users can access this data based on their role, for example, students may access data only about their account. Teachers may access data about their own account, or those of students currently or previously enrolled in their classes. Administrators may access data about teachers and students in their school or district, respectively.
To personalize the Services - We use information collected from teachers and administrators to display information and features that may be of interest to you, or tailored to how you use the Services. For example, we display assessment content relevant to your subject area and optimize the display for the device you’re using. We may display names of teachers who have created accounts on the Services to teachers who join the same school or district.
To improve the Services - We use information collected from teachers and administrators to understand and analyze usage trends and preferences of our users to improve the functionality of the Services. We also use this data to diagnose and address technical issues with the Services, and to detect and investigate illegal activities, breaches of any agreements entered into between you and us, and threats to the security of the Services.
To provide you with information about our Services - We use information collected from teachers and administrators to respond to your inquiries and address comments and issues you have about the Services. We also use this information to notify you of changes to the Services, or provide you information about new products or updates to the Services that we feel may interest you, in accordance with your activities and preferences. We do not share Personal Information of any of our users with third parties for their marketing purposes, nor track users to target advertisements on our or other websites.
How We Use Your Information - Information from and about Students
We use the information we collect from and about students only to provide the Services to students, teachers, schools and districts. We use information collected from teachers, administrators and students to create and manage accounts, administer assessments and produce reports of assessment results. Student data may only be accessed by the student, a parent or guardian, the student’s teachers or an administrator at the student’s school or district. We use aggregated and de-identified student information, such as assessment responses and scores, to analyze and improve the quality of questions in our item banks. We do not allow advertising on the Services, do not sell any student information, and do not track students to target ads on other websites. We do not collect information or create a student profile for any other reason than to provide our Services.
When we share teacher or administrator information
We share information you explicitly authorize us to share
Any assessments or assessment questions a teacher or administrator creates or uploads to a shared library will be accessible to other users with access to that library. If a teacher or administrator shares a draft assessment with other users in order to collaborate with them, those users will have access to that assessment. If you, or a school or district administrator on your behalf, adds a co-teacher to your class, the co-teacher will have access to teacher and student data in your account. Students do not have the ability to share any data about themselves outside the Services when using the Services.
We share information with administrative users at schools and districts
Administrators with access to the school or district version of the Services can view and edit teacher and student data in their school or district, including profile data, usage data, assessment responses and results, and individual and aggregated reports.
We may share information with third parties that provide a service to us or to you
We may disclose information in a change of business
We will share data when required by law, or to protect us and others
We may disclose user information to respond to a subpoena, court order or other legal duty or obligation (including without limitations requests or demands from law enforcement and government authorities and regulators). We may also disclose information to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual prohibited activities, including but not limited to, fraud and situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person or to prevent financial loss to any person or entity.

How we keep your data secure

We encrypt Personal Data while at rest, and protect your login information and the transmission of data using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

If we learn of a data security incident that compromises or appears to compromise your Personal Information, then we will attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may also post a notice on the Services if a data security incident occurs. We delete or de-identify data including personal identifiable information as well as indirect identifiers, such as an email, IP address, and the other kinds of information that are ‘technical’ and ‘non-personal for all users when it is no longer necessary to provide Services to you or your school or district, or when requested by a school or district at the termination of a contract.
