Users of the Platform (“Users”) fall into three categories:
“Students” are Users who are enrolled at a school or educational institution and using the Platform under an agreement we have with that school, educational institution or the applicable school district in which such school or education institution is affiliated (collectively, “School”).
“Educators” are Users who are teachers or administrators of Students using the Platform under an agreement we have with the Student and Educator’s affiliated School.
“Independent Study Users” are Users who contract with us directly to use the Platform independently of any agreement we may have with a school, educational institution or school district.
We use the term “User Information” in this policy to refer to information that personally identifies a User of the Platform as well as other information we receive or create in the course of a User’s usage of the Platform. We use the term “Student Information” to refer to User Information that specifically pertains to a Student.
II. DATA WE COLLECT
When you register for, access and use the Platform, you or your School may provide us with Personal Data, Device Data and/or Usage Data (as defined below).
For the general purposes of authentication, class roster management, and compliance with applicable laws, we collect information that is used to identify individual Users (the “Personal Data”). Personal Data does not include Data that has been aggregated or made anonymous such that it can no longer be reasonably associated with a specific person or device.
The Personal Data that we collect from Users includes:
First and last name
Students, Educators, and Independent Study Users
Students, Educators, and Independent Study Users
Identification, authentication, notifications
Students, Educators, and Independent Study Users
Identification, consultation with Educators
Students, Educators, and Independent Study Users
Independent Study Users
Credit Card Billing
School name and District Name
Student and Educators
Subject matters taught
Identification, recommendations for curriculum and targeted content
Independent Study Users
We collect information from you directly when you visit the Platform and register for an INVENTORCLOUD account. Some of this information may be considered Personal Data under various applicable laws. Note that we may de-identify Personal Data so that it is non-personal, such as by aggregating it or converting it to a code. We will treat de-identified information as non-personal to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
You have the right to decline to share certain elements of Personal Data that we ask you to provide, but must note that doing so may limit your use of certain features and functionality of the Platform. You may edit certain Personal Data you provide to INVENTORCLOUD at any time by accessing your account through the Platform.
Like most web-based services, we (or our Service Providers) may automatically receive and log information from your browser or your device when you use our Platform (“Device Data”). Examples of Device Data we may automatically receive and log when you use the Platform include web browser type, your device’s operating system, and your device’s geolocation, among others.
We take measures to ensure that our Platform and our Service Providers only collect the minimum amount of Device Data needed to deliver the Platform in a seamless way, help us improve our products, and deliver high-quality customer support. The Device Data we collect is analyzed and may be aggregated and combined with similar aggregate Device Data of other users the Platform, as well as associated with the Personal Data of individual Users. If you use INVENTORCLOUD on different devices, we may link the information we collect from those different devices to help us provide a consistent Platform experience across your different devices.
User interactions with our Platform generate data we refer to as “Usage Data”. Usage Data for Students and Independent Study Users may include, for example, the projects a User chooses to complete, when the User starts and stops a lesson, and student responses in the lesson. Usage Data for Educators may include their class rosters. We also may track mouse clicks and taps, mouse movement, webpages entered and exited, the number of pages visited by a User, and the duration and dates of visits.
Usage Data will be used for educational and product development purposes only.
III. HOW WE USE DATA
We and our third-party vendors (“Service Providers”) use Personal Data to: (i) provide and maintain the Platform, (ii) comply with applicable laws, and (iii) promote our products, systems, and tools. Examples of how we may use Personal Data include:
To authenticate a user’s identity;
To customize the features that we make available to you;
To respond to inquiries, send service notices and provide customer support;
To communicate regarding a payment, and provide related customer service;
For regulatory purposes and compliance with industry standards;
To send communications about new features and products;
To determine if a student is under 13 for the purposes of COPPA compliance;
To respond to law enforcement requests and as required by applicable law, court order, or governmental regulations.
To evaluate or conduct a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about our Users is among the assets transferred.
We use other Device Data to improve the product, deliver a consistent and enjoyable experience, debug, provide customer support, and for aggregate analysis.
We use Usage Data to test and improve our products, services, projects and the Platform. We also use de-identified aggregate Usage Data to develop new products, improve or modify our Platform, conduct analysis and develop business intelligence that enable us to operate, protect, make informed decisions, and report on the performance of, our business.
Cookies and similar technologies
Here are some of the ways that we and our Service Providers use these technologies: to log you into the Platform, save your preferences, personalize your experience, and protect against abuse. You may set your browser to reject cookies; however, this may affect some functions of the Platform.
As a general matter, we consciously avoid Personal, Device and Usage Data in cookies and local storage. While we use these technologies to help identify user sessions, the information contained is only meaningful to the Platform itself.
IV. HOW WE SHARE DATA
We do not disclose, share, rent, or sell any User Information to any third parties for commercial uses, such as targeted advertising. We only disclose or share User Information with bona fide Service Providers for purposes related to or arising out of the ordinary course of creation, development, operation, service, and maintenance of the Platform. Such bona fide Service Providers shall only use such User Information for such purposes and not to sell such User Information under any circumstances.
Service Providers who do help us operate our Platform must adhere to privacy and security obligations in a manner consistent with the Company’s policies and practices. Below is a list of our Service Providers with whom we may share User Information and the services they generally provide.
Purpose of data sharing
Cloud hosting and data warehousing
Tracking and reporting
Survey response collection and feature usage research
Sales tax calculation
In addition to the Service Providers just listed, we also use vendors to process payment for the Platform such as Stripe, PayPal and Apple. Those vendors use and process your information in accordance with their own terms and privacy policies.
V. EDUCATOR USERS AND STUDENT INFORMATION
If you are a Student using the Platform in connection with an Educator or School, your School and Educator may have the ability to disable your account. Additionally, Educators may create Student accounts on behalf of Students and in so doing, provide INVENTORCLOUD with the Student Information. If you are an Educator, you agree that you will obtain and maintain all required consents from Student Users or their parents or legal guardians (when such Students are under the age of 13 or the age of consent in the state in which the Student resides) to allow: (i) your access, monitoring, use, editing, deleting, and disclosure of their Student Information and our providing you with the ability to do so, and (ii) your Student’s use of the Platform.
If you are a Student using the Platform in connection with a School and do not believe that you, your parent or your legal guardian has provided consent for the School or applicable Educator Users to access, monitor, use, edit, delete, or disclose data related to your Usage Data and Personal Data, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
INVENTORCLOUD secures User Information both in transit and at rest via encryption. We use modern cryptographic algorithms like AES256 with strict user access control and multi-factor authentication.
VII. DATA RETENTION
We retain User Information to provide the Platform to you and our other Users and to provide a useful user experience. However, we do not retain User Information longer than is necessary to do so. There may be some instances where we retain non-personal data in a depersonalized or aggregated form.
Following the termination of an agreement we may have with a School, a School may request that we delete and/or de-identify certain Personal Data related to its Students and Educators, and we will do so, unless the School or applicable regulations require the retention of such data, in which case the records shall be de-identified upon the expiration of the retention period.
Please note that the requested deletion will be as comprehensive as possible but is always subject to issues outside of our control, including applicable regulations and laws, your actions and the actions of third parties. We may also need to retain a copy of certain information for legal compliance purposes, including, without limitation, to avoid identity theft or fraud.
VII. VIEWING AND CORRECTING INFORMATION
IX. USERS UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE
In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), we require parental consent for students under the age of 13 who wish to use INVENTORCLOUD (“Child Users”). INVENTORCLOUD does not knowingly permit Child Users to register directly for our Platform without the consent of a Parent (defined below) or the Child User’s school on behalf of a Parent. If INVENTORCLOUD learns that Personal Data of a Child User has been collected on the Platform without parental consent, then INVENTORCLOUD will take appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or legal guardian (“Parent”) and discover that your child under the age of 13 has an account with the Platform without your consent, please alert us at email@example.com.
There are two acceptable ways for Child Users to sign up for the Platform:
When a Child User registers for our Platform, we ask for a credit card as payment and for verification of parental or guardian consent to collect User Information of a Child User.
When the Child User is enrolled at a School, we permit the School to provide the requisite consent for INVENTORCLOUD to collect User Information of a Child User for this purpose, in lieu of parental consent. Schools may provide a Child User with an account by providing the Child User with an account code. When Schools provide access to a Child User in this manner, we do not request additional consent from the Parent, as we require Schools to gather those consents or to consent on behalf of the Child User.
Parents who provide consent under a Child User’s self-registration may review their child’s Personal Data on INVENTORCLOUD, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of their child’s information by INVENTORCLOUD by revoking their consent. Parents seeking to revoke their consent, review their child’s information, and request a deletion of their child’s Personal Data should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
