When TeachTown is used by an Educational Institution or Educator or otherwise for an educational purpose, TeachTown may collect or have access to Student Data. “Student Data” is personal information that is directly related to an identifiable Student that is maintained by an Educational Institution or related entity or organization, or by us on behalf of such entity. Student Data may include “educational records” as defined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), 20 U.S.C. § 1232(g).
TeachTown agrees to treat Student Data as confidential and not to share it with third parties other than as described in this Agreement and in our Privacy Notice.
TeachTown shall collect and process Student Data as a School Official with a legitimate educational interest pursuant the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), under the direction and control of the Educational Institution. As between TeachTown and an Educational Institution that enters into this Agreement with us, the Educational Institution owns all right, title and interest to all Student Data processed by TeachTown its behalf, and TeachTown does not own, control or license such Student Data, except so as to provide the Service and as described in the Agreement.
We may access and collect Student Data manually, such as when an Educator or other individual authorized to access an Educational Institution’s account enters such Student Data through the Educational Institution’s login and dashboard; or automatically, if the Educational Institution chooses to integrate its Student Information System (“SIS”) with the Service. We also collect, receive and generate Student Data in connection with your authorized use of the Service. If you are an Educational Institution or Educator, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to provide Student Data to TeachTown and authorize TeachTown to collect Student Data for the purpose of providing the Service, and that you have provided appropriate disclosures to the parents or legal guardian regarding your sharing of such personal information with TeachTown.
TeachTown and the Educational Institutions, Educators and Parents each agree to uphold their responsibilities under laws governing personal information and Student Data, including, without limitation, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (“PPRA”), and the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (“COPPA”) and any and all applicable state laws. We rely on Educational Institutions and Educators to obtain and provide appropriate consent and disclosures, if necessary, for TeachTown to collect any Student Data, including the collection of Student Data directly from Students under thirteen (13) years of age, as permitted under COPPA. We recommend that you provide a copy of the Privacy Notice to Parents.
You are required to comply with this Agreement and all regulations and laws governing the privacy of children and children’s personal information in your territory. You represent and warrant that you are in compliance with all applicable data protection laws governing the protection of personal information and the sharing of student education records.
By submitting or providing us access to Student Data, you agree that TeachTown may use the Student Data solely for the purposes of (i) providing the Service, (ii) maintaining, supporting, evaluating, diagnosing, improving and developing the Service (including without limitation provision and use of such personal information to train, develop and improve its machine learning and other artificial intelligence algorithms and other models), (iii) enforcing our rights under this Agreement, (iv) using aggregated Student Data for research purposes and (v) as permitted with the Educational Institution’s, Educator’s or Parent’s consent. For clarity and without limitation, we may use Student Data for adaptive learning purposes or customized student learning and to provide recommendation engines to recommend content or services relating to school purposes or other educational or employment purposes, provided such recommendation is not determined in whole or in part by payment or other consideration from a third party.
TeachTown is prohibited from using Student Data to (a) direct targeted online advertising to Students; (b) develop a profile of a Student, Parent or other individual, other than for the purpose of providing educational services or as authorized by an Educational Institution, Educator or Parent; or (c) for any commercial purpose unless authorized by an Educational Institution, Educator or Parent or permitted by applicable law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that TeachTown may provide customized content, advertising and commercial messaging to Users from time to time, provided that such advertisements shall not be based upon Student Data relating to individually identifiable Students, unless we have received consent from the Educational Institution, Educator or Parent to have Student Data used for such purposes and to the extent such data use is permitted by applicable law.
You agree that we may collect and, both during and after the term of our agreement, use De-Identified Information for the purposes of development, research and improvement of our Service and other educational sites, services and applications or technologies or as any other member of the public would be able to use De-Identified Information pursuant to FERPA, and that we may share such De-Identified Information with our vendors or other third-parties for such purposes. “De-identified Information” refers to data from which any direct and indirect identifiers have been removed or obscured in a way that minimizes the risk of disclosure of the identity of the individual. We agree not to attempt to re-identify De-Identified Information, and to contractually prohibit any third party to whom it is disclosed from doing so.
You acknowledge and agree that TeachTown may provide access to Student Data to our employees, affiliates and to certain third-party service providers which have a legitimate need to access such information in order to provide their services to us. We and our employees, affiliates, service providers or agents involved in the handling, transmittal, and processing of Student Data will be required to maintain the confidentiality of such data.
TeachTown may provide users the ability to use and access third-party services through the TeachTown Service, and to share data, including Student Data, with third parties through the Service. You consent to allow us to provide access to Student Data to third parties through the Service as directed by an authorized User. You acknowledge that we are not responsible for the data practices of third parties with whom you elect to share Student Data through the Service, and that, as between us, you are solely responsible for the third-party content and the consequences of providing or transmitting Student Data to such third parties, or authorizing those third parties to access Student Data through the Service.
Educational Institutions, Educators or Parents may request that we delete or retrieve Student Data in our possession at any time by providing such a request in writing. We shall comply with such request within thirty (30) days; provided that we are not required to destroy any electronic copy of Student Data that is retained pursuant to TeachTown’s standard electronic backup and archival procedures if (a) personnel other than information technology (“IT”) personnel do not have access to such retained copies and (b) IT personnel have access to such copies only as reasonably necessary for the performance of their IT duties (e.g., for the purposes of system recovery). We also are not required to delete data that has been de-identified such that it can no longer be used to identify an individual. A User seeking to modify, correct or delete personal information about a Student without the requisite admin privileges over the Student Data will be instructed to contact the Educational Institution, Educator or Parent (as applicable) to discuss data deletion or modification. We do not delete or de-identify any Student Data associated with an active Educational Institution contract except at the direction of the Educational Institution. The Educational Institution is responsible for maintaining current student rosters and removing Student Data which the Educational Institution no longer needs for an educational purpose through the Service itself, if applicable, or by submitting a deletion request. We will retain Student Data for a period of two years after termination of the contract to continue to provide the Educational Institution access to its records and aggregate reports, after which the Student Data will be deleted and/or de-identified, unless we receive a deletion request prior to that date.
We will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide at least thirty (30) days’ notice of any change that may involve collecting, using, storing or sharing Student Data in a materially different way than was disclosed to you previously, so that you have sufficient time to evaluate the change in practice. If you do not choose to accept the changes, you may opt-out by deleting your account before the changes take effect. You may request previous versions of this Agreement by contacting us at email@example.com.
We care about the privacy of our Users. You understand that by using the Service you acknowledge that TeachTown will collect, use and disclose your personally identifiable information as set forth in our Privacy Notice.
TeachTown cares about the integrity and security of your personal information. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.
We have implemented administrative, physical and technical safeguards designed to secure the Student Data in our possession and control from unauthorized access, disclosure and use. If an unauthorized party gains access to or has been disclosed Student Data (a “Security Event”), that we have collected or received through the Service under this Agreement, we will promptly notify the Education Institution. If, due to a Security Event which is caused by the acts or omissions of TeachTown or its agents, a notification to an individual, organization or government agency is required under applicable privacy laws, the Education Institution shall be responsible for the timing, content, and method of any such legally-required notice and compliance with such laws and TeachTown shall indemnify the Education Institution for reasonable costs related to legally-required notifications. With respect to any Security Event which is not caused by the acts or omissions of TeachTown or its agents, TeachTown shall reasonably cooperate with Education Institution’s investigation of the Security Event, upon request at Education Institution ‘s reasonable expense, but TeachTown shall not indemnify an Education Institution for costs associated with the Security Event.
The Service may contain links to third-party materials that are not owned or controlled by TeachTown. TeachTown does not endorse or assume any responsibility for any such third-party sites, information, materials, products or services. If you access a third-party website or service from the Service or share your User Content on or through any third-party website or service, you do so at your own risk, and you understand that this Agreement and TeachTown’s Privacy Notice do not apply to your use of such sites. You expressly relieve TeachTown from any and all liability arising from your use of any third-party website, service or content, including without limitation User Content submitted by other Users.
