PRIVACY POLICY

Last updated: Aug 8, 2018

Privacy Policy Summary

We gather personal information This privacy policy is designed to tell you about the types of information that we may collect relating to our adult and children users (including “Personally Identifiable Information”, PII, as defined under applicable law). It also tells you how, when, and why our company will use the information, and the situations when we may share personal information.
From children, we collect only the personal information that is reasonably necessary to run the site. While the collection of certain information is reasonably necessary for the delivery of our educational services, we will not collect or disclose more personal information than is reasonably necessary to provide our educational services. Children’s participation in our programs is not conditional on collection of any more information than is reasonably necessary to accomplish our educational purposes. We do not create or keep student profiles for non-educational purposes. Federal law (COPPA) requires our compliance with this provision. For more information, see our COPPA Notice.
We will seek your consent In general, we will seek consent whenever any PII is sought with respect to you or your child. In some cases, a school may act in loco parentis to provide consent for Student Users under the age of 13. In these cases, we assume that the school has provided notice to parents and obtained their consent. You can learn more about this in our COPPA Notice. We will notify you and seek your consent again if we materially change:

  • The kinds of information we collect
  • How we use that information and/or
  • If we offer the information to new or different third parties
You have the right to review your personal information You have the right to review your personal information and personal information collected from and/or about your child. You can do this:
  • through your account
  • by contacting a Student User's teacher, who has full oversight of the personal information submitted by the student in their class, or
  • by emailing [email protected] (once we verify your identity, we will be grant you access to review, update, and/or delete their data)
We are careful when contracting with Third Parties We only contract and share student data with third parties that are consistent with our own policies. If we ever contract with a future company we will make sure they are consistent with our policies, otherwise we will seek your consent again before sharing User information.
We only keep data for as long as we need it We do not retain personal information for longer than necessary to deliver services or for school purposes. If you would like your data deleted before this point, you can delete your account. Once an account is deleted we take all available measures to remove and/or de-identify all personal information.
We strive to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of personal information We will take reasonable care to safeguard the confidentiality, security, and integrity of personal information. For example, we store information on password-secure servers, we limit the disclosure of relevant passwords to essential personnel only, and we use encryption measures.
We do not advertise to students We do not collect behavioral information from Users to provide targeted advertising and we do not advertise to Student Users.

About the information that we collect

What is Personally Identifiable Information?

This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. We consider Personally Identifiable Information, PII, to be:

What Personally Identifiable Information do we collect and why?

When you visit the site or download our app from an app store, you may be providing us with persistent identifiers in the form of an IP address or unique device identifier. Your IP address can be used to determine your geolocation to the level of your city or town. We only use this information to improve our educational services. You may be able to prevent this information from being shared by changing the settings on your device. We respect this and you will still be able to use the site without experiencing changes in the quality of service. If you decide to register for this site we ask you to provide us with:

If you submit work to the site during an educational activity, you may provide us with your image in the form of a photograph or other PII included in the work. You can prevent us from collecting this information by checking your work before submitting it. Teacher Users should remind Student Users of the importance of checking their work before submitting it.

Information from Integrated Services like Google or Clever

If you decide to register through or otherwise grant access to a third-party integrated service (what we call an “Integrated Service”), such as Google, Floop may also collect PII. You may also have the option of sharing additional information with us through an Integrated Service. If you choose to provide such information, during registration or otherwise, you are giving Floop the permission to use, share, and store it in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Information about your use of our site and other

User-provided Information We may collect usage information about your use of certain features on our site, such as the length of work sample and comment submissions, the feedback scores students have received, and the academic concepts present in the assignments teachers create. This enables us to better tailor educational experiences that are most appropriate for you and your students and we do not use it for any purposes outside of the operation of this service.

Information obtained from other Users

We make available certain features on our site that allow other Users to provide us information about you. This information may include PII. Generally, this occurs when parents or teachers provide information relating to a Student User. For example, a parent may register an account for their child and provide us with certain information, such as the child’s first and last name. It may also happen if a Student User submits a work sample or feedback containing information about another student. If you are a Teacher User, and you use our referral service to tell another teacher about our Services, we will ask you for that teacher’s name and email address. We use and protect this information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Information from Other Sources

In certain situations, we may obtain information, including PII, from third parties or sources other than our site. For example, if you apply for a job with Floop Edu, Inc. via an online recruiting site, we will obtain the information you provide in your application for that purpose. If we combine or associate information from other sources with PII that we collect through our site, we will treat the combined information as PII in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Advertising

We do not collect behavioral information from Users to provide targeted advertising and we do not advertise to Student Users.

When we share information and when we do not

We do not sell, trade, or rent PII to others.

On occasion, we may provide some of our services through contractual arrangements with affiliates, services providers, partners and other third parties. For example, we must release your credit card information to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment for products and services purchased on this site. We only share data with third parties that are consistent with our policies. We will only contract with future companies that are consistent with our policies, otherwise we will seek your consent again before sharing User information.

Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide PII to the appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose PII upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation.We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.

Keeping information correct and up-to-date

We believe you should have the ability to access and edit the PII that you have provided to us. You may change any of your PII in your account online at any time by linking to your account in accordance with instructions posted elsewhere on this site.

Keeping your information secure

They receive the information needed to verify and authorize your credit card or other payment information and to process and ship your order. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your PII, you acknowledge that:
