A "School" refers to a school district or other educational organization.
"Personal Information" means information that, alone or when in combination with other information, may be used to readily identify, contact, or locate an individual, such as: name, address, phone number, school ID number, or email address, as well as information that our Services might associate with such information.
Personal Information does not include information that cannot readily be used to identify specific individuals, such as aggregated survey responses or research data sets that have had identifying information removed.
"Education Information" means information gathered from students, parents, teachers, and staff, and information provided to us by Schools. Education Information may include Personal Information.
How we gather information
Information from Students, Parents, Teachers, and Staff. We may gather information directly from students, parents, teachers, and staff through their use of the Site. That information may include or be closely tied to Personal Information if it is necessarily part of the lesson plans developed through the Site.
Customer Support. We may receive Personal Information through communications to our customer support team. This information may help us provide faster and more effective support of the Site.
Automated Technologies. We may gather and store information that is generated automatically during user interactions with our websites or emails we send. This information may include IP addresses and information stored in cookies (small text files placed in visitors' computer browsers) and similar technologies. We use information gathered in this way to enhance our users' experiences - for example, to remember when users are already logged in to the Site so they do not need to log in again. Most browsers have an option to block or delete cookies, though this may affect the use of the Site.
Children's Information. We do not gather Personal Information from children under the age of 13, as defined by applicable law, unless we believe we have legal permission to do so, as indicated by Schools acting on behalf of parents or guardians. We require our Schools to obtain any necessary parental consent or provide any required disclosures to parents or guardians. We will gather information from students directly only as requested by a School and only for the purposes of providing access to the Site. If you believe we have unknowingly gathered a child's information without the appropriate consent, please contact us immediately at violations[at]symbaloo.com
User Accounts. Some users access the Site through user accounts. We may collect and use Personal Information, such as email addresses or usernames, to create and differentiate any user accounts used to access the Site.
How we use education information
To Develop Lesson Plans. This information may include email addresses for students, teachers, and staff members (and sometimes snail mail addresses where necessary to make sure everyone can participate); class roster information; and student demographic information. We use this information in order to configure lesson plans correctly and to administer them efficiently and accurately.
For Research and Development. We may use Education Information, including Personal Information, for research and development purposes as we try to share best practices with the education community and improve the lesson plan development tools we offer through the Site. These research and development purposes could include testing new tools to include in reports, performing validity studies, developing new product features, and making other usability improvements.
How we share information
We share information gathered from students, teachers, parents, and staff. At a School's request, we can export this information from our system to the School, or make reasonable efforts to destroy or otherwise render the information inaccessible.
We may also be required to disclose, access, and/or preserve information in order to comply with law enforcement requests and legal process. We may also do so to protect users', our, or others' rights, property, or safety.
When necessary, we share limited information with other organizations so that they can help us provide access to and use of the Site.
How we protect information
Symbaloo is committed to protecting the information we gather. We have implemented administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to protect information stored in our servers. We use security safeguards such as physical access controls to buildings and files, data encryption, and firewalls to help prevent unauthorized access to the information we maintain. Despite this, neither the Internet nor any data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. In the unlikely event of a data breach we will notify all affected Schools and make a reasonable effort to notify all affected users.
If you would like to update or correct any information provided to us through the use of our Services, please send an email to feedbackUS[at]symbaloo.com
Please ask! Don't hesitate to email us at feedbackUS[at]symbaloo.com with any questions.
Changes to this policy
New Uses of Personal Information. If our practices regarding previously gathered Personal Information change in a way that would be materially different, we will make reasonable efforts to provide notice of any such changes.
