OUR POLICIES CONCERNING CHILDREN
The Services are not intentionally directed to children under the age of 13 years and and we rely on the School to provide notice and
obtain parental consent and any other required authorizations for all student information we collect. Please contact us at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe we have inadvertently collected personal information of a child under 13 without proper

parties for any purpose.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT WHEN YOU USE THE SERVICE
We define “Personal Information” as information that identifies you or can be used to contact you. Like most websites and online
services, certain information is automatically collected when you use our Services, visit our Site, read our emails, or otherwise
communicate with us. For example, information about your device and its software, such as your IP address, browser type, Internet
service provider, platform type, device type, operating system, date and time stamp, a unique ID that allows us to identify your
browser, mobile device or your account, and other similar information. Personal Information can include things like, but not
exclusively, your name, e-mail address, physical address, telephone number, etc. Since the use of Personal Information is necessary
to improving the quality of our Services, we collect that information in a variety of ways:
Information Provided by Schools. When Schools register for our Services, they provide certain information about the School, Parents, and students, such as Parent’s name, email address and phone number, student ID, classroom and other information maintained in the School’s information systems such as bus route number, teacher name, and information about student absences. We also receive information from Schools and Parents when they send us a message, for example by email or by submitting a help request through the Site. The School may also provide us information about Educational Professionals such as name, email address and cell phone number to take advantage of some of our Services.
Information from You: When you register for our Services you provide certain information such as School name, student’s name, point of contact name, physical address, email address and phone number. In addition, to use the Services you are required to provide your student’s name and various pick-up details. Your location may also be collected. If you should discover incorrect information while using our Services, please contact us at email@example.com and we will assist in correcting the information.
Viral Components: If you refer another user to us, we may collect and retain information you provide to us such as the name and e-mail address of the referred individual.
Details of transactions you carry out through the Service.
Details of interaction within the Service, including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, web logs and other communication data.
We and your School may also place advertisements on the Site. We collect information related to these advertisements such as who clicks on them, the School they are affiliated with and the time and date the advertisement was clicked.
Through the course of providing Services, we may have access to personally identifiable information about students (“Student Data”) that is provided by you. We have access to Student Data only as requested by the School and Parents and only for the purposes of performing Services on the School’s behalf. The type of Student Data we collect will depend on how the School uses the Services.
In addition to Personal Information, we collect a variety of data that could not be used to identify or contact you. Data are used to enhance the quality of our Services and other services. Here are some of the forms of non-personal information we collect:
Interaction Information: We collect and retain information relating to your interaction with our Services. For example, we may monitor the length of time you use the application(s), the number and type of activities you participate in during a particular session, etc.
General Use Information: We also collect general information about your interaction with our Services such as your browser type, referring and exit URLs (if applicable), click, domain names, pages viewed, the amount of time spent viewing a particular Site page, the time of such activities, etc.
Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your viewing preferences).
