Users may also post text, photos, homework, calendar entries, School events, grades, assignments, and other files or materials to the Website ("User Submissions"), including to message boards or chat areas; however, the School has control over who can post and view User Submissions. User Submissions may contain PII.
We may collect and retain additional information in certain situations, for example, if a User submits to us a request for information or a service. Users also may be requested to provide information, which may or may not include PII, through surveys or feedback forms.
We require parental consent in the form of a signed parental consent form before the School will gives access to any student User from whom information will be collected. Parental consent is received by the School, and the School is responsible for providing parent Users access to their child's profile so that the parent User may review, modify, or delete any Child Information contained in the profile by logging into their child's account on the Website.The School is responsible for confirming receipt of valid parental consent forms for each child before allowing the child to access the Website.
Parents always have the right to refuse further collection, use and/or disclosure of the Child Information by giving notice to the School. Parents also have the option to agree to the collection and use of their child's personal information without agreeing to the disclosure of the information to third parties by notifying the school; however, due to the nature of the Website, if parents do not consent to disclosure, their child will not have access to the Website. In any case, we may provide any collected information to third parties who use it solely to provide support for our internal operations.
PII and User Submissions may be used to provide Users with a way to communicate and receive information and communications about their School (such as schedules and announcements) and students (such as grades, homework, parental permissions, and club membership). (See the SchoolSpeak Website for further information regarding the functionality of the Website). PII and User Submissions may be used by SchoolSpeak to improve and maintain the Website and related services. PII and User Submissions may be monitored by the School to ensure compliance with School policies and rules. We do not link NII and PII.
NII may be used anonymously for marketing or administrative purposes, to monitor system performance, to fix technical problems with the Website, and may be disclosed to third parties to assist in these efforts.
When Users send email or other communication using the Website, we may retain those communications in order to process inquiries, respond to requests and improve our services. Users specifically agree that SchoolSpeak and the School reserve the right to use User email addresses to send service, account, privacy and School related emails to Users. Users cannot opt-out of these communications unless they deactivate their account. We or the School may communicate with Users via email or phone to provide requested services. The School determines which Users can send email through the Website, which allows the selected Users to send email to other Users email addresses.
The School may decide to assign to Users varying viewing privileges. Based upon such designations, Users may have access to some or all School specific PII, including Child Information, grades, homework assignments, contact information, age, etc. The School decides who has access to what PII and User Submissions. School administrators and teacher may access, delete, or modify its student Users' PII. Once User Submissions are posted on the Website (for example, on message boards or chat rooms), they may accessible to various Users.
In the event SchoolSpeak is part of a merger, acquisition, asset sale, or bankruptcy, all collected information may be transferred to a third party. We will provide a prominent notice on our Website before such transfer occurs, if allowed by law.
We take security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of collected information. The School assigns all Users access levels depending on their roles, i.e. teachers, students, administration, and parents. This is intended to ensure that a User only views the information that the User is allowed to according to rules set by the School. Access to the Website is protected by requiring a User ID and password. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information managed by the Website.
