Data Tool Services and Disclosures

The following subsections (a) to (e) apply if and only if You are purchasing Our “Data Tool Services”:

(a) PII

You and the Company acknowledge that transmissions from the Data Tool Services may contain highly sensitive, personal information, including without limitation Personally Identifiable Information and other protected information (“Protected Information” or “PII”), and You shall ensure that all such Protected Information is secured from transmission or disclosure to unauthorized recipients.  You shall be solely responsible for establishing commercially reasonable safeguards to prevent the transmission or disclosure of Protected Information to unauthorized recipients.  In addition, You shall be solely responsible for the determination of the identities of authorized recipients and unauthorized recipients.  You agree to handle the data in accordance with all applicable federal, state, or local laws or regulations, and that You will monitor employees and contractors using the Data Tool Services to ensure they abide by these Terms of Service.


You represent and warrant that You are not a health care provider, health plan, or health care clearinghouse (collectively, a “covered entity”) as those terms are defined under the federal Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”).  You further represent and warrant that You are not a business associate as that term is defined under HIPAA.  You further agree to indemnify and hold the Company and its officers, members, agents and employees harmless from any and all claims and demands (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) made by You or any third party due to or arising out of any claim that the Company is a covered entity or business associate, due to Your use of the Data Tool Services.


When providing the Data Tool Services, both You and the Company are subject to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”) and to that end agree: (i) both parties are each providing educational services; (ii) each party has a legitimate educational interest in the student education records disclosed under these Terms of Service; and (iii) We agree to be under the direct control of an authorized user of the Data Tool Services with respect to the use and maintenance of information from student education records. Any party, including a school official that receives student education records acknowledges that the student education record is confidential and may use the information only for the purposes for which the disclosure was made hereunder. We may not re-disclose the information to any third party without prior written consent from the student, its parent or legal guardian (“Parent”), or an authorized user of the Data Tool Services. Furthermore, both parties shall work together to share student education records in a manner that best assures the protection of student education records from disclosure.


Both You and the Company acknowledge and agree that users of the Data Tool Services may enter PII of children under the age of thirteen (13), that such information is defined under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule (“COPPA”), including: (i) first and last name; (ii) home or other physical address; (iii) email address; (iv) telephone number; (v) social security number; (vi) persistent identifier; (vii) photograph, video, or audio file which contains a child’s image or voice; and (viii) information collected that is combined with any of the previous information; and all such PII shall be subject to the provisions of COPPA.

Each party represents and warrants that to the extent such party’s own activities that use the Data Tool Services are subject to the provisions of COPPA, such party shall operate in accordance with the applicable terms of COPPA for the duration of the term hereof.

We shall make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that PII remains confidential and secured from transmission or disclosure to unauthorized recipients until such PII is deleted pursuant to the terms herein and Our Privacy Policy.

We shall make no commercial use of PII collected on Your behalf other than for educational purposes and shall use PII solely for Your benefit. We shall provide to You all notices required by COPPA regarding Our practices as they relate to collecting, using, or disclosing PII, as well as notice of any material change to such practices in a timely manner under the law. We shall rely on You to obtain verifiable consent from a Parent of each child under 13 registered in association with You to use the Data Tool Services.

In the event a Parent requests to exercise such Parent’s right to: (i) review; (ii) request deletion of; or (iii) refuse further use or collection of the PII collected from the Parent’s child, You shall relay such request to US without unreasonable delay following Your successful verification that the requester is the child’s Parent.

We shall delete PII collected from children under the age of 13: (i) once such PII is no longer needed to fulfill the purpose of its collection; or (ii) upon verified request by such child’s Parent, and shall utilize commercially reasonable safeguards to protect the PII from unauthorized access or use upon its disposal.

(e) CCPA

To the extent that California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) applies to the processing of any PII by Us pursuant to Your instructions in relation to the Data Tool Services, the following also apply: (i) You have read and understand the provisions and requirements of the CCPA, and shall comply with them; (ii) It is the intent of both You and the Company that the sharing or transferring of PII from You to Us during the course of Our performance of the Data Tool Services does not constitute selling of personal information as that term is defined in the CCPA, because You are not sharing or transferring such data to Us for valuable consideration; and (iii) We will only use personal information for the specific purpose(s) of performing the Data Tool Services and within the direct business relationship with You.


Data Access and Permissions

Storage of Data: In compliance with relevant laws, Student Data will be stored within the United States. If requested by the LEA, the Provider will furnish a list of the locations where Student Data is stored.

Audits: Upon a written request from the LEA with at least ten (10) business days’ notice, and after the execution of a suitable confidentiality agreement, the Provider will permit the LEA to conduct security and privacy audits. These audits will ensure the protection of Student Data or any relevant portions concerning service delivery to the LEA. Audits may occur no more than once a year, or in case of unauthorized access. The Provider will reasonably cooperate with the LEA and any relevant local, state, or federal agency overseeing or having jurisdiction in connection with audits or investigations related to the Provider and/or service delivery to the LEA and students. Reasonable access to the Provider’s facilities, staff, agents, LEA’s Student Data, and all records related to the Provider, LEA, and service delivery will be provided. Failure to reasonably cooperate will be considered a significant violation of the Data Protection Agreement (DPA).

Data Security: The Provider commits to employing administrative, physical, and technical measures to safeguard Student Data against unauthorized access, disclosure, acquisition, destruction, use, or alteration. The Provider will also comply with all relevant data security laws. In the Standard Schedule of the Data Protection Agreement (DPA), the Provider shall provide contact details of an employee whom the LEA can reach out to in case of any data security concerns or inquiries.

Data Breach: In the event of an unauthorized release, disclosure, or acquisition of Student Data that compromises its security, confidentiality, or integrity, the Provider must promptly notify the LEA within seventy-two (72) hours of confirming the incident, unless such notification would hinder a law enforcement investigation. If law enforcement involvement delays notification, the Provider will inform the LEA as soon as reasonably possible. The Provider will follow the following process:

1. The security breach notification will include, at a minimum, the following information to the extent known by the Provider and as it becomes available:

  i. Contact information of the reporting LEA subject to this section.

  ii. A list of the types of personal information that were or are reasonably believed to have been affected by the breach.

  iii. If possible to determine at the time of the notice, either (1) the date of the breach, (2) the estimated date of the breach, or (3) the date range within which the breach occurred. The notification will also include the date of the notice.

  iv. Information about any delay in notification due to a law enforcement investigation, if possible to determine at the time of the notice.

  v. A general description of the breach incident, if possible to determine at the time of the notice.

2. The Provider agrees to comply with all federal and state requirements related to a data breach involving Student Data, including the necessary responsibilities and procedures for notification and mitigation of any such data breach.

3. The Provider acknowledges and commits to having a written incident response plan that aligns with best practices, industry standards, and federal and state laws for responding to a data breach, security breach, privacy incident, or unauthorized acquisition or use of Student Data, including personally identifiable information. The Provider will provide the LEA, upon request, with a summary of this incident response plan.

4. The LEA will provide notice and information about the breach to the affected students, parents, or guardians.

5. In the event of a breach originating from the LEA’s use of the Service, the Provider will cooperate with the LEA to promptly secure Student Data.

Ownership of Data and Authorized Access

Student Data Ownership by LEA: All Student Data transmitted to the Provider under the Service Agreement is and will continue to be the sole property of and under the full control of the LEA. The Provider acknowledges and agrees that all copies of such Student Data transmitted to the Provider, whether modified, added to, or originating from any source, are bound by the terms of this DPA in the same manner as the original Student Data. Both Parties concur that all rights, including intellectual property rights related to Student Data as outlined in the Service Agreement, will exclusively remain the property of the LEA. Regarding FERPA compliance, the Provider will be regarded as a School Official, subject to the control and direction of the LEA in respect to the use of Student Data, despite the above provisions.

Parent Access: In compliance with applicable laws, the LEA will establish reasonable procedures to allow parents, legal guardians, or eligible students to review Education Records and/or Student Data, correct any inaccuracies, and facilitate the transfer of student-generated content to a personal account, as permitted by the functionality of the services. The Provider will respond in a reasonably timely manner (within forty-five (45) days from the date of the request or as required by state law for the LEA to respond to a parent or student, whichever is sooner) to the LEA’s request for access to Student Data in a student’s records held by the Provider for viewing or necessary corrections. In case a parent or individual contacts the Provider to review any Student Data accessed through the Services, the Provider will direct them to the LEA, which will follow the appropriate procedures regarding the requested information.

Creation of Separate Account: If the Provider stores or maintains Student-Generated Content, the Provider shall, upon the LEA’s request, facilitate the transfer of such content to a separate account that will be created by the student. Alternatively, the Provider will offer a mechanism that enables the LEA to perform the transfer to the student’s separate account.

Law Enforcement Requests: In the event that law enforcement or other government entities (“Requesting Party(ies)”) approach the Provider with a request for Student Data held by the Provider as part of the Services, the Provider will give advance notice to the LEA before making any compelled disclosure to the Requesting Party, except when legally instructed by the Requesting Party not to inform the LEA of the request.

Subprocessors: The Provider will establish written agreements with all Subprocessors responsible for carrying out functions on behalf of the Provider to deliver the Services under the Service Agreement. These agreements will ensure that the Subprocessors commit to protecting Student Data with safeguards at least as stringent as the provisions outlined in this Data Protection Agreement (DPA).

Provider’s Obligations

Privacy Compliance: The Provider will adhere to all relevant federal, state, and local laws, rules, and regulations concerning Student Data privacy and security, subject to any amendments made over time.

Authorized Use: The Student Data shared as per the Service Agreement, which includes persistent unique identifiers, will only be utilized for the specified Services outlined in Exhibit A or as mentioned in the Service Agreement, and any other purposes explicitly authorized under the statutes referenced in this Data Protection Agreement (DPA).

Provider Employee Obligation: The Provider must ensure that all its employees and agents who access Student Data comply with all applicable provisions of this Data Protection Agreement (DPA) regarding the Student Data shared under the Service Agreement. The Provider commits to obtaining and maintaining appropriate confidentiality agreements from each employee or agent with access to Student Data as part of the Service Agreement.

Non-Disclosure Commitment: The Provider acknowledges and agrees not to re-disclose any Student Data or any part thereof, including non-public information, user content, or personally identifiable information contained in the Student Data, unless directed or permitted by the LEA or this Data Protection Agreement (DPA). This restriction on disclosure does not apply to aggregate summaries of De-Identified information, Student Data disclosed in response to a lawfully issued subpoena or other legal process, or to subprocessors providing services on behalf of the Provider under this DPA. Additionally, the Provider will not sell Student Data to any third party.

Usage of De-Identified Data: The Provider commits not to attempt to re-identify de-identified Student Data. De-Identified Data may be utilized by the Provider for purposes allowed under FERPA, as well as the following purposes: (1) aiding the LEA or other governmental agencies in conducting research and studies; (2) research and development of the Provider’s educational sites, services, or applications, and to showcase the effectiveness of the Services; and (3) for adaptive learning and customized student learning purposes.

The Provider’s use of De-Identified Data will continue even after the termination of this Data Protection Agreement (DPA) or any request by the LEA to return or destroy Student Data. With the exception of Subprocessors, the Provider agrees not to transfer de-identified Student Data to any party unless: (a) that party agrees in writing not to attempt re-identification, and (b) prior written notice has been given to the LEA, who must provide prior written consent for such transfer.

Before publishing any document that explicitly or indirectly names the LEA, the Provider shall obtain written approval from the LEA regarding the manner in which de-identified data is presented.

Data Disposition: If the LEA submits a written request, the Provider will either dispose of or facilitate the transfer of Student Data obtained under the Service Agreement within sixty (60) days from the date of the request, following a mutually agreeable schedule and procedure.

Upon the termination of this Data Protection Agreement (DPA) and in the absence of any written request from the LEA, the Provider will dispose of all Student Data after providing the LEA with reasonable prior notice.

The obligation to dispose of Student Data does not apply to Student Data that has been De-Identified or stored in a separate student account.

LEA Responsibilities

Data Provision in Accordance with Laws: The LEA shall furnish Student Data for the purpose of obtaining the Services, ensuring compliance with all relevant federal, state, and local privacy laws, rules, and regulations, subject to any amendments made over time.

Prudent Safeguards: The LEA will employ reasonable precautions to ensure the security of usernames, passwords, and any other methods used to access the services and hosted Student Data.

Notification of Unauthorized Access: The LEA will promptly inform the Provider of any discovered unauthorized access. Additionally, the LEA will provide assistance to the Provider in their efforts to investigate and address any instances of unauthorized access.
