Your California Privacy Rights
California residents (“Consumer(s)”) have certain rights with respect to their personal information, as described in more detail in the CCPA and as summarized below. Each Consumer has:
- The right to know what of their personal information that we collect, use, share or sell.
- The right to delete their personal information that we hold.
- The right to opt-out of our sale of their personal information. Consumers under the age of 16 must provide us with opt-in consent before we can sell their personal information and Consumers under the age of 13 must have their parent or guardian provide opt-in consent before we can sell their personal information.
- The right to non-discrimination in terms of price or service when they exercise a privacy right under the CCPA.
We represent to our education platform institutions and their Students and Guardians that We Do NOT, NEVER HAVE, and NEVER WILL Sell Your Personal Information.
To Exercise Your Rights:
Under our agreements with our institutions and their students in connection with our obligations under various laws such as FERPA, we have certain obligations to utilize the Consumers personal information that the School has chosen to input into our systems and/or software to satisfy such obligations. As such, to exercise your rights under CCPA as described below, please contact your educational institution. Should they need our assistance in facilitating your request, we will provide them with the appropriate support.
Right to Know and Access Personal Information: Every Student or Guardian may access personal information we maintain about them by asking their Institution to provide them with such personal information. We reserve the right to verify a Student’s or Guardian’s identity with respect to any right to know request.
Deletion of Personal Information: Every Student or Guardian may request that we delete some or all of their personal information that we maintain about them by (i) asking their Institution to delete such personal information or (ii) asking their Institution to have us delete such personal information. We may not fulfill some or all of a Student’s or Guardian’s request to delete certain of their personal information to the extent permitted under the CCPA, related to certain exemptions for educational entities. For that Student’s or Guardian’s personal information that we are required to delete according to the CCPA, we can do so under any of the three following methods – (1) permanently and completely erasing the personal information on our existing systems with the exception of archived or back-up systems, (2) de-identifying the personal information or (3) aggregating the personal information. We will inform Students or Guardians of the deleting method that we have chosen. We reserve the right to verify a Student’s or Guardian’s identity with respect to any deletion request. Depending on the scope of your deletion request, we may refrain from granting your request, as permitted by applicable law.
Non-Discrimination: We will not discriminate against you, in terms of price or services that we offer.
Consumers may use an authorized agent on their behalf to exercise a privacy right discussed above. If you are an authorized agent acting on behalf of a Consumer to communicate with us or to exercise a privacy right discussed above, you must be able to demonstrate that you have the requisite authorization to act on behalf of the Consumer and have sufficient access to their laptop, desktop, or mobile device to exercise these rights digitally. If you are an authorized agent trying to exercise rights on behalf of a Consumer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with supporting verification information, which includes a valid Power of Attorney in the State of California, proof that you have access to the Consumer’s interface, and proof of your own identify.
Should you have any questions regarding your CCPA rights with respect to your personal information that we collect, use or share, please contact your education institution.
