“We” are Mind InFormation, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, and our contact information is located at the end of this Policy. This Policy describes the type of information we may collect or that may be provided when either a student (“Student”) or the parent or legal guardian of a Student (“Parent”) uses our Lexercise for Organizations integrated instructional platform (the “Platform”) via an account maintained with one of our school, school district or other organizational subscribers to Platform (an “Organization”), as well as our policies and practices for using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that Student and Parent information.
This Policy applies to any information that we collect on the Platform, including any information in any submitted web forms, emails, posts, texts and other electronic messages between the user and the Platform and any information about the user transferred to the Platform from other websites or mobile or desktop applications. This Policy does not apply to any other information that we collect by any means.
We have applied to be a signatory to the Student Privacy Pledge and will handle all Student Personal Information collected by or provided to us through the Platform consistent with our pledge. Please visit https://studentprivacypledge.org/privacy-pledge/ for more information and a list of our specific pledge commitments.
Information collected or provided to us through our Platform falls into one of two categories:
For the purposes of this Policy, only information listed in the first category above is considered to be the “Personal Information” of the user.
We may collect the following information about Parents through the Platform:
Parents, Students, a Student’s teachers or other Organization officials provide this information directly to us by filling in and submitting online forms (e.g., when registering a Parent to use the Platform) or a Parent may provide this information directly to us when a Parent uses and interacts with the other tools and features provided to Parents via the Platform.
We may collect the following information about Students through the Platform:
Parents, Students, a Student’s teachers or other Organization officials provide this information directly to us by filling in and submitting online forms (e.g., when registering a Student to use the Platform) or a Student may provide this information directly to us when a Student uses and interacts with the other tools and features provided to Students via the Platform.
When a user accesses, uses and navigates through the Platform, the Platform may use certain technologies (described below) to collect automatically the following information:
We use the following technologies for automatic information collection:
We use information that we collect about Parents and Students, including any Personal Information, to:
The traffic data, usage details, and “persistent identifiers” we collect help us to improve the Platform and to deliver a better and more personalized experience by enabling us to:
We may disclose Personal Information that we collect or that is provided to us:
The Platform is not designed to permit Parents or Students to disclose to any other third parties or to make publicly available in any form (e.g., in a public forum or message board) any Personal Information about themselves.
We DO NOT use Parents’ or Students’ Personal Information collected by or provided to us through the Platform for our own or any third party’s marketing or advertising purposes. We also DO NOT sell or otherwise disclose such information to any third parties for such third parties’ use in marketing or advertising purposes.
We may convert or combine information about Parents and Students into de-identified or aggregated data that does not disclose any of the Personal Information of any Parent or Student. We may use or disclose any such de-identified or aggregated data for any purpose permitted by our contract with the Organization responsible for the Student (e.g., the Student’s school). For example:
On the Platform, we do not currently collect Personal Information about a user’s online activities over time and across third-party sites for tracking purposes, and we do not currently allow third parties to collect Personal Information that could be used by them to analyze and store information about the user’s online activities over time and across third-party sites for tracking purposes. Therefore, the Platform DOES NOT currently respond to any “Do Not Track” signals from a user’s computer or mobile device, and if a user’s computer or mobile device sends a “Do Not Track” signal to the Platform, the Platform WILL NOT treat that user differently from users who do not send such signals.
With respect to the Personal Information that we have collected or that has been provided to us, the Organization responsible for the Student (e.g., the Student’s school) has the right to:
Only appropriately-authorized officials of the Organization may review, change, refuse our further use or collection of, or request the deletion of the Personal Information of Parents or Students. Parents and Students should direct any such inquiries and requests directly to the teacher or other official of the Organization responsible for the Student (e.g., the Student’s school).
Given that our access to certain Personal Information is essential to the proper functioning of the Platform, we cannot delete certain Personal Information about a Parent or Student without also deleting the Parent’s or Student’s user account and terminating such individual’s access to the Platform. We will notify the Organization at the time it requests a deletion of Personal Information whether such deletion will result in our termination of an individual’s account. We may also refuse to accommodate a request to change collected information if we reasonably believe that the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users of our Platform that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an e-mail to email@example.com. Please note that we do not currently make disclosures of Personal Information to third parties for direct marketing purposes.
The Platform is hosted in the United States and is provided from the United States. It is possible that certain information will be stored on servers in multiple other countries on the “cloud” or other similar distributed hosting platforms. If a user accesses the Platform from the European Union, Asia or any other region with laws governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from United States laws, the user is expressly and knowingly consenting to the transfer of the user’s Personal Information from the user’s home country to the United States and other jurisdictions as indicated above, and to our use of such Personal Information in accordance with this Policy.
We have established and will maintain reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of Personal Information collected pursuant to this Policy and to secure Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. For example, all information provided to us is stored on our servers behind firewalls and certain Personal Information will be encrypted using secure socket layer (SSL) technology. We will also take reasonable steps to disclose Personal Information only to service providers and other third parties who are capable of maintaining the confidentiality, security and integrity of such Personal Information, and who provide assurances that they will maintain the Personal Information in such a manner.
The safety and security of your information also depends on each user. When we have given a Parent or Student a password for access to certain parts of our Platform, the Parent or Student is responsible for keeping this password confidential. Users must not share their passwords with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is not completely secure. Although we have implemented security measures that we think are adequate, we cannot guarantee the security of Personal Information transmitted to our Platform. Any transmission of Personal Information is at the user’s own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Platform.
We will retain Personal Information which we collect or which is provided to us about Parents and Students for only as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the information was collected, after which we will anonymize any such Personal Information.
We post any changes we make to our Policy on this page. If we plan to make material changes to how we treat our users’ Personal Information, we will provide advance notice to the appropriately-authorized officials of the Organization responsible for the Student (e.g., the Student’s school) and allow the Organization certain choices before the Personal Information is used in any manner inconsistent with the terms under which it was initially provided. The date the Policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page.
The Platform is operated by Mind InFormation, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company with its headquarters in North Carolina. To ask questions or comment about this Policy and our privacy practices, contact us using the information at this link: https://www.lexercise.com/contact-us.
