For purposes of this Privacy Statement, references to “You” or “Your” mean (i) you in your individual capacity, (ii) your company, which may be a school or school district, and (iii) students, employees, representatives and agents of Your school or school district that are registered with Istation and that have a valid security identification and password to access and use the Resources (collectively the “Authorized Users”).
“Personally Identifiable Information” generally refers to any data that could potentially identify a specific individual. While You have access to the Resources, Istation may collect the following Personally Identifiable Information about You:
Personally Identifiable Information does not include “De-identified Information,” which is any data or information that cannot be traced back to an individual (except for Identifiable Use Results, as defined above). For example, a table listing the number of students in each grade at a specific school using a particular Resource would not be Personally Identifiable Information.
Istation does not sell Personally Identifiable Information to any affiliated entity of Istation or any third-party, nor does it use such information for any sort of behavioral advertising. However, Istation may use and disclose Personally Identifiable Information for a range of educational, compliance and quality assurance purposes.
Istation may use Personally Identifiable Information for the following purposes:
Istation may disclose Personally Identifiable Information to the following individuals or entities under the following circumstances:
Istation is permitted to use and/or disclose Personally Identifiable Information about You when Istation has Your consent. Istation does not need Your consent to use De-identified Information.
Each school and/or school district is permitted via functionality made available by the Resources to determine what Personally Identifiable Information (if any) is accessible by Authorized Users and to which Authorized Users in particular. In certain circumstances, a school and/or school district may be entitled to permit one or more Authorized Users to change Personally Identifiable Information. Any requests by Students or parents to access and/or change Personally Identifiable Information must be made to the school and/or school district in the first instance, and these entities will maintain a record of all such access and amendment requests and of any actual changes made. To the extent that a student and/or parent makes a direct request to Istation to access and/or amend Personally Identifiable Information, Istation will forward that request to the school and/or school district for response.
Unless required by law to maintain certain information for a longer period of time, Istation retains Personally Identifiable Information only for as long as a student’s school and/or school district maintains a subscription with Istation to one or more of the Resources. Once a subscription to a particular Resource is cancelled or otherwise terminated, Istation will typically retain any Personally Identifiable Information related to that Resource for sixty days after cancellation/termination to allow for temporary lapses in subscription services, at which point that information is destroyed. Personally Identifiable Information may also be destroyed at any time at the request of the school and/or school district.
Istation recognizes its responsibility to protect the Personally Identifiable Information that You entrust to it. Istation uses a variety of secure techniques to protect Your information, including secure servers, firewalls, access limitations on Istation’s servers and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. Additionally, the information that You send Istation via the Website, including student usage information and passwords, may be encrypted, a process used to scramble information and make it extremely difficult to read if wrongly intercepted. Istation utilizes industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of Personally Identifiable Information. All Personally Identifiable Information sent to Istation is encrypted during transmission, such as during login. Once the data reaches Istation’s server, Personally Identifiable Information is stored on a secure database, and access to this information is password protected.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow You to modify security settings so You can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis. At a minimum, Your web browser must allow temporary cookies that are not stored on Your hard disk to log into the Website. Please refer to the “Help” file of Your Internet Browser either to learn how to receive a warning before a cookie is stored.
The Website may contain links to or reference third party websites and resources (collectively “Third Party Sites”). These Third Party Sites are not controlled by Istation and, therefore, are not subject to this Privacy Statement. You should check the privacy policies of these individual Third Party Sites to see how Your personally identifiable information will be utilized by them before providing any personally identifiable information. Please be aware that these Third Party Sites may collect personally identifiable information about You and may also send you “cookies.” Istation is not responsible for the content or practices of any linked Third Party Sites, and Istation provides these links solely for the convenience and information of Istation’s visitors.
Istation may change this Privacy Statement at any time without advance notice. However, if the Privacy Statement changes, Istation will post an updated version on the Website, and the revision date will be posted at the bottom of the page. If this occurs, You will be required to re-acknowledge review of the revised Privacy Statement before you can continue using the Resources.
