WISE OWL APPS PRIVACY POLICY

Updated September 1, 2015

Wise Owl Apps is serious about protecting your privacy, knowing that you care a lot about how your personal information is used and shared. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and protect information that applies to both the website and mobile versions of Snap & Check, our Service. By visiting or using Snap & Check, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy.

1. How We Collect & Use Information

Information you provide to us directly: If you are a teacher, we may ask for certain information such as your username, first and last name, and e-mail address when you register for a Snap & Check account, or if you correspond with us. We may also retain any messages you send through the Service. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Service.

Log file information: Log file information is automatically reported by your browser or mobile device each time you access the Service. When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.

2. Sharing of your information

Your privacy is important to us; we will not share, rent, or sell your information to third parties.

Instances where we are required to share your information: Wise Owl Apps will disclose your information where required to do so by law or subpoena or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement; (b) to protect the security or integrity of our Service; and/or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Wise Owl Apps, our Users, or others.

3. How We Store and Protect Your Information.

Keeping your information safe: Wise Owl Apps cares about the security of your information, and uses commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected through the Service. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from Wise Owl Apps, at all times. However, Wise Owl Apps cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

Compromise of information: In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, Wise Owl Apps will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

4. Student’s (Children’s) Privacy

Wise Owl Apps does not collect or solicit any personal information from students. Though students and their parent or guardians are granted access to our website through the use of login IDs and passwords that teachers provide for the purpose of reviewing data related to in-class assessments, the responsibility for managing and preserving the integrity and security of that information off our website rests with teachers, students, and parents/guardians. Furthermore, teachers are responsible for ensuring that the use of personal information, specifically first and last names and email addresses, complies with applicable laws, including COPPA and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

5. Other Websites and Services

We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites or services (including without limitation those offered by third-party providers) linked to or from the Service, including the information or content contained therein. Please remember that when you use a link to go from the Service to another website, our Privacy Policy does not apply to third-party websites or services. Your browsing and interaction on any third-party website or service, including those that have a link are subject to that third party’s own rules and policies. In addition, you agree that we are not responsible for and we do not have any control over any third-parties that you authorize to access your personal information. If you are using a third-party website or service (like Facebook) and you allow such a third-party access to your personal information you do so at your own risk.

6. Future Changes to Our Privacy Policy

Wise Owl Apps may modify or update this Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect the changes in our business and practices, and so you should review this page periodically. When we change the policy in a material manner we update the “Updated” text at the top of this page.
