PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY

THIS PAGE PROVIDES GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE PRIVACY POLICY OF THIS MOBILE APPLICATION.  IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE, PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY WITH YOUR PARENTS OR GUARDIAN AND ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT THINGS YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND.

This Mobile Application (the “Mobile App”) is brought to you by PowerSchool Group LLC (“PowerSchool”).

Your use of this Mobile App is subject to the Terms of Use posted on our Website.  The Terms of Use (including this Privacy Policy) or any part thereof may be revised from time to time through an updated posting, and therefore you should check the Terms of Use (including this Privacy Policy) periodically.  Revisions are effective upon posting and your continued use of this Mobile App following the posting of revisions to the Terms of Use (including this Privacy Policy) will indicate your acceptance of such revisions.  If you have any questions concerning the Terms of Use (including this Privacy Policy), please Contact Us.

What Information Is Collected/How Information is Used

PowerSchool receives disclosures from education agencies and institutions, both public and private, which include the personal information contained in student records.  We consider the following to be examples of personal information: they include but are not limited to your first and last name, email address, home address, phone number, social security number and certain other information to the extent they are linked with your personal information.

The information we learn from users helps us personalize and continually improve your experience on our Mobile App in furtherance of serving the user’s needs and our legitimate business purposes.  We receive and store any information you enter on this Mobile App or give us in any other way.  You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features.  We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing features for you, and communicating with you.  Except as specifically stated herein, our policy is not to share this information with third parties, but we may share this information with other companies within PowerSchool.  We will never sell this information to third-party marketing companies.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information collected through this Mobile App may be supplied to affiliates of PowerSchool, and other companies and organizations who perform work for us under contract or sell products or services that complement our products and services.  We also may disclose personally identifiable information in the following situations: (a) in response to a subpoena, court order or legal process, to the extent permitted and required by law; (b) to protect user security or the security of other persons, consistent with applicable laws; (c) in connection with a sale, joint venture or other transfer to some or all of the assets of PowerSchool; or (d) in order to enforce the Mobile App’s Terms of Use.  We otherwise exercise commercially reasonable care to not otherwise share or disclose the names of users or any personally identifiable information with third parties, except with the prior approval of the user.

Access & Correcting Erroneous Data

Under FERPA, a school must provide a parent with an opportunity to inspect and review his or her child’s education records within 45 days following its receipt of a request.  A school is required to provide a parent with copies of education records, or make other arrangements, if a failure to do so would effectively prevent the parent from obtaining access to the records.

To ensure data security, PowerSchool provides limited ability to amend data through the use of select PowerSchool Products (e.g., PowerSchool Registration).  Within your sole discretion, you can allow parents, legal guardians, and eligible students, who are over eighteen years of age, to view and/or download student’s data through the PowerSchool Products that support this capability.  In the event there is any erroneous data contained in the student record, PowerSchool advises parents, legal guardians, and eligible students to contact your school district to update the erroneous data.

Collection And Use Of Information

PowerSchool uses third party services to collect anonymous visitor data on our Mobile App. These services do not collect any personal information such as names, ages, phone numbers, addresses or e-mail addresses from visitors to the Mobile App. PowerSchool uses these services to collect visitor information like IP addresses, and time spent in the App. PowerSchool uses these services to collect this information for the following purposes: (1) to provide statistical analysis of Mobile App traffic patterns; (2) to administer our Mobile App and servers; (3) to allow for auditing of our services by third parties; and (4) for internal marketing purposes.

This Mobile App may provide links to third party websites or resources.  The information practices of those websites are not covered by this Privacy Policy or any other policies or terms applicable to this Mobile App.  We recommend that you review any terms of use and privacy policy of any linked third party website before providing any information to that website or using its products and services.
