Autumnate may ask you for Information in order to provide the Service to you. For example, when you create an account, you will be asked provide certain information, some of which is mandatory and some of which is optional. Types of Information you may be asked to provide include your first and last name, email address, profile picture, username, password, and/or billing and payment information. You may add, delete, or modify your personal information at any time.
At times, we may ask you to provide additional Information so that we may better respond to your questions, inquiries, and other communications. Autumnate will treat any Information you provide during such contacts as PII. However, such information may not be deleted from our records even if you delete the same information from your account.
As part of using the Service, you may add, create, upload, submit, distribute, collect, or post content, videos, audio clips, written comments, data, text, photographs, drawings, software, scripts, graphics, interactive features, or other information . Autumnate recognizes that User Submissions may contain Children's Personal Information, which is governed by specific policies described below. See the Terms of Service for more details on your rights and responsibilities regarding User Submissions.
Autumnate may collect Information on how you use the Service, including your IP address, page requests, time and duration of your visit, and your interactions with the elements of the Service.
Autumnate generally uses Information, including PII and Children's Personal Information, as necessary to provide a functional Service. Additionally, we may use your Information in the following specific ways.
If you have supplied us with your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, ask for your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with ClassForward. We abide by all regulations governing email contact, including the CAN-SPAM Act.
Autumnate may use your Information to suggest products or services to users. Autumnate will never use your Information to advertise or market to students or their parents, and will never use Children's Personal Data for any type of advertising.
Autumnate may use your Information for product development, research, or other purposes. Any Personally Identifiable Information or Children's Personal Data will be de-identified prior to use. We will not attempt to re-identify De-identified Information, and will use all reasonable efforts to ensure that re-identification is not possible.
Autumnate may use your Information to prevent, detect, mitigate, and investigate fraudulent or illegal activity, including violations of the Terms of Service, and to defend itself in any action arising out of the Service.
We will not rent or sell Personally Identifiable Information or Children's Personal Information to anyone without consent. However, we may share Information, including Personally Identifiable Information and/or Children's Personal Information, without prior consent under certain circumstances.
Autumnate reserves the right to share Information with our successors, subsidiaries, or assigns. We may also share Information with companies and organizations that (i) need to know that information to perform services on our behalf (including companies that provide data management or other support services to us, such as data storage and Web hosting services as delineated in the Family Educational Right to Privacy Act), and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Information that you have provided to the Service may be shared with other users based on your privacy settings. Additionally, depending on your account settings, some of your PII (such as your account name) may be displayed to other users when you upload User Submissions, send messages, or otherwise use the Service. We cannot control what other users will do with your Information after you have shared it. Some privacy settings may be set by your organization, and you should review them before sharing any information.
Autumnate may share De-identified Information with our affiliates for product development and research purposes. However, we will not share De-identified Information with any party unless that party agrees not to attempt re-identification.

Access to Information is protected via user authentication and is limited to those employees who require it to perform their job functions. We use industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to safeguard all use of the Service. Other security safeguards include but are not limited to data encryption, firewalls, and physical access controls to building and files.
Personally Identifiable Information and Children's Personal Information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.
Because of the nature of the Service, you and other users may provide and/or have access to Children's' Personal Information. Because of the sensitive nature of such Information, it is governed by several special regulations.
COPPA, 15 U.S.C. §§6501 et seq., regulates the collection of PII from children under 13. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.
If we learn that PII has been provided for or by a child under 13 without parental consent, we will remove it promptly.
FERPA, 20 U.S.C. § 1232g and 34 CFR Part 99, protects the privacy of student education records. It prohibits schools from disclosing educational records without consent, except in specific circumstances. It also gives students and parents certain rights to access and correct education records.
Although Autumnate and the Service are not directly subject to FERPA, we endeavor to provide a high level of privacy and security for student information, and make it easier for teachers, administrators, and other school officials to maintain FERPA compliance. Autumnate will not disclose any educational record without prior consent from a student or guardian, as permitted under 34 CFR §99.33(b) and (c). Generally, this permits disclosures that are necessary to provide the Service and disclosures that are required by law, such as responses to subpoenas.
