You should read this policy in full, but here are a few key points:
Personal Data We Collect: Please see this chart for the detailed categories of information we collect from each user type as well as this chart for more detail on our mobile app permission and our Online Tracking Technologies Policy. You can also find more details below.
How We Use the Information We Collect: We use the personal information we collect from students (or about students from teachers) to provide and improve the Service, for educational, security, and safety purposes, or as required by law. We will not require children to provide more personal information than is reasonably necessary in order to participate in the Service. See here for more information on our use of information collected from students, and here for additional information on our use of information collected from teachers, parents and other non-student users.
Data Retention: We will not retain student personal information for any longer than is necessary for educational purposes and legal obligations, or to provide the Service for which we receive or collect the student personal information. Additionally, we will delete personal information associated with student accounts if they are inactive. Note, however, some content within a student account, such as Artwork, will be kept after deletion of the account for school legal compliance reasons (e.g., maintenance of "education records" under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)). We store non-student user personal information for as long as it is necessary to provide products and Service to you and others. For non-student users, personal information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted or until we no longer need the data to provide the Service, whichever occurs first.

What Student Information is Shown Publicly? No child can upload Artwork (and the associated title and statement) unless the child's teacher is utilizing the Class Portal feature and has certified that he/she received permission and either a) chose to act as an agent of the parent and consented on parents behalf using school consent or b) collected the appropriate parental consent prior to allowing the students access to the Class Portal. Additionally, no child uploaded artwork (and associated title and statement) is shown publicly unless the child's parent or legal guardian has given parental consent, regardless of whether or not school consent was utilized as the method of consent.
You own your data: We don't own any content or information you provide or we receive - you (students, parents and/or schools) will own your content and information.
Security and Privacy by Design and Default: We use security industry best practices to protect personal information, including using encryption and other security safeguards to protect personal information. We design products with security and privacy in mind from day one. See here for more information.
Transparency and Choice: We will be transparent about our practices, so that you can make meaningful choices about how your personal information is used. If we make a material change, we will provide prominent notice by posting a notice on our service or this website page and/or we will notify you by email (if you have provided an email address to us). See here for more information.
Right to Access and Correction of Data: We support access to and correction of student personal information by the student or their parent or legal guardian, either by 1) assisting the school in meeting its requirements for access by responding to requests we receive from schools, or 2) directly responding to requests from parents when the information is collected directly from a student and Artsonia obtains the parental consent (not the school). Teachers, parents and other users can contact us as described in the Contacting Artsonia section below, or here to access, correct or update their personal information, or they can use the features in their account settings to do so. See here for more information, including about your additional rights of data portability and right to object or withdrawal consent.
