LEVEL CHINESE’S GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR STUDENT PRIVACY
While more details are included below, following are the key guiding principles of our approach to student privacy:
Level Chinese provides a web-based technology service that schools and students can use to assess and track mastery of learning objectives. Level Chinese also provides a repository of learning and practice resources that are aligned to each learning objective. In order to provide this service, we collect the following types of information:
We do not accept advertising within our site or service, and do not build personal profiles of students other than for supporting authorized educational/school purposes.
We do not collect any information from students without consent. We do not collect, maintain, use or share student personal information beyond that needed for authorized educational/school purposes. We collect, use, share, and retain personal information only for purposes for which we were authorized by the educational institution, teacher or the parent/student.
Level Chinese only shares personal information in a few limited circumstances, as described below:
In addition to the actions described above, Level Chinese may facilitate the sharing of Student Data with third parties, though only when instructed and authorized to do so on behalf of the school, and in a manner consistent with all applicable laws.
We do not rent or sell information for marketing or advertising purposes.
We maintain a comprehensive security program that is reasonably designed to protect the security, privacy, confidentiality, and integrity of student personal information against risks – such as unauthorized access or use, or unintended or inappropriate disclosure – through the use of administrative, technological, and physical safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.
Storage and processing: Any information collected through the service is stored and processed in the United States. If you use our service outside of the United States, you consent to have your data transferred to the United States.
Keeping information safe: Level Chinese maintains strict administrative, technical and physical procedures to protect information stored in our servers. Access to information is limited to those employees who require it to perform their job functions. We use industry-standard encryption technology to safeguard the account registration process and sign-up information. Other security safeguards include but are not limited to data encryption, firewalls, and physical access controls to buildings and files.
Account information and settings: schools may update account information and modify services and settings by signing into the administrator account.
Access to Student Data: Student Data is provided and controlled by the schools. If you have any questions about reviewing, modifying, or deleting personal information of a student, please contact your school directly. We will assist the school in meeting its requirements to provide access to and correction of Student Data.
Deleting or disabling cookies: You may be able to disallow cookies to be set on your browser. Please look for instructions on how to delete or disable cookies and other tracking/recording tools on your browser’s technical settings. You may not be able to delete or disable cookies on certain mobile devices and/or certain browsers. For more information on cookies, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
Retention of Student Data: We will not knowingly retain student personal information beyond the time period required to support the authorized educational/school purpose, or as authorized by the parent/student. Following termination or deactivation of a school account, any and all Student Data associated with the school will be deleted promptly. We may retain anonymized or aggregated data, including usage data, for analytics purposes.
If you have any questions about data access, retention or deletion, please contact email@example.com.
Level Chinese does not knowingly collect any information directly from children under the age of 13 unless the school has obtained appropriate parental consent for the student to use the service. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe we have inadvertently collected personal information of a child under 13 without proper consent, so that we may delete such data as soon as possible.
We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites, applications or services linked to or from our service. We recommend that the school review the privacy policies of other applications and services before allowing access to them through the service.
