What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our blog, website or app?
When registering on our site, as appropriate and only when needed, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, or other details to help you with your experience. Stackup recommends signing up using “Sign in with Google” which utilizes Google OAuth 2.0. Students cannot upload content to the Stackup service.
Stackup also collects the reading time, reading level, and category of online reading & learning. This specifically to provide our users with the main functionality of Stackup, and nothing else. Stackup is not considered an educational record, but you may want to review this with your school.
When do we collect this information?
We collect information from you when you register on our site, use the Chrome Extension, subscribe to a newsletter, fill out a form or enter information on our site.
The Stackup Chrome Extension can be disabled or uninstalled at any time.
How do we use your information?
We may use the information we collect from you when you register, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, use the browser extension, or use certain other site features in the following ways:
- To personalize your experience.

What data or information is shown publicly or visible to others?
No individual student’s account (including all student data) is made publicly available in any way. Only the student, student’s teachers, and designated school leaders can see a student’s dashboard. These accounts are not viewable by the general public, and one must be securely signed in and associated with that particular school, class, or student to be viewed.
A strict hierarchy is kept so that:
- [Educator] Elected Stackup District Admin can only see their district data.
- [Educator] Elected Stackup School Admin can only see their school data.
- [Educator] Stackup Teachers can only see their students data.
- [Student] Stackup Students can only see their own data.
Students cannot interact with each other within the Stackup platform. Educators interactions with their students within the Stackup platform are limited (for example, a Teacher can view a students dashboard, but cannot change it).

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act):
Stackup is honored to be entrusted by educators and families to support their educational needs and takes responsibility to both support the effective use of student information and safeguard student privacy and information security.
Stackup seeks to build trust by effectively protecting the privacy of student information and communicating with parents about how student information is used and safeguarded.
Stackup pledges to carry out responsible stewardship and appropriate use of student personal information according to the commitments below and in adherence to all laws applicable to us as a school service provider.
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. 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. To find more information on COPPA, you can visit www.coppa.org
At Stackup, we take children’s privacy very seriously. We do not knowingly collect any Personally Identifiable Information from children under 13 without Parental consent.
FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act ):
Stackup helps schools stay fully FERPA-compliant. Here’s how: Under FERPA, a “School Official” can share information with third-parties that provide a legitimate educational function. Stackup supports this approach by requiring as little of student information as possible in or to carry out its educational function. Alternatively, some schools or districts may instead choose not to rely on the “School Official” exemption, and instead get parental consent for each technology they use. Stackup can provide this consent form and help distribute/collect it! Email us at email@example.com.
At Stackup, we take children’s privacy very seriously. We do not knowingly collect any Personally Identifiable Information from children under 13 without Parental consent. For a send home form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Please contact us at email@example.com if you believe we have inadvertently collected personal information of a child under 13 without proper parental consent so that we may delete such data as soon as possible. Teachers are asked to help facilitate the use of consent forms to all students under the age of 13 before signing up for Stackup.
