Terms, Conditions, & Privacy Policy

Stackup Data is Yours:

We take your privacy very seriously. Your information can only be accessed by you. We protect your data using secure servers and our software has been reviewed by security experts.

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their ‘Personally identifiable information’ (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

This is our general privacy policy for all users that sign up on their own, and for schools and school districts that do not have their own written policy. Stackup is happy to review and comply with your school’s data privacy data-privacy rules and guidelines. This can be done by emailing us Team@stackup.net.

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 user’s experience.
  • To improve our website in order to better serve you.
  • To provide our users with big data i.e most popular website.
  • To allow us to better service you.
  • Stackup is completely proprietary. Only Stackup has the data, and only users and Stackup Admin can access it.
  • We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. 

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). 

What happens if there is a change of control?

This privacy policy lives with the Stackup data and carries on after acquisition or company failure.

How do I delete my account and what happens to my data?

You can delete your account at any time by visiting your Settings and clicking the large red “delete my account” button or by emailing us at team@stackup.net. Once your account has been deleted, all data related to your account is permanently deleted.

California Online Privacy Protection Act:

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

We agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.

Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.

  • Google Analytics –  to improve the user experience. This tracking includes things like which pages on our website are visited most. This tracking info is not tied to individual users, and cannot be used by Google.

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 team@stackup.net.

Consent:

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 team@stackup.net Please contact us at team@stackup.net 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.

Fair Information Practices:

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify the users via email.

  • Within 7 business days

Take immediate action to correct such data breach and prevent it from happening again.

CAN SPAM Act:

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:

  • Improve user experience.
  • Notify you of important updates and added features.
  • Keep your data tied to you.

To be in accordance with CANSPAM we agree to:
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at team@stackup.net and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence. You can also elect to unsubscribe yourself in your Stackup account.

Changes to our Privacy Policy:

Stackup may modify or update this Privacy Policy from time to time so you should review this page periodically. If we change the policy in a material manner, for example, if we seek to use personal information in a materially different way than we had previously, we will provide at least 10 days notice via email so that you have sufficient time to evaluate the change in practice. Of course, you can always opt-out by deleting your account before the changes take effect.

Student Privacy Pledge Sig_logo

K-12 School Service Provider Pledge to Safeguard Student Privacy:

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 school service provider.

We Commit To:

  • Not collect, maintain, use or share student personal information beyond that needed for authorized educational/school purposes, or as authorized by the parent/student.
  • Not sell student personal information.
  • Not use or disclose student information collected through an educational/school service (whether personal information or otherwise) for behavioral targeting of advertisements to students.
  • Not build a personal profile of a student other than for supporting authorized educational/school purposes or as authorized by the parent/student/teacher.
  • Not make material changes to school service provider consumer privacy policies without first providing prominent notice to the account holder(s) (i.e., the educational institution/agency, or the parent/student when the information is collected directly from the student with student/parent consent) and allowing them choices before data is used in any manner inconsistent with terms they were initially provided.
  • Not knowingly retain student personal information beyond the time period required to support the authorized educational/school purposes, or as authorized by the parent/student.
  • Collect, use, share, and retain student personal information only for purposes for which we were authorized by the educational institution/agency, teacher or the parent/student.
  • Disclose clearly in privacy policies, including in a manner easy for parents to understand, what types of student personal information we collect, if any, and the purposes for which the information we maintain is used or shared with teachers. Only the student can share his or her data with third parties.
  • 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.
  • Require that our vendors with whom student personal information is shared in order to deliver the educational service, if any, are obligated to implement these same commitments for the given student personal information.
  • Allow a successor entity to maintain the student personal information, in the case of our merger or acquisition by another entity, provided the successor entity is subject to these same commitments for the previously collected student personal information.
