My School Squared (MSS) believes that all people, wherever they are, whatever their means should have an opportunity to have a better life by providing them a better education. To that end, MSS has developed a web-based Educational Resource (the Platform) that harnesses the power of the internet to bring differentiated instructional material and blended learning into the classroom.
Information We Collect
MSS collects the following information to enable Users to effectively use the Platform for educational purposes:
Information Provided Directly to Us
To provide and improve the Platform, MSS may collect information from Users including, but not limited to:
Information We Collect Automatically
MSS may collect certain information automatically through the Platform, such as Internet protocol (IP) address and other device identifiers that are automatically assigned to a User's computer or device, browser type, operating system, Internet service provider, the date and time of a User's use of the Platform, and information about the links clicked and pages viewed within the Platform.
MSS uses the information it collects as directed by its Partner Schools for its educational purposes and in connection with providing the Platform, including to:
MSS may use the information it collects from Users other than students to provide relevant information about the Platform and its features to Partner Schools and parents.
Before using information collected from student Users for any purposes other than the Partner School's educational purposes, MSS will de-identify information so that it cannot reasonably be linked to an identifiable student User.
MSS does not disclose information except:
Partner Schools may request the deletion of information held by MSS in the Platform. MSS will delete or de-identify such information in a commercially reasonable amount of time in compliance with applicable law, unless we otherwise have consent to retain such information or are required to retain such information to comply with our legal obligations or law enforcement, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements.
We support the involvement of parents and guardians in their children's education. Parents and guardians (and teachers) may use the Platform's controls to track student progress and receive feedback. Parents, guardians, and students can access, review, and request correction of certain information in the Platform directly. They also may request a review or correction of other information by contacting the appropriate official at the student's school or school district. The school may either make the change themselves or submit the request to MSS by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use commercially reasonable efforts and process such requests in a timely manner consistent with applicable law.
MSS uses physical, technical, and administrative measures to help protect information from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We maintain controls to restrict access to information to our employees, agents, partners, and service providers who require such access to perform their assigned duties. We also require partners and service providers to employ data protection and security protocols.
