IMPORTANT! Our Website Services are intended to be used only by users who are age 13 and older. If you are under 13 years old, please do not use our Website or Services or submit any information to us about yourself including your name, address, or email address, unless you are using our Services through your school and your parent or guardian has given your teacher and school written permission for you to use our Services. If we learn we have collected any information from a child without prior written parental consent, we will delete that information and comply with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). If you believe that we might have any information from or about your child, please contact us at email@example.com.
If you disagree with any of the provisions herein, you do not have the right to use our Website and Services and must leave the Website. You are welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments, concerns, and suggestions.
WE CARE ABOUT YOUR PRIVACY
We respect your privacy and take great care to safeguard your personal information in our possession. Your preferences for use of your information are our highest priority. We take seriously the protection and proper use of your Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and other non-public information and data which includes but is not limited to your name, email, user content, metadata, student data, and staff data.
Our applications and services may be used by children in schools and classrooms. We do not use or disclose personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 (or under the age of 18 for that matter) without parental or guardian consent or without permission from that student’s teacher and/or school to obtain parental consent for that student to use our Services and disclose personal information to us. Again, if you are a student under age 13, please do not send any personal information about yourself to us unless your teacher or school has received written consent for you to use our Services from your parent or guardian. If we learn that we have collected information from children through our services or applications, we will either delete that information or notify parents and obtain consent prior to such collection in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA|SHERPA”). If you believe that a student under 13 may have provided us personal information in violation of this paragraph, please contact us at email@example.com.
As part of our commitment to responsible stewardship and appropriate use of student personal information, we have signed the Student Privacy Pledge maintained by the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) and the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA). You may read the full pledge here or click on the links to learn more. As such, we will:
- Not collect unauthorized student PII.
- Not sell student PII.
- Not behaviorally target or show advertising to students.
- Not change privacy policies without notice.
- Retain student PII only for authorized educational purposes.
- Support parental access to and correction of errors in their students’ PII.
- Maintain technological security safeguards for student data.
- Clearly describe the types of student PII we collect in our privacy policies and whether any is shared with third parties.
If you are a school, district, or teacher, you represent and warrant that you are solely responsible for complying with COPPA, meaning that you must obtain advance written consent from all parents or guardians whose children under 13 who will be accessing our Services and keep all consents on file and available to us if we request them. You also represent that you have permission from your school and/or district to use our Services as part of your curriculum and that you are responsible for understanding how our Services may collect and access student user data.
REGISTRATION AND USE OF OUR SERVICES
Anyone over the age of 18 (or under 18 with parental consent as described above) may visit our Website, but to use our online Services, you must first register for a user account and select a username and password to create an Enlearn (“Student ID”). By registering to use our Services, you may be asked to provide us with your name and email address. You may also be able to register through a third party account such as your Google account where you authorize information about you to be sent to us in order to create your Enlearn user account.
You are responsible for all information you provide to us through use of our Service and promise that it is accurate, is yours to provide, and current at all times, and if it is not, we reserve the right to restrict or terminate your account and use of our Services.

HOW WE MAY USE YOUR DATA AND CONTENT FOR RESEARCH
Enlearn is a nonprofit organization committed to using the power of research and technology to accelerate learning. As such, we are committed to protecting your Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and using it for educational purposes. We will not use user PII to target you with advertising or marketing efforts or sell your PII to third parties.
We collect the minimum PII necessary for you to register for an account to access our Services, such as your email, username, and password. We also automatically collect your non-personal usage data that may allow our technology to adapt to your use or to find the next best problem for you as you interact with our online Services. When our adaptive learning platform connects this usage data with your PII, it also becomes PII that your school or teacher may see and use to help you learn and to measure your progress.
For research purposes, your usage data is typically reported at the aggregate level which means that it is de-identified from you and will not be publically disclosed in any research findings. We will not attempt to re-identify de-identified data and will not transfer de-identified data to any third party unless they agree not to re-identify data.
