Privacy Policy

Revision date: October 3, 2022

This Privacy Policy describes the personal information SASC, LLC (“Activate Learning”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) collects, how we use this information, with whom we share it, and the choices you have in connection with this. This Privacy Policy applies to Activate Learning’s interactive educational platform (the “Platform”), websites located at activatelearning.com, Iqwst.com, activatelearningdigital.com, and ebook.activatelearning.com (collectively, the “Websites”), and e-Book application (“e-Book”) (collectively, the “Services”). 

The Platform and e-Book are provided through educational institutions that contract with us to provide the Platform and/or e-Book to their respective students and teachers. The Websites are available to any person, but are directed to educational institutions for informational purposes.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

  1. Information We Collect in Connection with Providing Educational Institutions with the Platform
    • We collect personal information directly from you to:
      • Add Teachers to a license: To add teachers or administrators to a license for the Platform, we collect their identifiers (name, email address) from the educational institution. We use this personal information to create an account for the Platform.
      • Complete Registration (non-LMS): When a teacher or student is registered, we collect from the educational institution the following identifiers (name, email address, SIS ID and course enrollment). We use this information for the purpose of Platform account management.
      • Login to the Platform (non-LMS ): When teachers and students log in to the Platform, they provide their identifiers (username and password). We use this information to authenticate the user and provide access to the Platform.
      • Participate in the Platform: As students participate in their educational institution’s license for the Platform, we collect students’ identifiers (name, email, username, student identification number), and education information (enrolled school and classes for science instruction, student grade level, grades, assignments, notes). We use this personal information to facilitate the functionality of the Platform and integration with the students’ applicable class.
      • Make a purchase: When an educational institution purchases a license, we collect, from the educational institution, payment information (credit card number, expiration date, and CVV) to process your payment. Please note our payment processor collects and processes this personal information directly on our behalf. We do not retain credit card information.
    • We collect personal information from third parties to:
      • Complete Registration (LMS): In LMS integrations, Activate Learning collects identifiers (name, email) and education information (course enrollment) from the teacher’s Learning Management System via syncs. When a teacher authenticates and selects classes, the teacher is added to the roster in the Platform along with all the students from the selected classes. This is the point at which a student account and teacher account are registered on the Platform.  We use this information for the purpose of Platform account set up and administration.
      • Complete Registration (Clever): When using Clever, Activate Learning receives data from the teacher’s Student Information System via nightly syncs. We collect identifiers (SIS ID, name, email) and education information (course enrollment) for both teachers and students. This is the point at which a student and teacher account are registered on the Platform. We use this information for the purpose of Platform account set up and administration.
      • Login to the Platform (LMS): When a teacher or student logs in to the Platform, we collect user and student roster identifiers (teacher name, teacher email, and class names associated with our programs) through the Learning management System API. We use this information to update class roster information in the Platform.
  2. Information we collect in Connection with Providing Educational Institutions with the e-Book
    • Add Teachers to a license: To add teachers or administrators to a license for the e-Book, we collect their identifiers (name, email address) from the educational institution. We use this personal information to send an email invitation to create an account for the e-Book or a teacher account is activated manually via the e-Book administration panel.
    • Complete Teacher Registration: When a teacher registers the educational institution’s class for the e-Book, it collects the teacher’s identifiers (name, email address, username, and password). We use this information for the purpose of e-Book account management.
    • Login to the e-Book: When a teacher logs in to the e-Book application, we collect, from the teacher, the teacher’s identifiers (username and password). When a student logs in to the e-Book application, we collect from the student, the student’s identifiers (generic username and password). We use this information to authenticate the user and provide access to the e-Book application.
    • Make a purchase: When an educational institution purchases a license, we collect, from the educational institution, payment information (credit card number, expiration date, and CVV) to process your payment. Please note our payment processor collects and processes this personal information directly on our behalf. We do not retain credit card information.
