2. HOW YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IS COLLECTED

Personal Information is obtained directly from Students, Parents, and Users through the Services. 

3. DATA REGARDING CHILDREN UNDER 13

We work with partners and schools that provide Services as part of their curriculums to Students under 13, and we sell the Services directly to schools that use the Services for the benefit of, and allow use of the Services by, Students under 13.  In such cases, we rely on these partners and/or schools to obtain verified parental consent required by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of the United States (“COPPA”) from parents or guardians of such Students under 13 so that New Classrooms can either directly collect information from such Students or so that New Classrooms can receive such information from the applicable partner or school that collected such information.  We rely on such partners and/or schools to obtain this consent before New Classrooms directly collects Personal Information from such Students, or before the partner or school provides such information to New Classrooms (as applicable).  We collect only Personal Information set out in Section 1.A above (Student Personal Information) regarding Students under 13, whether collected directly or indirectly by New Classrooms. 

If you are a Parent of a child under 13 that attends a school whereby the Services will be provided to such child, you must provide verified parental consent for your child to use the Services, and you must be the actual Parent of the child in order to legally grant such consent under COPPA.  If you have additional questions on how this consent is obtained or can be withdrawn, please contact the school or partner directly.  Subject to certain limitations under law, you have the right to withdraw your consent to use of Student Personal Information or Parent Personal Information at any time by contacting us using the contact details in Section 14 (Contact Us).  If you revoke your consent or refuse to allow further collection of Personal Information, you must also contact the applicable school whereby the Services are being provided to your child as a Student.  Upon receipt of this request, we will delete any unaggregated, non-anonymized personal information we have in our possession regarding your child, and you and your child will not provide us with any more Personal Information thereafter (note, however, that we may suspend you and your child’s ability to use the Services indefinitely, until a new verified parental consent is received by the applicable school or partner).  As a Parent, you also have rights, as set forth in Section 4 below, to view, verify, and change or update any Student Personal Information collected by us about your child.

Any Personal Information from Students under the age of 13 that is collected by New Classrooms as described herein is done solely to provide the Services to partners and schools using the Services for such Students, as well as the individual Students themselves that are participating in the classes provided by such partners and schools.  We do not collect more Personal Information from Students under 13 than is necessary for us to do the foregoing.  New Classrooms requires such partners and schools to comply with COPPA.  Except as set forth in this Notice, New Classrooms does not otherwise knowingly solicit any Personal Information directly from, or otherwise knowingly use or disclose Personal Information of, Students under the age of 13.  In the event New Classrooms is made aware that it has collected Personal Information from a child under 13 years old in a manner that is inconsistent with COPPA, then we will delete this information as soon as practicable. 

4. YOUR PARENTAL RIGHTS UNDER COPPA

We will not require a Student to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the Services. Under the COPPA, Parents have the right to:

      • Review (and verify, change, or update) their child’s personal information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of their child’s information, and
      • Agree to the collection and use of their child’s information without allowing sharing with third parties, unless the disclosure is part of the service offered.

7. COLLECTION AND USE OF AGGREGATED DATA

We also collect and use anonymized data such as statistical or demographic data (“Aggregated Data”). Aggregated Data may be derived from or include data collected through the Services but is not considered Personal Information under applicable law because this data does not directly or indirectly reveal Student, Parent, or User identity. 

If we combine or connect Aggregated Data with Personal Information so that it can directly or indirectly identify a Student, Parent or User, we treat the combined data as Personal Information which will be used only in accordance with this Notice.
