Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy explains how information is collected, used, and disclosed by ClassHook, ("We", "Our" or "Us"). The Privacy Policy is incorporated and is subject to the terms and capitalized terms used, but if not found defined in this Privacy Policy, the meanings can be found defined in the Terms of Use.

We receive information about you from various sources ("Your Information"), including: (i) if you register for the Website and the Services, through your user account on the Services (your "Account"); (ii) your use of the Services generally; and (iii) from third party websites and services. When you use the Services, you are consenting to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. By accessing or using ClassHook, you acknowledge that you have read this Privacy Policy, and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions described herein, including ClassHook's Terms of Use.

What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers the treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information"), and other information described in this policy, gathered when you are using or accessing the Services. As used in this Privacy Policy, Personal Information is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as an individual's name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, username, password, IP address, cookie information, and other details. This Privacy Policy also covers Our treatment of any Personal Information that Our business partners share with Us or that We share with Our business partners.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that We do not own or control, including but not limited to any third party websites, services and applications, such as Facebook and YouTube ("Third Party Services") that you elect to access through the Service. While We attempt to facilitate access only to those Third Party Services that share Our respect for your privacy, We cannot take responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of those Third Party Services. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third Party Services you access.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

The information We gather enables Us to personalize, improve and continue to operate ClassHook. In connection with certain aspects of ClassHook, We may request, collect, use, share, and/or display some of your Personal Information. We collect the following types of information from our users:

Uploaded User Content:

Some features of ClassHook allow you to provide content to the Services, such as written comments, discussion questions, or other materials and content ("User Content"). ClassHook is designed to help you share such content with others. As a result, some of the provided content is shared publicly or with Third Parties. Therefore, all content submitted by you to the Services may be retained by us for as long as we require it in relation to the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, subject to state law, even after you terminate your Account. We may continue to disclose such content to Third Parties, as described in this Privacy Policy.

User-Provided Personal Information:
When using ClassHook, such as when you register for an account, and when you post or submit User Content, you may provide us information that can be used to identify you on an individual basis, such as your username, password, and email address.
If you access ClassHook through Facebook or any other social media credentials, we may automatically collect certain information, such as your name, picture, and email address. We will use all information available through social media in accordance with their policies and your preferences selected. The information we collect from your social media account depends on what information you provide those accounts with and the privacy settings you've set. In the future, ClassHook may integrate with other location-based services.

As permitted by law, We may use your contact information to send you information about ClassHook when We feel such information is important. You may unsubscribe from these messages through your account settings, although We reserve the right to contact you even if you unsubscribe when We believe it is necessary and in connection with ClassHook Services, such as communications regarding updates to this Privacy Policy.

Children's Personal Information:

As required by the law and our Terms, ClassHook does not knowingly collect or acquire personal identifiable information from children under thirteen (13). In enforcing this policy ClassHook seeks to fully comply with The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). Accordingly, persons who are thirteen (13) or younger are prohibited from using the Services. If you are under the age of thirteen (13), please do not send Us any other Personal Information about yourself or use the Services.

Parents: If You become aware that a child under the age of thirteen (13) has provided Us with Personal Information without parental consent, please contact us immediately including sufficient detail so that we can investigate and respond accordingly. If We become aware that a child under the age of thirteen (13) has provided Us with Personal Information without parental consent, We will take steps to remove such information and terminate the child's account.

Teachers: Using our Service does not require Personal Information about students, and we prefer not to receive such information. Do not encourage your students to create accounts with our Service.

Information Collected Automatically:

Generally, ClassHook automatically collects usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to the Website. This includes general usage statistics, including, but not limited to, information such as how often you use ClassHook, how long you visit the website, or when you perform certain actions that ClassHook finds interesting. We may use this data in aggregate form, i.e., as a statistical measure. This type of aggregate data enables Us and third parties authorized by Us to figure out how often individuals use parts of the Services, so that We can analyze and enhance the experience of using ClassHook's services for future users. The aggregate statistics characteristics are also utilized to examine a broader category of people (for example, which video clips are most visited, or seem to be most helpful). This derived information is anonymized and used to improve and personalize the recommendation services ClassHook provides to you and our other users.

We may share anonymous aggregated information, including, but not limited to, the information described above, with third parties.

When you visit the Website, we may also collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web browser-based or other do-not-track ("DNT") mechanisms, We do not respond to web browser-based DNT signals at this time.

Please see our Cookies and DNT Policies below for more detailed information.

"Cookies" Information

When you use the Service, We may send one or more cookies – small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser, and the cookie may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Service. Persistent cookies can be removed. Please review your web browser "Help" file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete, or choose not to accept, cookies from the Service, you may not be able to utilize the features of the Service to their fullest potential.

Do Not Track

Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference users can set if they do not want web services to collect information about their online activity. However, there is currently no universal standard for sending and receiving DNT signals. Due to this lack of universal standard, it would be impossible for Us to promise that We comply with all known and unknown DNT standards.

Therefore, ClassHook does not in any way monitor or respond to DNT signals or other mechanisms that provide a choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about activities over time and across different Websites or online services.

If a universal standard for DNT becomes available We may revisit our DNT Policy.

Information Learned from and Sent by Your Mobile Device

ClassHook may collect certain information that your mobile device sends when you use the Services, like a device identifier, user settings, and the operating system of your device, as well as information about your use of the Services while using your mobile device. ClassHook may also use location information to improve and personalize the Services for you. You may stop sharing your location data by adjusting your mobile device's location services settings. For instructions on changing the relevant settings, please contact your service provider or device manufacturer.


To support and enhance the Services, We may serve advertisements, and also allow third parties' advertisements, through the Services. These advertisements are sometimes targeted and served to particular users and may come from third party companies called "ad networks." Ad networks include: third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors, and research firms. We may engage with ad networks that are members or organizations or programs that manage the advertising privacy choices these ad networks offer consumers.

When you visit Our Website or other Services, ad networks and other parties may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these ad networks and other parties.

Advertisements served through the Services may be targeted to users who fit a certain general profile category, which may be inferred from information provided to Us by a user, may be based on the Services usage patterns of particular users, or may be based on your activity on Third Party Services. We do not provide Personal Information to any ad networks for use other than in connection with the Services.


We use Braintree, a service of PayPal, Inc., for payment, analytics, and other business services. Braintree may collect Personal Information from you directly or may receive Personal Information that We share with Braintree solely for the purpose of completing the payment transaction. Braintree collects identifying information about the devices that connect to its services. Braintree uses this information to operate and improve the services it provides to us, including for fraud detection. If you want to have your Personal Information removed from Braintree or have questions about a transaction, please contact ClassHook directly. You can learn more about Braintree and read its privacy policy at

How We Share Your Information with Others
We will not share the personal information we have collected from you, except as described below:
  • When you give Us your consent to do so, for example, when We tell you that the information you provide will be shared in some way and you provide Us that information;
  • When it is required to do so by law, such as in response to a subpoena or where a parent requests copies of Children's Personal Information, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright law), or in response to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or to otherwise cooperate with investigative or law enforcement activity.
  • In connection with any merger, transfer or sale of company assets, financing, acquisition, or similar transaction or circumstance; or
  • To enforce or apply Our Privacy Policy, our Terms of Use or Our other policies or agreements.
Sharing Content with Third Party Services

We are not in the business of selling or leasing your information: WE DO NOT SELL, LEASE, OR SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ADVERTISING OR MARKETING PURPOSES! WE DO NOT SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS POLICY. There are, however, a few limited ways that We share some of the information We collect with others that you should be aware of, as follows:

ClassHook includes features that allow users to communicate in a variety of ways. Any Personally Identifiable Information that you voluntarily choose to share with another user through the Service, or in a publicly accessible area on the Service, such as by sharing User Content with another user, will be available to other users who access that content. Once you make your Personal Information available in this way, We cannot control how the recipient uses that Content.

We work with Third Party Services to provide Website development, hosting, and maintenance as well as other services for Us. To the extent it is necessary for these service providers to complete their contractual obligations to Us, these third parties may have access to or process your personally identifiable information. Generally, Our policy is to make these disclosures under limitations comparable to those in this policy, although certain large service providers, such as large hosting providers, do not expressly agree to such limitations in their contracts with Us or their other customers. Many third parties who We provide your Personally Identifiable Information authorize certain government and law enforcement agencies access to information stored by such third parties without providing notice to Us, in some cases as required by law and in other cases voluntarily, and we have no control over such activities.

We may make certain automatically collected and other aggregate non-personally identifiable information to assist such parties in understanding Our users' interests, habits, and usage patterns for certain programs, content, services, promotions, and/or functionality available through the Service.

ClassHook may feature direct integration with a variety of social networking services such as Twitter or Facebook, enabling users to share the activities tracked by ClassHook with those services. The choice to share data collected by ClassHook with these services is an optional feature of the ClassHook Services. ClassHook will only share information with social networking services that the user chooses to share. Users are responsible for the content they choose to share, and are bound by the respective terms of service and privacy policy for each social networking service. ClassHook has no responsibility to provide or maintain integration with any particular third party service.


We may share limited IP address information with our partners, service providers and other entities with which we conduct business, and as otherwise specified in this Privacy Policy for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

Accessing Your Information

California Privacy Rights: Under Cal. Civ. Code §§1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to ask Us for a notice identifying the categories of personal customer information which We share with Our affiliates and/or third parties for direct marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties with which We have shared Personal Information during the preceding year. If you would like ClassHook to delete your personal information that has been collected, please contact us with your request. We will take steps to delete your information as soon as is practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for Our records and as otherwise required by law.

How We Protect Your Information

We employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. However, despite those efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.

Links to Other Sites

ClassHook may contain links to other services, apps, and sites not operated by Us (we refer to these as "Other Sites"). Any information you provide on those Other Sites is provided directly to whoever owns that site and is subject to their privacy policy. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to those Other Sites, and We are not responsible for the content you provide to, or the privacy and security practices and policies of, Other Sites.

Removal of Information from Children

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

Any information that is collected is subject to Our Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected. We may, however, modify and revise Our Privacy Policy from time to time. In the event of a modification to the Privacy Policy, ClassHook will send a notification to you through email that a change has occurred. It is required that you accept the revised Privacy Policy before continuing to use the Services. By accepting changes to the policy, you are agreeing to be bound by the revised policy.
