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:
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 in connection with ClassHook. This information is anonymous and only associated with your phone through a unique identifier assigned internally by the ClassHook service.
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 without verifiable parental consent, and for that reason, we have designed our signup flow to verify the age of each new user at the registration stage. By registering, you promise that you provided your real birthdate during your signup, and you are either (a) over the age of thirteen (13) or (b) you gave us your parent or legal guardian's actual and current email address, and that any response sent to ClassHook in response comes from your parent or legal guardian. If you are under the age of thirteen (13), please do not send us any other Personal Information about yourself.
Parents: If your child is under the age of thirteen (13), we will not provide access to the Services to your child without your verifiable consent, which ClassHook obtains through the link on the sign-up page. If your child is under the age of thirteen (13) and has an account on the Services without your consent, please contact us immediately including sufficient detail so that we can investigate and respond accordingly.
Teachers: Using our Service does not require much if any personal information about students, and we prefer not to receive such information, however, if you require students to create their own accounts, please reference our COPPA guidelines outlined above.
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.
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 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 (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.
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 use our mobile applications 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 are not in the business of selling or leasing your information: WE DO NOT SELL, LEASE, OR SHARE YOUR (OR CHILDREN'S) 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 Submissions with another user, will be available to other users who access that content. Once you make your Personally Identifiable Information available in this way, we cannot control how the recipient uses that content.
We work with third party service providers to provide Website and application 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.
California Privacy Rights: Under California Civil Code sections 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 marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties. You can view the location and time data collected from within ClassHook. 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.
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.
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.
