Subject Line: Legal
In describing our collection, use, and sharing of information in this Policy, we refer to our collection and use of “Educator Information.” When we refer to “Educator Information” we are referring to an educational institution’s school officials (teachers and district personnel) using DJ Services. Educator Information, as used in this Policy, may be personally identifiable, which is information that directly identifies an individual, such as first and last name, school mailing address, email address, billing information, telephone number, or other online contact information.
We collect Educator Information you provide to us in orders, registration forms, user profiles, requests for customer service, downloads, and account creation.
School officials can connect to DJ Services through an authorized third party service, and can use the third party login information to log in to DJ Services. By using any third party services to log in to DJ Services, you permit us to access, store and use the user profile information accessible to us through the third party service’s application programming interface (API), pursuant to this Policy. Use of Third Party Login is not a requirement. We provide additional options if you do not want to use Third Party Login.
We use Educator Information to establish and enhance our relationship with our users through communication and optimization. We use Educator Information to provide you with customer support and license management, to process transactions, send updates, seek opinions and feedback, response to requests, and connect users with other DJ Services. We use user information, behavioral metrics, and other Educator Information to operate, provide, improve, and maintain DJ Services, to develop new products and services, to prevent abuse and fraud, and for other administrative and internal business purposes.
We retain Educator Information for no longer than is commercially useful to carry out our business purposes, or as we believe may be legally required. When Educator Information is deleted, it may take up to 30 days from accessible systems, and up to 90 days from backup systems to be removed.
Don Johnston Incorporated will not sell or rent Educator Information to third parties. We may disclose Educator Information if we have a good-faith belief that doing so is required to comply with the law, prevent fraud, or to protect Don Johnston Incorporated’s property rights.
We may provide Educator Information to third parties for their use in performing internal business functions (e.g., payment processing, customer service, maintenance, security, data analysis, email transmission, beta testing, or data hosting) on our behalf.
Educator Information may be disclosed as part of any bankruptcy, merger, sale, transfer of company assets, acquisition, or similar transaction. In the event of such a transaction in which Educator Information would be transferred to a third party, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you. For example, we will post a notice of the transfer of Educator Information on our DJ Services and, if we have your email address, we will send notice of the transfer of Educator Information to that email address.
In describing our collection, use, and sharing of information in this Policy, we refer to our collection and use of “Student Information.” When we refer to “Student Information” we are referring to students who are using DJ Services purchased by an educational institution, parent or guardian. Student Information, as used in this Policy, may be personally identifiable, which is information that directly identifies an individual, such as first and last name. However, for students, DJ Services does not require use of personally identifiable information. Student Information may also include, but is not limited to, student identification number, preferences, grade, and independent reading level.
Don Johnston only collects Student Information where that student’s educational institution has contracted with Don Johnston to collect the Student Information for the use and benefit of the student’s school and/or school district and for no other commercial purpose. Children under 13 years old are not allowed to create an account without an educational institution acquiring a parent or guardian’s express consent.
If you believe that a student is using DJ Services without consent of an educational institution, parent or guardian, please contact Don Johnston Incorporated at email@example.com, Subject Line: Legal.
We collect Student Information on account creation, assessment creation, through account management, and student management.
Students can connect to DJ Services through an authorized third party service, and can use the third party login information to log in to DJ Services. By using any third party services to log in to DJ Services, you permit us to access, store and use the user profile information accessible to us through the third party service’s application programming interface (API), pursuant to this Policy. Use of Third Party Login is not a requirement. We provide additional options if you do not want to use Third Party Login.
Don Johnston Incorporated does not use any personally identifiable Student Information. We do not advertise or contact students in any way.
Student Information that may be personally identifiable is made available only to school officials solely for the benefit and use of the educational institution and the student’s education.
We use behavioral metrics, and other non-personally identifiable Student Information to improve, and maintain DJ Services, to develop new products and services, and to prevent abuse and fraud.
We retain Student Information for no longer than is commercially useful to carry out our business purposes, or as we believe may be legally required. When Student Information is deleted, it may take up to 30 days from accessible systems, and up to 90 days from backup systems, for us to delete such Student Information.
Don Johnston Incorporated will not sell, rent or otherwise disclose Student Information to third parties unless such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect Don Johnston Incorporated’s property rights.
DJ Services stores Educator Information and Student Information (collectively “Information”) in the United States of America. Information may also be stored locally on the devices you use to access DJ Services.
If you are a parent of a student and would like to request or delete Student Information for your child, contact your educational institution and they can remove the student or change preferences so no data is collected on your child.
