FERPA, COPPA, and CIPA Compliance
As a platform used primarily by educational institutions, we take student privacy very seriously. Our Service is designed to be compliant with COPPA, CIPA, FERPA as well as with NYS EDLaw2D:
The Service is not intended to be used individually by children under 13, and thus no Personal Data or PII of children under 13 is knowingly collected. When used with children under 13, the Service is intended to be used by an adult supervisor such as a teacher, who would make use of their own Service account to do so.
If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your children under the age of 13 have provided us with Personal Data, please contact us and we will assist in deleting it.
Children between the ages of 13 and 17 who use the service are expected to do so with parental consent or the consent of adult supervisors such as a teacher or administrator at their school.
If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent or the consent of other adult supervisors such as teachers, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
FERPA and NYS EDLaw2D
For students aged 13-17, no PII besides name, email, grade, age, and class enrollment are ever collected
Within the user-facing application, students’ PII such as names, email addresses and course enrollment information is only accessible to class instructors
Within the administrative system, we have instituted strict system controls, such that only a small number of authorized personnel with the appropriate permissions and credentials can access any user's PII
All data is password-protected, and encrypted when being transmitted to and from our servers and database
In general, we have worked to adopt technologies, safeguards and practices that align with the NIST
The collected PII data is always available for review by administrators of the educational institutions with which we work, and can be deleted at their request
Students' PII data is never shared with third parties, unless required by law
For any data breaches that may occur, there are procedures in place to promptly notify any users and educational institutions affected
The Company works to comply with any other data security and privacy policies of the educational institutions with which it contracts
The Service offers educational content related to emotions, behavior, and emotion regulation. This content is carefully crafted by emotion science experts, and is never obscene or otherwise inappropriate.
Further, the Service adjusts its educational content based on the age/grade level of the learner, to ensure that language and examples used are suitable for the user's age.
The service also provides instructors the ability to limit students' access to training materials that pertain only to age appropriate media content.
The Service DOES NOT provide access to media content itself such as film or TV shows to students. All narrative media content that users access while using the Service, such as films and TV shows, is accessed via streaming platforms such as Netflix, Disney+, Peacock, YouTube, etc. The Service only offers an educational content layer, such as information regarding emotion science, that accompanies the media accessed via these streaming platforms. As such, the Service has no ability to police or restrict users' media access, and relies on restrictions placed by educational institutions, such as site blocks, or parental controls to determine which media content is accessible to students.
