Privacy policy (COPPA and FERPA info)

What information do we collect?

Whether you're a student visiting our site or the parent or teacher of a student, you may wonder what we do with the information we collect. Please review the frequently asked questions below.

What types of personal information do we collect from students?

To register for a course required by a teacher, students must provide us with their email address and first/last name. We will require them to choose a user name and password. Because the student is part of a class list, we will also know the student's school and their assigned teacher.

How do we use this personal information?

We create an account that allows students to access the course and allows teachers to see the results of assessments. We also use aggregated data (not individual) to see how students are using the course.

Does the operator use or share the information for commercial purposes?

No. We do not sell, rent or share personal information collected with third parties.

Can the parents, teachers and the school review personal information collected from their students and have it deleted?

Yes. Parents can contact GrowNextGen's e-learning technical admin to have their child's personal information removed from the site as soon as the teacher has completed the assignment.

What measures does the operator take to protect the security, confidentiality and integrity of the personal information that it collects?

Our courses use industry-standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology to encrypt information transmitted across the Internet to and from our site. Unfortunately, no data shared over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure against hackers or misuse. CCWA and GrowNextGen shall not be liable if a security breach occurs, if the site malfunctions, or if information is misused or mismanaged.

What are the operator's data retention and deletion policies for children's personal information?

All user information is saved in site logs for one year and then automatically deleted.
