Data We Collect/Share

We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us.

We will only give your data to partners who you tell us to share your data with.

We do not share Personal Information or Children's Personal Information in personally identifiable form to anyone outside our company.

Unless explicitly stated, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information or Children's Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

All of our employees are trained on the sensitivity of student data and are required to sign a contract which requires them to respect, as well as refrain from saving or transmitting personal information to anyone outside of the parties who own that data.

Certain user profile information, including and not limited to, a user's name, reading level, quiz scores, and school affiliation is stored in each user profile. If you are a student, the only users who can view your user profile are yourself, your teachers, and district administrators.

We will not collect any data for the purpose of third party advertising

Removal of data

The data we collect is the property of the teacher, school, or district who enters into this agreement with us. Student and teacher data will be held unless it is requested that such data be purged from our database via signed contract or written request. You can request that data be removed by contacting us at support@birdbrainscience.com We hold data for the sole purpose of ensuring there is no historical, adaptive data loss in the case of a lapse in subscription for the teacher, school, or district.

Sharing of Data

No data will be transferred outside our own system without the permission of users.

Business transfers may occur. We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that would be transferred. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information and Children's Personal Information would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party, but only with permission given by the district, school, or classroom leader.

We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we reasonably believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Company, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

For improvement of our adaptive learning algorithms and other features, we will collect information that is not attached to Personally Identifiable Information, including but not limited to: quiz score averages, reading level gains, and survey questions.

Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information or Children's Personal Information may be shared with third parties in personally identifiable form, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
