The Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (“COPPA”) requires that online service providers obtain parental consent, with limited exceptions, before they knowingly collect personally identifiable information online from children who are under 13. Edlio does not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from a child under 13, except for that child’s name, email address, and the parent or guardian email address, which is the limited amount of personally identifiable information we are allowed to collect in order to provide notice to parents regarding the fact that we may contact their child multiple times for the purpose of providing the service that their teacher has signed up for. If we learn we have collected personal information from a student under 13, except for that child’s name, email address, and child’s parent’s email address, without parental consent being obtained from his or her parent or guardian, or if we learn a student under 13 has provided us personal information beyond what we request from him or her, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a student under 13 may have provided us personal information in violation of this paragraph, please contact us at email@example.com .
“We” is defined as “Edlio, LLC”.
An application programming interface or “API” is a particular set of rules and specifications that allows one software program to access and make use of another software program. It helps facilitate the interaction between applications, similar to the way the user interface facilitates interaction between humans and computers. Edlio uses APIs to enable programming or other similar third-party technologies, products, or activities available through the Application.
2.3 Cookies and other Tracking Technologies.
Cookies are small text files that web servers typically send to users’ computer when they visit a website. Cookies can be used on mobile applications as well. Cookies can be read or edited when the user loads a website or advertisement from the domain that wrote the cookie in the first place. Cookies are used by companies to collect and send information about a user’s visit – for example, number of visits to the application, average time spent, pages viewed, navigation history through the website, and other statistics. This information can be used to improve a user’s online experience by saving passwords, or allowing companies to track and improve website loading times, for instance. Cookies can also be used to track a user’s browsing or online purchasing habits and to target advertisements to specific users. Cookies cannot be used to access any other data on a user’s mobile device, to personally identify them, or to act like malware or a virus. Users who prefer not to accept cookies on the web can set their Internet browser to notify them when they receive a cookie or to prevent cookies from being placed on their hard drive. You can read more about cookies at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/cookies/. We may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (individually or collectively “Pixel Tags”) in connection with our Application to collect usage, demographic and geographical location data. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel that is ordinarily not visible to users and may be associated with cookies on a user’s hard drive. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain screens of the Application, to deliver branded Application and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns.
2.4 Personally Identifiable Information.
We define personally identifiable information (or “PII”) as “information that can be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate a single person or can be used with other sources to uniquely identify a single individual.” e. g. name, address, social security number, e-mail address etc. This is the common industry definition used by most Internet companies. Information that call “non-PII.”
Certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information would be considered a part of your Personally Identifiable Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. However, the same pieces of information are considered Non-Personally Identifiable Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other Non-Personally Identifiable Information (for example, your viewing preferences).
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our applications, including communication features and capabilities, to administer your account, and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the applications.

If the changes are material, we will provide you additional, prominent notice as appropriate under the circumstances.
If the ownership of our business changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner so they can continue to operate the Application. But they will still have to honor the commitments we have made in this Data Use Policy.
We may share aggregated information that does not include Personally Identifiable Information and we may otherwise disclose Non-Personally Identifiable Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personally Identifiable Information.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate the Application available therein, to provide the Application on our behalf and to perform Application related to administration of the Application (“Service Providers”). The types of Service Providers we use include, without limitation, Application providers that provide the following types of Application: website and application maintenance, hosting, database management, data analytics and administration. These third parties have access to your Personally Identifiable Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Edlio cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Edlio or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical, inappropriate the foregoing.

Edlio is very concerned with safeguarding your information. We are not in the business of providing information security. We use our best commercial efforts to employ limited data security measures, such as encryption, on some but not all systems. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while Edlio strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, Edlio cannot guarantee its absolute security. Do not provide your Personally Identifiable Information if you are concerned with its disclosure. We do our best to keep your information secure. We try to keep the Application available, bug-free and safe, but do not make guarantees about any part of our Application.
We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via e-mail or conspicuous posting via the applications in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide the applications to you and others, including those described above. Typically, information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted. For certain categories of data, we may also tell you about specific data retention practices.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Edlio. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
California law permits residents of California to request certain details about what Personally Identifiable Information a company shares with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Edlio does not share your information with third parties for the third parties’ own and independent direct marketing purposes unless we receive your permission. If you have questions about our sharing practices or your rights under California law, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
