This interface is called the Instructor Console.

Where we are required by applicable data protection laws, we will also seek your consent to any material changes that affect how we use your personal information.

WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED AND HOW IS IT USED?

Stoneware may collect the following information through LanSchool Air:

  • Personal Information, such as your name, email addresses, contact information and related user profile data. We collect this information when you register for LanSchool Air, create a user profile, complete a customer satisfaction survey, register for a marketing campaign or promotion and other points where the user chooses to provide such information.
  • Account log-in credentials, such as usernames and passwords, which authenticate users of LanSchool Air.
  • Device identifiers and related information, such as device id, serial number, IMEI, MAC address, IP address and domain names. We use this information to measure the use of our sites and to improve the content of our sites. Aggregated information is not used in such a form that would enable direct connection of any personal information to our visitors.
  • Certain data on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us when using LanSchool Air, during a promotion, from surveys and from our server log files. This information is collected to better understand and serve our users and customers, as well as to determine how we can improve our products. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis so as to prevent identification of personal information relating to any one individual. Stoneware may share this aggregated data with our agents (service providers).

WHAT ABOUT INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM CHILDREN?

LanSchool Air has been developed to be used in a range of diverse educational environments. This includes circumstances where a district, school, institution or instructor has chosen to make LanSchool Air available as a resource for children under the age of 18 and, in certain cases, for children under the age of 13. Therefore, the personally-identifiable and non-personally identifiable information types described above may be collected from children. The following requirements apply for and to the extent LanSchool Air customers use LanSchool Air as a resource for children under the age of 18.

Where children under the age of 18 are concerned, we require that the district, school, institution or instructor agree to the LanSchool Air Terms of Service and this Privacy Statement. In addition, Stoneware requires that the district, school, institution, instructor and/or teacher comply with all requirements set forth under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the United States. In particular, Stoneware highly recommends that the district, school, institution, instructor and/or teacher acquire parents’ or guardians’ written consent by signing a parental consent form prior to allowing their child to use LanSchool Air. The LanSchool Air Parental Consent Form (Click Here to View) is provided simply as an example of what the district, school, institution, instructor and/or teacher may decide for purposes of acquiring consent from parents. The district, school, et al, should first consult with its own counsel before deciding to use this form or any similar form. It should also be recognized that the district, school, institution, instructor and/or teacher, and not Stoneware, are responsible for keeping all signed LanSchool Air parental consent forms on file and making them available upon request. Additional information on COPPA is available at https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/complying-coppa-frequently-asked-questions.

If you are under the age of 18 and your parents or guardians have not provided written consent, please do not send any personal information about yourself through LanSchool Air or through any other means to Stoneware. If a child under the age of 18 submits personal information to Stoneware without the written consent of parents or guardians, we delete the information as soon as we discover it was provided by a child under 18 years of age and do not use it for any purpose. Stoneware encourages parents to take an active role in their children’s use of the Internet and mobile applications and to inform them of the potential dangers of providing information about themselves.

If you are under the age of 18, we also encourage you to review this Privacy Statement and the LanSchool Air Terms of Service with your parents or guardians. Please also note that your parents or guardians, as well as your district, school, institution or instructor may be able to view information relating to your use of Stoneware including, but not necessarily limited to, your grades or scores, your messages created or submitted through LanSchool Air or any other content generated through LanSchool Air.

WHO IS COLLECTING AND USING THE INFORMATION?

When you use LanSchool Air, you are sharing that information with Stoneware, its subsidiaries and affiliated companies for the purposes described above. Additionally, Stoneware contracts with other companies who act as our suppliers to perform services for Stoneware, such as data hosting, processing, product development and analytics. Such services may require Stoneware to share your information with our agents.

Stoneware does not sell or rent any LanSchool Air user information.

Please note that, in special cases, we may need to share information without acquiring consent, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the LanSchool Air Terms of Service or may be violating Stoneware’s or others’ rights or causing injury to or interference with Stoneware’s or others’ property.

LANSCHOOL AIR’S USE OF GOOGLE API SERVICE

Google APIs is an application programming interface which allows interaction between Google products and services and non-Google products. LanSchool Air utilizes Google sign-in’s API to authenticate, authorize and admit the user into the LanSchool Air product. Google end-users who agree to use the API service submit their Google user credentials to Google sign-in to establish a secure connection to his or her Google data. While LanSchool Air does store the instructor’s first name, last name, email addresses and Google IDs, LanSchool Air does not store any of the user’s Google data. Google’s Privacy Policy can be accessed at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

HOW IS MY INFORMATION SECURED?

When you provide your information via LanSchool Air, we use certain security measures, such as authentication techniques, access controls and encryption, where appropriate. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely invulnerable. As a result, while we have taken appropriate steps to protect your personal information, Stoneware cannot ensure or otherwise warrant the security of any information you provide to us and therefore you use LanSchool Air at your own risk.

DOES STONEWARE TRANSMIT MY PERSONAL INFORMATION INTERNATIONALLY?

Stoneware and Lenovo are global organizations, with legal entities, business processes, management structures, and technical systems that cross borders. Therefore, where permitted by law, we may share your personal information within Stoneware and Lenovo (including to subsidiaries, affiliates and parent companies) or our suppliers and business partners and may host or process such data on servers located in other countries in the world where we do business. Regardless of where your information is transferred to and resides, our privacy and security practices are designed to provide protection for your personal information globally.

Please note that some countries have privacy laws that are not equivalent to privacy laws in your own country. In such countries, Stoneware and Lenovo will still handle information in the manner we describe here and will take such measures as are necessary to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring and processing your information. Where required, Stoneware and Lenovo will also maintain agreements between Lenovo group companies or with Lenovo partners or suppliers to govern the transferring, processing and protection of personal information.

HOW LONG WILL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION BE RETAINED?

We will retain your personal information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with services and may be archived for a short time period thereafter prior to being permanently purged.
