Service Use and Service Data

Next Gen Math provides the Services solely to and through subscribing schools, school districts, and other educational institutions ("Schools"). Identity information for Students and Administrators for Service delivery is provided to Next Gen Math by Schools and is not separately solicited by Next Gen Math. The information provided to us by Schools may include certain individually identifiable information, including Students’ names, teachers’ names, and Administrators’ names and titles. We only collect and record data identifiable to Administrators regarding their use or administration of, and interaction with, our Services. WE DO NOT, even at the request of a School, accept or include in reports additional Student data, such as class code, room number, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, disability or other information. Collectively, the information we receive regarding Students and Administrators and that is generated through their interaction with our Services constitutes Service Data as defined above.

Next Gen Math uses Service Data solely to deliver the Next Gen Math Services to and through associated Schools, provide Students with individualized content within those Services, and provide Teachers and Administrators with reports on Students’ academic progress in using the Services. Next Gen Math does not collect any more individually identifiable information about Students and Administrators than is reasonably necessary to administer and provide our Services and individualized content to Students and their Schools, to enable participation in School- sanctioned Student contests, and to generate School-requested reports on individual Student academic progress. Next Gen Math may also perform internal research and analysis on aggregated and anonymous Service Data to assess Service effectiveness and improvements in Student performance. Next Gen Math does not disclose Student or Administrator information or other Service Data to an individual or third parties.

Students and Administrators are provided private user names and passwords to access applicable Services and associated Service Data by Next Gen Math. These identification credentials allow Students to gain access to the Services to which their Schools subscribe and allow Administrators to track Student progress and assignment completion. Next Gen Math Services and associated Service Data are not made accessible to anyone other than our employees, contractors, and agents involved in Service development, delivery, and administration and those accessing the Services or associated Service Data using assigned user names and passwords.

If the parent or legal guardian of a Student wants to review the information that Next Gen Math has collected about the Student or learn more about the Service(s) the Student is participating in, he or she should contact the Student’s School.

Next Gen Math makes reasonable efforts to secure Service Data against unauthorized access. These efforts include employment of physical, administrative, and technical safeguards based on currently available technology and practices to promote the integrity and security of the Services and Service Data. In certain of our Service materials we include links to other websites. This Privacy Policy does not apply to such external links, and we make no representations concerning the privacy policies followed by linked websites. We urge parents and teachers to learn more about protecting children on the Internet by visiting the following site: SafeKids.com.

In the event that Next Gen Math is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we may transfer or assign Service Data as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control, unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law.
