Odysseyware® Privacy Policy

Glynlyon® ("we", "us") is committed to improving the education and lives of students. We recognize our responsibility to protect student privacy and ensure security of data. We therefore strive to maintain all required security procedures and practices to safeguard information in our possession and protect student data from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or modification. All children's records are protected as required by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), and other applicable federal and state laws. We require matching username and password combinations to gain access to data and include features to enforce password strength for added user security.

This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") is instituted to maintain your personally identifiable information ("PII") in a safe, secure, and responsible manner. It describes how we collect, use, and share PII we may obtain from you. It does not apply to information that we may collect outside the use of the Website, such as over the phone, by fax, or through conventional mail. You will be notified of any material changes to this Privacy Policy and given options before any PII is used inconsistently with the current terms. Any capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy are defined in the User Agreement.

1. What information is collected with Odysseyware?
We only collect Personally Identifiable Information that is provided to us by you, your parent, or your school. The PII we collect includes first, middle and last names, email address, username, services requested, teacher and student identifiers, and campus identifiers. The only PII collected from you is voluntarily submitted and provided to Glynlyon through your use of the Website, in response to surveys, or in response to other requests for information. We collect PII for purposes of administering educational programs, to improve the content of the Website, and to develop Glynlyon's services. It is limited to what is required to identify the User and is only used to identify the User. We will not collect, maintain, use, or share your PII beyond what is needed for authorized educational purposes or as authorized by you or your parent. Apart from PII, we may collect and log non-personal information related to your use of the Website.

2. What do we do with the information?
Glynlyon maintains all student data, student educational information, and student files as confidential in order to protect the privacy of students and schools. Strict security procedures ensure that student and school files and information are not disclosed to unauthorized parties. Student PII is only disclosed to third parties that comply with our strict confidentiality requirements. We do not build personal profiles of a student other than for supporting authorized educational purposes. We do not sell PII or use PII for behavioral targeting of advertisements to you.

3. How do you secure the information?
We maintain a comprehensive security program that is reasonably designed to protect the security, privacy, confidentiality, and integrity of PII against risks – such as unauthorized access or use, or unintended or inappropriate disclosure – through the use of administrative, technological, and physical safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the PII.

4. Can I control what information you have?
Parents or guardians have the right to review their child's PII collected by Glynlyon, request that their child's PII be revised or deleted, or refuse to allow further PII to be collected. To do so, simply make a request in writing using the contact information listed below.

5. What about Third Party Web Sites?
This Privacy Policy applies only to the Website and not to any other website. Any other website is governed by its own policy. You may be required to accept additional policies to use a website accessed through the Website. We cannot be responsible for the policies of any other website.

6. Where is information stored? How is it transmitted?
We may store or transmit some information, including PII, in or to third party servers. All these servers are in the United States and protected by necessary levels of security. Transmission of PII is secured with proper connections and certificates. You release Glynlyon from any liability associated with our responsible use of third party servers and as stated in the User Agreement.
