Privacy Policy



DEEDLY INC (“Deedly”) combines Web-based technology with traditional content and 21st century teaching methods. Deedly has established this Privacy Policy to let users (“Users”) know how it collects, uses, shares and protects information that is gathered from the Deedly platform. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information that may be collected from Users outside of Schools or gathered from other methods, such as over the phone, by fax, or through conventional mail. All “educational records” (as that term is defined in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act or “FERPA”) submitted to Deedly will be kept confidential and will not be disclosed to any third parties. Additionally, Deedly is under the direct control of the educational institution with respect to the use and maintenance of such “educational records.”

Non-Personal and Aggregated Information Collected Automatically. Each time a User visits Deedly, Deedly logs non-personal information. Such information includes, but is not limited to, the User’s IP address, domain name, the name of the Web page from which the User entered Deedly, which pages the User visits on Deedly, and how much time the User spends on each page. This information is used to monitor and improve Deedly and for internal analysis. In particular, IP addresses are used to analyze trends, administer the websites, and gather information for aggregate use. IP addresses, however, are not linked to any personal information.

Personal Information Provided by Users or on Their Behalf. Deedly does not collect personal information about Users except when such Users specifically provide personal information on a voluntary basis (for example, by providing a User’s name or the User’s Deedly user name and password (their “Login Information”) in connection with a request for technical support, whether over the telephone or through web-based support) or when personal information is provided on behalf of an individual (for example, by a school administrator or teacher entering identifying information about teachers, students, or parents for the purpose of setting up Deedly for such Users). The personal information about Users collected by Deedly is limited to (i) school’s name, administrators’ names, their contact information and Login Information, (ii) teachers’ names, courses they teach, Department of Education identification number, contact information and Login Information, and (iii) students’ personally created username, solely for the purpose of tracking and gathering data regarding such students’ use of Deedly. The personal information collected by Deedly is used by Deedly Inc. to assist support staff in identifying a User’s account for the purpose of providing technical support.

Student User Data. Deedly does not collect any personal information related to Student Users.  Each student will need a unique username and password to access Deedly, which will be stored.  No further personal information related to a Student User will be requested.

Data. As used herein, the term “Data” is defined to include all Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and other non‐public information. This includes, but is not limited to, student data, metadata, User content, non-personal and aggregated information collected automatically, and personal information provided by Users or on their behalf.  “Data” also includes all personal information provided on behalf of children.

De-Identification of Data.  Deedly may use de-identified Data for product development, research, or other purposes. De-identified Data will have all direct and indirect personal identifiers removed. This includes, but is not limited to, name, ID numbers, date of birth, demographic information, location information, and school ID. Furthermore, Deedly agrees not to attempt to re-identify de-identified Data and not to transfer de-identified Data to any party unless that party agrees not to attempt re­identification.

Use of Data.  Data may not be used for any purpose other than the specific purpose(s) outlined in this Policy.

Use of Cookies. Deedly uses “cookies” to help personalize Users’ online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on a User’s hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to a User’s computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to Users of Deedly. Deedly uses cookies to keep track of how Users are using Deedly to tailor content to their interests. If a User is registered with Deedly, cookies will ease the User’s access to and navigation around Deedly. Cookies generated by Deedly do not contain personal information about Users. Deedly will not share or sell information contained within cookies to any third party. Users also have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but Users can usually modify their browser settings to decline cookies if they prefer. If, however, a User chooses to decline cookies, that User may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of Deedly or have some of the services on Deedly function properly.

Personal Information Provided on Behalf of Children. Deedly understands that Users who are under 13 years of age (“Children”) need special safeguards and privacy protection, and it is the intent of Deedly to fully comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). Deedly does not collect personal information directly from Children online at any point. Deedly only receives personal information about Children directly from school administrators and/or teachers when they set up Deedly. Parents or legal guardians should contact their Child’s school to review any personal information regarding their Children that the school’s administrators or teachers have provided to Deedly.

Parents or legal guardians can request that their Children’s school not provide any personal information through Deedly to Deedly Inc. Please be aware that, depending on the school’s policies, if a parent or legal guardian makes such a request, their Children may no longer be eligible to be enrolled in Deedly or utilize Deedly. Therefore, such a request by a parent or legal guardian could potentially terminate their Children’s participation in and their use of Deedly. For information on COPPA and the use of Children’s personal information, please contact:

Private Messaging. Deedly may offer private messaging to certain Users on Deedly. Users should be aware that any information posted in these forums will be received by the specified User’s account. Deedly has no obligation to monitor the private messaging system. Deedly reserves the right, however, at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation or governmental request, or to edit, or remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, that in the sole discretion of Deedly are objectionable or in violation of this privacy policy or the terms and conditions governing the User’s use of Deedly.

Links. Deedly may contain links to other Web sites, chat rooms, or other resources that Deedly provides for Users’ convenience (the “Linked Sites”). The Linked Sites are not under the control of Deedly, and Deedly is not responsible for the content available on any Linked Site. The Linked Sites do not imply the endorsement of material from Deedly on any Linked Site, and Deedly expressly disclaims all liability with regard to Users’ access to such Linked Sites. Access to any Web sites linked to Deedly is at Users’ own risk.

Commitment to Data Security. Deedly will store and process Data in accordance with industry best practices. This includes appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to secure Data from unauthorized access, disclosure, and use. Deedly will conduct periodic risk assessments and remediate any identified security vulnerabilities in a timely manner. Deedly will also have a written incident response plan, to include prompt notification to Users and contracted agencies in the event of a security or privacy incident, as well as best practices for responding to a breach of PII. Deedly agrees to share its incident response plan upon request.

Third Parties. Deedly may at times rely on one or more subcontractors to perform services affected by this Policy and may be required to share Data with such subcontractors. Deedly agrees to share the names of these subcontractors with User upon request. All subcontractors and successor entities of Deedly will be subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Changes to the Privacy Policy. Deedly may occasionally amend this Privacy Policy to reflect company and customer feedback. Deedly reserves the right to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time. If Deedly materially changes its use of Users’ personal information, Deedly will announce such a change on Deedly, and will also note it in this Privacy Policy. The effective date of this Privacy Policy is stated below. If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact us by e-mail at Effective date: November 1, 2018.
