Privacy Policy


Acceptance

Listen Innovation, Inc. (Listen Innovation) feels strongly about protecting your privacy and the privacy of a student. Listen Innovation WILL NOT sell, trade, or assign any unaggregated, personally-identifiable personal information that it collects to third parties outside of Listen Innovation. If you have any questions, concerns or comments regarding this privacy policy, you may contact us at the email and address posted at the end of this policy statement. We are committed to addressing your privacy or security questions or concerns.

1. Information Collected by Listenwise Website

In order for you to participate in the Listenwise Website and/or other Listen Innovation products (the "Programs"), you must register on Listenwise. This registration process will require you to provide your name, email addresses, school and class information of the students you're registering. We call this information "Registration Information."

2. How Listenwise will use the information collected from you

Email Address: Email addresses will serve as your username on Listenwise. The email addresses may be used to send a confirmation email at registration, as well as information and updates to the Programs. We will also email weekly current events roundup highlighting new content on the Web Site. We may use the email addresses as an additional means of communicating with you and your students about the Programs and Listenwise, including notifying you of updates to the Web Site or its related policies.

Relationship to Student: A teacher's relationship to the student will be used for profile and tracking purposes and to assign activities to a student.

Secondary Uses: Registration Information and other information may be used by us for demographic profiling, statistical analysis, and targeted advertising, although in such cases, the information will be aggregated as ANONYMOUS statistical information.

Participation History: The details of any order you place and the Programs you or a student choose will be collected for customer service, marketing and business purposes.

3. Information Listenwise Web Site collects directly from a student

Listenwise Web Site collects information directly from a student, over the Internet, in the form of the interactions that a student makes when participating in the Programs. We refer to the data resulting from such participation, which includes but is not limited to data on when a student starts and stops a lesson, the responses a student makes to questions asked, the timing of a student's student, a student's choice of character and customizations, and the choice of lessons to play as "Performance Data." We will use Performance Data to (1) measure a student's performance in each lesson of the Listenwise Programs and to adapt the Programs to his or her education needs, (2) analyze a student's Performance Data, and provide the student and the associated parent/educator with periodic progress reports about a student's performance in the Programs, and (3) improve the Programs. When we need to collect information that is not Performance Data directly from a student such as their email address for registering on the Web Site, Listen Innovation will seek your authorization prior to collecting such additional information from a student. Prior to creating class codes for distribution to students, we require teachers to accept Our Privacy Policy as an authorized school official providing Consent on behalf of minor students. In addition, we may aggregate a student's Performance Data with the Performance Data of other students participating in the Programs for marketing and other business related purposes. Aggregate information will be ANONYMOUS and will not identify a student.

4. Opting-out of providing the information we request

Because the Listenwise Programs are individualized and customized for each student, all the information we request from you and students are required for you and a student to participate in the Programs, with the exception of certain information to be used for our marketing purposes to you only. At any time, you may revoke your consent to allowing a student to participate in the Listenwise Programs or refuse to allow Listen Innovation to further use or collect a student's personal information. Any ANONYMOUS performance data will be retained, but we will no longer use any identifiable information regarding you or a student that you have provided. However, if you do any of the foregoing, you and a student will not be able to participate in the Programs.

5. Reviewing and changing your information

You may review and modify your Registration Information at any time by accessing our website using your password, and sending us a support mail with a request to change it.

6. Consent

In order to use the Programs, you and/or your student(s)are asked to submit certain personal information about yourselves and to authorize Listen Innovation to use that information in a limited number of ways. We ask you and/or the student to ensure that the Parent/Educator has reviewed and submitted a Consent as part of the registration process, which will require you to consent to our collection and use of information directly from a student over the Internet as described above. Prior to creating class codes for distribution to students, we require teachers to accept Our Privacy Policy as an authorized school official on behalf of minor students.

7. Password Protection

You and your students will be assigned a password each to access the Programs through our website, and this password will be used to allow you and the students to use the Programs. The passwords should be kept confidential. Your password will also allow you to review and change the information we collect about you and students.

8. Protecting your information

No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Listen Innovation has multiple security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control. Please note that this Program is hosted in North America. If you are visiting from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S./Canadian laws, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States/Canada, which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU or other regions and by providing your personal data you consent to the use of your personal data for the uses identified above in accordance with this Privacy Policy; and the transfer of your personal data to the United States/Canada as indicated above.

9. Your information and third parties

Except as provided in this Privacy Policy, Listen Innovation WILL NOT disclose the information that it obtains from you to third parties without your express written permission, or where we believe, in good faith, that the law requires us to disclose the information. Listen Innovation WILL NOT sell, trade, or assign any unaggregated personal information that it collects to third parties outside of Listen Innovation. We, however, may aggregate the information that we collect from users of our website to create demographic profiles and performance profiles regarding the progress of students who use the Programs. Listen Innovation may share aggregated information with marketing professionals, or potential investors. This aggregated information will be compiled and reported in the form of ANONYMOUS group statistics only. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, as Listen Innovation continues to develop its business, it might sell some or all of its assets. In such transactions, customer information is generally one of the transferred business assets. An acquiring company would be required to protect all information that Listen Innovation collects from users of our website and Programs in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

10. Unsolicited third-party promotional emails

Listen Innovation will not send you unsolicited third-party promotional emails.

11. Use of cookies

As a standard practice, Listenwise Service uses "cookies".

Cookies enable us to track usage of our website. In addition, cookies are required for the operation of the Programs.

12. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act

Congress has enacted a law called the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) which is designed to protect children's privacy during use of the Internet. Listen Innovation has implemented practices consistent with the guidelines provided by the Federal Trade Commission to date. Listen Innovation will never knowingly request personally identifiable information or private content from anyone under the age of 13 without parental or educator consent. LISTEN INNOVATION DOES NOT SHARE CHILDRENS PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES. If you are a parent, legal guardian, or educator of a user under 13 you may, at any time, revoke your consent to allow a student to use the Programs under your subscription, refuse to allow Listen Innovation to further use or collect a student's personal information, or direct Listen Innovation to delete all identifiable information regarding a student that you have provided. To do so, please contact us at the contact information below. However, if you do any of the foregoing, a student will not be able to use the Programs. If you would like more information about COPPA, please go to http://www.ftc.gov/enforcement/rules/rulemaking-regulatory-reform-proceedings/childrens-online-privacy-protection-rule.

13. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Listen Innovation is fully compliant with FERPA. Specifically:

  1. Any sensitive online information is transmitted over secure channels.
  2. All student data are stored in ways that are not publicly accessible.
