Personal Information: “Personal Information” is information that identifies you as an individual or relates to an identifiable individual. ParentLocker collects personal information about parents, students and staff, only where that student’s school or district has contracted with ParentLocker to collect personal information for the use and benefit of the school. ParentLocker requires schools to attain parent and teacher consent for the uploading of personal student and parent information onto the platform. This information is not shared outside of the school or with any third parties except those needed for the provision of the service as outlined in this policy. Personal information will be wiped/destroyed from ParentLocker servers within 30 days of a written request submitted by the school or within 90 days of the expiration of the school's service agreement with ParentLocker.
Other Information: As true of most Web Sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We may link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information. We do not share identifiable information with third parties other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below. From time to time, ParentLocker may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website, or by making it available to teachers or school administrators. Data is stored on servers located in the United States.
Use of information: Information on individual usage of the system, including but not limited to individual IP addresses, may be analyzed on a case-specific basis to resolve a technical difficulty or to assist in resolving or investigating any misuse of the service; also, such individual usage information may be furnished to your school if your school requests such information to assist in the investigation of fraudulent, abusive, or criminal activity or any other use of ParentLocker that violates your school's rules or policies.
We reserve the right to disclose your or your child's personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
Internet Security: ParentLocker uses industry-standard technologies to protect the privacy and online security of user data. For example, SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption is used for all communication between the internet and ParentLocker servers. You will know that SSL is working when you see the presence of an image of a closed lock or solid key in the bottom bar of your browser window. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and “hacker-proof,” and ParentLocker cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information managed by the site, whether transmitted to ParentLocker by you, your school, or your teacher. ParentLocker shall not be liable if a security breach occurs, if the site malfunctions, or if information is misused or mismanaged in any way to your detriment or the detriment of a third party, whether by ParentLocker, your school, your teacher, or an unauthorized third party.

United States Education Privacy Laws: ParentLocker in its role as a provider of school software receives personal information and other data contained in student records as well as directly from students and parents of students. Only information that is needed for ParentLocker to perform services, which are outsourced to ParentLocker by schools and districts, is disclosed to ParentLocker. These disclosures are authorized by the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). ParentLocker considers Student Data to be strictly confidential and do not use Student Data for any purpose other than improving and providing our products and services to the school/district or on the school/districts’ behalf. Our collection, use, and sharing of Student Data is governed by our contracts with the Educational Agencies, the provisions of FERPA, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), and other applicable state and federal laws and regulations that relate to the collection and use of personal information of students. If you have questions about reviewing, modifying, or deleting personal information of a student, please contact the relevant school/district directly.
Canada: The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) is a Canadian federal law that applies to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information in the course of commercial activities in all Canadian provinces as supplemented by substantially similar provincial privacy laws in Alberta, British Columbia and Québec. PIPEDA also applies to international and interprovincial transfers of personal information. This policy is designed to comply with PIPEDA.
