 3 - Privacy Policies Including Student Users of the Site


It is our policy at EdTechLens to protect the privacy of those who visit our website and use our services. The public area of the website, EdTechLens.com, is where parents and educators learn about our program and pay to license it. It is not intended for use by minors. Registered users who have subscribed to the program use the private area of the website which is accessible only to licensed users. Users include children under the age of 13. Our privacy policies are more stringent in this private area, as detailed below.

This policy explains what information we collect through the products and how we may use, disclose and share that information.  By using the site and services, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.  This policy may be updated as our company and products change.  When the policy changes, we will post a notice on our home page and at the top of this Privacy Policy page, and by any other means as required by law.  If you have any questions about this policy or our privacy practices, please contact us at info@edtechlens.com.


EdTechLens.com Public Pages Privacy Policies

The public pages at EdTechLens.com reside in the area of the website, where parents and educators learn about our program and pay to subscribe to it.

The EdTechLens.com website is intended for use by parents and teachers.  We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children, and we do not include links to any third party websites or social sharing tools in areas of the site intended for children.  

Collection of Personal Information

In certain areas of our site and services we collect information from schools and individuals who wish to participate in certain features.  For example, if you wish to subscribe to our newsletter, we will ask you to provide us with your email address.  You may always unsubscribe from the newsletter by clicking on the “unsubscribe” button that appears on every email.  

You may also email us with questions about the registration process, subscription or other purchases, or to provide general feedback on our site and services.  In those cases, we will use your email only for the purpose of responding to your inquiry.

If you purchase one of our products, we will ask you to provide your full name and email address. You will be given the option to register at this time or to purchase without registration.  Either way, you will be asked to provide your full name, street address, email address, telephone number and credit card information.  This information is used to process your order and for processes related to your use of the course. This usage includes tracking your course so we can answer your inquiries, notify you when your subscription is going to expire, and other internal record-keeping purposes.

A name and applicable grade level for student(s) will also be requested if you are licensing the program. A full name is not required. However, a full name or some unique identifier must be used if the student will use the program again in subsequent years and wishes to access data created in earlier years.

Additional usage may be deemed necessary in the coming months but the purpose of usage of your email address and student grade level(s) will be to increase the efficiency of program usage for all involved and not for marketing purposes.

Users who have questions regarding their purchase may fill out a support ticket to receive technical or other assistance.  You will be asked to provide your full name, email address and information regarding the nature of your question.  You will be given the option to also provide us with a phone number.  This information will only be used for the purpose of responding to your concerns.

Disclosure of Personal Information

As a general policy, EdTechLens does not sell, disclose or provide third-parties with Personal Information about visitors to our website or subscribers.  Personal Information, as used in this Privacy Policy, means full name, email address, street address, phone number, credit card information, student records subscriptions.  Personal Information excludes, however, Internet protocol address (“IP address”), cookies, device identifiers, URL’s for web pages, and all other technical information.  Technical and other information is discussed below in the section entitled “Non-Personal Information.”

Third Party Links and Tools:

We include links to social networking sites and other sharing tools on the pages of our site and services that are intended for parents and teachers.  Please be aware that those sites and tools have their own privacy policies and practices.  We encourage you to visit those sites to read those policies.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties.


EdTechLens.com Non-public Pages Privacy Policies

The non-public pages at EdTechLens.com reside in private area of the website; they are used for learning purposes by students and educators and are accessible only to licensed users.

Children’s Information:

Certain areas of the EdTechLens services are intended for use by students, including students under the age of 13. We do not include links to any third party websites or social sharing tools on these pages. We also do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children on these pages. Educators and parents have the option to disguise or truncate student names (e.g. First Name, Last Initial) as they enter student names into the Class List within the Class Management section of the program. 
Communication between parent or teacher and student is handled internally within the EdTechLens curriculum program, not via email sent to the student. Students take assessments and their grades are recorded in the program. Teachers or parents can review the assessments and leave comments. Students see these comments when they log in with user name and password. Additionally, students can communicate with teachers or parents via a discussion option for class discussion purposes.

We use this information to personalize the experience for users, to deliver the curriculum products, to provide teachers or parents with access to the work of individuals in their classroom, to maintain communications with those individuals, and to track student completion and achievement in the program for the purpose of program improvement.

We may also collect information provided by a student, such as responses to questions and class assignments.  This information is tied to a student’s name or another unique identifier, but no other personal identifying information, and this information is accessible only by the school administrator, teacher, or parent who has set up the classroom and to EdTechLens administrators.

Courses are managed through the Opigno system. Opigno is a Learning Management System, which is a software created by the company, Connect-i; it is a template into which the EdTechLens curriculum content has been inserted. Information entered into EdTechLens programs is accessible only by EdTechLens administrators and participating parents and educators (including teachers and school administrators); it is not accessible to Connect-i administrators or personnel.

We delete user information periodically when it is no longer needed or upon request by a teacher or parent managing a student classroom 

In the event that a teacher or parent discontinues a subscription, data that can be used to assess the effectiveness of the program will be kept. For example, students take pre-and post-tests which are used to determine student growth as they progress through the program. Also, the number of times certain pages are visited are recorded.   

If we should learn that we have inadvertently collected personally identifiable information from children, we will promptly delete it.  If you have additional questions regarding our policies and practices related to children’s information, please contact us at info@edtechlens.com


Public and Non-public pages at EdTechLens.com Shared Privacy Policies
