We will not share any information collected through our Services with third parties, except as described below. We do not share Personal Information with third parties for their own marketing purposes.

9. Personal Information

a) Service Provider

We may share Personal Information with third-party service providers only if necessary for them to perform services on our behalf, including without limitation service providers who provide email services, process credit card payments, and provide services in support of our internal operations.

b) Corporate Affiliates and Corporate Business Transactions

We may share Personal Information with our parent company and other affiliated companies. If we enter into a business transition such as a merger, consolidation, acquisition, sale of assets, joint venture, securities offering, bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation, or dissolution, your Personal Information may be among the assets we transfer. You acknowledge and consent that such transfers are permitted by this Privacy Policy, and that any acquirer of ours or that acquirer’s affiliates may continue to collect and use your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

c) Legal Compliance and Security

We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information when required to do so by applicable law—for example, in response to a court order, subpoena, legal process, or other claim or inquiry. We also may disclose Personal Information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the rights, property, or safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Service, or to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Services and applicable laws, or as otherwise required or permitted by law or legal requirements.

d) Consent

We may share your Personal Information with a third party if you consent to the sharing.

e) Authorized Educational Institutions and Third Parties They Authorize.

We may disclose the information we collect about a student to authorized employees or representatives of the student’s educational institution. When, at the request of the educational institution, we acquire assessment or other information, including students’ Personal Information, from a third-party source, we will treat such information with the same confidentiality and security safeguards as though it were provided directly by the educational institution. Additional agreements may be required by the third party to authorize transmission of such information to us.

An educational institution may from time to time request that we provide the information we collect about students to third parties of its choosing. We will do so only with written authorization from the educational institution that acknowledges that we are providing that information as an educational institution’s agent, and that once the information is received by the third party, we no longer have any control over the use or disposition of the information. If a written request to disclose the Personal Information of students to a third party is provided to us, the educational institution releases us from all responsibility over the use or disposition of such information.

Upon written request by an educational institution, we will destroy any information collected from students for educational institutions who no longer participate in our Services. We will also provide written verification that the data has been destroyed as requested. If an educational institution has not used any Service for a period of ten years, upon request, we will provide written notice that the student information pertaining to their educational institution will be destroyed unless the educational institution requests the records be kept.

10. Non Personal Information

This Privacy Policy does not limit our use of any Non Personal Information, and we reserve the right to use and disclose such information to third parties at our discretion. However, in the event that we wish to release Non Personal Information that identifies a school or educational institution by name, we will enter into a separate agreement with a school, a purchaser to authorize release and publication.

12. Account Creation and Student Login Credentials

As described in our general Privacy Policy set forth above, we do not allow children to purchase or otherwise subscribe to any Service: our account creation feature is intended strictly for adult teacher or parent use, and we take measures to make this apparent in order to prevent children from submitting Personal Information to our Service in this manner.

An adult teacher or parent purchaser of any Service may open an account for a child by creating the child’s student login credentials. We collect student user credentials each time a child log in to the student portal to access the Services. In addition, the student’s user credentials are collected and displayed on the online classroom roster in the teacher portal. We will not use this information for any purposes other than authenticating the student’s login and facilitating student access to the Services. Our staff is not authorized to disclose student login information; information regarding student login credentials is strictly controlled by the teacher.

13. Closing Accounts

If you no longer wish to use our Services, you may close your account by contacting us. Adults with teacher access may remove a student account by deleting the student from their classroom roster. Adults with parent access may do this by contacting the account holder, such as the school, to request deletion of their child’s information. The school may contact Kampala Smart School at admin@kampalasmartschool.com/

If you close your account, we have no obligation to retain your information, and we may delete any or all of your information without liability. However, we may retain information related to you if we believe it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, if required by law, or for legitimate business purposes, such as analysis of aggregated, Non Personal Information, account recovery, auditing our records, and enforcing our rights and obligations under our agreements. We disclaim any liability in relation to the deletion or retention (subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy) of information or any obligation not to delete your information.

14. How We Protect Information

We use reasonable technical, administrative, and physical security measures designed to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access to your information, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect. These measures include, but are not limited to, the use of encryption, physical access controls, information access controls, and anti-virus and anti-malware software.

Additionally, your account is protected by the password you use to access your online account, and we urge you to take steps to keep your username and password safe. Teacher and parent users are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their usernames and passwords, including student usernames and passwords. If you feel your password or a password of a student user has been compromised, you should change it immediately. When you are finished using our Services, you should log out of your account and exit your browser. Teacher and parent users are also responsible for notifying us immediately of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of login credentials. Any fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal activity on your account may be reported to appropriate law enforcement agencies by us.

Please be aware that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us on or through the Services and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, loss or inadvertent disclosure of your information.

Any non-material changes will take effect immediately upon posting of an updated Privacy Policy on our Services. You should periodically check our Privacy Policy for updates. However, there may be cases where changes to the Privacy Policy may be more significant. In such cases, we will first provide notice to users who are affected.
