PRIVACY POLICY

Cashtivity provides an online application and library of Challenges dedicated to helping students with creative, real-world learning in mathematics, science and STEM.  Cashtivity is intended for use by teachers and educational organisations, public or private.  We provide our services to teachers and in the USA, to individuals aged 13 years or older.  

Cashtivity takes the protection of a user's information very seriously. Our officers, directors, employees, agents and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to access a user's personal information and are required to treat any personal information of Cashtivity's users as confidential information. In addition, Cashtivity uses certain technical, operational and physical safeguards designed to preserve the integrity and security of a user's personal information and other information we maintain in connection with the Website.

To protect our user's privacy and security, Cashtivity takes reasonable steps to verify an individual's identity before granting them access or making corrections to their personal information. Teachers who create classes in Cashtivity will receive a class code to which the teacher shares with his or her students in order to provide students with the access to collaborate on a Challenge hosted on the Website.  Teachers are encouraged to request students login through their school issued Google or Microsoft email accounts, using the single sign on service we offer.   Teachers may also direct students to create unique accounts in Cashtivity or use the guest login function.  Teachers also have access to students' progress and content through the website and may from time to time access reports. This information is provided to teachers for legitimate classroom and educational teaching purposes and for no other purpose.

When you visit or use our Website, we may collect information including personal information about you and other people that you link to, send messages to or communicate with. We may also collect information about your computers. We ask that any information that identifies you is correct, accurate and up to date and you agree that we can use this information to contact you.

The information we collect will be used to help us monitor who is accessing the Website and better understand our users so we can continually improve our educational products and services.

If your school is a registered user of the Website, we may also provide your school with reports of your school and of your use if you are participating through your school’s service.  We do not intentionally collect personal information of students under 13 years of age, however, in the event that a minor does create an account without prior parental or teacher consent, Cashtivity will take appropriate steps to delete this information.  

There may be instances where we may share certain types of information about our users with other people, however in all instances this information is for the purposes of providing and improving the educational service we provide to teachers and schools. For example, we may share information with our hosting service providers in order to provide our educational users and customers a reliable service. We may also be required to share specific information with government officials to help with regulatory matters, compliance or security.  

We also comply with specific US privacy laws including the Student Online Personal Information Protection Act (SOPIPA) in California, USA. We also intend to comply with similar state laws as they are enacted and we actively consult with privacy leaders to review the status of these laws and our operational and legal compliance with them. If you are a school or district leader and require a letter of compliance in order to purchase Cashtivity's subscriptions, please email team@cashtivity.com with your request. Cashtivity is also a proud signatory to the student privacy pledge.
