Privacy Policy

CLARA Classroom Privacy Policy

Student privacy is incredibly important to us. This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which CLARA Classroom collects, uses, maintains and discloses personally identifiable information in records ("Student Records") collected from users ("User") of the website ("Site"). 

Personal Identification Information

We collect personal identification information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our Site, create an account, progress through the video course content, or post on their classroom community board. Users will only be asked for the first name, last name, and email address to set up their account. We never collect sensitive information such as student addresses, social security number, or dates of birth. 

If a student posts content on their class community board (text, images, photographs, videos, messages, comment, links, or any other kind of content) using the Service, the information contained in the posting will be stored in our Service. Content will only be able to be viewed by the teacher and students in the class group.

Non-Personal Identification Information

We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users' means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.

Web Browser Cookies

Our Site may use "cookies" to enhance Users' experience. A User's web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. Users may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert them when cookies are being sent, but this may result in some parts of the Site not functioning properly.

How We Use Collected Information

CLARA Classroom collects Users’ personal information for improving the User’s experience on the site. The User’s site activity is collected so that teachers can monitor student’s course progress when engaging in the content remotely. We may use information in the aggregate to understand how our Users as a group use the services and resources provided on our Site and so that we may improve the Site.

Property and Control of Student Data

All student records and data continue to be the property of and under the control of the local educational agency. 

How we Protect Your Information

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices, and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information, and data stored on our Site.

Sharing your Personal Information

We do not sell, trade, or rent Users' personal identification information to others. We will not allow unrelated third parties to use your personal information for any reason without your consent. 

Procedure for Unauthorized Records Disclosure

In the event of a breach or unauthorized disclosure of student records that would be subject to disclosure under applicable federal or state law has occurred, CLARA Classroom will take prompt and appropriate steps to mitigate further breach or release of student records, provide notice to the affected User promptly and without reasonable delay, and work with the affected User to provide information and assistance necessary to comply with any notification to parents, legal guardians, or students, as is required by applicable law.


We are committed to working with our Users to comply with laws, rules, and regulations governing the use and protection of Student Records, including the Children Online Privacy Protection (COPPA) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and their implementing regulations, applicable state laws, and statutes governing Student Records we receive from Users. As such, CLARA Classroom is committed to protecting the security, confidentiality, and integrity of Student Records that we receive from Users, as well as to protecting against unauthorized access or anticipated threats.

Under the United States Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"), verifiable parental consent is needed to collect, use, or disclose personal information (e.g., full name and email address) from each User under 13 years old. In accordance with COPPA, a teacher or school administrator may act as the agent of the parent or legal guardian of a Student and provide consent on behalf of the parent for CLARA Classroom’s collection, use, and disclosure of the Student’s personal information. By enrolling a Student under 13 to use the Service, the School provides such consent to us and agrees that the Students’ activities while on the Service are subject to our Terms. This Privacy Policy does not govern any School's collection, use, or disclosure of a Student User’s personal information through the Service, and we are not responsible for any such collection, use, or disclosure. 

Contract Termination/Completion

Following expiration or termination of the agreement under which the User acquired access to the CLARA Classroom web-based products or services, CLARA Classroom will destroy or, if agreed, return to the User, the Student Records in its possession within a commercially reasonable period of time. At any point, teachers or administrators are able to soft-delete or permanently delete student accounts and data. For clarity, data generated by CLARA Classroom that is in aggregate, or that is anonymized (i.e., personally identifiable information has been removed) may be retained by CLARA Classroom and used for product improvement purposes.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy at any time. When we do, we will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page. If we change the policy in a material manner, for example, if we seek to use personal information in a materially different way than we had previously, we will provide at least 30 days’ notice to you so that you have sufficient time to evaluate the change in practice. Of course, you can always opt out by deleting your account before the changes take effect.

Your Acceptance of These Terms

Unless you have entered into your own school or district contract with CLARA Classroom, you signify your acceptance of this Privacy Policy by using this site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.
