Sensitive Personal Information
It is up to you as a parent to decide whether to tell us to process "Sensitive Personal Information” about your student. Sensitive Personal Information includes
- User credentials such as usernames and passwords
- Biometric data and genetics
- Ethnic or racial origins
- Precise geolocations
- Religious or philosophical beliefs
- Information about a consumer’s sexual orientation, sex life, or health
- Contents of a consumer’s text, mail, and email
- Driver’s license numbers

Someone could use the things listed above to find and harm a student. Other things that are not listed here may be Sensitive Personal Information.
If you gather Sensitive Personal Information about your child, you give us explicit consent to process the sensitive information. You are promising us that you have legal authority and consent to gather that information. It is up to you to look at the materials before you assign them.
We show any data collected to all educators associated with a student who have access to the same deck. If it is a public deck, any of these people can see it. If it is a shared private deck, only people you share the deck with can see it. For example, if you use Colleagues to share a student, all teachers and tutors with whom you share that student can see how well the student did with a deck. Do not share your students unless you are willing to share all the information associated with the students. You can revoke Colleagues in app.
We only use Sensitive Data you collect from students as instructed by you.
