Privacy Policy for Student Data

This Privacy Policy for Student Data explains how Dogl AB (“we” or “Dogl”) collects, protects, and processes Student Data.

Dogl Services (the “Services”), as per the Terms of Service, may be used by schools, colleges, universities, educators, or similar third party providers (“Schools”). Students at such Schools may use Dogl Services in their capacity as a student, and such a student is referred to as a “Student” in this policy.

“Student Data” is considered to be personal information that is directly connected to an identifiable Student and may include “educational records” as defined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), 20 U.S.C. § 1232(g).

This Privacy Policy for Student Data also outlines our compliance with respect to the applicable requirements of the the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), the California Student Online Personal Information Protection Act (“SOPIPA”), the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), and other applicable laws.

There may be different contractual terms or privacy policies in place with some of our School customers. Such other terms or policies may supersede this Student Data Privacy Statement for information collected or processed under those terms. If you have any questions as to which legal agreement or privacy policy controls the collection and use of your information, please contact your School or us.

1. Dogl Commitments

Dogl commits to:

  • not use or share Student Data for the purposes of marketing or advertising,

  • not sell Student Data to third parties,

  • maintain data security policies designed to protect Student Data,

  • delete or de-identify Student Data at the request of the School, for data that pertains to the Student’s role as a student at the School,

  • clearly disclose data policies and practices,

  • not make material changes to our Privacy Policies or Terms of Service without first notifying the school.

2. Data Collected

Dogl provides the Services to Schools to improve classroom instruction and student learning outcomes. To provide these Services to a School, we may collect or have access to Student Data that is provided by the School or by the student. The type of information we collect will depend on how the School uses the Services, but could include the student’s first and last name, email address, class assignment data, and other classroom content. Only students who have been provided an invitation code, or added by a teacher, can be associated with a School account.

Only accounts set up with an invitation code or associated with a course by the addition of their email address to a class list are considered to be student accounts. Accounts that are not explicitly linked to a course are considered to be private accounts and subject to the standard Terms of Service and Privacy Policy and any requests for deletion or similar actions will need to be made by the account holder.

3. Use of Student Data

We use Student Data to provide the Dogl Services to the School and for other limited purposes permitted by our agreements with the Schools, and Terms of Service, such as to evaluate, improve, and develope our products and services. All Student Data is owned by the Schools. We do not use Student Data for marketing or advertising purposes.

4. Sharing of Student Data with Third Parties

Dogl only shares Student Data in the following circumstances:

  • As needed to perform the Dogl Services and/or at the direction of a School and as authorized by our contract with the School. For example, information including Student Data, will be shared between and among authorized School users, such as teachers and administrators.

  • With our trusted vendors, third party service providers and other individuals who perform services on our behalf, but only if such providers have a need to access such information for the purpose of carrying out their work for us. For example, Google provides Dogl with sign-in services, and a user’s email address may then be shared with Google to allow the user to sign in.

  • We may share aggregate or anonymized data (including personal data that has been stripped of personally identifying characteristics) with third parties, but will do so only in such a way that no individual may reasonably be identified.

  • We may be required to share information with law enforcement or other third parties when compelled to do so by court order or other legal process, to comply with statutes or regulations, to enforce our Terms of Service, or if we believe in good faith that the disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property or personal safety of our employees, shareholders, users or visitors.

  • We may share Student Data in the event of a corporate sale, merger, acquisition, dissolution or similar event. In such an event the School will be notified in advance of the event and given the opportunity to discontinue use of the Services, unless the new owner intends to maintain and provide the Services as a going concern, and provided that the new owner has agreed to data privacy standards no less stringent than our own.

5. Use of Anonymized Data

We may use data which has been de-identified and/or aggregated for product development, research analytics, and other purposes, including for the purpose of analyzing, improving, or marketing the Dogl Services. If Dogl publicly discloses or shares with third parties (e.g., in marketing materials, published research, analytics, or in application development) information that is derived from Student Data, then such data will be aggregated and/or anonymized to reasonably avoid identification of a specific School or individual.

6. Modification and Deletion of Data

Some Student Data may be accessed, updated, and deleted by logging into your account. For complete deletion of all data associated with a particular Teacher or School please contact support[...] to request assistance in order to ensure all records have been fully erased.

7. Children’s Data

Our Services are not directed to children under the age of 13, and may not be used by children under the age of 13.

8. Changes and Updates

  1. Updates. This Privacy Policy may be revised periodically and this will be reflected in the “date last modified” set forth below. Your continued use of the Dogl Services following such an update constitutes your agreement to the revised Privacy Policy. We will use our best efforts to provide each School at least 30 days notice of a Privacy Policy change that may involve collecting, using, storing, or sharing Student Data in a materially different manner than was disclosed in our previous Privacy Policy, so that the School has sufficient time to evaluate the change in practice. If you do not choose to accept the changes, you may opt-out by deleting your account before the changes take effect.

  2. Previous versions. You can request earlier versions of this policy by contacting support[...]
