Privacy Policy



















PRIVACY POLICY

StudyDog is committed to protecting you and your student’s online privacy. This document provides information about how we protect you and your student’s privacy when using our teacher and student online websites and reading products.

StudyDog does not require you to share any personal information in order to visit our web sites. We do not collect any personal information from you unless it is provided voluntarily. We will not disclose any of your personal information to third parties.

StudyDog is very sensitive to protecting your student’s privacy. We will never contact a student directly and we do not allow students to enter any personal information in any of our products. To the extent that we require student information in order to be able to use our products, all such information will be collected solely from teachers and/or parents. For example, we use each student’s grade to set a starting point for our Pre-Test.

StudyDog is especially committed to the privacy of students who are under 13 years of age. To help us in this commitment the government has provided a special Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (or "COPPA") law. StudyDog complies fully with this law. You can read more about this law at:

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
http://www.ftc.gov/ogc/coppa1.htm

The information we gather about students is solely used in the use of our reading program and is never provided to third parties. You may access and view this information at any time using your teacher account in the StudyDog Dashboard. Using your StudyDog teacher account you may modify or delete your student’s information at any time. If you have any questions about changing your schools or students information, please email us at:

customersupport@studydog.com

You may also request to have any and all StudyDog information about you or your students deleted at any time by contacting us at:

We will need to gather proof-of-identity information to perform this function.

An additional area of concern for student’s privacy is access to inappropriate information on the Internet. To ensure student’s protection the government has again provided a specific law called the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) to address concerns about access to offensive content over the Internet on school computers. StudyDog fully complies with the CIPA law. StudyDog does not display any advertisements on our website, or in any of our products. StudyDog does not provide electronic mail, chat rooms, and other forms of direct electronic communications to students. These features protect both you and your students by not allowing external contact or links to outside websites that could gather information or provide inappropriate material outside of the intent of our privacy policy. You can read more about this law at:

To protect your schools online data, StudyDog implements a number of security safeguards. Our servers are located in a hardened facility with severely restricted access. Our servers are protected by various levels of hardware and software security measures to include firewalls, virus protected, and intrusion detection. We use a monitored security service to continually provide protection against the latest security threats. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to safely transfer sensitive information, and we further encrypt sensitive information such as usernames and passwords.

We communicate with teachers and administrators on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in accordance with the teacher’s wishes.

Only StudyDog employees who need access to information in the functioning of our products, such as customer support, have access to students personally identifiable information, and only StudyDog employees are allowed to access or alter any information stored on the StudyDog servers. The StudyDog servers are entirely self-managed by StudyDog and are not accessible to third parties outside of general access for maintenance and security purposes. In no situation is access to student’s personal identifiable information allowed to anyone but StudyDog.

You can help maintain the privacy and security of your StudyDog information by keeping your sign-in information secure and by choosing non-obvious passwords. You should also not share this information with others.

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
