Last Updated: March 17, 2020
  1. Introduction and Acceptance.
    Classtime AG ("Classtime" or "we") appreciates your visit to this web site and all associated sites linked to www.classtime.com (collectively, the “Site”) and your interest in our services. Your privacy is important to us and we want you to feel comfortable visiting our Site. We take care to protect your personal data collected, processed and used during visits to the Site.
    This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) governs your use of the Site and the services offered on or through the Site (collectively, the “Services”) developed by Classtime. It explains the kinds of information that we collect on the Site, and how we use and protect it. It also tells you what to do if you do not want your personal information collected when you visit the site, and how you can access, correct, delete or object to the future use of personal information you have already provided. It does not apply to information collected offline or by third parties not affiliated with Classtime that the Site may link to (“Third Party Sites”). Please read this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service carefully before using the Site.
  2. Modifications.
    Classtime may update its Privacy Policy from time to time. The most current version will be posted on the Site. It is your responsibility to check this Privacy Policy periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes will mean that you accept and agree to the changes. Please refer to the Terms of Service posted on the Site to see additional terms and conditions that govern your use of the Site.
  3. Collecting Information.
    Classtime offers a web-based platform for teachers, school administrators (the “Users”) and students to collaborate and monitor progress in the classroom in real time. When providing these Services, Classtime collects both personally identifiable information (“PII”), which can be used to identify an individual user, and non-personally identifiable information (“non-PII”), as set forth below.
    • Information Collected from Users.
      • Account: When a User signs up to use our Services, we require the User to provide certain PII, such as the User’s email address. We also require the User to setup a unique password for account security purposes. A User may also provide Classtime with certain optional information at the User’s sole discretion. This information is used to enable Classtime to provide the User with access to certain areas of the Site, to personalize the Services, to process payment and to communicate with the User about the Services.
      • User Data: Our Services allow you to upload your original content related to the classroom teachings, such as questions, photos and other material (collectively, “User Data”). In addition to the User Data itself, we also collect technical data associated with the User Data, such as date stamps or geotags (known as “Metadata”).
      • Other Communication: Communications between you and Classtime, such as Services-related emails regarding account management, notices regarding technical issues or changes to the Services, some of which you cannot opt out, are collected as well.
      • Traffic Data: When the User visits the Site, Classtime collects information about that visit (known as “Traffic Data”), which is stored as anonymous, aggregate and non-PII data. Such Traffic Data includes the devices a User uses to access the Site, device information, location information, and web navigational data, subject to the permissions the User has granted. This information is compiled and analyzed for marketing purposes and to enhance the User’s experience on the Site.
      • Log Files: Classtime gathers certain information automatically and stores it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data (collectively, “Log Files”). Classtime may combine this automatically-collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve marketing, analytics, and site functionality.
      • Cookies and other technologies: Classtime uses "cookies” and other tracking technologies on certain pages of the Site to help analyze our web page flow, measure promotional effectiveness, promote trust, convenience and safety, and provide information that targets a User’s interests. "Cookies" are small files placed on the User’s hard drive. We offer certain features that are only available through the use of cookies. We also may use cookies to allow you to enter your password less frequently. A User may decline our cookies if their browser permits, although this may limit the ability to use certain features on the Site.
      • Social media features: The Site may include certain social-media features, such as the Facebook “like” button and widgets, such as the “share this” button or interactive mini-programs. These features may collect a User’s Log Files data. These features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policies of the company providing them.
    • Student Information.
      • Student information: Use of the Services does not require that Users provide any PII relating to the User’s students (the “Student”), however the user can require students to authenticate with existing accounts, upon which we will receive the minimum necessary PII of the students (name and email). To the extent Classtime does receive Student PII as part of the User Information, Classtime shall make reasonable efforts, consistent with this Privacy Policy, to maintain the confidentiality of such PII. When a Student uses our Services, Classtime collects various non-PII information about the Student, including Traffic Data and Log Files.
      • Cookies: We use "cookies" and other tracking or storing technologies for the Students’ information as well. This information helps us to identify a Student’s device(s) pursuant to providing the Services, and to optimize the Services offered by us. A Student may decline our cookies if their browser permits, although this may limit their ability to use certain features on the Site.
  4. Using Information.
    In addition to some of the specific uses of information we describe in this Privacy Policy, Classtime may use the User’s PII to provide the Services and to communicate with you. The collected PII enables Classtime to help you efficiently access your information after you sign in, to provide personalized content and information to you and others, and to develop and test new products and features. We use Traffic Data to learn more about your use of the Site and to improve the quality of the content and functionality of the Site, as well as to target our offerings to the people most interested in them based on their use of the Site. We use non-PII to monitor metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns, or to diagnose or fix technology problems. If you access our Services from a third party social platform, such as Facebook, we may share non-personal information with that platform to the extent permitted by your agreement with it and its privacy settings.
  5. Sharing Information.
    Except as described below in this Privacy Policy, Classtime does not rent, sell, or share personal information collected on the Site or through the Services with other parties or non-affiliated companies.
    • Third Party Service Providers.
      Classtime may hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions, such as maintaining databases, sending email messages, offering and developing certain features of the Services, and maintenance and security. For example, we use a customer-support tool provided by a third party service to enhance our customer service and response times to customer support requests. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the personal information that they need to perform their specific function. We may also share aggregated or anonymized information without restriction.
    • Legal Requirements.
      Classtime may disclose any collected data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation or assist government enforcement agencies, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Classtime or its Users, (iii) protect against legal liability; or (iv) protect the security or integrity of the Services.
    • Merger and Acquisitions; Bankruptcy.
      Your personal information may be provided to a party if Classtime files for bankruptcy, or there is a transfer of the assets or ownership of Classtime in connection with proposed or consummated corporate reorganizations, such as mergers, acquisitions or other change of control.
  6. Access, Correction, Opt-out.
    You have the right to (i) access personal information we hold about you and obtain a copy of that information, (ii) update or correct inaccuracies in that information, (iii) object to our use of your personal information, (iv) request deletion of your personal data from our database and (v) request that we return your personal information to you or to a third party named by you. To exercise these rights, please contact us by email at team@classtime.com. You may opt out of receiving electronic communications from us or our partners by following the instructions in those emails. All such materials sent to you will contain information about how to opt out. Please note, however, that you cannot opt out of certain messages, such as non-promotional emails regarding your account, payment, and/or use of the Services.
  7. Security.
    Your information is stored on servers located in Switzerland, either by us or by a third party acting on behalf of Classtime. By using the Site and our Services, you consent to have your data, including your personal information, processed in Switzerland. We have implemented reasonable procedural, physical and technical safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, theft or alteration as well as unauthorized access and disclosure. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet or with electronic storage, and we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you or your users submit to us.
  8. Children.
    Privacy is important to us, especially in regards to students, and we are committed to creating a safe and secure environment that children of all ages can enjoy when learning.
    Classtime does not intentionally collect personal information from anyone under the age of 13 who has not been given their parents' or school's consent. If you are under the age of 13, please consult with your parents or school, and request their consent. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13 and this information was not given with the consent of the parents or school, we will promptly delete that information.
