Welcome, and thank you for your interest in LearnSprout, Inc. ("LearnSprout", "us", "we" or "our") and our Service, as described in the LearnSprout Terms of Service.

This LearnSprout Privacy Policy (the "Privacy Policy") describes the Information that you trust us with and how we handle the Information in terms of the steps we take to protect your Information. By using the Service, you consent to the privacy practices described in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the LearnSprout Terms of Service (the "Terms of Service") that can be found at: https://www.learnsprout.com/terms. Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given to them in the Terms of Service.

For purposes of this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service, "you" or "your" means:

  1. the individual who is agreeing to the Terms of Service and this Privacy Policy, and registering for an Account with LearnSprout on behalf of your Subscribing Organization (as defined below);

  2. any other individual authorized to use the Service on behalf of the Subscribing Organization and who uses the Service; and

At LearnSprout, we take data security and the privacy of your students very seriously. Protecting personally identifiable information ("PII") of your students is at the very core of what we do. Once the connection to LearnSprout is made, your Information is secured on a remote, dedicated server. Your Information is kept separate from other Subscribing Organizations, so there is no possible way for other LearnSprout customers to view your students' PII. LearnSprout adheres to all federal and state laws in regard to student data. LearnSprout does not share, sell, or use school personally identifiable information for marketing purposes.
