Privacy Policy

Effective Date: August 19, 2019

Your privacy is extremely important to us.

It is StudentVUE+’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. This Privacy Policy applies to https://svue.itsryan.org (hereinafter, "us", "we", or "https://svue.itsryan.org"). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. We have adopted this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and conditions posted on our Website, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Website. Depending on your activities when visiting our Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

Handling of Educational Records

Because StudentVUE+ is designed to connect to and display information from Synergy servers, it needs to make requests and access data from such servers. The following detail what information is accessed, stored, and when requests are made to Synergy servers.

Requests to Synergy Servers
A request is made using the user's credentials whenever the user signs in or uses the StudentVUE+ dashboard. Additionally, if the user has opted to enable the Notifier service, requests are periodically made on a regular basis in order to check for updates. Such requests are not made unless the user explicitly opts in and manually enables the service, and can be disabled at any time. Furthermore, due to the potential privacy concerns, new users as of build 815+ cannot opt-in to notifier by default. We do not want to be liable for any district issues from StudentVUE+ automatically accessing their systems, so we've made the tough decision to proactively turn Notifier into a highly restricted, approval-only service to help reduce liability issues - it's better than having to shut down this service.

Other than what's listed above, no additional requests will ever be made to Synergy on the user's behalf.

Educational Records Stored
Note that if a user does not agree to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy during the initial sign-up screen, no data is stored.
After the user signs up and gives written consent (digitally or on paper), the following data may be saved from Synergy and stored on our servers:

Everything else, including but not limited to the items listed below, are never stored on our servers or even accessed by StudentVUE+:

You can contact us anytime to wipe any data we have of you, as listed under "removing your data".

Note that your browser and/or app is designed to cache your full gradebook data so that it's accessible offline (as well as to avoid overloading StudentVUE+ servers). This data is only stored locally on your device and is never transmitted to our server. If you wish to remove such data, you simply need to clear your browser data for StudentVUE+.

Website Visitors

Similar to other websites, StudentVUE+ collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. StudentVUE+’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how StudentVUE+’s visitors use its website. StudentVUE+ may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. This is further elaborated under "Aggregated Statistics".

StudentVUE+ also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://svue.itsryan.org blog posts. StudentVUE+ only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to StudentVUE+’s websites choose to interact with StudentVUE+ in ways that require StudentVUE+ to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that StudentVUE+ gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

When you sign up and create an account on StudentVUE+, your account is linked to your regular StudentVUE™ account. You are giving StudentVUE+ access to any information available under your standard StudentVUE account, and portions of it may be stored on our servers. For example, a list of item IDs that you've seen are stored in order to allow StudentVUE+ to tell you if there is a new assignment.

If you choose to use the Notifier service in order to recieve notifications when a new assignment is put in, additional data is also stored server side to allow StudentVUE+ to check StudentVUE on your behalf and then notify you if there is a new assignment. You'll also need to provide at least one method of contact, whether it's an email address or a phone number.

Specific details on what is collected and what is not collected is listed under "Handling of Educational Records".

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Removing Your Data

Under normal circumstances, most if not all StudentVUE+ accounts are archived, and then deleted after a long period of inactivity (>1 year). However, this is not a guarantee that all of your data will be purged once you leave StudentVUE+.

There is currently no way to programmatically remove all of your data. However, if you contact us via email at ryan [at] itsryan.org, you may request for your account closed and your data purged. If you choose to do this, we will make sure all of your information is removed from the system.

Links To External Sites

Our Service may contain links to external sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site you visit.

We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.
