ClassCloud Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last modified on July 30th, 2019.


This privacy policy describes the information we collect via the ClassCloud and affiliated websites and social media accounts, and how we collect and use that information.

Personal Information

Personal information is recorded information about an identifiable individual. Personal information includes things such as an individual's name, address, birth date, email address and phone number.


When you send us electronic mail, we collect your email address and your message so that we may reply to you. We recommend that sensitive personal information not be sent unencrypted over the Internet or by e-mail.

When you visit our website, the web server collects a small amount of information to facilitate its operation. For example, the website advanced search function collects information to remember the information you submitted for the search. IP addresses are collected to identify unauthorized attempts to change information or damage our systems. We do not capture or store personal information such as your name or home address while you visit and use our website.

When you post a comment on our blog, we ask you for your name and e-mail address. We collect your e-mail in the event we need to contact you about your comment. Your personal information (name, comment, and email address) will be stored on ClassCloud’s secure server as stated in our social media policy. Comments that violate our comment policy will be deleted. We moderate the blog and reserve the right not to publish your comment. We will delete your personal information if we do not post your comment. See our social media policy for more information about our blog and commenting policies.

ClassCloud also utilizes Twitter, Facebook and other public, third-party social media providers. Personal information that you might provide to these is not hosted on our server. We recommend that our social media followers familiarize themselves with the social media provider’s terms of service and privacy policies.

Web Analytics

ClassCloud uses Matomo, an open source third party software to analyze non-identifiable web traffic data with the purpose of improving the services we offer. ClassCloud owns and stores the data that is generated on its secure web server. The collected data will not be shared with any other party for any other purpose.

ClassCloud may collect the following information to assist us with improving the website:

  • The pages accessed on our site and links you clicked on
  • The date and time you visited the site
  • If you use our advanced search tool, the search terms you used
  • The referring site (if any) through which you arrived at this site
  • Your operating system (e.g. Windows XP, Mac OS X)
  • The type of web browser you use (e.g. Internet Explore, Mozilla Firefox)

IP addresses are anonymized so that they cannot be used to identify individuals. Our web analytics will also respect any "do not track" setting you might have set on your browser.

Our website may use session cookies which are stored in temporary memory and are not retained after you sign out or close the browser session.


A cookie is a small file containing certain pieces of information that a website creates when you visit the site. It can track how and when you use a site, which site you visited immediately before, and it can store that information about you. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. There are two types of cookies, session cookies and persistent cookies. Our website may use session cookies which are stored in temporary memory and are not retained after you sign out or close the browser session.


ClassCloud only uses the personal information collected from our sites for the same purpose that it was collected. ClassCloud will not use your personal information for another purpose without your consent.


ClassCloud may only disclose your personal information if it is done for the same purpose that it was collected. ClassCloud will not share your personal information for another purpose unless ClassCloud has your consent to do so. In limited circumstances that are outlined in section 33 of FIPPA, ClassCloud may be required, or authorized, by law to disclose your personal information to another party.


Our website contains links to other sites. When clicking on a link, we encourage you to examine the site's privacy policy and make your own decision regarding the information provided.

Business Transaction

If ClassCloud is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your Personal Information may be transferred. We will provide notice before your Personal Information is transferred and becomes subject to a different Privacy Policy.

Children's Privacy

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If you are a parent or guardian and are aware that your child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we discover that a Child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our servers immediately.


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.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

ClassCloud may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on our sites. You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes.
