Pink Cat is an educational platform that assists teachers (each, a “Teacher”) and their students (each, a “Student”) in achieving their educational goals with educational games and tools to help manage classroom activities. In order to provide the Service, we may collect certain important information. As the information we collect may include sensitive data, including personal data about each Student, we aim to be transparent and clear about how we collect, use and share data.
The Service collects and processes personal data, which is information about you or that identifies you. Subject to legal, contractual and technical requirements, you may choose not to provide Pink Cat with certain data or request the deletion of certain data, which may impact the Service features available to you or essential operation of the Service.
We collect certain personal and anonymous data when you use the Service including when you initially sign up on the Website and during your continued use of the Service. The following is a description of the personal data that we may collect, use and process in connection with the Service:
We process your personal data for our legitimate business purposes. These uses include but are not limited to:
We may disclose your personal data to our parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, employees and contractors for the same purposes described above as permitted by applicable law. In order to provide the Service to you, we may also disclose your personal data to third parties, who may be located in a foreign jurisdiction and subject to foreign laws.
You may contact Pink Cat to obtain a copy of any personal data we collect about you, the production of which may be subject to a fee as permitted by applicable law. In addition, you may contact Pink Cat to correct inaccurate personal data or to complete incomplete personal data.
You may be able to opt-out of some or all of the ways in which your personal data is processed, or request the deletion of certain personal data, except where the personal data is necessary or vital for:
and may do so by requesting deletion by contacting us using the contact information found below. Please note that the Service makes use of Student Details in many ways that make it easier for Teachers to use the Service by keeping information about their Students easily accessible and while you never need to provide any Student Details and Student Details may be deleted or removed at any time, removing such data may significantly impact the usefulness of the Service.
While Pink Cat is a Canadian company, the data you provide through the Service may be stored and processed by third parties in countries around the world. You authorize Pink Cat and third parties acting on our behalf to process your data in any country of their choosing, which may cause your data, including personal and anonymous data, to be subject to privacy protections and legal rights that may not be equivalent to those in your country.
For residents in the European Economic Area (the “EEA”), Pink Cat complies with Articles 44-49 of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”). Currently, all transfers of personal data to Canada from residents of the EEA are covered by an adequacy decision as described in Article 45 of the GDPR.
Your personal data is retained until you request its deletion or until Pink Cat no longer requires such data for the purpose for which it was collected or until deletion is required by law, whichever is earlier in time.
Pink Cat complies with the United States Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and all other applicable laws and regulations concerning children and the Internet including those applicable in the EEA. The Service is directed to children under the age of 13 for some features of the Service and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 unless such information is provided to us in accordance with COPPA. If we learn that we inadvertently collected personal information from a child under the age of 13 outside what is permitted by applicable law in your jurisdiction, which includes COPPA if you are located in the United States, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you are a parent or guardian of a child who you believe provided Pink Cat with personal information without valid verifiable consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a resident of the EEA below the age of consent in your country, Pink Cat shall comply with applicable consent gathering standards required by law in your jurisdiction.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a web or device setting that allows you to request that receivers of personal data stop their tracking activities. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser or device or use alternative consumer choice mechanisms, your browser or device sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, advertising networks, plug-in providers and other web services you encounter to stop tracking your activity. Currently, there are no DNT technology standards and, as a result, we do not respond to DNT requests.
If you are a California resident, California Civil Code 1798.83 grants you the right to request disclosure of the categories of personal information we provided to third parties, and the names and addresses of these third parties, for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make this request, please contact us using the contact information set forth below.
Please note that you may only make this request once per year.
The processing of your Contact Info and Use Information (except in cases when consent is required by law) is necessary for our provision of the Services to you, as described in Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. In other cases, such as when you provide consent to contact you using additional Contact Info that you provide to us or when we collect Student Details (as permitted by applicable law), Pink Cat may collect such personal data pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR.
If you are a resident of the EEA, you have certain rights to your personal data. These rights include:
We are committed to ensuring that your data is secure. To prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, or breach, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure the data we collect and process, including appropriate protections for any sensitive personal data we collect such as for Student Details.
In the event of a data security breach that contains personal information, we will notify affected account holders using the information if required by applicable law and within the timeframe required by law.
We communicate with you primarily through the Service itself, but we may sometimes collect your email address, phone number or other Contact Info in order to respond to support requests or comments. If you have provided us with your email address and would like to change the email preferences we associate with you (for example, unsubscribing from receiving certain types of email) you may do so by clicking a link within certain types of emails that we send to you or, if no link is available, by replying with “unsubscribe” in the email title or body. On rare occasions, some types of email are necessary for the Service and cannot be unsubscribed from if you continue to use the Service.
