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.

  3. How we Obtain Personal Data

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 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.

  9. Third-Party Services
  10. This Privacy Policy only applies to personal data that Pink Cat collects, processes and discloses and does not apply to the collection, processing and disclosure of data by third parties through third-party services, which may be broader than set forth in this Privacy Policy, and that may be embedded into the Service. In many cases, third-parties may collect personal data about your online activities over time and across different websites and services. We strongly recommend that you read each third-party privacy policy carefully before using the Service. A full list of third-parties that we share your personal data with can be found at Please contact us directly using the information found below if you would like to learn more about third-party data practices.

  11. Cookies and Tracking Technologies
  12. The Service uses tracking technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, JavaScript tags and clear GIFs to collect data about you, such as your IP address and device information. Based on this data, third-parties may be able to resolve your identity across multiple devices. We do not track Student behaviour using third-party tracking technologies for marketing purposes and in cases where all user behaviour is tracked necessarily for security of the Service and/or if such user provides valid verifiable consent to track this behaviour. This data is collected, used and disclosed in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy and the applicable third-party privacy policies. Certain Service features may rely on tracking technologies and by declining to accept cookies, disabling JavaScript or by changing certain settings on your device, you may not have access to these features. Further details regarding the Service’s use of cookies can be found at

  13. Obtaining, Rectifying and Controlling Your Personal Data
  14. 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:

    • the performance of contractual obligations, such as the TOU or certain legal obligations;
    • protecting your interests or those of another person; and
    • our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third-party,

    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.

  15. Data Storage and Retention
  16. 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.

  17. Children
  18. 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

    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.

  19. Do Not Track Disclosure
  20. 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.

  21. California “Shine the Light” Right
  22. 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.

  23. Your California Privacy Rights
  24. If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.120 permits you to opt-out of the sale of your personal information to third parties. Currently, Pink Cat does not sell your personal information to third parties and as such no opt-out of the sale of such personal information is necessary. Although Pink Cat does not sell your personal information to third-parties, Pink Cat does provide a general opt-out right to all of our users as described in our Privacy Policy. Furthermore, as Pink Cat already complies with other US, Canadian and EEA privacy laws, the rights provided by law to Californian residents are already provided for in our Privacy Policy. If you have any other questions about our privacy practices, please email us at

  25. European Users and Rights of European Economic Area Residents
  26. 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.

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless there are compelling and prevailing legitimate grounds for the processing as described in Article 21 of the GDPR; in particular, if the personal data is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or if personal data is required for the provision of the Service and you still wish to use the Service.
    • A Right to file a Complaint. You have the right to file a complaint with the appropriate supervisory authority in your jurisdiction.
