About This Policy
What Type of Information Does StudyGoals Collect?
Information You Provide To Us We collect the personal data that you provide to us. This includes your contact information, such as your name and e-mail address, and school. When using our mobile applications we may also provide you with the opportunity to provide us with your phone number. We will only collect credit card information when you elect to purchase goods or services we do not offer for free. When you choose to supply information, we collect it. When you use the Site, you may do things like form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, form groups, set up events, and transmit information through various channels. When you do so, we collect this information so that we can analyze our performance, provide you with these services and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain this information so you can have a record of your activity. If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about StudyGoals, we will ask you for information needed to send the invitation, such as your friend’s email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Site. Your friend’s email will then be deleted unless they choose to register for an account. If you communicate with us regarding our goods or services, we will collect the information that you provide to us. Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names and e-mail addresses) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We won’t knowingly allow anyone under 16 to register with us or to provide any other personal information. Information From Other Sources We sometimes supplement the information that we collect with information from other sources. We may also collect personal information you choose to make available through social networking sites such as (but not limited to) facebook® and Twitter®.
We also collect information about your system and devices and how you use the Site and our goods and services. We use analytic and reporting technologies to record non-personal information such as Internet domain and host names, browser software, operating system types, page views, clickstream patterns, and the dates and times you access the Site. We may use a variety of methods for automatically collecting such “passive” information. We may contract with third party vendors to help manage, monitor and optimize the Site and to help us measure the effectiveness of our services. To do this, we may use log files, web beacons and cookies. We are able to determine the Internet protocol (IP) address from which you access the Site. Essentially, your IP address is a numerical address that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data (such as web pages you want to view) can be transmitted to you. Your IP address does not tell us who you are.
What About Children's Privacy?
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 16 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 16, please do not attempt to register or send any information about yourself to us. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact us: email@example.com
What Does StudyGoals Do With The Information It Collects?
When you register with StudyGoals, you create your profile. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to people in the network. StudyGoals may send you service-related announcements; from time to time we may also use your name and email address to deliver notifications and advertising regarding services (both ours and those provided by others) that we think you may find valuable. When you use StudyGoals, information you post or share with others, such as personal information, meetings, questions, comments, messages, photos, videos, or other information, will become available to other users. All sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information using the Site, this information may become publicly available.
Public Searching of Shared Material
Your questions, meetings, and your shared profile information is visible to anyone. StudyGoals does not contain functionality permitting any user to search for and to use such content. For example: any other user can see your questions and answers, and can incorporate your questions and answers into their own. They will also know who you are.
About Aggregated Reports
StudyGoals gathers information about its users, such as what areas users visit and what services users access most frequently. StudyGoals automatically logs IP addresses, session sources, and other data that tracks users’ access to our services. We analyze these logs for sales and marketing purposes as well as for system performance monitoring. These logs are analyzed for the aggregate trends they reveal about our users and how they use our services. We may use aggregated personal information to determine the demographic composition of our user base and to distribute statistics and general marketplace information about StudyGoals. We may disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to prospective advertisers and other third parties, for lawful purposes.
Third Party Advertising
When Will StudyGoals Disclose My Information to Third Parties?
We may sell information we collect on the Site in conjunction with the disposition of StudyGoals’s assets in bankruptcy and/or through merger or acquisition. In the event StudyGoals goes through a business transition, such as a merger or acquisition by or with another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your personal information will likely be among the assets transferred. We may disclose information (including personally identifiable information) about you to our Affiliates. For purposes of this Policy only, “Affiliates” means any person or entity which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under common control with us, whether by ownership or otherwise. We reserve the right to disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or with legal process or government request served on us; (b) protect and defend our rights or property; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of a user of the Site, or the public. As needed we may also disclose information we collect on the Site to third-party service providers we retain to provide goods and services to us, including but not limited to reports, analyses, technical support, hosting and maintenance, credit card processing, sending emails on our behalf, fraud screening and developing applications. We cannot guarantee that such third parties will not disclose your personal information.Communications from the Site Newsletters: When you sign up for our services we will send you push notifications. If you no longer wish to receive these communications you may opt out of receiving push notifications at the device level. Service Related Announcements: We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature.

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow reasonable industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, people who try and bypass security systems, or “hackers,” are often very skilled at breaking through security systems, and therefore we can make no guarantee that your information will be 100% safe. For your own information and protection on the Site and on the Internet in general, please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information, that information can be collected and used by others. Similarly, if you post personal information in public places, you may receive unsolicited e-mail messages. If you have any questions regarding security you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How Can I Access My Personal Information?
Access and control over most personal information on StudyGoals is readily available through the profile editing tools. When you make use of our content features to share information with other users on StudyGoals, (e.g., sending a personal message to another user, uploading files, or creating meetings) you may not be able to remove such content, so please exercise caution and discretion before sharing such information. If you wish to access personal information that is not available to you through your account, please contact us at the address listed below. We may require proof of your identity before providing any such information. To the extent the law permits us to do so, we reserve the right to refuse to provide you with copies of your personal data if reasonably necessary due to administrative or technical burden, expense or security concerns. You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove from our system each and every record of the information you have provided to us. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. After receiving your request, however, all personally identifiable information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media we control will be updated, corrected, changed or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as reasonably practicable. We will respond to requests for access within 90 days. If you would like to request the removal of an unauthorized profile you can contact us at email@example.com We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
