LanSchool Air Privacy Statement

This statement was last updated and made effective on October 4, 2019.

This LanSchool Air Privacy Statement applies to the LanSchool Air products and services licensed by Stoneware, Inc. (a Lenovo company) (“Stoneware” or “we”). This Privacy Statement describes how the LanSchool Air products and services collect, use and safeguard information. The section called “What information is collected from children, and how is it used?” below discusses Stoneware’s information practices for collection and use of information from children. Please also be sure to review the LanSchool Air Terms of Service, which can be found at found at https://www.lenovosoftware.com/legal.

LanSchool Air is a classroom device management service. It allows instructors a degree of control over classroom devices using an agent that is installed on the device.

WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED AND HOW IS IT USED?

Stoneware may collect the following information from instructors, schools, and corporate customers through LanSchool Air products and services. We may also collect this information through the LanSchool Air website.

  • Personal Information, such as your name, e-mail addresses, contact information, and related user profile data. We collect this information when you register for LanSchool Air, create a user profile, complete a customer satisfaction survey, register for a marketing campaign or promotion and other points where the user chooses to provide such information.
  • Account log-in credentials, such as usernames and passwords, which authenticate users of LanSchool Air.
  • Device identifiers and related information, such as device id, serial number, IMEI, MAC address, IP address and domain names. We use this information to measure the use of our sites and to improve the content of our sites. Aggregated information is not used in such a form that would enable direct connection of any personal information to our visitors.
  • Certain data on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us when using LanSchool Air, during a promotion, from surveys and from our server log files. This information is collected to better understand and serve our users and customers, as well as to determine how we can improve our products. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis so as to prevent identification of personal information relating to any one individual. Stoneware may share this aggregated data with our agents (service providers).

WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED FROM CHILDREN, AND HOW IS IT USED?

For educational institutions, schools, or school districts (“schools”): Schools may choose to use LanSchool Air products for classroom management in an educational setting. Where a school elects to use LanSchool Air, we provide LanSchool Air as a service provider to that school. The account, information, and content associated with LanSchool Air are controlled by the school – not by Stoneware.

Stoneware may collect the following information from students through LanSchool Air:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • School or system identifier
  • Username

This information is used to match students using classroom devices with a classroom list created by an instructor or school administrator.

Stoneware collects personal information from students through LanSchool Air products for the use and benefit of the school, and for no other commercial purpose. To the extent that a school determines consent from a student’s parent or legal guardian is required, Stoneware relies on the school to obtain such consent (including, where applicable, relying on the school to act as the parent’s agent and consent to the collection of information from children on the parent’s behalf). If you are a parent or guardian, and you have questions about any of the above, please contact your school.

For other customers and entities: LanSchool Air may only be used with children under 13 by schools (as defined in this Privacy Statement). Customers and companies that are not schools may not use LanSchool Air with children under 13. LanSchool Air is not intended or designed for such use.

For users of Stoneware websites: Websites operated by Stoneware (including www.lanschoolair.com) are intended for use by adults. They are not intended for use by children under 13. No information should be submitted to or posted on Stoneware websites by children under 13.   

If you believe your child under 13 has provided personal information via LanSchool Air outside of an educational context, please contact Stoneware using the contact information provided below.

IS INFORMATION SHARED WITH THIRD PARTIES?

Yes – Stoneware contracts with other companies who act as our suppliers to perform services for Stoneware, such as data hosting, processing, product development and analytics. Such services may require Stoneware to share your information with our agents. In such cases, we take steps to ensure that these suppliers to Stoneware are adhering to Stoneware’s standards for privacy and security.

The LanSchool Air service may also contain various links to third-party websites or services that may provide additional information, services or promotions. These sites and services may be operated independently of Stoneware and have their own separate privacy and data collection practices. Any information you provide to these websites and services will be governed under the terms of their privacy policy, if any. Stoneware has no responsibility or liability for the actions or policies of these independent sites and services and is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such sites.

Additional details regarding specific third parties who receive information can be found below:

  • Clever: LanSchool Air can integrate with Clever Secure Sync to import class rosters from a school’s student information system (SIS), if a school chooses to activate this feature. This integration is optional and is only available to teachers after the school explicitly approves the connection from within the Clever service. Use of the Clever service is governed by Clever’s Terms of Service (https://clever.com/about/terms). Once enabled by the district, LanSchool may collect and store class rosters that have been explicitly shared with LanSchool by the district. Class rosters may include personally identifiable information about students such as their name, email address, and district ID. This information is stored in cloud servers operated by Stoneware, which use certain security measures, such as authentication techniques, access controls, and encryption, where appropriate.
  • Google API Service: Google APIs is an application programming interface which allows interaction between Google products and services and non-Google products. LanSchool Air utilizes Google sign-in’s API to authenticate, authorize and admit the user into the LanSchool Air product. Google end-users who agree to use the API service submit their Google user credentials to Google sign-in to establish a secure connection to his or her Google data. While LanSchool Air does store the instructor’s first name, last name, email addresses and Google IDs, LanSchool Air does not store any of the user’s Google data. Google’s Privacy Policy can be accessed at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

We may also disclose personal or other information to regulatory or government bodies, courts of law, tribunals, and law enforcement bodies to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate or otherwise address fraud, or respond to a government request.

HOW IS INFORMATION SECURED?

We use certain security measures, such as authentication techniques, access controls and encryption, where appropriate. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely invulnerable. As a result, while we have taken appropriate steps to protect personal information, Stoneware cannot ensure or otherwise warrant the security of any information provided to us.

DOES STONEWARE TRANSMIT INFORMATION INTERNATIONALLY?

Stoneware and Lenovo are global organizations, with legal entities, business processes, management structures, and technical systems that cross borders. Therefore, where permitted by law, we may host or process information on servers located in other countries in the world where we do business. Regardless of where your information is transferred to and resides, our privacy and security practices are designed to provide protection globally.

Please note that some countries have privacy laws that are not equivalent to privacy laws in your own country. In such countries, Stoneware and Lenovo will still handle information in the manner we describe here and will take such measures as are necessary to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring and processing your information. Where required, Stoneware and Lenovo will also maintain agreements between Lenovo group companies or with Lenovo partners or suppliers to govern the transferring, processing and protection of personal information.

HOW LONG WILL INFORMATION BE RETAINED?

We will retain information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with services and may be archived for a short time period thereafter prior to being permanently purged. We will also retain information as necessary to comply with applicable legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements.

These may include the right (i) to request access to and a copy of your personal information, (ii) to object to processing of your personal information, or to request rectification or erasure of your personal information; (iii) to restrict processing of your personal information; and (iv) to data portability.
