Our Privacy Policy describes how we treat personal information when you use our service

Our Privacy Pledge

Spaces by myBlueprint is committed to the following principles with respect to your personal information:

  • We take the protection of your information seriously.
  • We do not use the personal information of K-12 students for any marketing or targeted advertising.
  • We store data in a highly secure Microsoft Azure datacenter.  Microsoft Azure provides industry-leading compliance and privacy certifications to keep student data in the Spaces product safe.
  • We maintain a comprehensive security program reasonably designed to protect the privacy, security and confidentiality of your personal information against risks – such as unauthorized access or use, or unintended or inappropriate disclosure - through administrative, technological, and physical safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. 
  • We do not sell your personal information to third parties.
  • We do not own your personal information.
  • We do not use your personal information to build a personal profile of you other than for supporting authorized educational or school purposes or as authorized by you or your parent or guardians

This Privacy Policy is effective as of February 20, 2020.

Doublethink Inc. o/a myBlueprint (“myBlueprint”, “we” , “our”, “us”) recognizes the importance of your right to privacy and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose any personal information that individually identifies you (e.g. name, phone number, e-mail address). It also describes your choices regarding use, access, and correction of your personal information.

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose and protect your personal information when you use our website (the “Site”), our mobile application (the “App”) and our services, including but not limited to our portfolio and career education services, or any, electronic publications, newsletters and/or announcements (collectively, the “Services”). This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and forms part of our Terms of Use, which outline the terms and conditions you agree to when using our Site, App and Services. We will only collect, use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

By using our Site, App or Services, you represent that you, or your parent or guardian, has provided all necessary consents to use the Site, App and Services as required under any applicable privacy laws and that you, or your parent or guardian, consents to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as outlined in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use our Site, App or Services or supply your personal information to us. 

Parent/Guardian Consent Requirement

myBlueprint requires parent or guardian consent as a condition of use of our Site, App or Services for certain users when required by applicable law. Most schools have policies that govern the use of third-party educational services and products like Spaces by myBlueprint, and that address compliance with parental consent and annual notice requirements under laws such as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”). As such, school districts, administrators, and teachers are in the best position to provide required annual notices and obtain parental consent required as a condition of using our Site, App or Services in compliance with applicable law and school policies. When parent or guardian consent is required under applicable law, myBlueprint requires that school districts or teachers obtain written consent from the parents or guardians of students when school districts or teachers set up accounts on behalf of their students, invite students to use our Site, App or Services, and allow students to access student accounts in the classroom. To help facilitate this process, we have provided a model consent form that school districts and teachers may use to obtain parent/guardian consent to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use in our Knowledge Base. 

If you are a school administrator or teacher, by inviting students to use our Site, App or Services, or setting up accounts on behalf of students in your school or classroom, you represent that you or the school district by which you are employed have obtained necessary consent from the parents or guardians of students in your classroom to whom you have invited, or will invite, to use our Site, App or Services.  You further represent that each student’s parent or guardian consents: (1) to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information as outlined in this Privacy Policy, and (2) the terms specified in our Terms of Use on behalf of his or her child.

We provide schools, school administrators and teachers with notices required under applicable law. Additionally, upon request from a school, school administrator or teacher that has established an account with Spaces by myBlueprint for use in the classroom, we provide the school with a description of the types of personal information that we collect, an opportunity to review the personal information of students, and/or have the information deleted, and the opportunity to prevent further use or online collection of a student’s personal information as required by applicable law.

What Personal Information do we collect?

Personal information means any information about an identified or identifiable individual. Anonymous Data means data that is not associated with or linked to any individual’s personal information or will not easily permit the identification of individuals. This includes data about how users interact with the Services. myBlueprint does not consider personal information to include Anonymous Data. The types of personal information that we may collect when using our Site and Services include, but is not limited to:

  • your name;
  • your e-mail address;
  • all content that you create or share in video, text, images, and other media files that you provide on or through the Services, or that are provided on your behalf;

When you use our Services, we will also know what school you attend and the city and state or province in which you go to school, and we may combine that information with information we have from your account.

Why Do We Collect Your Personal Information?

We collect, use and disclose your personal information in order to provide you with our Services. We also collect, use and disclose your personal information to comply with legal and regulatory requirements and as otherwise may be permitted or required by applicable laws. We will only use the personal information that we collect for the purposes for which it was collected. We collect your personal information for the following purposes and in accordance with applicable laws:

  • to provide you with access to our App and Services;
  • to establish and maintain commercial relations with you;
  • to identify and contact you when you request our Services;
  • to respond to your questions that you send by email or through our Site;
  • to contact you about the App and Services, including notifying you about updates;

  • subject to applicable law, to provide you with newsletters and articles;
  • to customise the appearance of the Site, App and Services displayed to you;

  • to meet any legal or regulatory requirements.

We do not collect, maintain, use or share your personal information beyond that needed to provide you with our Services, for authorized educational/school purposes, or for the purposes listed above as authorized by you or your parent or guardian.

When Do We Collect Personal Information?

We may collect your personal information when you voluntarily provide it to us by using our Services. For example, we may ask you to provide personal information if you:

How Do We Store Your Personal Information?

We securely store your personal information in the United States.  We maintain technical, physical and administrative security safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access. Any personal information that you provide to us is exchanged on a secure server. We store data in a highly secure Microsoft Azure datacenter.  Microsoft Azure provides industry-leading compliance and privacy certifications to keep student data in Spaces safe.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.

We take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access to your account on our Site, however, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your username, password and any other account information. We also take reasonable steps to ensure that our employees are aware of the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of personal information and that unauthorized persons do not gain access to personal information that we have disposed of or destroyed.

Limiting Collection of Personal Information

We limit the collection of personal information to that which is necessary to fulfill the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy and we collect, use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Use, Disclosure and Retention of Personal Information

Your personal information will not be used without your consent for purposes other than those for which it was collected or in accordance with applicable laws. From time to time, we may wish to use personal information for new or additional purposes, in which case we will amend the Privacy Policy to include these new or additional purposes and will obtain your consent through your continued use of our Site, App and Services.

We may generate Anonymous Data from personal information collected through the Site, App and Services by removing information that makes the data personally identifiable to an individual. This includes information about how users interact with certain areas of the Services.  We anonymize personal information collected through the Site, App or Services by de-identifying records such that individual records cannot be linked back to an original student record system or to other individual records from the myBlueprint database. We may use this Anonymous Data and aggregated data for any purpose and disclose such data to third parties in our sole discretion.

When we contract with a school district to provide access to our Site, App, or Services to you, we will work with the school district to determine whether we are a “school official” under FERPA.  In cases where we are designated as a “school official,” we will be under the direct control of the school district or educational institution with respect to the use and disclosure of your personal information.

We retain your personal information only for as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, to ensure your compliance with our Terms of Service, and to comply with our legal obligations. Prior to the start of each academic year, we review user account activity to confirm that each user has accessed their account in the preceding 18 months. If a user has not accessed their account during this period, subject to legal or contractual requirements, we will delete the personally identifying information associated with that account by running a script that will permanently delete the account and all associated personally identifying information from our database. We also delete your personal information upon termination of your account, and do not knowingly retain your personal information beyond the time period required to support the provision of our Services to you, and/or to support authorized educational or school purposes, or purposes authorized by you or your parent or guardian.

We may also use and disclose your personal information to service providers, data processors and other third parties (“Third Parties”) under the following limited circumstances:

  • to service providers that help with our operations and Site, App and Services including, without limitation, for monitoring and analyzing Site and App activity, and operating and maintaining the Site and App. These service providers and partner companies may only use your personal information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, and we require that our vendors and third parties with whom your personal information is shared in order to deliver our Services, if any, are obligated to implement the same commitments identified in this Privacy Policy for the given personal information;
  • when necessary to protect our safety, property or other rights, our representatives, customers and users of the Site, App and Services, including to detect and prevent fraud;
  • if we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets to a related company or a third party. Your personal information will remain subject to any pre-existing Privacy Policy unless you agree to the privacy policy of the company or third party that acquires your personal information;
  • with your consent; or
  • when otherwise required or permitted by law.  When permitted under applicable law, we will provide you with notice if we receive a government or legal request for your personal information.

If you are a student, your parent or guardian, as well as your teacher and an administrator from your school and/or school district, may view and access all of your personal information, content and activity associated with your account. If you are a teacher, you will be able to access and edit all information, including personal information, about the students in your classroom.

If the context in which we collect or use your personal information changes, we will obtain your consent in accordance with applicable law prior to such changes becoming effective. In the event that we experience a data breach that results in the release of your unencrypted personal information to an unauthorized third party, we will provide notification to you and to relevant legal authorities without unreasonable delay in accordance with applicable law. We will also take reasonable steps to conduct a threat assessment and remedy the impact of any data breach on you.

Our Site may contain links to other sites that are independently owned and operated by third parties. These other sites may have their own privacy policies and are not governed by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any sites owned and operated by any third parties. Other sites may collect and treat information collected differently, so we encourage you to carefully read and review the privacy policy of each site you visit.

This data collection technology may include cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies on this Site to enhance functionality and navigation for our visitors.

What Are Cookies and Web Beacons?

A cookie is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store settings in the browser.

  • count users and to recognize users by accessing our cookies. Being able to access our cookies allows us to personalize this Site and improve your experience at our Site.

Information tracked through these mechanisms includes, but is not limited to: (i) your IP address; (ii) the type of web browser and operating system being used; (iii) the pages of the Site a user visits; and (iv) other sites a user visited before visiting our Site.

Web Analytics

Some of the analytics services we use may place cookies in the browser of the visitor of the web pages which allows for an analysis of your use of the site. The only user data visible in the diagnostic reports are URLs; and as a best practice our Service does not put any personal data in plain text in a URL.  Analytics services we use may also use “cookies” to analyze how you use our Site.  We may also use cookies to carry out frequency assessments, page usage assessments, and marketing assessments.  For these assessments, we utilize cookie information without a link to your personal information, so the assessment is completely anonymous.

You can set your internet browser to prohibit the installation of cookies that are utilized by the analytics services that we use. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may be restricted in how you are able to use our Site.
