This statement will be continuously assessed against new technologies, ethical practices, and the needs of our users.
We do not sell or exchange your information with any organization, public, private, or nonprofit other than your school.
No Information from Children Under Age 13
If you are under age 13, please do not attempt to register for ParentSquare or provide any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
What Information Do We Collect
You or your school may provide us with two types of information: personal information you or your school knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website.
Information You Provide to Us
When your school chooses to use ParentSquare, the school provides us with your name and email address and the name of the class you child is in and this information is available to registered ParentSquare users in your school. During the registration process you provide us with your child(ren)’s name(s) and class(es). Once you register you can provide other information about yourself such as your phone numbers, address, profession, talent, interests and abilities. All information you provide to us is made accessible to other users in your school. This information is not shared with users outside of your school, but may be made available to your school's district office should they request it.
Information Collected by Third Parties
We advertise on Twitter and use conversion tracking codes from Twitter to understand what ads are working and which are not and to serve ads targeted to users’ interests.

Information We Collect when You Interact With ParentSquare
Site Activity Information
We keep track of some of the actions you take on ParentSquare. For example, if you add a comment, in addition to storing the actual comment, we log the fact that you added a comment.
Access Device and Browser Information
When you access ParentSquare from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, the pages you visit, the date and time of visits and the time spent at our website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.
We use "cookies" (small pieces of data we store for an extended period of time on your computer) to make ParentSquare easier to use and to protect both you and ParentSquare. For example, we use them to store your login ID (but never your password) to make it easier for you to login whenever you come back to ParentSquare. We also use them to confirm that you are logged into ParentSquare. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use ParentSquare.
