Our Commitment to Your Privacy

Pupil Inc., operating under the name Ethiqly ("Ethiqly," "we," "our," or "us"), is committed to safeguarding the privacy and security of personal information. This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, share, and retain your information through our websites ("Websites"), digital tools ("Tools"), and related services ("Services"). By accessing or using our Websites, Tools, and Services on any device ("Device"), you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. We may update this Privacy Policy, and your continued use of our offerings constitutes acceptance of any changes. This Privacy Policy is an integral part of our Terms of Use for the Websites, Tools, and Services.

 

Information We Collect

We collect various types of information to provide innovative Tools and Services and operate our business. These include:

 

Personal User Data

Personal User Data includes information that can directly or indirectly identify you as a user of our Tools or Websites. It may encompass your name, email address, telephone number, and location.

 

Tool or Service Specific Data

This category covers information provided by you to enable the functionality of our Tools or the provision of Services. Examples include personal details, account usernames, passwords, student information such as names, email rosters, and class codes.

 

Anonymous User Data

Anonymous User Data comprises information that is anonymous, aggregate, de-identified, or does not reveal your identity. Examples include school identifiers, IP addresses, browser and operating system details, and website usage statistics.

 

How We Collect and Use Your Information

 

Services

For certain engagements, educational institutions or Schools may provide us with information required to offer the Services. This may include Tool or Service Specific Data, Personal User Data of students or staff, and access to account credentials, Devices, or systems. This information is supplied and managed by the School and is solely used to provide Services, as described in this Privacy Policy. We do not utilize student Personal User Data for ad targeting.
 

We may also collect Anonymous User Data from our Services to enhance our offerings and provide customers with additional information about our products and services.

 

Tools

When you use our Tools, you may be required to provide your email address. We refrain from collecting other Personal User Data through Tool usage, unless explicitly prompted within a Tool's dashboard for Tool and Service Specific Data. You will be presented with an ongoing opt-out option for additional information collection. Our Tools are intentionally designed not to collect Personal User Data from student users. The Tool and Service Specific Data gathered is exclusively used to grant access to paid Tool features.

 

We may collect Anonymous User Data such as the domain portion of your email address or other activity markers to analyze and report aggregate user behavior, improve our Tools, and communicate with potential customers.

 

Tools with Access to Google Services

In some cases, our Tools may request authorization from you or the domain administrator to act on your behalf within Google Platform services. This authorization process adheres to OAuth 2.0 protocols and provides our Tools with limited access to the Google Platform ("Google Services"). These Google Services may involve personal information, subject to Google, Inc.'s terms of use and data privacy policies. Unless explicitly initiated by you, no information from Google Services is shared with us, stored by us in your Google account for public access, or held in a data storage location outside your control via your Google account.

 

Websites

Our Websites may collect Personal User Data via web forms, including contact details, geographic location, and pre-sales inquiries. Visitors provide the information they wish to share. We collect Anonymous User Data based on website usage to serve current and potential customers better and enhance our Services, Tools, and Websites.

We also use cookies to compile aggregate traffic data for future improvements. These cookies do not transmit Personal User Data. You can disable cookies via your browser settings, but please note that certain website features may not function correctly without them. We do not engage in behavioral ad targeting.
