Effective Date: [November 11, 2022]
The Possip Service
The Possip Service (our “Service”) is designed to gather feedback from school stakeholders including parents/guardians, staff, and students and to compile that feedback, and communicate it to schools. Our Service operates through regular (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly) text messages and/or emails, which pose questions and provide opportunities for parents/guardians, staff, and students to communicate with schools. Participation in the Service is voluntary.

- Your Child’s School and/or school district affiliation; student number, grade level
- Your language preference for communication with the school;
- Other information you voluntarily provide when you register for or use our Service

Collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information by third-parties is subject to those third parties’ privacy policies. Whenever we share data with such third-party services, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we have authorized, and that they protect your Personal Information at least to the same standards as we do. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise disclose Personal Information to third parties for their marketing purposes.
We may disclose Aggregated Data to third parties for any reason.
We reserve the right to disclose personal information when it is reasonably necessary to conduct our business, to protect our legal rights and property, and to comply with the law or law enforcement.
