Terms Of Service
It is important that you read all of these terms of service carefully.

Last Update: April 28, 2013

IMPORTANT! AS WITH ALL CONTRACTS, IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18, YOU MUST HAVE YOUR PARENT OR GUARDIAN READ THESE TERMS AND AGREE TO THEM FOR YOU. IF YOUR PARENT OR GUARDIAN DOES NOT READ AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS ON YOUR BEHALF, YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO USE THE SITE OR SERVICES.

ClassTrak.com (“ClassTrak” or “we”) provides a platform which enables course leaders (“Teachers”) to manage their educational courses and other groups (“courses”) through our website, accessible at www.classtrak.com (the “Site”; and the services provided through such Site, the “Service”). Using the Site, Teachers create courses where course members (“Students”) and their parents or guardians ("Parents"), when they are enrolled by the Teachers, can access materials and information related to the course, and where Teachers and Students can post messages and updates about course-related topics. We want to make communication between Teachers, Students and Parents easier so that Students can do better at school.

Please read carefully the following terms and conditions (“Terms”) and our Privacy Policy, which is accessible at www.classtrak.com/privacy and which is incorporated by reference into these Terms. These Terms govern your access to and use of the Site, Service and Collective Content (defined below), and constitute a binding legal agreement between you and ClassTrak.

Use by Children

ClassTrak collects limited personal information from minor Students, but only where that student's school, district, and/or Teacher has contracted with ClassTrak to collect personal information from Students for the use and benefit of the learning environment. ClassTrak requires schools, districts, and/or Teachers to obtain parental consent from Students' Parents before collecting any such personal information. If you are a Student, please do not send any personal information about yourself to us, other than what we request from you when you are able to sign up for the Services. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a Student without parental consent being obtained by his or her school, district, and/or Teacher, or if we learn a Student has provided us personal information beyond what we request when he or she signs up for the Website, we will permanently delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a Student may have provided us personal information beyond what is requested when signing up for the Website, or that a Student's school, district, or Teacher has not required parental consent prior to our collection of any personal information, please contact us at info@classtrak.com.
