Effective starting: 16th June, 2020. This Privacy Policy informs you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive from visitors and registered users of Schoolam.com (this "Site"). This Privacy Policy applies only to information that you provide to us through this Site and explains in plain language what we do with that information, how we share it, and how we handle the content you place. It also explains your rights and the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information. Our Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time, and we will notify you of any material changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on the Site at Privacy policy and revising the “Effective starting” date at the top of this policy. This Privacy Policy applies to the information that we obtain through your use of "Site" via a "Device" or when you otherwise interact with Schoolam. A "Device" is any computer used to access the “Site”, including without limitation a desktop, laptop, mobile phone or other consumer electronic device. “Site” includes the Schoolam web site and SaaS service but does not include any other own or third party products or services for which a separate privacy policy is provided. These are third party products or services that you may choose to integrate with Schoolam services. You should always review the policies of third party products and services to make sure you are comfortable with the ways in which they collect and use your information. By registering for or using Schoolam Services and accepting the Terms of Service you consent to the collection, transfer, processing, storage, disclosure and other uses described in this Privacy Policy.

We use information we obtain by technical means (such as the logging performed by our servers or through the use of cookies) for the above purposes and in order to monitor and analyze use of the Site and our services, for the Site's technical administration, to increase our Site's functionality and user-friendliness, to better tailor it to your needs, to generate and derive useful data and information concerning the interests, characteristics and website use behavior, and to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests. We collect and process personal data in a transparent manner, to the extent necessary for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes, and do not process it further in a manner incompatible with those purposes. We take care that the data we collect are accurate and, when necessary, updated. We take all reasonable steps to immediately delete or rectify personal data, if inaccurate.

Each domain’s data are retained for as long as the Customer's subscription to the service lasts. Upon contract expiration the data will be deleted or returned to the Customer if the Customer instructs us to. Alternatively, the domain will be rendered “inactive” and stored offline for 12 months so that a service reconnection is as smooth as possible; in case subscription is not renewed after 12 months, the data are permanently deleted.
