We ask for some personal information when you create an account, including your name, job title, school district or company name, and email address and a password, which are used to protect your account from unauthorized access.
Usage Information: When you use Schoolwide.com and Zing, we may record information about your usage of the site, such as the books you read, the videos you watch, and information and pages you click on.

For some activities on Schoolwide.com, including Zing, you may need to upload information about your students. We ask for student information solely so that we may improve the features and functionality of our websites (e.g., to be able to provide you with detailed reporting and data). Examples of student information include student ID, first name, last name, and gender (typically required) as well as race, disability status, migrant status, English proficiency (ELL), and whether the student is economically disadvantaged (typically optional).
Schoolwide.com will not advertise or send any commercial messages via email directly to students.
If you submit personal information, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of our websites and to process any flagging activity or communication you send to us.
We do not use your email address or other personal information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. We may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major website changes or for customer service purposes). By creating an account, you agree to us contacting you by email and storing your contact details for future contact. You may receive relevant marketing communications from Schoolwide, but you can unsubscribe at any time if these emails are not of interest to you.
