    others online, it may be collected and used by the recipients or any other website visitor without
    restriction. You may wish to use a nickname or alias in your profile if you do not want your
    personal information shared with others in this way. For example, your personal information
    may be visible to others in the following circumstances:

We may use data which has been de-identified and/or aggregated for product development,
research, analytics and other purposes, including for the purpose of analyzing, improving, or
marketing the Joyful Learning Servies. In certain occasions, Joyful Learning may share this data with

marketing and similar services. When we share personal information with third party service
providers or vendors, these third parties are contractually obligated to maintain the security and
confidentiality of that personal information.

event that Joyful Learning is involved in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, change of control, or any
form of sale of some or all of our assets, your personal information may be transferred or disclosed
in connection with such business transaction. If the transaction involves the transfer of Student
Records to a third party, we will require the new owner to continue to honor the terms provided in
this Privacy Policy, or we will provide the School with notice and an opportunity to opt-out of the
transfer of Student Records by deleting Student Records before the transfer occurs.
Joyful Learning may release Personal Information if we have a good faith belief that access, use,
preservation, or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable
law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request; (b) enforce applicable Terms of
Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (c) investigate and defend ourselves
against any third-party claims or allegations; (d) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security
or technical issues; (e) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Joyful Learning, our users,

    unless you opt-in to participate in the partnership or contest, and if so, the information we would

    preserve the integrity and security of your Personal Information and other information we
    maintain in connection with our Service. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of
    any or all of the information you transmit to Joyful Learning, and you do so at your own risk.
    Once we receive your transmission of information, Joyful Learning Educational Services makes
    commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. When you enter sensitive
    information, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer
    technology (SSL) or similar technologies. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that
    such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our
    physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. In the event that any information under our
    control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to
    investigate the situation and will notify you of the security incident in accordance with applicable
    laws and regulations.

    and attribution services, we disable third party ad networks when a School User logs into a
    School User account on the Service.
    We do not build a personal profile of a School User other than in furtherance of an educational
    purpose or as authorized by a Parent.
    We maintain a comprehensive data security program designed to protect the types of Student
    Records maintained by the Service.
    We will clearly and transparently disclose our data policies and practices to our users.

We will never sell Student Records unless the sale is part of a corporate transaction, such as a
merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, or other sale of assets, in which case we will require the new
owner to continue to honor the terms provided in this Privacy Policy or we will provide the
School with notice and an opportunity to opt-out of the transfer of Student Records by deleting
the Student Records before the transfer occurs.
We will not make any material changes to our Privacy Policy or contractual agreements that
relate to the collection or use of Student Records without first giving notice to the parents and
providing a choice before the Student Records are used in a materially different manner than
was disclosed when the information was collected.
