We collect the following types of information:
When a District administrator registers with Level Data, or if the administrator corresponds with us online we may ask for certain information, including a name, school name, school district, school email address and/or account name and password, billing information, phone number, message content, and information relating to the School/District’s information systems. We may also retain information provided by a School/District if the School/District sends us a message, posts content to our website or through our Service, interacts with us on Facebook or LinkedIn or logs into our site using a third-party login such as Google +, or responds to emails or surveys. Once a School/District begins using the Service, we will keep records of activities related to the Service. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to the features and functionality of the Service, to analyze our Service offerings and functionality, and to communicate with our District contacts and website visitors.
Level Data may receive personally identifiable information (PII) about students (“Student Data”) in the course of providing its Service to a District. We consider Student Data to be confidential and do not use such personally identifiable data for any purpose other than to provide the Service to the corresponding District. Level Data receives Student Data only from the District and never interacts with the Student directly.
Level Data has access to Student Data only as requested by the District and only for the purposes of performing Service on the District’s behalf. If you are a Student or parent, please contact your District if you have questions about the District’s use of technology service providers like Level Data.
We automatically collect certain types of usage information when visitors view our website or use our service. We may send one or more cookies—a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters—to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets Level Data help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Service), and allow us to track your usage of the Service over time. We may collect log file information from your browser or mobile device each time you access the Service. Log file information may include anonymous information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, information about your mobile device, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, pages viewed, and other such information. We may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to anonymously track the online usage patterns of our Users. In addition, we may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our Districts to track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service. We may also collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. We do not allow third-party advertising networks to collect information about the users of our Site or Service.
We use or may use the data collected through cookies, log files, device identifiers, and clear gifs information to: (a) remember information so that a user will not have to re-enter it during subsequent visits; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) to provide and monitor the effectiveness of our Service; (d) monitor and aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and usage on our website and our Service; (e) diagnose or fix technology problems; and (f) help users efficiently access information after signing in.
Our Service platform provides procedures and connectors (custom software) to improve the processes of moving data to and from applications within school districts in order to help improve school processes and to improve data quality.
Level Data only shares personally identifiable information in a few limited circumstances, described below. Other than what is documented below, we DO NOT rent or sell information to any party, for any purpose, without exception.
Our core business is Data Integration. The core function of this involves moving data (Student, Teacher, Parent, etc) from a Source application to given Target applications. Through these core functions data is shared with designated, trusted, and approved 3rd party software vendors of the District.
We may permit our users to share information with one another through our own forums and messaging functions. These forums are exclusively consent based. When you post to the public areas of our Service, your username will be disclosed to other users. We do not control how much personal information a user voluntarily chooses to share through these user content features on our Service.
In the event of a change of control: If we sell, divest or transfer the business or a portion of our business, we may transfer information, provided that the new provider has agreed to data privacy standards no less stringent than our own. We may also transfer personal information – under the same conditions – in the course of mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, dissolutions, reorganizations, liquidations, similar transactions or proceedings involving all or a portion of our business.
Level Data uses personally identifiable Student Data that it receives from a District solely for the purposes of providing our Service to the District.
Your information collected through the Service is processed in the country in which Level Data service providers maintain facilities. If you are based in the United States and use our Service, you consent to have your data processed by Level Data in the United States. International clients have differing needs based on their country of origin and we provide custom storage and processing solutions to meet those requirements. Keeping information safe: Level Data maintains strict administrative, technical and physical procedures to protect information processed via our servers. Access to information is limited (through user/password credentials and two-factor authentication) to those employees who require it to perform their job functions. We use industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to safeguard the account registration process and sign-up information. Other security safeguards include but are not limited to data encryption, firewalls, VPN, physical access controls to building and files, and an end-to-end zero-knowledge environment in which identifiable data is only available to the customer.
Account information and settings: Districts may update account information and modify Services by signing into the administrator account. Districts and other website visitors can opt-out of receiving promotional email from us by clicking on the “unsubscribe” feature at the bottom of each email. Customers cannot unsubscribe from Service-related messaging.

Student Data is provided and controlled by the Districts. If you have any questions about reviewing, modifying, or deleting personal information of a student, please contact your District directly.

It’s also important to note that we do not allow third party behavioral tracking.
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information. In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur: We will notify the users via email within 1 business day.
We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
