Information Collection, Use, and Disclosure
WriteToLearn is a web-based product of Pearson Education, Inc. Access to WriteToLearn and reports are password protected. Before the School can use WriteToLearn, the School's Administrator establishes logins and passwords for each participating teacher who in turn provides logins and passwords for students enrolled in participating classes. A school may also import into WriteToLearn a file containing student names and assigned passwords. Pearson will use this information to set up and provide user access, supply the WriteToLearn product to the School and for statistical research and analysis.
Student responses from WriteToLearn activities are collected and scored automatically. Through this Site, the School, through the student's teacher (as designated on the Student Enrollment file), may obtain and print reports about the results for that student and track such student's learning progress. All student data is stored on a secure server located in Denver, CO.
Data derived from student responses may be analyzed and aggregated by Pearson for research and statistical analysis purposes to assess the validity, usability and quality of the WriteToLearn product. Research and statistical analysis data will exclude the student's name and the teacher's name and email address, but may include responses and results, as well as demographic data supplied including (a) school and school district name and geographic location; (b) class name (as specified by the School); (c) grade; and (d) gender. Summary results of the research and statistical analysis may be shared by Pearson with third parties.
Pearson will take appropriate, commercially standard steps to keep all personally identifiable information about students and teachers confidential. Pearson will not share any such personal information with any third party (other than the School) except in the following circumstances: (a) in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, to the extent permitted and as restricted by law; (b) when disclosure is required to maintain security and integrity of the Site, or to protect any Site user's security or the security of other persons, consistent with applicable laws.
Access to services on this Site is password protected. All passwords should be maintained as confidential. Users should remember to always log-off when exiting the Site and to NOT share or divulge passwords.
Please contact the School Administrator if you need a new password, if you no longer wish to use WriteToLearn, or if you become aware of any unauthorized use or access to this Site.
