Student Bill of Rights
This document was last updated on June 9, 2014.
This Student Bill of Rights outlines our collective desire to communicate support regarding the rights of parents and students concerning their data. Since this online system does not collect contact information for students or parents, the responsibility for many of these protections regarding direct communication to families falls on the schools, programs and entities adopting this technology.
The data used by Pairin Inc. and its contractors will be collected, managed, and aggregated to give students, parents, school instructors, and school administrators insight to meet the needs of the individualized student.
The data collected, managed, and aggregated through Pairin Inc. and its contractors will never be used outside the usage outlined and directed by the respective education institutions, nor will it be sold to any third-party consumer.
Pairin Inc. recommends that its clients frequently communicate with students and parents about the use of Pairin Inc. surveys and the application of student data collected from those surveys.
Students and Parents have the right to know what kind of data Pairin Inc. and its contractors collect and how this data will be used.
Students and Parents participating in Pairin Inc. surveys have the right to receive reports of the data specific to the individual surveyed.
NOTE: Since Pairin does not collect individual contact information for students, and all personally identifiable data is anonymized, even for Pairin’s employees, only administrators (Pairin’s clients) have access to student data. They would be the party responsible to providing data to the parents and students beyond basic student reports received at the time of taking the survey.
Students and Parents have the right to expect that Pairin Inc. and its contractors will use the data collected, managed, and aggregated through Pairin solely in ways that are compatible with which the data was collected.
Students and Parents have the right to reasonably limit data collected, managed, or aggregated through Pairin Inc. and its contractors when Pairin Inc. and its contractors intend to use this data outside the intended purpose of the respective education institutions.
Students and Parents have the right to secure and responsible data collection, management, and aggregation practices through Pairin Inc. and its contractors.
Students and Parents have the right to know the security practices in place to protect the highly confidential and personal data provided to Pairin Inc. and its contractors.
NOTE: Pairin will maintain on its website all data security, privacy statements, terms of service agreements, and update as new security features are added. Before the launch of the new product, Pairin’s policies will all be updated to reflect this Student’s Bill of Rights among other new protections.
Data Breach Notification & Accountability
Students and Parents have the right to be immediately informed of any breach in security and to provide reasonable support for affected individuals at substantial risk of harm from the security breach.
NOTE: Since Pairin and its contractors do not collect parent or student contact information, Pairin will immediately notify its clients of any breach in security and provide technical support for affected individuals. Since all personally identifiable information in Pairin’s database is anonymous, the raw data cannot be connected to an individual, thus making it useless to anyone without proper access control to the service.
