Collection and Use of Your Information

The sections below describe the ways Xamplr collects and uses personal data, which refers to any information that identifies you as an individual (directly or indirectly). This includes things like the display name, email address, school name, state, country from Users (“Personal Information”). We collectively refer to any of this data we collect from Users, along with any User information and User-generated content as “User Data.”

Our collection, use, and disclosure of User Data are governed by our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use and also by the provision of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and applicable state laws that relate to the collection of User Data. Xamplr shall not use User Data for any purposes other than those authorized pursuant to our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

Xamplr accounts: The following table describes the data that Xamplr collects from registered Users. You can also try Xamplr without creating an account, but your learning progress won't be saved.

User data stored by Xamplr

How and when is the data collected?

How this data is used

Name

Required by User only when enrolling in a class with a Teacher

Name is used to identify the User in the Teacher’s view of User progress. This name is not public and can only be read by the User and any Teacher with whom they have enrolled.

User email stored within authentication service. For password recovery.

Email address is required on account creation.

A User's email address is only used for the purposes of login and password recovery. The only circumstance when Xamplr's servers use a User's email address is if the User forgets their password and asks to reset it. This is conducted through the authentication provider (i.e. google or custom email) At that point, the User is prompted to enter their email, which is matched to the authentication provider and used to send them a password reset link.

User Vocabulary list progress

1- Date/Time that examples are written and votes are cast.

2- Number of examples correctly and incorrectly identified.

3- The written text of the examples and non-examples that the User submitted

5- User votes on other User examples.

Collected as Users work through the vocabulary lists that their teacher has assigned them.

This information is displayed to Users and their Teachers to see their progress for a particular vocabulary list, to see the examples they’ve created, and to identify vocabulary words from the vocabulary list that they need help with. It also lets Users pick up where they left off if they sign out and sign in later.

This data, in de-identified form, also helps Xamplr improve effectiveness. For example, if a vocabulary example appears (based on collected data) to be too difficult to write or identify, Xamplr may decide to provide support for the learner by rewriting the given stock examples and definitions.

Additional data stored by Xamplr if you create a Teacher account

How and when is the data collected?

How this data is used

Email address

Email address is collected when a Teacher creates a classroom on Xamplr with enrolled users.

Email addresses are used to send emails to the Teacher with updates about the Xamplr service.

User section data

Collected when Teacher creates a section on Xamplr to manage their Users.

The Teacher may assign each section a section and course name. The data within any section (Users and their list progress) is used by the teacher for evaluation purposes. The section data, including enrolled student names is only accessible by the teacher.

A Teacher account on Xamplr has all the functionality of a User account, and as a result the data collected and stored for a Teacher account is a superset of the data stored for a User account.

User Data of any User that is in a Teacher's section will continue to be under the control of the Teacher. Users over the age of 13 can add or remove themselves from a Teacher's section. The Teachers for these sections get access to the User's course progress and display name, but not their email address. If a User is no longer associated with a Teacher’s section, that means the User Data will no longer be managed by the Teacher and the User will retain possession and control of the User-generated content.

In order to allow Users to recover deleted accounts, we will save progress for a period of time. A User can email brad@xamplr.com to request permanent deletion of their account and all the associated data. A Teacher may also request the deletion of User accounts or particular User written work the same way.

Viewing and Correcting Your Information

Users and teachers using Xamplr have the ability to edit and update their information. Users can delete their own examples on individual term pages or by navigating to the term in question and accessing step 3 create to see a list of their previous examples. The delete button will remove these examples from our database.

Information from Children

As a college preparatory vocabulary tool (for Advanced Placement and SAT classes) Xamplr is not directed to be used by children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information of a child under the age 13, we will take reasonable steps to delete such information from our files as soon as is practicable. Please contact us at brad@xamplr.com if you believe we have any information from or about a child under the age of 13.
