Effective: April 22nd, 2020
The policy governs Jcorp Technology LLC's privacy practices and use of your personal information, relating to Platform LMS. The purpose of this policy is to help you better understand what personal information we collect, how we use it, and what rights you have over it. By using Platform LMS, visiting the Platform website at platformlms.org, or utilizing any other offerings, made by Jcorp Technology LLC ("the company", "Jcorp", "we", "us", "our"), relating to Platform (colloquially "the service," or just "Platform"), you ("the user") consent to provisions of this policy.
1. What This Policy CoversThis policy covers all user personal information and institution information, intellectual property ("content"), or other data that is collected by Jcorp, during the operation of Platform (colloquially "your data"). The policy does not apply to users who use other Jcorp products (unless they also use Platform) or share information with Jcorp outside of Platform.
2. What We CollectWe collect data from you for and during your use of Platform. Generally, that data falls into one of two categories: information you provide to us and data we collect automatically.
2.1 Information You ProvideDuring your use of Platform, you provide information to us. This includes account information, like your name, email address, username, and password. With the exception of a password and email address (for institutional users only), this data is required. We use it to identify you, secure your account, and contact you, with account notifications and marketing communication. While using the services, you provide us with content. This includes information, text, and files you store in courses (if a teacher), submissions and quiz responses (if a student), and messages. This data is required for proper functionality of the services. Finally, we may — at our sole discretion — ask independent users for account verification information, like a government-issued ID (minors will never be asked for a photo ID). This is also required, when asked, to help us secure and protect the services.
2.2 Information We Collect AutomaticallyWhile operating the services, we may automatically collect data from you or your computer. This includes use information, like logs. Our servers automatically log every request, including such information as your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, your user agent string (which gives information about your browser and operating system), and the URL of your request. We use these logs for technical support and debugging only; we do not run analytics on these logs or look for patterns. Further, we regularly delete old information from logs. We also implement logging directly into the Platform application (at app.platformlms.org). This, separate log is used for analytics, to help understand how users use Platform. This log does not usually include information that can be used to identify what user the information came from (it does include a session identifier, but that is only tied to a user for 24-hours or less). We collect tracking information from visitors to Platform's main website at platformlms.org, which does include IP addresses and browser information. This data is used for analytics, is stored internally, and is never shared with a third party. If you use persistent sessions (by clicking "Remember Me" when logging in), we store your IP address, user agent string, and user ID, which allows us to keep you logged in and verify that you are the same person who originally logged in.
3. What Your Data is Used ForWe use the data collected from you to operate the services properly, secure and protect Platform, and understand how Platform is used. That's it. We do not use your data for marketing (outside of Jcorp) or advertising, and we never sell your personal data.
5. Your Rights & Privacy ControlsWe are committed to keeping you in control of how your data is used. With that in mind, we want to remind you about certain rights you have over your data and our data collection:
- You can delete any of your content from the service, at any time;
- If a teacher, you can delete assignments, quizzes, files, pages, and modules by simply clicking "delete;"
- If a student, you can delete all of your assignment submissions and quiz responses by leaving the course (under "settings");
- Any user can delete any message sent to them by clicking "delete."
- You can request deletion of your account at any time.
- If a non-institutional user, contact firstname.lastname@example.org;
- If an institutional user, contact your district.
6. Data SecurityWhile no technology-based service is completely secure, we take every reasonable measure to protect your data from unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction. To this extent, we aim to follow industry security standards, and we monitor the services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
To decrease the chance that your account is ever compromised, consider using a strong password (which you should store securely and never tell anyone).
We currently store the following kinds of cookies:
- Analytics Cookies
- Analytics on websites owned by Jcorp are managed entirely by Jcorp. We do not allow third parties to track users while on Jcorp websites. We do not track users once they leave Jcorp websites.
- Analytics cookies start with "owa_" and can be deleted or blocked without consequence.
- Session Cookies

- Session cookies are named "JCPSESSION"
- Persistent Sessions
- The persistent session cookie stores a persistent identifier, which allows you to remain logged in throughout multiple sessions.

If you delete this cookie, you will be logged out after the current session ends.
