Privacy Policy


PRIVACY POLICY

This page describes how personal information is treated when you use LearnLab.net and related services, including information provided when you use the website (learnlab.net).

Last updated: 20/09/17.

LearnLab AS (“LearnLab”) is concerned about privacy issues and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose information. This Privacy Policy describes our practices about information that we collect through websites operated by us from which you are accessing this Privacy Policy (the “Websites”), through the software applications made available by us for use on or through computers and mobile devices (the “Apps”), and through HTML-formatted email messages that we send that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, including the Websites and Apps, the “Services”). By providing Personal Information to us, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR OUR POLICY REGARDING OUR COLLECTION OF INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER AGE 13.
What is LearnLab?

LearnLab is a Norwegian company and software application (learnlab.net) with employees in Oslo and Copenhagen that develop content and technology for schools in deep collaboration with students, teachers, leaders, and researchers. The main aim is to reinforce different kinds of learning through (1) developing technology and content that facilitate deep learning, life mastery, and well-being, and (2) establish physical and virtual professional learning communities (PLCs) that strengthens students, the teaching profession, and student-centred leadership.

If building a strong foundation for living a rich and meaningful life in the societies of the future is an important goal for the schools of today, we believe this is accomplished best by letting students today participate in digital and analogue learning communities and cross-curricular projects characterized by equity, diversity, growth mindset, collaboration, technology, curiosity, openness, physical activity, questions, communication, democracy, academic knowledge, basic skills, intrinsic motivation, problem-solving, creative and critical thinking.

Ownership
Users (with accounts) retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in their Content, and LearnLab and/or third parties retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in all Content in LearnLab. 

You retain ownership of any intellectual property you post to LearnLab. 

Content License to LearnLab
When you transfer Content to LearnLab through the Services, you give LearnLab a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable right and license to use, host, store, cache, reproduce, publish, display (publicly or otherwise), perform (publicly or otherwise), distribute, transmit, modify, adapt (including, without limitation, in order to conform it to the requirements of any networks, devices, services, or media through which the Services are available), such Subscriber Content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating the Services in accordance with their functionality, improving the Services, and allowing LearnLab to develop new Services. 

When you upload your creations to LearnLab, you grant us a license to make that content available in the ways you'd expect from using our services (for example, via your blog, RSS, the LearnLab Dashboard, etc.). We never want to do anything with your content that surprises you. 

Something else worth noting: We're thrilled to offer our support as a platform for our creators, and we'd never claim to be entitled to royalties or reimbursement for the success of what you've created. It's your work, and we're proud to be a part (however small) of what you accomplish. 

You also agree that this license includes the right for LearnLab to make all publicly-posted Content available to third parties selected by LearnLab, so that those third parties can distribute and/or analyze such Content on other media and services. 

An example of what it means to "make all publicly-posted Content available" to a LearnLab partner for distribution or analysis would be if we licensed a feed of already-publicly-available Content to a partner, like how Twitter makes feeds available through its Streaming API. 

Note also that this license to your Content continues even if you stop using the Services, primarily because of the social nature of Content shared through the Services - when you post something publicly, others may choose to comment on it, making your Content part of a social conversation that cannot later be erased without retroactively censoring the speech of others. 

One thing you should consider before posting: When you make something publicly available on the Internet, it becomes practically impossible to take down all copies of it. 

You also agree that you will respect the intellectual property rights of others, and represent that you have all of the necessary rights to grant us this license for all Content you submit to the Services. 

Compliance with Community Guidelines

You agree that you won't post Subscriber Content that violates, or otherwise use your Account in ways that violate, LearnLab's Community Guidelines. 

Termination and Deletion

On termination of your Account or upon your deletion of pieces of Content from the Services, LearnLab shall make reasonable efforts to make such Content inaccessible and cease use of it; however, you acknowledge and agree that: (a) caching of, copies of, or references to the Subscriber Content may not be removed; and (b) such removed Subscriber Content may persist in backups (not available to others) for a reasonable period of time.

Other Information 
Other Information We May Collect

“Other Information” is any information that does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an individual, such as:
• Browser and device information
• App usage data
• Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies
• Demographic information and other information provided by you
• Aggregated information

If we are required to treat Other Information as Personal Information under applicable law, then we may use it for the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information as detailed in this Policy.

How We May Collect Other Information

We and our third-party service providers may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:

Through your browser or device: Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your device, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, Internet browser type and version and the name and version of the Services (such as the App) you are using. We use this information to ensure that the Services function properly.

Using cookies: Cookies are pieces of information stored directly on the computer that you are using. Cookies allow us to collect information such as browser type, time spent on the Services, pages visited, language preferences, and other anonymous traffic data. We and our service providers use the information only to support the internal operations of the Services, such as for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, to display information more effectively, to personalize your experience while using the Services and to recognize your computer to assist your use of the Services. We also gather statistical information about use of the Services to continually improve their design and functionality, understand how they are used and assist us with resolving questions regarding them.

If you do not want information collected using cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies or be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer to your computer of a particular cookie (or cookies) from a particular site. You may also wish to refer to http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html. If, however, you do not accept cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of the Services. For example, we may not be able to recognize your computer, and you may need to log in every time you visit.

Using pixel tags and other similar technologies: Pixel tags (also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) may be used in connection with some Services to, among other things, track the actions of users of the Services (including adult accountholders that may receive emails from us), measure the success of marketing campaigns and compile statistics about usage of the Services and response rates.

Analytics: We use third parties, including Google Analytics, which use cookies and similar technologies to collect and analyse information about use of the Services and report on activities and trends. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to www.google.com/policies/privacy//, and opt out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

IP Address: Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). An IP address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the Services, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. We use IP addresses for the purposes of providing support for the internal operations of the Services, such as calculating usage levels, diagnosing server problems, and administering the Services. We may also derive your approximate, general, location from your IP address.

From you: Information such as your communications preference may be collected from adult accountholders when they voluntarily provide it.

By aggregating information: Aggregated Personal Information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Services.

How We May Use and Disclose Other Information

We may use and disclose Other Information for any purpose, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. In some instances, we may combine Other Information with Personal Information. If we do, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information if it is combined.

Third Party Services

This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any site or service to which the Services link. The inclusion of a link on the Services does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates.

In addition, we are not responsible for the information collection, use, disclosure or security policies or practices of other organizations, such as Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Google, Microsoft, or any other app developer, app provider, social media platform provider, operating system provider, wireless service provider or device manufacturer, including with respect to any Personal Information you disclose to these or other organizations.

Choices and Access
Your choices regarding our use and disclosure of your Personal Information

In addition, in your user settings, you may opt-out of receiving emails letting you know that a Lab has been shared.

We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you opt-out of receiving marketing-related emails from us, we may still send you important administrative messages, from which you cannot opt-out.

LearnLab will try to comply with your requests as soon as reasonable.

Please note that we may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting a change or deletion. There may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed.
Retention Period

We will retain your Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
Cross-border transfer

Your Personal Information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers, and by using the Services you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country.
