AUGUST SCHOOLS PRODUCT PRIVACY STATEMENT

Introduction

August Schools, Inc. (“August Schools”) provides its electronic health record management platform (“Product”) that allows its enterprise customers’ (any, a “Customer”) personnel to track medical treatment provided to students.  This Product Privacy Statement (“Privacy Statement”) explains how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise process personal information on our Customers’ behalf in connection with the Product (collectively, the “Services”).  As a service provider and data processor, August Schools provides the Services to Customers.  August Schools’ Customers are the data owners and data controllers with respect to such information processed through the Services.  This Privacy Statement does not apply to any websites or other online services that do not link to this Privacy Statement.  To the extent August Schools shares information with the Customer as this Privacy Statement describes, this Privacy Statement does not apply to the Customer’s subsequent use of that information.  BECAUSE AUGUST SCHOOLS DOES NOT CONTROL THE PRIVACY PRACTICES OF THE RELEVANT CUSTOMER, YOU SHOULD READ AND UNDERSTAND THE RELEVANT CUSTOMER’S DESCRIPTION OF ITS PRIVACY PRACTICES.

August Schools’ processing of information in connection with the Services is governed by this Privacy Statement and the relevant Customer agreement.  In the event of any conflict between this Privacy Statement and the relevant Customer agreement, the relevant Customer agreement will control to the extent permitted by applicable law.

This Privacy Statement is not a substitute for any privacy notice that the relevant Customer may be required to provide to its personnel, authorized users, students or other individuals.

  • Information provided to us by the Customer about its authorized users. This may include business contact information, such as name, email address, and phone number.

  • Information provided to us by authorized users. This may include personal information that end users provide when they register for an account or create a user profile (such as name, email address, telephone number, account username, account password), contact customer support, or otherwise correspond with us by phone, email, or other means.

  • Information about authorized users’ use of the Services. This may include information about authorized users’ use of the Services, including computer or mobile device operating system type and version number, manufacturer and model, device identifier, browser type, screen resolution, IP address, general location information such as city, state or geographic area; and information about authorized users’ use of and actions on the Services, such as pages you viewed, how much time was spent on a page, navigation paths between pages, information about activity on a page, access times, and length of access. This information is collected using cookies and similar technologies.

    • The Service will only use access to read Gmail message bodies and Google calendars (including, in both instances, any attachments) to help you organize the details of the people with whom you exchange email and your daily activities.

    • The Service will not transfer this Google data to others unless doing so is necessary to provide and improve user-facing features, comply with applicable law, or as part of a merger, acquisition or sale of assets (or the contemplation of such transaction).

    • The Services will not use Google data for serving advertisements.

    • The Services will not allow humans to read this data unless (i) we have your affirmative agreement for specific messages/calendar entries; (ii) it is necessary for security purposes such as investigating abuse; (iii) it is necessary to comply with applicable law; or (iv) it is necessary for the Services’ internal operations and even then only when the data have been de-identified, aggregated, and/or anonymized.

  • How August Schools Responds to Do Not Track Signals

     

    Some Internet web browsers transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which your web browser communicates.

     

    There is currently no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals.

     

    Currently, August Schools does not take action in response to these signals.

Third-Party Products and Services

The Services may integrate with or enable access to third party tools.  End users that register, install or access any third-party tools may be required to accept privacy notices provided by those third parties.  Please review those notices carefully, as August Schools does not control and cannot be responsible for these providers’ privacy or information security practices.
