Students must be invited to a Readlee class by a Teacher via a class link, class code, or assignment link to use the platform. The student’s information may be entered to create an account by a Teacher. In some cases, the information to create a student’s account is populated from the student’s account with a third party sign-in service, such as their Google Classroom or Clever account.

Advertising and Marketing Information: Readlee collects information related to your advertising and marketing preferences such as your preferences for receiving communications about our activities, events, and publications, and details about how you engage with our communications.

HOW DOES READLEE SHARE MY INFORMATION?
We use a small number of third-party services in order to operate and improve Readlee, such as Amazon Web Services, a data center operator that manages our servers, and a notification service that helps us send you messages about your account. These services need access to your information in order to work (i.e. your email address is required to send you email), but are contractually prohibited from using that information for any other purpose other than to provide the Service.
Readlee may disclose your information to a third party to comply with applicable laws or regulations, or a valid legal request - including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. If we are going to release your data, we will do our best to provide you with notice in advance by email, unless we are prohibited from doing so by law.
Readlee may disclose student Account Information to the student’s school district upon request, as required by FERPA.
Teachers may choose to publish Readings they create to the Readlee Library or share them with other Teachers. If you choose to do so, the Reading and your Profile may be shared publicly. No student responses to Readings are ever shared publicly.
We may share your information with a small number of third-party analytics services (such as Google Analytics, Amplitude, and Fullstory) to improve our Service and your experience.
We may disclose or transfer your Account Information and Readings in connection with the sale, merger, bankruptcy, sale of assets or reorganization of Readlee.

CAN TEACHERS SHARE STUDENT AND CLASS READING INFORMATION?
Readlee is designed to promote safe sharing. Teachers control who can see assignments or comments or access a student’s account by authorizing other Teachers to connect to that student’s account. Teachers can only authorize other Teachers in their school and solely within the purpose of the Service. We use strict authorization methods on our backend servers to ensure data is only authorized to the right teachers.
Based on the jurisdiction you are in, you may have certain rights, including the right to access, correct, or delete any of your personal information collected by Readlee. Remember, if you are a Teacher, you can update the information associated with your account directly by logging into your account and viewing the Account Settings tab on your profile. If you are a parent and want to correct, edit, download, or update information about a student, you can work directly with your Teacher. You may also contact us at email@example.com.
If you request that your account or any content submitted to Readlee be deleted, Readlee may still retain information for up to 60 days to provide customer support and prevent accidental deletion, unless otherwise required by law.
Please be aware that FERPA requires us to retain student education records once a valid request to inspect those records has been made.
Notice for Nevada Residents - If you are a resident of Nevada, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of certain personal information to third parties who intend to license or sell that personal information. Readlee does not sell personal information. If you have questions you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Nevada Do Not Sell Request” and providing us with your name and the email address associated with your account.
