Schools Privacy

In some circumstances, we may permit a School to register Students to our service for the purpose of providing educational services.

School represents and warrants that School has the authority to provide consent for Rhymes with Reason to collect information from students before allowing students under 13 to access our Service, and that School has provided appropriate disclosures to students and parents regarding School’s sharing of Student Data with service providers such as Rhymes with Reason. We recommend that School provide a copy of our Privacy Policy to parents and guardians.
