Overview & Privacy Philosophy
This Policy does not apply to websites or services of third-parties that you may access through Eddy including Google Classroom and other providers of learning assessments, content and/or services. These websites or services have their own privacy policies. We encourage you to review those policies before accessing any third-party website or services or providing them with personal information.

Collection of this information from you is necessary to provide the Services and allow you to access and use Eddy. You may revoke our access to your Integrated Service account at any time by updating the appropriate settings in the account preferences of your Integrated Service account.
Additionally, you may input information into Eddy when you use the Services. Examples of this type of information may include: your mobile phone number and email addresses for others with whom you want to share Eddy information, information about your child’s interests, learning needs and goals, and “to-dos” for you or others associated with their learning.
