STEM Fuse (optionally) captures personal information of students via our Educate online content management platform- educate.stemfuse.com. Any student personal information would be set up by verified members of a school or school district. This personal information may include student names and/or student email addresses, both of which are optional. The set-up method of student accounts can be done via teacher upload of class roster, or student creation of account via teacher class access code.
Only authorized members of the STEM Fuse Platform development team have access to student account information for account management purposes. STEM Fuse aligns with all educational data privacy acts. Any communication with or sharing of student personal information is prohibited.
Parents have the ability to request information, access, or removal of student accounts, by communicating with the school / district, or contacting STEM Fuse directly at email@example.com

STEM Fuse takes every precaution to protect our users’ information and email address. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and offline. All school request information forms are encrypted data using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is industry standard and it enables users to enter Personally Identifiable Information in a safe and secure manner. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information offline.
All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Employees must also use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to user information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every month, as well as any time policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy and what they can do to ensure our users’ information is protected.
Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment. If users have any questions about the security at our website, users can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

To allow students to access our online curriculum we require students to create accounts. To create the accounts we do require the student to provide their full name and email address. This information is only used to ensure accounts are unique, allow their teacher to identify the student within our online platform, and send automated emails needed for account creation and maintenance. STEM Fuse does not disclose any of this student information to outside parties and will never directly contact a student unless specifically instructed to do so by the teacher.
