THIS LIMITATION APPLIES WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER BASIS, EVEN IF THE EDCHECK GROUP HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. SUCH LIMITATION SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY AND TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

EdCheck reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will cooperate with EdCheck in asserting any available defenses.

Disclaimer of Endorsement

Reference herein or on the website to any products, services, processes, hypertext links to third parties or other information by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply its endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation by EdCheck. Product and service information are the sole responsibility of each individual vendor.

International Use

Choice of Law and Forum

These Terms & Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware, excluding its conflicts of law rules. You expressly agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any claim or action arising out of or relating to these Terms & Conditions or your use of the Materials and this website shall be initiated and maintained only in the state and federal courts located in Delaware, and you further agree and submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim or action, unless otherwise specifically agreed to by the parties in writing.

Severability and Integration

These Terms & Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and EdCheck with respect to the Materials and this website. If any part of these Terms & Conditions is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed in a manner consistent with applicable law to reflect, as nearly as possible, the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. 

Termination 

EdCheck reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to the Materials or to all or part of this website, with or without notice. For further information and/or questions regarding the Materials or this website, please contact us at info@edcheck.app.

Student Privacy

When EdCheck is used by a School or authorized school officials for an educational purpose, EdCheck may collect or have access to Student Data that is provided by the School or by the Student. "Student Data" is personal information that is directly related to an identifiable Student and may include "Educational Records" as defined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act ("FERPA"), 20 U.S.C. § 1232(g) (sometimes also herein referred to as “Personal Information”).

Confidentiality

EdCheck agrees to treat all Personal Information related to delivering school services as confidential and not to share it with third parties other than as described in these Terms and in our Privacy Policy.

Student Data Access

You agree you are authorized to grant EdCheck access or to collect Student Data for the purpose of providing the Service. When operating on behalf of a school in the U.S., EdCheck shall collect and process Student Data as a School Official with a legitimate educational interest pursuant to FERPA 34 CFR Part 99.31(a)(1). As between the parties, the School or the Student owns and controls the Student Data. EdCheck does not own or control, or license such Student Data, except as to provide the Service and as described in these Terms.

Personal Information and Student Data Consents and Authority

If you receive access to EdCheck through your school ("School User"), you represent and warrant that you have provided appropriate disclosures to your School and to your parents, if applicable, regarding your sharing such Personal Information with EdCheck. Both Parties agree to uphold their obligations under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act ("FERPA"), the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment ("PPRA"), and the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act ("COPPA") and applicable State laws relating to Student Data privacy. EdCheck relies on each School to obtain and provide appropriate consent and disclosures, if necessary, for EdCheck to collect any Student Data, including the collection of Student Data directly from students under 13, as permitted under COPPA. You agree to comply with these Terms and all laws and regulations governing the protection of Personal Information, including children's information, and the sharing of Student Data and Education Records and to notify EdCheck of any additional requirements relating to your specific jurisdiction.

Use of Student Data

By submitting or providing us access to Student Data, you agree that EdCheck may use the Student Data solely for the purposes of (i) providing the Service, (ii) improving and developing our Service, (iii) enforcing our rights under these Terms, and (iv) as permitted with the School's or the User's consent. EdCheck shall not sell Student Data or use Student Data to engage in targeted advertising.

Student Data Retention and Deletion Requests

Schools may request that we delete Student Data in our possession at any time by providing such a request in writing, except that EdCheck shall not be required to delete content a Student shared to public areas of the Service. We shall respond to the deletion request as soon as possible, but in most instances within 45 days, other than for data stored on backup tapes which shall be deleted in the ordinary course of business. We are not required to delete data that has been derived from Student Data so long as it has been anonymized such that it does not reasonably identify an individual. Similarly, we are not required to delete information which a Student or parent has saved or transferred to a consumer plan.

Data Breach Notification

We have implemented administrative, physical and technical safeguards designed to secure Personal Information, including Student Data, from unauthorized access, disclosure and use. In the event we have a reasonable, good faith belief that an unauthorized party has gained access to or been disclosed Student Data (a "Security Event"), that we have collected or received through the Service, we will promptly notify the School. If, due to a Security Event which is caused by the acts or omissions of EdCheck or its agents, a notification to an individual, organization or government agency is required under applicable privacy laws, the School shall be responsible for the timing, content, and method of any such legally-required notice and compliance with such laws and EdCheck shall indemnify the School for costs related to legally-required notifications. With respect to any Security Event which is not caused by the acts or omissions of EdCheck or its agents, EdCheck shall reasonably cooperate with School's investigation of the Security Event, as School requests, at School's reasonable expense. EdCheck shall be responsible for the timing, content, cost and method of notice and compliance with such laws as they relate to User accounts that are not associated with a School account.

Pricing

EdCheck reserves the right to determine final prevailing pricing. Please note the pricing information published on the website or app may not reflect the prevailing pricing. EdCheck, at its sole discretion, may make promotional offers with different features and different rates to any of our customers. These promotional offers, unless made to you, shall have no bearing whatsoever on your offer or contract. EdCheck may change the fees for our service or application, as we deem necessary for our business. We encourage you to check back at our website periodically if you are interested about how we charge for the service or application.

School Fees

Schools may work with EdCheck to contract EdCheck Services. EdCheck reserves the right to charge fees for access to new EdCheck Services in its sole discretion. In no event will schools be charged for access to any new EdCheck Services, unless EdCheck obtains their prior agreement to pay such fees. If schools do not consent to the payment of such fees, however, EdCheck may prohibit their access to those paid Services. Details regarding the services you will receive in exchange for the payment of fees, as well as any payment Terms & Conditions that apply, will be disclosed to you prior to your agreement to pay such fees. All such terms will be deemed to be a part of (and are hereby incorporated by reference into) these Terms.
