    Deletion is not reversible. If you have unused purchases you must request a refund before deleting your account (or before we delete it automatically as a stale account). Once an account is deleted, purchases are forfeit and non-refundable.
    You may add and delete students. When you delete a student, you delete the record of that student’s past work. To minimize privacy risk, we delete stale accounts according to the schedule in our Privacy Policy. A teacher who deletes a school purchased account without the permission of the school is liable to the school for the loss. Schools may authorize us or a teacher to delete a school-purchased account. We may, in our discretion, close or suspend your account at any time for any reason, with or without notice. Account closure is permanent and irreversible.

Terms for Schools

  • A. Personally Identifiable Data
    For the avoidance of doubt, we agree that we will not use student personally identifiable data to (a) engage in advertising targeted to students, (b) to amass a profile based on students for uses other than furthering you and our shared educational purpose of identifying, assigning, and recommending educational content for personalized and adaptive learning purposes in a way that does not limit student learning opportunities, (c) provide, free or for a charge, identifiable student information to others, except (i) to an acquirer of our assets for the continuation of Data-Core Pathmala, (ii) to a legal, regulatory, judicial, or public safety agency for a legitimate governmental purpose, and (iii) to our partners for the purpose of supporting our educational purposes (see our Privacy Policy). Data-Core Pathmala does not require student personally identifiable information to serve its educational purpose.
  • B. Choice of law and arbitration exception for schools that are government or public entities

Likewise, if you are prohibited by state law from entering into a binding arbitration agreement, that provision shall not apply to you. Finally, the indemnification, governing law, and venue provisions apply only to the extent permitted by your jurisdiction’s laws.
  • C. Purchase orders
    You may purchase a membership. Failure to pay the invoice for memberships shall result in termination of the membership.
  • D. Account ownership
    If a school purchases an account, the school owns the account and is agreeing to these terms. School accounts belong to the classroom for which they were purchased. Schools may transfer accounts they purchase between teachers if a teacher changes level, leaves the school, or goes on leave. The school may gift an account to a teacher.
    If a teacher previously purchased an account with out-of-pocket funds and the school purchases an extended or upgraded membership for that teacher, account ownership will be deemed to remain with the teacher and is not transferred to the school. Classroom licenses can only be used by one teacher at a time. Each teacher must have his or her own account.
    Any attempt to seize or transfer ownership inconsistent with this section shall be null and void unless supported by a notarized statement signed by both parties stating the correct ownership of the account or a court or arbitral order.
  • E. Use of school images or likenesses
    Data-Core Pathmala agrees that, absent the school’s prior written consent, it will not have any rights to (a) use any image or likeness of a school, including logos, emblems, or trademarks or (b) advertise or claim that the school endorses Data-Core Pathmala’s services.
  • F. Security
    Data-Core Pathmala engages in privacy and security by design and conducts periodical audits of its privacy and security practices. Details are in our Privacy Policy. Schools acknowledge and agree that Data-Core Pathmala uses portable computers and devices to access its servers and that such portable computers and devices are secured with passcodes and passwords and are subject to remote erasure in the case of loss. In the rare instance that student data is temporarily stored offline, the data is stored encrypted at rest.
    Schools agree that they are responsible for their secure use of Data-Core Pathmala, including providing adequate training on the use of secure authentication and providing employees with secure networks on which to use Data-Core Pathmala. You agree to use passwords for teacher accounts that are adequately secure to prevent intrusion. It is your responsibility to keep your login information confidential.
  • G. Breach response for schools
    For the purposes of these terms, breach means a breach of security leading to the unauthorized disclosure of the personally identifiable information of a school student or staff member. Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context, and purposes of data processing, Data-Core Pathmala shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk to which students and staff are exposed by a possible breach.

If we discontinue services, your resources may not be available to you. You agree that neither we nor our authors shall be liable to you or any third party if Data-Core Pathmala is changed, suspended or discontinued.
    We work hard to make sure our system is available, but there are a substantial number of factors beyond our control in providing the services, including browser updates, filtering software, school IT settings and more. As a result, we can’t guarantee that any or all features will always work or that Data-Core Pathmala will be continuously available to users.
    We and our suppliers are not liable to you for any errors or inaccuracies you find in or on Data-Core Pathmala; any service, system, or process delays, latencies, failures or interruptions; or any actions you take in reliance on us, our suppliers, or the content. Our and our suppliers’ liability to you is limited whether the harm to you was foreseeable or not. We and our suppliers are not liable to you for any special, exemplary, or punitive damages, including loss of data, revenue, and/or profits, costs, or expenses, including legal fees and expenses, regardless of the legal theory on which you claim liability is based, even if you have advised us or our supplier of the possibility of those damages.
    Our and our suppliers’ liability to you is limited to the amount actually paid by you to us, if any, for the product(s) at issue. If you are a supplier, we will not be liable to you for amounts in excess of proceeds due and payable by us to you for the six-month period preceding the claim.

You acknowledge and agree that we cannot ensure that either content or data will be protected from theft or misuse. We have no liability arising from a failure of any system or feature that limits the use of content or data.
    Because some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.
  • D. For your attorney (and all armchair attorneys)
    Rather than burden our users with technical, exhaustive, and precise references to the various intellectual property and related rights necessary, we instruct all attorneys reading this to understand that all necessary rights to take the actions described that are not stated explicitly are implied. Data-Core Pathmala, along with products available on it, are licensed, not sold, and ongoing access requires a current account.

  • F. Terminating Agreement
    This agreement is effective from your acceptance until terminated by you or us in writing or electronically. You terminate by ceasing to use Data-Core Pathmala. Any terms that by their nature are intended to apply indefinitely continue to apply, including but not limited, perpetual licenses, ownership provisions, warranties, disclaimers, indemnities, and limitations of liability.

This agreement is binding on and inures to the benefit of any successors and assigns.
  • H. Terms are not dependent of each other.

  • I. English Language
    It is the express wish of the parties that this Agreement and all related documents, including notices and other communications, be drawn up in the English language only.
