Information We Collect and How We Use It

Coursetune users are administrative and faculty members, stakeholders, business professionals, and accrediting associations. Coursetune is not a student-facing application and therefore does not collect any personal or identifiable information of children. We collect user personal information when you set up an account or when your organization creates accounts for users. Account setup and usage of the product or services indicates consent to customer communications in the form of notifications requested by the user, product updates, and announcements. Users may opt out of marketing communications. See “4. Your Rights and Access to Your Information” for more on our opt-out policy.

Coursetune only collects information that is relevant and not excessive for the purposes for which it is to be processed. Personal information includes full name, e-mail address, and organization department. This information is only used by Coursetune to complete the service provided. Data generated by the website or mobile application from which personally identifiable information and attributes about any user may be used by Coursetune for lawful purposes, including, without limitation, product and service improvement or development, general product and service analysis, benchmarking, development of best practices, and/or educational research or statistical assessment. To provide customers with the best products and services possible, Coursetune applications do not honor CalOPPA Do Not Track requests while within the product. Usage of the product indicates consent to this exception.

When you use our applications, we automatically collect additional information such as the type of desktop or mobile device that is being used, operating system version, and the device identifier (or “UDID”).
