YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES
Depending on the jurisdiction and laws applicable to our processing of your personal information, you may have various rights with respect to our processing of your personal information. These rights may include the right to access (including in a portable format), delete, and correct your personal information that we maintain, to withdraw your consent to our processing of your personal information where your consent is being relied upon, and to restrict and object to our processing of your personal information. While the United Kingdom is no longer a member of the European Union, an explanation of rights afforded under European Union data protection law (in English) is available on the website of the United Kingdom’s Information Commissioner’s Office. An explanation of rights afforded in certain cases to California residents under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 is available on the California Attorney General’s CCPA page found here. However, the applicability of these various laws and rights to you depends on a variety of factors and the principal responsibility of determining the applicability of these rights and the appropriate response to any requests or invocation of rights lies with the applicable QuickSchools customer. Their responsibilities include:
ensuring that those individuals whose personal information is processed by us on their behalf receive any required disclosures or notices;
determining the applicability and appropriate response to personal rights requests,
where applicable, determining the legal basis for processing the personal information;
determining when obtaining your consent to processing is required or advisable and obtaining that consent; and
making similar determinations about what rights are required or advisable to accommodate and the proper manner of responding to rights requests.
We then assist our customers in accordance with their instructions to us in these matters. In some cases, you may be able to directly perform certain rights requests yourself by logging into your account within our Service. However, some requests and questions will require our or our customer’s assistance. If you have questions about consent options, legal bases for processing your personal information, asserting rights with respect to the processing of your personal information, or similar questions and you are not able to address the issue yourself through the Service, you may contact the school organization through which you access the Service or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (650) 399-7075 and we will relay your request to the customer as necessary. In some cases, honoring your request will prevent us from providing the Service to you in whole or in part.
Right to Lodge a Complaint (EU). If our processing of your personal information is governed by the data protection laws of the European Union (e.g., the GDPR) and you believe there has been a violation of your rights under such data protection laws, you may file a complaint directly to your local Supervisory Authority. A list of Supervisory Authorities is available here.
RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We retain customer data including the personal information within it in accordance with the relevant customer agreement, our internal data retention policies, and our customer's instructions. Typically, we retain the customer data through the term of the customer's subscription to the Service and then delete or return it in coordination with the customer within a reasonable time thereafter. In certain instances, some customer data may be archived to meet legal requirements, to preserve and provide evidence in cases of litigation, or if otherwise required by law.
We maintain reasonable and appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect personal information in our Service from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction taking into account the nature and sensitivity of the personal information and risks involved in its processing. We update and test these security measures regularly. We restrict access to personal information within our company to those personnel who need to have access to the information for the purposes described in this policy. In addition, we train our employees about the importance of confidentiality and maintaining the privacy and security of personal information we collect and maintain.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES AND SERVICES
Customer data, including personal information within it, in the Service may be shared through customer-directed integrations of the Service with other third party services. When the information is processed by such other third party services or otherwise outside the Service, it is no longer governed by this policy. Such integrations do not imply any relationship, sponsorship, or affiliation between QuickSchools and these other services, nor does it imply any adoption or approval of the content or processing practices of such other services. QuickSchools does not have control over the policies or practices of these other services and is not responsible for their privacy practices or their content. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of any such other services to understand their personal information handling practices.
Your personal information submitted to the Service is stored by QuickSchools on its servers and on the servers of the third party cloud-based database management and hosting services QuickSchools uses in its operation of the Service located in the United States and in other countries where QuickSchools personnel or service providers may be located. Accordingly, personal information submitted to the Service from outside of the United States will be transferred to and maintained in the United States and such other countries. We take steps to ensure that your personal information receives an adequate level of protection in the jurisdictions in which we and our service providers process it. When dealing with international transfers, we comply with the GDPR by adopting the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Standard Contractual Clauses pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council. For more information on this, you may contact us at our contact information below.

PRIVACY SHIELD NOTICE
PLEASE NOTE: On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union invalidated Privacy Shield as a basis on which to properly transfer personal information from the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to the United States in compliance with EU data protection law. The Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield framework was later deemed inadequate as well. As a result of these decisions, the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks are no longer valid mechanisms to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the EEA and Switzerland to the United States. Notwithstanding this invalidation, we remain certified under Privacy Shield and continue to follow our obligations under that certification.
We have certified to and will adhere to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks through our adoption and implementation of the Privacy Shield Principles (the "Principles") and we commit to comply with those principles with respect to all personal information we receive from the EEA in reliance on the Privacy Shield. We have also designated JAMS as our Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Provider under the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Program. More information about the Privacy Shield, including the Privacy Shield Principles, can be found at www.privacyshield.gov. Our Privacy Shield certification can be found at www.privacyshield.gov/list.
Amendment. This Notice may be amended consistent with the requirements of the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks. When we update this Notice, we will also revise the "Last Updated" date at the top of this document.
