Privacy Policy

The Oxford Revise App is brought to you in a partnership between Oxford University Press and Zzish Ltd. Zzish Ltd delivers this service to you under this Privacy Policy and linked Terms of Service.

Zzish ("Zzish") values your privacy. At Zzish, we provide educational software that school leaders, teachers, parents and students can use to help improve student learning. Our software for teachers helps them use data to understand student learning gaps and track each student’s progress over time so that they can more easily personalise teaching to students. Our software for students provides courseware that uses data to help students master topics and learning objectives within a course. Our software for school leaders helps them use data to track the progress of classes and so provide timely and targeted help where it is needed most.

In this Privacy Policy ("Policy"), we describe how we collect, use, and disclose information that we obtain about visitors to the websites we operate (the “Websites”), users of our software applications created by us for use on or through computers and mobile devices (the "Apps"), and users of the services available through our Websites and Apps (collectively, the "Services").

We provide these Websites, Apps and Services to you under our own brands of Quizalize and Zzish and also under the brands of our partners.

By visiting our Websites, using or downloading our Apps, or using any of our Services, you agree that your personal information will be handled as described in this Policy. Your use of our Websites, Apps, or Services, and any dispute over privacy, is subject to this Policy and our Terms of Service (http://www.oxfordrevise.com/termsofservice.html), including its applicable limitations on damages and the resolution of disputes. The Terms of Service are incorporated by reference into this Policy.

What Information Do We Collect About You and Why?

We may collect information about you directly from you and from third parties, as well as automatically through your use of our Websites, Apps or Services.

Information We Collect Directly From You

Teachers

Certain areas and features of our Websites, Apps, and Services may require registration. To register, teachers must provide an email and password. We also may collect additional optional information from you, including first name, last name, primary role, what you teach, and where do you teach, though you are not required to provide us with this information. If you make a purchase on our Websites or Apps, you must provide your email address and password, credit card information, and name on card.

Parents

We do not explicitly offer any Websites, Apps, or Services for parents, but permit parents to use our Websites, Apps and Services with their own children under the role of a teacher. In this case we will collect the same information about you as we do for teachers.

Students under direction from a teacher

Many students use our Websites, Apps or Services under the supervision and direction of a teacher. Teachers choose the mechanism by which students register and gain access to the activities assigned by the teacher. The four mechanisms are: a) by entering a unique class ID and entering or selecting their real name, b) by using an email address and password, c) by single sign on using an existing Google account and d) by single sign on using an existing Microsoft account. For mechanism a_ we collect and store the student’s name. For mechanisms b), c) and d), we collect and store the student’s email address. In all cases we may collect the student’s name and other personal information as directed by the teacher. We only use this information to provide the service to the teacher and do not use this information for any other purpose.

Students for independent home learning

Many students use our Websites, Apps or Services directly themselves for independent learning at home. Four mechanisms are possible for students who sign up as independent learners: a) by using a non personally identifiable username and password, b) by using an email address and password, c) by single sign on using an existing Google account and d) by single sign on using an existing Microsoft account. During the sign up process we ask the student for their date of birth so that we may determine the permissible mechanism for them to register. We do not record the date of birth, but we do record the school year in which they were born so that we can personalise their experience using our Websites, Apps and Services and show them appropriate courses and learning material for their age group.

For children aged 12 or under we only allow them to register using mechanism a). This is so that we do not record any personally identifiable information about the student. During registration, we ask students aged 12 or under to optionally enter an email address so that they can recover their password in future, however we only record a one way hash of this password on our servers in order to ensure that we do not store any personally identifiable information on the student. During registration, we also ask students aged 12 or under to enter an email address of a parent so that we can send an email to parents informing the parent that their child is using the Website, App or Service, however we do not store the parent email address and use this email address solely for the purpose of informing the parent that their child is using the Website, App or Service.

For children aged 13 to 18 we ask the student to optionally enter an email address of a parent so that we can inform the parent that their child is using the Website, App or Service. We store this parent email address and may use this email address from time to time to send the parent further information about the Website, App or Service and information on their child’s use and activity on the service. We do not use the parent email address for any other purpose.

Information We Collect Automatically

We may automatically collect the following information about a child’s use of our Websites, Apps, or Services through cookies and other technologies: domain name; browser type and operating system; web pages viewed; links clicked; the length of time spent on our Websites or Apps; the length of time our Services are used; Google Analytics statistics; the referring URL, or the webpage that led a user to our Site; language information; device name and model; operating system type, name, and version; and activities within our Websites and Apps. We may also collect IP address, device identifier or a similar unique identifier from users of our Apps and Websites, including children; we only use such identifiers to support the internal operations of our Websites and Apps and do not use such identifiers to collect information about users outside of our Websites or Apps. We may also collect location information from teacher users of our apps and may combine the information we automatically collect from teachers with the information we collect directly.

How We Use Your Information

As well as the use of registration information as described above, we use the information that we gather about you for other purposes such as the following:

We have implemented a variety of security measures to protect the personal information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

Access to My Personal Information

Teachers and independent student users may view and amend personal information that you have submitted by logging into your account and updating your profile information. Your profile information can typically be viewed and modified by logging into your account, clicking on your name at the top right of the user interface and selecting “Account Settings”. The exact process may be different depending on the Website, Application or Service used.

Please note that copies of information that you have updated, amended or deleted may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Websites or Apps for a period of time.

Please note that it may take up to 10 business days for us to process opt-out requests. If you opt-out of receiving emails about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, we may still send you e-mails about your account or any Services you have requested or received from us.
