On our main site we collect personally identifiable information, like names, postal addresses, email addresses, etc., when voluntarily submitted by our visitors. Personally identifiable information about children under the age of 13 can only be submitted to True Progress by a parent or guardian of the child, or by a school staff member if the staff member has been authorized by a parent or guardian to submit such personally identifiable information. We do not solicit or knowingly collect personally identifiable information directly from children under the age of 13; if you are under the age of 13, do not provide us any information about yourself.
We also collect personal information when a school or district creates accounts for administrators, teachers, and students. We only collect information that is relevant and not excessive for the purposes for which it is to be processed. Personal information includes information that can identify you. For teachers this includes full name, e-mail address, and school name. For students, this includes full name, user ID, and school name. Additional optional demographic data may be entered for students by school or district staff that may include gender, birth date, ethnicity, special education, instructional language, participation in free lunch programs, Title 1 status or other demographic variables created by the school or district.
Student accounts are typically created by teachers or school administrators. COPPA states that teachers may act in place of a parent in deciding whether to give consent. By creating the student account on the Track My Progress website, staff members are providing consent for True Progress to store personal data about those students. Students and parents do not have access to the administrative component of the Track My Progress assessment system where student accounts are created.
Personal information about children can only be entered by school personnel or by True Progress personnel acting on their behalf. There is no way for children using Track My Progress to enter or store personal information on our website. Track My Progress collects and stores data created by student use of the Track My Progress assessment which is linked to each student’s personal information. This personal information is required for student participation so that school staff members can view assessment data.
Parents and legal guardians can request to see the personally identifiable information that we have collected about their children. Parents and legal guardians may also ask to have that information deleted, and can inform us that they do not consent to any further collection or use of their child’s personally identifiable information.
Personally identifiable information that we collect and identify with you is used to fulfill specific requests that you make, unless you give us permission to use it in another manner, for example to add you to one of our mailing lists. We may also use your personally identifiable information to assist in the prevention and investigation of fraudulent and criminal activity. We do not use your personally identifiable information in any other manner.

We may share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (1) required by law; or, (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or, (3) investigating fraud which has already taken place. The information is not provided to these organizations for marketing purposes. In the event of a merger or acquisition of True Progress, the sale of substantially all of its assets related to the operation of this site, or other change of corporate control, information collected through this site may be transferred to or controlled by the surviving or successor entity.
