This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, share, and use personal information about its users (“you” or “Users”) that we collect through the Services, and how you can exercise your privacy rights.

Square Panda may function in the capacity of a "processor" when we process certain personal data such as names, e-mail addresses, and other contact information on behalf of our Users to create your account (the "Account") and provide the Services. We function in the capacity of a "controller" when we send marketing materials that Users may choose to receive in accordance with applicable law, and in relation to Home Users.




We collect personal data through the Services. "Personal Data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, online identifier or a combination of otherwise non-identifiable factors that would reveal the identity of that natural person.

In some cases, we will ask for your permission so that we may process your Personal Data. For example, we will ask for your permission to send you our marketing newsletters. For Home Use, we will also obtain permission from the parent or guardian identified in the Account before creating an account for a child, in accordance with the applicable law.

However, in certain circumstances, applicable data protection laws allow us to process your Personal Data without needing to obtain your consent. Those situations might include:

Education Institutions:

When your educational institution agrees to use the Services, the Customer Administrator provides us with their first and last name, e-mail address, username and password, as well as the school/district name and address, including city, region or state, and country. We use that information to create your school or district Account. Through that Account, the Customer Administrator is able to provide a link for other Administrators and Teachers to access the Services.

Teachers and other Administrators provide us with the information necessary to create their Accounts. This includes your first and last name, username and password, e-mail address and school name. We may also request your gender, grade and employee ID. We use this information to create your Account, allow you to access your user profile, allow you to see your students' activity in the Services, and to respond to your requests to receive support, respond to questions, or to receive marketing and other communications from us.

At your option, you may also provide us with your gender, grade, country and phone number. With your permission, we may also use your phone number to contact you to provide you with information related to resolving an issue with the Services that you report to us.

Teachers also provide us with the first and last names of the students who will use the Services. They may also choose to provide a nickname, date of birth, gender, IEP, e-mail address for a legal guardian, languages, and a photo. Teachers may provide this information directly, or we may collect it via connection to the User's student information system, as authorized and configured by the User.

We use this information to permit students to access the Student Services and to provide the Services under the direction of their Teachers, and to allow Teachers to maintain a record of their students' work in the Services for their educational purposes.

Home use:

Parents create an Account in the Services by providing a first and last name, country, e-mail address, password, language preference, and in certain regions of the world, phone number, and, optionally, gender, and an age range.

To connect an Account to the child, we ask parents to provide their child's first name and date of birth. At the parent's option, they may also upload a photo of the child, which is used to personalize their experience, or an avatar may be selected from one we provide. They may also, optionally, provide the child's gender.


Special Note About Children's Data

Users and Parents may optionally provide their child's gender and photo, but we do not collect those directly from the child. 

Prior to collecting any personally identifiable information about or from a child, we will provide Users and Parents with notice explaining what information we may collect and requesting their consent prior to collecting it.

Parents may work directly with their school or district to review or modify information in their child's education record that may be stored by us. We will then work with parents and schools together to facilitate these requests, which should be sent to

Doing so will delete the selected child's data from the Account. Square Panda will be unable to restore that portion of the Account, at a later date.
