Screencastify, LLC (we, us, our) collects and uses information in order to operate Screencastify. This policy explains how we do this and applies to everyone who uses Screencastify or creates a Screencastify account (the “Services”).
Information we collect from you:
We strive to collect the minimum amount of data required to operate Screencastify and provide our services.
We use your information only for the following purposes:
We will never use your information for targeted advertising. We do not build a personal profile of you other than for supporting authorized educational or school purposes, or as authorized by you.
If you are a School or School Representative we will work with you as far as we are legally able to accommodate your directions regarding our treatment of personal data belonging to your Students and ensuring that you maintain control of such Student information as may be required by applicable law, including FERPA.
This includes adhering to a School’s requests after Screencastify is no longer in use by a School or School Representative or after this policy is terminated or expires in relation to transfers of students’ personal data, deleting students’ personal data and making sure that any third parties that work in connection with Screencastify do the same, in each case subject to our legal requirements regarding the use, storage and transfer of such data.
We never rent, sell or license your information.
We don’t share your information except:
Additionally, Screencastify has taken and upholds the Student Privacy Pledge per the terms consistent on studentprivacypledge.org.
We use security and technology measures consistent with industry standards to try to protect your information and make sure that it is not lost, damaged or accessed by anyone who should not see it. Your data is stored in Google Cloud in the United States. To learn more about Google Cloud’s security measures, please visit https://cloud.google.com/security. Despite our security measures, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information.
In the unlikely event of an unauthorized disclosure of your data we will notify you (either directly or through your School or School Representative) in accordance with our legal or contractual requirements.
If you use some features (like video editing) with recordings stored on Google Drive, we may transfer and process these recordings on remote systems as required to deliver or to speed up the respective feature. We delete any recordings from remote systems immediately after they have been processed.
For Schools that utilize certain features, including the watch page, Screencastify may host videos created by your authorized users for defined periods of time, but you will still have the ability to redundantly store your videos on other third party services.
You may opt-out of receiving certain email communication with us by clicking the unsubscribe link contained in the email. Please note that if you opt out, we may still send you transactional emails related to your account or account maintenance.
You can ask us for a copy of your personal information, which we will send to you as soon as possible (but within 45 days, if possible). We may require you to provide verification of your identity before providing a copy of the information we hold.
You can also ask us to correct any information we hold about you that is inaccurate. If you would like us to send you a copy of your information or correct your information, please email us at email@example.com.
You can also ask us to delete your account and all the associated personal data held by Screencastify by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may not able to remotely delete videos created with Screencastify that are not hosted by Screencastify, as these are fully under the user’s control.
If you are a School, you may request to review your students’ information, have it deleted, and refuse further data collection by emailing us at email@example.com. If further data collection is stopped, those individuals may no longer be able to use Screencastify.
California law grants additional privacy rights to California residents. In particular, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) requires businesses to disclose, for the past 12 months, (i) the categories of personal information collected, (ii) the sources of the collected personal information, (iii) the purposes for which the collected personal information is used, (iv) the categories of personal information disclosed for a business purpose, and (v) the categories of any personal information sold. Screencastify provides these disclosures in the following table. (Note that Screencastify does not sell any personal information, even under the broad CCPA definition of a “sale.”)
California residents also have the rights described below. We will not discriminate against any California resident who exercises these rights.
Right to access/know. You may request from us a list of (i) the personal information that we have collected about you, and (ii) the categories of third parties to whom we have disclosed your personal information. You have the right to up to two (2) access requests each twelve (12) months.
Right to delete your personal information. You may request, at any time, that we delete your personal information.
You may contact us to exercise these rights by sending a request from the email address associated with your Screencastify account or with other information sufficient to locate your account to firstname.lastname@example.org. To ensure the privacy and protection of individuals, we are required to verify your identity or otherwise authenticate your request(s). Please note that, under the CCPA, we are not required to grant a request to access/know or a request to delete with respect to personal information obtained from you in your role as an employee, owner, director, officer or contractor of a company and within the context of Screencastify providing its services to such company.
If you are located in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), the United Kingdom (UK), or Switzerland, you have certain additional rights with respect to your personal information under the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (the “GDPR”), and this section applies to you:
Legal Basis for Processing. When we process your information we do so in reliance on the following legal bases: (i) to provide you with our services and otherwise perform contractual commitments to you, (ii) when we have a legitimate interest in processing your personal information to operate our business or protect our interests (for example, communicating with you, improving our products or conducting data analytics), (iii) to comply with our legal obligations, and (iv) when we have your consent to do so, provided that you may withdraw such consent at any time.
Right to Withdraw Consent. In the event you provide your consent for us to process your personal data, you may withdraw your consent at any time by emailing email@example.com.
Marketing. Screencastify does not process personal data for the purpose of marketing without first obtaining your express, opt-in consent or having a legitimate interest for doing so. You have the right to object to the processing of personal data for marketing purposes at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Category Personal Data. “Special Category Data” is any data that reveals your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious, moral or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, political views, the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of identifying a person, and data concerning health or a person’s sex life and/or sexual orientation. The data Screencastify collects and processes does not qualify as Special Category Data, and Screencastify does not intend to collect any Special Category from you. Please refrain from sending us any Special Category Data.

In the event we secure your consent to do so, you have the right to object to the processing of personal data via automated decision making at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
Transfer to Third Parties and Countries. Personal data that we collect or receive may be transferred to and/or processed by third parties that are located outside of the EU, EEA, UK, or Switzerland, some of which authorities in those regions may not consider to have an adequate level of protection for personal data. Screencastify will only transfer data subject's personal data to third-parties located outside of the EU, EEA, UK, or Switzerland when it has ensured appropriate safeguards for such personal data through use of the standard contractual clauses or other approved methods. Screencastify offers European Union model clauses (“Model Clauses”) also know as Standard Contractual Clauses to meet the adequacy and security requirements for customers that operate in the EEA, UK or Switzerland and for other international data transfers as relevant. A copy of our standard data processing addendum incorporating the Model Clauses is available here for customers to sign and append to their Screencastify services agreement as necessary.
Data Retention. See the section below entitled Retaining and Deleting Information.

Subject to certain limitations, you have the right to request access to the personal information we hold about you and to receive your data in a portable format, the right to request that your personal information be corrected or deleted, and the right to object to, or request that we restrict, certain processing. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Users under 16 years of age. We do not knowingly collect information from users under 16 years of age unless you are a Student using Screencastify at the direction of your School in which case we are processing your information solely at the direction of your School and for school purposes.
We don’t retain your information for longer than we need to for the purposes listed in this policy. We may delete certain personal and usage data if you haven’t used your account for more than 2 years. We will never delete any videos created with Screencastify.
In order to provide this feature, we access and store certain user information from YouTube (hereby referred to as "YouTube Data"), including your channel name(s), channel ID, channel thumbnail URL, and uploaded video URL.
