Privacy and Data Safety on YouHue
We believe you should always know what data we collect from you, how it’s used, and that you are in control of your data. We want to empower you to make the best decisions about how you and your students use YouHue.
YouHue is committed to being transparent with how we handle your information, in full compliance with laws that matter to you like GDPR, COPPA, and FERPA.
You should read this policy in full, but here are a few key points:
Personal Data We Collect:
First and Last Name (or first name + last initial, or simply initials) — We use this so teachers can identify each of their students on YouHue and so students can see their teacher on YouHue. Adults (like teachers or counselors) send us a list of the kiddos who will be using YouHue, then we enter their names into the app to create their accounts. Teachers may enter their name themselves. Student names are only used in the app and in our reports to teachers, which take the form of Google spreadsheet or PDF or email.
Teacher Email — We collect the emails of teachers, either through a Google spreadsheet, email, or teachers enter them directly into the app. We use the emails to keep in touch with our teachers about the YouHue program, also to create their accounts, send reports, and ask them for feedback on how we’re doing and how else we can help.
Teacher/parent username — When parents or teachers sign up for a demo account, they can enter a username. This username is only used to help us identify adult users on the app and connect with them for support purposes.
Password — Teachers and parents create a password on YouHue to secure their account and log in privately. They can do this when signing up, or by using the password recovery feature.
School/Organization Name — A teacher, school leader, parent, or counselor provides us with the name of their school or organization. This info is associated with their accounts and with student accounts. Having this name helps us create connections within a school community to support with program implementation and it helps us associate each teacher, student, and class with the correct school community.
Mood logs — YouHue uses mood tracking to help students understand emotions and communicate them to their teacher/counselor/parent. Each mood log consists of a mood name, mood description (as entered by the student) and a date/time. Logs are stored in the student’s journal so he/she can reflect on logs to understand the causes and effects of emotions. Logs are also shared with the student’s teacher/counselor/parent to help them understand the student’s needs, as well as how they can better connect for learning and wellness.
All our data is stored, using Heroku, on Amazon Web Services (AWS) servers in the US. Heroku and AWS help us keep our data stored and secure. No other third parties have access to our data, and the data is not used for any reason except those stated.
No third parties have access to YouHue data, except those which store and secure our data (AWS, Heroku).
How We Use the Information We Collect: We use the personal information we collect from students (or about students from teachers) to provide and improve the Service, for educational, security, and safety purposes, or as required by law. We will not require children to provide more personal information than is reasonably necessary in order to participate in the Service.
Data Retention: We will not retain student personal information for any longer than is necessary for educational purposes and legal obligations, or to provide the Service for which we receive or collect the student personal information. Additionally, we protect students with our industry-leading 3-Tier Student Data Protection Policy: (1) we collect only minimal information from students necessary to register for the Service, (2) we automatically delete their information after a year of inactivity, and (3) we delete students’ entire accounts if they’re inactive for more than twelve months. Note, however, some content within a student account will be kept after deletion of the account for school legal compliance reasons (e.g., maintenance of “education records” under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)). We store non-student user personal information for as long as it is necessary to provide products and Service to you and others. For non-student users, personal information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted or until we no longer need the data to provide the Service, whichever occurs first.
What Student Information is Shown Publicly? No student’s information or mood logs are made available or visible to the public through YouHue. Only the student, the student’s parents, and the student’s teachers or school leaders can see the student’s YouHue information. No child can log moods except through their student account. This can’t happen for children without either (1) the parent providing parental consent directly to YouHue or (2) the child’s teacher representing to YouHue that they have obtained any necessary parental consent.
A student’s mood logs are visible by that student’s teachers, parents, counselors or school leaders who have logged into their accounts and are associated with that particular class or school. They are not viewable by the general public, and not viewable by other students.
You own your data: We don’t own any content or information you provide or we receive — you (students, parents and/or schools) will own your content and information.
Security and Privacy by Design and Default: We use security industry best practices to protect personal information, including using encryption and other security safeguards to protect personal information.
Transparency and Choice: We will be transparent about our practices so that you can make meaningful choices about how your information is used. If we make a material change, we will provide prominent notice by posting a notice on our service or this website page and/or we will notify you by email (if you have provided an email address to us).
Right to Access and Correction of Data: We support access to and correction of student personal information by the student or their parent or legal guardian, either by 1) assisting the school in meeting its requirements for access by responding to requests we receive from schools, or 2) directly responding to requests from parents when the information is collected directly from a student and YouHue obtains the parent consent (not the school). Teachers, parents, school leaders and other users can contact us at email@example.com to access, correct or update their personal information, or they can use the features in their account settings to do so.
Student Data Privacy Statements
We work hard to ensure YouHue is a safe place for our students, and protecting their data is a top priority. We comply with current data protection law, which includes the EU's GDPR.
A person over the age of 18 may use YouHue only after giving their consent, only then is any personal data acquired or stored. People under the age of 18 may only use YouHue after their school's representative has confirmed that their parent or guardian as signed and returned the permission form which explains what YouHue is and what we do for classrooms, or if the school confirms “School Permission” on the student’s behalf. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about School Permission. A student's parent/guardian (or the student him/herself if over 16 years of age) has the right to withdraw consent at any time and request the removal of their data.
Data is maintained so it is up-to-date, accurate and secure.
The only data collected by YouHue is student name (or at the option of the school, simply first name / last initial or initials), school name, mood logs (mood, description, time/date), teacher name, teacher email, teacher password.
Student records, student information, and student-generated content (collectively, “student data”) are not the property of, or under control of, YouHue.
Data processed by YouHue is used for the sole purpose of helping teachers and parents better understand the needs of their students and to help students better understand emotions, practice communicating about their emotions, and managing their individual needs.
YouHue does not share data with any other parties beyond 1.) the student's school, 2.) the student's parent/guardian, and 3.) the YouHue data team.
Data collected: student name (we use first name/last initial or first initial/last name as often as possible), student class assignment, student school, and student's YouHue communications.
We protect your data, but it belongs to you. As a parent/guardian/school representative, you have the right to contact us (email@example.com) to ask questions about your student's data, alert us to an issue with the data, request a copy of your student's data, or request that your student's data be removed.
We respond to all requests within 7 business days (usually within 24 hours), and we comply with requests within 48 hours of confirming changes with 1.) the parent/guardian of the student 2.) the representative of the student's school.
Procedures by which a student, parent, or guardian may (a) review personally identifiable information in student records, student information, or student- generated content and (b) correct erroneous information, if any:
A student, parent, or guardian may contact the teacher or administrator at their school who is responsible for the student’s participation in the YouHue program.
This teacher or administrator can then request the materials from YouHue, or inform of the erroneous information to be corrected, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
YouHue will provide the materials, or confirmation of the correction, to the teacher or administrator.
The teacher or administrator passes the materials, or confirmation of the correction, on to the student, parent, or guardian.
YouHue shall take actions designed to ensure the security and confidentiality of student information, student records, and student-generated content.
YouHue has never had a data breech and we operate using some of the most advanced data protection technology available. In the unlikely case a data breech occurs, the school and parents/guardians of all impacted students will be notified within 7 days (most likely within 48 hours).
Procedures that YouHue will follow for notifying a local or regional board of education when there has been an unauthorized release, disclosure, or acquisition of student information, student records, or student-generated content:
YouHue will notify the board of education point of contact immediately upon confirmation of such an event. The notification will be made through email and phone.
Student information, student records, or student-generated content shall not be retained or available to YouHue upon completion of the contracted services unless a student, or parent or legal guardian of the student, choose to establish or maintain an electronic account with the contractor for the purpose of storing student- generated content.
Please read this Policy carefully. Your access to or use of any part of the Services will constitute your notice about our collection, use, and disclosure of your information in accordance with this Policy. If you do not wish for us to collect, use, and disclose your information in accordance with this Policy, please do not access or use the Services.
By using the Services, you are consenting to:
• the collection, use, and processing of information collected from the online accounts you connect to the Service;
• the sharing of anonymous transaction information with third parties;
• the sharing of personal information, including transaction information, with service providers and vendors;
This policy applies to information we collect:
i. through any of our Services;
ii. in email, text or other electronic messages between you and this App or Website;
iii. through mobile and desktop applications you download from this App or Website or from an application merchant, which provide dedicated non-browser-based interaction between you and this App or Website.
iv. when you interact with our advertising and applications on third-party websites and services, if those applications or advertising include links to this policy.
This Policy applies solely to information collected by us through the Services and does not apply to any third-party activities, including third-party websites linked from our Services, third-party social networking platforms or features we make available through our Services, or third-party ads displayed on our Services. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such third parties. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of those third parties.
YouHue is the responsible party or data controller regarding Personal Information collected through our Services. If you have any questions or concerns at any time about your data or privacy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
YouHue collects general and personal information about you when you use our Services and through other interactions and communications you have with us. We consider personal information to be information that can be traced directly back to and that identifies a specific individual or household, such as name, email address, and/or phone number, non-exclusively. We do not consider personal information to include information that alone does not allow a third party to easily identify a specific individual or household.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)
The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) prohibits online service providers from knowingly collecting personal information from children under 13 years of age without verifiable parental consent or notice as applicable (“Consent”). Children under the age of 13 are prohibited from using certain features of the Services without Consent.
We are committed to protecting children’s online privacy and complying fully with COPPA. We do not collect any personally identifiable information anywhere on the Sites or Apps except where expressly stated. We believe that children should be able to use the Internet in a safe, productive and efficient manner and should be afforded the highest protection available with respect to their Personal Information.
REGISTERING AN ACCOUNT
To set up a YouHue Edu account, Users are provided with a unique code by the YouHue Team. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), we ask for their age, and if they are under 13, we also ask for a parent or guardian’s email address to request parental consent. We do not ask Users who are under the age of 13 to enter any other personal information when setting up an account.
HOW DOES YOUHUE PROTECT CHILDREN’S PERSONAL INFORMATION
Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to us. COPPA protects the online privacy of children under the age of 13 (“child” or “children”); for more information about COPPA and generally protecting children’s online privacy, please visit OnGuard Online.
We take many special precautions to protect the privacy of children under 13.
• Consistent with the requirements of COPPA, we also ask for the child’s age, and a parent or guardian email address from the child so we can seek verifiable parental consent or provide parental notice (as applicable).
• We will not use parent emails provided this way to market our Services to the parent, unless the parent has opted in to email marketing or has separately created an account on our Services.
• At our websites, online services or apps intended for children, we do not collect personal contact information (like full name, e-mail address, phone number or home address) from children (the “Personal Information”) without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, except in limited circumstances authorized by law.
• We do not disclose any personal information about children to third parties, except to service providers necessary to provide the Service, as required by law, or to protect the security of the Service or other Subscribers.
• We collect some information (like IP address, mobile device UDID, operating system, etc.) automatically and use technology like cookies to provide functionality and support our operations. YouHue does not permit interest-based advertising on Sites or Apps directed to children under 13 or where we have actual knowledge that a child is under 13.
• We do not ask for more Personal Information than is necessary for a child to participate in an activity.
• We take steps to prevent children from posting or publicly disclosing Personal Information.
• Information collected from Children (including personal information and information collected automatically) is never used or disclosed for third party advertising or for any first- or third-party behaviorally targeted advertising, and children’s personal information is never sold or rented to anyone, including marketers or advertisers.
• If we discover that we have collected information from a child in a manner inconsistent with COPPA, we will take appropriate steps to either delete the information, or immediately seek the parent’s consent for that collection.
• Parents can ask us to update or delete their children’s Personal Information. Parents can also revoke their consent and refuse the further use or collection of Personal Information from their child.
HOW DO WE NOTIFY PARENTS?
• We let the parent know through the YouHue Permission Form that the parent’s consent is required for the collection, use, or disclosure of any personal contact information for the child (the “Personal Information”), and that we will not collect, use, or disclose any Personal Information from the child if the parent does not provide such consent;
• We set forth the additional items of Personal Information that we may collect from the child, or the potential opportunities for the disclosure of Personal Information, should the parent provide consent;
• We let parent know how the parent can provide verifiable consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of the information.
WHAT CHILDREN’S INFORMATION IS VISIBLE TO OTHERS?
YouHue is a platform that allows Users to share information about their current moods to other Users. Children will be able to share their current moods with selected friends, family and teachers. That is all. No personal information about Children will be made public, ever.
HOW LONG DOES YOUHUE KEEP CHILDREN’S INFORMATION?
We only keep a Child’s personal information for as long as his or her account is active, unless we are required by law to retain it, need it to ensure the security of our community or our Service, or to enforce our Terms. YouHue operates a 2-tier Child data protection policy to protect all Children’s information:
• Minimal information: As mentioned before, YouHue collects the minimal amount of information from Children necessary to create accounts on our Service. Consistent with the requirements of COPPA, we ask Children for their age, and a parent or guardian’s email address if they are under 13 years of age so we can seek verifiable parental consent or provide parental notice (as applicable). Beyond this information, the YouHue student account does not allow Children the ability to enter any additional personal information to set up an account. In addition to the information entered by the child, we automatically collect some information from any use of our Service as set forth in the “Information Collected Automatically” section.
• One-year deletion policy for mood logs.
To protect Children, YouHue sets limits on how long Children's mood statuses are retained. For all Children, mood logs older than 12 months are automatically deleted, unless their parent chooses to retain them by creating their own associated account.
• Deleting inactive accounts:
If a Child’s account is inactive for twelve months or more (meaning the Child has not given a mood status update for twelve months or more) YouHue will automatically delete the student account, including all personal information provided by the Parents of the Children.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a Child who has created a YouHue account and you did not receive an email seeking your consent or providing notice (as per COPPA), you can email us at email@example.com to have that child’s account deleted.
Any parents who want copies of their children’s personal information that we may have stored can contact us either by sending an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. At any time, parents can refuse permission to collect further personal information from their Children, and can request that we delete the personal information we have collected from their child by contacting us at email@example.com. Please keep in mind that deleting records may require us to terminate the account in question. Also remember that before we can share the information with you, or delete it per your request, we will need to verify your identity, for example by requiring that you provide acceptable forms of personal identification.
Process for parents accessing, deleting or withdrawing consent:
Should a parent wish to access or delete the information we've collected from their children they can do so by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The email must contain all of the following :
1) the parent and account holder's email address
2) the child's first and last name
3) The parent's relationship to the child.
4) Proof of identity of the parent.
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
There are currently two categories of Users on our Service: Children and other Users. We describe the information collected from Children under 13 in the section above. For other Users, we collect and store the following types of information:
• Contact Information: When you choose to provide us with your personal information through the Service in some other manner (e.g. when you send us an email asking a question, submit a support request, participate in a video testimonial about our Service, or choose to participate in any research efforts with YouHue to improve the Service).
INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY
The technologies and information we automatically collect include:
• Cookies and other similar technologies: A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. We (or our service providers) may use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit our Service including, clear GIFs (also known as “web beacons”), “tags”, “scripts”, and “cookies”. We use both session and persistent cookies: a session cookie disappears after you close your browser; a persistent cookie remains after you close your browser (although it can be removed) and may be used by your browser to identify you on subsequent visits to the Service. We may also use, collect and store information locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage. Like many services, YouHue uses these technologies to tailor the Service for you, and to help the Service work better for you.
• Device information: We collect device-specific information such as your operating system, hardware version, device settings, file and software names and types, battery and signal strength, and device identifiers. This helps us measure how the Service is performing, improve YouHue for you on your particular device, and send you push notifications if you’ve opted in to receive them.
• Log information: Like most online services, when you use our Service, we automatically collect and store certain information in our server logs. Examples include things like: Details of how you used our service, such as your activity on the Service, and the frequency and duration of your use of the YouHue App; IP Address; Device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL. This information helps us make decisions about what we should work on next - for example, by showing which features are popular.
HOW DOES YOUHUE USE THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?
We may use the Information we collect to:

WILL YOUHUE SHARE ANY INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?
• Other Subscribers You Share and Communicate with on YouHue: No Children’s profiles are made available to the general public through the Services. Users’ mood logs are only shown to other Users to whom you have added on YouHue via username or are connected on Facebook.
• Third-party integrations on our Service: When you use third-party apps, websites or other services that use, or are integrated with, our Service, they may receive information about what you post or share. For example, when you invite others via Facebook, these services receive the information that you share through this functionality, and information that you are sharing from YouHue. Information collected by these apps, websites or integrated services is subject to their own terms and policies.
• Analytics Services: We use analytics services, including mobile analytics software, to help us understand and improve how the Service is being used. These services may collect, store and use information in order to help us understand things like how often you use the Service, the events that occur within the application, usage, performance data, and from where the application was downloaded. A current list of analytics providers that we use is located HERE [PLEASE INSERT HYPERLINK] .
• Aggregated Information and Non-Identifying Information: We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly, including with the press for example, to demonstrate how YouHue is used, spot industry trends, or to provide marketing materials for YouHue. Any aggregated information shared this way will not contain any personal information.
• Legal Requirements: We may disclose personal information if we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to comply with the law, such as complying with a subpoena or other legal process. We may need to disclose personal information where, in good faith, we think it is necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of YouHue, our employees, our community, or others, or to prevent violations of our Terms of Service or other agreements. This includes, without limitation, exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection or responding to government requests. Please see our Disclosures Section Below.
• With your consent: Other than the cases above, we won’t disclose your personal information for any purpose unless you consent to it. Additionally, as discussed above, we will never sell or rent your personal information to advertisers or other third parties.
This refers to disclosures to our employees, officers, agents, suppliers or subcontractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out below.
We may disclose your Information:
• To the extent that we are required to do so by law;
• In connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
• In order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk);
• To the purchaser (or prospective purchaser) of any business or asset which we are (or are contemplating) selling;
• To any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that Personal Information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that Personal Information.
• For the purposes of a business deal (or negotiation of a business deal) involving sale or transfer of all or a part of our business or assets (business deals may include, for example, any merger, financing, acquisition, divestiture or dissolution transaction or proceeding). In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, personal information may also be transferred as a business asset. If another company acquires our company, business or assets, that company will possess the personal information collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding your personal information as described in this Policy.
• In the unlikely event that YouHue goes out of business, or files for bankruptcy, we will protect your personal information, and will not sell it to any third party.
HOW DOES YOUHUE PROTECT AND SECURE MY INFORMATION?
We take all reasonable technical and organizational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your Information. We store all the Information you provide on our secure (password- and firewall-protected) servers. In addition, your YouHue account is protected by a password. We will not ask you for your password except when you log into YouHue. You can help us protect against unauthorized access to your account by keeping your password secret at all times.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We work hard to protect our community, and we maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure of or access to personal information. In particular:
• Our engineering team is dedicated to keeping your personal information secure
• We periodically review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems;
• We continually develop and implement features to keep your personal information safe - for example, when you enter any information anywhere on the Services, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL/TLS) by default;
• We ensure passwords are stored and transferred securely using encryption.
• We automatically delete inactive Children’s accounts after a specific period of time.
Data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the full security of data sent over the internet. Although we make concerted good faith efforts to maintain the security of personal information, and we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our systems, no practices are 100% sure. Outages, human error, system failure, unauthorized use or other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time. If we learn of a security breach, we will attempt to notify you electronically (subject to any applicable laws) so that you can take appropriate protective steps; for example, we may post a notice on our homepage (www.YouHue.com) or elsewhere on the Service, and may send email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS
HOW CAN I ACCESS AND MANAGE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?
YouHue aims to provide you with easy access to any personal information we have collected about you. If that information is incorrect, we give you easy ways to update it, or to delete it, unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business (e.g., we need at least an email address for your account) or legal purposes.
• Updating Your Information: You may update, correct, or delete some of your profile information or your preferences at any time by logging into your account on YouHue and accessing your account settings page. You may have to verify your identity before you can do that. You may also, at any time, update, correct, or delete certain personal information that you have provided to us by contacting us at email@example.com. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe. Please note that while your changes may be reflected promptly in active content, users that have previously accessed the content may still have access to old copies cached on their device or may have copied and stored your content. In addition, we may retain a backup copy of the prior version for a limited period of time or for legal purposes.
• Accessing Your Child’s Information: You may update your Child’s information by logging into their account YouHue and updating it in their account settings page. You may also send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW CAN I DELETE MY ACCOUNT?

When you delete your account, we delete your profile information and any other content you provide in your profile (such as your username, password, and email address). Information that you have shared with others, others have shared about you, or content other users may have copied and stored, is not part of your account and may not be deleted when you delete your account.
WHAT COMMUNICATIONS WILL I RECEIVE FROM YOUHUE?
If you registered on YouHue, provided an email to us, or otherwise opted-in to receive communications from us, we may send you messages and updates regarding your account, including privacy and security notices, updates regarding the Service, and information regarding products, features or services from YouHue. These communications may include, but are not limited to, social media updates, SMS/MMS messages, push notifications, email, and postal mail. If you have an account with us, we’ll also use your email address to contact you for customer service purposes, or for any legal matters that arise in the course of business.

You can always unsubscribe from receiving any of our email or other communications whenever you’d like by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any YouHue email, or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, if we ever make significant changes to the types of personal information we collect from children, or how we use it, we will notify parents in order to obtain parental consent or notice for those new practices.
THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
The Services may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of third party websites.
YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits Subscribers of our software and services that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send e-mail to email@example.com.
DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which your web browser communications. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do if they receive these signals. YouHue currently does not respond to "Do Not Track" browser signals or similar mechanisms. If and when a standard is established, we may revise our policy on responding to these signals. Third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across sites when you visit the Sites or use the YouHue Service.
