- What Information does Hatch Inc. collect?
In order to use our Products, customers must create an account for themselves and for any of their employees, staff, students, children and parents (each a “User”) that interacts with the Products. In connection with these accounts, Hatch collects some Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) for each User. The kinds of PII we collect varies based on the kind of User, as described below:
- Customer or Subscriber Information. first name, last name, email address, phone number, and billing and payment information.
- Child and/or Student Information. first name, last name, date of birth, gender, grade, race, cognitive age, ethnicity, disability (limited to Individualized Education Plan (“IEP”) and/or Individualized Family Service Plan (“IFSP”), if applicable), picture, student identification number, and corresponding Teacher and Parent information associated with each child.
- Parent/Guardian Information. first name, last name, child’s name and relationship to Parent/Guardian; email address and/or phone number.
- Employee, Staff and/or Teacher Information. first name, last name, email address and/or phone number, teacher identification number, organization identification number, and site location.
- Administrator Information. first name, last name, email address and/or phone number, and site location.
Please note that depending on how you interact with the Product, you may fall under one or more different categories (for example, if you are both a Customer and a Parent). Your PII may be entered by you directly, or, alternatively, by another User – such as teacher or administrator – in order to grant you access to the Product, or to provide you with notices regarding the Product. If you are entering PII on behalf of a User other than yourself, you are responsible for obtaining the User’s express written consent.
We may use your PII to communicate with you. For example, we may use your email address to send you promotional email offers or email you about your use of the Products. Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps us improve our communications and Products. You may stop receiving communications from us by choosing the "unsubscribe" option at the bottom of our emails.
