2. How Foundry Uses and Shares Information

We share data within the Solution as needed to perform the service. For example, Student Data will be shared between and among the School Users, Students and Mentors as well as with others who have been authorized to access the content for an educational purpose. Sharing within the Solution will depend on the settings and functionality selected by the School. WonderED K-12 Academy only shares Personal Information with third parties in limited circumstances, described below. We will never share or sell Personal Information or Student Data with third parties for marketing purposes.

WonderED K-12 Academy uses and shares Personal Information in the following ways:

With consent.  We share Personal Information with the consent and at the direction of Schools and parents. A User may direct WonderED K-12 Academy to share specific information with another individual, for example, if a teacher directs WonderED K-12 Academy to send a communication to a Mentor, or a School User may be able to control data sharing functionality for all User accounts within that school district/board or school system. Parents should contact their child’s School with any questions about School-authorized data sharing functionality.

With our trusted vendors and third party service providers.  We may share Personal Information with certain trusted vendors, third party service providers and individuals to perform tasks on our behalf, but strictly for the purpose of carrying out their work for us, which may include business development, software design, hosting, customer support, accounting, and other similar services. Personal Information will be shared with these third parties as reasonably needed to perform their services to us, have policies consistent with ours, and under reasonable confidentiality terms.

Aggregated Data.  We will share information in an aggregated and/or anonymous form that does not reasonably identify you directly as an individual. For example, we may share aggregate data with other students, parents or Schools to display statistical data related to students in a particular classroom, school, district/board, or geographic location. We may also use aggregated or anonymized data to study and improve our Solution, user functionality, and product offerings. We may disclose your Personal Information as required or authorized by law or subpoena or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (i) comply with the law or a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us; (ii) to comply with or the lawful request of law enforcement; (iii) to enforce or apply our Terms of Service or other agreements or to protect the security or integrity of our Solution; and/or (iv) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or safety of WonderED K-12 Academy, our employees, our Users, or others.

• If WonderED K-12 Academy or some or all of its assets were acquired or otherwise transferred to a third party in the course of a company transaction, such as a merger, sale of company assets or shares, reorganization, financing, change of control, bankruptcy or other corporate event, the Personal Information of our users may be transferred to or acquired by a third party, but only if such third party agrees to be subject to the same commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy with respect to user Personal Information. If the transaction involves the transfer of Student Data to a third party, we will provide you with notice and an opportunity to opt-out of the transfer of Student Data by terminating your account before the transfer occurs.

In addition to the actions described above, WonderED K-12 Academy may facilitate the sharing of Student Data with third parties through the Solution, though only when instructed and authorized to do so on behalf of the School or parent. We will use Personal Information about Students to provide the WonderED K-12 Academy Solution and permit data sharing among Users authorized to view and access the Student Data. The teachers will be able to collect, review, and edit information about all of their assigned students. A school principal, school or district/board administrator, or other individual authorized by the School to view and access student accounts, may be able to view and access all activity and content associated with the student accounts associated with the School. Each student and his or her Mentor will only have access to view or submit Personal Information relative to that particular student. Neither students nor their parents will be able to view or otherwise access the Personal Information of other students, unless it is provided to that student account by the School (for example, a class photo and class roster containing the names and photos of other students may be added by a teacher to a student account). Except for the circumstances noted above, WonderED K-12 Academy shares Student Data only for purposes of providing the educational Solution to and at the direction of Schools and parents.

If you have any questions about how WonderED K-12 Academy uses or shares Student Data, please contact us at or discuss this with your student’s School.

7. Control, Access, and Deletion of Personal Information

You may access, update or correct your Personal Information at any time by logging into your account. If you are a School, you may access, update and correct the Personal Information contained in any account under your control by logging into your WonderED K-12 Academy account, and/or by logging into your School Student Information Management System (“SIS”). Parents may request to update a student’s Personal Information, but these requests may require the School’s authorization to update or delete information contained in active School accounts.


We retain your Personal Information, including WonderED K-12 Academy content, for as long as the account is covered by an active subscription or license, or until we receive a request to delete such information.


When a WonderED K-12 Academy User account is no longer in active use the account will be archived in “read-only” mode. Archived accounts are maintained to provide indefinite access to the student’s work. If the account is no longer covered by a School license, WonderED K-12 Academy will delete archived accounts, including the Personal Information and Student Data associated with such accounts, after a period of dormancy, although we may retain and use certain information if necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements, and all information stored in our backup data repository will be deleted pursuant to our standard deletion policy. We may maintain Aggregated Data in a form that does not reasonably identify a particular individual, for our internal use or analytic purposes.

The WonderED K-12 Academy Solution may contain bugs and other errors that could adversely affect the use or performance of the WonderED K-12 Academy Solution. Issues or errors of this nature may impact our ability to comply with this privacy policy.


9. Our Privacy Policy Will Change Over Time

Because we continue to develop the WonderED K-12 Academy Solution and take advantage of technologies to improve the Solutions we provide, our policies will change over time. We will note the effective date of the policy at the bottom of this page, and you should review this page periodically for any changes. If we make any material changes in the way we use Personal Information, we will attempt to notify registered users by sending an email to the user’s registered email address and posting a notice on our website homepage and login page.
