Updating the terms of service is rigorous work. Here at Clever, we analyzing state laws passed in 2016, aligned ourselves with industry trends (such as the CETPA contract), and conducted security/privacy reviews on our newest features.
In the end, we settled on a few changes. We don’t have to notify folks about these changes legally, but we think it’s important for everyone to be informed about their software policies and we strive for transparency. So we want to outline exactly what changed:
- Clever will soon be launching our iOS app! We want to alert users of the data collected while using it (such as device type and time of day) what protections they can expect from us.
- Clever uses cameras to log students in via Badges. With camera usage, we want to ensure to our stakeholders that we don’t collect or store any photo images. You can find more about how we built that system with safety and security in mind here.
