Protecting your privacy is fundamental to us. The following summarizes our promises to you.
Strawbees Classroom is a tool for teachers and does not collect any student data. It is fully compliant with FERPA and COPPA.

Strawbees Classroom is constantly improving, and we use aggregated data about how it is being used (for example what buttons you click on or what pages you visit) to inform those decisions.
We currently do not collect any personally identifiable data, and to help us analyze the anonymous data we collect, we use a small number of third-party services (such as Plausible Analytics).

In addition, these services are contractually obligated only to use data about your usage of Strabees Classroom to provide analytics services to us and are prohibited from sharing it or using it for other purposes.
Occasionally, we may run "beta tests" of new features of our platform, for a limited time, and for a limited number of test users - these tests may require the collection of personally identifiable data. These tests will always be agreed upon with users ahead of time, and only those who accept will have their data collected. For these tests, we use the third-party service Hotjar.
