I. Using the AccelaStudy Cloud

Who can use the AccelaStudy Cloud

The Service is for users of all ages. By using the Service, you represent and warrant that (a) all information you provide creating your AccelaStudy Cloud account is truthful and accurate, (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information, and (c) your use of the Service does not violate any applicable law or regulation.

We expect that the use of the Service by children will only be done with the guidance, supervision, and consent of their parents, guardians, and/or school officials. Further, we rely on parents and guardians to ensure minors only use the Service if they can understand their rights and responsibilities as stated in these Terms and our Privacy Policy.

If you are a school, district, or teacher in the United States and want your students who are under the age of 13 to create AccelaStudy Cloud accounts, you agree that you are responsible for complying with the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and, to the extent applicable, The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”). This means you must notify those students’ parents/guardians of the personally identifiable information Renkara will collect and obtain parental/guardian consent before your students establish accounts or use the Service. When obtaining such consent, you must provide parents/guardians with a copy of our Privacy Policy. You must keep all consents on file and provide them to us if we request them. For more information on complying with COPPA, see the Federal Trade Commission’s website at http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/coppafaqs.shtm. If you are located outside of the United States, we will rely upon you to obtain any required consent or approval from the parent or guardian of any student covered by similar laws and, as a condition to your and your students’ use of the Service, you agree that you will be responsible for complying with such laws.
