In most cases, we retain such information to provide the Services to you and our other users and to provide a useful user experience. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information. In addition to the foregoing, we collect the following types of information from our users.

Certain information that is collected automatically such as device ID and phone number will be treated as Personal Information.
Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Company only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of the Services or services so that we can make the Services appealing to as many users as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our users, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use our partners' services and the Services to help provide you with an optimal online experience.
Mobile Application: When users download and use our mobile application, we automatically collect IP address, device ID, device type, user agent browser, what OS they are running, whether or not you signed up on the web, and phone number. If a user is under 13 and using our Student Application we do not collect the device ID or IP address, we will only collect the device type and OS they are running.
We collect geo-location information from teachers when they download and use our mobile application. The purpose for doing so is to provide teachers a generic phone number in their area code so that we are able to provide them with one in their area. If the teachers no longer wish to have their location information collected or used they may turn these features off within the settings of their phone or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not ask you for, access or automatically track any location-based information from students' or parents' mobile devices at any time.

We send push notifications to users who are students when their teacher has posted something new within the class to which they belong. If you no longer with to receive such communications, you may turn them off at the device level.
