CoreFour Inc.’s Usage Policy for Edsby Services

Date of last revision of this policy: September 28, 2021

Welcome to Edsby! Edsby provides a suite of software services (the “Services”) to teachers, students, parents and administrators of a specific Education Organization. The Services are owned and operated by CoreFour Inc. (the “Company”).

This document contains our Usage Policy governing your access to and use of the Edsby Services. We suggest you read these terms carefully before using the Services.

If you do not accept this Usage Policy, you may not use the Services. If you use our Services you agree to this Usage Policy.

Respecting and protecting the privacy of information stored within the Edsby Service is very important to us. Please consult our Services Privacy Policy at www.edsby.com/privacy-policy/ for details on how we do that.

1. Overview

Edsby is a cloud-based software service that modernizes how teachers, students and parents engage with each other. Edsby is often selected through a formal competitive procurement process and rigorous evaluation of many factors including privacy and security of student data. Edsby Services are managed by Education Organizations as one part of a suite of technology solutions that every Education Organization requires.

Education Organizations pay to use Edsby and own and manage the information stored and collected by Edsby on their behalf.

User accounts for a specific Education Organization using Edsby are created by or under the direction/invitation of the administrative staff of that Education Organization. Parents/guardians and students are not allowed to create their own accounts on Edsby; they are only allowed to use authorized accounts set up specifically for them at the direction of the Education Organization they are members of.

You are permitted to access a specific customer’s Edsby Services only if you have been directly invited and authorized to do so by the administrative staff within that Education Organization.

2. Changes To This Usage Policy

The Company may make changes to this Usage Policy from time to time. We suggest you check this Usage Policy periodically for changes.
