Classlist is a private community and service that enables members to provide and share information (including personal contact information), and to communicate with and arrange events for members of their own school community. Classlist is dedicated to supporting private, trust-based communities of school parents.
We take all reasonable efforts to ensure that only the information you wish to share is made available to other Classlist users.
We do not:
a.Your information: We receive and may store any information you enter on our Website or otherwise provide to us. This includes information that can identify you ("Personal Information"), including your first and last name, telephone number, postal and e-mail addresses, children’s names, school and classes, user name and password. We also request information about your family and preferences, including demographic data. You can choose not to provide such information to us, but in general some information about you is required in order for you to enjoy the benefits of being a registered member. Only registered members of your own school community or yeargroup will have access to your Personal Information, as well as designated representative members of the PTA, Friends, School or Association who are acting as admins of the organisation’s Classlist community. Only registered members are able to post events, participate in discussion forums, transmit Classlist content to themselves and others, access members-only newsletters, and enter surveys, or contests. In addition, some information is also required in order for you to ask us a question or initiate other transactions on our Website. You may also wish to provide photos, messages, videos, ads, listings or other content ("User Content") through our Website or to other members. Classlist will retain any such User Content in order for members to review what they have previously shared and for others to comment or respond to such User Content. Sharing any User Content is at the member’s own risk. b. Information About others: You will have the opportunity to provide other people’s contact information to our Website, for example, to invite them to join Classlist , or to share family or carer contact information. You should obtain the consent of these individuals prior to providing Classlist with their information. Classlist will only use such information to send the invitation email and any reminders to the potential member. Classlist may store this information in order to send the invitation email, to register the new member if the invitation is accepted and to track and administer Classlist’s referral programs.
Classlist may share your information with the following entities:
• Third-party vendors. These are entities that provide services or functions on our behalf, including business analytics, customer service, marketing, distribution of surveys or contests, and fraud prevention. We may also authorize third-party vendors to collect information on our behalf, including as necessary to operate features of our Website or to facilitate the delivery of online advertising tailored to your interests. Third-party vendors have access to and may collect information only as needed to perform their functions and are not permitted to share or use the information for any other purpose.
• Social Media Services. You can choose to access certain third party social media websites and services through our Website (such as Facebook). When you do so, you are choosing to share information with those websites, and the information you share will be governed by their privacy policies. You may also be able to modify your privacy settings with these third party social media websites.
• In response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases we reserve the right to raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us. • When we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities; to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of Classlist, our customers, or others; and in connection with our Terms of Service and other agreements. • In connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy. • In aggregate or anonymously, with third parties, including advertisers and investors. This may include telling our advertisers the number of visitors our Website receives or the most popular international schools or local medical facilities. This information does not contain any Personal Information and is used to develop content and services we hope you will find of interest.
• Schools, PTAs, Class Reps and any organisation where Classlist is used by the parent community or school community. When you apply to join Classlist the personal details you supply will be used to verify that you are a true member of the community that you have applied to join. This will include processing the information for consulting against school database systems.
Other than as set out above, you will be notified when Personal Information about you will be shared with third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to have us share such information.
a. Data retention and account termination You can close your Classlist account at any time by unsubscribing through your profile on our Website. We will send you an e-mail to confirm your request. Classlist will remove your name and Personal Information from our Website, but any User Content attributable to you will be assigned an "anonymous" or "former member" status. Please note that after you close an account, you will not be able to sign in or access any of your Personal Information. However, you can open a new account at any time. Please also note that we may retain certain information associated with your account in our archives, including for analytical purposes as well as for recordkeeping integrity. In addition, you acknowledge that any User Content that you previously provided will remain viewable in cached and archived pages on our Website indefinitely. b. Configuring the collection and use of your information When you create a profile on Classlist, certain information in your profile will be viewable and identifiable within Classlist via your screen name. You will have the ability to view your profile as members of Classlist will see it. Additionally, if you choose to participate in our member-to-member communications programs, other Classlist members may contact you by using Classlist as an intermediary; however, Classlist will not directly share your email address with any other members nor display it any public manner. All Classlist members have the option to turn off the member-to-member communication features at any time. Classlist will bear no responsibility whatsoever for any member-to-member communications. • As discussed above, you can choose not to provide us with certain information, although it may be needed to take advantage of certain features offered on Classlist. • You also can add or update information and close your account as described above through your profile on the Website. You may delete or edit User Content up until the time that another member has commented on such User Content. Once another member has responded to your User Content, it may not be deleted or changed. • As a registered Classlist member, you can modify your e-mail subscription choices at any time on the Profile page. When you are registered as a Classlist member, you will be given the opportunity to unsubscribe from promotional messages in any such e-mail we send. Please note that we reserve the right to send you other communications, including service announcements, administrative messages, and surveys relating to your Classlist account, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. • Email Communications. Classlist.com wants to make it easy for you to take advantage of relevant opportunities on our Website. One way we do this is by asking you if you would like to opt in to receiving e-mail messages that contain information about your apparent interests. For example, if you specify tennis as an interest on Classlist.com, we may send you an email message reminding you about tickets to a major tennis tournament going on sale in your city. We believe these email messages will provide you with useful information about special events and offers available through our Website. Please note that you will have the opportunity to choose not to receive these email messages in any such email we send. • The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Please note that if you refuse to accept cookies from Classlist, you will not be able to access portions of our Website.
At Classlist we are committed to protecting the information we collect. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that the security measures in place will never be defeated or fail or that those measures will always be sufficient or effective.
Classlist is a general audience website and does not offer services directed to children under age 18. We require registered users of the Website to be at least 18 years of age. Should an individual whom we know to be under age 18 send Personal Information to us, we will delete or destroy such information as soon as reasonably possible.
