We may use your email to send you an occasional message to tell you about new features, ask for your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with LeanLearn and our products. If you would prefer not to receive emails from us, you may opt-out by sending us an email.

LeanLearn does not share any information or content you have provided to us with third parties. If we choose to do so in the future, we will announce it in these Privacy Policy and the Changes to our Privacy Policy section will apply.

Your Content on LeanLearn

You own the content and information you provide to LeanLearn. Content you have created on a board on LeanLearn, will never be shared with a third party without your explicit permission. We will not sell, give unregulated access to, or rent your personal information to any third party or use your e-mail address for correspondence you did not sign up for.

If we have to access, preserve and disclose your information and content, it will only be for the following reasons:

  • A third party has a claim against you and your information or content.
  • To respond to any request you make to us involving your information and content.
  • We are required to do so by law.
  • To protect the property or personal safety of our users, employees, the company as a whole, and the public in general.

For content that you have allowed us to use or share by accepting this agreement you grant us a worldwide royalty-free license to use, store, adapt, and translate your content in any existing or future media that we or selected third parties own.

Google Drive

None of the information entered into the boards and spreadsheets that you create is sent to us or stored on our servers. All information, including the name and the picture of the users that appear in the LeanLearn interface, is saved on your Google Drive and subject to the Google Privacy Policy.

Our beta version of LeanLearn transforms the Google Spreadsheet template saved on your local Google Drive into a Kanban board. Since you are modifying directly into your spreadsheet, we currently need access to your whole Google Drive. We are working on a solution where we will only access and modify files that LeanLearn has created on your Google Drive account unless you specify otherwise (See Authorization Scopes). If you have any doubts, please contact us.

Authorization Scopes

By default, LeanLearn will request access to the UserInfo.Email, Drive.File, Drive.Install, and Drive.AppData OAuth scopes. These allow LeanLearn to access only files that were created with LeanLearn and allow LeanLearn to see your Google email address. Over the course of using LeanLearn you may need to grant additional authorization scopes to enable additional features. Any data that is accessed through these scopes is only sent to devices that you use with LeanLearn . LeanLearn does not send or store this information anywhere, except locally on your devices.

Students´ Personal Information

LeanLearn collects limited Personal Information from students (“Students’ Personal Information”), but only where the students’ school, district, and/or teacher has contracted with LeanLearn to collect Students’ Personal Information from students for the use and benefit of the learning environment. Children under 13 years old are not allowed to create an account without a parent or guardian’s permission. We recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet. We require schools, districts, and/or teachers to obtain parental consent from students’ parents before collecting any such Students` Personal Information.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

LeanLearn reserves the right to change the Privacy Policy at any time. We will notify you of significant changes to our Privacy Policy by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your account or by placing a prominent notice on our website. Significant changes will go into effect 30 days following such notification. Non-material changes or clarifications will take effect immediately. You should periodically check the website and the Privacy Policy page for updates.
