Your Privacy is Important.
- We believe that schools, acting with parent permission, should determine whether any student data is collected and maintain control over that data.
- Schools can use BrainPOP® without sharing any personal student data. Or, schools can choose to enable My BrainPOP™ to keep track of individual student learning.
- The school account administrator can purge student data at any time.
- We will never share identifiable data without your permission. We will never sell student data to a third party.
- BrainPOP uses industry standard SSL to ensure that student data is encrypted and transmitted securely from end to end.
- Teachers can monitor student accounts and student work.
- Students cannot privately communicate with each other.
- Parents can access their child's account at anytime.
- If a school chooses to use My BrainPOP, teachers will gain valuable data on student performance and students will receive feedback on how to improve.
- We also use anonymous and de-identified data to improve learning opportunities and continually make BrainPOP more effective.
- BrainPOP makes every effort to ensure consistency with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) policies. We also comply with Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
- We have signed the K-12 School Service Provider Pledge to Safeguard Student Privacy.

You must be 18 or older to order a subscription to any of the BrainPOP® websites or apps. We will not sell or market directly to minors and always seek parental or legal guardian's authorization whenever we identify that a minor attempts to purchase a BrainPOP product or service.
A note to schools and districts: Wherever we collect student identifiable information, we do so in support of the educational purposes for which BrainPOP is designed. Such information is only collected in conjunction with the use of My BrainPOP™ (our individual accounts system), an optional feature that only schools and districts can opt into. Schools and districts can choose whether to allow their teachers and students the use of this feature.
For purposes of this Policy, we introduce the definitions of how we characterize user's information:
"Personally Identifiable Information" or "PII" is information that can identify a user of this website, including e-mail, name and address.
"Anonymous Information" is information that does not enable identification of an individual user.
"De-Identified Information" is information from which all personally identifiable components have been removed. Unlike Anonymous Information, De-Identified information is initially collected as Personally Identifiable Information, after which we remove any identifying component to make the information anonymous.
