Privacy is important. We respect yours.
This policy sets out our privacy practices and explains how we handle the information we collect when you visit and use our sites, services, mobile applications, products, and content provided by edoocoo, in existence now or in the future. Please read it carefully.
What we may collect
We collect information about what pages you access or visit, information about your mobile device (such as device or browser type), information volunteered by you (such as through registration), the URLs of websites that referred you to us, and e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via email. When you log into edoocoo Services or load a web page from edoocoo Services, we collect and store your Internet Protocol address. We may use this information to fight spam, malware, and identity theft; to personalise edoocoo Services for you; or to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use edoocoo Services.
Email communications with us
We may occasionally need to email you some administrative info, tell you something important about your account or changes to our services, or update you on new policies. These administrative communications are considered a basic part of edoocoo Services, and you may not be able to opt out from receiving them. You can always opt out of non-administrative emails. We will never email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, send it to us so we can take action against the evildoer.
Disclosure of your information
The information we collect is used to provide and improve edoocoo Services and content and prevent abuse. We don not sell personal information about our users to any third party.
While edoocoo endeavours to provide the highest level of protection for your information, we may share your personal information with third parties in limited circumstances, including:
(1) with your consent; or
(2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a judicial or administrative order.
Public user content
edoocoo is meant for publishing and sharing content. By default, whatever you share through edoocoo Services is public. A user is also given the option to create private circles within the network, and invite or accept requests for other users to join the private circle and contribute. Anything published to a private circle will only be viewable to members of that circle, and not publicly to the general edoocoo user base. Content published and shared through edoocoo Services is publicly accessible, which means that everyone, including search engines, will be able to see it. This content may also be copied and shared by others throughout the Internet, including through features native to edoocoo Services, such as commenting and embedding. You are free to remove published content from your account, or even disable your account entirely. However, because of the fundamentally open nature of the Internet, the strong possibility that others will comment on or embed your content, and technological limitations inherent to edoocoo Services, copies of your content may exist elsewhere indefinitely, including in our systems.
edoocoo uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Azure, to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run Edoocoo. Although Edoocoo owns its code, data- bases, and all rights to the edoocoo application, you retain all rights to your content. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. This means that after you delete in- formation from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can't guarantee the absolute security of this data. You use the service at your own risk, and you are responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account (such as keeping your password secret).
edoocoo Services are intended for the educational professional community and are not directed to children under 18. We don't knowingly collect personal information from children under 18. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information, please contact us here. If we learn that a child under 18 has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove such information and terminate the child's account.
Please no spam. It just annoys everyone.
We all receive enough of this during our daily lives. You can link to your own website, but please be clear that it is a link. We want to keep edoocoo as a community focused around content, not idiotic misleading links. Don’t use deceptive tags or links or otherwise mislead others about what you’ve posted.
Don’t use deception to generate revenue or traffic. Don’t write posts aimed primarily at unsolicited or affiliate marketing.
Don't use edoocoo to engage in phishing.
Mass Registration and Automation
Don’t register accounts or post content automatically, systematically, or programmatically. If we see this we will delete the accounts.
Don’t embed any malicious code or software in your posts or anything that you upload to or transmit via the Website. This includes, but is not limited to: viruses , Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programs or similar computer code which are designed to adversely affect the way anyone's computer software or hardware works.
Copyright and Trade Mark Infringement
Respect the copyrights and trade marks of others. Unless you’re authorised to use someone else’s copyrighted or trade marked work (either expressly or by legal exceptions and limitations like fair use), don’t do it.
Don’t impersonate someone else or misrepresent your identity to deceive people. Parody is fine, but make it clear that that’s what you’re doing. You may not use our Website in any way that is fraudulent, or has any fraudulent purpose or effect.
No porn. You may want to discuss the use of porn in an educational context, but please don't use any images. Just pretend your mum might be reading your contributions...
Promotion and Glorification of Self-Harm
Don’t promote or glorify self-harm, such as cutting, eating disorders like anorexia or bulimia, and suicide. But these issues can be discussed freely.
As a general point, you shouldn't use our Website in any way that breaches any applicable local, national or international law or regulation or promotes any illegal activity. You should also make sure that you do not exchange any information on the Website which could be in breach of a legal duty you owe to someone else, e.g. a contractual duty or a duty to keep something confidential.
If You Break the Rules
If we get reports of a violation of these Network Rules, we may send you an email and ask you to explain what you’re up to and why. If we decide, in our discretion, that you have breached these Network Rules, we reserve the right to suspend or block your account and/or remove or disable access to your content. edoocoo is a platform for discussion and collaboration, but there need to be boundaries. We reserve the right to suspend and remove accounts or remove content, without notice, for any reason, particularly to protect our services, infrastructure, users, or community. We may take legal proceedings against you for the reimbursement of all of costs which arise as a result of your breach.
We exclude our liability for all action we may take in response to breaches of these Network Rules. The actions described above are not limited, and we may take any other action we reasonably deem appropriate.
We also reserve the right to change these Network Rules using the procedures in our Terms of Service.
If you have questions or feedback, let us know. Like everything on edoocoo, it is open to discussion.
