The Provider further acknowledges and agrees that all copies of such Student Data transmitted to the Provider, including any modifications or additions or any portion thereof from any source, are subject to the provisions of this Agreement in the same manner as the original Student Data.

Provider may transfer pupil-generated content to a separate account, according to the procedures set forth below.
2. Parent Access.

Provider shall respond in a timely manner (and no later than 45 days from the date of the request) to the LEA’s request for Student Data in a pupil’s records held by the Provider to view or correct as necessary. In the event that a parent of a pupil or other individual contacts the Provider to review any of the Student Data accessed pursuant to the Services, the Provider shall refer the parent or individual to the LEA, who will follow the necessary and proper procedures regarding the requested information.
3. Separate Account. If pupil generated content is stored or maintained by the Provider as part of the Services described in Exhibit “A”, Provider shall, at the request of the LEA, transfer said pupil generated content to a separate student account upon termination of the Service Agreement; provided, however, such transfer shall only apply to pupil generated content that is severable from the Service.

2. Annual Notification of Rights. If the LEA has a policy of disclosing education records under FERPA (4 CFR § 99.31 (a) (1)), LEA shall include a specification of criteria for determining who constitutes a school official and what constitutes a legitimate educational interest in its Annual notification of rights.
3. Reasonable Precautions. LEA shall take reasonable precautions to secure usernames, passwords, and any other means of gaining access to the services and hosted data.
4. Unauthorized Access Notification. LEA shall notify Provider promptly of any known or suspected unauthorized access. LEA will assist Provider in any efforts by Provider to investigate and respond to any unauthorized access.

Provider also acknowledges and agrees that it shall not make any re-disclosure of any Student Data or any portion thereof, including without limitation, meta data, user content or other non-public information and/or personally identifiable information contained in the Student Data, without the express written consent of the LEA.
3. Employee Obligation. Provider shall require all employees and agents who have access to Student Data to comply with all applicable provisions of this DPA with respect to the data shared under the Service Agreement.
4. No Disclosure. De-identified information may be used by the Provider for the purposes of development, research, and improvement of educational sites, services, or applications, as any other member of the public or party would be able to use de-identified data pursuant to 34 CFR 99.31(b). Provider agrees not to attempt to re-identify de-identified Student Data and not to transfer de-identified Student Data to any party unless (a) that party agrees in writing not to
attempt re-identification, and (b) prior written notice has been given to LEA who has provided prior written consent for such transfer. Provider shall not copy, reproduce or transmit any data obtained under the Service Agreement and/or any portion thereof, except as necessary to fulfill the Service Agreement.
5. Disposition of Data. Upon written request and in accordance with the applicable terms in subsection a or b, below, Provider shall dispose or delete all Student Data obtained under the Service Agreement when it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was obtained. Disposition shall include (1) the shredding of any hard copies of any Student Data; (2) Erasing; or (3) Otherwise modifying the personal information in those records to make it unreadable or indecipherable by human or digital means.

Prior to disposition of the data, Provider shall notify LEA in writing of its option to transfer data to a separate account, pursuant to Article II, section 3, above. In no event shall Provider dispose of data pursuant to this provision unless and until Provider has received affirmative written confirmation from LEA that data will not be transferred to a separate account.
6. Advertising Prohibition. Provider is prohibited from using or selling Student Data to (a) market or advertise to students or families/guardians; (b) inform, influence, or enable marketing, advertising, or other commercial efforts by a Provider; (c) develop a profile of a student, family member/guardian or group, for any commercial purpose other than providing the Service to LEA; or (d) use the Student Data for the development of commercial products or services, other than as necessary to provide the Service to LEA.

e. Provider further acknowledges and agrees to have a written incident response plan that reflects best practices and is consistent with industry standards and federal and state law for responding to a data breach, breach of security, privacy incident or unauthorized acquisition or use of Student Data or any portion thereof, including personally identifiable information and agrees to provide LEA, upon request, with a copy of said written incident response plan.
f. Provider is prohibited from directly contacting parent, legal guardian or eligible pupil unless expressly requested by LEA. If LEA requests Provider’s assistance providing notice of unauthorized access, and such assistance is not unduly burdensome to Provider, Provider shall notify the affected parent, legal guardian or eligible pupil of the unauthorized access, which shall include the information listed in subsections (b) and (c), above. If requested by LEA, Provider shall reimburse LEA for costs incurred to notify parents/families of a breach not originating from LEA's use of the Service.

Subprocessor: For the purposes of this Agreement, the term “Subprocessor” (sometimes referred to as the “Subcontractor”) means a party other than LEA or Provider, who Provider uses for data collection, analytics, storage, or other service to operate and/or improve its software, and who has access to PII.
Targeted Advertising: Targeted advertising means presenting an advertisement to a student where the selection of the advertisement is based on student information, student records or student generated content or inferred over time from the usage of the Provider’s website, online service or mobile application by such student or the retention of such student’s online activities or requests over time.
