Visitors to Eduscale’s Clients’ Websites. Our Clients may use customized and proprietary Eduscale code, software and/or services (“Service(s)”) to obtain information regarding the activities that users engage in while visiting their web pages (“Client User Data”). When a user visits a website that uses Eduscale’s Service, Eduscale code contained on the website contacts Eduscale’s servers and enables Eduscale to collect Client User Data. Some Clients may also use their own code to obtain Client User Data and then send such information to Eduscale’s servers. Client User Data may include Personally Identifiable Information, including, but not limited to, the types of information listed for Eduscale Client Information above.

Client User Data is stored on Eduscale’s web servers and databases (including those hosted on third party servers on behalf of Eduscale) for use in performing analysis and producing reports for the applicable Eduscale Client. In addition, Eduscale itself uses the Eduscale Service in order to obtain insights into visitors’ activities on its own websites, which include, as of the Effective Date, https://www.eduscale.pro.

Eduscale’s collection and analysis of Client User Data helps our Clients to evaluate and understand how their users are interacting with their websites, and potentially, to modify their websites in order to make them more valuable or useful for their users. Eduscale’s Clients determine the types of Client User Data that are sent to Eduscale’s servers for analysis. This data may include or be linked to Personally Identifiable Information depending on how the Client uses Eduscale’s Services on its website(s). Eduscale’s Clients are contractually prohibited from sending personally sensitive Client User Data (e.g. personal health information, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs) to Eduscale and Eduscale does not knowingly receive such data.

In addition, Eduscale may collect certain information about a Client’s visitor’s computer that may be provided by the visitor’s browser. This includes browser information, operating system information, mobile device information, IP address, time of visit, and the referring site, application, or service, time on page, click history. Such information may be collected and shared with the Eduscale Client even though not specifically requested by the Client.
