- Account Data. When you log-in to or create an account with the Services, we collect the information you provide in the applicable form. This information includes personally identifiable information such as your name, email, phone number and password. When we refer to “personally identifiable information” in this Policy, we mean information that we can directly associate with a specific person or entity without additional information. To the extent you decline to share certain personally identifiable information with us, we may not be able to provide some or all of the features and functionalities found on the Services.
- Information Collected Automatically. When you use the Services, we automatically gather certain non-personally identifiable information from you. This includes usage information, such as information on the beginning and ending timestamps of each communication session, how far Products were “driven” during each session, which remote users were involved in each session and the timestamps of when Products are turned on/off and docked/undocked. This also may include server log data such as the IP address, browser type, or device ID of your computer or mobile device, or (in the case of the Site) the webpage you were visiting before you came to the Site. As described below, we collect this information through a number of means, including server logs, cookies and other online tracking mechanisms. We may use this information to improve quality, features and performance. We may provide this information back to users in the form of reports and statistics. We may associate such non-personally identifiable information with the personally identifiable information that you provide in connection with the Services. But if we do so, we will treat the combined information as personally identifiable information.
- Online Tracking and Cookies. The Services may use web beacons, cookies and other online tracking mechanisms to collect information. “Beacons” (also often referred to as “pixels”) are tiny graphics on a web page designed to track when a page is viewed. Beacons also can be inserted into emails in order to track certain information, including whether an email has been opened. “Cookies” are small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters that are downloaded by your web browser or mobile device when you visit a website. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies when you access and use the Services. Cookies may be used, for example, to remember your user account information and your preferences, to customize the interface of the Services for you and to assist us in measuring and analyzing Services traffic. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Services. Persistent cookies can be removed. Please review your browser’s documentation to learn the best way to modify your cookie settings. You can take steps to limit tracking by erasing cookies from your computer’s hard drive and by setting your browser to block all cookies or warn you before a cookie is stored. We partner with certain third parties to collect non-personally identifiable information.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects personal information in students’ “educational records” from unauthorized disclosure unless an exception applies.
FERPA may require educational institutions and school districts (“Education Providers”) to obtain parental consent before disclosing Student Data outside of the educational institution. Student Data is information maintained by us or any third party on our behalf relating to an individual person enrolled at an Education Provider (“Student”), including any education records as defined under FERPA, that are disclosed by Education Providers to Company, except that Student Data does not include a record that has had personal data removed such that the Student’s identity is not uniquely identifiable from the record and there is no reasonable basis to believe that the remaining information can be used to identify an individual.
FERPA does not require audits or other certifications and therefore, academic institution that is subject to FERPA must assess itself. However, we believe we are in alignment with the requirements of FERPA.
- If you are an Education Provider who will be using the Services with Students in connection with your educational institution, district or class located or based in the United States, Student Data provided or generated through your or your Students’ use of the Services may be subject to FERPA. Theretofore, you represent and warrant the following:
- You are authorized to act on behalf of, or have permission from, your educational institution or school district to enter into this Agreement and to use the Services with your Students;
- You will remove any Student material from any account you have access to in connection with the Services and close any account for Services used by you solely as an Education Provider or contact the Company for assistance if you unable to do so on your own once you no longer are authorized to act on behalf of your educational institution or school district;
- You, your educational institution, or your district will obtain any consents required under applicable law to be provided by a Student or the Student’s parent or legal guardian before you enroll, sign up or permit any Student to use the Services;
- You will not provide to the Company Student Data of any Student under thirteen (13) years of age. Notwithstanding the foregoing, when using the OhmniLabs telepresence robots, you may provide Student Data of a Student under thirteen (13) years of age, if you first obtain a signed and dated consent form that is voluntarily provided the parent or legal guardian of the Student.
- The Company agrees to the following:
- The Company will be considered a “school official” as that term is defined in FERPA and its implementing regulations to the extent that Education Providers subject to FERPA provide the Company with Student Data;
- The Company will comply with your requests to review, modify, de-identity or delete any Student Data that the Company maintains about your Student within a reasonable time frame;
- The Company will not maintain, use or disclose Student Data except as set forth herein and in the Policy as authorized by you or permitted or required by applicable law or a judicial order.

- Right to be Erased – We delete your personal data when it is no longer needed for the purposes for which you provided it, or for the duration required for compliance with applicable law, whichever is longer.

International Transfer of Data. The Account and Marketing Data may be transferred to, and stored in, a country operating outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Under the GDPR, the transfer of personal data to a country outside of the EEA may take place where the European Commission has decided that the country ensures an adequate level of protection. In the absence of an adequacy decision, we may transfer personal data provided appropriate safeguards are in place.
Some of the Account and Marketing Data we collect is processed in the United States (where our registered office is located). This country is not subject to an adequacy decision by the European Commission and instead, in transferring your personal data to this country, we take other appropriate safeguards as prescribed by the GDPR. We adhere to the guidelines under the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.
Data Retention Policy. Account and Marketing Data that we collect and process will not be kept longer than necessary for the purposes for which it is collected, or for the duration required for compliance with applicable law, whichever is longer.
