Terms of Use

Welcome to Knowledgehook. Please continue reading to learn about the rules and restrictions that govern your use of Knowledgehook’s website(s) and all other products, services and applications made available by Knowledgehook from time to time (such as, Knowledgehook’s iOS and Android mobile applications, email and the Knowledgehook services available on SMS) (collectively, the “Services”). This Agreement includes the terms in this document, as well as Knowledgehook’s Privacy Policy, and Copyright Dispute Policy.

WHAT THIS IS SAYING

Before using Knowledgehook, you need to be at least 18 years old, and agree to these terms. If you’re under 18, a parent, guardian, or teacher needs to agree to these terms for you. By signing up with Knowledgehook, you agree to these terms.

Using the Service

You represent and warrant to Knowledgehook that: (i) you are at least 18 years old (or, if you are not at least 18 years old, you have your parent, guardian, or teacher’s permission to use the Services, and that your parent, guardian, or teacher has read and agreed to this Agreement on your behalf); (ii) all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful; (iii) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; (iv) if you’re agreeing to this Agreement on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to this Agreement on that organization or entity’s behalf and bind them to this Agreement (in which case, the references to “you” and “your” in these Terms, except for in this sentence, refer to that organization or entity). You also certify that you are legally permitted to use and access the Services and take full responsibility for the selection and use of and access to the Services. This Agreement is void where prohibited by law, and the right to access the Services is revoked in such jurisdictions.

WHAT THIS IS SAYING

By signing up for Knowledgehook, you agree to post truthful and up-to-date information about yourself or your organization. You must be 18-years-old to agree to the Terms, or have a parent, guardian, or teacher agree to them for you.

Will these Terms Ever Change

We are constantly trying to improve our Services, so this Agreement may need to change along with the Services. We reserve the right to modify this Agreement at any time, but we will do our best to bring this to your attention by posting a notice on the Services, sending you a notice via email, and/or by some other means. If you don’t agree with the new terms, you may reject them but unfortunately you will no longer be able to use the Services. Your use of the Services in any way following such notification constitutes your acceptance of the terms and conditions as modified. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services, at any time. We’ll do our best to provide you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical.

WHAT THIS IS SAYING

We want to continually improve the Knowledgehook experience for you, so our terms may change from time to time. We will do everything we reasonably can to update you about these changes ahead of time. Before continuing to use Knowledgehook, it will be important to re-review and agree to any changes.

Again, any changes in policy will reflect our mission to make math practice more engaging while respecting privacy principles.

Privacy

We take the privacy of our users very seriously. Please read our Privacy Policy for more information on how we handle privacy and your data.

WHAT THIS IS SAYING

Another important document to look at is our Privacy Policy. This outlines what personal information we collect from you and how we use that information to provide the Knowledgehook service.

Knowledgehook is not responsible for your use of the Services in any way that breaks the law. You agree you will abide by all copyright notices, trademark rules, information, and restrictions contained in any Content accessed through the Services, and will not use, copy, reproduce, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, upload, display, license, sell or otherwise exploit for any purposes whatsoever any Content or third party submissions or other proprietary rights not owned by you: (i) without the express prior written consent of the respective owners, and (ii) in any way that violates anyone else’s (including Knowledgehook’s) rights.

You may download or copy certain Content for personal non-commercial use only, provided that you maintain all copyright and other notices contained in such Content.

In the course of using the Services, you and other users may provide information which may be used by Knowledgehook in connection with the Services and which may be visible to certain other users. All materials, information and content that you post or otherwise provide to Knowledgehook (and in connection with the Services) are your “User Submissions.” You retain ownership of the rights you may have in your User Submissions, provided that Knowledgehook hereby is and will be granted a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty free, perpetual, irrevocable, and transferable (only to an successor) right to fully exploit such User Submissions (including all related intellectual property rights) and to allow other users to do so (however, Knowledgehook will only share your personally identifiable information in accordance with Knowledgehook’s current Privacy Policy). Furthermore, Knowledgehook (and any other user who accesses User Submissions) retains the right to reformat, modify, create derivative works of, excerpt, and translate any User Submissions submitted by you. You grant other users of the Services a non-exclusive license to access your User Submissions through the Services, and to exercise rights in and to such User Submissions and to view such User Submissions as permitted through the functionality of the Services and under this Agreement (for example, the recipients of a message sent by you will be able to save, copy, edit and store that message). All information publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from which such content originated and that Knowledgehook will not be liable for any errors or omissions in any content.

Additionally, Knowledgehook cannot guarantee the authenticity of any data which users may provide about themselves. You acknowledge that all Content accessed by you using the Services is at your own risk and you will be solely responsible for any damage or loss to any party resulting therefrom.

Knowledgehook reserves the right (but does not have the obligation) to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason (including, but not limited to, upon receipt of claims or allegations from third parties or authorities relating to such Content or if Knowledgehook is concerned that you may have breached the immediately preceding sentence), or for no reason at all. You, not Knowledgehook, remain solely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, email, transmit, or otherwise disseminate using, or in connection with, the Services, and you warrant that you possess all rights necessary to provide such content to Knowledgehook and to grant Knowledgehook the rights to use such information in connection with the Services and as otherwise provided herein.

Under no circumstances will Knowledgehook be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred in connection with use of or exposure to any Content posted, emailed, accessed, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the Services.

WHAT THIS IS SAYING

Be sure to only share content that belongs to you. We may view and/or use content you post on Knowledgehook - but you still own it.

Use by Children

Knowledgehook is very serious about the collection of personally identifiable information from individuals under the age of 18. The Services do not knowingly collect or solicit information from children under the age or 18, except in the following circumstances:

  • We may collect a child’s name (first name and last initial), email address or telephone number, and the child’s parent’s email address in order to provide notice to parents that we may contact their child for the purpose of providing the Services that their teacher has signed up for. Note that if a child user’s Knowledgehook account is inactive for at least twelve months (meaning, that account has not received a message through the Knowledgehook Services in that time), Knowledgehook’s policy is to delete the personally-identifiable information associated with that child’s account.
  • We may collect personal information through the Services from a child under 18 where that student’s school, district, and/or teacher has agreed (via these Terms) for that child to use the Services and disclose personal information to us, for the use and benefit of the learning environment.
  • If you are a school, district, or teacher, you represent and warrant that you are solely responsible for complying with COPPA (The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act). For more information on COPPA, please click here. If you are a teacher, you represent and warrant that you have permission and authorization from your school and/or district to use the Services, and for purposes of COPPA compliance, you represent and warrant that you are entering into these Terms on behalf of your school and/or district.
  • As a school, district, or teacher providing consent on behalf of parents or guardians, in order to create an Organizer account (as described below) you may be required to provide valid school credentials and a valid school email address to verify your identity in order to access and use certain features of the Services.

If we learn we have collected personal information from a student under 18 other than pursuant to the above, or if we learn a student under 18 has provided us personal information beyond what we request from him or her, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a student under 18 may have provided us personal information in violation of this paragraph, please contact us at support@knowledgehook.com.

WHAT THIS IS SAYING

We care about children’s privacy, and are careful about information collected from students under 18 and how it's retained. For users under the age of 18, we require consent from a parent, teacher, or guardian. For users under the age of 18, we require consent from a parent, teacher, or guardian. If you are a teacher, school, or district providing consent on behalf of parents, you are also responsible for complying with COPPA.

Fees and Payments; Responsibility of Usage Charges

Knowledgehook reserves the right to require payment of fees for certain Services. If you want access to those Services, you will pay all applicable fees for those Services, as will be described on the Services.

Note that, by using the Services, you may receive e-mail or text messages on your phone or mobile device, which may cause you to incur usage charges or other fees or costs in accordance with your wireless or data service plan. Any and all such charges, fees, or costs are your sole responsibility. You should consult with your wireless carrier to determine what rates, charges, fees, or costs may apply to your use of the Services.

WHAT THIS IS SAYING

The basic Service of Knowledgehook is free but Knowledgehook charges for some of its other services. Knowledgehook reserves the right to change its prices but if the fee structure changes, we will notify you.

Additional Terms

This Agreement applies to all users of our Services, but there are special terms for you depending on what type of user you are. If you are, for example, a teacher, coach or parent who organizes a “class” or “group” of members, then you are an Organizer. If you are, for example, a student, teammate or parent who is invited to be a member of a class or group by an Organizer, you are a Subscriber. In certain cases, Subscribers may be allowed to invite new members to a “group” to become Subscribers. If you are agreeing to this Agreement on behalf of an organization, such as a school or school district, club, or team, you are an Organization. You may not sign up for or use the Knowledgehook Services as someone you are not; Knowledgehook may disable or terminate your account if you do so. Please read on below to find out what additional terms apply to you.

If you are a Subscriber (such as a student, parent, or other individual invited to join a group by an Organizer):

  • You must get your parent or guardian to read and agree to this Agreement before using the Services if you are under 18.
  • You will only join classes and/or groups that you have been invited to, or based on your school, class or group affiliation, to which you are a part of.

If you are an Organization (such as a school or school district):

  • You will only permit staff members (for example, your teachers) who are current employees of your organization to use the Services and to create their own class or group codes. Upon termination of a staff member’s employment with the Organization, you will require such individual to return and cease using all class or group codes he or she has in his or her possession. If at any time you learn a user of the Services claims to be affiliated with your organization who is not, in fact, affiliated with your Organization, you will notify Knowledgehook immediately by emailing support@knowledgehook.com.

If you are accessing the Services as an Organizer (such as a teacher, administrator, or parent creating a group and inviting users to join as Subscribers):

  • The Services may allow you to invite users to join your group(s) and/or to add users to your group(s). IF YOU INVITE OTHER USERS TO JOIN YOUR GROUP, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT TO US THAT YOU HAVE OBTAINED CONSENT AS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW FROM EACH PERSON THAT YOU INVITE AND/OR ADD TO RECEIVE SUCH INVITATION AND TO RECEIVE MESSAGES FROM KNOWLEDGEHOOK, FROM YOU, AND FROM ANYONE ELSE IN THE GROUP.
  • Organizers can invite members by distributing “class codes” or “group codes” and communicate with Subscribers, (in some cases, there may be more than one Organizer per group).
  • You may only share class or group codes with Subscribers whom you wish to subscribe to your group. If you plan to broadly or publicly publish these codes, you must manage the accuracy of your subscriber lists carefully.
  • Organizers must maintain and monitor Subscriber lists in order to help ensure accurate representation of the Subscribers in your group.

WHAT THIS IS SAYING

There are different ways to use Knowledgehook depending on if you’re a teacher (Organizer), a student/parent (Participant) or an administrator (School). This means that our terms may also be different depending on your role.

Registration and Security

As a condition to using Services, you may be required to register with Knowledgehook by selecting a password and providing your name and a valid email address. You will provide Knowledgehook with accurate, complete, and updated registration information. You may not (i) select or use the name or email of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; or (ii) use a name subject to any rights of any person other than you without appropriate authorization. Knowledgehook reserves the right to refuse registration of or cancel a Knowledgehook account in its sole discretion. You will be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password. You may not transfer your account to anyone without express prior written consent of Knowledgehook. Violation of any of the foregoing may result in immediate termination of your account, revocation of your ability to use the Services, and may subject you to state and federal penalties and other legal consequences. Knowledgehook reserves the right, but will have no obligation, to investigate your use of the Services in order to determine whether a violation of the Agreement has occurred or to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.

WHAT THIS IS SAYING

The security of your account is very important to us. Please keep your password safe, use your real name and create your own account before using Knowledgehook.

Consent to Receive Periodic Messages from Knowledgehook

As part of the Services, Knowledgehook may send communications (such as SMS, emails, and push notifications) to Subscribers of a class group. BY SIGNING UP FOR THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO RECEIVE COMMUNICATIONS FROM KNOWLEDGEHOOK, AND YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT EACH USER YOU INVITE AND/OR ADD TO A GROUP HAS CONSENTED TO RECEIVE COMMUNICATIONS FROM KNOWLEDGEHOOK AS WELL AS FROM YOU AND ANYONE ELSE IN THE GROUP. You agree to indemnify and hold Knowledgehook harmless for and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to your breach of the foregoing. However, the Services will give you the option or opting out of any further notifications and unsubscribing from emails, text messages, and notifications

WHAT THIS IS SAYING

We’re letting you know that you may receive messages from us or even from other Knowledgehook users periodically, now or in the future. It’s also important that you get consent from any subscribers before inviting them to join your class. We will make it quick and easy to unsubscribe from any and all communications.
