When we use the word “Service(s)” in this Privacy Policy, we mean (i) the public ClassFlow Service available for free at www.classflow.com or other such URL as determined by the User’s locale (e.g., classflow.it/classflow.nl/classflow.de/classflow.co.uk); (ii) the ClassFlow for Schools Service which is available via subscription to schools, school districts, or other such institutions, and is accessible only through the setup of a unique ClassFlow Subdomain with a private URL (e.g.,  www.yourschooldistrictname.classflow.com) for use exclusively by the specific school or district; and (iii) all the other related websites, products, services, and applications made available by Promethean (including any ClassFlow-related Apps which might be available via the iTunes Store and Google Play store).

This Privacy Policy, together with the ClassFlow Cookies Policy, ClassFlow Terms of Service, and Acceptable Use Policy referred to in this Privacy Policy, form a legally binding Contract between you and us (collectively referred to herein as the “Contract”).  Please read each of these carefully before you start to use our Service.  By using our Service, you indicate that you accept the ClassFlow Terms of Service, Acceptable Use Policy, Privacy Policy, and this Cookies Policy, and you agree to be bound by and abide by the terms of each of these.  If you do not agree to these terms and policies, please do not use the Service.  Any terms we use here without defining them shall have the definitions given to them in the Terms of Service.  In the event of any inconsistency between the Terms of Service and this Cookies Policy, the Terms of Service shall take precedence.

1. About Cookies

The ClassFlow Service uses cookies.  By registering to use the ClassFlow Service, you consent to Promethean’s use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy.  Cookies are files sent by web servers to a user’s web browser, and stored by the user’s web browser.  The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.  This enables a web server to identify and track web browsers.  There are two main kinds of cookies:  session cookies and persistent cookies.  Session cookies are deleted from your computer when the user closes the browser, whereas persistent cookies remain stored on your computer until deleted or until they reach their expiry date.

2. How and Why We Use Cookies

Promethean uses cookies to help us understand how visitors interact with our Service.
