SWYE360 requires schools, districts, or teachers (on behalf of the parents or legal guardians of students under the age of 13) to provide consent for the online collection of personal information of the student under the age of 13 through SWYE360. In order to register to use SWYE360, students must use an access code provided to them by their teacher or autogenerated by SWYE360.
SWYE360 collects limited personal information from minor students only where that student’s school, district, or teacher has contracted with SWYE360 to collect personal information for the use and benefit of the learning environment. This information is not shared outside of the school or with any third parties except those needed for the provision of the service as outlined in this policy. Students of any age cannot share their profiles publicly outside of their classroom or school.
Teachers can give students grades, attendance marks, and provide comments to students. Students can submit assignments, make comments, and take online tests, assessments, and quizzes, Teachers or students can record audio or video and attach these recordings to content or other items in our system. None of this information is shared with any third parties without the Teachers, district, or school's consent.

When you provide or receive online tutoring and or job-embedded coaching through our Services, you’ll need to provide billing and payment information. We’ve carefully chosen Service Providers who use Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant practices to process payments (“Payment Processors”).

You have the option to save a credit or debit card record with our Payment Processor to re-use those details for future purchases on SWYE360 without having to re-enter them at checkout. You can edit or remove this information at any time by navigating to the checkout page or by contacting us for assistance.
