We may make changes to the policy from time to time so please be sure to check regularly. If we make a material change to this policy and we have your contact details we will contact you before we make the change.
We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses and browsers, then read about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to us; please do take the time to get to know our practices. As always, if you have any questions, please contact us.
Myschooldance.com is intended for high school students and educators. In the event that a user 12 and under attempts to create an account on the Site, we ask that they provide a parent’s email address. We use this email address to notify the parent of their child’s wish to use the Site and ask that the parent create an account and add a student profile for their child. This profile includes a first name, last name, date of birth, grade, school name and county. The parent manages the student account and receives information on events and tickets through their online contact information. We store this information as long as necessary to provide the service. The parent can review or update their child’s information or request that it is deleted at any time.
If you have any questions, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, secure online application which will assist you in sharing information and forms, to communicate with other people in your school, or to create new content. In order to do so, My School Dance must collect information to identify users, and to allow our users to identify each other. We only collect information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
We collect information in two ways:
For example, many of our services require you to sign up for a My School Dance Account. When you do, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card. We may present your name, email address or image to other users in your school, or otherwise associated with your My School Dance account in order to assist in sharing or recommendations.
You may also choose to provide the following:
If you choose to upload your own Resources to the Resource page, you provide us with that information and it may be available to other users and even the public. This means that it can be read, collected, and used by others without our knowledge, including sending unsolicited communications.
Our Services may allow users to search for other users and view those user’s public profile information (also called your “ID”). To change the information appearing in your public profile or to make this information private, please visit your account settings.
You may provide us with information about others when you use the service. You are responsible for receiving prior authorization from the person or entity that you are providing information of. This could be personal, health or other sensitive information, such as a name, email address, telephone number or credit card.
When users create Dances and Dance Agreements through our Services and arrange for them to be sent to recipients, they’ll provide information such as names and email addresses of the recipients. If users want additional assurances about the identity of the individual signing their agreements or contracts, they may require us to collect some additional information that we use to authenticate recipients before they are able to sign an agreement or contract.
We may collect information about the services that you use and how you use them. An example would be when you visit a website that uses our services or you view and interact with our content. This information includes:
We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). My School Dance may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your My School Dance Account.
When you use our services or view content provided by My School Dance, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include: Details of how you used our service, such as your links accessed and created or search queries; Telephone log information such as your phone number, time and date of calls, duration of calls and types of calls.
Device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, referral URL, cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your My School Dance Account.
When you use a location-enabled My School Dance service, we may collect and process information about your actual location, such as GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.
Certain services include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to My School Dance when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates.
Data relating to the forms or contracts you upload or sign on the Services, such as: Agreement metadata, Agreement or contract subject, authentication method used, and Agreement or contract history.
We may collect and store information, including personal information, locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
We may obtain information about you from other sources such as marketers, partners, affiliates under common ownership or control with My School Dance, researchers, and others. For example, if you register for My School Dance on another website or use a website that facilitates your activity on My School Dance, that website may provide information about you and your transactions to us.
We use the information we collect from all of our services to facilitate the transaction and online services that you are engaged in with My School Dance or a third party such as a school, club or business that you’re associated with. We also use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, improve, develop new services, and protect My School Dance and it’s users. This information is also used to offer you tailored content.
We may use the name you provide for your My School Dance Profile across all of the services we offer that require a My School Dance Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your My School Dance Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible My School Dance Profile information, such as your name and photo.
If you use My School Dance to send documents, we will encrypt and store these documents in an account. We will then make the contents available only to those whom you invite to view or sign these files. We restrict our employees access to this information so that their access is only necessary to provide services.
When you contact My School Dance, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements. If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or requests for walk-throughs, we may collect information, such as name, email address, and phone number, into a file specific to you.
If you register for My School Dance on another web site, use a web site providing a service for My School Dance, or a web site that helps facilitate your activity on My School Dance, that web site may provide personal information about you and your transactions back to My School Dance.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologiesto improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services.
We may combine information from one service, including personal information, into other My School Dance service – for example to make it easier to share things with people you know.
Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.
In order to facilitate interaction among all My School Dance users, our product may allow you limited access to other user’s contact and authentication status information.
By entering into our User Agreement, you agree that, with respect to other user’s information that you obtain through the site or through a My School Dance-related communication or My School Dance-facilitated transaction, My School Dance hereby grants to you a license to use such information only for:
In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to withdraw consent to sign electronically. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this section, can you disclose personal information about another user to any third party without our consent and the consent of that user. You agree that other users may use your personal information to communicate with you in accordance with this section.
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it, unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We will retain in our files some personal information, past documents, forms and transactions to prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our User Agreement, and comply with legal requirements as is permitted by law. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personal information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests. However, such personal information will be deactivated from user viewing and will only be available to select My School Dance personnel.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
Should you wish to opt-out of our data collection and have your personal identifiable information removed, then email us at email@example.com.
We do not share, sell, or rent any of your personal information with companies, organizations, and individuals outside of My School Dance unless one of the following circumstances apply:
We will share personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of My School Dance when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information with account administrators.
If your My School Dance Account is managed for you by an organization administrator then your organization’s administrator and resellers who provide user support to your organization will have access to your My School Dance information (including your email and other data). Your account administrator may be able to:
We may use third parties, that we refer to as Internal Service Providers, to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of the business, product, and service operations that we provide to you (e.g., search technology, authentication systems, bill collection, fraud detection, and a customer support vendor to provide live chat services). We may provide some of your personal information directly to these internal service providers. These internal service providers are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions that prohibit their use of the information we provide them for any other purpose except to facilitate the specific outsourced My School Dance related operation, unless you have explicitly agreed or given your prior permission to them for additional uses.
We will share personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside of My School Dance if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
We may share your information with other companies under common ownership or control with My School Dance. We may share aggregated, nonpersonally identifiable information publicly and with our partners, such as publishers, advertisers, or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services. This could also include government bodies, industry groups, insurers, and educational/training facilities.
Since My School Dance does not control the privacy policies of third parties, or other individual’s actions, you are subject to the privacy policies of that third party or those individuals. We encourage you to be sure the recipients are authenticated to your satisfaction before you send them any documents.
We may use a third-party service provider to conduct these surveys to better provide our services to you; that company is prohibited from using our user’s personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used and control who you share information with.
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, you may not be able to login to My School Dance or utilize other services.
We work hard to protect My School Dance and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
You are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password, including fees charged to your account and all actions taken with your account. Therefore, we do not recommend that you disclose your My School Dance password to any third parties. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.
California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those parties. As discussed above, we do not currently share personal information with third parties for their own marketing purposes.
In order to comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, My School Dance will meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA, as instituted by the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), unless in a particular situation doing so would not be feasible or otherwise imposes an undue burden.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are part of a series of web accessibility guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the main international standards organization for the Internet. They are a set of guidelines that specify how to make content accessible, primarily for people with disabilities—but also for all user agents, including highly limited devices, such as mobile phones.
For the My School Dance backend application (https://app.myschooldance.com), My School Dance is committed to compliance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Sections 504 and 508, as applicable, so that students, parents and members of the public with disabilities are able to independently acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same benefits and services within the same time frame as those without disabilities, with substantially equivalent ease of use. My School Dance strives to ensure that members of the public with disabilities are not excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination when using My School Dance.
Any non-conforming aspect of the application will be corrected in a timely manner.
