Apple ID For Students Parent Privacy Disclosure

Collection of Information
As part of the process of creating an Apple ID for your student, we will ask you to provide us with the following information: your student’s full name, birthdate, password, and the answers to three security questions that can be used to verify access to your student’s account. In order to protect the security of your student’s account and preserve your ability to easily reset your student’s password online, you should keep the answers to these questions confidential.
We may collect other information from your student that in some cases has been defined under COPPA as personal information. For example, when your student is signed in with his or her Apple ID, we may collect device identifiers, cookies, IP addresses, geographic locations, and time zones where his or her Apple device is used. We also may collect information regarding your student’s activities on, or interaction with our websites, apps, products and services.

Use of Information
As set forth in Apple’s Privacy Policy, Apple may use your student’s information to communicate important notices, deliver products, send information or push notifications, provide services, and improve our products, content, and services. We may also use his or her information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis and research.
We may use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information (data that does not, on its own, permit direct association with your student’s identity) for any purpose. For example, we may aggregate and use information regarding customer activities on our website, iCloud services, and iTunes Store and from our other products and services to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information.
Limit Ad Tracking will be enabled by default for all devices associated with a student’s Apple ID to ensure they do not receive targeted advertising from Apple. However, your student will still be able to receive non-targeted advertising on those devices.
