We consider data a liability and only collect and share the minimum amount required to provide you with a great Service. We have made an effort to make this document as clear and easy to understand as we can, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out at

How We Use Information We Collect

BMEE: We use the information we collected from all of our Services to provide, maintain, protect, and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Blocksi and our users.

We also use collected information to respond to any of your enquiries, and to fulfill your orders and requests. In addition, we use some of the collected data to analyze how you interact with our Services.

We use the collected information to comply with the law or legal proceedings. We also use anonymous and de-identified data to assess, improve, and develop our business, products, and services and for similar research and analytics purposes. Such information is generally not subject to the restrictions in this Product Privacy Policy, provided it does not identify and could not be used to identify a particular individual.

We do not sell Personal Student Information. We do not use Personal Student Information to target advertisements or market to students or anyone else or for any other purposes prohibited by the applicable legislation. We use your Personal Student Information only in accordance with the applicable data privacy laws and student privacy laws across different jurisdictions.

Return or Deletion of Customer Data

As per the Customer’s request, we are committed to deleting Student Personal Information both during and post the expiration of all Customers’ licenses for our Services, unless we are required to retain such information to comply with our legal obligations with law enforcement, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements. Upon receiving the deletion instruction, we will take reasonable efforts to delete and / or de-identify such information in a commercially reasonable amount of time under applicable time. Upon license termination, we may also agree to return the School’s Personal Student Data. Similarly, we will follow the Customer’s documented instruction to return this data, making reasonable efforts to do so in a legally and commercially suitable time frame, unless retention is legally mandatory.

On termination of the Blocksi Manager Agreement due to Customer breaching its payment obligations or opting not to purchase the Services at the end of a free trial of the Services, we will delete all Customer Data from its systems within a maximum period of 180 days, unless applicable legislation or legal process prevents it from doing so.

Accessing and Updating Your Personal Data

We are committed to providing parents and guardians the ability to access their child’s web analytics and insights via the Parent Dashboard. Data inaccuracies can be promptly corrected or deleted, unless business or legal obligation necessitate retention. Prior to any changes, parent / guardian identity verification is required. Individuals above 18 years, including emancipated minors have equivalent access rights, subject to identity confirmation. Repetitive, technically complex, privacy compromising, or impractical requests may be denied. When feasible, we provide information access and correction free of charge, barring disproportionate efforts.

We provide a variety of user controls that enable Blocksi Manager for Education Everywhere users (administrator and guardians) to make meaningful choices about how long information is stored in Blocksi services. Depending on the settings enabled by the school, users can use the various controls described in the Privacy Policy, such as Blocksi activity controls, to manage their privacy and information. We provide additional information for parents, students, and administrators on the Blocksi Manager for Education Everywhere Privacy Center.

School Administrators can facilitate this process in the line with our Services’ functionality. To cease data collection or usage, parents or guardians may request service controls to restrict features or services, or completely delete a child’s account. Guidance for administrators on how to use service controls to accomplish this is available in the Help Center.

BMEE provides various user controls enabling meaningful decisions on data storage duration.
