What kinds of information do we collect?
Peerceptiv collects the Names, Email Addresses, and Student ID Numbers provided by certain educational institutions.

We also collect the type of device used to access the site and IP addresses that are stored in temporary logs.
What is the purpose for collecting this data?
The information collected is used to authenticate user accounts. Additionally, student names and email addresses are available to instructors of the course in which those students are enrolled. Peerceptiv also uses email addresses to communicate with users about pending tasks within the system and updates that will affect the user experience.
How do we categorize the data subjects?

No. Any data collected in Peerceptiv is for use within the educational technology.
How long do we keep your personal data on file?
Peerceptiv keeps information required for a user’s account, for a period of 5 years unless the user chooses to delete said information. This permits the user to login to Peerceptiv and view old course results if they wish.
How do we protect the data that we collect?
