Knewton is founded on the principle that every student in the world should be able to receive a high-quality education personalized to his or her needs. In our world, “personalized” also means “designed to protect.”
Knewton adheres to a single “privacy and security by design” policy and a set of principles that guide product development and delivery. That’s why at Knewton:
- We only use personal data to authenticate a user and personalize the learning experience (and do not sell it to third parties).
- We respect school and partner privacy policies and honor requests to access, correct, and delete personal data where appropriate.
- We use encryption, de-identification and security technologies specifically designed to enforce use restrictions and keep data inaccessible by others.
- We are open to user feedback because the world is constantly changing and we can learn from you.
As an original signatory to the student privacy pledge, our privacy commitment includes being transparent about our practices.
