Frequently Asked Questions:
I’m a teacher and I want to use the application. What should I do?
If you want to use the platform to teach classes, please note that, according to data protection regulations, you assume the role of data controller, while ClassInTheBox acts as the data processor. As a platform that fully complies with data protection regulations, we want to offer you all the guarantees so that you can use it in your educational center or in your professional work. To do so, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request a data processing addendum or data access contract, as established by law.
I’m a parent, and my child’s educational center wants to use this tool, is it safe?
You can trust our tool. We only process the strictly necessary data under the coordination of the educational center or teacher, who design the educational activities in which the students’ data is processed. This data includes institutional email, images, and voice (if the activity requires students to record themselves with their devices), and the data that students provide in the “pintagged videos” uploaded by the teacher. The center has control over the institutional user accounts and can manage the resources uploaded and used on the platform at any time.
Can children under the age of fourteen use the application?
Yes, as long as they have been invited by a teacher and use an institutional email account provided and managed by the educational center. To register on the platform and use it independently of the academic center, the user must be over 14 years old.
And what about users over fourteen years old?
Users over fourteen years old can use the platform by being invited by their teacher or academic center, using the institutional email account, or registering on the platform independently if they wish to use it as a study tool.
If I’m a teacher, who owns the content?
If you are a teacher and use your institutional email account, both your user account and the content generated with it belong to the center where you work, and therefore, you can only use it if the center authorizes it.
On the other hand, if you are an independent user of an educational center and register directly on the platform with a personal email, you will be responsible for that account and have full control over it. We remind you that to use it with students on your own, you must request the data access contract or data processing addendum provided for in personal data protection legislation.
If I have an issue with using the application, where should I go?
Firstly, inform ClassInTheBox by sending an email to email@example.com. If you are using an institutional email account, you should also contact your educational center and report the incident.
Where are the pintagged videos stored?
The videos and data are stored on our servers located in the European Union, which comply with the highest security standards and have been duly certified. We do not transfer data internationally to third countries that do not meet the requirements imposed by the GDPR.
What happens if a user cancels their account or the center no longer wants to use the service?
