UTILIZING THE SERVICE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MONITORING THE RIGHTS AND INTERESTS OF THEIR STUDENTS AND MUST THEREFORE
OBTAINING, WHERE APPLICABLE, PERTINENT CONSENT FROM PARENTS, LEGAL GUARDIANS OR ELIGIBLE STUDENTS (THOSE WHO ARE 18
YEARS OF AGE OR ATTEND A POSTSECONDARY INSTITUTION) PRIOR TO UTILIZING THE SERVICE. BLOOKET SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE
APPLICABLE, OF THE NECESSARY PARENTAL CONSENT. U.S. Educational Institutions and Parental Consent: Consistent with the
requirements of COPPA, if you or your school decide to utilize the Service with children under 13, you will be
electing to either obtain parental consent or to consent on behalf of the children's parents directly, which is
commonly referred to as "school consent." At the same time, yet subject to exceptions, FERPA prohibits schools from
disclosing personally identifiable information from a student's education record to a third party without written
consent from the parent or eligible student. Accordingly, schools must either obtain parental consent, or ensure that
their use of Blooket meets one of FERPA's exceptions to the written consent requirement. Typically, schools are
exempted from obtaining parental consent under FERPA when Blooket is identified as a "school official," meaning
Blooket is performing an institutional service or function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees.
Educators and schools may disclose certain information about students under the exception to FERPA's general prior
consent rule that are set forth in the statute and the regulations for the disclosure of "directory information" if
the school follows certain procedures set forth in FERPA. (34 CFR § 99.31(a)(11).) FERPA defines "directory
information" as information contained in the education records of a student that would not generally be considered
harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. Typically, "directory information" includes information such as name,
address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, and
dates of attendance. A school may disclose "directory information" to third parties without consent if it has given
public notice of the types of information which it has designated as "directory information," the parent's or eligible
student's right to restrict the disclosure of such information, and the period of time within which a parent or
eligible student has to notify the school in writing that he or she does not want any or all of those types of
information designated as "directory information." The means of notification could include publication in various
sources, including a newsletter, in a local newspaper, or in the student handbook. The school could also include the
"directory information" notification as part of the general notification of rights under FERPA. The school does not
have to notify a parent or eligible student individually.
European Educational Institutions and GDPR: According to article 8 of the GDPR, minors shall be entitled to give valid
consent only if they are 16 years old (unless Member States have set a lower age limit which, nonetheless, cannot be
under 13 years old). Under that age limit, processing of personal information related to minors shall be subject to
parental consent. Schools are in control of their students' personal information and are obliged to take all necessary
measures for protecting said information. This means that schools will have to be especially cautious when contracting
any service that may require disclosure of student personal information. In other words, schools are data controllers
in terms of GDPR and thus determine the purposes and means of the processing of student personal data. As a
consequence, schools will also be responsible for informing students and their parents accordingly about what data is
collected, which are the purposes of collection, how data is used and to which third parties it is disclosed,
implement best practices to protect the privacy of all of our student and non-student users, alike. We have
implemented additional controls and procedures for schools, school districts and teachers (collectively referred to as
“Schools”) when they use the Service for educational purposes through individual accounts. When the Service is used as
part of the School's educational program, the personal information related to the School's student users (“School
Users”) may include information defined as “education records” by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
(“FERPA”) or other information protected by similar state student data privacy laws. We refer to this information as
“Student Personal Data”.
Our collection and use of Student Personal Data is often governed by our contracts with Schools, by our Privacy
Policy, and by applicable privacy laws. For example, we work with Schools to protect Student Personal Data consistent
with FERPA and, for School Users under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). If you have any
questions about reviewing, modifying, or deleting the personal information of a School User, please contact your
Please note that in order for School accounts to be associated with a School and recognized as School accounts, the
accounts must be created by or at the direction of a School pursuant to a contract with the school or use by a school
official, using a school email address and associated with a School's class on the Service. For example, a School
Account is created when:
a teacher creates the user name, login and password to establish School User accounts and creates a class on the
an account is created by a School user at the direction of a School, using a School email address and associated
with a School's class on the Service
accounts are created pursuant to a separate contract between Blooket and the school district (or educational agency)
specifying that the accounts are School accounts.
In cases where we do not have a separate contract with a School district or educational agency, we may require
notification that the accounts are used for school purposes in order to recognize them as School Accounts. If you are
a School, please contact us to learn more about how to ensure that student accounts are set up and managed as School
Generally, the remainder of the processing of personal information we perform is necessary for the purposes of our
legitimate interests or those of third parties. For example, for legal compliance purposes or to maintain ongoing
confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of Blooket's systems, website, and overall services, we must
keep logs of Technical Information. As foreseen in the "Restrictions" and "Account Bans" sections of our Terms of
Service, the breach of certain rules in the use of the Service may lead to the suspension or indefinite ban of your
account, depending on the severity of the offense. In the event of an indefinite account ban, Blooket may keep part of
your personal information, such as, but not limited to, IP address and email address, to prevent you from accessing or
using the Service.
If we make any significant changes, we will provide prominent notice by posting a notice on the Service and/or
notifying you by email (using the email address you provided) prior to and after changes taking effect, so you can
informed about our collection, use, and disclosure of personal information through the Service. If you do not agree
Blooket permits registered users to invite visitors to the website. Visitors are only required to provide a username
to play a game or complete a homework assignment. Blooket permits children under the age of thirteen to become users
only with parental consent.
Blooket collects the minimal amount of information from users necessary to create accounts on our Service. Beyond this
information, users and visitors can submit responses. In addition to the information entered by the child, we
automatically collect some information from any use of our Service as set forth in the "Information Collected
Automatically" section. We use this information to provide the Service to the child, for security and safety purposes,
or as required by law or to enforce our Terms. We will not require children to provide more personal information than
is reasonably necessary in order to participate in the Service. If we discover that we have collected information from
a child in a manner inconsistent with COPPA, FERPA or any other applicable laws or regulations, we will take
appropriate steps to delete the information. We do not disclose any personal information about children to third
parties, except to service providers necessary to provide the Service, as required by law, or to protect the security
of the Service for other users. Information collected from students (including personal information and information
collected automatically) is never used or disclosed for third-party advertising, including any kind of first- or
third-party behaviorally targeted advertising, and children's personal information is never sold or rented to anyone,
including marketers or advertisers.
Blooket does not permit children under the age of 13 (a “Child” or “Children”) to create an account without the
consent and at the direction of a Parent or School official consenting in loco parentis. Children under 13 may create
an account with the parent's consent.
When Blooket is used by a School in an educational setting, we may rely on the School to provide the requisite consent
for Blooket to collect information from a School User under the age of 13, in lieu of parental consent as is described
in detail above in the Consent Section.
No student's profile is made available or visible to the public, or to any other students, through Blooket. If the
teacher chooses to display Blooket in their classroom by projecting via a smartboard or interactive whiteboard,
students physically present in that classroom may see other students' usernames, responses, comments or total scores.
EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND TEACHERS SHALL MAKE A RESPONSIBLE USE OF THE SERVICE AND AVOID COMPROMISING CHILDREN'S
PERSONAL INFORMATION AT ALL TIMES WHEN DISPLAYING BLOOKET IN THE CLASSROOM OR ON SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS OF TEACHERS OR
SCHOOLS. BLOOKET SHALL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR THE INAPPROPRIATE USE OF THE SERVICE BY THE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION OR
We store the data of visitors including usernames in order to allow users to evaluate the homework or evaluate
participation in games.
Minimal information: As mentioned before, Blooket collects the minimal amount of information from students necessary
to utilize our Service: we ask students who are invited to play the games or participate in homework to only create
a username. Students who join as users with parental consent or who are above specified ages only provide names,
email addresses and usernames. Consistent with the requirements of FERPA and COPPA in the United States and of GDPR
in Europe, among other applicable laws, we only collect, use, share, and retain student personal information for
purposes for which we were authorized by the educational institution/agency, teacher or the student. Beyond this
information, students can submit responses depending on the activities they are assigned, that will remain private
between teacher and student. In addition to the information entered by the child, we automatically collect some
information from any use of our Service as set forth in the "Information collected automatically" section.
Deleting inactive accounts: Blooket will delete inactive accounts and data in compliance with the data retention
policy of the company.
After deletion of the account or data, Blooket may retain copies and/or backups of the mentioned information for a
maximum term of eighteen (18) months. Nevertheless, Blooket shall not be responsible for the accidental loss or
destruction of data on behalf of users. Blooket will not be obliged to recover erased data stored in backups when
erasure is attributable to users. EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS UTILIZING THE SERVICE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLYING WITH
THE RETENTION OF STUDENT EDUCATION RECORDS FOR AS LONG AS LEGALLY APPLICABLE. STUDENT PROGRESS MAY BE SAVED FOR EITHER
SHORTER OR LONGER PERIODS THAN THE ONES STATED ABOVE IF SO DECIDED BY THE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION. TEACHER ACCOUNTS
WILL BE PROVIDED WITH NECESSARY TOOLS TO MANAGE AND DELETE STUDENT INFORMATION. BLOOKET SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR
ERASURE OF STUDENT PROGRESS DUE TO ACCOUNT DELETION AFTER AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF INACTIVITY OR BECAUSE OF THE VOLUNTARY
ELECTION TO DELETE TEACHER ACCOUNTS. SCHOOL OFFICIALS MAY REQUEST DELETION OF STUDENT INFORMATION AND CONTENT AT ANY
TIME BY CONTACTING BLOOKET AT CONTACT-US@BLOOKET.COM.
Any parents that want copies of their children's personal information that we may have stored can contact their
children's school personnel to that end. If a parent has authorized an account, they also may contact Blooket to
retrieve their child's personal information. At any time, the school can also refuse to permit us to collect further
personal information from its students, and can request that we delete the personal information we have collected from
them by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind that deleting records may require us to
the account in question. Also remember that before we can share the information with the school, or delete it per your
request, we will, by reasonable means, proceed to verify the identity of the requester.
Blooket collects two types of information about you: (1) information that you voluntarily provide us by using the
Blooket Service (described below under "Information you provide to us") and (2) information collected automatically as
result of your use of the Service (described below under “Information collected automatically”). The types and amounts
of information collected will vary depending on whether the user is a visitor to the site invited to participate in a
game. Only minimal information is collected for both users and visitors
There are currently two categories of users on our Service: users and visitors. We collect and store the following
types of information from each type of user:
Account Sign-up and Profile Information: To create an Blooket account, you may be asked to provide some basic
information. If you create an Blooket account as a user, you will be asked to enter your first name, last name,
username, password and email. Visitors who participate in games will be asked only for a username.
Contact Information: When you choose to provide us with your personal information through the Service in some other
manner (e.g., when you request a quote for upgrading to a "Blooket Plus", when you submit a copyright claim or
report any media on our platform, when you send us an email asking a question, or submit a support request).
Billing Information: When subscribing to any of our "Blooket Plus" options, you will be asked to provide necessary
information for processing the payment (e.g., credit/debit card number). As further explained in the Security
Like most web-based services, we (or our service providers) may automatically receive and log information on our
server logs from your browser or your device when you use the Service. For example, this could include the frequency
and duration of your visits to Blooket. If you use Blooket on different devices, we may link the information we
collect from those different devices to help us provide a consistent Service across your different devices. If we do
combine any automatically-collected information with personal information, we will treat the combined information as
automatically collect include:
Cookies and Other Similar Technologies: We (or our service providers) may use various technologies to collect and
store information when you visit our Service, including clear GIFs (also known as “web beacons”), “tags”, “scripts”,
and “cookies”. We also make use of persistent secure cookies: persistent cookie remains after you close your browser
(although they can be removed) and may be used by your browser to identify you on subsequent visits to the Service.
We may also use, collect and store information locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage
(including HTML 5). Like many services, Blooket uses these technologies to tailor the Service for you, and to help
the Service work better for you - for example, by remembering your language preferences.
Device Information: We collect, through our third-party analytics services, device-specific information such as your
operating system, hardware version, device settings, file and software names and types, battery and signal strength,
and device identifiers. This helps us measure how the Service is performing, and improve Blooket for you on your
Log Information: Like most online services, when you use our Service, we automatically collect and store certain
information in our server logs. Examples include:
Details of how you used our service, such as your activity on the Service, and the frequency and duration of your
visits to the Blooket Website.
Device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the
date and time of your request and referral URL.
This information helps us make decisions about what we should work on next - for example, by showing which features
are most (or least!) popular.
Location Information: When you use our Service we may collect and process information about your geographic
location, for example through GPS, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi signals. We collect coarse (i.e., city-level) location data.
We will not store or track your device location on an ongoing basis or without your permission. We do not share
precise geolocation data with third parties, other than our service providers as necessary to provide the Service.
Automated Decision Making (ADM) refers to a decision which is taken solely on the basis of automated processing of
your personal data. This means processing using, for example, software code or an algorithm, which does not require
human intervention. Profiling means using automated processes without human intervention (such as computer programs)
to analyze your personal information in order to evaluate your behavior or to predict things about you which are
relevant in the context of using Blooket, such as what kind of games or Blooket sets you utilized. As profiling uses
automated processing, it is sometimes connected with automated decision-making. Not all profiling results in automated
decision-making, but it can.
First and foremost, you should know that Blooket does not sell or rent any personal information to any third party for
any purpose including for advertising or marketing purposes. We use the information we collect from you to provide you
with the best Blooket experience. More specifically, this information is used to:
Provide and improve the Service, for example by developing new products and features.
Respond to your requests for information or customer support.
Customize the Service for you, and improve your experience with it.
Send you information about new features and Blooket products we believe you may be interested in.
Most crucially, to protect our community by making sure the Service remains safe and secure.
We use automatically collected information (described in the "Information Collected Automatically" section above) to
We store your personal information for as long as it is necessary to provide products and Services to you and others,
including those described above pursuant to our Data Retention Policy. Deletion will affect any on-going paid
subscriptions, which will be immediately cancelled. Note we may retain and use de-identified data (i.e., data which
has been stripped off all information that can be used to identify a person) for purposes of research, improvement of
our products and services, and/or the development of new products and services. We may also have to retain some
information after your account is deleted, to comply with legal obligations, to protect the safety and security of our
community or our Service, or to prevent abuse of our Terms. In case we keep copies or backups of personal information,
such copies or backups will be kept for a maximum term of eighteen (18) months after the deletion of your account.
First and foremost, you should know that Blooket does not sell or rent your, or your students' personal information to
any third party for any purpose - including for advertising or marketing purposes. We do not share personal
profiles are made available to the general public through our Service. Furthermore, students cannot share their
account information with anyone on Blooket. If you are a user, you may choose to share information or content through
the Service with other Blooket users - for example, things like your account information or Blooket sets. Please keep
in mind that information (including personal information or children's personal information) or content that you
voluntarily disclose to others - including other Blooket users you interact with through the Service can be viewed,
copied, stored, and used by the people you share it with. We cannot control the actions of people with whom you choose
to share information.
Service Providers: We do work with vendors, service providers, and other partners to help us provide the Service by
performing tasks on our behalf - we can’t build everything ourselves, after all! We may need to share or provide
information (including personal information) to them to help them perform these business functions, for example
sending emails on our behalf, database management services, database hosting, providing customer support software,
and security. Generally, these service providers do not have the right to use your personal information we share
with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. Additionally, these service providers must adhere to
Analytics Services: We use analytics services, including mobile analytics software, to help us understand and
improve how the Service is being used. These services may collect, store and use information in order to help us
understand things like how often you use the Service, the events that occur within the application, usage,
performance data, and from where the application was downloaded.
Aggregated Information and Non-Identifying Information: We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable
information publicly, including with users, partners or the press in order to, for example, demonstrate how Blooket
is used, spot industry trends, or to provide marketing materials for Blooket. Any aggregated information shared this
way will not contain any personal information.
Legal Requirements: We may disclose personal information if we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary
to comply with the law, such as complying with a subpoena or other legal process. We may need to disclose personal
information where, in good faith, we think it is necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of Blooket,
our employees, our community, or others, or to prevent violations of our Terms of Service or other agreements. This
includes, without limitation, exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection or
responding to government requests.
Sharing with Blooket Companies: Over time, Blooket may grow and reorganize. We may share your personal information
with affiliates such as a parent company, subsidiaries, joint venture partners or other companies that we control or
that are under common control by us, in which case we will require those companies to agree to use your personal
Change of Control: In the event that all or a portion of Blooket or its assets are acquired by or merged with a
third party, personal information that we have collected from users would be one of the assets transferred to or
only be able to handle your personal information as per this policy (unless you give consent to a new policy). We
will provide you with notice of an acquisition within thirty (30) days following the completion of such a
transaction, by posting on our homepage, and by email to your email address that you provided to us. If you do not
consent to the use of your personal information by such a successor company, you may request its deletion from the
company. In the unlikely event that Blooket goes out of business, or files for bankruptcy, we will protect your
personal information, and will not sell it to any third party.
With your Consent: Other than the cases above, we won't disclose your personal information for any purpose unless
you consent to it. Additionally, as discussed above, we will never sell or rent your personal information to
advertisers or other third parties.
Blooket does not track its users over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising and
therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
It is important to us that we keep your information safe and secure. To best provide our services, and keep your
information safe, we work with a few other companies (we can't do it all ourselves!). These companies ("third-party
service providers", "collaborators" or "agents") will only have access to the information they need to provide the
Blooket service. Below is a list of the service providers which, subject to their terms of service and privacy
policies, may have access to personal data to process on our behalf in accordance with our instructions, Privacy
Policy and any other requirements regarding confidentiality, security or integrity:
Amazon Web Services (AWS) for hosting Blooket's servers, videos, images and audios.
Google Services for cloud storage, hosting Blooket's servers, analytics on our website ("Google Analytics"), and for
spam and abuse protection ("reCAPTCHA").
Cloudinary for creating, managing and delivering images and audio across any browser.
Sendgrid for email messaging.
Mongodb is a general purpose, document-based, distributed database built for modern application developers and for
the cloud era.
Stripe as a payment processing service.
This list may change over time, and we will work hard to keep it up-to-date. Blooket reserves the right to change or
add service providers which provide services in concert with the provisions of this agreement.
We will transfer your personal information to third-party service providers only for limited and specific purposes. We
will obtain contractual assurances from our collaborators that they will safeguard personal information in a manner
consistent with this Policy and that they will provide the same level of protection as per best industry standards. We
recognize our responsibility and potential liability for onward transfers to agents. Where we have knowledge that an
agent is using or disclosing personal information in a manner contrary to this Policy and/or level of protection as
required by applicable laws and regulations, we will take reasonable steps to prevent, remediate or stop such use or
disclosure. If we transfer personal information to non-agent third parties, that is to say, any new collaborators that
are not included in the previously mentioned list, we will (1) notify you with all necessary information on any key
elements affecting the processing of your personal data, and (2) obtain contractual assurance from these parties that
they will provide the same level of security as per best industry standards and in accordance with any applicable laws
Your Blooket account is protected by a password. You can help us protect your account from unauthorized access by
keeping your password secret at all times. The security of your personal information is important to us. We work hard
to protect our community, and we maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect
against unauthorized use, disclosure of or access to personal information, such as:
Security Protocols: We periodically review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including
physical security measures, to protect against unauthorized access to systems.
Security Technology: We continually develop and implement features to keep your personal information safe - for
example, when you enter any information anywhere on the Service, we encrypt the transmission of that information
using secure socket layer technology (SSL) by default.
We ensure passwords are stored and transferred securely using encryption and salted hashing.
Employee Access: We use best-effort practices to secure usernames, passwords and any other means of gaining access
to users' data.
Although we make concerted good faith efforts to maintain the security of personal information, and we work hard to
ensure the integrity and security of our systems as per best industry standards, no practices are 100% immune, and we
can't guarantee the security of information. Outages, attacks, human error, system failure, unauthorized use or other
factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.
Initial Notice: Upon the discovery of a security breach that results in the unauthorized release, disclosure or
acquisition of personal information, we will notify electronically of such discovery to all affected users. This
