Terms of Service
Study Swami is a product offered by Virtual Learning Environment Solutions, Inc., which is referred to as the "Corporation" below.
Statement of Rights and Responsibilities
By using or accessing the Study Swami, you agree to this statement of the terms of service, including as updated from time to time.
Sharing your content and information
We don't share your content or personal information except as you designate when you, for instance, link your Study Swami account to another calendar. See also our Data Policy below.
You agree that you will not upload malicious code. You will not act such as to steal information from other users, perform denial of service attacks or otherwise induce severe load on our servers in a malicious way, or do anything unlawful or use the site to conduct unlawful activities. You also won't help anybody else do these things.
You also agree to not share your password or grant anyone else access to your account.
You understand that you may incur charges by your mobile carrier or internet provider above and beyond what the Corporation charges.
There is no third-party advertising or "targeted" ads of any kind on Study Swami.
Changes to the Terms
If you violate the letter or spirit of this Statement, or otherwise create risk or possible legal exposure for us, we can stop providing all or part of Study Swami to you. We will notify you by email or at the next time you attempt to access your account.
Limitations of use
Study Swami is for use primarily in the United States of America, with the exception that it is not for use in the (United States District Court) Eastern District of Texas.
You agree to resolve any cause of action, claim or dispute you have with us arising out of or relating to this Statement or the Corporation exclusively in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts or a state court located in Essex County, Massachusetts, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating all such claims. The laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will govern this Statement, as well as any claim that might arise between you and us, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
If anyone brings a claim against us related to your actions, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs) related to such claim. We will do our best to enforce our terms of service for the safety of all, but we cannot be held responsible for the conduct of others.
We provide the Study Swami service "as-is" and you use it at your own risk. We cannot guarantee its fitness for any particular purpose. You agree that if you have a claim against a third party, you will release the Corporation, its directors and agents from any claims and damages.
Data and information about you (Data Policy).
Information you knowingly provide.
We store the schedule information that you enter. We also have a partial history of your analyses so we can present your history back to you. We do NOT collect and store grades or scores. Our analyses are based on, "Did you do better than last time?" or, "Did you do as well as you wanted?" not, "What was your grade on that exam?"
We store the email addresses of the user of the account, as well as login information. We may use this address to notify you of updates to the Study Swami website or its terms of service or data policy or cookie use policy.
We use the "best practices" of internet security, including data transfer and storage, but, as you (should) know, this is no guarantee of security against future cyber crime. We are also bound to release data to law enforcement on legal request; and we should all assume that spy agencies have access to all internet traffic and may intercept and decode your information without your (or our) knowledge or consent.
Information you provide that you may not know about.
Change of control of the Corporation.
As is the case with most companies, online or not, if the ownership or control of all or part of our or their assets changes, your information in whole or in part may be transfered to the new owner.
Some of our information comes from Google Analytics. This information may include demographic information including your age, your sex, and your interests based on what websites you have visited that Google knows about. We do not share that information. Frankly, all we care about is how many people are visiting the site.
If you are surprised that this information is available, welcome to the club. We are writing this update to our policies shortly after learning of the availability of these data (disclosure is a requirement to use them). So we're not exactly sure what we are going to see when we look at it.... There are several things you can do about this data collection, but, frankly, if you've shared your information on social sites like Hangouts and Facebook this may not work. But you can install browser addons that allow you to control how websites collect and share information: Ghostery makes one, as does Google itself. You can go here to add Google's tool to your browser. Firefox also has a "do not track" option that may help. Ghostery is available as an extension/add-on for your browser.
We do not participate in Google's remarketing program (the stuff that follows you around the web- you know, where you see the an ad on Facebook for something you were looking at on Amazon).
Your browser may allow you to turn off all cookies, but the site won't work without them. It will work just fine without the tracking cookies, however.
