Music as Language, doing business under The Scholarship Foundation of Northshore (collectively, "MAL", "we", "our", or "us") is deeply committed to protecting the privacy of our users’ personal information. This MAL Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") applies to the Music As Language App and governs our data collection, processing and usage. Access to and use of the App, and the services provided on the App (collectively, the "Service"), will be subject to this Privacy Policy as set forth below. 

We offer services through our app called Music As Language which is available through iOS and Android devices. 

PLEASE NOTE: Our App is a general audience app through which we do not knowingly collect information from children located in the United States under the age of 13 and children located in the European Union under the age of 16 (collectively, "Children" and each, a "Child"). Children may access the MAP App through a parent approved purchase of the App and installed on their device. Information collected from children through the App is outlined below.

 We may collect information directly from anyone who uses the app, whether student or parent. In addition, we may use cookies and other tracking means to collect information from anyone using the app.

When you create an account on our App, we may collect the following information:

  • Your Name

  • Your Email Address

MAL collects and processes this basic account information in order to provide you with an account, access to the Services, and communicate with you regarding our Services. An account is required to save and track your progress on our Services. 

Performance Information. If you establish an account with us and choose to save your progress on our Services, we will collect information about your performance on our Services. This will enable us to return you to the correct place when you return to our app.

We use the information described above to provide, maintain, and improve the app and services, to communicate with you. 

Necessary Uses and Sharing of Your Information. When you create an account on our Services, you are given the option to consent to the use of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Certain uses of your information are necessary in order to provide the Services to you. These include your name and contact information to create and maintain an account. If you do not consent to the use of this information, we are unable to provide services to you.

Additional Disclosures. We also may disclose personal information about you with your permission, as required by applicable law or legal process, as necessary to enforce our Terms of Service or Privacy Policy, to investigate or defend against third-party claims or allegations, to protect the security and integrity of our Services and property, and to protect our rights or personal safety and that of our users or others. We may disclose or transfer your personal information in connection with, or during negotiations concerning, any sale, merger, bankruptcy, sale of assets, financing, acquisition, or reorganization, in whole or in part.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

We take into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, and implement appropriate technical, physical and organizational measures to ensure an appropriate level of security to protect the personal information that we collect and process, both while in transit and while in storage. No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we use reasonable security safeguards to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee absolute security.

Children located in the United States under the age of 13 and children located in the European Union under the age of 16 are not permitted to use the App without the consent of a parent or legal guardian. If you become aware that your Child has provided us with personal information in connection with the Individual Edition without your consent, please contact us at musicaslanguage@sf-ns.org. If we become aware that a Child has provided us with personal information in connection with the App without the parents' consent or consent of a legal guardian, we will take steps to delete such information and terminate the Child's account.
