We have no interest in advertising in Seesaw. Again, our business model is straightforward: we charge schools and districts for optional, additional features on top of our free product.
We never advertise in Seesaw.
Students and their schools own the work added to Seesaw. If you’d ever like to save your content elsewhere or use a different product, you can download what you’ve added to Seesaw to your computer or mobile device. You can also delete your account at any time and we will permanently delete your account and all associated data within 60 days.
We don’t own the content you add to Seesaw.
Teachers control what is shared and with whom. Unless teachers choose to share, no student work is visible outside of the classroom. Teachers can choose to invite family members to see the work their child has added to Seesaw or post some items more publicly (such as to a Seesaw blog).
Student work is private to the classroom by default.
This means we do things like provide secure communication with our servers at all times, encrypt journal content at rest, and run regular 3rd party security audits to make sure your information is secure. Read more about how we protect your privacy and security.
We use the latest security industry best practices to protect you.
We are transparent about our practices, and will notify you if things change.
Seesaw is fully compliant with these important laws so it’s safe to use Seesaw in the classroom.
