Changes in the privacy policy

Additio app will give notice and require new consent to any material changes to this privacy policy

Access to information 

The information of the teachers and students introduced in Additio is only accessible by teachers and schools. At school, the administrator grants access permission to all staff members, but he/she can not access their data.

Information privacy

Additio takes data and privacy security very sternly. Our engineers have worked hard to protect sensitive data and encrypt communications, which helps keep the system safe.

We do not sell personal information to third parties and we will only use your information following our privacy policy. Teachers can upload the data and can access, download or specifically request the data in info@additioapp.com

Additio does not rent or sell any information related to students or teachers, to third parties for marketing or advertising purposes.

Students can not communicate privately with others. The teacher manages his students and there is no possibility of contact or exchange of data or similar between them.

Daily backups

All the information that is synchronized between the applications and the web version is duplicated to another server immediately to duplicate the security availability. We also perform several backups every day and those are sent to another server for double security. In case something happens to the main servers, we can restore all the information in a minimum amount of time.

Data pseudonymization

We use identifier codes to store information related to the teachers’ students to prevent a relationship between this data and the subjects without using additional information.

Download the data whenever you want

You can export and download all your Additio data with a very easy process. In a few steps, you can create an Excel file to save your files or use the data in another service. Here you can know more about this functionality.

Billing and banking information

Additio does not store any confidential banking information and has included the highest levels of encryption for bank transfers. For that reason, we work with two of the most prestigious companies to collect payments: PayPal and Stripe. They are responsible for collecting payments so that it is not necessary to store any confidential banking information on our servers. All teachers who use the Additio must complete a two-step authentication process to verify their accounts and do the payment.

Student Privacy Pledge

Additio is also a signatory to the Student Privacy Pledge, agreeing to a set of principles intended to safeguard student privacy, including responsible stewardship, protection, and transparent handling of student personal information. Additio also commits to the only contract with future companies that are consistent with the Pledge principles.
