Parents, legal guardians, or eligible pupils may review personally  identifiable information in the pupil’s records and correct erroneous information by contacting their LEA  directly. In the event of an unauthorized disclosure of a pupil’s records, NTC will notify the LEA and will provide  the LEA with information to be shared with the affected parent(s), legal guardians(s), or eligible pupil(s). Pupil  records will be deleted and/or de-identified in accordance with our agreements with each school and as  described in this Privacy Notice. 

Student Data Privacy Principles: We are committed to the following principles to protect Student Data:  

  • We collect, maintain, use and share Student Data only to provide and support the Services as described in  our Privacy Notice, to maintain, develop, support or improve our Services, and as otherwise permitted by our  agreements or with the consent of the parent, guardian, Student, organization, or school.  
  • We do not use or disclose Student Data for targeted advertising purposes. While we do permit third-party  advertising partners to operate on our Services for the purpose of retargeting, analytics, and attribution  services, we take steps to disable third-party ad networks from collecting information for targeted advertising  purposes within NTC Learning Platforms. 
  • We maintain a comprehensive data security program designed to protect the types of Student Data maintained  by the Services.  
  • We will clearly and transparently disclose our data policies and practices to our users.  
  • We will never sell Student Data unless the sale is part of a corporate transaction, such as a merger, acquisition,  bankruptcy, or other sale of assets, in which case we will require the new owner to continue to honor the terms  provided in this Privacy Notice or we will provide the school with notice and an opportunity to opt-out of the  transfer of Student Data by deleting the Student Data before the transfer occurs.  
  • We will not make any material changes to our Privacy Notice or contractual agreements that relate to the  collection or use of Student Data without first giving notice to the school and providing a choice before the  Student Data is used in a materially different manner than was disclosed when the information was collected. 

If you have any questions about our practices with regard to Student Data, please contact us at
