Last Update: September 1, 2023
We offer the Platform to individuals who create an account and agree to our Terms as an individual user. You can also access our Platform on your own, or through your educational institution, school district or school board (“School”). We offer the Platform to representatives of a School who agree to our Terms to use with their students. If you are a student, or a parent/guardian of a student, your School may have provided you with information on how the School uses the Platform. If you are a representative of a School and using the Platform with your students, we rely on you to ensure you only use the Platform where you have received authorization from the School to use the Platform with your classroom.
