Privacy Policy for the AbbySchools App

Abbotsford School District

The AbbySchools app, developed by Sotropa Communications Inc., provides information, news, events and school or department contacts to the constituents of the Abbotsford School District. The constituents are app users including students, parents, staff and the public. Users can choose to be notified when new information is published. The app’s notifications settings are determined by the settings you choose on your device, and you are asked beforehand whether or not you wish to receive notifications on your device. At any time, users can choose to turn on or turn off those notifications in their device settings.

The AbbySchools app uses Google Analytics, an analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). The information generated by the cookie about a users’s use of the app (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the app, compiling reports on app usage activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Further information about Google’s privacy policy may be obtained from http://www.google.com/privacy.html.

No personal information is requested nor collected when using the AbbySchools app features. No personal information is gathered or stored by Sotropa Communications Inc. or Abbotsford School District when you choose to receive notifications.

Users may optionally choose to provide a bug report or other app feedback to the developers using the ‘Report a Bug’ link within the app. This directs users to a webform on the Abbotsford School District website and will share device information such as operating system, software versions, hardware model and device ID for the purposes of testing and quality assurance. In addition, the user may optionally provide contact information for followup related to their submitted bug report or app feedback.
