What is Personal Information

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you, specifically your name, address, e-mail address, country of residence, as well as other information when such information is combined with your personal information (e.g. name of education institution, student ID, grades).
Personal information does not include "aggregate" information, which is data we collect about the use of our Web site and our System. Our privacy policy does not restrict or limit our collection and use of aggregate information.
The Xorro Service enables users to create, edit and store content designed for participative group access. As such, the Service must store data relating to the following categories: The data collected by Xorro is minimal. No information from students educational records is released to Xorro from the institution, students or instructors during registration. Xorro may be used with just a participant ID, and no other identifiers. Where participant emails or other identifiable data is collected, it is on behalf of the Facilitator or the Institution and is not utilised by Xorro for any other purpose.
Xorro collects and stores Personal Information when you download or activate our Software, register to use our Service, ask a question, complete a form, conduct a transaction, or send us an email. If you do not provide the requested information, you may not be able to access or use some of the features and functions of our Service. We use your Personal Information to complete transactions, respond to your requests, deliver the products and services you request, and notify you of promotions, updates, or special offers that we think may interest you.
Users may create or import Content into the Service. You are solely responsible for ensuring that you have the right to use any Content which you upload to Xorros servers, make available to Participants, or otherwise link to using Xorros Service.


You acknowledge and agree that by accessing our Web site or using our Software or our Service you fully understand, accept and voluntarily consent to the collection, use, retention and disclosure of personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
It is always your choice whether or not you provide us with your personal information; however, a decision to withhold personal information may restrict or prevent us from providing you with a particular product or service. We will only collect, use, and disclose your personal information with your consent, except where otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirement.

Collection of Personal Information

For Facilitators: In order to use certain features of our services you must first complete a registration process and establish an account ("Account"). During registration for your Account you will be required to provide your name, your email address and the name of the educational institution that you are associated with, and to establish a user name and password. Xorro will retain this information and associate it with your Account.
For participants: Xorro collects personal data about you if required by the Facilitator. This may include your first name, last name and a unique identifier (such as student ID or your email address). If collected, this data will be used exclusively to identify your responses.
In addition, if a participant purchases or is provided with a Participant Plus account, Xorro will establish a full account for the participant on the Service. In this case Xorro will store the participants email address, and choice of username and password in addition to name and ID.
Xorro servers automatically record information about participants use of the Service, such as when you log in and submit answers to questions asked by Facilitators. We will associate that information with the relevant Facilitator account. The Facilitators may use those data for academic evaluation purposes. We store and maintain personal and associated account information in order to provide the Service.
Xorro may conduct analyses to study the effectiveness of the Service and thus improve its value. No identification of users will be revealed at any point to any third party. We do not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose personal and associated account information about our Web site users.
In addition, to place an order for subscriptions or purchases, Xorro will require that you provide payment information such as credit card numbers and billing addresses and Xorro will also acquire your IP address. Credit card information, including the card number, expiry date and security code, may be securely collected by us and passed directly to payment processors over a secure socket layer. Credit card data is not retained by Xorro in any form.
