While using Jochi. While using the planner feature, we collect the following: your manually added assignments, the deadline, class, description and priority level. We also collect information when you book meetings with your peers & teachers including the other parties involved, and the time & date. In the clubs tab, we collect information on what clubs you are in, what you have joined and documents your club leader uploads. Finally, in the study feature, we collect information about your study sessions. This includes the subject, time, and post session reflection.

Information we get from your Administrators
Profile Information. Your administrators share information about you to us - what clubs you lead, and your enrollment status at school.
Information we get from your Learning Management System
Learning Management System Information. Jochi only allows you to interact with other students and teachers from the same school. To do this, we need access to your learning management system account information to verify which school you attend. When you share your student ID number, you are allowing Jochi to access information in your LMS profile, such as your email address, name, classes, and assignments.
How We Use Information
We collect this information so that we provide you with the maximum and appropriate support possible. Collecting this information allows us to give you a better experience in the following ways:
Developing, operating, improving, delivering, maintaining, and protecting Jochi products and services.
Providing your admin with user insights so they are more informed about their students.
Creating anonymous data that we use for things like analytics.
Enhancing the safety and security of our products and services.
Verifying your identity and preventing fraud or other unauthorized or illegal activity.
Enforcing our Terms of Service and other usage policies.
How We Share Information
With other Jochi users. We may share the information below with other Jochi users at your school. Your availability. For teachers, students will be able to access what times you have chosen to be available for meetings. When a student sends a meeting request, teachers have the choice to approve or decline the request. If the request is approved, the meeting will show up on your calendar of choice. For students, your availability will be shown to your peers. As a club leader, any changes you make to club times, club documents/files, and the club description will be updated for all student users at your school.
With service providers. We may share information about you with service providers that help us run our business, like the company that helps us store our data.

With third parties for legal reasons. We may share information about you if we reasonably believe it’s necessary to:
Comply with legal process, governmental request, or applicable law, rule, or regulation.
Investigate, remedy, or enforce potential Terms of Service violations.
Protect the rights, property, and safety of us, our users, or others.
Detect and resolve any fraud or security concerns.

How Long We Keep Your Information
We store your basic account information—like your name, school, and email—for as long as you have an account with Jochi. If you ever decide that you don’t want us to keep your information, you can request to delete it through this link. When we delete any information, it might still be in our archives. Keep in mind that in some cases we may not delete your information if we’re legally required to store your information or to suspend our deletion practices, or if we receive reports of abuse or other Terms of Service violations. We may also keep certain information in backup for a limited time.
Control over Your Information
We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with these choices regarding use of information on our platform:
Email Communications. We may send you newsletters and other emails describing things like new features. When you receive these emails from us, you can “opt out” by following the unsubscribe instructions in the email, or you can just contact us directly. Even if you “opt out”, we may still send you emails about our services, like information about your account.
Changing or Deleting Your Personal Information. You can change some of your information, such as your profile picture, by adjusting your account settings. You can also request to change or delete your personal information by contacting us. We may keep some personal data for legal, security, and business reasons.

The security of your personal information is important to us. We take steps to protect the personal information we collect. Remember, security risk exists across all websites and apps, so we can’t guarantee the security of your information.
Jochi is designed for middle & high school students, so we don’t knowingly collect personal information from anyone under 13. If we find out that we’ve collected a child’s information without parental consent, we’ll delete it. Parents with concerns should contact us.
