Healthy Player ONE is committed to ensuring that your information is secure, and your privacy is protected. The information below outlines our privacy and security policies. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we store. Our security protocols are detailed further in this document.

Accessibility and Notice – We maintain a copy of our latest privacy policy at https://www.healthyplayerone.com/privacy-policy/. If we make changes in the way we use Personal Information or Children’s Personal Information, we will update our Privacy Policy page with this update and advise the district administrator of each school system actively subscribed to our service through their dashboard notices. You will have the choice to consent to the new changes.

How we use Healthy Player ONE

Healthy Player ONE is a small application installed by school district officials on district-owned gaming computers’ hard drives. Once installed, the application is capturing video footage of game play along with audio on the player’s headset, as well as measure the time the user is on the device. That information is uploaded daily to Healthy Player ONE cloud dashboard. Once uploaded to our online dashboard, the usage record stored on your device is cleared. At any given time, the file on your device only maintains data since the last automatic upload. Once installed by district officials, only authorized district officials may remove that software.

Further, Healthy Player ONE allows a player to record video and audio experienced during game play to document the physical and verbal actions of other players. This is intended as a means of accurately documenting if any harassment or other inappropriate behavior is taking place. These videos are also uploaded and can only be reviewed by authorized school district officials and by Healthy Player ONE staff who may assist your institution with the review of the incident.

  • Data Accessibility: Although we collect only limited student information (name and username), students and parents may wish to access any reports of injury or bullying involving themselves or their child. It is the responsibility of the academic institution to share reports with students and parents, as applicable. Such data may be accessed by authorized school officials with access to the Healthy Player ONE dashboard.
  • Disposal of Data: Healthy Player ONE permanently deletes any personal identifiable data after the termination of a contract, when no longer needed, or when advised to do so by the educational institution.
  • Discovery of a security breach that results in unauthorized release of personally identifiable data: Healthy Player ONE shall promptly notify affected educational agencies of such breach, shall investigate, and shall restore the integrity of its data systems as soon as possible. Healthy Player ONE will fully cooperate and assist with required notices to those individuals affected by such breach.

    • In any instance we require that our vendors with whom student personal information is shared in order to deliver the educational service, if any, are obligated to implement these same commitments for the given student personal information.
  • Third Parties (Non-Identifiable Usage Data ONLY): Healthy Player ONE may collect and compile de-identified, aggregate usage data across all its customers for the limited use of research and other business purposes.

This information will NOT be used for ad tracking purposes.
  • Successor Entities: In the case we sell, transfer, or merge our business with another entity, we will only transfer personally identifiable data about our Clients if the mentioned entity agrees to a data privacy policy similar or stricter than ours.

Commitments to State/National/International Student Data Privacy Efforts

Healthy Player ONE is a trusted steward of personal data. To that end, we acknowledge our efforts to comply with the following student privacy efforts, as well as any other efforts introduced not reflected below.

International Student Privacy Pledge

As a signatory to the Student Privacy Pledge (https://studentprivacypledge.org/) our goal is to both support the effective use of student information and safeguard student privacy and information security. Healthy Player ONE maintains a comprehensive security program that is reasonably designed to protect the security of personal student information.

As of July 22, 2020 Healthy Player ONE’s privacy policy was approved by the Future of Privacy Forum. By signing this pledge, Healthy Player ONE will:

  • Not sell student personal information
  • Not behaviorally target advertising
  • Use data for authorized education purposes only
  • Not change privacy policies without notice and choice
  • Enforce strict limits on data retention
  • Support parental access to, and correction of errors in, their children’s information
  • Provide comprehensive security standards
  • Be transparent about collection and use of data

FERPA Compliance

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA sets forth protocols for ensuring privacy and security of personally identifiable information of students. Healthy Player ONE adheres to the data protection protocols set forth in FERPA.

COPPA Compliance

Healthy Player ONE is compliant with the regulations put forth by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Healthy Player ONE collects and stores only that information which enables users to operate Healthy Player ONE products, such as name, username, and password. Healthy Player ONE does not intentionally collect and store personally identifying information of student users.

CIPA Compliance

The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requires schools and libraries receiving certain e-Rate benefits from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to adhere to policies that provide safe internet experiences for minors. These include policies related to:

  • Preventing access by minors to inappropriate matter on the Internet;
  • The safety and security of minors when using electronic mail, chat rooms and other forms of direct electronic communications;
  • Unauthorized access, including so-called “hacking,” and other unlawful activities by minors online;
  • Unauthorized disclosure, use, and dissemination of personal information regarding minors; and
  • Measures restricting minors’ access to materials harmful to them.

Healthy Player ONE does not prevent access to inappropriate websites. That burden belongs to the institution.
