Fast Grader for Google Classroom

Privacy Policy

Please also see our Terms of Service.

Fast Grader is currently in an early stage of development. As such, analytics tools will be incorporated into the platform, and your use of the site will be analyzed in detail for the development of the project.

Fast Grader will not sell your data, including your personally identifiable information or email address to third parties.

However, we will utilize Google AdSense to support free use of our platform with advertisements. Please note the following regarding Google AdSense:

Google AdSense

  • Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to your website or other websites.
  • Google's use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.

Use of your Google Data

This application integrates with Google Classroom and Google Drive. By logging in and creating an account, you grant us permission to access data associated with your google account.

Your own personal information associated with your Google Account, like your name and email address, are stored in our secure database, and are never shared with third parties. Your username may be shared with third parties like LogRocket and similar analytics platforms for the sake of providing us knowledge about your use of the website and improving our platform.

The functionality of this application requires us to consume data from Google Classroom and Google Drive. In these cases, we only save the data that is necessary to the functionality of this website, like course names, assignment names, student names, your grades, and your comments. This data is stored in our database, but it always belongs to you. You have the right to delete this data at any time, and upon deleting the grading session from your profile home page, it is immediately, permanently, and irreversibly deleted from our database as well. Security and privacy when dealing with Classroom and Drive data, in particular, is of the utmost importance to us. Student names are protected by COPPA, and will always be securely stored and never shared.

Our use of LogRocket to analyze your usage of the grading tool is the only exception to this rule, but we use a find grain of detail in specifying exact which content on the page is removed from LogRocket's view. For example, (click to see source), inside the grading tool, we apply the data-private attribute to the student name on the page, which tells LogRocket to not record the content of this field, and therefore LogRocket cannot see the student names despite recording the remainder of the page.

LogRocket

LogRocket will be used to analyze your usage of the grading app and continuously improve it. Most of the content on the page, including grades, comments, and student submission content is captured by this tool. However, we have ensured that LogRocket will not capture any student names whatsoever, so any assignment submission data it does have visibility of will be anonymous.

Additionally, we will likely utilize these third party services on our site in the near future, although they are not implemented presently.

Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule ("COPPA")

Fast Grader is a COPPA compliant application. Any COPPA-protected data stored in our database is stored securely, and will perpetually be handled in accordance with COPPA regulations. COPPA demands that the personally identifiable data of individuals under 13 years of age is never sold or transferred to a third party, and that we continue to engage in industry best practices to prevent a security breach.

Broadly speaking, these are pieces of data that we do store to allow our platform to function, and we always consider this information to be COPPA protected, and assume that it belongs to individuals under 13 years of age:

  • student names
  • links to students' profile pictures

We will continue to update the list above to keep you updated on what COPPA-protected data is stored in our databases.

Account Deletion

Because this site is in an early stage of development, if you would like delete your account, please send me a personal email at [email protected] so I can accommodate that request.

Note that if you can delete grading sessions in your profile home page without deleting your account. This will have the effect of permanently deleting student names, grades, and feedback from our database. However, if you do wish to delete your account and all associated data, I can easily accommodate that request. Please just ask!
