Disclosure of Information
Taskstream actively seeks to comply with all applicable statutes and regulations regarding maintaining the confidentiality and privacy of information held by it, including but not limited to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”).

Taskstream enables you to comply with your privacy and confidentiality obligations. However, you must be aware of your own obligations under FERPA or any other statute, regulation or other legal or institutional rule regarding the release of confidential information and act accordingly. You may participate in a variety of online forums on the Site, submit work to others for evaluation, share work with colleagues, and/or publish work in Taskstream or to the World Wide Web at large. Any information you disclose in these areas will be available to certain other end users, and may be collected and used by persons other than Taskstream. You should not disclose any information that you do not want others to know on these areas of the Site. Taskstream does not routinely monitor these areas, and you use forums and tools at your own risk. In addition, you may also provide us with information such as your name, subject and grade / university level that you are in or that you teach, contact email address (if supplied), lesson plans, assignments, work product, and assessment rubrics, that identifies your own content. This information will be available only to other individuals with Taskstream IDs and passwords within your organization with permission to view it, UNLESS YOU CHOOSE TO PUBLISH IT ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB. Personal information such as addresses and phone numbers are NEVER published on the Site by Taskstream and should not be by you unless you are sure that your audience is allowed to have such information.
Taskstream provides various communication tools that enable users to share work with users and non-users of Taskstream. Once you have shared work with a third party, Taskstream no longer can control access to that work and can make no assurances as to the privacy of that work. Do not disclose or send information to third parties that you do not want others to know, use or publish in other forums.
