California Consumer Privacy Act

Seesaw complies with the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and other California laws applicable to your data. The purposes for which Seesaw collects your information, the categories and specific types of information, and our practices and policies regarding the processing of your information are described below and in our Privacy Policy.


Account Information: When you create an account on Seesaw we collect your name, email address, password, and profile picture. Seesaw may also collect your phone number if you enter it in your Account Settings or if someone adds it on your behalf with your permission.

Journal Content: Seesaw collects content that is added to a class or student journal. This content may include photos, videos, audio, drawings, files, notes, hyperlinks, and other ways of documenting student learning. We also collect comments on posts in the class and student journals, including text and voice recordings.

Messages: Seesaw collects all messages that are sent and received in Seesaw. Messages may include text, audio, video, photos, drawings, files, notes, hyperlinks or other information.

Activities: Teachers may use Seesaw to create activities to use with their students. Activities may include text or voice instructions for how to complete the activity, an example of a correct response or a template for students to edit.

Activity Author Profiles: Teachers who choose to publish their activities to the Community Activity Library or the Activity Library managed by their school or district can also create an Activity Author Profile. This includes the name and profile picture they choose to publish on their Author Profile, as well as their school name and location.

Communications: Seesaw collects any information you send to us directly, such as email, phone, or chat communications.

Information from your Google Account or other Third-Party Sign-in Service: Seesaw allows school administrators, teachers, Family Members, and students (after being invited by a teacher) to sign up for and log into our service using a Google, Clever, or other account. Teachers can also create student accounts on behalf of students in their class. When we create a Seesaw account using one of these third-party services, we use the name, profile picture, and email address (if available) provided by these services.

Log Data: When you use Seesaw, we receive log data such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, device information, and your mobile carrier. In addition, we may receive or collect additional information such as the referring web page, referring search terms, and pages visited. If you are using Seesaw as a teacher, school administrator, or Family Member, Seesaw may use your IP address to determine your approximate location for the purposes of sending you customized marketing and other information about our products.


We only use this information to provide our services to you. For example we use this information to:

  • Allow you to access and use the Service by verifying your identity and storing your Journal Content, Activities, and Messages (collectively, your “Content”).
  • Provide support to teachers, school administrators, and Family Members.
  • Provide school administrators with aggregate or de-identified information about how Seesaw is performing in their school(s).
  • If you’ve enabled notifications, notify you about activity on and updates to your account or your student’s account.
  • Research, understand, and analyze user trends to improve and develop new features for our products.
  • Promote enhancements to Seesaw relevant for teachers, schools, and families.
  • Investigate, prevent, and detect activities on our service that we believe may violate the law, applicable regulations, or Seesaw policies. We may, at the request of a school, investigate accounts to determine whether they comply with school policies.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights.. If would like to exercise any of your California consumer rights, please submit a request via our Help Center, email, or send a written request to Seesaw Learning, Inc., 548 Market Street, PMB 98963, San Francisco, CA 94104. You will be required to verify your identity before we fulfill your request. To do so, you will need to provide us with certain account information. You can also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. To do so, you must provide us with written authorization for the agent to act on your behalf. You will still need to verify your identity directly with us.


For purposes of the CCPA, Seesaw does not “sell” personal information, nor do we have actual knowledge of any “sale” of personal information of minors under 16 years of age.
