Information We Collect
Account Information: When establishing an account with our Service, you may provide us with personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”). Personal information is information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular natural person or household. Personal Information that we collect may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, institution, course name(s), course content, and student roster(s).
Unicycle is a Google-verified app built atop the Gmail API. When you securely ‘Sign in with Google’, we request two sets of permissions:
- Read permissions for ‘Other Contacts’: this is so you can easily search for contacts by name or email.
- Read / write permissions for your email: this is so we can perform the functions you want us to, e.g. send, receive, delete.
The only data we receive and store from Google are your user ID, name, and the email address you sign up with. Your Google user data (e.g. birthday, gender, other settings), contacts, emails, and email contents are never accessed or stored by Unicycle.
ID Tokens: When you sign in to the Service, we collect an encrypted ID token from Google to facilitate login. This token never hits Unicycle’s servers, and Unicycle will never store this token.
Usage Data: We may also collect other information regarding your activity during your use of the Service including, but not limited to, device data, browser type, session duration, time between sessions, actions taken, sign in time, sign out time (collectively, “Usage Information”).
Location Data: We collect your IP address and infer location information such as city or postal code from your IP address, as needed, in order to provide the Services or send you communications.
Browser Data: When you use the Service, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Service. This information may include, but is not limited to, your computer’s Internet Protocol address (IP address) or other identifier, your general location, browser type, the web page you were visiting before you came to the Service, and in-bound tracking, namely, the source (ad, social media channel or blog, search engine) or website you were visiting before visiting the Service.
Email Information: We collect and store information about emails you send and receive through the Service, including but not limited to numeric identifiers and timestamps. We do not store the contents of your emails or any information that could identify the sender, the recipient, or the subject of the email. This is handled locally between your computer and Google.
Customer Service: We may also collect Personal Information or other information regarding feedback, questions, or information you provide when interacting with our Care Team. Your conversations with our Care Team may be recorded and monitored to improve our service, troubleshoot, protect against errors, and resolve your questions or improve our Service.
Cookies & Tracking Technologies
A cookie is a small data file sent from a website to your browser that is stored on your computer's hard drive. Unicycle may use our own cookies for a number of purposes, including to access your information when you sign in, keep track of preferences you specify, display the most appropriate content based on your interests and activity, estimate and report Unicycle's total audience size and traffic, and conduct research to improve our content and services. You may be able to change browser settings to reject cookies when you access the Service through a web browser. The steps to do this vary depending on the browser used, but generally can be found by using the “Help” feature available on your browser. If you disable cookies, any personalized features will be disabled. We currently do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
Unicycle also partners with third-party services who use various tracking technologies, such as browser cookies, to provide certain services or features. These technologies allow our partners to recognize your computer each time you visit Unicycle. Unicycle does not have access or control over these third-party technologies, and they are not covered by our privacy statement.
Unicycle uses the consent management platform (CMP) Osano to document and manage your consent choices. If you provide consent to the processing of your personal information, Osano will place the applicable first- and third-party cookies on your browser. If you do not give consent to cookie tracking, the cookies will not be placed on your browser. If you provide consent, but later withdraw your consent, Osano will not remove the cookie from your browser, since already-placed cookies may persist until their expiration date (the expiry can be found in your consent manager), but Osano does block the associated script so the cookie data is no longer passed to its vendor.
If you withdraw consent and no longer want to see persisting cookies in your browser, you should clear your browsing history. Click here to view a list of our current cookies.
Google API Disclosure

Subprocessors of Personal Information
We engage third-party subprocessors to help us provide services to our customers. A subprocessor is a third-party entity engaged by Unicycle, who receives data from Unicycle and processes personal information on behalf of our customers.
The Services contains links to third party websites, including social networking websites. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement or representation of an affiliation with that website. We do not control third party websites or their privacy practices. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit.

Accessing, Editing, Exporting, and Deleting Data: You may send an email to email@example.com to request your Personal Information in a common file format, or to change or delete your Personal Information.

Unicycle must cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. In the event of a claim and/or legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Unicycle or a third-party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any activity we may consider to pose a risk of being illegal, unethical, inappropriate or legally actionable, we reserve the right to disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we in our sole discretion find necessary or appropriate.
Unicycle follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and after receipt of the information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.

We retain your Personal Information for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes described in this Policy. We shall not keep your Personal Information for more than 3 years after your account becomes inactive.
