Privacy Policy

Last updated: March 17, 2023

This privacy notice for Bagel Institute (“Bagel Institute”, “we”, or “us”), describes how and why we might collect, store, use, and process personal data.

Bagel Institute has two types of users: “teachers,” a who have the ability to create classes, ask questions of their classes, and receive questions from the students in their class; and “students,” who have the ability to join classes, ask questions of their teachers, and receive questions from the teachers in their class to gauge their understanding of material.

How We Collect Your Information

We collect information that you voluntarily provide to us when you:

The personal information we collect may include the following:

We do not process any sensitive information (as per the GDPR Article 9), and you should not input such information into Bagel Institute. We do not rent, buy, or sell personal information.

As a user, you may create classes as a teacher or join classes as a student. When a student asks a question, answers a question, or otherwise inputs information into a class, their identity is associated with this information, regardless of the anonymity settings of the class. Depending on the anonymity settings of the class, a student’s identity may not be revealed to classmates, the teacher, or both. We make a “best effort” to anonymize student identities when the class’ settings are such, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so in all cases.

How We Process Your Information

We have implemented appropriate and reasonable technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process.

We take the security of your personal information very seriously.
