The amount and type of information we gather depends upon your use of the Websites and Products and, in some cases, what type of information you choose to disclose. We may collect the following information from you:
Creating an Account
We collect information from you when you register with Nimbus Web to create an online account and/or when you submit your personal information to us over the Websites or through the Products. You will always be aware when you are providing such information because you will be required to type it in or otherwise submit it yourself. Such personal information may include your name, email and postal addresses, phone number, payment and billing information, Product purchased, and other information which you voluntarily provide to us.
All student data remains the property of the educational institution.

From time to time, whether now or in the future, the Website and Products, in order to provide you our services, may contain features that permit you to upload, post, transmit, display, perform or distribute content, media, or other information you choose to disclose. Any information that you choose to disclose by means of such features may become public information. You should take caution when deciding to disclose your personal information by means of such features, such as posting a comment.

Nimbus Web, and the Third-Party vendors we use to store your information, employ security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.

Access to the Websites and our API is made through HTTPS protocol and SSL encryption. We also use end-to-end encryption. Users encrypt their data with their password and encryption certificate, and Nimbus Web is unable to decrypt it without the corresponding password.
In addition to these technical measures, Nimbus takes internal measures, including background checks and security training of those that have access to personal data.

In the unlikely event that we go out of business, or file for bankruptcy, we will protect your personal information, and will not sell it to any third-party.
