Beagle provides an online learning platform for educators, post-secondary students, corporations and others ("Authorized Users") that fits how human brains naturally learn - by asking questions, doing research, and building a new understanding based on those findings. The Site provides certain software tools ("Tools") that allow Authorized Users to upload, create, view, and share content on the Site ("User Generated Content"). The Site may contain message boards, chat rooms, personal web pages, profiles, forums, bulletin boards and other interactive features that enable interaction, submission, publication, display, and transmission through the Site ("User Contributions"). An Authorized User’s ability to create, use, maintain, or interact with the User Generated Content, and User Contributions ("Site Content") may be limited. Some Accounts may have limitations on Site Content and some premium features may be reserved to paid user accounts. Any such premium or paid features may have additional eligibility terms or usage requirements. The Site uses natural language processing systems that, together with a cloud-based neural network, quantify and qualify engagement, quality, understanding, focus, and efficacy ("User Metrics"). User Metrics are available for analysis on an individual basis to certain Authorized Users including, without limitation, educators ("Personal Metrics").
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act ("FERPA"); Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment ("PPRA"); state and local laws, regulations, and codes; any applicable educator rules and guidelines; and best practices (collectively "Educator Restrictions") govern the use, handling, and disclosure of certain Site Content and Personal Metrics, as well as Personally Identifiable Information and Education Records (each defined in FERPA) (together, the "Restricted Data").
