Welcome to SchoolsPortal!
Using Our Services
Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access. You may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
Our Services display some content that is not SchoolsPortal’s or SparkleCity’s. This content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available. We may review content to determine whether it is illegal or violates our policies, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our policies or the law. But that does not necessarily mean that we review content, so please don’t assume that we do.
In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications if you like.
Your SchoolsPortal Account
You will need a SchoolsPortal Account in order to use most of our services. You may create your own SchoolsPortal Account, or your SchoolsPortal Account may be assigned to you by an administrator, such as an employer from an educational institution with which you are registered as a student, a staff, or a Parent/Guardian of a student. If you are using a SchoolsPortal Account created for you by an administrator, different or additional terms may apply and your administrator may be able to access or disable your account.If you learn of any unauthorized use of your password or account, contact us immediately.
Privacy and Copyright Protection
SchoolsPortal’s privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data and protect your privacy when you use our Services. By using our Services, you agree that SchoolsPortal can use such data in accordance with our privacy policies.
Your Content in our Services
The use of our service might sometimes demand that you submit your contents on our site. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.
When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give SchoolsPortal a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for a Poetry or Essay you submit in our online competitions). Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.
Modifying and Terminating our Services
We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether.
You can stop using our Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. SparkleCity may also stop providing Services to you, or add or create new limits to our Services at any time.
We believe that you own your data and preserving your access to such data is important. If we have to discontinue a Service, when reasonably neccesary, we will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to get information out of that Service.
Our Warranties and Disclaimers
We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are certain things that we don’t promise about our Services.
