Respondus Monitor - Student Terms of Use

These Terms of Use ("Terms"), which incorporate the Respondus Help Center Terms of Use ("Help Center Terms") included at the end of these Terms, are an agreement between you and Respondus, Inc. ("Respondus"), and between you and your learning institution, or your school ("your Institution"), regarding your use of Respondus Monitor®. By using Respondus Monitor, you agree to these Terms in full and that you are age 14 or older, or age 16 or older in the EEA.

Respondus Monitor is a cloud-based service ("Respondus Monitor Services") and software ("Respondus Monitor Software") (also collectively referred to in these Terms as "Respondus Monitor"), that work together to provide an online interactive database of video, audio, and other data captured during student assessment sessions for use in monitoring students.

The Respondus Help Center is a group of services ("Help Services") provided by Respondus, Inc. that enable users of LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor to troubleshoot technical issues. The Help Services include, for example, a webcam check, system check, the ability to report an issue to Respondus, and links to a knowledge base and technical support.

REQUIREMENTS OF YOUR INSTITUTION (e.g., your school)

As part of an effort to use available technology to improve your learning experience by providing convenience, security, and cost-effective education, your Institution is requiring students to use Respondus Monitor for certain, or all, courses. In order to use Respondus Monitor, you must agree to these Terms in full, including this section under REQUIREMENTS OF YOUR INSTITUTION, regarding your relationship with your Institution.

HOW "RESPONDUS MONITOR" WILL BE USED. The use of Respondus Monitor will require individual student activity to be recorded, both audibly and visually, during certain assessment sessions. Other data related to individual student activity during assessment sessions may also be recorded by Respondus Monitor, such as, for example, without limitation, time taken by a student to answer specific inquiries on an assessment, etc. The recordings are controlled by your Institution and will be processed by an agent of your Institution, namely, Respondus, through its Respondus Monitor Services. Respondus Monitor may analyze the recordings through automated processes to generate additional data derived from the recordings, with the additional data being associated with individual students for use by your Institution in evaluating the recordings. The additional data, as well as the original recordings, may be evaluated by agents of your Institution, including your instructors, to review, assess, and analyze student performance and conduct, among other things, for the purpose of improving educational processes for students, including investigating student conduct violations. Your Institution works with Respondus to help ensure your privacy regarding the recordings and to comply with federal regulations as to any information or data (including any of the video or audio recordings). See the sections below "PRIVACY" and "PRIVACY AND SECURITY POLICY". The complete Respondus Privacy Policy is available at www.respondus.com/privacy, and we recommend that you review it carefully, particularly if you reside in the European Economic Area.

ACTIVITY GENERAL. You are responsible for your conduct and activities arising during use of Respondus Monitor and for any information or data you provide to or through Respondus Monitor. Your Institution is not responsible for, nor liable for, any mistakes, inaccuracies, lack of usefulness, defamation, omissions, falsehood, obscenity or otherwise offensive material in any of the information or data provided to Respondus Monitor by users. You also understand that your Institution does not, and has no obligation to, monitor, pre-screen nor pre-approve information or data, but that your Institution shall nonetheless have the right (but not the obligation) in its sole discretion, to refuse, delete or move any information or data that is available via Respondus Monitor, for any reason, including a violation of any of these Terms.

WARRANTIES YOU PROVIDE TO YOUR INSTITUTION. You warrant and represent to your Institution that you are not infringing the intellectual property rights of others whenever you provide information or data on or through Respondus Monitor. You also agree that your Institution is not responsible for protecting any intellectual property rights you, or another party, may assert in any information or data you provide to Respondus Monitor.

OPT-OUT. If you cease to agree with these Terms, or the privacy and security policy below at some point in the future, you may opt-out by contacting your Institution. However, opting-out may affect how you will need to complete your course, and your Institution makes no representations regarding how it will affect your relevant course. As such, we encourage you to speak with your instructor before opting out.

DISCLAIMERS. Your Institution disclaims responsibility or liability for the accuracy, content, completeness, legality, reliability, operability or availability of information or data in the Respondus Monitor Service or Software. Your Institution further disclaims any responsibility for the deletion, failure to store, misdelivery, or untimely delivery of any information or data. Your Institution disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from downloading or accessing any information or data through Respondus Monitor. You will bear all risk associated with any information or data you access. Your access or use of any information or data provided by Respondus Monitor or third parties is conditioned on your agreement to these Terms including these disclaimer provisions. Further disclaimers applicable to your relationship with your Institution, as well as with Respondus, are set forth below in the DISCLAIMER section under REQUIREMENTS OF RESPONDUS AND LICENSE PROVIDED BY RESPONDUS.

PRIVACY. The section below entitled PRIVACY & SECURITY POLICY, in conjunction with the full Respondus Privacy Policy available at www.respondus.com/privacy, shall govern the privacy policy with respect to Respondus Monitor. You agree with all reservations of right(s), disclaimers of liability, promises, and acknowledgements governing your relationship with Respondus under the PRIVACY & SECURITY POLICY and the full Respondus Privacy Policy available at www.respondus.com/privacy. As controller of the data, your Institution reserves the right at all times to disclose any information or data (including recordings and any content to the extent applicable) pertaining to you or any other user, as necessary, to comply with the law, a regulation or a governmental request.

MISCELLANEOUS. All legal issues arising from or related to the use of Respondus Monitor between you and your Institution shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the state in which your Institution resides, or if your Institution resides in more than one state, the state in which you attend your Institution, or the state in which the branch of your Institution resides with which you correspond. By using Respondus Monitor and thus agreeing to these Terms, you consent to personal jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts located in and serving the county in which your Institution resides, or if your Institution resides in more than one county, the county in which you attend your Institution, or the county in which the branch of your Institution resides with which you correspond. Your Institution may terminate your use of Respondus Monitor if you violate these Terms, and will terminate your use if you use Respondus Monitor to repeatedly infringe on the intellectual property rights of others. If your Institution should fail to enforce any right or provision in these Terms, this failure shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision or of any other rights or provisions in these Terms. If a court should find that one or more rights or provisions set forth in these Terms are invalid, you agree that the remainder of the right or provisions shall be enforceable and that, to the extent permitted by law, the court shall give effect to the parties' intentions, as reflected in any such right or provision that has been declared invalid or unenforceable. If you do not agree to the Terms, you will not be permitted to use Respondus Monitor. Any term that would naturally survive termination of these Terms shall survive, such as, for example, the disclaimers, and any warranties you provide herein, and this miscellaneous section.

Your Institution may terminate your access to Respondus Monitor at any time, if there is a violation of these Terms.


LICENSE REQUIREMENTS PROVIDED BY RESPONDUS

To the extent any terms below conflict with any terms under the REQUIREMENTS OF YOUR INSTITUTION above, the terms above shall govern with respect to your relationship with your Institution and the terms below shall govern with respect to your relationship with Respondus.

In addition, you acknowledge and understand that certain actions set forth in these Terms, which may be taken by Respondus (as outlined below), shall be taken at the direction of your Institution with Respondus acting as an agent of your Institution.

LICENSE GRANT AND ONLINE USE. If you accept these Terms and pay the required license fees to Respondus (if required by Respondus, at its discretion, as set forth below in the Section entitled FEES), you are granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable license to use Respondus Monitor subject to the conditions of these Terms. You may not modify, distribute, sell, or sublicense any part of Respondus Monitor. You may not reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of Respondus Monitor, unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you have written permission from Respondus. Respondus Monitor is licensed to you, not sold or transferred to you. You agree that you may not use Respondus Monitor in any way that conflicts with or violates these Terms or other agreements between you and any third-party, including that of your Institution's learning management system ("LMS") through which you are accessing the Respondus Monitor Services.

FEES. The license grant to use Respondus Monitor is separate from the license grant to use Respondus LockDown Browser. If you are initiating Respondus Monitor for demonstration purposes, you will not be charged. Also, Respondus may grant you a temporary license free-of-charge to use Respondus Monitor, at its sole discretion (such as, for example, for beta testing or pilot program purposes), but such free license grant may be terminated at any time by Respondus at its sole discretion.

PRIVACY & SECURITY POLICY. Respondus cares about your privacy and the security of your personal data. The Respondus Privacy Policy is available at www.respondus.com/privacy, and we recommend that you review it carefully, particularly if you reside in the European Economic Area. The information below summarizes important aspects of the security used with Respondus Monitor and how we process your personal data. Together with your Institution, the controller of the data, we work to protect the online privacy of those who use Respondus Monitor.

Respondus Monitor uses the following methods to limit access to personal information or data (e.g., student recordings or other personal information).

  1. Respondus Monitor uses industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Lay) or TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption to transfer information.
  2. Student identifiable information including name, grade, course name, and photos that show identification cards can only be accessed through the learning management system's (LMS's) extension architecture (e.g., Blackboard Building Block).
  3. Only users with instructor credentials for the LMS course (e.g., instructors, teaching assistants, LMS administrators) are able to view video sessions in conjunction with student identifiable information.
  4. Video URLs are "one-time use" and will not function if copied. Respondus uses independent, third-party security firms to perform "penetration testing" of the Respondus Monitor system. This includes a review of the Respondus Monitor architecture and the testing for vulnerabilities and exploits.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, and Respondus does not warrant the security of any information collected using its services. By agreeing to these Terms, you agree to use Respondus Monitor at your own risk, and agree that Respondus shall not be liable if a security breach occurs, if the site malfunctions, or if information is misused or mismanaged in any way to your detriment or the detriment of a student or third party, whether by Respondus, your institution, or an unauthorized third party.

The use of Respondus Monitor will require individual student activity to be recorded, both audibly and visually, during certain assessment sessions. Other data related to individual student activity during assessment sessions may also be recorded by Respondus Monitor, such as, for example, without limitation, time taken by a student to answer specific inquiries on an assessment, etc. The recordings may be stored by Respondus, through its Respondus Monitor Services. Respondus Monitor may analyze the recordings through automated processes to generate additional data derived from the recordings, with the additional data being associated with individual students for use by your Institution in evaluating the recordings. The original recordings and data (as referenced above) may be evaluated by agents of your Institution, including your instructors, to review, assess, and analyze student performance and conduct, among other things. The data and recordings may also be used for investigating student conduct violations. Respondus personnel do not review/analyze the recordings except as may be required to resolve technical problems, improve system performance, modify Respondus Monitor, investigate violations of these Terms, or as may be directed by your Institution.

Each student that is recorded will have a unique username or identification code ("ID") and password through the Institution's (or learning institution's) LMS. The ID and password will be usable by students, at the discretion of the Institution, to allow students to transmit recordings and data to the online component of Respondus Monitor if required by Institution as part of an assessment activity. Instructors, administrators and other agents of Institution, may access those recordings and data related to their students through Respondus Monitor. You must guard your password and not share it with anyone to help ensure your security and privacy.

Random samples of video and/or audio recordings may be collected via Respondus Monitor and used by Respondus to improve the Respondus Monitor capabilities for institutions and students. The recordings may be shared with researchers (research institutions and/or biometric experts) under contract with Respondus to assist in such research, and the researchers are under written obligation to maintain the video and/or audio recordings in confidence and under terms at least as strict as the terms herein. No personally identifiable information for students is provided with the video and/or audio recordings to researchers, such as the student's name, course name, institution, grades, or student identification photos submitted as part of the Respondus Monitor exam session. Other than the research purposes identified above, Respondus will not share recordings or personally identifying information of any particular student (collectively also referred to herein as "personal information or data") with third parties (third parties do not include the student who provided the personal information, the parent/guardian of a student under the age of 18 who provided personal information, or the institution who authorized access by the student to Respondus Monitor Services) unless specifically required by Institution. For example, if Institution uses third parties to manage student personal information (e.g., Institution agents), the Institution may direct Respondus to share the personal information with that third party under the Institution's direction and control.

If, in the future, Respondus, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, the maintenance of all collected personal information or data (including any recordings) may be transferred to the acquiring party, provided that the acquiring party implement a privacy and security policy at least as restrictive as this one, or otherwise compliant with current legal standards, and provided that the collected personal information and data remain under the control of your Institution.

Respondus reserves the right at all times to disclose any information or data (including recordings and any content to the extent applicable) stored by you, your Institution, or any other user as necessary, to comply with the law, a regulation or a governmental request, or to edit or remove any information or data, in whole or in part, that in Respondus' sole discretion, is in violation of these Terms.

Respondus Help Center Terms of Use ("Help Center Terms")

The Respondus Help Center is a group of services ("Help Services") provided by Respondus, Inc. ("Respondus") that enable users of LockDown Browser® and Respondus Monitor® to troubleshoot technical issues. The Help Services include, for example, a webcam check, system check, the ability to report an issue to Respondus, and links to a knowledge base and technical support.

Accepting the Terms

In order to use the Help Services, you must first agree to the terms ("Help Center Terms") as outlined herein. You may not use the Help Services if you do not accept the Help Center Terms. You can accept the Help Center Terms by: (A) clicking to accept or agree to the Help Center Terms, where this option is made available to you by Respondus in the user interface of the Help Services or other Respondus services; or (B) by otherwise using the Help Services. In any case, you understand and agree that Respondus will treat your use of the Help Services as acceptance of the Help Center Terms.

Data Collection

Respondus collects data to operate effectively and to strive to provide you with the best experience with LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you contact us for support. Some data is obtained by recording how you interact with LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor by, for example, receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device. The data we collect depends on the features you use within the Help Services, and includes the following:

Webcam & Microphone Check. The webcam and microphone check streams video and audio from your webcam to the Respondus servers. The video and audio can then be played back by you to ensure the webcam and microphone are working properly. The video and audio recorded during the webcam and microphone check is stored in temporary cache on the Respondus server and is automatically deleted in about an hour. Persistent storage is not used for these recordings, and Respondus does not provide a way to electronically identify the recordings as being transmitted from a specific user.

System Check. The System Check gathers certain information from your computing device, the networking environment, the institution's Learning Management System, and the Respondus Monitor server itself.

All data gathered during the System Check is presented to you on your screen, including a unique System Check ID. The System Check does NOT contain username, user ID, or the password used to access the institution's Learning Management System.

You have the option to send System Check results by email, and if so, you must enter an email address for the recipient of the email message. If the System Check results are sent by email, log files from software of LockDown Browser are additionally transmitted to a Respondus server. Log files contain details of the interaction between the LockDown Browser and/or Respondus Monitor and your institution's Learning Management System, from the time you log into the Learning Management System using LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor until the session is exited or terminated. Log files are stored locally on your computer in an encrypted format and, if transmitted to Respondus, are sent in encrypted format over HTTPS. Log files do NOT contain user name, user ID, or the password used to access the institution's Learning Management System.

System Check data and log files may be sent to a Respondus web server or a third party cloud server for storage and further processing by Respondus. Respondus may use System Check data and log files to assist you with a technical issue. Respondus may also aggregate and analyze the System Check data to, for example, improve the Software or its technical support services. System Check data and log files aren't sold, distributed, or made available to affiliate or third party businesses. Report An Issue. The Report An Issue feature enables you to provide feedback to Respondus about LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor. System Check data and log files, as described above, are collected by Respondus during this process. You are informed of this transfer of data each time the Report An Issue feature is used. You may choose, but you are not required, to provide an email address and contact information when using this feature. System Check data, log files, contact information, and feedback you provide may be sent to a Respondus web server or third party cloud server for storage and further processing by Respondus. No data transmitted to Respondus from the Report An Issue feature will be sold, distributed, or made available to affiliate or third party businesses.

Knowledge Base. A link to a knowledge base is included with the Help Services. No individual data is collected by Respondus during the use of the knowledge base, although Respondus may analyze aggregated usage data of the knowledge base to improve the service.

Technical Support. The Help Services contains a link that enables users to open a support ticket with Respondus. The System Check ID for the most recent System Check is automatically populated in the form used to create a support ticket. You must additionally enter your name and a valid email address through which communication with the Respondus support team will occur. Throughout the support process, you may, at your own discretion, provide personally identifiable information that will be used by the Respondus support team to analyze the issue and communicate with you. All communication between you and the Respondus team is stored on a Respondus web server, and may be used by Respondus to improve LockDown Browser and/or Respondus Monitor.

Express Incorporation. All conditions set forth in the Respondus Monitor Terms of Use, including the RESPONDUS PRIVACY POLICY at www.respondus.com/privacy, and the sections PRIVACY & SECURITY POLICY, USER CONDUCT, RESPONDUS USERNAME/ID AND PASSWORD POLICY, ACTIVITY GENERAL, CHANGES, WARRANTIES YOU PROVIDE, OPT-OUT, DISCLAIMERS, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, and MISCELLANEOUS are expressly included in these Help Center Terms to the extent applicable. Respondus will not use data collected via the Help Services in any way that conflicts with the Respondus Monitor Terms of Use. You also expressly agree not to use the Help Services in any way that conflicts with any of the Respondus Monitor Terms of Use, including, for example, the prohibitions set forth in the USER CONDUCT section. Respondus cannot make representations regarding the security of information you transmit through a third party email service provider while using the Help Services; however, to the extent Respondus stores any such information, the storage of such information by Respondus will be compliant with the PRIVACY & SECURITY POLICY and the RESPONDUS PRIVACY POLICY at www.respondus.com/privacy.
