This policy explains how we collect and use your information when you use our services, website, or software.

What kinds of information do we collect?
  • Anchron ID: In order to create an Anchron ID, we ask for your name and email address. You may, but are not required to provide other information, such as a profile picture.

  • SimpleGrades: Your school district may collect some personal information; check their privacy policy for specifics. On our end, we only collect general, anonymous statistics related to app performance. The ads we show have been tagged to be COPPA compliant.

  • Other services: We may collect information such as device type, usage statistics or user habits in order to improve your experience.

We may ask you for your permission to access other types of information in the future. If you don't want to share the information requested, you can decline. When you use other Anchron Services, we may link information regarding those services to your Anchron ID.

What do we use your information for?

Anchron uses the information your provide for three purposes: to identify you, to enrich your experience using our services, and to contact you.

  • Identification: To ensure that we know who you are when you sign in to a service, we may ask you to verify your identity using your information. Additionally, when you sign up for a social service, a social media app for example, your information can be used to help others find your profile.

  • Enrichment: We may collect information such as device type, usage statistics or user habits in order to improve our products. Aside from this, we may use your data to improve your personal experience (for example, to recommend a song you might like).

  • Contact: From time to time, we might let you know about new products or experiences that we release. We also will notify you if there is important security or product information, such as a change to this policy.

Who do we share your information with?

Our login system is provided by our partners at Auth0. Auth0 helps us keep your information protected. You can read their privacy policy here. We may share your information with other trusted third parties if we deem that it will improve your user experience or better secure your account. We'll never sell your information, especially not to advertisers.

If you choose to sign up for a social service, other users may be able to see aspects of your user profile, which is made up of your name, username, and optionally a profile picture. We won't share your email with any other users. You can opt to share other information (for example, a biography) with other users.

Anchron may share other information if required by the law.


Anchron is comitted to keeping your information secure. We use up-to-date security techniques and services such as Auth0 to protect your information. If there ever is a problem, we'll notify you as soon as possible.

Children / COPPA

The majority of our products are not marketed to children under 13. If a product is intended for users under the age of 13, our services comply with COPPA.


We might revise this policy in the future. You'll be notified if there are any significant changes and you've provided us with a way to reach you.
