Hi, Before my local technology administrator will deploy SketchUp for Schools over our G-Suite platform, we need to recieve a signed Student Data Privacy agreement from SketchUp. Who do I contact in order to obatin this document. Thanks!

@mlmclaughlin Thanks for your note. SketchUp is dedicated to transparency in regards to how we are keeping our customer’s data private and secure. For complete details regarding the privacy policies of the various free and paid SketchUp products, please see the following privacy notice: https://www.sketchup.com/privacy-notice

SketchUp Pro validates the software license at the time of installation, and collects activation details when the product starts up. The activation details provide anonymized information regarding the environment the application is running in. Specifically, we capture the following:

Globally unique user ID - Completely anonymous
License state - Trial vs Purchased
Basic product information - version, operating environment, language, and OpenGL version

SketchUp for Schools, which is integrated with G Suite for Education, complies with all federal regulations defined in COPPA and does not capture any personally identifiable information (PII).

Unfortunately our legal team is unable to make exceptions to the terms of our privacy policy and we are unable to sign 3rd party privacy agreements.

I am having the same issue with my school district.

Seems like you’ll be able to blame your legal team for making your application completely unusable for public schools!

It’s not a very big demographic, so I wouldn’t worry too much about disqualifying numerous school districts across the country…

Unfortunately our legal team is unwilling to make exceptions either, which means an entire generation of children will be unable to use your excellent product.

Shame about the poor leadership. I guess that TinkerCAD will now be what kids think of when they hear “CAD”.
