1. We Take Privacy Seriously
Mizzen is a project of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, operated through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Mott Afterschool App, LLC. With its long commitment to providing opportunities and safe spaces for children and youth to learn and grow, the Foundation has become a champion of afterschool and summer learning programs — and the Mizzen app is its next major step.
Having been deeply entrenched in the Education sector for over 90 years, we understand our responsibility to both support the effective use of student information and safeguard student privacy and information security.
The primary users of the Mizzen application will be teachers, volunteers, program staff, and other adult supervisors and front-line providers within the Afterschool focused organizations and programs. Students will NOT and do not have access to the Mizzen application.
2. Collection of Personal Information
2.1 Information Provided to Us
The Mizzen application collects personal information to provide users with the product and/or service requested, in this case certain class management functions such as attendance taking.
- User Registration and Profile Information: We collect information about you when you create an account for use of the Mizzen application, which may include your name, title, email address, organization affiliation, state, username and password (stored as cryptographic hashes). We may also receive personal information from your organization, which may include name, title, email address, and organization affiliation, to create a user account for you.
- Creating an Organization: We collect information during the application sign-up process to gather information about the Afterschool organization who will be utilizing the application. This information may include the organization name, state, city, program size, annual budget, organization type and notes.
- Creating a Group: The Mizzen application organizes students into groups. A group contains the number of students in a class and certain demographic characteristics of such students. The information collected is also focused on logistical information used to manage each group, which may include group name, school, age range, start date and end date, and start time and end time. No personally identifiable information is collected from students as part of the group creation process.
- Taking Attendance: Users of the Mizzen application will take attendance during each session the group meets by counting the aggregate number of students present in class that day.
- Aggregated Data Reporting: Anonymized, aggregated data will be used to create reports for Mott Foundation staff as well as content providers to get a better sense of how programs and curriculums are performing.

We have internal policies and processes directed towards limiting access to personal information to our employees, contractors, and agents who need to know.
