Content Privacy & Data security
If you are using School Announcements with spreadsheets that have not been shared publicly, users will be asked to grant access to the spreadsheet to our app before we can display the data. This follows the security rules required by Google. Note that the data from your spreadsheet is never transferred out of the Google Sheets to an external database.
When a user opens a School Announcements view:
- School Announcements fetches the unique Spreadsheet ID and URL in the view settings
- The user’s browser, with the user’s Google account, calls the spreadsheet data, then School Announcements formats and displays it.
- The spreadsheet’s data never passes through our servers.
School Announcements does not have the authorization to edit the access rights of the file in Google Drive. The creator of the view and the spreadsheet is the only person who can set the data access rights, by sharing the spreadsheet with the right people.
Access rights to the user’s spreadsheets are required to allow actions performed by the end user, and in no case are the textual contents of users’ spreadsheets transmitted to any 3rd party services outside of the user’s direct control or knowledge.
All personally identifiable data that users may keep in files associated with this tool remains in the complete control of those users from a privacy perspective. Unless specifically stated, we store no personally identifiable information in any 3rd party database or file repository.
THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. FAST ADMIN MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT (I) THE SERVICE IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS; (II) THE SERVICE WILL BE ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INTERRUPTIONS THAT OCCUR IN THE CONTEXT OF REGULARLY SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE); (III) ANY INFORMATION OR ADVICE OBTAINED BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE WILL BE ACCURATE OR COMPLETE; OR (IV) THE RESULTS OF USING THE SERVICE WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW EXCLUSION OF AN IMPLIED WARRANTY, SO THIS DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY TO CUSTOMER.
Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL FAST ADMIN BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR OTHER LOSS OR DAMAGE WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER FAILURE, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION), ARISING OUT OF OR CAUSED BY YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE, EVEN IF FAST ADMIN HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY DISPUTE WITH FAST ADMIN RELATED TO ANY OF THE SERVICE SHALL BE TERMINATION OF SUCH SERVICE. IN NO EVENT SHALL FAST ADMIN’S ENTIRE LIABILITY TO YOU IN RESPECT OF ANY SERVICE, WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT, EXCEED THE FEES PAID BY YOU TOWARDS SUCH SERVICE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS IN THIS PARAGRAPH MAY NOT APPLY TO CUSTOMER.
These Terms, their interpretation, performance or any breach thereof, will be construed in accordance with, and all questions with respect thereto will be determined by, the laws of the United States of America. Both parties hereby irrevocably submit any disputes under these Terms to the jurisdiction of the courts located in the United States of America.
