Customers, Users, and Visitors are collectively defined herein as “you,” or “your.” This Website is provided by School Management and Record Tracking, Inc. (“SMART”, “we,” “us,” or “our”). By using onlinesmart.net (other than to read this Website Agreement for the first time), you agree to comply with all of the terms and conditions hereof.
a. Notice to Customers and Users. This Website Agreement is referred to, and incorporated into, the General Terms and Conditions (the “GT&C”) to the Master Application Service Provider Agreement (the “MASPA”) pursuant to which we provide certain services, including this Website (referred to herein as “Hosted Services”) to you. In the event of any inconsistency between this Website Agreement, the GT&C, and the applicable MASPA, the terms of the MASPA shall govern. All other terms and conditions of this Website Agreement and the GT&C, however, shall remain in full force and effect.
Any of these changes shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by posting on onlinesmart.net, email, or a pop-up or click-through form of electronic notification, as determined by SMART in its sole discretion. Any use of the Website by you after such notice shall be deemed to constitute your acceptance of such changes.
3. Basic Privacy Statement
SMART will not license, disclose, sell or otherwise share personal information gathered on or through onlinesmart.net except as described in this Website Agreement.
4. Legal Requirements
Use and disclosure of personal information, including student records, is subject to extensive United States Federal and state regulation. You agree to comply at all times with your respective obligations, all regulations promulgated thereunder from time to time and all other applicable Federal and state laws and regulations, whether applicable to student records, other personal information, or otherwise. While SMART provides an infrastructure for efficient storage, retrieval and distribution of student information, making determinations on disclosure, sharing and distribution of information is solely your responsibility.
Access to student information and records will be strictly controlled by passwords, and in some cases authentication devices and PIN numbers, issued to you. It is your responsibility to maintain secrecy of passwords, PIN numbers and other security measures at all times to prevent unauthorized use and access.
6. Collected Information
SMART will collect from you information about you, and will moreover gather details of their usage of the Hosted Services. In addition, to manage our credit risk, it may be necessary for us to supplement the information we receive from you with information from third-party sources. For example, we may request a credit report regarding a Customer. SMART will not disclose information received about individual Customers, Users, or Visitors, or details regarding an individual Customer's, User’s, or Visitor’s usage of the Hosted Services, except as necessary to perform the Hosted Services or as otherwise provided herein. SMART may, however, disclose information regarding you, and patterns of use of the Hosted Services, on an anonymous or aggregate basis.
7. Analytics Services Provided by Others
We may allow third-party service providers, such as Google Analytics, to collect information about you and your use of our Hosted Services and visits to our website, which is then reported to us on an anonymized, aggregated basis. This information is used for analytics purposes and to help us improve our features and quality of service, and may be disclosed to others on an anonymous or aggregate basis. If you do not agree to the collection of such data by our analytics services providers, you should not use our services or visit this Website.
8. Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement Requests; Protection of Rights
We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect our rights or property.
10. Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and log information for security purposes. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. All such collected information will be available for review by our Customers to enable Customers to track usage by the various users.
Our Website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that SMART is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.
SMART takes many precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information to our Web site, we take commercially reasonable steps to protect it both online and offline. On-line we are using encryption, authentication (user names and password), and a firewall to protect our users’ data. Off-line we protect the data through both physical and operating system security. No method of electronic transmission of storage is 100% secure, however, and we cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of any information you transmit or store in the Service. We assume no liability or responsibility for disclosure of personal information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized third-party access, or other causes beyond our control.
In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with any notification procedures set forth in this Website agreement, or as otherwise required by applicable law.
13. Information Regarding Products and Services
You may occasionally receive information about products and services. We respect your privacy and generally will offer the option not to receive these types of communications.
14. Correction/Updating Certain Information
If your contact or billing information changes; or if you no longer desire our service, upon written request to the address below we will take commercially reasonable steps to correct, update, or remove the data you have provided to us.
15. Misuse and Termination
Any breach of the MASPA, or the misuse of this Website or of the Hosted Services such as by hacking, spamming, solicitations whether commercial or non-commercial, or transmission of information that is harmful, obscene, harassing, libelous or illegal, is strictly forbidden. Any such activity by any user, or any other violation of this Website Agreement, the GT&C, or the MASPA may, in SMART's discretion, result in termination of Hosted Services by SMART to you without notice, and entitle SMART to all other remedies available under applicable law. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, termination or such other remedies may also result if SMART has reason to believe that you are not in compliance with laws governing privacy or disclosure of personal information.
16. Children’s Privacy.
We do not direct our sites to children under the age of thirteen. We require users to be at least eighteen years old. If we learn that a user is under eighteen years of age, we will promptly delete any personal information that the individual has provided to us.
17. Your California Privacy Rights (As Provided by California Civil Code Section 1798.83)
A California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (a “California Customer”) may request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, subject to certain exceptions. In general, again, subject to certain exceptions, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal information, upon receipt of a request by a California Customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom it disclosed personal information in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal information that was disclosed. One of the exceptions allows us to provide California Customers a cost-free means to opt out of these disclosures instead of providing such list. California Customers may request to opt out of these disclosures by contacting us as described below. California Customers may also request further information about our compliance with this law by contacting us at our address below.
18. DMCA Policy
Our DMCA Policy is currently set forth at the following link: DCMA Policy. The link itself is subject to change, but our DMCA will be available and accessible on SMART’s public website.

This Website Agreement, the GT&C, and, as applicable, the MASPA (collectively the “Agreement”), constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all previous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to such subject matter. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Arizona, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. The parties agree to jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts located in Maricopa County, Arizona. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.
You must file any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Website, the Hosted Services, this Website Agreement, or the Agreement as defined in the preceding paragraph, within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, regardless of any statute or law to the contrary.
If any provision of this Website Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Website Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
No waiver of any sections of the terms herein shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
The section titles in this Website Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.

Please note that you may be liable for damages, including court costs and attorney's fees, if you materially misrepresent that content on the Service is copyright infringing.
Upon receiving a proper notification of alleged copyright infringement, we will remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material and promptly notify the alleged infringer of your claim. We also will advise the alleged infringer of the DMCA statutory counter-notification procedure described below by which the alleged infringer may respond to your claim and request that we restore this material.
Please note that our furnishing your claim to the alleged infringer will include the personal information you provide in your notification, which the alleged infringer may use to contact you directly. As such, by submitting a notification of alleged copyright infringement, you consent to disclosure of your information in the aforementioned manner.
If you believe your copyrighted material has been removed from the Service as a result of a mistake or misidentification, you may submit a written counter-notification letter to us. To be an effective counter-notification under the DMCA, your letter must include substantially the following:
- Identification of the material that has been removed or disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- All of the following statements:
- "I consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court in which my address is located, or if my address is outside the United States, the judicial district in which School Management and Record Tracking, Inc. is located."
- "I will accept service of process from the party that filed the notification of alleged copyright infringement or the party's agent."
