LoopMe System Privacy Policy

When you use LoopMe, you trust us with your information. This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it.

Privacy Policy

Last changed: October 27, 2020

There are many different ways you can use the LoopMe system. For example, you may be asked by your teacher / leader to document your individual learning / development process, communicate with your teacher / leader about your learning and maybe even with an external tutor. It may also be that you and your colleagues will document different learning experiences or workings within a project group.

Information we collect

If you have registered a personal LoopMe account, you have the right to get information about what information we have saved about you. You also have the right to get any incorrect information corrected or request to be deleted.

The “data controller” for your account is in most cases the organization (for example, your school / municipality or employer) who has decided that you will use LoopMe. Me Analytics AB has signed an Personal data assistant agreement with several municipalities in Sweden.

For questions regarding handling / correction of your personal information or if you wish to request an extract of your personal information, please contact info@meanalytics.se.

Information you provide

When you sign up for a LoopMe account, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name and email address. If you like, you can also upload a personal profile image associated with your account.

You can choose to use LoopMe by logging in with a Google Account.In these cases, we will automatically use your username and insert the profile image you use through your Google Account. Once you use LoopMe, we will collect the following information associated with your personal LoopMe account:

  • Link between your LoopMe account and the organization(s) in which you are a member of (within the LoopMe system)
  • Completed tasks
  • Used tags
  • Selected emotional icons
  • Free text that you have written
  • Comments that you have written
  • Files / Images that you have attached to your loops

The purpose of the data collected through LoopMe is to plan, clarify requirements, follow and support individuals (students / employees) learning or work – not to assess / rate it. Data constitutes, first and foremost, a formative dialogue between the teacher / leader and his / her students / co-workers and can serve as one of several assessment bases for the overall image of each individual’s learning process or development.

Who is entitled to access the information in LoopMe?

  • The loops you send within the system are only available through your personal login and through the teacher / leader’s/tutor’s login that you are reporting to.
  • If the free text you enter in a loop contains information that your teacher is required to report to others, such as data on abusive treatment, punishable documents or information to be reported to the social services, the rules and practices applied at the school / your organization to report this further.
  • Every user that sends loops (students / co-workers) is encouraged to continuously report activities, thoughts and feelings related to teaching or a development process. The time and number of loops made are up to each individual to choose.
  • When a user sends a “free loop”, the user can choose to be anonymous. The teacher / leader may still be able to deduce a free loop to an individual student / student / co-worker by the teacher / leader can recognize the individual’s way of writing within the free text field, and whether the individual has attached a file or image that reveals the individual’s identity.
  • The recipient of a “free loop” can always start a comment thread and give a direct response back to the individual who has sent the loop.

How long will data in LoopMe be saved?

All data in the LoopMe system is saved with personal connection as long as the respective teacher / school / municipality considers it necessary to keep it. Each group owner has the opportunity to request information at any time.
