As described in detail below (in the section titled “Information Sharing”), WebABLLS allows, with the proper permissions, one user to share certain student data with another WebABLLS user. In particular, if one user (“User 1”) has another user (“User 2”)’s email address, User 1 can allow User 2 to share access to one of User 1’s student profiles. A student profile will not be shared without the permission of the user who has entered that student profile. Such sharing will only be allowed only if the User has the appropriate level of authority to allow such sharing. When a student profile is shared, the amount of information that will be made available for sharing will vary depending on the level of sharing permissions authorized but may include things such as the student’s first/last name and organization name.

Each user account is activated within the Site under a unique organization or customer account. At the onset of account activation, the administrator user (or ‘owner’) of the organization or customer account—if not otherwise designated—is automatically assigned to the name and email address submitted during the order/registration process. The administrator user(s) of an account, whether an independent (single user) or group user, assumes all authority for any/all account activity within the organization or customer account, including the activation of user accounts associated with the organization as well as the management of user account role assignments (Administrator, Standard, or Restricted Each organization or customer account must have at least one administrator user, but other associate users can also be designated as additional administrator users (each of whom shares the same level of authority within the organization or customer account).
Organization administrator users are responsible for account maintenance with regard to placing orders, creating and managing user accounts, facilitating password changes and/or resets, monitoring both user account and student profile assignments and permissions. Other responsibilities include various organization functions such as timeout settings and establishing custom student parameters.
User accounts clustered within a single customer account are considered to have provided opt-in consent for personal identification information and organization or customer account subscription or license key history to be available to user accounts registered with an Administrator or Standard user role via the Site as well as through customer support inquiries. User accounts registered with a Restricted user role do not have access to subscription or license key history.

BDS only shares personal information with other Site users in the following limited circumstances:

BDS will not review, share, distribute, or reference any Student Record except as described above in the Information Sharing – Personal Identification Information section, or as may be required by law.
Upon creation of each Student Record the Site automatically generates a unique identification number (ID#). Identification number codes associated with Student Records may be viewed or accessed only for the purpose of customer support, or account maintenance as requested by users, or suspected violation of BDS’s terms of service, or as may be required by law.
Users who are designated as the administrator of the organization or customer account, owner of a Student Record, or profile coordinator of a Student Record assumes responsibility for the authorization of sharing rights to other Site users who are registered with user accounts in the system. Authorization of sharing rights is not limited to only those user accounts within a corresponding organization or customer account. The procedure to authorize sharing rights provides the administrator, owner, and/or profile coordinator of the Student Record the option to grant customized sharing permissions using the following configurations:
Full Access with sharing rights

Without limiting the above, BDS will maintain appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality, and integrity of Student Records. BDS will not (a) modify Student Records, (b) disclose Student Records except as required by law, or as specifically requested/authorized in writing by the assigned owner or profile coordinator of the Student Record or the organization or customer account administrator, or (c) access a Student Record except to address technical problems, or upon request in connection with providing customer support.
