User datapolicy

Academic progress India Services, including Academicprogress Sign-In, are part of an authentication and authorization framework that gives you, the developer, the ability to connect directly with Academicprogress users when you would like to request access to Academicprogress user data. The policy below, as well as the Academicprogress APIs Terms of Service, govern the use of Academicprogress API Services when you request access to Academicprogress user data. Please check back from time to time as these policies are occasionally updated.

Accurately represent your identity and intent

If you wish to access Academicprogress user data you must provide Academicprogress users and Academicprogress with clear and accurate information regarding your use of Academicprogress API Services. This includes, without limitation, requirements to accurately represent:

  • Who is requesting Academicprogress user data? All permission requests must accurately represent the identity of the application that seeks access to user data. If you have obtained authorized client credentials to access Academicprogress API Services, keep these credentials confidential.
  • What data are you requesting? You must provide clear and accurate information explaining the types of data being requested. In addition, if you plan to access or use a type of user data that was not originally disclosed in your privacy policy when a Academicprogress user initially authorized access, you must update your privacy policy and prompt the user to consent to any changes before you may access that data.
  • Why are you requesting Academicprogress user data? Be honest and transparent with users when you explain the purpose for which your application requests user data. If your application requests data for one reason but the data will also be utilized for a secondary purpose, you must notify Academicprogress users of both use cases. As a general matter, users should be able to readily understand the value of providing the data that your application requests, as well as the consequences of sharing that data with your application.

  • Be transparent about the data you access with clear and prominent privacy disclosures

    You must publish a privacy policy that fully documents how your application interacts with user data. You must list the privacy policy URL in your OAuth client configuration when your application is made available to the public.

    Your Privacy Policy and all in-product privacy notifications should be accurate, comprehensive, and easily accessible. Your privacy policy and in-product privacy notifications must thoroughly disclose the manner in which your application accesses, uses, stores, or shares Academicprogress user data. Your use of Academicprogress user data must be limited to the practices explicitly disclosed in your published privacy policy, but you should consider the use of additional in-product notifications to ensure that users understand how your application will handle user data. If you change the way your application uses Academicprogress user data, you must notify users and prompt them to consent to an updated privacy policy before you make use of Academicprogress user data in a new way or for a different purpose that originally disclosed.

    Disclosures about data use should be prominent and timely. Your privacy policy and any in-product notifications regarding data use should be prominently displayed in your application interface so that users can find this information easily. Where possible, disclosures about data use should be timely and shown in context.

    Request relevant permissions

    Permission requests should make sense to users, and should be limited to the critical information necessary to implement your application.

    Don't request access to information that you don't need. You may only request access to the Academicprogress user data that is necessary to implement existing features or services in your application. Don't attempt to "future proof" your access to user data by requesting access to information that might benefit services or features that have not yet been implemented.

    Request permissions in context where possible. Request access to user data in context (via incremental auth) whenever you can, so that users understand why you need the data.

    Deceptive or unauthorized use of Academicprogress API Services is prohibited

    You are strictly prohibited from engaging in any activity that may deceive users or Academicprogress about your use of Academicprogress API Services. This includes without limitation the following requirements:

    Do not misrepresent what data is collected or what you do with Academicprogress user data. Be up front with users so that they can make an informed decision to grant authorization. You must disclose all user data that you access, use, store, delete, or share, as well as any actions you take on a user's behalf.

    You are not permitted to access, aggregate, or analyze Academicprogress user data if the data will be displayed, sold, or otherwise distributed to a third party conducting surveillance.

    Overall there should be no surprises for Academicprogress users: hidden features, services, or actions that are inconsistent with the marketed purpose of your application may lead Academicprogress to suspend your ability to access Academicprogress API Services.

    Do not mislead Academicprogress about an application's operating environment. You must accurately represent the environment in which the authentication page appears. For example, don't claim to be an Android application in the user agent header if your application is running on iOS, or represent that your application's authentication page is rendered in a desktop browser if instead the authentication page is rendered in an embedded web view.

    Do not use undocumented APIs without express permission. Don't reverse engineer undocumented Academicprogress API Services or otherwise attempt to derive or use the underlying source code of undocumented Academicprogress API Services. You may only access data from Academicprogress API Services according to the means stipulated in the official documentation of that API Service, as provided on Academicprogress's developer site.

    Do not make false or misleading statements about any entities that have allegedly authorized or managed your application. You must accurately represent the company, organization, or other authority that manages your application. Making false representations about client credentials to Academicprogress or Academicprogress users is grounds for suspension.

    Child-directed apps

    The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, or COPPA, applies to websites, apps, and services directed to children under the age of 13 and general audience apps, websites, or services with users known to be under the age of 13. While child-directed apps may use some Academicprogress services, developers are responsible for using these services according to their obligations under the law. Please review the FTC's guidance on COPPA (including information about the differences between mixed audience apps and apps directed primarily to children from the FTC's website) and consult with your own legal counsel.

    Child-directed apps: If your application is directed primarily at children, it should not use Academicprogress Sign-In or any other Academicprogress API Service that accesses data associated with a Academicprogress Account. This restriction includes Academicprogress Play Games Services and any other Academicprogress API Service using the OAuth technology for authentication and authorization.

    Mixed audience apps: Applications that are mixed audience shouldn't require users to sign in to a Academicprogress Account, but can offer, for example, Academicprogress Sign-In or Academicprogress Play Games Services as an optional feature. In these cases, users must be able to access the application in its entirety without signing into a Academicprogress Account.

    Maintain a secure operating environment

    You must take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect all applications or systems that make use of Academicprogress API Services against unauthorized or unlawful access, use, destruction, loss, alteration, or disclosure.


    You must access Academicprogress API Services in accordance with the Academicprogress APIs Terms of Service. If you are found to be out of compliance with the Academicprogress APIs Terms of Service, this Academicprogress API Services: User Data Policy, or any Academicprogress product policies that are applicable to the Academicprogress API Service you are using, Academicprogress may revoke or suspend your access to Academicprogress API Services and other Academicprogress products and services. Your access to Academicprogress API Services may also be revoked if your application enables end-users or other parties to violate the Academicprogress APIs Terms of Service and/or Academicprogress policies
