1. Description of the ART2BIT PLATFORM
The ART2BIT PLATFORM is owned by the company JOVI, S.A. with registered office at Avda. Compositor Bizet 39-41, 08191 Rubí, Barcelona with Spanish Tax Identification Number (NIF) A-08060279. It is part of an educational robotics project that promotes critical thinking through its proprietary C.R.E.A. methodology, based on guided activities developed to guarantee and promote the learning of computational thinking through the arts, problem solving and the curricular content of the educational stage in a cross-cutting way in the various STEAM areas. It does all this through the use of JOVI’s proprietary technological product marketed under the name “JOVI BIT”. JOVI offers these services remotely for use by the SCHOOL to which the USER belongs as “Software as a Service”, hereinafter referred to as SAAS.
Access to and reproduction and use of the ART2BIT PROJECT (consisting of the ART2BIT PLATFORM and the JOVI BIT PRODUCT, jointly referred to as THE ART2BIT PROJECT) requires prior acceptance of the terms and conditions of use in force at any time. JOVI reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions of use whenever it deems appropriate, and will publish the new terms and conditions in subsequent Platform updates.
We inform the USER that some personal data of teachers and students who will use this platform and register as USERS will be collected and processed through the ART2BIT platform.
The sole purpose of the processing of the personal data of USERS (teachers and students) is to provide USERS with the educational robotics services of the ART2BIT platform and manage the SCHOOL’s relationship with JOVI to resolve any doubts, queries and technical problems that the SCHOOL may have concerning the use of the ART2BIT platform.
Prior to contracting the usage license for the ART2BIT platform, the SCHOOL received all the necessary information to understand the service and JOVI's ART2BIT educational robotics PROJECT.
