Schools and Student Use
Creation of School Accounts: Please note that in order for School User accounts to be associated with a School and recognised as School Accounts (as defined in our Terms of Service), the accounts must be created by or at the direction of a School, using a school email address and associated with a School’s class on the Service. For example, a School Account is created when:
In cases where we do not have a separate contract with a School district or educational agency, we may require notification that the accounts are used for school purposes in order to recognise them as School Accounts. If you are a School, please contact our School Partnerships Team to learn more about how to ensure that student accounts are set up and managed as School Accounts.

Children’s Privacy Notice
Tembo is committed to Children’s privacy.
Protecting the privacy of Children is especially important to Tembo. For that reason, we created certain features designed to help protect personal information relating to Children (“Child Users”). When a Child creates an account, we seek the consent of a parent or legal guardian (“Parent”) for that account. When Tembo is used by a School in an educational setting, we rely on the School to provide the requisite consent, on behalf of the Parent, for Tembo to collect information from a School User under the age of 13.
Please review “Learn More” for more information about:
We may use donor information to communicate with you about your contribution and to send fundraising updates and information regarding the advancement of our mission.
We do not share personally identifiable donor information except with your consent or as required by law.
If you have registered for an account with us, then you may update your preferences in your account settings to opt out of donor emails. If you do not have an account with us, then you may opt out by clicking the unsubscribe link on the donor email message or responding back to the email asking to be removed. Please note that if you have previously unsubscribed but subsequently donate (or attend a donor event), then we may send you follow up communications regarding your support of our mission.
If you wish to exercise a right, please Contact Tembo from Umojami. Our ability to respond to specific requests may be limited by applicable law and the functionality of our Service.
International Data Transfer : Our Service is operated and managed on servers located within the United States. If you choose to use our Service from Europe or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that differ from United States law, then you acknowledge that Tembo will transfer, store, and process your personal information to the United States for the purpose of performing the Service according to our contract (e.g., our Terms of Service) and for any other purpose for which you provide explicit, informed consent.
