NOTICE TO EDUCATIONAL END USERS. Echo360 makes available software and hardware tools to educational institutions like colleges and universities, and those institutions use our products to create audiovisual recordings of classes and lectures and later make such recordings available for viewing online, usually from the institution’s own websites (in each case, a “School Site”). Some of our Services may enable students to hold online discussions, make and store notes about the classes that they view online, or otherwise interact with recorded classroom materials. You understand that, even if you access our Services from a link within a School Site, these Terms apply to your use of our Services, but these Terms do not apply to your use of any School Site.
