Why did we make these changes?

Accessibyte Online has been live for about 18 months now. During that time we've worked with many individuals, schools, state agencies and government agencies around the world. We've reviewed our policies with them to ensure our practices support our users.

As the internet changes, so do the requirements of online policies. Further clarification that we keep our user's data private will happen from time to time. We'll always side with our users when it comes to their data.
