Families can order a print copy from the app and have it shipped to their home.
WHAT DO STUDENTS GET WITH THEIR DIGITAL YEARBOOK?
Students get a high-resolution, exact copy of the yearbook which works on all modern tablets & smartphones.
Students can “sign” each classmate’s book with one text-based message.
Students can send up to three stickers to each classmate’s book.
Students can receive a 7-second video message from any of their classmates.
They cannot copy, print or post to social media from the app.
Students can optionally purchase the ability to send one 7-second video message to each classmate as an in-app purchase, These Video “sends” are available in packs of 10 for $1.99. (price subject to change)
HOW DO STUDENTS GET THEIR DIGITAL YEARBOOK?
To unlock their yearbook, students will need a Personal Book ID (aka “code”).
The Personal Book IDs are all unique and delivered printed on a card, ticket or flyer and handed out with print books. Online orders can receive their code via confirmation email.
Each yearbook gets the same number of Personal Book IDs as there are portraits in the yearbook. Any student can use any Personal Book ID that has been delivered to their school.
Students go to the App store (Apple, Android or Amazon) and download the free Forever Connected yearbook app and register with their Personal Book ID.
On yearbook day each student buyer gets a Personal Book ID to access their digital yearbook.
Each ID is good for one user only and cannot be shared. (Just like a digital movie ticket).
Codes will only work for the school that they’re meant for, and any code for that school can be handed out to any student at that school.

WHAT PARENTAL CONTROLS ARE AVAILABLE?

Forever Connected is COPPA compliant for children under 13 and complies with state-specific regulations as well as compliance in Canada.
The optional, free ParentScreen app allows parents to intercept, monitor, block, enable and disable sending and receiving. It is designed for use with very young children. Learn more at https://www.foreverconnected.co/parentscreen
WHAT ABOUT BULLYING AND ONLINE SAFETY?
Just like print, no one can write in your digital yearbook without your permission (or your parent’s). You can block or delete individual users or messages.
Forever Connected’s messages are one-to-one personal messages—not in a group where so much bullying happens.
Forever Connected is not available on the web on desktop computers or laptops, only on registered phones & tablets. So it’s not searchable by Google.

CAN STUDENTS COPY, PRINT OR SHARE THEIR YEARBOOK?
No! This is not a PDF that can be emailed or shared. Each student (family for young children) has a personal account, like an email account, which will show messages sent from/to that account.
