You may be asked for, when appropriate, name, e-mail address, account information, mailing address, phone number and credit card information. You may, however, visit our website without submitting personally identifiable information. We will collect personal identification information from you only if you confirm that you are over 18 years of age and voluntarily submit such information. If you are under the age of 18, we will collect personally identifiable information from you if we obtain consent from your parent or legal guardian. You can always refuse to supply personally identification information, except that it may prevent them you from engaging in certain services provided over the website.
Our website is neither directed to, nor intended to be used by anyone who is less than 18 years of age without consent of their parents or legal guardian. You represent that you are at least 18 years of age, or that you have the consent of your parent or legal guardian to use the website. We do not collect personally identifiable information from anyone we actually know is a minor under the age of 13, unless we have obtained consent from their parent or legal guardian. If we are notified that anyone under the age of 13 has supplied us with personal information without such consent, we will comply with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”).
We may also collect non-personal identification information about you whenever you interact with the Websites. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of device and technical information about your means of connection to our website, such as the operating system, IP address, and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.
We may collect information in the form of website server logs. These logs are files that record activity on the website and gather statistics about users’ activities, such as: (1) how many users have visited the website; (2) how often; (3) how many hits the website and a particular webpage has received; (4) sign-in and sign-off times for the website; (5) type and quality of the user’s Internet connection to the website; (6) identification of the user’s hardware and software accessing the website; (7) the features on the website you used; and, (8) the frequency of use. The entries comprising the logs contain IP addresses, user IDs, and identification of the Internet service provider that provides your connection to the Internet. Generally, we use the Logs to operate and improve the website, to identify the popularity of certain features, to assist with internal marketing and demographic studies, to enable us to assess overall efficiency and activity on the website and to assess users’ web-browsing activities, preferences, and habits. We also use the logs to monitor traffic on the website and to troubleshoot technical problems.
C. What do we use your information for?
In addition to what is set forth above, any of the information we collect from you may be used to improve customer service, to manage our business operations, for survey or other site feature or to send periodic emails. The email address you provide may be used to send you information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests.
D. How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information, including the use of SSL encryption protocols for personal information exchanged over the Websites.
F. Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, managing our marketing and advertising programs, sponsoring events for our benefit or in relation to us, or providing services to you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety.
If consent has not been previously obtained from the parent or legal guardian of the child, we will notify the parent or legal guardian by email and request consent to continue to communicate with the child or to maintain the information. If consent is not received within a reasonable time, the information will be deleted from our systems and we will cease communicating with the child.
We Will Not Disclose the Information.
We will not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties any person’s personally identifiable information. This does not include necessary disclosures to trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our school business, managing our marketing and advertising programs, or providing services to you or your child, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
A parent or legal guardian has the option to agree to the collection of personal information from the child without consenting to disclosure of information to our trusted third parties. However, denying such consent may affect the child’s ability to use certain features of the Websites or to participate in certain school events or activities.
We may also release information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety.
Revoking Consent. At any time, a parent or legal guardian may revoke his/her consent, refuse to allow an us to further use or collect their child’s personal information, and direct us to delete the information (except that required for record keeping purposes). In such event, we may terminate any service provided to the child, but only if the information at issue is reasonably necessary for the child’s participation in that activity.
Access to the Information
At the request of a parent or legal guardian, we will disclose the general kinds of personal information we have collect online from a child as well as the specific information collected from a child who visited our Websites. Prior to providing such information, we will use reasonable steps to verify the identity of the child’s parent or legal guardian.
