WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU DO WE COLLECT?
When you visit our Web Site, you may provide us with three types of information: (1) personally identifiable information that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis, (2) general user information that does not contain personally identifiable information, which is collected on an aggregate basis as you browse the Web Site, and (3) data that relates to student assessments. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with requested information, you may not be able to access all of our Web Site's content or services.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
- Personally Identifiable Information You Choose to Provide
We may ask for certain personal information from you for the purpose of providing to you content and/or services that you request. For example, if you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date).
We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you. We also request your name and e-mail address each time you contact us by clicking on the "Contact Us" link. We may retain a record of users who have contacted us in order to respond properly to questions or concerns and for purposes of future communications.
- Non-Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
Cookies/ Web server logs: Similar to other commercial Web sites, our Web Site utilizes standard technology called "cookies." A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. Other than for the purpose of identifying a member with their User ID to allow them to log into the member pages of the site, we do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site.
We use both session cookies and persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. For example, we set a persistent cookie to store your UserName, so you don’t have to enter it more than once. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file. You should consult with your browser's provider/manufacturer if you have any questions regarding disabling cookies.
If you reject cookies, you may still visit our site, but your ability to access the member pages of our site will be limited.
- Data entered for student assessments
We store this data for your use, but do not personally review or share this data unless specifically requested by you to do so. We do not share your data with any third parties. If we wish to use this data for research purposes, we will ask for a release for this purpose, either through your licensing agreement, or in a separate document.
We use your personally identifiable information to provide you with the information or content that you have requested, and, in some cases, to contact you about our programs, products, features, or services. If you no longer wish to receive press releases or any other type of information from us, you may send us an email through our "Contact Us" link or use the "My Account" area to change your preferences.
We use non-identifying information collected on our Web Site in the aggregate to better understand your use of the Web Site and to enhance your enjoyment and experience. For example, we may use the information to improve the design and content of our Web Site or to analyze the programs and services that we offer.
We may provide access to your personally identifiable information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Web Site, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights, or to protect the rights and safety of visitors to this Web Site or the public. In those instances, the information is provided only for that limited purpose.
We will not share your personally identifiable information in ways unrelated to those described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
HOW DO YOU ACCESS AND/OR MODIFY YOUR INFORMATION OR CHOICES?
If you visit our Web Site and volunteer personally identifiable information, you may modify, update or delete such information at any time by visiting "My Account," where you will have the opportunity to access and revise certain of your personally identifiable information, and to update your preferences regarding what information you want to receive from us, or by clicking on the "Contact Us" link and sending us an e-mail, or by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases. In addition, please be aware that your ability to opt out from receiving marketing and promotional materials does not change our right to contact you regarding your use of our Web Site.
PRIVACY PROTECTIONS FOR CHILDREN USING THE INTERNET
Protecting children's privacy is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information on our Web Site from those we actually know are under the age of 13, nor is any part of our Web Site targeted to attract anyone under 13. We request that all visitors to our Web Site who are under 13 not disclose or provide any personally identifiable information. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete that child's personally identifiable information from our records.
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally identifiable information that we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as installing electronic security systems that guard against unauthorized access. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk.

By using our Web Site, participating in any of our services, and/or providing us with your information, you consent to this transfer.
