COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We never collect any personal information (such as email address, name, or school street address) unless a visitor has chosen to provide that information to us. We do not use techniques that collect personal information without your knowledge. We always clarify why we are collecting any personal information, and how it will be used.

At various locations throughout the site, you may elect to send us an email in order to request more information, provide comments or suggestions, or to opt in to our email list. Visitor email queries or comments are read and dealt with, then deleted.

We do not sell or provide any personal information, submitted through our website, to third parties without your consent. (In the unlikely event that Edvantage, or substantially all of its assets, is acquired, our customer lists will be one of the transferred assets.)

USE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION

When you visit the Edvantage website, we may automatically record certain non-personal information about your visit. Client visits are tracked by a visitor’s IP address, host name, and time of visit, and subscribers’ use of our Service is logged in order to monitor compliance with the terms and conditions of the applicable licence.

Additional non-personal information we collect helps us to understand how traffic flows through our site. It also assists in our planning for new content and online services. These statistics do not contain personally identifiable information.

To improve our website and make it more useful and interesting to you, we use cookies for customization of information that we may present to you. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but you can change this feature in your browser.

EMAIL FOR MARKETING PURPOSES

From time to time, we send email messages to people who have opted in to our electronic mailing list. We use these messages to announce special offers on Edvantage products and services, as well as to distribute professional development support.

Every email message from our mailing list that you receive includes an email address where you can respond if you wish to be removed from our mailing list. In that case, we will promptly remove your name and email address. We will also remove from our electronic mailing list your mailing address and telephone number if you provided it to us, upon your request.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

You will find links to other websites in several areas of Edvantage sites. Please be aware that our Privacy Policy applies only to the confines of the Edvantage sites. Once you link to another site, you are subject to the privacy policy on that site.

We recommend that you read the privacy policies of other websites, particularly if you provide personal information on those sites.

We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason. Regardless of later updates, we will abide by the privacy practices described in this Policy at the time you provided us with your information.

SECURITY, PURCHASES AND CREDIT CARD USE

Edvantage has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Essentially, we encrypt all transmission of sensitive data and secure all of our repositories of data. When you use your credit card to shop at Edvantage, your transaction is secure. For the purposes of handling credit card transactions, we have contracted with a PCI DSS compliant ecommerce partner. Our servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an advanced encryption technology that works with most major browsers. This technology safeguards your personal information and privacy. However, you should understand that “perfect security” is never guaranteed.

NATURE OF DATA ON THE INTERNET.

Due to the complexity and open nature of the Internet, there is always a risk that information collected by and/or displayed on the Service may be compromised or accessed notwithstanding the implementation of reasonable data security measures by Edvantage. To mitigate such risks, you should (a) use secure usernames and passwords and carefully protect them from disclosure; and (b) implement updated internet security and virus protection software on your computer system. Should you suspect that your computer’s security has been compromised or that your username or password may have been have been accessed by a third party, please contact us immediately and request to have your password changed.

Any personally identifiable information you provide to Edvantage in connection with this Service will be stored on Edvantage’s servers or those of its affiliates and/or authorized vendors and will be accessible by authorized employees, agents and contractors of Edvantage and its affiliates and authorized vendors. Due to the global nature of the Service, personally identifiable information may be transmitted, stored or processed in a country other than the one in which you reside (“Resident Jurisdiction”), including primarily in the United States and Canada. Reasonable contractual or other measures Edvantage may take to protect your personally identifiable information while outside the Resident Jurisdiction are subject to applicable foreign legal requirements, for example, lawful requirements by governmental authorities or court order to disclose personally identifiable information to government authorities in the countries in which such data may be stored or processed. SUBJECT TO APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU RESIDE IN THE EUROPEAN UNION, CANADA OR OTHER JURISDICTION WITH SIMILAR DATA TRANSFER REGULATIONS, BY ACCEPTING THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU EXPLICITLY CONSENT THAT THE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE MAY BE TRANSFERRED AND STORED IN COUNTRIES OUTSIDE THE EU, CANADA OR YOUR RESIDENT JURISDICTION, INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES, IN CONNECTION WITH THE TERMS OF USE, THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT, AND IN ORDER TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO YOU.

SPECIAL NOTICE TO PARENTS, TEACHERS AND CHILDREN

PARENTS AND TEACHERS 

When using this Service, we encourage teachers and/or parents to spend time with their students explaining our Privacy Policy. We will never request personally identifiable information from a student in any of our public postings areas. We will not require a student to disclose more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to participate in any online activity. WE ASK TEACHERS TO HELP US PROTECT THEIR STUDENT’S PRIVACY BY INSTRUCTING THEM NEVER TO PROVIDE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION ON THIS SERVICE OR ANY OTHER SITE WITHOUT FIRST GETTING PARENTAL/GUARDIAN OR TEACHER PERMISSION

STUDENTS

Please do not give your full name, email address, home address, telephone number or any other personally identifiable information that would enable someone to contact you either online or offline, without first asking your parent/guardian or teacher for permission.

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from students either directly or passively except when a student voluntarily submits such information through a “Contact Us“ link or a public posting area within the Service, if such feature is available. If a student emails us via a “Contact Us“ link on any student-directed area of our sites and we can identify the sender as a student, any personally identifiable information submitted will only be used to respond on a one-time basis to such student. In addition, if we have actual knowledge that a student is sending or posting personally identifiable information on any area of the Service, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such personally identifiable information as soon as practicable
