Your privacy is our concern

At Schools K-12, we understand and support your desire to protect your personal information. The information we collect and retain about you is for the sole purpose of communicating with you, processing your requests for products and services, and informing you about additional services. Schools K-12 does not sell nonpublic personal information about current or former customers, nor do we share this type of information with anyone other than our partners and sponsors.

Information Collection and Use

Schools K-12 is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways other than as disclosed in this statement. Information is collected from our users at several different points throughout our website. We use their contact information to send communications about our company and services as well as information regarding their existing account. Users may opt-out of receiving this information. Information regarding a user’s hardware and software is automatically collected by SchoolsK-12.com and may be shared with a third party for traffic analysis and website improvement purposes. This information is not personally identifiable.

Cookies

SchoolsK-12.com deposits cookies on users’ hard drives. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. By setting a cookie on our site, the user does not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. A user that rejects the cookie will still access to our site; however, the user may be limited in some areas of our site. Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Sharing

We may, from time to time, share aggregated demographic information with our partners and sponsors. However, this information is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

Links

Our website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Schools K-12 is not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. We encourage our users to be aware of when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the Schools K-12 website.

Mail this to a Friend

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we will ask them for the friend's name and email address. SchoolsK-12.com will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. Schools K-12 stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The friend may contact Schools K-12 at information@SchoolsK-12.com to request the removal of this information from our database.

Security

This website takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect our users' information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When users submit sensitive information via the website, Schools K-12 uses commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information both online and off-line

If and when our registration or order form asks a user to enter sensitive information (i.e. credit card number and/or social security number), that information will be encrypted and protected with encryption software called Secure Socket Layer (SSL). While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open.

Schools K-12 maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information against unauthorized access or use. Nonpublic personal information about you is restricted to those employees who need to know that information to perform a specific job. Our database servers used to store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to information@schoolsK-12.com.

Choice/Opt-out

Users who no longer wish to receive emails from Schools K-12 or our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by sending an email to opt-out@schoolsk-12.com. By choosing to opt-out of future contact from Schools K-12, you will also be opting out of free updates, if any, of previously ordered premium reports. We will provide your email address to our partners and sponsors so that they can add your name and contact information to their own opt-out list.

Notification of Changes

Schoolsk-12 reserves the right to change its Privacy Policy at any time. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our homepage. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Login Security

When a user chooses a password for their Profile, the password is stored on a password protected server. However, when the user sends their password across the Internet to Schools K-12, there is a very slight possibility that an experienced hacker could steal the password by sniffing the line on the user’s property or somewhere between the user's property and our server.

Disclosures

Schools K-12 cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Agreement. As required by law, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances. While we utilize commercially reasonable security measures, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.

In the event that Schools K-12 or all of its assets are acquired, customer information, including any visitor information collected through the site, would be one of the transferred assets.

Schools K-12 will disclose member information in circumstances where we believe that the disclosing of this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other visitors, members, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

Schools K-12 reserves the right to disclose visitor or member information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
