Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) governs your use of www.ConnectedLearningAlliance.org (the “Site”) and the products, software, and services made available through the Site (referred to collectively as the “Services” in this document, but excluding any services provided to you by ConnectedLearningAlliance.org under a separate written agreement).

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Privacy Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information.

BY USING THE SITE OR ANY SERVICES, YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE TO OUR COLLECTION, USE, COMMUNICATION AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION AS SET FORTH IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS, DO NOT USE THE SITE, DO NOT ACCESS OR USE ANY SERVICES, AND DO NOT PROVIDE US WITH ANY OF YOUR INFORMATION.

  1. Information Gathered by ConnectedLearningAlliance.org

    For visitors to our website, we log standard technical information, such as the numerical Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you accessed the site, and the Internet address of the website from which you followed a link to our site. The information is kept primarily to assist us in diagnosing technical problems and defending against attacks on the site.

    In addition, ConnectedLearningAlliance.org collects and retains information you submit to us. It is up to you whether to submit information to us, and how much information to provide. We may ask for additional personal information (such as your name, mailing address, email address, or phone number) when you provide feedback or comments, or otherwise communicate with us.

    When you visit ConnectedLearningAlliance.org, we may also send one or more cookies – a small file containing a string of characters – to your computer or other device that uniquely identifies your browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our service.

    Note: When content or Services are embedded on or provided through websites other than this Site, the providers of those websites may collect information about you and use it in accordance with their respective privacy policies. ConnectedLearningAlliance.org cannot vouch for those policies or how they are implemented. Third party websites that may be accessed through the site may use cookies, alone or with web beacons or other tracking technology, to collect information about you when you use the Site, and they may be able to associate the information they collect about you with the personal information they collect on their websites. They may use this information to provide you with behavioral advertising or other targeted content. We cannot control any third party tracking technologies or how they may be used.

  2. Use of Information by ConnectedLearningAlliance.org

    In general, ConnectedLearningAlliance.org uses the information provided by you to further its mission, including encouraging its core values of equity, participation, and social connection. We also look at technical information to diagnose problems with our server and to administer ConnectedLearningAlliance.org site.

    We will use any personal information you provide to us in order to respond to your inquiry and to help us provide you any information you have requested. We may retain records of any correspondence from you for internal record-keeping purposes.

  3. Sharing and Disclosure of Your Information

    While ConnectedLearningAlliance.org endeavors to provide the highest level of protection for your information, we may disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties in limited circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) to our affiliates and other trusted service providers who need that information to conduct business on our behalf (in which case we will provide them only with the information they need to know in order to perform those services, and will work with them to respect and protect your personal information); or (3) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order.

    If we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with notice (unless we are prohibited from doing so) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address, or by postal mail if you have entered a postal address. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.

    In addition, we may independently object to requests for access to information about users of our site that we believe to be improper.

    Except as described above, we will not sell any personal information about you that we may collect through the Site to anyone for any purpose.

  4. Security

    ConnectedLearningAlliance.org protects personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, or use.

    Do Not Track is a preference that you can set in your web browser to let the websites you visit know that you do not want them to collect information about you. The Site and the Services are not equipped to respond to Do Not Track settings. In addition, we cannot assure you that third parties servicing or placing advertisements on the Site will honor any Do Not Track settings.
