Privacy Policy

Last updated December 8, 2010

 

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for the LANK website (collectively, the "Website" located at www.lankschool.com). Lake Anne Nursery Kindergarten, the provider of the Website (referred to as "us" or "we"), is committed to protecting your privacy online. Please read the following to learn what information we collect from you (the "User" or the "End User") and how we use that information. If you have any questions about our privacy policy, feel free to email us at information@lankschool.com.

 

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY. BY ACCESSING OR USING WWW.LANKSCHOOL.COM, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND TO ALL THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND OUR WEBSITE TERMS OF USE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS OR USE WWW.LANKSCHOOL.COM.

 
1. Changes to the LANK Privacy Policy

If we make any changes to our privacy policy, we will update this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we think are necessary so that you know what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

 

We reserve the right to change this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. The privacy policy may be changed without notice. 

 

2. Information LANK Collects and How We Use it

We collect two types of information about our Website Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

 

Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies a specific End User. When you do certain things on the Website, such as inquiring about our classes, programs and availability, or offering to provide assistance to us (collectively, "Identification Activities"), we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself. It is optional for you to engage in an Identification Activity. If you elect to engage in an Identification Activity, however, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, telephone number and date of birth. Depending on the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is identified as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that activity.

 

We want our Website to be the best that it can for you. This is why we use Personally Identifiable Information to provide services to you, enhance the operation of the Website, analyze Website use, improve our service offerings, improve our marketing, promotional and charitable fundraising efforts, and to tailor your experience with certain third parties as provided in Item 3 of this Privacy Policy. For example, if you send us an email about a good experience you had at LANK, we might wish to post your comments and feedback in our marketing materials or on our Website. If your comments contain personal information such as your name, we will always obtain consent from you to post your name along with your comment prior to posting your comment for public view. We may also contact you via telephone, email or direct mail to let you know about upcoming events. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, resolve disputes, accomplish administrative tasks, contact you, enforce our agreements with you, including our Website Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities.

 

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that does not identify a specific End User. This type of information may include things like the Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") of the website you visited before coming to our Website, the URL of the website you visit after leaving our Website, the type of browser you are using and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. We, and/or our authorized Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers, may automatically collect this information when you visit our Website through the use of electronic tools like Cookies and Web beacons, as described in Items 4 and 8 of this Privacy Policy.

 

We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer the Website, analyze trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. We may also share this information with our authorized Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming.

 

3. Releasing Personally Identifiable Information

We will only release your Personally Identifiable Information with other parties in the following situations:

Authorized Third Party Service Providers: While we don't do this often, we may provide services and products through third parties. These "Third Party Service Providers" perform functions on our behalf, like sending out and distributing our administrative and promotional emails. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with such Service Providers to send postal mail or email, remove repetitive information on customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing and fundraising assistance, provide search results and links, operate the Website, troubleshoot, and provide customer service. We may also collect personal information from individuals and companies ("Affiliates") with whom we have business relationships and may share your information with Service Providers to accomplish our administrative tasks. For example, we use Constant Contact to share newsletters via email with LANK families. Likewise, we may release an Affiliate's information to our bank to send out a payment. The use of your Personally Identifiable Information by such parties is governed by the privacy policies of such parties and is not subject to our control.

 

Protection and the Protection of Others: We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Website; enforce or apply this Privacy Policy, our Website Terms of Use or other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of the Website, its Users or others.

 

4. Releasing Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We also use Third Party Service Providers to track and analyze Non-Personally Identifiable usage and volume statistical information from our Users to administer our Website and constantly improve its quality. Please note that this is not Personally Identifiable Information, only general summaries of the activities of our Users. Such data is collected on our behalf, and is owned and used by us.

 

5. Updating and Correcting Your Information

We make sure that you should have the right to access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information you provide us. You may change any of your Personally Identifiable Information by sending us an email at information@lankschool.com. Please indicate your name, address and email address, and what information you would like to update when you contact us.

We encourage you to promptly update your Personally Identifiable Information if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on the Website. In addition, it may be impossible for us to completely delete all of your information because we periodically backup information.

 

6. Your Choices on Collection and Use of Information

As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, although it may be required to engage in a certain activity on the Website.

 

7. Security of Information

We respect your privacy and take security seriously! Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which do the same, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the Website, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.

 

8. Data Tracking

In order to facilitate and customize your experience with the Website, we store cookies on your computer. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a User's computer for record-keeping purposes which contains information about that User. We use cookies to speed up your Website experience, remind us who you are, and track and target User likes and dislikes in order to provide an experience that is unique to your interests. Cookies also allow us to collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information from you, like which pages you visited and what links you clicked on. Use of this information helps us to create a more user-friendly experience for all visitors.

 

We may also enable advertisers and ad servers to promote third-party products and/or services by placing advertisements on the Website. These advertisers and ad servers may use Cookies and/or "Web Beacons" (which are usually small, transparent graphic images) in order to monitor information related to served advertisements. These cookies and beacons our not controlled by LANK, and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Clicking on advertisements may direct you to the website of a third-party and the advertiser. This Privacy Policy does not cover the privacy practices of any advertisers or ad servers.

 

9. Miscellaneous Privacy Issues

Minors under the age of 18 may not use the Website. LANK does not intentionally sell services to anyone under the age of 18, nor do they specifically target or take the personally identifiable information of any minor.

Public Areas. We may provide areas on our Website where you can publicly post information about yourself, or can communicate with others such as discussion boards or blogs, or submit content. This information may be accessible by anyone using the public site and may appear on other websites or web searches, and therefore this information could be read, collected, and used by others.
