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 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.
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 email@example.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
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.
10. Contact Us
New families and former families - we are always happy to hear from you! Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at the school address at any time with questions, suggestions, comments, complaints or just to say hi.
