Use of Personally Identifiable Information
We may store and process your personally identifiable information in order to fulfill any requests for information that you make of us, process your donations, provide you access to certain restricted portions of the Site, upload blog messages, or to better understand your needs and to learn how to improve our Site offerings. We may also use your personally identifiable information to contact you (for example, we may respond to your email inquiries, request for more information, or request to join our mailing list). We will not sell or rent your personal information to any third party not affiliated with the Academy.
Our interactive forums provide our registered users an opportunity to interact with one another. Though we encourage the dialogue, you should remain cautious about revealing personal information such as age, e-mail address and phone number to other participants in these forums. You, and not we, are liable for any consequences that result from your disclosure of personal information to participants in such forums.
You may make donations to us through the Site or by telephone. When you make donations through the Site, you will be asked to submit certain information such as your name, mailing address, email address, credit/debit card information, etc. Stripe.com, Innerfence.com, Securus.com and Authorize.net are the third party service providers we use to process your credit/debit card transaction. If you make a contribution to us via the Site by credit card, Stripe.com may retain your credit card information for 90 days, according to their own business processes. We are obligated to comply with Payment Card Industry standards for our remote devices such as card readers, iPads, and computers. We must comply with all applicable laws regarding security and treatment of your personal and financial information. Our third party providers; Stripe.com, Innerfence.com, Securus.com and Authorize.net, are obligated to comply with all applicable laws regarding security and treatment of your personal and financial information.
Donor Privacy Notice
We will not sell our donors’ names or personal information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. This policy applies to all information received by Academy, both online and offline, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.
To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation.
Disclosure to Service Providers
Contacting Us Regarding Your Personally Identifiable Information
Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83, California residents who have an established business relationship with us have the right to request that we provide certain information regarding the disclosure of their personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year.
If you have submitted personally identifiable information through the Site, and you would like to review our use of your personally identifiable information, request changes or have that information deleted from our databases, please contact us by sending a letter or email to us at the Academy for the Love of Learning, 133 Seton Village Road, Santa Fe, NM 87508; email: email@example.com.
We will then use reasonable efforts to change or remove your personally identifiable information from our files, unless we are entitled or required to retain it pursuant to other agreements or by law. We will use reasonable efforts to supply you with this information and correct any factual inaccuracies in this information. Notwithstanding the prior two sentences, if the laws in your state provide you with additional protections or require us to comply with more stringent obligations to provide you with, remove, or correct your personally identifiable information, we will comply with those legal requirements.
Unsubscribe from Email Newsletters
You may opt out of marketing and solicitation email from the Academy by using the unsubscribe instructions in an Academy email. We will use your email information to send you administrative emails. You acknowledge and agree that you cannot opt out of administration emails form the Academy.
Other Uses of Personal Information
We may transfer personally identifiable information to service providers such as outside contractors, auditors, consultants or others hired by the Academy to assist in providing financial or operational activities on the Academy’s behalf, including technical and processing services and analysis of website performance.
We may transfer personally identifiable information to other third parties if we receive your permission or we are required to do so by law, or we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order, a legal process served on the Academy, or to resolve any potential fraud or perceived irregularity in any audits of the accuracy of any documentation or information submitted to the Academy by you or on your behalf, as deemed appropriate by the Academy.
Transfers of Business Assets
In the event the Academy goes through a transaction, such as a merger, being acquired by another organization, bankruptcy, or selling all or a portion of its assets, your personally identifiable information may be part of the business assets transferred. We can provide no assurance that you will be notified in advance of the transfer, if any, of your personally identifiable information in connection with any such transition or transfer.
Protection of Academy and Others
We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we reasonably believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of the Academy, our employees, users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and data breach risk reduction.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically
In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include but are not limited to the frequency of your use of the Site and the route by which you choose to access the Site, demographic information, and your use of any available hyperlinks. We and our service providers, agents or advisors may process and use this data for purposes including, but not limited to, planning Site development, assessing patterns of use, or to include you in e-mail or mailing lists so that we may send you information or updates and/or offer you services.
We strive to protect the privacy of the information that you share with us. We have undertaken reasonable efforts to implement security measures designed to protect all data we collect against unauthorized access. We utilize the industry standard security measures available through your browser or device, so that it is unlikely that your information can be read as it travels over the Internet. We also implement measures to protect your personal information off-line.
Because the internet is inherently insecure and no information system is 100% secure and even the most secure system can be compromised, we cannot guarantee security. As such, the Academy cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you submit to us via the Site, including without limitation personally identifiable information, and you do so at your own risk.
This Site is directed toward and designed for use by persons aged 18 or the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside. We will not establish or maintain accounts for any person that we know to be under the age of 18. We do not solicit or knowingly collect personally identifiable information from persons under the age of 18. If we nevertheless discover that we have received personally identifiable information from an individual who indicates that he or she is, or that we otherwise have reason to believe is, under the age of 18, we will promptly delete such information from our systems. Additionally, a child’s parent or legal guardian may request that the child’s information be deleted from our files by contacting our Privacy Compliance Officer as set forth above.
