What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Your privacy is important to us and protecting it is a priority. This notice explains how we protect your privacy and treat your personal information. It applies to current and former visitors. “Personal information” here means anything we know about you personally including the data we collect below.
Data We Collect and Why We Collect It
In an effort to better understand who is visiting our website and to provide those individuals with the most relevant information we collect some data:
- Your name (So we can send you personalized emails)
- Email address (so we know where to send the emails)
- Education role (so we can send you customized content specific to your role)
- What resources you’ve downloaded (so we can send you tailored content specific to your interests)
- When you signed up for our emails (so we know what content you may have already seen)
- Your IP address, time zone, and GPS information (so we can let you know about events in your area)
How We Collect This Data
Your name and email address, are only collected if you’ve typed them in yourself such as when signing up for our email list or when downloading some of our resources.
Other information is collected automatically through website software. For example, the name of the resource you downloaded is automatically added to the database. Other information like when you signed up for our emails, your IP address, time zone, and GPS information is also added automatically.
Most of your data is stored on MailChimp which is the company we use to send out our emails. However some of your data is stored on Facebook (to help us know which people on Facebook are visiting our site so that I can send specific content to them on Facebook).
How Long We Hold On To This Data
We send regular emails to people on our list that include ideas, resources, tips, or special offers and will continue to use your information indefinitely to provide you the best possible value. You may opt out of receiving these emails at any time by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any email or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How We Keep Your Data Safe
We use encrypted 256-bit SSL encryption protocols and two-factor authentication behind a username and password combination. It is important to realize though that there is no such thing as perfect safety and security on the Internet.
We Do Not Share Your Data
We will not share your data with anyone. Again, you can “opt out” any time by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any email or by emailing us at email@example.com
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser to help spam detection.
