1. WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED BY Tamritz?
TAMRITZ collects two types of information: Personally identifiable information (“PII”) and non-personally identifiable information.
No person under the age of thirteen is permitted to obtain access to the Sites without the prior consent of their parent or guardian, school or program administrator, or teacher. We require that such consent be in writing and on file with us or with the school or program enrolling children and students with the Sites.
Personally Identifiable Information
When you initially create an account we will collect your first and last name, your e-mail address, a username, and your organization/employer. We may also collect or assign a personal identification number to be associated with your account. If you are an school or program administrator or teacher you may be entitled to create accounts on behalf of children and students. In such cases, we will collect the name of the child in the form of a first name, last name, nickname, and/or username; information concerning the age of the child, which may include the child’s date of birth and/or grade level; and e-mail address. We may also collect information concerning a child or student’s parents or guardians, including such persons’ name and e-mail address.
In the event that you purchase products or services from us, during the payment process, we will collect the purchaser’s first and last name; credit card number, expiration date, and card verification value; and billing address, including street and number, city, state and zip code. We may also collect a purchaser’s telephone number. We do not use any of the information collected pursuant to this paragraph for any purpose other than processing payment.
When you submit a form through the “Contact Us” portion of the Sites, we collect your username, first and last name, e-mail address, and message. We may also collect your telephone number and organization/employer. We do not use any of the information collected pursuant to this paragraph for any purpose other than responding directly on a one-time basis to your specific inquiry and for aggregating (on a non-personally identifiable basis) the comments received through this portion of the website for internal purposes.
During the course of your, your children’s, or your student’s (each a “User”) use of the Sites we may collect other information which is necessary to track progress, such as answers to questions and quizzes and usage information. We may collect this information through the use of software technologies such as unique identifiers or “cookies.”
We may also collect personally identifiable information that is posted to the Sites by you, your children or your students, including messages sent via the site by Users to other users privately or publicly. It is our policy to periodically remind all users not to share personal information via the internet, including via any of the Sites, where appropriate, however we undertake no responsibility to provide such reminders or warnings whenever content submission is available to a user or to monitor such content for personally identifiable information. Content which is submitted by any User may be made available to all other users of the Sites.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
In addition to the personally identifiable information set forth above, we may collect certain other information which by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you or the users associated with your account. This may include the collection of anonymous statistical data concerning the computer operating system and version (e.g. Windows XP, Windows 7, Mac OS X, Linux, etc.), the web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.) and its version and capabilities, the IP address and internet service provider, and the frequency with which various portions of the Site are accessed. This information is used to help us to understand who is using, and to improve, market and develop, the Sites. We, or a third party contractor on our behalf, may collect non-personally identifying information through the use of software technologies such as unique identifiers or cookies.
2. How WILL TAMRITZ Use, Disclose, and Store the Information IT CollectS?
Unless our use of the information you provide is specifically limited in Section 1, we may also use the information we collect from you, including PII, for any or all of the following purposes:
– To provide parents or guardians, school or program administrators, and teachers with updates regarding their associated User’s use of the Sites.
– To allow parents or guardians, school or program administrators, and teachers to review the PII submitted by the children or students associated with their account, as applicable.
– To conduct research and analysis concerning the learning principles underlying and utilized in connection with the Site and, in limited cases and with additional notice to you and your specific consent, sharing information with academic and research institutions for such use in compliance with academic guidelines.
We also may share PII and Non-Personally Identifiable Information with affiliates, trusted technology partners, and third party vendors who generate content, provide customer service or billing services, process consents, and/or monitor the Sites. These third parties have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of such information, and the information is not shared with any of these third party technology partners or vendors for their marketing purposes.
We do not allow third-party companies to solicit or advertise to our users, and will not sell or otherwise make your information available to any third-party for such purposes, except to the extent permitted by law as part of the sale or transfer of all or part of the Sites to another entity.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We store all of the information we receive from you on servers within the United States, and have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access to your information. We have contracted with third party payment agents who utilize industry standard encryption and protections to ensure that when you enter sensitive information such as your credit card number that information is secured. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we do not bear any responsibility for the privacy or security of any information which you provide to third parties.
3. HOW CAN I ACCESS, UPDATE AND CORRECT, OR REQUEST DELETION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION?
You may contact us at any time, as provided in Section 4, below, if you would like to: (1) access the PII we have collected from you or users associated with your account; (2) correct factual errors in the PII we have collected; (3) change your preferences with respect to how we contact you or what information you receive from us; (4) request that we delete the PII we have collected from you and/or users associated with your account; or (5) request that we no longer collect PII from you or any other user associated with your account.
When contacting us, please include your e-mail address and a telephone number where we can reach you during normal business hours. To protect our users’ privacy, prior to disclosing any information or making any changes to how we collect or maintain information, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity.
Upon receipt of a verified request to alter or remove PII, we will make all reasonable efforts to alter or remove such PII from the databases we actively use and from other readily searchable media. It may not be technologically possible, however, to remove each and every recorded instance of such information. We create back-up of our databases and systems to protect information from inadvertent loss, so a copy of your information may exist in a non-erasable form that may be difficult or impossible for us to locate.
