What information we collect
We obtain from users the kind of information that is necessary for users to access our website, to register as a parent or program provider and to use our service.
The following are some specific types of information we collect:
- Your name
- Your contact number
- Your email address
- Your credit card number
- Information about your program preferences
- Information about your programs
- Your communications with us
How we use your information
We use your information primarily to communicate with you. The Company also expects to ask you for information if and when you register on our website and we will use that information to improve the user experience on our website, to identify prior visitors and to process transactions. We may also use your information to contact you by email unless you have withdrawn your permission for us to do so. To the extent that we keep any of your personally identifiable information, you will be allowed to change such information in accordance with the instructions on our website. We may also keep track of your interactions with us and other users, including but not limited to your site activity, program purchases, program offerings and correspondence.
Who we share it with
We may share your information with credit card companies, PayPal, lenders, credit bureaus, attorneys, accountants, technicians and other third party service providers where it is necessary to have access to your information to provide their services. We may also provide analyses of our users in the aggregate to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties. We may also disclose and otherwise use, on an anonymous basis, purchase patterns, commentary, reviews and other non-personal information about customers. We may also provide addresses to overnight couriers, the US Postal Service and to other third parties solely for delivery purposes. In the event that the Company were ever to enter into a joint venture with a third party or if it were to be acquired, the joint venturer or acquirer would most likely succeed to your information as it is one of the assets of our business. It may also be necessary for us to release your personal information in response to a subpoena or other legal process or to otherwise comply with law. In the event of litigation, we also reserve the right to provide information without the necessity of receiving a subpoena.
How we offer our customers a choice
If you do not want the Company to contact you or your company for marketing or other purposes by e-mail, postal mail, fax and/or phone, you may opt out by contacting our customer service by telephone or e-mail. Please note that we do not allow our customers to opt out of contact that is required by law.
Security of your information
The Company uses up-to-date security technology to protect our user data. Access to your information is restricted to authorized personnel only. Credit card numbers are only used for payment processing, where applicable, and are never retained for marketing or other purposes.
