This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally identifiable information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address, school data or other details to help you with your experience on the ePlanner.

We collect information from you when you register on our site or fill out a form.

We may use the information we collect from you when you register, respond to a survey, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:

  • To personalize user's experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content in which you are most interested.
  • To send periodic emails regarding your account or services.

We do not use an SSL certificate because we do not handle necessarily sensitive information. Users passwords are encrypted and databases are all password protected.


Cookies

We use cookies on the ePlanner. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We use cookies to:

  • Understand and save user's preferences for future visits.
  • Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third party services that track this information on our behalf.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

If users disable cookies in their browser, login will be affected.


Third Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice. This does not include Priory Community School and other parties who assist us in operating our website, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.

However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.


California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpufL

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously
  • Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Updates to the Privacy Policy

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on the index of the website.

Users are able to change their personal information by logging in to their account.


Tracking

We use Google Analytics to gather data about user's activities, and the responsibility of halting operations when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place relies on this service.


COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We market to and collect information from children under 13. We also allow third parties (Google Analytics), collect information from children under 13.

In order to remove your child’s information please contact the ePlanner team at eplanner@pcsa.org.uk

We adhere to the following COPPA tenants:

  • We will not require a child to disclose more infomration than is reasonably necessary to particapate in an activity.
  • Parents can review their child's personal information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child's information.
  • Parents can agree to the collection and use of their child's information, but still NOT allow disclosure to third parties unless that's part of the service.
  • Parents can review, delete, manage or refuse with whom their child's information is shared by contacting us directly.
  • We will notify parents directly before collecting PII from their kids. This includes what specific information you will want to collect and how the parents can give their consent. Also, if the parent doesn't consent within a reasonable time you will delete the parent's and childs online contact info from your records.
  • Parents can give consent by sign a consent form and send it back to you via fax, mail, or electronic scan or contacting us directly.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur. We will notify the users via email, and via an on-site notification as soon as possible.


CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

To be accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:

  • NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
  • Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way
  • Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
  • Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.
  • Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly
  • Allow users to unsubscribe by contacting us directly

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at eplanner@pcsa.org.uk and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence, except vital information such as password resets and notices.
