PRIVACY AND SECURITY POLICY
THE INTERNET, PRIVACY AND TEACHINGVALUES.COM
The Internet contains a wealth of information; unfortunately, it may also contain personal details about you that you don't want everyone to know. For example, your real name (lots of people on the Internet use aliases, alter egos, or nicknames), street address, phone number, or e-mail address. When you go online, sites you visit may be gathering information about you without your knowledge. At TeachingValues.com we strive to help our customers protect their privacy while using our services.
TeachingValues.com policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. This policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it. Using the Internet should be a fun experience and we want to help you make it so.
Be assured that TeachingVAlues.com will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent. TeachingValues.com may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) TeachingValues.com's rights or property, other TeachingValues.com users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. TeachingValues.com may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
TeachingValues.com shares aggregate information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties. For example, we will say TeachingValues.com's audience is x percent female and y percent male. This data is used to customize TeachingValues.com content and advertising to deliver a better experience for our users.
There are cases where TeachingValues.com may ask you for personal information such as your name, e-mail address, and birth date. For example, we request personal information when you register for online shopping or transactions, or for services that require registration or subscription (for example TeachingValues.com e-zine newsletter). TeachingValues.com needs to collect this information for fulfilling orders, tracking/verifying compliance with TeachingValues.com policies as well as federal, state, and local laws, and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes.
In case you change your mind or some personal information changes (such as your ZIP code), we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this at the member information page or by contacting Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information provided at the time of Registration or submission from a person who is 13 years of age or over may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by TeachingValues.com or companies that have been prescreened by TeachingValues.com. To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, we allow you to opt out of the following services: sharing your information in our member directory, receiving communications from TeachingValues.com about new features or services, and receiving communications about offers from third-party companies that offer a product or service that we think would be of value to you. If a person objects to such use for any reason, he/she may stop that use -- by e-mail request to email@example.com.
Information provided when purchasing products from any of our online stores may be used for marketing and promotional purposes and is subject to the opt-out processes described on, or linked to, each order form.
POLICIES FOR KIDS (INDIVIDUALS UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE)
TeachingValues.com encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the activities offered on the site. No information should be submitted to or posted at TeachingValues.com by persons under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian.
Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, TeachingValues.com do not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever from persons under 13 years of age. All registrants receive an e-mail confirming their registration. In addition, when a person under 13 registers, he/she is required to provide the e-mail address of his/her parent or guardian and that parent or guardian receives an e-mail alerting them to that registration. No information collected from persons under 13 years of age is used for any marketing or promotional purposes whatsoever, either inside or outside TeachingValues.com except as explicitly stated during registration for contests or promotions (and in that case, the information collected is used only for the specific contest or promotion).
Although persons under 13 years of age may be allowed to participate in some contests and promotions, if such a person wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parent or guardian identified in the initial registration process. Publication of names, ages, or images for contest winners under 13 require parental or guardian consent.
We do not allow persons under 13 years of age to be listed in our member directory or to receive direct marketing communications from TeachingValues.com or to be sent third-party offers.
USE OF IP ADDRESSES
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers -- the big computers that "serve up" Web pages -- automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
TeachingValues.com collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When Persons request pages from TeachingValues.com sites, our servers log the persons' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.
Some services within TeachingValues.com, such as certain message boards, may display IP addresses along with the message poster's name and message. Please review each service prior to use and only use those that disclose information you are comfortable with sharing.
By showing how and when persons use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users needs.
You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers. TeachingValues.com do not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Users should be aware that when they are on TeachingValues.com, they could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from TeachingValues.com pages that take you outside our service. For example, if you "click" on a banner advertisement or a TeachingValues.com search result, the "click" takes you off the TeachingValues.com site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors, and partners that may use TeachingValues.com or the TeachingValues.com logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information.
Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online --- for example, via message boards or chat --- that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While TeachingValues.com strive to protect their users' personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.
TeachingValues.com's policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond TeachingValues.com's control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our persons is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, TeachingValues.com can't ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
Your TeachingValues.com transaction is password-protected so that only you can access it and view the information relevant to the account. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. TeachingValues.com will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or e-mail. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.
Remember to sign out of TeachingValues.com and close your browser window when you have finished your work or order transaction. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet café.
