This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices of Ed100.org.
Information Users Provide Directly: Ed100 collects information directly from users users in several ways, including information they enter in their Profile, such as name, email address, display name and school.
Information Users Provide Indirectly: In addition, as users read and complete lessons and posts, Ed100 automatically collects information from users about their progress. Ed100 also keeps track when users share lessons or comments. This information is collected through the use of web forms, cookies, and other methods.
Information Users Post on the Website: Users may add comments to lesson pages or blog posts. Information provided through comments on lessons or blog posts is visible to all site visitors (including those not signed in as members of the Ed100 community), so users are cautioned to make their comments with this in mind.
Ed100 uses data to personalize the user experience, for example by highlighting lessons the user has not yet completed, shared, or commented on. Users may qualify for contests or drawings based on information about their completion of lessons, blogs and other interaction. (See contest rules for details. No purchase required.)
Ed100 uses data to help form and support user groups, including school groups, district groups, and ad-hoc groups. Ed100 uses data to understand and analyze individual and aggregate usage of the service. User comments on lessons and posts are moderated; Ed100 reserves the right to use, discard or modify them. Ed100 is a community of learners, and civility is expected.
Ed100 may email registered users with updates about Ed100, as well as about products and services that Ed100 believes may be of interest to users. Users that wish to opt out of receiving these emails from Ed100, can follow the instructions contained in each email they receive from Ed100 which will allow the user to opt out of receiving further communications from Ed100.
Each user's public profile may be visible to other users of Ed100. The public profile includes the "display name" that the user sets for public use, accomplishments such as the user's progress through the lessons, and information about the schools, districts, organizations and Ed100 study groups with which that user is associated. The public profile does not disclose contact information.
Ed100 uses third-party vendors to provide services related to Ed100, such as sending email messages to subscribers. The information that a user submits on the site will be provided to these vendors so that we may send Ed100 communications to users. Ed100 may also use third-party media measurement services to develop and analyze audience metrics, including the use of surveys. Ed100 may share user contact and site usage information with nonprofit organizations including the California state PTA.
To the extent permitted by law, Ed100 will disclose user information to government authorities or third parties if: (i) required to do so by law, or in response to a subpoena or court order; (ii) Ed100 believes in our sole discretion that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect against fraud, to protect the property or other rights of us or other users, third parties or the public at large; or (iii) Ed100 believes that you have abused the web site by using it to attack other systems or to gain unauthorized access to any other system, to engage in spamming or otherwise to violate applicable laws. Following disclosure to any third party, user information may be accessible by others to the extent permitted or required by applicable law.
The settings on users’ browsers may be adjusted so that “do not track” requests are sent to the web sites that they visit. However, because the major features of Ed100 require user data to function, Ed100 will not disable tracking technology that may be active on the web site in response to any “do not track” requests that Ed100 receives from users’ browsers. However, most lessons and blog posts may be viewed without signing in.
The website is not intended for children under age 13. Ed100 does not knowingly collect or distribute personal information from or about children under the age of 13.
