Effective Date: January 12, 2013
This GetTeacherED.com privacy statement (this “Policy”) covers the website GetTeacherED.com (the “Site”) and is applicable to all information about you (“you”) collected through the Site (“Information”). In this Policy, GetTeacherED.com (“GetTeacherED” “we,” “us,” or “our”) discloses the Information collection and usage practices applicable to the Site. This Policy describes the types of information that GetTeacherED gathers from you and the other people who visit the Site (the “Users”) and how we may use that Information. By providing any information, you agree to our use of that information consistent with this Policy. Please read this Policy carefully before providing us with any Information.
Personally Identifiable Information
All Users have the option of providing various types of personally identifiable Information to us through the Site. For example, you may choose to provide us your personally identifiable Information, including, but not limited to, your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, or age. We collect this personally identifiable Information when you, at any point, manually enter it into any online form available on the Site. We may store a cookie file on your hard drive so that our systems will recognize you each time you visit the Site. In that way, we can save your preferences from visit to visit and present you with a customized version of the Site without requiring you to log into the Site every time you visit. We may store your personally identifiable Information in our systems for use in other ways as described in this Policy. In order for you to take full advantage of the Site, we encourage you to provide your personally identifiable Information to us. Providing your personally identifiable Information is, however, voluntary. You may choose not to provide us with your personally identifiable Information by simply not entering it on the Site. Although you will still have access to the Site even if you do not provide us with your personally identifiable Information, you should understand that you will not be able to use certain services or features available through the Site that require you to enter your personally identifiable Information in order to function. If you do not input any of your personally identifiable Information, then the Information we collect from you is limited. For example, we log your IP address to help us diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Site, and to track usage statistics. Your IP address may vary each time you visit, or it may be the same, depending on whether you access the Site through an always-on type of Internet connection (such as cable or DSL), or through a dial-up connection. Either way, it would be very difficult for us to identify you personally through your IP address. If you reach the Site by clicking on a link or ad from another website, then we may also log that Information. This helps us to maximize our Internet exposure and to understand the interests of our Users. All of this Information is collected and used only in aggregated form; that is, it is entered into our database, where we can use it to generate overall anonymous reports on our Users.
GetTeacherED Policy Regarding Children Under the Age of 13
The Site is not intended for children under the age of 13, and GetTeacherED does not knowingly collect or use personally identifiable Information from children under the age of 13.
How We Use the Information We Collect
We use the Information you provide us for mutual benefits. We may aggregate personal information from all of our users and provide that information in the aggregate to other parties, including advertisers, for marketing and promotional purposes. However, if we do so, that information will not be in a way that will allow any third party to identify you personally.
By submitting your information on the site, you consent to receive autodialed and/or pre-recorded telemarketing calls, emails, text messages from or on behalf of GetTeacherEd and its affiliates and partners at the telephone number provided by you on the site.
Note: GetTeacherED does not sell or rent any personally identifiable Information to any third party other than our learning institution affiliates or any acquirer, as discussed in this policy.
Consent to the Use of Third Party Providers
Please understand that GetTeacherED may contract with other third parties to provide various services to GetTeacherED relating to the Site on an outsourced basis rather than performing the services itself. For example, we may contract with an email provider to handle the distribution of email messages to Users of the Site. Likewise, we may contract with a website hosting provider to host the Site for us. By visiting the Site, all Users consent to GetTeacherED providing all Information (whether or not personally identifiable) received or collected from those Users to such third-party providers for the purpose of enabling the third-party provider to provide these outsourced services to us. In addition, all Users consent to the collection, maintenance, and processing of their Information (whether or not personally identifiable) by GetTeacherED and these third-party providers. Third parties will protect your information as GetTeacherED would, under the terms of this policy.
This privacy statement describes GetTeacherED’s potential uses of your information. If you do not agree to our potential uses of your personally identifiable Information as we have described for you, you are not required to provide that information to us. In addition, you may opt out of receiving advertising and promotional emails from us simply by responding to the opt-out email link provided on all email communications from GetTeacherED. You cannot opt out of receiving administrative emails from us. You also may cancel or correct your personal information at any time. You can do this by emailing us at info@GetTeacherED.com with your User Name and the notice “My Information” in the subject field of the email. We will send you an email to confirm your request. After we receive confirmation from you, we will correct or remove your information from the active database, but some information may remain in our archives.
Surveys and Contests
From time to time our Site may request information from Users via emailed surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the User, therefore, has a choice whether or not to disclose personally identifiable Information. The requested Information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact Information will be shared with the contest or survey sponsors to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey Information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the Site. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests, these intermediaries will not use the User’s personally identifiable Information for any secondary purposes. You may opt out of receiving emailed surveys or contests from us simply by responding to the opt-out email link provided on all email communications from us.
Other Websites; Links
Please be aware that GetTeacherED’s affiliated learning institutions, promotional partners, advertisers, sponsors, and other third-party websites accessible through the Site may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. GetTeacherED is not responsible for any actions, website content, or privacy policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing personally identifiable Information through linked websites.
