Our Policy recognizes that personal data deserves the highest level of protection. Personally-Identifiable Information includes, for example, e-mail addresses, names and addresses of members, and “click stream” data that tracks user activity on a Web site or online service.
LessonPlans.com is committed to using all reasonable efforts to abide by the following Policy statement:
Collection. Personally-Identifiable Information will only be collected to the extent that LessonPlans.com deems reasonably necessary to serve a legitimate purpose. Please be aware that if you disclose Personally-Identifiable Information on a Website message boards or chat areas or lesson submission forms, that information may be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited communications from third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of LessonPlans.com.
Notification. Members will be notified (usually at the point where Personally-Identifiable Information is collected) as to the uses the business unit may make of the Personally-Identifiable Information collected from them.
Choice: Opt Out for External Distribution of Personally-Identifiable Information. All members will be given the opportunity to refuse permission for External Distribution of their name, address or other Personally-Identifiable Information through an Opt Out mechanism. (External Distribution does not include certain limited distributions such as sharing Personally-Identifiable Information with an entity working on behalf of LessonPlans.com to serve our customers; transfer of Personally-Identifiable Information in conjunction with the sale or similar transfer of a business unit; or the disclosure of Personally-Identifiable Information in connection with legal proceedings, investigations of crimes or other wrongdoing. However, sharing Personally-Identifiable Information with an entity working on behalf of LessonPlans.com or transferring Personally-Identifiable Information in conjunction with the sale or similar transfer of a business unit is considered an Onward Transfer and will be handled as described below.
Security. Appropriate safeguards will be implemented to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of Personally-Identifiable Information about our members.
Access: Review and correction procedures have been developed through which members can, upon request, review and correct the Personally-Identifiable Information that has been collected from them by LessonPlans.com. These procedures may not, however, compromise the security, integrity and privacy of either LessonPlans.com’s own proprietary databases or databases licensed from third party companies.
Onward Transfer. Whenever LessonPlans.com permits a third party outside of LessonPlans.com to access Personally-Identifiable Information through either External Distribution or Onward Transfer, commercially appropriate procedures will be followed to help ensure that the Information is used only for authorized purposes and by authorized persons in a manner consistent with the choices members have made under this Policy, and that the security, integrity and privacy of the information is maintained. Please note that our Website may contain links to other Websites that have their own privacy policies and practices. While LessonPlans.com will employ appropriate procedures to help ensure that your information is only used for authorized purposes as described above, LessonPlans.com cannot make any guarantees with respect to the actions or policies of such third parties.
To ensure that we follow our stated Policy, we conduct periodic and random reviews of our Web site and services.
