Collection of Personal Information
If you simply visit our web site, we do not capture any personal information from you.
We may collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with the EdSmart sites and services. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring Web site addresses.
When you receive newsletters or promotional e-mail from EdSmart, we may use customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or other information.
If you are a subscriber to the EdSmart Service, we maintain at a minimum the following information:
- Your Name
- Email Address
- Country/Location/Time Zone
We also sometimes will store copies of correspondence between you and us in your subscription and Member record, or elsewhere, to assist us with providing a high level of customer service.
This is the minimum amount of information necessary to properly conduct our subscription systems. We may store other information that you have provided to us in the course of the provision of the EdSmart Service.
Cookies are small pieces of information stored by web sites on your computer. Very many sites use them, for a range of purposes. If you have configured your web browser not to warn about cookies, you probably have quite a few already stored on your hard drive. You must have cookies enabled in your browser in order to use this web site – we use the cookie to track whether you are logged in, and to store your log in details, and these are used to enhance your experience of the site, including making possible the ‘Remember Me’ function.
Sharing of Your Personal Information
Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of EdSmart and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent.
Members of the Service can permit some of their personal information to be shared with other Members via their Personal Profiles.
EdSmart may hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
We may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on EdSmart; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of EdSmart (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Members of EdSmart services or members of the public.
Accessing Your Personal Information
We give you the right to access the information we maintain about you, and to change it if necessary. You are able to access the key information simply by logging into the web site and Service, and can change most items yourself.
If you wish to see the entirety of the information in your member record, please contact us and we will arrange a copy. If you wish to update or correct any part of the information, please advise us and we will make the changes as quickly as possible.
Security of Your Personal Information
EdSmart is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving the Service to protect access to your information from subsequent Members.
When using EdSmart minimal personal data is processed outside the EEC in the MS Azure Australia cloud platform. This processing of data has been assessed for adequacy of protection as required by the UK Data Protection Act and adjudged to be providing the required level of data protection as specified by the EU Data Protection guidelines and the UK Data Protection Act
Deletion of Old Information
If you advise us that you no longer require your membership, our standard procedure is to delete your record from the subscription database, thus destroying the personal information we maintain about you.
Personal Information for Marketing Purposes
On occasion EdSmart conducts marketing campaigns involving email, direct mail letters and other marketing tools, using mailing list databases. If we send you a letter or otherwise contact you, and you decide you do not wish to receive further communication from us, we will remove you from the marketing database.
We may use your personal information to send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements.
If you have any questions about this Privacy Statement, the Service or your dealings with EdSmart, please contact us.
EdSmart reserves the right to modify this Statement, and other policies associated with EdSmart. EdSmart will give 30 days notice of any proposed amendment, and notify subscribers via the web site and email bulletins.
