This Statement covers only data collected through the Services and not any other data collection or processing, including, without limitation, data collection practices of webpages to which the Services link, or data that we or our affiliates collect offline or through webpages that do not display a direct link to this Statement.
By accessing the Services, you acknowledge notice of this Statement and agree with and acknowledge the terms, conditions and responsibilities as set out below.
Types of Data and Collection Methods
We receive data that you actively submit through the Services (‘Data”) as described below.
When you request information or otherwise actively send us Data through the disruptED public Web site (“actively submitted data”), we collect Data such as name, e-mail address(es), telephone number(s), and company name. You can opt-out of providing information by not entering it when asked and, if such information is required in order to allow us to respond to your inquiry, you will receive a notice advising you of this. When you submit Data via the Services, you will know what Data we collect through the Services, because you actively submit it.
Additionally, when you visit the disruptED public Web site(s), we also passively track information on your computer and Internet connection, such as the IP address of your computer and/or Internet service provider, the date and time you access the Web site(s), the Internet address of Web sites from which you link to our Services, the computer technology you are using and your movements and preferences on our Web site(s).
Unless you also actively submit personal information such as your name or address, passively tracked data does not typically allow us to identify you personally (even though it can theoretically be done, we do not have the means or an interest to find out who you are, unless you identify yourself voluntarily through an active submission of data). To the extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to combine passively tracked Data with personal Data that you actively submit.
Collection Purposes and Use of Data
We collect Data that is passively tracked via our Services primarily for purposes of administering, protecting and improving our Services, to better understand the preferences of our Visitors, to identify server problems, to compile aggregated statistics about site usage, and to help personalize your experience on our Services. We do not deliver third party online advertisements on our sites but we may advertise our products and services on others’ Web site.
disruptED may also use Data you voluntarily provide to perform the services you requested. For example, if you fill out a “Contact Me” Web form, we will use the information provided to contact you about your interest in the Services.
