Privacy Policy

Charter School Tools LLC ("Charter School Tools", "we", "us" or "our") thanks you for visiting our website. Please review this Privacy Policy (the "Policy") for our website, (the "Site"). By using this Site, you accept this Privacy Policy.

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time. We will notify you of changes by posting the revised Privacy Policy on this Site, so we recommend that you periodically review the Privacy Policy to learn of any changes. All amended terms of this Policy are automatically effective when they are posted on this Site unless otherwise stated, but in all cases, such changes will only apply prospectively. If you use this Site after the effective date of the revised Privacy Policy, you have accepted the revised Privacy Policy.

What Kind of Information Does Charter School Tools Collect?
Charter School Tools may collect personal information about you as well as non-personal information about you and your visit when you access our Site. The "Personal Information" we might collect includes, but may not be limited to, your name, phone number(s), postal or e-mail address, and payment information. "Non-Personal Information" includes aggregated data, anonymized information or other information that does not identify a particular person. We may collect Non-Personal Information that you provide voluntarily, such as organization and job position, or through operation of this Site (as outlined in more detail below), such as browsing and datalog information including the domain name of the site providing you with Internet access, the Internet protocol (IP) address you used to connect to the Internet, your browser type and version, the operating system your computer is running and other data such as the pages you view, information for which you search, and the average time spent on the Site. Some of this Non-Personal Information may be tracked through log files, which are stored on Charter School Tools' or our web vendor's servers. Under some certain circumstances, Non-Personal Information may become Personal Information when combined with Personal Information.

We may generate anonymized or aggregated information from the information we collect. Our collection, use and disclosure of anonymized and aggregated information are not subject to any of the restrictions in this Privacy Policy.

How We Collect Information About You.
You can navigate our Site without giving us Personal Information, but certain activities will require submission of Personal and Non-Personal Information. For example, we collect certain Personal Information if you communicate with us directly via e-mail, if you submit a request for a third-party vendor to contact you or if you download documents or information using the download functionality of our Site. To the extent we offer certain features such as a blog, job or message board, forum, or survey information and/or site registration, we, or a third-party service provider, may collect Personal Information submitted by you to access such features.

Charter School Tools may use technologies to supplement the information we have about your use of the Site and to learn about your visit.
A "cookie" (including without limitation confirmation pixels for crediting affiliate marketers or for other purposes) is a small file that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie allows Charter School Tools to determine that a visit has occurred within our Site, as well as which pages were viewed. Cookies are not used for identification purposes and will not collect Personal Information. You are free to decline our cookies if your web browser permits. If you choose to decline cookies, it is possible that some of the functionality of the Site may be impaired.

Web beacons, also known as "clear gifs" and "web bugs," may allow us to recognize a cookie on your computer when you view a web page or e-mail. These electronic images, which do not collect Personal Information, help us measure the effectiveness of any online advertising we may provide and/or e-mail distributions by, for example, counting the number of individuals who visit our Site or the number of individuals who open or click through on an e-mail message.

"Passive automatic electronic collection" involves the collection and logging of information automatically, either directly or through a third-party service provider, as part of the operation of this Site. For example, we collect your IP address, the name and location of your Internet Service Provider, the type and version of your browser, length of time you visit our Site, your search queries on the Site and the average number of pages you viewed. Logging your IP address does not itself provide Personal Information. We use this log information for management of our systems and for technical troubleshooting. We may also use this information to gather general demographic information about Site users.

  • To correspond with you
  • To provide the services/products we offer
  • To manage our interactive community
  • To protect the security of visitors and users of our Site
  • To detect fraud
We use anonymized or aggregated information to improve our services, to measure the effectiveness of our Site, and to improve and enhance visitors' experiences on this Site. We also may merge information received about you from third parties with information that you have provided to us.

We use the Non-Personal Information collected about Site visits in the aggregate to better understand the characteristics of the broad audience that is using our Site or requesting or submitting information. This information enables us to increase the functionality and easy of use of our Site, and better target the Site to our visitors' needs.

Any communication you submit via a publicly available feature of the Site, such as a blog, message board, forum, survey or a review feature or similar functions is a public communication and may be viewed by the general public. If you share your Personal Information in any communication submitted to such publicly available features, other individuals or users may collect and use your Personal Information. You have no expectation of privacy or confidentiality in any content you submit to such publicly accessible features, whether or not it contains Personal Information about you. We are not responsible for, nor can we ensure the protection of, any Personal Information you disclose in a communication submitted for posting in publicly accessible features of this Site, so disclosure of any Personal Information in any such manner is done at your own risk.

We may display advertisements and/or links to third party sites. As described in greater detail below, by clicking on these advertisements or links, you may be taken to third-party sites and you are then subject to the privacy policies of those sites and not this Site.

When Do We Disclose Personal Information?
We may share personal information, if any, about you with other companies, individuals, nonprofit organizations, law enforcement or government agencies as follows:
  • When we have your consent.
  • When it is necessary or convenient to provide a product, service or information you have ordered or requested. This includes providing it to companies who work on behalf of Charter School Tools to provide a product or service to you.
  • If we believe that your actions on our Site violate or may violate our User Agreement, Privacy Policy or any agreement or policies regarding a specific service or product you order.
  • To respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process or when we believe disclosure is otherwise required or authorized by law or is necessary to prevent imminent danger of death or physical harm to you or others.
  • To investigate and/or respond to illegal activity, fraud, abuse or unauthorized reception.
  • Under any other circumstances that we describe to you before or at the time we obtain the information.
  • Charter School Tools reserves the right to transfer any and all information that we collect from visitors, or that we otherwise collect in connection with the Site, to a third party in the event of a sale or other transfer of assets or of any portion of our business.
How Do We Protect Personal Information Collected on this Site?
Charter School Tools takes reasonable industry-standard precautions to protect your Personal Information in our possession from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, or disclosure. No data transmission over the Internet, however, can be guaranteed to be 100% error free or secure. Although we follow commercially reasonable practices to securely store the information we collect and to work with responsible third parties, we cannot guarantee these practices will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use or disclose such information.

How Long Do We Keep Information?
Charter School Tools may retain Personal Information and other information collected through the Site for as long as is reasonable for the purposes for which it was collected or longer in accordance with legal or prudent business practices.

What Websites Does This Policy Cover?
This Privacy Policy applies only to the Site, which is owned and operated by Charter School Tools LLC. Charter School Tools' advertisers or third party service provider sites to which you link may collect personal or non-personal information about you. For example, we may contract with third party service providers to offer a variety of features (e.g., job boards, blogs), which service providers have their own privacy policies and terms of use. The practices of such advertisers and third party service providers are not covered by this Policy; after you leave this Site, information you disclose or information that such other website collects is subject to that website's privacy policy and terms of use. Charter School Tools is not responsible for advertisers' or its service providers' collection, use or disclosure of information, so we recommend you read the privacy policy and terms of use of every website you visit.

Is the Site Intended for Use by Children?
No. The Charter School Tools Site is a general information site and is not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information on anyone under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have received Personal Information of a child under the age of 13, we will delete the information from our records.
