Your privacy is very important to me. Accordingly, I have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how I collect, use, communicate and make use of personal information, both on this website and generally.
General Privacy Principle:
I will never divulge your private information or that of my students to an unauthorised third party.
When accessing my website, I will learn certain information about you during your visit.
Similar to other commercial websites, my website utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server logs to collect information about how my website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at my website, and the websites visited just before and just after my website, your IP address and more.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you.
If you choose to correspond with me through email, I may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. I provide the same protections for these electronic communications that I employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone.
How Do I Use the Information That You Provide?
Broadly speaking, I use personal information for purposes of administering my business activities, providing customer service and making available other items and services to my students and their parents.
I will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit my website, unless you choose to provide such information, nor will such information be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection.
I may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when I, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of my legal rights.
A Special Note About Children
Children are not eligible to use my website and services and I ask that minors (under the age of 13) do not submit any personal information. If you are a minor, you can use this site only in conjunction with permission and guidance from your parents or guardians.
How Do I Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, I suggest that you do not send private and personal information to me by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter on my website may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information is never transmitted via email.
I may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of my website, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, I use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
I are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.
