Information Collection and Use

It is the Company's policy to respect the privacy of both users of its online education services and visitors to the Company's Web sites and portals.

These Sites may require certain information from users and visitors during the registration process, such as name, institution or organization name, and email address. In addition, the Company collects information when you navigate through the Sites and complete course sections, tests, and surveys, and enter contests.

Outside The Classroom collects two main types of information through its Web sites and online services:

  1. Standard Web server/visitor traffic information (commonly referred to as "aggregate information") regarding overall Web site traffic patterns. Normally, Web servers collect this type of basic information automatically as part of their Web log processes.

  2. Personal or "individually identifiable" information that you provide to us when participating in one of our online courses or to process information requests.

Aggregate Information

Like almost all Web sites, our Sites automatically track some general, but not personal information about where people go on our Sites. We may also maintain records of the movements of visitors anonymously. For example, we may see and record the fact that a visitor has moved from the home page to the survey page without explicitly disclosing the identity of that visitor. That tracking helps us improve the design and content of our Site to provide better information and service.

As with many Web sites, your IP number is visible to us when you visit our Sites. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are connected to the Internet. The Company will only use IP addresses when you sign up for the services or to help diagnose problems with our server.

Individually Identifiable

Corporate Web Site
In general, we ask visitors for personal data in order to respond to a visitor's requests for information. The Company may ask visitors to provide demographic or personal preference data. If visitors elect to provide such data, we may use it to analyze the characteristics of visitors to our Web site. We aggregate information on what pages visitors have accessed and other information volunteered by the visitor, such as survey or contact information.

For individuals who register and take our E-commerce online course through our http://www.outsidetheclassroom.com Web site, the Company collects the following information: registration information, survey data, and test results. This information is used in the same manner as for our other online service users, as described in the following paragraphs. Note: Credit card information and payments for our E-commerce online course are collected and processed by a third-party site managed by Verisign. We do not collect or store any credit card information on our servers.

Online Services
The Company collects specific data for users of our services (at http://college.alcoholedu.com, http://sanctions.alcoholedu.com, http://parents.alcoholedu.com, and http://www.mentalhealthedu.com), including registration information, survey data, and test results, if applicable. The Company uses such information to customize the specific information to better meet users' needs and to provide technical support. The Company shares only the individuals' progress through the course and test results, if applicable, with the users' institution or organization.

Student users should be aware that no information will be provided to the user's institution or organization other than: 1) the fact the user completed the course(s); 2) the user's progress through the course; 3) the user's AlcoholEdu Exam score; 4) the user's email address; 5) the user's Student ID or other identifying tag (only at institutions requesting use of such identifiers); and 6) any additional aggregate or blinded data the user's institution or organization may request.

Parent users should be aware that no information will be provided to the institution or organization other than 1) the fact the user completed the course; 2) the user's progress through the course; 3) the user's email address; and 4) any additional aggregate or blinded data the institution or organization may request.

Campus faculty and staff users should be aware that no information will be provided to the user's institution or organization other than 1) the user's name; 2) the user's progress through the course; and 3) any additional aggregate or blinded data available to the institution. The Company may share aggregate, blinded information about the users with the institution.

Outside The Classroom's online administrative site, the AlcoholEdu Hub, provides password-protected access to each institution's or organization's AlcoholEdu account information, including administrator email addresses, course Login IDs, and account set-up information. In addition, the AlcoholEdu Hub provides administrators with the following information about their student users: 1) the fact the user completed the course; 2) the user's progress through the course; 3) the user's AlcoholEdu Exam score; 4) the user's email address; and 5) the user's Student ID or other identifying tag (only at institutions requesting use of such identifiers).

Outside The Classroom offers one Web site, Alcohol Innerview (http://www.alcoholinnerview.com), which allows a user to receive feedback on personal information that s/he responded to in the survey; these responses are not stored or shared with the institution. Additionally, if a user logs out in the middle of Alcohol Innerview, the responses will not be saved and the user's progress will not be stored.

Our Commitment To Children's Privacy
Outside The Classroom maintains two Web sites that may request information from children under 13 years old. Both sites are designed to provide alcohol prevention courses for high school populations. The site are located at: http://highschool.alcoholedu.com and http://youth.alcoholedu.com.

Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our Web site from those we actually know are under 13. Written parental permission submitted to the institution's administrator is required for anyone under 13 who wishes to use any Company online courses.

The information collected by these two sites includes name (optional), birth month and year, username, password, survey data (only at http://highschool.alcoholedu.com), and test results. Parents and students should be aware that the only individual data shared with the user's institution or organization is the user's progress through the course and test results.

Survey/Test Data
From time to time, the Company may share with third parties, including the users' institution or organization, aggregate information about users of the service, such as how many of our users are men. Any survey or test data provided by users will be blinded before being provided to their institution or organization or any other third party. "Blinded" means that the Company will extract all personally identifiable information from the data, including names, student email addresses, Login IDs, etc.

The Company will never sell, barter, or trade any personal information obtained from you unless: 1) you provide us with your consent to do so or 2) the Company is required to disclose information to respond to a subpoena, court order, or other legal process.

Use of Cookies
