Privacy Statement

Safeguarding the private information of our visitors and authorized users is a top priority for Learners Online. The purpose of this statement is to inform users about the information we gather and store on our systems, as well as our policies regarding the information we collect.

The Information We Collect

Visitors

Visitors may access the public WebLessons™ site without disclosing any personal information. Visitors who choose to access sample lessons or Instructor's guides—otherwise reserved for authorized users—may be asked to voluntarily share their contact information for follow-up by our internal sales staff. Such information is used strictly for customer relationship management by Learners Online and its official affiliates, and is not shared with any third party.

Authorized Users (Subscribers)

Authorized users of WebLessons™ include school officials, teachers, students, and others who are granted password-protected access to the WebLessons™ e-learning system and instructional materials. Our policy is to collect the minimum amount of personally identifiable information necessary according to the functionality of the system. Such functionality includes:

  • Creation of an administer profile
  • Setup of a school or district account
  • Creation of a teacher profile
  • Setup of a classroom in the system
  • Creation of student profiles
  • Teacher review of student progress and achievement
  • Statistical analysis and administrative review of site usage
  • Setup of trial or preview accounts

Personally identifiable information needed to complete these functions varies from one user type to the next, but may include first and last name, email address, grade level, and school and district name, and state. Other personally identifiable information related to user accounts are not available online.

Learners Online will never sell or share any user information to any third party, except as compelled by a court of competent jurisdiction, and upon notification to the user, if approved by said court.

COPPA Compliance

Learners Online is in full compliance with the statutes and requirements of Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA).

According to the design of WebLessons™, student profiles may include first and last name, but this is not a system requirement. Schools may, in accordance with their own student information policies, substitute student initials, aliases, or ID numbers. No student contact information (such as a school or public email address) is included in the profile, and no other system user except the teacher has the ability to make direct contact with his or her own students.

WebLessons™ is accessible from any Web browser. Parents have the right and ability to sign in using their child's username and password to review their child's profile and completed work. Parents have the right to ask their child's teacher or school administrator to amend or remove the child's profile; in all such cases, we require school officials to do so.

Data Security

Learners Online is concerned about the security of personal information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Cookies

WebLessons™ uses cookies to temporarily store session information while an authorized user is signed in. When users sign off or exit the browser the cookie is cleared. These cookies only affect the functionality of the online system and do not contain any personally identifiable information or system information.

Your Acceptance of These Terms

By using this Web site you agree to the terms outlined in this privacy statement. Any changes to our privacy policy will be immediately reflected in this statement. Your continued use of this site following the posting of any changes to this privacy statement constitute your acceptance of those changes.
