Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us.

Introduction. The teen-safe.org website collects information in different ways from Clients, Users, and Visitors who access the various parts of our Services and web site accessible through our Service.

This Privacy Policy describes how teen-safe.org collects information from end users of our Internet Services (the “Service”) – those who access some of our Services but do not register (“Visitors”), those who register (Users), and those schools or other organizations who help organize the use of the Service (“Clients”) – what we do with the information we collect, and the choices Visitors, Users and Clients have concerning the collection and use of such information. We request that you read this Privacy Policy carefully.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

Registration. Users may be asked to provide certain personal information in order to provide verification of course completion, including name(s), student(s) names, name of student’s school (Client), gender, email address, address, quiz score, time spent at teen-safe.org and the type of personal computer being used to access the Services.

Responses to Email Inquiries. When Visitors, Users or Clients send email inquiries to our company, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive.

Voluntary Surveys. We may periodically conduct Visitor, User or Client surveys. We encourage users to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of products and services we offer and how we provide them to you.

We may take the information we receive from individual responders to our surveys and combine (or aggregate) these with responses of other responders we may have, to create broader, generic response to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be shared with third parties.

This information is automatically logged by most websites.
