Personal Information We Collect:
When you visit our Websites, we may collect certain information that identifies or reasonably relates to a specific person or household, or that is otherwise defined as personal information, personal data, or protected data under applicable laws (“Personal Information”).
In some cases, we collect this Personal Information only when you choose to provide it. For example, if you request information about our education products, ask a question of our customer support team, or subscribe to our blog or newsletter, we will ask you to provide certain Personal Information so that we may respond to your request. This may include information such as your first and last name, job title, school name, email address, state, and where relevant, the product or service you are interested in.
If you choose to apply for a job with Edmentum through our Websites, we might collect your name, address, email address, phone number, employment history, and salary needs.
In addition, we may collect similar Personal Information about you from third parties such as advertising networks, data brokers, and social media platforms.
If you choose to make a donation to our nonprofit foundation, you may choose to provide us with your name and contact information as well as the amount of your donation. Your credit card information or other financial account details are not processed by us but by our third party payment processing provider.
A Note About Children
Our Websites are intended for general audiences, and not for individuals under the age of 13 or otherwise under the age of consent in each region in which we operate (“children,” “child”). We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children. Should we learn that we have inadvertently collected Personal Information from a child, we will take steps to promptly delete it.
Usage Information and Cookies
When you access our Websites, our servers automatically collect the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address associated with your computer. We may also collect additional information such as the device ID, browser type and version, the operating system of your device and language, country, the URL of the website you visited before reaching one of our Websites, what you click on while visiting our Websites, the time you spend on our Websites, as well as areas in the Websites you visit most frequently and when (“Usage Information”).
We use this information to help us administer the Websites, provide you with a personalized experience and remember your preferences, monitor the security of the Websites, diagnose technical problems, and for our marketing purposes. We also analyze the information for aggregate trends about how our Websites are used and to help improve our Websites.
To collect Usage Information, we use the following technologies:
- Cookies. Cookies are small data files sent by a website and stored on the computer or device at the request of that site. Cookies store information related to a user's browser to enable us to recognize the browser on return visits to our Websites and to remember your preferences.
- Pixel tags. A pixel tag (also referred to as a “clear gif” or “web beacon”) allows us to track the online usage patterns of the Websites and to understand which links are clicked. When we send you emails, pixel tags also allow us to track which emails are opened.
- HTML5 Storage. HTML5 storage or local storage allows us to distinguish your device from others and to remember information that might be important for the functioning of the Websites, such as to remember your location preference or your logged in state. Typically, HTML5 storage is only deleted if all Internet history, cache, and cookies are deleted. Check your browser controls for information on how to delete your HTML5 storage.
- Clicktracking. Clicktracking allows us to collect “clickstream data” about your visit to our Websites. This includes information about what you click on when you visit our Websites and how you interacted with certain features. This might also include the order in which you click on buttons or links on a Website page, which could allow us to develop insights about how you use our Websites and your interests in relation to our Websites.
Third Party Cookies and Tracking
We use third-party service providers to help us to collect and understand Usage Information, for marketing and remarketing purposes, including to serve advertising. Most browsers can be set to detect browser cookies and to let you reject them, but if you do so, you may not be able to access all features and functionalities of the Websites.
We do not serve targeted advertising on our Websites. However, when you use the Internet, we and our third parties, as well as unaffiliated third parties including ad networks, website analytics companies, and social networking platforms, may use tracking technologies, including those described above, to collect information about your online activities over time and across our and unrelated websites. We and they may use this information to measure the effectiveness of our advertising and to target advertisements for products and services that may interest you.
As with most websites, we do not honor “do not track” (“DNT”) signals transmitted by web browsers as there is no industry standard for implementing such programs. For more information about third-party advertisers and how to prevent them from using your information, visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices, http://www.aboutads.info/choices, or http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk. If you do want to opt out using these tools, you will need to opt out separately for each of your devices and for each web browser (such as Chrome, Edge Firefox, Safari or others) that you use on each device.
To find out more about DNT, please visit http://allaboutdnt.com. Note that DNT is different than the Global Privacy Control (GPC), which we do respond to in certain territories, as applicable. To find out more about GPC, please visit https://globalprivacycontrol.org.

Third Party Links and Social Media:
Our Websites may contain links to unaffiliated third party websites, including social networking websites via links, plug ins, and widgets. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement of that website and does not represent any affiliation with that website. We do not control third party websites or their privacy practices, and do not have any influence on how those third party websites may operate.
These plug ins and widgets may provide information to their associated social networks or third parties about your interactions with pages that you visit on our Websites, even if you do not click on or otherwise interact with the plug in or widget. Information is transmitted from your browser and may include an identifier assigned by the social network or third party, information about your browser type, operating system, device type, IP address, the URL of the web page where the widget appears, and other information as determined by the social network or third party. We encourage you to read the privacy policies and other legal terms of other websites you visit.
We implement physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to help protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your Personal Information. We host Personal Information in secure, cloud-based environments that use firewalls, encryption and other industry-standard technologies in an effort to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. The Internet, however, is not perfectly secure and we are not responsible for security breaches not reasonably within our control.
We only retain personal information as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is processed, or to comply with legal and regulatory retention requirements. Legal and regulatory retention requirements may include retaining information for: audit and accounting purposes, statutory retention terms; the handling of disputes; and the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims in the countries where we do business. We retain contractual relationship information for administrative purposes, legal and regulatory retention requirements, defending Edmentum’s rights, and to manage Edmentum’s relationship with you.
