This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally identifiable information' (PII) is being used online.  PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

What information do we collect?

Information regarding name, email address, and employer, is collected when one requests a free account for the site or fills out the contact form.  For those with subscriptions to the site for premium reports or downloads - name and email address is collected.

When do we collect information?

We collect information from you when you request a free account, order a subscription or request access for others regarding a subscription at your district, or fill out the contact form.  For free accounts and the contact form, the information collected via the forms is not stored on the web server, but instead emailed to Matt Freund who uses it to review accounts.  After the application process is finished the email is deleted.  Also, user information is collected when files are downloaded.

How do we use your information?

The information is used to verify new accounts, used for site login and account information, and used in download logs to record who downloaded a file.   Your email address is used as your site username and your name is added to the account information.   Each user though can change the name and contact email on the account.

How do we protect visitor information?

We do not use vulnerability scanning and/or scanning to PCI standards.   We use an SSL certificate and we implement security measures when a user enters, submits, or accesses their information.  Such information can only be accessed by those authorized with special access rights.

Do we use 'cookies'?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.  When you first visit this site you will be presented with a prompt to Accept or Decline cookies.  If you accept cookies, you will be able to login to the site if you have an account.  If you decline cookies, you will not be able to login or submit forms on the site.  At the bottom of each page will be an area where you can remove cookies from this site or reconsider your choice on accepting or declining cookies.

Third Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer Personally Identifiable Information.

Third party links

We do not include or offer third party products or services on our website.  However, there are links to some other sites and the information practices of those Web sites are not covered by this privacy policy, but by their own terms and policies, which you should read carefully.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy.  See more at:

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.   Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.   Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.  Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy Page.  Users are able to change their personal information by logging in to their account.

How does our site handle do not track signals?

We honor do not track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

It's also important to note that we do not allow third party behavioral tracking.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nations consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect childrens privacy and safety online.   We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.  In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:  We will notify the users via email within 1 business day.

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
