Privacy policy

First Amendment Schools is committed to protecting the privacy of our registered members and visitors. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. This policy is effective May 1, 2004.

What information do you capture online?

We only collect the contact information visitors choose to provide us with, including name, mailing address and e-mail address.

Will you rent, sell, or trade my e-mail address to a third party?

No, First Amendment Schools will not rent, sell, or trade your e-mail address to a third party. If you choose to submit your e-mail address or any other information on this Web site, it will only be used by First Amendment Schools to contact you about services and news that you have specifically requested to receive. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide a way to opt-out of these e-mails by following the instructions included at the bottom of each e-mail.

Will you rent, sell, or trade my name and postal address to another organization?

No, First Amendment Schools does not make its members' names and addresses available to other organizations.

Do you share any other personal information with third parties?

No, we will never share your personal information with a third party. However, we do share aggregated demographic information with our partners. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information.

Our site does feature links to other Web sites not owned, controlled or affiliated with our organization, but we are not responsible for the privacy practices or material provided by other sites.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of information that your browser stores on your computer's hard drive. Cookies do not hold any personal information, but they allow us to remember passwords and store user’s site preferences.

How do you use cookies?

If you choose not to accept any cookies on the site, you will still be able to use all the features of the site. You may, however, need to provide login information during each visit.

Do you track site usage and traffic patterns?

Yes. By monitoring traffic patterns we learn which links and pages of the site users access most. We monitor the following variables:

  • The total number of visitors to our Web site.
  • The pages visited.
  • How long visitors remained on the site.
  • The domain name and IP address from which visitors are connecting.
  • Type and version of Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Netscape.

In addition to types of browsers, the information collected through these scripts includes available plug-ins, platforms (Windows, Macintosh, etc.), connection speeds and monitor resolutions. We store this information in an aggregate format only. We use this information to further develop the features and functionality of the site and, hopefully, enhance your online experience.

How will I know if your privacy policy changes?

If there are changes to our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
