Privacy Policy

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 described 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.

Third-party disclosure

Third-party links

The only third-party service provider we use is Google Analytics to help us improve your website experience. 


Google Analytics and Anonymous Data

We utilize Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), to collect and analyze anonymous data about the usage of our website. Google Analytics uses cookies and similar technologies to gather information such as your IP address, browser type, device information, and website interactions. This information is transmitted to Google’s servers and processed to generate reports on website activity for us.

The data collected through Google Analytics is used solely for analytical purposes, helping us understand user behavior, improve website functionality, and enhance user experience. We do not merge or associate this data with any personally identifiable information collected on our website.

Google Analytics follows Google’s Privacy Policy, which you can review at Google’s Privacy Policy outlines how they collect, use, and protect data, including how they use cookies, and your options for managing your privacy preferences related to their services.

If you wish to opt-out of Google Analytics tracking, you can do so by installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. The add-on is available for various browsers and prevents your data from being used by Google Analytics when you visit websites that use this service.

Please note that Google Analytics is a third-party service provider, and their collection and use of data are governed by their own terms and privacy policies. We have no control over how Google Analytics handles your data. Therefore, we recommend reviewing their policies to understand their practices fully.


COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission and the United States Consumer Protection Agency, enforce the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.


Do we let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from children under 13?

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old. If you believe we have inadvertently collected information from a child, please contact us to have it removed.


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.

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 in-site notification
  • We will notify users in compliance with applicable state and federal regulations.

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue 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 government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.



The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

If  you choose to provide your email address to subscribe to our newsletter, we will use your email address to: 

  • Send monthly newsletters and occasional emails about adult education resources. 

To be in accordance with CANSPAM, we agree to:

  • If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
