Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 13 years of age except with the verified consent of a school district, administrator, teacher or parent as is permitted by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, and no part of our Website or Services is designed to attract people under 13 years of age except with the applicable consent of a school district, administrator, teacher or parent. If we later learn that a user is under 13 years of age and accessed the Website, Dashboard or the PDR Program without appropriate school district, administrator, teacher or parent consent, we will take steps to remove that user's Personal Information from our databases and to prevent the user from utilizing the Website and the Services.
How We Collect Information.
In general, the Personal Information we gather enables us to provide the Services to you and helps us learn more about the use of the Website, our Services, and/or the PDR Program. We collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily at registration and in the course of your use of the Website, Services, and the PDR Program. To use certain features of the Website, we require you to create an “Account” by providing your name, email address, school information and a password. When you communicate with us by sending us an email, we will collect and store any information that is contained in your communications with us. Any information you choose to provide for our use should reflect how much you want other Users to know about you. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but this may limit the features of the Website or Services you are able to use.
PD Reimagined is a teacher wellness program, which may include the provision of polls, surveys and other feedback tools as well as audio/video capture of virtual summits and in person events. When you participate in giving feedback or when you attend our virtual summits or events you are consenting to your information being captured and stored by us. You understand that virtual summits will be recorded, and your name, likeness and audio/video capture may be visible to other participants and recorded and shared on our member Dashboard so other participants and users of our websites and/or Services may see them. Please remember this and be thoughtful about what you make available. If you do not want to be recorded, you have the option not to participate or to turn off your video and rename you username on the chosen video conferencing software.
If you tell us where you are (e.g., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location when you search), we may collect, store and use that information. Of course, your location may also be apparent from your feedback shares, or from your audio/video at virtual Summits.
We collect the following types of Anonymous Information:Information Collected by Our Servers. To make our Website and Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.
Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Website, track users’ movements around the Website, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Website or the Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests.
Pixel Tags. In addition, we may use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, which are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users’ Personal Data.
Flash LSOs. When we post media, third parties may use local shared objects, known as “Flash Cookies,” to store your preferences for volume control or to personalize certain features. Flash Cookies are different from browser Cookies because of the amount and type of data and how the data is stored. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash Cookies.

Mobile Device. We may collect information about the computer or device you use to access our Services, including the hardware model, operating system and version, MAC address, unique device identifier, phone number, and mobile network information. In addition, the Services may access your device's image storage applications, with your consent, to facilitate your use of certain features of the Services. For more information about how you can control our access to these applications, please see "Your Choices" below.
Disclosure – Analytics.
We may also use third party tracking services to help us analyze how users use the Website and Services. These services collect only the unique device identifier assigned to your mobile device, rather than your name or other personally identifying information, and use it to collect information such as how often users visit our Website or use our Services and what features they use. We only use this information to improve our Services. We do not combine the information generated thereby with your Personal Information and we do not associate you in any way with your device identifier. Only these services know and associate you (on a non-identifiable basis) with your identifier.
How We Use Information.
We may use your Personal Information to:
- Administer your Account;
- Provide you with Services and customer support;
- Tailor the features and content of the Services to you;
- Respond to your requests, resolve disputes and/or troubleshoot problems;
- Communicate with you about the Services; and
- Evaluate the overall impact of the PDR Program, including but not limited to teacher wellbeing, teacher retention, job satisfaction, and student outcomes.
We may also use your Personal Information to create Anonymous Information records by excluding information that makes the information personally identifiable to you.
We use the Anonymous Information we collect to analyze trends, administer and improve the Services, track users’ movements in the Website, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the Log Files may be collected so that when you use the Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests.
How We Disclose Information.
We require that all third parties with whom we share identifiable data treat your personal information as fully confidential and to fully comply with all applicable privacy laws and regulations, including but not limited to the EU General Data Protection Regulation, UK Data Protection Act and similar consumer legislation from time to time in place.
We reserve the right to disclose Anonymous Information publicly without restriction.
Controlling Your Information.
Information Disclosed to Third Parties
We take data security very seriously, and take all commercially reasonable technical, physical, and administrative security measures to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. Such measures vary depending on the sensitivity of the information at issue.
