PRIVACY POLICY – WWW.ALLKINDSOFMINDS.ORG and WWW.SCHOOLSATTUNED.ORG

This Privacy Policy describes the types of information collected and the manner in which such information is collected and used by All Kinds of Minds, its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, the “Institute”) on www.allkindsofminds.org and www.schoolsattuned.org (the “Website”). The Website enables users to explore the Institute’s resources and programs intended to help students who are struggling to succeed in school.

The Institute acknowledges that the disclosure of personally identifiable information (“PII”) is a sensitive and serious issue, and we consider it imperative to protect the privacy of registrants of the Website (“Members”) and its other users (“Users”). Therefore, the Institute will collect and use PII in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy, and for the sole purpose of enabling you to get the maximum benefit from the Website. Please keep in mind that no PII collected from our Members or Users will ever be sold or leased to any third party, except as set forth herein, without the prior consent of such Member or User.

1. Access; Registration
The Institute offers access to the Website to the general public without the need to register as a Member. However, you must register as a Member in order to gain access to certain features, which are unavailable to Users. In order to register, you must provide certain PII such as your name, street address, phone number, email address, job description, username, and password. All PII which you provide through the Website will be stored on the Institute’s servers.

2. Use
2.1 Certain features of the Website enable Members and/or Users to disclose, submit, publish, display, or otherwise transmit directly or indirectly ("Post") on the Website messages, comments, reviews, listings, submissions, or any other content (“Content”) that such User or Member wishes to make available to others. Please keep in mind that all information you Post to such areas of the Website is publicly viewable and is subject to our Terms of Use Agreement located at www.allkindsofminds.org/legal.aspx. Do not Post anything to the Website that you do not want other people to see.
2.2 Members and Users also may submit PII to the Website by conducting surveys and registering for conferences and special events. Such PII will not be made publicly available through the Website, but will be used by the Institute and third parties working on its behalf to fulfill your requests. For instance, when you execute a purchase through the Website, your credit card information will be shared with our merchant provider in order to complete your transaction.

3. Third Parties
3.1 The Institute will not sell or lease your PII to third parties without your express consent. We may, however share your PII with third parties under certain circumstances, including:
 a) if sharing your PII is necessary to execute a specific request by you.
 b) if sharing your PII is required by law or is necessary to respond to a subpoena, warrant or court order, or to protect the rights of the Institute or its Members and/or Users; and
 c) if you give us express permission to share your PII with third parties.
3.2 The Institute may share demographic information with third parties on an anonymous and aggregated basis (i.e., without telling such parties your identity), subject to this Privacy Policy. One of the reasons that the Institute may do this is to improve the Website’s effectiveness.

4. Links
You may occasionally see links on the Website to other websites. The Institute is not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites you may visit through a link found on the Website. If you provide information directly to a party other than the Institute, please keep in mind that different privacy policies may cover those parties' use of your information. You should always review a website’s privacy policy before disclosing your PII.

5. Cookies and Log Files
The Website may use cookies and web log files to track Member usage on an anonymous and aggregated basis.

6. Children
This Website is not intended for use by persons under eighteen (18) years of age. If the Institute learns that a Member is under the age of eighteen (18), appropriate steps will be taken to remove the Member's PII from the database and restrict such individual’s access as a Member of the Website.

7. Security
The Institute has implemented security measures to protect PII from loss, misuse and alteration. We use industry-standard practices such as encrypted storage, firewalls and password protection systems to safeguard the confidentiality of your PII. Your information is only available to those employees of the Institute who need it to perform their responsibilities.

8. You Have Control Over Your Personal Information
The success of the Institute is directly related to your trust in our privacy practices. Although we encourage our Members and/or Users to share information to get the most benefit from the Website, we provide you with the opportunity of benefiting from many of the Website’s features without having to submit any PII. Although we provide powerful tools for you to share information, remember it is always your choice whether or not to share certain information with other Members or the general public. Members can update or otherwise change their PII posted on the “Registration” page and change sign-up preferences (whether or not to receive an e-mail newsletter or be part of a mailing list, etc.) by accessing the “My Information” page.

9. Changes to this Privacy Policy
