Blueprint Education is strongly committed to protecting all information collected through this Site. The following privacy statement ("Statement") discloses the privacy practices for BlueprintEducation.org ("Site"), a Site owned and operated by Blueprint Education. Blueprint Education reserves the right to change the privacy statement at any time.
Automatically collected information - the Site automatically collects publicly accessible information from users' browsers such as browser type, IP address, and a hostname. This information is used for fine-tuning and trouble-shooting purposes.
Cookies - The Site does not use any persisting cookies to store information on your computer. Instead, the platform utilizes "session cookies," which store encrypted authentication information in the browser memory for the duration of a specific session. After the browser is closed, all cookies will be deleted.
Personal information – To access and use certain portions of the Site, you must provide personally identifiable information. Personally, identifiable information means any information that is associated with your personal identities such as an address, telephone number, user Ids, passwords, email address, billing and payment information, and communications records. You can make changes to this information by following the directions on the Site. You must be over 18 to register and use the Site. We will not intentionally collect or use personal information from users that we have reason to believe are under 18 years of age.
Blueprint Education has implemented commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. The Site will not share or distribute any Data, except (1) for the purpose of communicating with you when it is necessary for completing the transactions you have authorized, including but not limited to providing such information to data processors or mailing services, (2) when it is necessary for employees, agents and contractors to operate or maintain the Site or to correct a technical problem; (3) when it is necessary to verify the existence or condition of your account with a financial institution, credit bureau or another third party; (4) for abuse management or when it is permitted or required by law, including but not limited to responding to a court order or compliance with any regulatory authority; or (5) as permitted by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act ("FERPA").
Under special circumstances, we may, and you authorize us to, disclose personally identifiable information without your consent if we believe, in our sole discretion, it is reasonable to do so to satisfy laws (such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, as amended) or government regulations, comply with legal process or law enforcement requests, commence legal actions for violation of the Site or to protect Blueprint Education's rights or property.
When users submit sensitive information via the Site, Blueprint Education uses commercially reasonable efforts to protect their information both online and offline. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to use your personal information for improper purposes. Thus, you acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.
Security - We use reasonable precautions to secure the personally identifiable information we maintain about you on computer servers in an appropriately controlled, secure environment. All transactions on the Site are protected by encryption software called SSL up to 256-bit encryption if accessed through Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5, Mozilla Firefox 1.0, and Netscape Navigator 6.0 and higher. If and when our registration and payment forms ask users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or Social Security number), that information will be encrypted and protected with SSL. To learn more about SSL, follow this link: http://www.openssl.org. While we attempt to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining this information. Blueprint Education is not responsible for any breach of its security or for the actions of any third parties that may obtain any personal information. You are prohibited from violating or attempting to violate security for or otherwise interfering with the operation of the Site. You may not access information not intended for your use or access.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to protect personal user information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) will be granted access to personally identifiable information.
External links - The Site may contain links to a third-parties web site; Blueprint Education is not responsible for the content of these sites, nor their privacy practices. Every visitor should check these sites' privacy statements before submitting any information.
